I think this is so worth it! They have many flavors like this one (no flavor), cherry, rose, mint, and coconut (my favorite!!!)
With Vaseline, the ones I've seen and owned are the ones you need to dip your fingers in. With the Balm dot calm, you can squeeze it out and apply with your clean fingers or if you're out and about & don't want to use your fingers, you can just squeeze and place the product on your lips.
If you really want to try, I think you should totally give these a chance. I prefer the flavored ones over the non flavor one. Bare in mind that the rose and cherry are colored!
