I am currently in my 5th month on accutane and my lips have been so severely dry. They crack they peel and they bleed :( I have tried EVERY lip balm/ Chapstick you name it, that there is out there.. Till one day I grabbed this product from shoppers drug mart and honestly over night my lips were back to normal!!! I even notice I don't always need to put so much on!! ( if ur on accutane than u know how many times a day ur applying Chapstick! Lol) all in all it is a amazing product! And on or off accutane I'm going to continue purchasing aveeno intense lip therapy:)
I love this because it gives you a great non-chapped lip overnight if you apply it the night before. Or even under a lipstick or gloss. It has a interesting smell that is strong but it dosent smell bad. I love the feeling when its on your lips because it feels kind of minty so you can feel it working! I would recommend this if you get easily chapped lips like I do! I like the packaging because it is easy to apply.
This is the best lip balm I have ever used. However, I have not been able to find it lately and upon writing the company, I received the following response. I am so upset and have yet to find a suitable replacement. =(

This is definitely the best lip balm I've ever used. While I often stray to other brands for more interesting scents and consistencies (like LUSH, which smells divine, or the body shop, which has a lot of delicious options) I always find myself coming back to this one when my lips are in serious need of repair.
As soon as I put it on I feel my lips getting better..it is the perfect consistency, neither too thick or too slick. My favourite way to use it is to put it on before bed, and the next morning I can still feel it on my lips. Any dry skin that I had sloughs off easily to reveal fresh, soft skin. If I put on a little more in the morning, my lips feel great all day.
This certainly isn't very fancy, but it does the job. It is long lasting, creamy, and provides instant relief. I don't mind the smell either, kind of a vanilla mint scent with a definite menthol/medicinal background. Not nearly as bad as carmex.
I should mention that this is a review for the formula that comes in a pot. I have also tried the one that comes in the stick but found that it wasn't nearly as healing or moisturizing--it just felt like a regular chapstick to me.
Love this lip balm! I have been using this forever and I can't remember how long since I first used it. I have went through more then 10 of these already for over a long period of time. Nothing can compare and this is the only lip balm that works for me. I have tried Carmex but it didn't do anything for me.
This is by far the best chapstick I have ever used. It doesn't irritate my lips and leaves them moisturized for a long time. With other chapsticks I noticed that sometimes will get a white filmy line across the opening of my mouth which is NOT cool. This aveeno chapstick has never done that. Unlike a lot of the other reviewers, the smell and taste has never bothered me. But one time while I had just put the chapstick on, my bf drank out of my glass of wine by mistake and commented that my wine tasted different and not so good even though we both had the same wine from the same bottle so I guess he tasted my chapstick haha. The reason that I give it 1 lippy is because I recently found out that Aveeno tests on animals and for that I will not repurchase.
My favorite lip balm. It contains natural oatmeal, jojoba oil, shea butter, and petrolatum and menthol -- in short, all the good stuff that can do wonder do the most chapped lips. My must have product during winter because my lips would crack terribly without it. Would purchase again! Highly recommended!
This is my HG lip balm. I can't go without it. The moisture lasts and don't have to reapply often. I don't love the new packaging and price, but I can live them because it's the best lip balm I have ever tried and always find the need repurchase. It also has a nice shine and if you don't mind the tingly sensation I would definitely recommend it!
This helped me survive a harsh Canadian winter! It's the best I've tried for dry, flaky chapped lips. It's a little menthol-y - but not overpowering - you only briefly notice the smell once you put it on. While it tingles a bit at the start, it's quite gentle & doesn't burn like other products. I bought the pot, but think maybe next time I'll try the chapstick version because it may be easier to use.
Wow is all I can say. I used to use Aquaphor and Paula's Choice Lip and Body Treatment Balm, but this beats both! I usually hate lip products that are minty/tingly (Burt's Bees, for example), but this lip balm doesn't actually irritate my lips. It tingles a bit when I put it on before bed, and my lips stay MOIST until morning! This simply does not happen with any other lip balm I've tried. I got it for free with the Aveeno Skin Relief Body Wash at the Canadian Superstore. What a great find!
