This is the best lip moisturizer out there at any price! I am a bit of a lip balm addict so at any given moment I have five or six sticks of balm open and rolling around my pockets and purse. But when it's winter and my lips are chapped and cracking, I will always reach for the Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment.
It is soothing on sore lips and it sinks in right away; providing relief.
I discovered this many years ago when I was taking Accutane. One of the side effects was terribly dry lips. This was the only thing that helped; and I'm loyal to this day.
Such a great product!!! I kinda hate chapsticks at this point, they are all waxy and sit on my lips, no matter if they are organic or not. This however is a cream and SINKS in perfectly, and makes my lips feel super soft, not greasy, very moisturized! Great for under a lipstick. Such a perfect product for the price. Everyone should have one in their purse. :-)
There are over 200 reviews on this. I don't think I'm going to be able to add anything someone else hasn't already said. It's the best thing for dry lips. Apply it 10 minutes before applying makeup. Wipe this off first and lipstick will go on beautifully and your lips will feel great.
My mother has used this forever and now it feels that I have been using it forever, too! I recently rediscovered my love for it when I actually read the box and saw it suggested use for lipstick base. Love. There is nothing like this and although I love my Carmex and Vaseline, Blistex is in its own category of lip ointment.
This stuff is amazing!!! It is my daily lip balm. It probably is not meant for daily use, but I am addicted and cannot live without it. It moisturizes and soothes the most dry lips. It does have a slight medicinal taste, but I will live it since the result and feeling are better than any lip ointment I have ever tried. I recently has a fever blister and I continued to use this and it was gone in four days. I would recommend this product to anyone with dry lips or anyone that just wants perfectly smooth hydrated lips. Love this stuff!
I am currently taking Isotretinoin for acne and my lips were in excruciating pain from bleeding/cracking etc. After doing a little reasearch here I thought I would try this in the hopes that it would provide some relief. This stuff is simply amazing!! I use this at night and Blistex Lip Medex (in stick form) during the day and in only 24 hours I've seen a dramatic difference. The menthol provided instant relief to the horrific burning sensation I was experiencing. Not only does it work but it's super cheap....$4 for an 11 gram tube in Canada. It does have a bit of a medicinal smell/taste but it does not bother me at all and it's consistency is similar to cream/lotion so it's a little messy when first applied until it fully absorbs. The economy size tube requires you to dispense a small amount onto your finger and then apply to lips which is a bit of a pain but I only use it at night so not a big deal. THANK YOU BLISTEX...I'm a lifelong customer! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this stuff!
I loooooooooove this! It's super cheap, is SO much more effective than any flavored or yummy smelling lip balms. Sure, it doesn't smell or taste (trust me on this) the best but it does work WONDERS!
I use this on my lips every day, all day... This leaves them very hydrated and smooth. I also put a small amount on and let dry before I put my lipstick on, it acts as a base..
Blistex is great if you have extremely dry lips or a horrible cold sore that simply won't go away. I bough this lip ointment at walmart for $2.17 and it lasted me almost a month. I had a very stubborn cold sore on my upper lip and this provided so much relief to it. I switched from using carmex to this simply because of the strong smell that is in carmex products. They are both great and i will continue to buy both for the relief to dryness and cold sores. You should pick yourself up some.
Blistex works on COLD SoREs! :)
I've used blistex for years to treat extra dry cracked lips, but never on my cold sores...Until I saw my husband use it and it worked better than ABREVA!
So I finally tried and it truly does make a cold sore smaller, heal quick, and not develop into the puss stage and peeling/bleeding stage. It soothes the cold sore so you don't feel the tingly itchy feeling.
I will keep buying Blistex from now on and will never buy abreva again. Abreva dried quick and left me feeling itchy. It only worked if you used it immediately on first signs of the cold sore, and it still led to peeling of the skin and bleeding! I have a scar from one time , even after using abreva. With blistex-NO scar.
Blistex works and costed about $3.99 on sale (economy size, which I can cut open at the end to finish it all)
Abreva costs $19.99 for a stupid metal tube that's puny in size, and cannot open it up when it's almost done.
Try Blistex next time u have a cold sore! Apply about 4 times a day for good results.
