I love this little miracle! I have had super dry, cracked, chapped lips all my life...always receiving chapsticks and lipbalms as gifts from friends and family alike. But nothing ever worked, some even dried my poor lips out some more. About 3 years ago while pegnant w/ my daughter I went by the drugstore to pick up some more Plamer's cocoa butter lotion for my itchy belly I saw the stick sitting there on the shelf and thought what the heck, I'll give it a shot. I'm soo glad I did, it instantly felt soothing and by the next day my lips were soft and supple...something they never were! Now I keep one everywhere; nightstand, purse, car, bathroom drawer...etc. It's perfect for everyday use and especially at night right before bed so I can wake up to perfect lips. I even have my husband who hates the waxy feel of lipbalms addicted to this stuff...not to mention friends and family who at first laugh at me applying lipbalm from such a large tube, but once they try it they too are hooked instantly!! Try one today if you've been searching for something to cure those dry lips or other dry areas! Truly a great buy!! EDIT: I have been using Lansinoh Lanolin (yes!the balm for breastfeeding moms) instead and I think it is my new HG.
EDIT: I no longer use either Lansinoh Lanolin or Palmers Cocoa Butter Stick...they both were starting to taste rancid and I've recently been introduced to Lypsyl and it's great!
Best Lip balm ever!! I keep one in my bedside table, my purse, my kitchen junk drawer, and my makeup kit. It's not waxy or greasy, very moisturizing and smells really really good!
Great stuff, like everyone else said, smells nice, makes my lips soft and moist looking and doesn't feel waxy or tacky. Goes on nice and sheer but with enough coverage. Quite cheap, like 2.50 at Ulta and it will last forever! Will definately repurchase if it ever runs out. I am just using it as a lipbalm I have not really tried it on other areas but cuticles does seem like a good idea.
I bought this little "swivel stick" thinking it was lip balm but this is not the "lip balm" under product reviews. This can be used on any dry /rough/ or chapped skin. I use this to moisturize my cuticles and elbows and it does a great job with no greasy residue. For my lips I use lots and lots it lasts a long time, gives a nice sheen/moist natural look & makes them kissably soft. The smell is amazing!!! Out of all my high and low end glosses & balms this is the one I use the most and it has the best smell to me. The scent is cocoa-vanilla-marshamllowy which is out of this world. I cannot say enough about this.. and its in a very generous size tube/stick .14g looks like large glue stick and I have not used 1/4 of this over the past 6 months this stuff is that long lasting. Would highly recommend especially for winter or for guys you know who hate the taste of reg chapstick continued >>
I love this!! So much better than the Carmex I was using. Carmex was moisturizing for a few hours but then my lips would get dry and cracked again, from the menthol most likely. The Palmer's is so moisturizing, it gives my lips a nice soft shine. I will buy this again for sure!!
I have one for home and another in my purse. It does a good job of keeping lips moisturized and healing chapped skin (does not break me out). And I love that little burst of chocolatey goodness when it's first applied :-)
I love this! It feels velvety soft on my lips and I also use it on dry chapped spots on my hands. It smells divine yet has no flavor at all.
I discovered this product back in the early 90's and have been using it ever since. Sometimes for a change I will use Labello another good lip balm. This stick is great to use on lips in the winter. I have not had chapped lips since using it.
When I first saw this in K-mart, i knew i had to have it. Plus i needed a great chapstick, but it was such a plus that it came with scent of cocoa butter!! Yum, this made my lips look shiny but not too over dramatic, moisterized,and looking great; and it lasts for months! I guess the only 2 cons is, the price--its overpriced if you tell me. And i guess the look of the product, (the container) is well, big. I use this in public areas and people always ask me, is that a gluestick youre using on your lips?! Haha, but overall GREAT product for lips!
Tastes and smells wonderful, but I have to reapply very often. The price is cheap, though, and it still lasts quite a while even though I have to reapply it a lot. The applicator is big and looks sort of like a glues stick. I would repurchase.
