Pros: Healing is fast, while natural analgaesics relieve the pain. Cracked lips are healed.
Cons: A strong odor of camphor and menthol!
Winter has arrived in Wisconsin - especially since we are expecting 4-7 inches of snow tonight. As I stocked up on food and snacks for the long weekend, I passed the Bert's Bee products stand at my local food store.
This grandma wants a product that heals!
I expect to be out with the kids while they go sledding on their favorite hill tomorrow and my lips are really chapped! I want fast relief and Bert's Bee products have a good reputation. While I don't have fever blisters or cold sores, my lips are close to cracking and sore. That is why I purchased the medicated lip balm, rather than one with a lovely fragrance.
SOOTHING - HEALING - RELIEVING
How does it do all that? With time-testing ingredients like Clove Oil, Camphor, and Menthol. These have been around since the time of the Romans and before. Camphor and Menthol are both local anesthetics that are absorbed through the skin. Clove Oil is a natural analgesics and antiseptic that is primarily used in dentistry. A natural home remedy for toothaches. By the way - do not use more than 3-4 times daily.
WOULD I USE THIS IF I WERE GOING OUT ON A DATE?
NO! I know what menthol and camphor smells like! Think of Vicks Vapor Rub, which uses some of these same ingredients. If you are planning a night of love making, this is not the product for you that night. Save it for a night when you are alone.
