I love this stuff and can't get through winter without it. Every year, as soon as the winds pick up and the temperatures drop, my lips dry out and chap. These Northeast dry winters don't help at all. If I see that I've been neglecting my lips or even if I'm wearing a matte lipstick (I'm looking at you, Ruby Woo) for a couple of days, I have to wear this to bed or else I wake up looking like I made out with a box grater.
I'd buy this buy the caseful if it ever was discontinued.

I was lucky to snag this for free from Zoya (had to pay shipping)! It's a very thick white balm that goes clear on the lips. It has a bit of a menthol-y taste/smell/feel. It's very thick and thus stays on the lips. This is the kind of balm you use at night to repair your lips when they're chapped, not something glossy and pretty, like the last reviewer said. At first, it was very hard for me to get the product out of the tube. There was a lot of squeezing and frustration involved without much payoff. After awhile, it started coming out more easily and now I'm having no issues. This made my overly chapped, wintertime lips feel absolutely new again. I absolutely love it. Will buy this again and again, it's a product that has quickly reached HG status for me.

This is a great lip balm, BUT it depends why you need it. If you need it because your lips are medically chapped and causing you discomfort, then this is your product. It really helped me get over chapped lips caused by getting new braces. If you are looking for something glossy and pretty, maybe you should keep looking. Note: this contains lanolin, an animal product, which is known for its skin-healing properties.
I paid $14 (a lot) for my tube. It has a menthol smell and slight menthol flavor, which is easy to forgive since this is more like a medicine, anyway.

stupid thick cream that dosent do anything (plus it has menthol in it witch make the lipd dry!)
listin girls (and guys) if you are like me looking for the GREATEST EVER TREATMENT FOR THE LIPS then just follow what i do and i promise you that you will have an amazing,soft,beautiful,luscious lips!!!
so after years of experimenting and trying ALL the brands out there here is what i do......
i use the "SKIN CEUTICALS-antioxidant lip repair",this is a anti aging "serum" treatment for the lips and what it does is that it is a penatrating multi vitamin and anti oxidant serum that hydrates to the deepist layers of the lips and it plumps my lips really nice.(read my review on it here at MUA).
first off ,every other night i love to exfoliate my lips(this gives your lips the smoooth texture cause it sweeps the dead skin cells away and that means your lipstick will go on smooooth and beautiful) so what i use for that is the "LUSH- lip scrub" and remember after you do the scrub your lips will be very dry so you MUST put a cream on top of them!!!
after the exfoliation i apply the "SKIN CEUTICALS-antioxidant lip repair" serum and then wait 5 min and then.......
i apply the AMAZING "darphin age defying lip balm"
(now this has got to be the most hydrating-heavy duty lip balm i ever had.)
it is an intense lip balm that i use for night time use only.
i just use this as a nightime beauty lip treatment,guys this is really amazing stuf!!!
so thats it girls,that is what i do:
"lush-lip scrub", every other day
"skin ceauticals-antioxidant lip repair",as a serum underneath a lip balm
"darphin age defying lip balm" as a nightly lip tratment(after the "SC" lip serum)
"cle de peau-lip treatment"-,as a lip balm in the morning/daytime(i use this as a "daytime" balm becouse its light,not gloosy,not waxy balm and it gives an amazing feel to the lips,now this would be your "carry around lip balm" as you can smooth it on the lips whenever you feel you need to)
have fun guys and if you dont find somthing from these products and you dont know where to order them from then just send me a message and write me what country your from and ill be happy to tell you where to order it from online.

made my lips sooooo soft and smooth!

It works! I have tried TONS of chapsticks in my life, as my lips, no matter the season, are always dry and chapped and gross. I discovered a while ago that the best route is a thick moisturizer worn overnight, like vaseline or Eucerin. Those works OKAY but not great. Qtica works much better, though! I noticed a measurable difference after the first use, and I feel with continued usage they are healing more, looking much more soft, even, and hydrated. Feels thick on, and has a slight tingly feeling, which I find pleasant. Would repurchase. Price is reasonable.

Lip Heaven in a tube.
I have very large, full lips, so when they get chapped, it's majorly painful! This winter, between the cold and a lot of anxiety, they've become unbearable from being bitten and then licked to soothe, then rebitten, then going into the freezing wind! After nothing - I mean NOTHING - worked to heal them, I turned to this. Well, thank heavens I did! It is so thick and creamy and luxurious. It really does stay on your lips, despite rubbing them together, drinking (at least from a bottle), and talking. I like to massage it in as well. I noticed a huge difference as soon as I started using it.
I also love that it is in a tube! Pots can be very messy and unsanitary. It does seem to take work to get out of the tube, but it is definitely worth it. I love it - totally justifiable price point for this miracle in a tube.

This is the only medicated smelling lip balm I use as I normally worry about menthol irritating my lips. But this stuff gets a free pass and a 5 because it's so creamy and hydrating. It really protects and heals even in sub zero, windy weather. None of my other lip balms have the cling that this has. It stays on and shields your lips-- a heavy duty lip balm and hg.

I get majorly peely dry lips, in the winter and this is a godsend. Most balms I've tries just sit on my lips and moisturize the parts of my lips that aren't super dry. After the first night I used this I woke up and was able to easily rub all the old dry skin off my lips with a washcloth. Usually I have to really scrub to get the flakies off. Like others have mentioned this is a little tough to get out of the tube, but I love that it's in a tube not a pot. If it gets really cold it's impossible to get out, just put it in your back pocket for a minute and it will soften right up. I use this before bed and when I'm around the house only, because it has a medicinal/herbal scent and leaves a white color on your lips (which fades fairly quickly as it sinks in). Overall I love this and would totally call it my HG winter lip balm.
