Strongest points
Really effective at reconditioning lips and exoliating dead skin from them, will stop cold sores forming if applied at prickling stage, will even heal split lips in a matter of days. Prevents red nose if applied around the nostrils during a cold.
Weakest points
Mint oil may make eyes water if inhaled. Great caution required when squeezing the tube, it is slow to react but keeps on going... Similarly, the tube should be kept somewhere that it won't be squeezed accidentally or it may empty itself on next opening. Metal tube may split if not kept carefully when part empty.
Summary
This is an amazing product which will really deal with any chapping or dead skin build up on the lips. I have found no other lip balm to penetrate the lips to the same degree, however I tend to only use it when I need it.

This was the only product which healed my lips after a whole winter with a split lip when I was younger, and solved it within a matter of days. I apply to my nose during a cold and find it prevents soreness and redness, it is great when applied overnight and even helps with breathing due to the mint oil.

It is a product which will prevent cold sores if applied when you feel the tickling sensation before they appear.

This is a product I always have at home, sometimes I may even have two tubes on the go.

Strongest points
Amazing results on chapped lips. You all need a little to get great effects. Not greasy like lip balms.
Weakest points
Silly metal tub that squiggles out far too much product and it gets all round the lid and neck of the tube - messy
Summary
Packaging could be more user friendly, but the product is the best I have found for chapped lips.
