I used this and never had to use lanolin when breastfeeding. I also used it frequently as a lip balm, and it was pretty good at that, but not the greatest. The container seems really small for the price, but I used it multiple times a day for about 5 months and only half the container is gone. I also get dry skin on my hands and this helped to alleviate that when I was washing so many dishes with a new baby.
There are sometimes little beads of wax or something, but they melt very easily into your finger when you touch them or them onto your body. I wasn’t too worried about that, but I’ve seen other reviews that were.
It’s got a very light, sweet, chocolate smell that is lovely and not overpowering. (Coming from a person who hates overly scented products.)
