    This lip balm is the best I have ever used. It used to be readily available in my area, but I am now having difficulty finding it in the store. I love the porduct so much that I buy every tube when I do find it on the shelf.

    The protection is fabulous yet it doesnt have a bad taste like so many lip protectants do. It is smooth, soothing, and healing when need be. I also appreciate the fact that Herbal Answer does not cause the skin around my lips to break out. Other lip balms tend to migrate off my lips and onto my face causing blackheads or breakouts.

    I highly recommend this product because it is economical, smells and tastes great, and above all, IT WORKS!!

    I can no longer find Blistex Gentle Sense, which was perfect for me as it had no perfumes, flavors, anything. Just plain, effective lip balm. I tried the Herbal Answer and I can't use it. It REALLY stings my lips, and they aren't even chapped!

      Comments about Blistex Herbal Answer Lip Protectant, SPF 15, .15 oz:

      Just like everyone has said, this is the best lip balm ever. I tried many others when it became unavailable and none have worked for me. I don't like all those minty, waxy balms. Even the other Blistex choices didn't work out. I was very happy to find it on Drugstore.com and stocked up. I hope it will always be available.

          I have tried many different lip balm products over the years but always return to using Herbal Answer. It is long lasting, effective and has minimal scent. This product has beed difficult to find and Drugstore.com is one of the few that carries it. Please do not discontinue!

            Searched until I found it again. My local stores could not get it anymore. I now buy it 10 at a time. No wax tastes or greasy feel, but most importantly a great smell without medication/menthol to dry your lips out. Great for everyday users.

            Easy to apply, smells really good. However, didn't last at all on my lips (maybe 1 hour?), which are not chapped, just dry. I much prefer Blistex' "Complete Moisture" lipbalm - really adds moisture and keeps my lips hydrated even through the night.

              I discovered this lip balm several years ago on Drugstore.com. I love it! It's the best lip balm I've tried, and I've tried a lot. Other lip balms I have to reapply constantly--not so with this one. I can put some on and my lips feel good for a couple hours. The smell is good--natural and not perfumy. I wish I could find this in stores, but at least drugstore.com still carries it.

                  The thing that stands out the most about this product is the scent. I use it daily, but need to reapply. i prefer nivea lipbalms over this however

                  pros: smell, colorful packaging, can treat dry lips and prevent dry lips, very affordable, not too greasy on lips

                  cons: doesn't completely heal dry lips, build-up on top of cap
