Great lip balm, I gave one to my brother as well it's a simple basic lip balm that is a lot better than chapstick.
I ordered this balm because I am on accutane and thought I could use something better for my lips. I have found that this does not provide anything more than the other stuff I have been using (a combination of other products from Wal Mart and Sephora). Furthermore, I read reviews stating that this balm should not be used more than once a day or it actually does more harm than good. I will not re-purchase.
The only lip balm I've used for years. Helps with inflammation. Love it!
I first bought this product 7 years ago when my daughter was in kindergarten. She developed dry, cracked skin on the corners of her lips that wouldn't heal. I tried every OTC lip balm I could find, but nothing helped. After a few trips to my family physician we were referred to Dr. Schlessinger. He diagnosed my daughter with eczema and recommended Dr. Dan's CortiBalm. It has worked wonders for her. Since then I have given it to my mom, sister-in-law, niece, and anyone else with dry lips. It's a wonderful product and I highly recommend it.
My dermatologist recommends hydrocortisone in lip balm for chronic dry lips. This is a well priced, nice option.
I initially tried this lip balm because of the good reviews. I have come to realize that the majority of the positive reviews must be because people think that there are no other options. After I first used it and found that it was greasy and messy, I looked at the ingredients and realized why. It is mostly made of petrolatum and mineral oil. I then tried to figure out why it smelled so strange - not necessarily a terrible smell, just strange. The only other ingredient is beeswax, so I cant figure out why it smells the way it does. Despite the fact that the packaging says "the only lip balm with 1% hydrocortisone," I decided to do a quick Google search anyway. It turns out that there are actually 2 other lip balms that I could find with 1% hydrocortisone, so I dont know what is with their packaging. One of the products is called Lipster Medicated lip balm and the other is FixMySkin healing lip balm. I have now tried both of these products and they both smell really good and arent greasy like Cortibalm. Lipster is the one I prefer because of the ingredients and price. I also get better results from it. I just thought I would let everyone know just in case there are others that feel like me and think that Cortibalm is the only solution.
I do not want waxy. I do not want a product with a taste. I do not want super shine. This product is it! Only takes a few swipes and my chapped lips are history. It may seem a little pricey - but worth every penny.
Lips have major damage due sun here in AZ. Products works great and has helped repair some of the damage.
I'm on Accutane and this lip balm was recommended by my dermatologist. It is a godsend!! My lips are not flaky and are are so much more hydrated compared to other lip balms/chapsticks. If you have severely chapped/dry lips or are on Accutane, I HIGHLY recommend this. It stops needless suffering.
This product does well as an overnight protectant, but during the day it wears off too soon. It also has an "ash tray"-like aroma to it that isn't pleasant during the day, tolerable at night as you are sleeping.
