All time favorite chap stick. I have about four right now. One home, one in my bag, one at work, and one in my car. I'm never without it! My boyfriend jokes that it's my after dinner mint because when I'm done eating I reapply lol

Its just okay. I had really chapped lips as i had misplaced my go-to aquaphor and for a few days was going with very little or no balm so my lips dried out. I had redness and roughness on my upper lip as well. I tried the medex for a couple days and was not impressed. it just didn't seem to moisturize, my lips still felt hard with dry skin, and my upper lip was still rough with redness...Maybe I had to go longer than two days using it? But I feel especially since its medicated it should have worked overnight.
I also don't like that medicated smell - I should have known better but it was a cheap emergency buy..it's good in a pinch but as a treatment for really dry lips it didn't work out so well for me. I got it because the reviews were really good but maybe its better at prevention rather than initial healing? I bought the Blistex Moisture Melt the next day and it softened and took away the roughness on my upper lip within the first day of use! Get the moisture melt instead - it works better and doesn't have a bad smell + it's more sanitary application.

I've repurchased this stuff over 10 times and it's my HG. This is the only thing that truly works for me and easily trumps my EOS. It softens and soothes my lips from the harsh Canadian winters. Reasonable price too!

This stuff makes my lips really soft. It works better at softening than sephoras fresh sugar lip treatment. I don't know if you should be using this if you don't have chapped lips because it has medicine in it. However, I don't get chapped lips in the first place... probably because I use this. The smell is very medicinal, but it's very effective.

It's moisturizing but only when my lips are already dry and cracked. Because of the menthol, and while the cooling sensation is nice on my lips, it dries your lips out and causes it to flake at times. This is not something to use everyday (as I have discovered). If your lips are already smooth, don't use this because it will cause your lips to flake. If you have cold sores, or your lips are already flaking or inflamed, it is a definite choice to give yourself some relief. When it says medicated, it's not joking. Not an everyday lipbalm.

If I ran out or lost this product would I buy it again? Well, if you look at my closet I have over 50 of these, so yeah, pretty much.. I always loose and break them and in my country they don't sell this stuff.. But this little guy is like family, I have used it since I was like 9 or less, It has even a name, Mr. Blue... Mr. Blue is my savior, best lip treatment ever, and I have used a loooooooot of different products, but this is the first on my list, my second one would be Carmex Lip Balm but thats another story..

This is the best lip balm, ever! It tingles and soothes and feels so nice on the lips. I never buy any other type of lipgloss anymore. It's really great to mix with lipstick and lip crayons, too!

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. "WOW" is all I can say! This stuff is a miracle! I use this during the day and apply the Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment at night and in only 24 hours I've seen a dramatic difference. The menthol provided instant relief to the horrific burning sensation I was experiencing. I was constantly reapplying other lip treatments (that did nothing to help me) but with the blistex 1 application last for quite a while before you need to reapply. Not only does it work but it's super cheap too and comes in packages of 2 (in a stick form) so you are never without at work, home, purse etc. It does have a bit of a medicinal smell/taste but it does not bother me at all. THANK YOU BLISTEX...I'm a lifelong customer! I always use MA to research beauty products but I've never wirtten a review until now because I feel that strongly about the relief this provided me and it's effectiveness. If only it contained sunscreen :(

Being a die-hard skier, this is the only product I will ever use. With out this, I had the worst chapped lips ever, and it was that cracking, rubbery, unbearable feeling chapped lips. I discovered this when I forgot my chap stick at home, and bought some of this in the lodge. Best decision I have ever made. It instantly cools and heels my lips in minutes, and protects them like a boss. I put this to the ultimate test this winter, when I had a race on a 5 degree night with a -20 degree windchill, and my lips finished the night in better condition than they went in. Now I've discovered this, my bag of lip balms is useless to me, because nothing can compare to this. Whether you have wintery chapped lips, or just want incredibly soft, plump lips, this stuff is for you. Once you try this, you will NEVER go back.

I am starting to get quite discouraged as I have been trying out a lot of different products for my constantly dry lips. This product is one of the more popular and highly raved and it unfortunately does not work for me. I got it in stick form and I find that it has 0 moisturization and the product is so hard that I have to rub it really hard on my lips. Thus I despise having to use to this product. Tried it once and never picked it up again.
