Winter is the worst time for your lips. Mine are pretty much in bits all year long but the minute we hit November they just peel constantly.
Carmex has been an essential product for me for about three years now. I have gone through 2 or three of them and I am halfway through my current tub! I think the American version of this calls it a cold-sore cream. I think they are the same thing to be honest.
I tend to use this at night more so than during the day. It's quite a glossy lipbalm and it is so noticeable when you have it on even if you use it sparingly. If you like the glossy look then it's perfect for use throughout the day! It smells kind of like toffee but it's not really noticeable when you have it on so don't worry if that's not your kind of scent. You can actually get them in different scents like mint and cherry which are equally as nice. Now one thing I think is a bit cheeky is the tub contains 7.5g while the tube contains 10g but they are both the same price! How annoying is that?!
