I like the Menturm (Omi Brotherhood) medicated chapsticks all year, and have seen several Moiscube versions for a while now. With a packaging change and a decent price, I decided to try the one above - Menthol with rice bran oil and camellia oil. The price I paid was 185 yen with tax included, but I usually see them for almost 400 yen each. Considering the regular medicated chapstick I use is under 200 yen for a two pack, it's on the fancy side for me.
This product boasts 'high moisture veil' and I thought it would be appropriate during the dryer season.
Metholatum brand - basically the same product as the Meturm version - above and moiscube below.
As the name of the product implies, Moiscube is a cube shaped chapstick. At first it felt smaller or like it contained less product.
Comparing the two, they're both 4 grams of product each.
I haven't used the Moiscube for that long yet, but so far I don't feel like it's any different. I don't think I'd recommend paying more for it because of the fancy shape. It makes sense because this shape will take up less space during shipping - like cube watermelons.
Another strange thing - the packaging is a resealable pouch like what some snacks come in. Why would you want to keep your chapstick in a sealed pouch and have to take it out every time you use it?
(As usual) I'll stick with the cheaper and less glamorous one.
That pick would make me happy. My son steals my chapstick and will dunk it in gross things. Not that I'll pay more but I'm keeping my next pack of resealable sweets bag to store my chapstick hahahaha
@edthethe Hah - but if he can get into the sweets bags, it would still be a problem. Maybe find a resealable bag that isn't something he knows he likes, hehe.
