My 15 year old swears by this stuff so I buy it at Walgreen's for her. It's OK. Just OK. A little waxy. I can't handle mentholated lip products bu apparently others can. Inexpensive and easy to find.

I like Carmex better than Chapstick, it goes on smoother and feels less stiff and waxy. However, the strong menthol scent is just a bit too much .

This balm and the Aquaphor Lip Repair are pretty much the only two that prevent me from having dry, chapped lips which I'm very prone to. It has an spf of 15 which eliminates having to put sunscreen on my lips. The only thing I can't stand with this is the scent and taste...sort of tastes and smells like Vics Vaporub. The consistency is much softer than Chapstick or Burt's Bees and for that reason, it's not ideal for applying underneath most lipsticks as it makes them slide around too much. I prefer using this one at night before bed and use other lip balms that are harder in consistency underneath lip colors.
