The BEST!!!

This is my first ever product review, and it is LONG...

This is my first ever product review, and it is LONG...
About six months ago I ran out of the usual lip balm I used every night before going to bed. Thankfully, I found some Lypsyl (which I bought years ago and never used). I really didn't expect to see or feel anything different. I learned long ago not to expect much from the multitude of new hair, skin, lip & eye care products, as all of the hype for these products is often just a well executed advertising campaign aimed toward making people think they have found that infamous "fountain of youth" which we all desire as we age. Reviews help, but are often hard to go by since everyone has a different skin type, etc... However, we all have lips -- some are just older than others! ;-)
Anyway, when I applied Lypsyl before going to bed it went on much smoother than my usual balm. That was the only immediate difference. It was the next morning that really WOWED me ... my lips were no longer dry & chapped like the day before, they felt incredibly smooth, and the best part was that they looked great -- very full & plumped. What a fantastic, unexpected surprise!!
I have since used this every day & night. For the first time, in my 43 years, I don't have flaky, dry chapped lips this winter. Plus, the fine lines on my lips, which I never noticed until a few years ago, are almost nonexistent while wearing this product! The best part is waking up every day with smooth, plump, moisturized lips. I have no idea what it does, but wearing it overnight helps tremendously (maybe because it stays on for so long without the interruption of eating, drinking, etc.?) I have forgotten to apply it a few times before going to bed, and the difference is immediate!!
Another great benefit is that I sometimes use this in place of the shiny topcoat which comes with my long last lip stick/gloss, and it is the first regular balm that doesn't make it rub off right away (works almost as well as the top coat, but not nearly as shiny).
The only way my lips could be any more PERFECT would be finding a product to help bring back that nice natural pinkish color of young lips. About the closest I could find was when I recently discovered that wearing original Lypsyl over the new lip stains works very well to keep my lips feeling moisturized while adding a nice lip tint that stays on practically forever. This is a huge relief as the stains are awesome but can feel rather dry when used all alone.
Tip for the lip stains too: ... the colors are true and can be VERY dark & intense -- much different from lip gloss & lipstick as it penetrates deep into the lips rather than just sitting on top. I think that is how it keeps the color lasting nearly forever. Hold the sticks up to your lips until you find the color that looks perfect with your skin tone -- only buy if you really like one of the colors because it will look almost exactly the same as what you see there.
One last note -- the first Lypsyl I used was in a blue & white container which twisted up like chap stick. It was more like a Vaseline texture, and it didn't have any beeswax or the slight mint tingle. When it ran out I was so happy to find it still on the market, but a little disappointed to find that it was so different (the yellow container with the bee that pushes it up). Seeing the added ingredients, I thought my perfect new lips would be gone forever. Was I ever wrong!! Adding those few new ingredients really only made it that much better. It seems like it stays on even longer now, while still doing all the same great things for my lips!! :-)
I also bought the Lypsyl with eucalyptus here at Drugstore.com, and I like it too. It is almost exactly the same. However, it squeezes out of a tube (like original Blistex) with a slanted soft rubber tip, it has a slight medicine smell/feel, it isn't as smooth going on (feels thinner, maybe?) and it doesn't seem to last on my lips as long. Great if you need lip medication, otherwise stick with original Lypsyl -- and begin loving your lips forever more!! :-)

I'm always looking for an alternative to Dr. Hauschka's lip treatment because of its price. This one looked promising because of the inclusion of shea butter, and all the positive reviews. However, it bombed. While I appreciate the clever styling of the container (you push a little thingie to move the stick of balm up and down, instead of twisting -- cute!), it simply doesn't work. It goes on smoothly, but has an annoying minty feel similar to Jack Black's lip treatment. Don't care for it. And, it dries my lips. Really defeats the purpose of moisturizing. Another failed attempt to save money on Dr. H. Ah well!

        I love this lip balm, first I like that it is wider than most. Second, it just does a better job.
        I like the applicator and that it isn't waxy.

          This lip balm provided instant relief from my dry, chapped lips. For the past few weeks, my lips have been flaky and sore. I tried every chapstick, lipbalm, medication in my drawer and nothing was working. I bought this lip balm and my lips felt better instantly. The flakiness and peeling was gone. I will buy more so I can keep one in my purse, my nightstand, my coat pocket, so I always have one on hand!

            I love this lip balm. It's smooth without being greasy. I can't stand lip balm that's waxy feeling. It also has mint in it which refreshes my lips. I've used this lip balm for some time and it's my favorite.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I ordered 2 of these with other items and received my order prompty. The lip balm was missing in the box when I received order. I called and let them know about the shortage. They were very friendly and sent me the lip balms promptly without any hastle.

            I absolutely love this product. I used another product and it completely destroyed my lips, they were cracked, painful. I finally found something that keeps my lips soft and smooth and non addictive. If I don't have it on all the time, my lips still remain soft. Definitely recommend it. There is also a raspberry flavored one, just a hint of flavor, nice.

              My daughter has severe allergies paired with super-sensitive skin. Her lips stayed cracked year-round until I found this product. You name it - we've tried it. Lanolin is one of the many culprits for her and we have yet to figure out what the others are, but I'm thrilled to say that this has been a godsend!

              Comments about Lypsyl Lypmoisturizer Lip Balm, Original Mint, .1 oz:

              I have very dry lips all year round and have, over time, gone through just about every product out there. I've tried name brands and no-names, high-priced and budget. I have not been happy with any of them. Some were greasy, some tasted awful, some lasted about a minute and a half. I had begun to think that there was no product I'd be happy with.

              Then I tried Lypsyl and my search was over. I have thrown out all of the other stuff I'd tried and bought a bunch of these just to be sure I wouldn't run out. The Lypsyl goes on smoothly, has no greasy feel, and lasts far longer than the other products. It goes on thinly and I don't feel like I have any product on my lips. Because I don't have to slather it on, the tube lasts a long time.

              If that was all it did, I would be thrilled. But it seems to be even better than that, because my always-chapped lips are improving the longer I use the Lypsyl and I don't even use it as often as before.

              I don't usually write recommendations like this, but this product is just so good that I felt compelled to share.
