I think this says it all: I have a tube in my handbag, my desk drawer at work and one on my nightstand. I use this on my lips every single day and I have for years. In my opinion there is no better lip ‘balm’ out there. In winter I also use it when my skin tends to get dry patches. It also works miracles on sunburn. The only drawback is the taste/smell. Not very pleasant. But you do get use to it quickly enough.
