I read all of the other reviews and decided to give this lip balm a try. I just received my Iherb package from UPS and quickly opened it to find the lip balm. YUCK!!! It's like putting straight vitamin E oil on your lips (which would be cheaper) and has a nasty taste. You can't help but get it in your mouth because it is so oily. I DO NOT recommend this oil and wonder if the people that gave it a good/great rating have even ever tried it!
This is a very good lip balm, more waxy and thicker than a balm like Badger for example. Excellent for if you are going out in the cold and wind in the morning and want to protect your lips. However it seems less optimal for dry, parched lips. When my lips feel dry and sore, there is no sensation of the moisturiser going into your lips and providing immediate relief. Badger for example does this. However Badger needs to be reapplied about 5 times a day whereas I use this only once or twice a day and it is fair to say that since I have been using this, my lips have noticeably been in less need of 'relief' Also when on, it gives the appearance of a nice clear lip gloss.

As a general rule, Carslson Labs products are excellent. The lip care is no exception. It keeps my lips smooth, moist, and soft.

I really like this lip balm, maybe one of my favorites this far from all lip balms that I've tried. It's quite soft and melts nicely on your lips. I also use it on dry spots on my back.
