Best available– but not as good as their prior version
The Natural Ice lipbalm was produced in a tube (like Carmex) in the early 1990s and was the best lip product I’ve ever used…it lasted forever, was cheap, and worked _really_ well. But they quit making it sometime around 1998 and replaced it with this stick version. The stick is just not as good; it costs more, doesn’t last as long (the package, not per application), and it’s more subject to melting in hot weather. Still, I’ve tried probably two dozen similar products and Natural Ice is the only one that really works for me– particularly in Minnesota winters, when it often hits -20F and is really windy.
I probably have ten sticks of Natural Ice around the house/car/work and always have one in my pocket. The only way to improve it (other than bringing back the old tube version) would be to sell it in multi-packs like Chapstick and Blistex do.
I put it to the test
I love this stuff. I have been in Cheyenne, Wyoming when it is -10F and 80 mph winds, and in Doha, Qatar when it has been 128F, Iraq where it is 110F and the wind feels like a hair dryer. This product has been on my lips through all of it. Natural Ice is the only one for me.
After using Natural Ice the others just don’t compare – it helps heal chapped lips quickly (take it from someone who never uses lipbalm until it is too late) and is more effective and less annoying than other brands like chapstick.
Simply the best!!!
This is the best lip balm I’ve ever used! Even when my lips are severely chapped from cold weather. Also great for brass players who need to keep their lips moist.
Simply the BEST Lip Balm Period
I’ve been using Mentholatum products since I was a child so I always remebered the name. Years later, as a teen and one of those who suffers from easily chapped lips, I purchased every brand and type lip balm there is and this is the best bar none! The other ‘famous’ brand, such as WaxSticks actually mad my lips worse for some reason, the more I used it, the worse it became. The only problem with this is availability, I’ve noticed I could find it at retails locations on the west but not in the east coast. Aside from that, its a great product. One of the few products I keep a stock of at al times. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!
I have used this product for years but it has become impossible to find locally so I went online. You have to buy in quantity but it’s worth it. I will continue to use it.
I was so excited to find this online, because the stores around me stopped carrying this brand. I’ve been using it for the past 7 years, and I highly recommend it. At first I just got it because it was cheap, but even now that I have to pay a little more to get it online I buy it because I think it’s a great product. I love the ice sensation from this chap-stick.
Simply Awesome Lip Balm
Just simply the best lip balm there is ever. I’m glad it came in a 12 pack because I will never have to buy again until next year. I hope they are still selling it then. I recommend this to anyone!
The one and only lip balm I’ll ever use!
Omg, I was taken back by surprise when I first applied this lip balm on my lips. I’m used to using name brands like Chapstick which you can find anywhere and people know the name because it’s that popular. Later, I transfer to Banana Boat’s lip balm because it had high ratings as well as SPF to protect my lips from the sun. Last year, I was shopping around the Beauty department on Amazon and notice this particular lip balm was being highly touted. I was running out of lip balm, so I decided to try this one out and see what the big deal is. It moisturizes, protects my lips from the sun, and seems like a decent price ($12.16 for a pack of 12 so that’s about $1.01 each). As you apply the lip balm onto your lips, you start getting an instant tingly/mint feeling wherever you applied the lip balm to. Lip balm is like toothbrush to me, their brand or how cheap they cost doesn’t matter to me as long as they work. However, this lip balm is really different. Instead of a chore to remember to put on lip balm, I find it enjoyable with this one. It’s a real nice feeling like the lap balm is working. I had really dry skin (so dry it hurts) on the sides of my mouth a few days ago and I immediately applied this balm and the skin on the sides of my mouth felt so much better. At the time that I bought these lip balm (back in December 2008), the Cherry flavor one had good ratings, but I went with the Original Flavor one, so I can’t provide feedback on the Cherry flavor. I recommend the Original Flavor one, almost minty flavoring. Because I bought a pack of 12, I ended up giving away some as presents. These make pretty considerate stuffers.
Best lip balm ever
I used to buy this lip balm for my kids because they used to eat the flavored kind. Then, we noticed that nobody was getting cold sores, something my stepdaughter used to get often. This is absolutely the best lip balm ever! It doesn’t melt in the dryer, if it’s accidentally washed and dried. But, the best thing about Mentholatum Lip Balm is that it really works, and it works well. Too bad it’s not made anymore. If I had known it was going to be taken off the market, I would have stocked up!
