I live by the beach in Northwest Indiana. In the summer the heat and sun zap my lips and in the winter the bitter cold and wind do a number on them too. I used to have chapped lips year round. This product is great. Not super thick like the popular one in the yellow jar - but works just as well when used daily and NO MEDICAL SMELL OR FEEL. This smells and tastes wonderful, simple and mildly sweet. I love it and I am prone to SUPER chapped, even cracked lips. You will go through a lot, tube not that big and I apply at least 4x a day. But I love it, have been using it for over a year and have not had one crack!

I don't even know why Blistex would even bother to call this stuff "lip protectant"; it is horrible. It doesn't even help your lips when they are dry and chapped, just makes them glossy and shiny. Yeah, like ya need THAT when you are looking for lip balm, right? This stuff is more along the lines of a gloss and nowhere near lip balm. They should put it into another category; it gives people the wrong impression about this product. I ended up throwing my stick away. The only product that works for me and I love to death is the original Blistex lip ointment (the white creamy one in the tube.) That is the best that I have found so far! Leave this shiny gloss stuff on the shelves, it's not worth it.

    Comments about Blistex Silk & Shine Lip Protectant and Sunscreen, SPF 15, .13 oz:

    I've used this product in the past and am using it again now because I'm trying to learn the harmonica and it's wreaking havoc on my lips. It's working well, when I can manage to keep it on my lips--it's easy to just lick it off and Blistex made it taste good. That can't be an accident. LOL

    I wanted to address some issues in another review here that I found interesting:

    "I was not impressed with this product. I've It DOES feel like silk going on, very smooth, but the shine is nonexistent."

    The shine is nonexistent? There certainly is a shine. It's not a lip gloss shine, but it's definitely there.


    "Also, it only lasts a few minutes! I found myself having to reapply every few minutes because it was gone so quickly."

    See my point about it being easy to lick off and tasting good. I suspect this is the cause of this issue.

    "I don't like the "two-handed" use either. You have to take the cap off, roll it up (because it's kept in the container like lipstick) then apply, then reapply the cap. I like regular lip balms where you just take the cap on and apply."

    The lipstick-style tube does take getting use to for someone accustomed to regular lip balms, but even those usually take two hands to uncap/cap. As for take the cap OFF (not on) and apply, you can do that with this. It doesn't automatically roll itself down when you cap it and there is enough clearance in the cap to leave a couple of mm of balm exposed while capped. A non-issue, IMO.

            I use this every time I go out. Glides on smoothly leaving my lips moisturized and soft while protecting them from the harmful rays of the sun. One great little product in a tube that does it all.

                I was not impressed with this product. I've tried every kind of lip balm out there. It DOES feel like silk going on, very smooth, but the shine is nonexistent. Also, it only lasts a few minutes! I found myself having to reapply every few minutes because it was gone so quickly. I don't like the "two-handed" use either. You have to take the cap off, roll it up (because it's kept in the container like lipstick) then apply, then reapply the cap. I like regular lip balms where you just take the cap on and apply. If you're looking for more shine, then don't bother.

                  I always have two on hand - one at home and one in my purse. I thought I was the only one, but when I was in Panama, I met a girl from Canada and she pulled out her Silk & Shine. She loves it as much as me.

                    I have been using this product routinely since receiving samples two years ago. It's ideal as a lipstick foundation since it goes on light and holds moisture in. I usually have 3-4 on hand - work, purse, car - so I'm never without it.

                    I do a lot of talking during the day and this product keeps my lips from becoming raw and dry. It's great because it never looks like I've just put on lip balm, just always looks smooth and feels fresh. Like I said in the heading - it's a rich feeling product but you don't need to be rich to use it. Good stuff.
