Chapstick isn't healing my chapped lips - not did it prevent them! What's best please? I've found Blistex good in the past but maybe there's something better out there?

Thanks

Eight Hour Cream...

I am about to sneak in to the sleeping 3 year old with my index finger coated in the stuff and smother her chapped, picked lips. If I get away with it they will be virtually healed by morning.

I've converted from Vaseline to Carmex and it's the best I've found. They do a really nice tinted gloss one which is brill for maintaining, but if your lips are already dry or sore get the little yellow pot, I put it on before bed and by morning they are restored. Tis like magic!

Blisteeze for me.

Try putting Vaseline on overnight. I found that works well for all my family.

Carmex every time!

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream stick, definitely

I always lurk on these threads in the hope of finding somethign really great, but am always disappointed. I have really dry lips - so dry that I can never wear lipstick.

Blistex is good. Flexitol lipbalm slightly better, imo.

Lanolin is not bad but a bit bulky to carry around.

Vaseline does nothing for me.

Honey based ones are ok - Burts Bees have a nice tinted lipbalm.

Can you tell I have tried them all?

Another vote for 8 hour cream

I love NUXE BAUME LEVRES REVE DE MIEL (sorry for caps, copy pasted it)

I keep vanilla Carmex in my bag too.

Vaseline overnight, or Blisteze during day if really sore.

Carmex by far! I have a squeezy tube for prevention but if they're really dry the little yellow pot does the trick every time and I always have very dry lips. IMO Vaseline is rubbish, it's ok whilst you use it but my lips are always dryer afterward than they were in the first place.

Carmex or 8 hr cream

Lypsyl, the original and best, although I cant seem to buy it in the shops these days, have to buy it online.

La Roche Posay Ceralip is really good

La Roche Posay Ceralip is really good

Might not work for you, but olive oil is surprisingly good. Just try not to lick it off! That's the main killer with anything.

The best one I've found is an aloe Vera one but I also rate blistex.

LadyFlumpalot Wed 18-Dec-13 23:50:51

Lanisoh or whatever it's called, the stuff for nipples.

Blisteze/Blistex whichever one it is these days. Tried many others but nothing beats it IMO.

I like Norwegian Formula.

Palmers cocoa butter lip balm

Blistex made mine sting, carmex dried them out more in the long run as does Vaseline.
Original Nivea is good for me too

Aquelven Thu 19-Dec-13 04:02:17

Palmers, the E45 stick or best of all the tin of L'Occitane solid Shea butter.

Eve Lom's kiss mix! It works wonders for dry lips.

Carmex! Especially the cherry flavour! grin
