This is a wonderful, excellent product. Living in a dry country, mountains of Colorado, this is the answer for dry skin, or any issues with the skin due to dried out conditions. Protection while skiing, or just the daily use, this is the answer. Been using this product for couple of decades now, and it’s the only one that I come back to, due to the fact that it does work. It does come from the old country, where I was first introduced to it. So 20+ years of using it, and with many friends overseas swear by it, I would definitely recommend this to anyone to try it.
This is my wife's account, but the husbands review. I was skiing in Winter Park 2 years ago and realized I needed some lip balm before loading the chair at the base with my friends. I ran to the closest store in a rush and found Melem at the counter. I was a little taken back by the price, but I was at a ski resort and needed something fast, so ponied up for this unknown lip balm. The clerk at the counter said it was good. It was. I shared it with on of my ski buddies who also gave it a great Review. After getting home, my wife also tried it and sang its praises. This is truly good stuff. I think it's better than my old standbye aquaphor, and as a bonus it smells really nice. This stuff is money.
After searching, it became apparent that we weren't going to find any more of this stuff outside of Winter Park, so my wife found it here on Amazon and ordered a 6 pack which has lasted over a year.
One caution. I just returned from a ski trip carrying my melem in my jacket pocket as usual. This trip was at very high altitude, and was extremely sunny 4 of the six days we were there. My lips got completely fried/blistered. I didn't not think about the SPF with this product, stupidly. I quickly realized it has none(nor does aquaphor). Obviously not an indictment of Melem, just my own stupidity. This is a fantastic product, but if you need sun protection, use another product during exposure and apply Melem afterwards.
Seriously the best chapstick ever. I have crazy dry lips. No matter what I’ve tried, after two weeks of using it (at most) it stops working. That has completely stopped now that I am using this. Sure, you have to apply it throughout the day, it’s not going to last all day long, but it’s amazing. My lips are the healthiest they’ve ever been. I live in Colorado so the climate is very dry and can be very cold. If you’re trying to decide if it’s worth buying....yes, it absolutely is!
I love this lip balm. Unlike most lip balms which soothe only temporarily and require constant reapplication, Melem Lip Balm actually heals your lips and protects against further damage. It is a must for the winter and any outdoor activity (skiing, sledding, snow shoveling...), but I use it year round to keep my lips healthy and moisturized. It was alarming to order a pack of 6 at first, but I had already used the product before and knew it was worth the money. Instead of storing them while I use one at a time, I gave them to my family and friends. They absolutely rave about Melem Lip Balm now as well. For guys: it doesn't leave your lips shiny and it doesn't smell fruity or floral. I cannot say enough about Melem Lip Balm.
I too stumbled across this in Winter Park CO anf highly reccomend...although expensive per unit I use far less product to heal my lips because somehow, this heals my lips 3-5 times faster than Burts Bees or any other brand that I have tried.
I discovered this product while visiting my sister in Winter Park, CO. My friends and I had horribly chapped and cracking lips from the dryness and altitude of the mountains. All the locals suggested Melem!! I figured why not try it and I was glad I did, cured my dry lips and prevented it the rest of the trip. I now order it through Amazon because its hard to find back home. Very great product and a stick last me months!! Side note- I also used the tin version on my recent tattoo I got. It helped so much with the healing process and stopped the itching.
I stumbled across this lip balm in CO while snowtubing with my family. All of our lips were pretty chapped by the end of the day, and after using this our lips felt amazing. This chap stick makes my lips so soft, has NO waxy feeling and very little odor. My son had severely chapped lips including the skin around his mouth, and after using this for 2 days, his lips were completely healed. I would highly recommend this product, and it is definitely worth having to buy 6 at a time!
I was having issues with extremely dry lips during winter and random dry patches started to appear by my lips. I use this every night since I got it and my lips are doing great and are no longer dry/cracking.
We first found this stuff in Winter Park, Colorado and loved it. Couldn't buy it anywhere near where we live & we were very happy to find it available on Amazon. Also works great on babies chapped cheeks.
