I LOVE this stuff and can't go a day without it. I apply it every night before bed and I wake up with my lips feeling sooo nice and moisturised. I've come to love the tingly sensation however the first time I used it it burned so bad I ended up wiping it off... (hang in there guys.. it's worth it, I swear)
This is my HG lip balm for everything from super dry and chapped lips to lips that are simply in need of a little daily moisture. I love the smell of this, oddly enough - refreshing and medical are the best words I can think of to describe it. I know some people can't stand it but maybe they'll come to love it like I came to love (and became desensitised to) the tingly / burning feeling?
I have repurchased this countless times and cannot go anywhere without bringing this with me. Could not recommend this more!

Love this, use it every night when my lips are dry or chapped and they're fine by morning. Also use it under some lipsticks and it prevents my lips drying out but makes lipstick bleed a bit more. Smells really good, vanilla, but the smell lasts a while, put some in my boyfriends beard without him knowing lol and he could still smell it an hour later. Also tastes quite nice, bit of a mission to not east it off your lips :)

I have the stick one - nice matte finish and has a good SPF, plus it was only $2 so can't really complain to be honest

This is the only long lasting lip conditioner that works. I love it. I have tried Palmers and Nivea and other brands but none have the same staying power. I only like this one, I do not like the sticks or tubes.

This is my "go to" product when my lips are chapped and dry, especially in winter. It might not be the only product that works, but it is the one (for me) to work the fastest in ensuring i have smooth lipstick applicable lips. Although it does provide a tingling sensation post-application which some may not enjoy.
In Australia, I am currently paying over $10 for one pot, although it will last around a year.

I repurchased so many times! Really love this lip balm. I use this every morning and night with clear hands because I do think it is a little unsanitary to stick your fingers in the pot if your hands aren't clean. This gives your lips a cooling mentolly feeling which I love. My sister had a period where her lips where really dry and chapped and this really helped her restore the moisture back into them. Applying this at night and waking up the next morning really gave me baby soft lips. My HG lip balm

I have been through so many tubs of this stuff. I have completely lost track of the number. But it's not my HG - I haven't found that yet. I'll go through the pros and cons. My lips are very dry and they chap easily. I exfoliate them several times weekly.
Soothing - if lips are so dry it's become painful this will ease the pain.
Smoothing - formula smooths out the lips and flaking lips will take on a smooth appearance a few mins after application.
SPF - and it is an effective SPF. As someone who has actually experienced sunburnt lips I consider a high SPF essential.
Pot - means you can use all of the product. I circumvent any hygiene issues by making sure I always was my hands before applying, never re-dip a finer and never share it with anyone.
Finish - gives a wet look effect without shimmer. I have lips with a naturally deep colour so I don't feel like I am wearing this product at the expense of my look.
Smell - like a hospital. Vile.
Taste - like it smells. Vile. Like sucking on a vaseline lollipop soaked in dettol. (On the other hand, these clinical stinks do reinforce the message that it's working.)
Smoothing - formula frankly produces a burning sensation on the lips. Also that constant stretching of the skin cannot be good for it and I'm sure that constant use will loosen the skin on my lips over time and make fine lines a bigger problem than they have to be. (A recent realisation; I have cut down on using it lately for this reason.)
Superficial solution - not actually getting moisture into the lips, just smoothing their surface.
Packaging - tracks on the lid poorly designed. It is way too easy to close the lid on this product in such a way that it's impossible to get it off ever again.
Effect on skin other than lips - creates bumps around the lipline sometimes. Like blackheads on steroids or something? Don't quite know what they are but they're not good.
So, yeah, more pros than cons. But, methinks, beware long term high-frequency use.

Love this lip conditioner! I put this on every night before bed & throughout the day in winter when the cold drys my lips out. I paid 90p for this in Tesco when it was on offer. YES 90p! I stocked up & bought about 4. It's smooth & silky on my lips & not at all sticky. & each pot lasts ages... Love them.

I bought this because it reminded me of living in Hawaii as a child. I loved it then but now I think otherwise. It seems unsanitary to stick my fingers in a pot. I do love the smell and texture. I swear if I wear it overnight I wake up feeling very ill and I have the poops. I finished up the rest of the product as a dab on type of perfume behind my ears because I love the smell so much.

The best lip balm ever! Could hardly survive without it. It's the only thing that heals my dry, cracked lips. And for that price.. But other Blistex lip balms are not as effective, this one really helps.
