It's my new go-to lip balm "I've been using Gosling's Original ChopSaver for the past few months and it's my new go-to lip balm. Not only have I been using this product myself, I've also been recommending it to all of my isotretinoin patients. I know that this product was specifically developed for musicians, but it's perfect for my patients that suffer from very dry and chapped lips. I love that there is a version with SPF as well, as isotretinoin makes the skin more sensitive to the sun. Many people forget that they need to protect their lips, in addition to the rest of their body, so this lip balm is perfect for that." Dermatologist Dr. Alan Parks via founder of DermWarehouse

ChopSaver not only soothes the aching embouchure, but aids in the healing process. "ChopSaver not only soothes the aching embouchure, but aids in the healing process. As a tubist, so much of the face is engaged while playing that ChopSaver is a necessary product, especially after a long practice session. I have been using ChopSaver for over two years, and won't go back to any other product, as nothing on the market compares. You have to try it, to believe it!" Steven Darling, Professor of Tuba and Euphonium - Wright State University

How I Use ChopSaver "I have developed the use of ChopSaver into my daily routine over the course of about 7 years. Coming from the Dallas area and having worked in Florida for two years, I love the fact that the product line includes an SPF-included option, which can make a big difference. My year in Boston, with its brutal winter, also left me reaching for plenty of ChopSaver for a few months!

I like to use ChopSaver in some very specific ways, especially on the audition trail. If I know I’m playing a round the next day, I always apply it somewhat copiously at night right before I go to bed, accompanied by a lot of water. The next morning, my chops always feel fantastic! ChopSaver has become a bit of a safety blanket to me; I always rest easier knowing I won’t have to worry about dry or shriveled chops on the day it counts.

I also like to work ChopSaver into my pre-service routine here in the orchestra. I like to put it on about 20 minutes before I head out the door. I wipe it off right as I begin my warm-up at the hall, and my chops generally feel like they’ve gotten back to my preferred, comfortable base level. And I always keep a couple tubes in my locker at the hall!"

Facebook and Instagram comments "So I didn't believe that this would help me when I first heard about it. My friend gave me a sample and I was hooked. I use this every rehearsal now and my chops don't get tired after 3 hours of playing.

Just bought some earlier this week. BEST CHAPSTICK I'VE EVER USED! It's actually hydrating my lips and not leaving them greasy. I told all my band friends to get some. :) great product! 10 out of 10 will buy again

I have this and it's literally the best thing. I bought it for everyone in my clarinet section and everyone loves it. It's cheap and it actually works. Definitely will buy throughout my college band years.

For all the people wondering if it will mess up your reed... it doesn't. I have played with this on a lot, and it has never caused issues. It is a nice product!

I got some and it works so well! I tried it on horn and mellophone and I had a very long lasting lip endurance.

My trumpet section and I love this stuff. Great product that works fast and helps get through hours of playing.

I use this and I'm a clarinet player it even helps us to play better!

This stuff is seriously worth it, my trombone has never sounded better! And, I could still feel my lips!"

Relief from a Rare Skin Condition "My daughter Nisha was born with a rare skin condition. Her skin is extremely thin, prone to tearing, and is unceasingly itchy and dry. She has experimented with both prescription and over the counter lotions and creams sold in pharmacies and recommended by her dermatologist to no avail, some of which were quite costly. In a quick effort to bring some relief, she pulled out her ChopSaver and within the hour, the swelling went down, and the itch abated. Older scabs have faded, and the itch has not returned with regular application. We are truly thankful for such an amazing product!" Brooke Tague

Relief for a Cancer Patient "I have just finished radiation and chemo therapy for tongue cancer and have suffered horrendous dry lips and blisters. My lips are actually 90% better. It allowed me relief to sleep through the night. The petroleum based chap sticks and those with menthol and other concoctions just burned and made it worse. I can finally eat this morning. Thanks so much Dan Gosling for inventing this." S. Lewis via Amazon.com
