I've been using this for the last 25 years or so and it is the only product I have found that can give me instant relief. Certainly it is good for chapped lips, but from time to time my lips get dry to the point that I need to keep licking them if I don't have my Blistex with me. Lately I have had a hard time finding it in stores and have resorted to other Blistex products like the waxy type that you rotate like a lipstick to make the product come out of the tube. Even though it is the same company, it doesn't do the job. I have also tried other brands lately with no satisfaction. Recently I started using plain old Vaseline (still nowhere near as good as Blistex). The other day my 22 year old asked me where the Blistex was and I told him I haven't been able to buy any in a store and thats when he managed to uncover a couple of tubes that were buried in his room. I put some on immediately and thought "ahh" this feels so good. Like I said, nothing compares to this. It's been a product that I've used daily for all these years and am glad to have found it is still available on this website. Thankyou!

I loved how this made my lips feel, but when I looked in the mirror my lips were white! You need to make sure it gets rubbed in well if you have dry, flaky lips like mine, because it seemed like the white settled into the dry skin. If you make sure to not just swipe it on without looking in the mirror, it is a great product.

    Comments about Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, .21 oz:

    I have been using this for years and I love it!!! I like that it is an Ointment. It melts right into my lips, and it has a Menthol smell and tingling feeling to it. At night I put this on, let it absorb and then I apply any of my favorite balms that are a bit more thicker to really lock in the moisture. Layering is a great idea to wake with baby soft lips!!! Will be buying this for as long as they make it - I have one in my purse and practically in every room of my home.

    Comments about Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, .21 oz:

    This product contains Phenol, a chemical scientifically PROVEN to keep lips smooth at aplication for about 10 minutes, but dries out lips rather than solve the problem. Blistex is only out for $$$$, they could care less about any ones severe dry lips. I have terribly dry lips, and this only made the problem worse. Do yourself a favor and avoid this at all costs.

      I have been using this as a lip moisturizer for over 25 years. It is a great base under lipstick or alone. As a makeup artist I always used it on all clients as well. I won't use anything else! Love it! Very effective.

          I have used this for years as a base for my lipstick. I apply my AM moisturizer then the Blistex lip ointment, then let both sink in before applying my makeup. It is colorless, lightweight, non-greasy and makes lips feel healthy. It has a slight medicinal smell, but it goes away quickly. This is one of the few products I will never stop using.

            I can always count on Blistex to repair my chapped or dry lips. I find it much more effective than more costly, cosmetic brands. It gives a slight sheen and moist, healthy appearance to the lips.

              I bought this lip balm because the weather was really starting to do a number on my lips. It only took 3 nightly applications to completely heal my lips. Now they're so soft and kissable. This is my go-to medicated lip balm for life.

                When I got this I needed to replace my other stuff that had expired on me. My lips were dry and chapped at the time but constant use of it for a week and my lips were back to normal. I use this stuff when my lips are getting dry and when I have a cold sore (which is rare). It works!

                Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment

                 – Give your lips some relief with soothing, healing and moisturizing Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment. The emollient base and active ingredients are clinically proven to increase the moisture levels of lip tissues, while helping to heal dry, chapped lips and protect cold sores and fever blisters as they heal. Formulated with allantoin (derived from the comfrey plant) and other soothing and healing ingredients, you can quickly reduce the soreness of lips cracked from the winter's winds or under the hot rays of the sun.

                Those Delicate Lips



                Unlike the skin over most of your body, the surface of your lips is not protected by an outer layer called the stratum corneum. Instead, the epidermis is exposed directly to the air. Lips also do not have oil or sweat glands and contain very little melanin, the natural pigment that helps protect skin tissues from the damaging rays of the sun. This is why lips can so easily become dry, rough and cracked, when exposed to the cold, dry air of winter or to the hot days outdoors. Dry lips can also be a side-effect of some medications. Even though many people moisturize their skin regularly, the lips are often neglected. Lips also need to be kept moist and protected. You can even use Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment to help keep areas affected by cold sores nourished and protected while they heal. The soothing formula helps to calm itching and discomfort to leave the lips comfortable.
