I have been using this product for at least 4 years and i must say that its performance has definately exceeded all other lip balms and lip moisturisers i have also purchased. It comes in different types, but my two top recommendations would have to be the rose tinted tin which gives your lips a light red tint (red/pink tin), although be careful when applying to not rub it into the skin around your lips as it sometimes stains a bit, and the cocoa butter tin which smells and tastes very good (light brown tin). The product is very cheap, around 99p, and is available in most pharmacists and beauty stores. The product is small enough to fit into your pocket, handbag, make-up bag etc, but big enough to contain all the lip therapy you need for numerous months. I have quite big lips which easily get dry often, this product is easy to apply as it is soft so is the easiest way to relieve the tight, dry sensation. The only 2 problems i have had with the product is that the petroleum softens greatly when it is kept in your pocket for a period of time, and when there is not much left in the tin and you have long nails the petroleum often gets under your nails, which isn't the nicest experience. An added bonus with this product is that it can be used on small patches of dry skin aswel, it quickly hydrates and moisturises the area and gets rid of any flaking. I use Vaseline on my nose as it gets dry after showering, i have to say that vaseline is better than my moisturiser for that purpose. Vaseline is a very simple product, and doesnt contain lots of perfumes or colours so is perfect even for senstive skin. It is the most reliable lip therapy i have purchased.
