You know how some chapsticks seem really hydrating but when they rub off your mouth after a few hours, your lips are left even drier than before (like not just normal uncoated lips, but dry and almost flaky)? This is the only chapstick where this does NOT happen to me! I only buy this particular kind anymore -- it has to be Chapstick brand with the little blue water drop on the cap. Works like a charm. Buy a few packs and keep them in every purse, bag, diaper bag, etc. that you own!
