I’ve thrown out all other lip balms that I have and just kept this one. I’m buying another for my 7 year old daughter. Her lips get really dry and living in Illinois we get really bad and dry winters. The chunky tube is perfect for her little hands and she finds that it’s easier to apply than a regular small tube of chapstick.
For myself, I’ve been using it a lot since the moment I got it. I would apply a really thick layer on my lips especially at night. I don’t mind going out of the perimeter of my lip line for extra moisture around my lip area.
I don’t have any problem with the tube. When I do apply it, I keep my pointer finger inside the tube to keep the balm “up” so it won’t slide down while I apply it on my lips. I love the packaging and the fact that it doesn’t have any plastic.
