Bought it today on an impulse because I've heard so many times how good it is.

Good for what? It's very sticky! I thought it was some miracle cream that you slathered on at night and you woke up looking like Keira Knightley!

Apparently it's just to put on chapped lips?

Pah! hmm

maybe it means put it on and hide for 8 hours

lansinoh is cheaper and has the same effect.

apparently it's good for cuticles, too.

body shop hemp salve much better for hands.

Ah I have 4 tubes of lasinoh Expat, now I know what to do with them. Thanks

expatinscotland Sat 30-Aug-08 19:10:25

they're really good for chapped lips, cuticles and scrapes that are healing up (so is BioOil).

elizabeth arden created it for her horses. Absolutely true.

slim22 Sat 30-Aug-08 19:12:44

i use as SOS face mask when skin dry/sensitive

but yes expat has a point with lansinoh

expatinscotland Sat 30-Aug-08 19:14:09

poor horses!

they had to endure that vile smell and couldn't even tell her how obnoxious it is.

hadn't she ever heard of bag balm?

Here's cynical for you. Lansinoh - usually sits in the baby section at Sainsbury's. yep, there it sits all year round.

Except when the 1/3 sale is on, and then suddenly goes to the pharmacy section.

Bought a ton of it when the 1/2 sale on baby stuff was on earlier this year.

expatinscotland Sat 30-Aug-08 19:18:11

i need to pick up some for this baby.

i used about half a tube with DD2, and then used the rest on my cuticles and lips blush.

hatrick Sat 30-Aug-08 19:22:10

Expat- you arewelcome to a tube of mine, it is just sitting here.

LaVieEnRose Sat 30-Aug-08 19:32:20

bugger angry oh well, i'll slap it on tonight anyway. And probably wake up looking like a bloody horse! hmm

...is good for patting lightly on cheeks in icy cold winds we used to get in the winter..........vaseline does much the same thing, tbh.

Valuable (or expensive?) lesson learnt, I think.

In JOhn Lewis' magazine- the Source- latest tissue- 8 ht cream has been voted THE best skin cream of all time ( by whom I don't know.)

I have got some- was given it- good for cracked skin on feet but too sticky and smells like antiseptic, to use any where else.

ilovemydog Sat 30-Aug-08 20:13:08

best skin cream - for horses. Great for those sore hooves smile

expatinscotland Sat 30-Aug-08 20:14:52

best skin cream, for burn victims.

seriously, it honks!

don't feel too bad, though, i think a lot of us have learned the hard way what rubbish it is.

fortunately, i learned in the US where it's quite a bit cheaper than here.

i've learned similar lessons with Great Lash mascara and Touche Eclat.

LaVieEnRose Sat 30-Aug-08 20:58:57

It's not too bad on my lips, bloody expensive for a lip balm though!

cmotdibbler Sat 30-Aug-08 22:18:52

See, thing is, I blardy love it. When sitting on a plane, its the only thing that will mean I don't look like a flaky mess at the end of the trip. And it deals with manky eczema outbreaks etc really, really effectively.

I do use Lanisoh on my toes though..

WilfSell Sat 30-Aug-08 22:27:22

it does help overnight if you have VERY dry skin though. But I wouldn't bother unless you look like Davros [as I do].

expatinscotland Sat 30-Aug-08 22:32:21

it's a good substitute for Vick's or Olbas oil, too, if you find yourself bunged up and out of either of those products.
