My lips have been so dry this winter, so I decided to buy this and give it a shot. Cheap packaging as the entire shaft was inside the cover when I finally opened it, but it was easy to fix. Within five m8 utes, my lips felt normal again, I don’t care for the odor as there seems to be a trace of castor oil, but you don’t notice it after a while. I will definitely keep this on hand. Much better than any chapstick I’ve ever bought.
