The only (non-SPF, overnight) lip balms that work for me are ones with lanolin in it. This has two types, lanolin oil, which is a derivative, and lanolin itself. In terms of its efficacy, it's great.I used the Paula's Choice Lip & Body Treatment Balm (in the tin) before switching to this. The PC product has lanolin and has a long ingredients list that is more impressive than the relatively simple ingredients list of the DHC product. However, the PC product is quite cumbersome to use, since it's in a tin, and it's not exactly hygienic.The DHC lip cream is more viscous and 'buttery' than the PC product when applied. I don't like using this in the daytime because it's overly glossy (thanks to the olive oil), and there's no SPF, so I use this at night. It's not exactly cheap, though - it goes for an average of $10 per pop and you'll run through it relatively quickly because there's not much product in it... it'll add up over time.So is it worth it? If you want a lanolin-based lip balm in stick form and don't want to put plain old nipple cream on your lips, then sure. I'll be sticking to this one for that reason alone.On a separate note, it's weird when people give lip balms a bad review because their balms did nothing to help their 'parched and cracked' lips. You'd think they'd have some common sense and apply a hydrating layer on their lips first - perhaps a little hyaluronic acid - before then going over with a layer of lip balm. It's not the lip balm's fault that you don't understand how hydration works.

I've wanted to hop on the double cleansing train for a while now, and this has been a great first step. I usually need a lot more than just face wash to remove my winged eyeliner and waterproof mascara, but this has done a fantastic job of taking it off quickly and without rubbing my face off. A little on the pricey side, but if you're on the fence you can always shop during a sale.

I rubbed a sample of this on my neck and within a day broke out with a nasty, itchy red rash all over my neck. And that's why you should always patch-test products first, friends.

I tried a bottle of this as I was curious about the lactic acid. I think it did make my skin softer, but I didn't notice much in the way of evening out tone or brightening. It does have a strong odor and it does sting, especially around my hairline, which probably meant I wasn't as diligent in my use as I should be. Texture sinks in well and bottle keeps everything air-tight. I won't be running out to repurchase, but might give it another try in future, as it is reasonably priced for this type of product.
