I have been using this for many years and it is the only product that will heal my chapped lips. I frequently get dry chapped lips in the winter and also any time it is especially windy. I usually apply the ointment at bedtime, and by morning I find a noticeable improvement to my lips! Although the camphor and menthol are soothing, I truly believe it is the allantoin in the product which works so well. On the drugstore.com site's ingredient list for the product, it continues to say that allantoin is the main active ingredient, however, when you purchase the product now, the packaging now has demoted allantoin to the "inactive" status. I'm sure this is just a regulatory requirement. I have tried numerous other similar-type products in the past, with similar ingredients but minus the allantoin, and they just didn't work. The allantoin, as you can gather, is key for me. As long as the product coninues to include it in its ingredient list, I'll continue to purchase it. It's not the best smelling or tasting, but it WORKS, which is all that counts.

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 use this every night before bed and wake with my lips well moisturized. If I feel the hint of a cold sore/fever blister I apply immediately and constantly, the blister/sore never has a chance to progress. The smell is pleasant but the taste is not so great. I can live with that.

        This is one product I'm never with out. I have tubes on my bedside table, in every purse I own, in the car, everywhere I go. Whenever we have chapped, dry lips I'm giving out Blistex ointment. My son doesn't like the feel or smell, but it works so well he asks me to put it on for him after he falls asleep. The next morning his lips are healed and soft again. It has never let me down.

          This product is awesome. Not only does it numb the pain, it really helps healing as well. Yesterday morning I woke up with a deep, bleeding crack in my lips. Last night I put Blistex on, and this morning there was significant healing (I had been using a lip balm before with not much effect). Wow what a difference. From now on I will never spend a winter without this.

                I have tried many lip ointments, even the same brand as this one. It takes so little to put it on. I use it mainly at night and a different one during the day. It is very dry where I live and I love this one since my daughter introduced me to it. I was really getting tired of trying so many different ones and was glad to find this one. A tube lasts a very long time.

                A few years ago my lips were cracking in the corners and bleeding. I went to the doctor and he gave me some medicine which did not work. I came accross Blistex in the store and decided to try it. It worked wonderfully and I have used it daily ever since. It is hard too find sometimes in stores and that is why I ordered it on-line.

                  I've found that if I get a burn and put this on right after icing the burned area that...NO BURN seems to develop?!?
                  Apply as soon as possible, and reapply often during the next 24 hours and besides soothing away any burn pain, it's as if you never got burned.

                  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.
