I used to just use vaseline on my lips before bed but would often wake up to all the vaseline fully absorbed into my lips and gone. I didn't want to believe the hype on this but thought I'd give it a go and it's incredible. There's a lot in the pot and it's thick and hydrating when applied to the lips (can barely talk after putting it on though haha). In the morning it still keeps that occlusive layer locking in all the moisture and I just wipe away the excess with a muslin cloth when cleansing my face in the morning. I don't use it every night but it's perfect to prep my lips for a special day.
