I joined this website specifically to sing the praises of this product! This lip balm is truly a miracle for me!!!I suffered from eczema and dry lips that constantly itches, peels and burns! I may have one good day in a long while, where my lips are well-behave, but as soon as I dared put on any lipstick or get foundation near my lips, I would pay penance with a major breakout. Numerous research into why I was suffering this badly, lead nowhere. I’ve tried everything from La Mer to plain old Blistex, to no avail. If you can name a brand or product, I can tell you that I’ve already tried it! My situation was so bad, I wouldn’t leave the house without some sort of a lip balm for fear of my lips throwing a tantrum.Then I discovered the hard to find Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm…my life changed. My lips are still recovering with scarring from previous breakout, but they are a 1000% better. IN fact, I now can wear lipsticks on a daily basis, with my lips never feeling dry. I have not had a breakout since I’ve started using this product. My lips are also looking healthier and (hope I am not imagining this) plumper! They have a healthy pinkish tint to them, the like of which I have not seen since I was a teenager!Because it contains cortisone, I wouldn’t recommend using this product all the time. I supplement throughout the day with either Carmex or Kiehl’s Lip balm (pot), as needed. But, I keep a stick in every single purses that I own. AS everyone else have mentioned, they are hard to find in store. I order mine on Amazon, and just buy a lot of it for one shipping.The product does have a strong scent, but this does not bother me at all. It feels just like a lip balm should feel in my opinion; it is not sticky or slick, and it sinks it well. Moisturizing and feels so good!Thank you Dr. Dan!

This is truly a miracle product for me! I have eczema and peeling above and directly on my lips. It's extremely miserable and my lips constantly burn or swell and the only thing I've found to work on them is Cortibalm! I have about 4 tubes of this stuff because it's the only lip balm I can use. Unfortunately, I still have problems with eczema on my lips but this product really takes away the itch and I don't have as many issues as long as I use this diligently. Besides being great for eczema, this product is a great general lip balm as well. The only Con I have is that it can be hard to get in stores so you have to order it online for the most part. However, if you go to a store and you can't find this product, most pharmacies will order the product for you if you tell them the product name or you can go online to the Dr. Dan's Corti balm website and print out a form to give to a pharmacist so they can order it for you. I've done it before and it comes in a couple days and you don't have to pay for shipping :)

I have always had chapped lips, and most any lip balm would do as far as giving me some relief. I moved from FL to CO a couple years ago and that first winter was so harsh on my lips. NOTHING helped relieve how dry, chapped, cracked, irritated and itchy my lips were. I tried what seemed like every lip balm/treatment available, including lanolin, bag balm and plain old vaseline to no avail. I came across reviews for Dr. Dan's and ordered it immediately at my local Walgreen's. It costs about $4 a tube. It came in the very next day and I got quick relief. It doesn't have the most pleasant smell, but it fades quickly. It does contain hydrocortisone, so I only use this until my lips are better and then I can easily go back to using another moisturizing lip balm to maintain my lips. If my lips start getting really dry, I reach for this and use it a few days in a row and all is well again. I always keep a few of these on hand and use them on my kids' lips too when they get uber dry. Would repurchase and highly recommend.

So glad I finally decided to try this. I work in a pharmacy and a lot of our patients on accutane would order this lip balm to help with their severely dry lips. Recently my lips have gotten really, really dry and chapped. I needed to constantly put something on them or they would be peeling and cracking within hours. I read that if both your top and bottom lips are constantly chapped it can be a sign of an allergy so I cut out products trying to determine what I was allergic to. It even got to the point where I was using strawberry Tom's of Maine toothpaste (tastes soooo gross) thinking it was something in my toothpaste. Nothing worked so I finally broke down and decided to give this stuff a try and I'm so glad I did. Almost immediately my lips felt better. I can apply it only 3 times a day (I used to apply hourly) and my lips stay soft. I can still feel the moisture hours later. One caveat is that it does taste kind of nasty if you get it in your mouth- but I won't take a lippie off because it is so amazing otherwise.

After reading these reviews and the even more laudatory reviews on Amazon, I ordered a 3-pack. I hate to ruin its near-perfect track record, and I really really wanted this to be my HG balm after trying tons and tons to no avail, but nope. The first few uses I thought it was great, but I guess since it's a steroid you can't use Cortibalm regularly.I can see how it works for those with problematic (peely, blistery, etc) lips, but mine were just very dry. After a few applications, when I used this balm my lips would just go dry within the hour.Hope it works better for you!

I'm not on accutane, but this is great for those like me with chronically dry lips, especially in winter. The cortisone in it is very soothing and helps to heal your lips when they are so dry that they are peeling and sore. I don't use this every day, though--it has no SPF. Only at night, when needed.
