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.

I never leave home without it. Was a bit concerned after reading previous reviews that my lips would flake, but I always use a lip scrub/exfoliater/warm washcloth on lips prior to applying. Also, I apply a thin coat before getting into the shower, as hot, steamy showers can actually dry out lips.

Was looking for something to replace my EOS ball, and this was definitely not it. It is very slimy for me. Maybe better for use overnight? It just didnt really do much more for me then Carmex or chapstick. I guess if you're not on a quest for a "holy grail" lip balm, this may be great. But if you're like me and need something amazing at a good price, dont waste your hope on this stuff, it will only break your heart

Blistex Lip Medex 7g tub

I'm prone to cold sores and dry lips. I purchased this product and found it very useful throughout the whole year. I'm in Canada so we have every season - spring, summer, fall and winter. Especially during winter, I find my lips very dry and cracked. The menthol is strong at first but you know it's working. When I have a cold sore, I put it on right away and within 1-2 days the cold sore is gone. When I use other cold sore products, they are not as effective or prolong the sore and gets scabby. At least with this product, it has a multi-purpose and it works! Thanks for reading!

I have a bad cold right now and this stuff is the only thing that is soothing my dry lips. I don't mind that it's in a pot, as I don't take it to work with me, it stays at home.

blistex lip medex, WHY didn't I discover you sooner??? For years I've had a vicious cycle of dry, cracked lips- specifically in the corner. This stuff heals and soothes dry, cracked lips quickly. I've tried so many lip balms, chapsticks, etc and never thought that this cheap little thing would be my solution to my problem, but it is! It runs about 2-3$ and is an absolute STEAL.

I feel the same way as the reviewer below, I really could not live without this balm! I have been through so many beauty products in my life, I can rarely stick to one product for more than a week these days, with the exception of this. I have literally used this morning and night, everyday, for as long as I can remember. It's amazing! It goes on smooth, untinted (I really don't like lip chaps/balms that leave a color behind), instantly hydrates and I don't have to apply again until before I go to bed after brushing my teeth. You only need a little bit at a time and one tub lasts me about 6 months almost. I haven't noticed a scent that some people have mentioned. Maybe I'm just used to it after all these years. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone. The price is great, I spend about 6 or 7 dollars a year on this stuff. I don't have a single complaint. This is seriously the best!! I hope they don't ever change a thing about this!

I can not live without this. For example, fall just hit and we're on day 4 of cold weather and I couldn't find any of mine, so I picked another one up. I will never live without this. EVER.

looks "professional" but not moisturizing enough for dry chapped lips like mine.
