Alright, when it comes to dollar stores, many items are just extremely inefficient and you'll get mediocre results at best. Dollar Tree is a place with a lot of good deals, yet they still have a lot of products which leave you unsatisified - such as the Chap-Ice Medicated Balm.
Its marketed as something for cold sores, fever blisters and chapped lips. When you apply it on your lips, your lips are sealed and protected and the discomfort you felt is gone, however it doesn't permanently fix the problem even with repeated use. If you put it on at night for instance, when you wake up, your lips still hurt. All it does it give you relief while its on your lips, nothing more.
So $1 is a nice cheap deal but this doesn't do a good enough job so you might as well go for the other more known or expensive brands or even something like vaseline to sooth chapped lips because this product will only tease you and leave you with blistered lips for a long time!
