Finally. Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy with this balm it literally saved my life I think I owe it my first born or something because honestly it healed me. I had the worst case of dry lips because of the bad weather and matte lipsticks that I can't stay away from and applying it overnight made me feel so much better. I only wish it came in a tube so it was a bit more convenient to apply but whatever because I love this. I love the cooling menthol feel to it, it really feels like it's doing something (and the something it amazing).

I have tried the most expensive of the balms put there but nothing beats the efficacy of the product. I will not buy anything else but this!! I have found my HG. And i have the worst chapped, dry lips!

I first tried this stuff when I had an awful fever a few years ago and my lips were chapped and peeling. My mom handed me a pot of this stuff and I've loved it ever since. My lips get pretty dry over the winter, so I use more than I usually would overnight and my lips end up moisturized in the morning. It doesn't have a taste, but it has a menthol scent that I actually like (though some might be put off by it). It has a cooling effect, so it's pretty good to put on after exfoliating your lips. My only gripe with this is that it comes in a pot form, which isn't the most sanitary, and it also has a bit of slip to it, meaning that it's a bit glossier on the lips as well. It's cheap and I've repurchased it so many times, I only wish that they'd make this formula in a stick form.

I use the DCT in the pot on a regular basis but I wanted something in stick format. Blistex doesn't make DCT in stick format so I got Lip Medex in stick format. The formula for Lip Medex is more strongly medicated than DCT, but its a great product to have for emergency situations. Its really minty and soothing for dry, uncomfortable lips. Definitely will repurchase!! :)

This stuff works great on your lips, however, I personally don't really like the shiny/glossy effect it leaves and prefer a more matte chapstick for my lips.With that being said, don't entirely disregard this product if you also prefer a matte balm.

Whenever I have a runny/sore/blistered nose from being sick (the tissues become abrasive after excessive blowing) I slather a bit of this just under my nose and around the nostril area (with clean hands of course).

Not only does this product alleviate the stuffiness that comes with being sick (because of the cooling methanol) it also keeps it lubricated and prevents loss of moisture after hours of blowing your nose.

I keep this around for anytime I get sick; I will also occasionally use it on my lips if chapstick isn't enough— it's powerful stuff!

I had a situation where I had chapping of my lips like never before. So chapped that I couldn't even drink water coz it hurt so bad! THIS was the only thing that helped. I am eternally grateful for this balm. Just wish it came in a stick form for easy application on the go. It being tasteless isnt something that I'm bothered by.

Got this for a dollar at my local Dollar Tree, and it works great. It doesn't irritate my lips and when my lips are really dry I can feel a cool, soothing sensation.

Great for on-the-go!

PROS:
This lip balm is wonderful for any chapped lips that may be painful since it provides instant pain relief. It also provides your lips with a great shine.

CONS:
The only thing that I didn't like about this lip balm was the tub container, but if you don't mind using your fingers, then this is a great lip balm!

I love this product as a standby beside my bed, in my dresser and my purse. It moisturizes well and has a great consistency. I'm always wearing lip balm and have tried many brands, but this one suits me best in terms of quality, price and packaging! Much, much better than EOS. Much better!

I have always seen people using this, but today was the first day I have ever used it for myself. I thought it would be a great product because of the way everyone speaks so highly of it, but I was honestly disappointed with it. I'm a lip balm junkie and I'm always on the hunt looking for new lip balms to try out and beat out my HG which is the Aquafina lip balm. Sadly though this didn't even come close. In a lip balm I like for the product to go on my lips and smooth any dry patches I may have. This seems to make them feel rougher...also it tastes bad. I gave it 3 lipsticks because honestly I think it's just me. I think for someone who isn't very particular about their lips this would be a great product to try. It's also super cheap too so you can't really beat it but I just really didn't like it. I'd rather just stick with Carmex which is second to my HG.
