    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.

      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.

        you put a thick layer on and leave it overnight, you chipped lips will become smooth and soft in the morning. it's minty in taste and smell, i would prefer no smell but it's so effective.

          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!

            Comments about Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment, .21 oz:

            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've been using this product daily for 35 years as a way to keep my lips soft and hydrated. If it didn't work, I wouldn't have used it for all this time! When your lips hurt from chapping or just general dryness, this makes them feel better instantly. Instantly! One reviewer said that when they used it, their lips turned white. The ointment is white so if you put too much on, your lips will be white for a few seconds but just rub it in a bit more or blot and use less next time. You don't need to use tons just a small amount. Recommend!

                  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.

                  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.
