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

Carmex

Sorry, can't seem to do the link thing!!

Camex do a lip balm. It comes in 3 or 4 subtle colours and gives your lips a bit of shine and colour. It has the same tingle and cooling effect of the pot, so I assume it is the same stuff. This is my everyday bit of glam!

If you're a fan of Carmex lip balm and know someone going to the States, ask them to stock up for you. They sell 3 for $1.99 in most drug stores. Of course you might be crossing the Pond yourself...

Palmers coco butter one is lush.

Carmex used to contain alcohol which is drying, it may have changed though.

Vaseline. Nothing works better than vaseline.

Coconut oil, rub into your lips.

Gently scrub with a damp flannel to get rid of flaky bits.

Reapply coconut oil, then your normal moisturiser over the top to seal the moisture in.

Then go to bed and wake up to lovely lips!

Having left my nuxe lip balm 200 miles away, two nights ago, I can now say 100% hands down that it is the best ever lip balm. I already have dry lips. I'm going out to buy another pot tomorrow.

Drink lots of water and carmex.

Korres Guava lip balm - its yummy, and it works.

I have a free option... drink enough water. I find I always get chapped lips when I am slightly dehydrated. Drink loads of water and it happens less.

Burts Bees lip balm, carry it with you at all times & apply regularly.

Lansinoh nipple cream- seriously!

Lypsil for me, I also have to buy on line.

Much better than the 8 _hour lip balm - to my surprise and disappointment.

A vote for Burts Bees here. For a cheaper option, the vitamin E spf15 lip balm from the Body Shop. I usually have half a dozen of them on the go at any one time (in pockets, in my handbag, in the car etc.) - it's the only thing I still buy from the Body Shop.

The Carmex pots are very good and not too expensive.

AvonCallingBarksdale Thu 19-Dec-13 18:02:05

Vaseline, every time!

The only other stuff I'd use is coconut oil. Fantastic stuff, but it may not work for everyone.

Chiggers Thu 19-Dec-13 18:00:50

I always make sure my face is well moisturised. I rub my finger down the fold where my cheek meets the nose and use that on my lips. My dad's dermatologist told me that the best stuff for your lips is your own natural oils. Works for me and I have a never-ending fresh supply without worrying about trying to find a container in a handbag.

Another vote for Carmex and 8 hour cream from me.

burnishedsilver Thu 19-Dec-13 17:34:15

Carmex.

MrsMcGregor Thu 19-Dec-13 13:02:21

Wow! Thanks everyone. I've ordered the Nuxe lip blam - grapefruit and honey, mmmm! Shall come back to this read though if Nuxe isn't for me!

trinity0097 Thu 19-Dec-13 12:05:32

Nivea sooth and protect gets my vote.

I have had great success with a surprisingly cheap option, to my great surprise. Tesco own brand medicated lip balm, this one. I see it says unavailable on the website, but they do have it in my local shop. Its about 90p for two tubes and works far better than most of the expensive stuff I have tried over the years.
