I have very chapped lips year-round. Over the years I've tried sp many different chapsticks and never found *the one* until I bought this! My lips have never been healthier and softer. It feels great going on and stays on a pretty long time. I noticed a huge difference in the health of my lips within a single day. It's slightly shiny so I use it as a alternative to lip gloss when I want shiny lips. This chapstick has a very soft pleasant scent and no taste. My boyfriend never complains about kissing me when I wear it. I will continue using this as my main chapstick for as long as I can continue to find it. I highly recommend this to anyone who has really dry, cracked and/or bloody lips.
