Carmex Lip Balm – Review

This winter, I faced severe lip chapping problem. This was a first for me. I am oily completely. No such dryness faced anywhere except my hair which are curly and hence, very dry.
I tried Himalaya lip balm, Oriflame Vit E balm, Vaseline balm and petroleum jelly both, Maybelline lip balm (this I found quite good among all) but no respite. The surrounding area near lips  also started to crack. Lips were in such a bad state that watery substance used to come out from cracks. Corners of mouth were always cracked and swollen. I was unable to laugh or open my mouth fully. I tried desi formulas too like ghee, glycerine, malai and all that stuff recommended by adults. Nothing worked.
My very dear friend from US came and seeing my condition, she offered me this lip balm and said it would definitely work. I started using this and voila!! It worked 🙂. Most severe lip infection and Carmex lip balm worked on that. I adore this lip balm. Still using this regularly before lip makeup and at night time. It has mint and camphor and gives a tingling sensation when applied on lips. I absolutely love it. It works everytime for me.
I would also like to add that for the lip surrounding area infection, I visited a doctor and he prescribed Neosporin cream to me and that did the trick in 3-4 days. My lips were saved 🙂.
