I’d read a lot about it, and many people swear by it for keeping their lips soft and chap-free.
I bought it for RM29.90 and whilst it goes on very emollient, it didn’t make my lips feel any softer than normal. I then forgot about it until recently, when I fell ill and found my lips dry and peeling.
I picked up this tube of lip balm again to sooth my peeling lips and applied the balm liberally. To my utter chagrin, it didn’t help my lips one bit. They were still as dry and were still peeling. I went back to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, and my lips immediately felt softer and smoother and all the flaky skin fell off.
So, my conclusion is that this is pretty much just expensive petroleum jelly in a tube, but without the effectiveness of Vaseline. I’ll finish up this tube but I won’t re purchase.
Pros: Emollient, handy size
Cons: Expensive, doesn’t work well
