This is my first review and I hope you all like it. I pondered a lot about what product should I choose, and I thought this would be helpful to all ladies out there who have dry lips.
I never had extra dry lips but since the time I have started taking treatment for Acnes, my lips had become coarse. I could not use any lip product however moisturizing it may be. I discussed this problem with my dermat and she suggested me to use Blistex lipbalm. Since all the medicines prescribed by her costed a bomb, I thought this might not be less than 500 INR. But I was pleasantly surprised that I was of 95 INR only. My Doc had told me that it can heal any kind of dry lips, and is the best lip balm she had known. I had to trust her because anyways my lips were pleading for help! I had to give it a try.
Believe me; it’s too good to be true. I am a hoarder of lipbalms and have them from every brand possible but since the time I have started using this lipbalm I have not touched any other from my kitty. Don’t get misguided by its humble price, it can beat any lipbalm. Let me give you all the details.

The medical store guy did not ask me what flavor I wanted and I never thought a medicated lipbalm would come in flavors. But I just noticed(while writing the review) that the flavor I have got is Regular. That does not matter to me anyways because I am so happy with this, flavor or no flavor.
