Customer Question

For many years I have suffered with dry, burning lips. I've tried vasaline, various lip balms including Carmex, a balm containing 10% hydrocortisone, whatever I found available and it just gets worse. I just researched this on the internet and decided to order Breneton pills. I probably should have checked with you first but the testimonials were excellent. What think you? I also smoke which I'm sure is contributing to this ailment.
