I do not use this product very often, but I NEVER go anywhere without it. Not only does it help tremendously with chapped lips, but it instantly soothes extremely dry (and painful!) lips. You know that feeling when your lips are so dry you can't help but lick them, but licking them only makes them even more dry? I most definitely do, and Carmex, is the only product that has ever been able to get my lips back normal super quickly! The smell isn't wonderful, but when your lips are drier than the Sahara, trust me-- you won't mind at all.
