Disadvantages Lacks the 'tingle' effect
|Value for Money|
I suffer from dry and cracked lips, and the sudden blast of cold wintry weather we have been having lately has done little to ease my suffering. When I ran out of my beloved Blisteze cream when I was out and about a few days ago I headed into the nearest chemists which happened to be Boots to stock up.I was dismayed to find that they didn't sell Blisteze so opted for this - Cymex Cream - which promised big things..but would it live up to my fail safe blisteze?
This cream comes in a standard sized 15g metallic tube, and is encased in a larger cardboard packaging which is a very eye catching bright yellow.
The wording is in a contrasting green and red colouring so definitely stands out on the shelves besides similar products.
My experience of using this~
(*Please note I only suffer with dry cracked lips and luckily not cold sores so I can't comment on it's effectiveness in that particular area).
I applied a thinnish layer of the cream to my lips and I found it soaked in instantaneous, which is always a plus in my book. The cream itself is a bright white in colour, whilst the consistency is slightly runny - if compared to similar products. It glides on to the lip area quite smoothly and as mentioned soaks in straight away.Results?~
My lips were in quite a dire state when I first applied this cream but I have to say it did start working immediately. It lacks the tingling effect for sure, but it does live up to all it's claims that it soothes and relieves dry lips and at the end of the day that's what I bought it for.
I do prefer Blisteze as you may have gathered by now, but I will use this again in the future if Blisteze is not available as it promises and delivers. It's widely available from pharmacists and costs around the £2 mark depending on where you shop.
