This product has ended years of lip product experimentation. No matter what I used, my lips would end up chapped & peeling as soon as whatever I was trying wore off. This balm seems to eventually sink into my lips, leaving them soft & smooth. It\’s a bit pricey for a stick, but less expensive than obsessively buying brand after brand of \”cheap\” products, searching for \”the one\”. Smells great too! I\’m also using Baum de la Mer at night (talk about pricey, but worth it!), & the combo has my lips in the best shape of my life. They even stay soft for 2-3 days if I mess up my routine!
