Lip balm review - Cymex cream

 Over the last few days my lips have been so so dry.  Hard to say what is causing it, could be just the weather, but could be that I am not drinking enough water either - I am trying to tackle that one but bleugh I hate plain water.
Anyhoo whatever it is my lips have never looked worse. 
I think they look like the little girl in The Exorcist.  (I was going to post a picture of her here, but considering I go out of my way to avoid horror films I don't really want a scary pic on my blog!)
I've been using a combination of Blistex and Chapstick over the last few days and while they have been good i.e. my lips aren't getting any worse, they aren't getting any better either...
So today I spoke with the pharmacist who recommended me Cymex.  It cost €7.30 which is twice the price of the Blistex but so worth it.  It's really creamy and moisturising - and Long Lasting - applied once, you can still feel it an hour later.
Blistex good.
*Cymex better.
*And Cymex sounds like it's made by Cyberdyne Systems which is very cool :-D  I love Terminator films :-)
