  • i have heard about them are they really that good?

  • The best:) I don't like all of their products, but the chapstick is great. I used to have to go to sporting good stores to get it, but now you can buy it at Target.

  • Also CARMEX (I think that's how you spell it) It is a mexican product and sold in just a little tiny yellow tin container. Not in a package. JAJA you live here in Cali you could find it and it works great.

  • yeah carmex can save the worse of dried lips for sure. But I use KISS MY FACE or anything organic for day to day use

  • I'm a fan of burt's bees. Carmex grosses me out, because you have to stick your finger in the jar, and most of the time you don't have time to wash them first.

    Regular mint burt's bees is the best, stay away from the lifeguard' choice though. It will turn your lips white.

  • I recently discovered Alba's Coconut Cream Lip balm found at Target. I have bought several kinds of chapstick lately because I can no longer find DCT (Daily Conditioning Treatment for lips) in the little peach colored tub. I also have and Avon chap stick that I really like. Both are creamy and don't make you dry out and have to reapply 30 minutes later. Unfortunatly, neither have SPF. DCT does, but I can't find it anymore. Sigh!

  • I love Burt's Beeswax....awesome stuff and I'm all for natural ingredients. I use the kind with the faint pinkish tint which makes my lips look naturally pink instead of pale.
