My lips are very dry and are cracked and have even started bleeding!

What's the best chap stick thing to use!

VanGoghsLeftEar Mon 18-Dec-17 09:46:39

I use Blistex. After a day or so you will feel an improvement.

Ashamedandblamed Mon 18-Dec-17 09:47:21

I heard nipple cream- google it

Boots do a cheap one.

People swear by it

I have the same and this stuff sorts it right out within a day or so. It does make your lips peel though where they're chapped, but just go with it.

Body Shop hemp lip balm.

WBlistex without a doubt, makes them feel better after just a few minutes of putting it on. Keep applying regularly for 24 hrs and it should be gone so after

Hippadippadation thanks for the link. I'll get the blistex med balm. Would this be ok for daily maintenance not just as a repair balm

Dozer Mon 18-Dec-17 10:20:47

DRink lots of water too.

MotherofKitties Mon 18-Dec-17 10:23:38

Lanisoh nipple cream; it's hardcore moisterising goodness! I use it on my lips as they get very dry in the winter and my usual Vaseline and blisterex don't cut it!

You can get it in boots or amazon, hope that helps xx

Travaille Mon 18-Dec-17 10:25:02

Ooh I'm pregnant at the mo so I will be buying nipple cream soon anyway! Thanks for the tip!

Blankscreen Mon 18-Dec-17 10:25:10

Nipple cream. Then use daily to prevent them coming back

Alwaysatyke Mon 18-Dec-17 10:26:34

When it's really bad I (carefully!) use savlon first which seems to cure the worst of it within a day, then lip balm as normal after that. You have to be careful not to lick your lips but it's honestly a miracle worker!

lucysmam Mon 18-Dec-17 10:28:22

Blistex or Carmex; I use both alllll the time & my lips are lovely and soft.

Used the carmex on sore bits under dd2's bottom lip on Saturday and by Sunday it was much better. Only trouble is, she keeps helping herself now so I'm going to have to replace the tube sooner than expected.

Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm in the pot. 3 for 2 at Boots.

Skin Salvation lip balm by Pure Potions is also good.

I’ve tried everything going but the one that does the job for me is called Nova Scotia Fisherman’s Extreme Care. It’s from their own site (google Nova Scotia Fishermans lip balm) and it’s £3.95 and lasts months. It’s like a chunky chapstick. It’s made with sea kelp and I don’t know what’s in it but for me it’s brilliant. It stays on for hours too. My lips are soft for the first time in years.

Vaseline.

Travaille Mon 18-Dec-17 17:31:58

I got the blistex med and a O'Keefe's lip balm. The blistex makes my lips have a strange sensation which I wasn't expecting!

OneFlewOverTheMumsNest Mon 18-Dec-17 18:12:30

Yes, lansinoh is amazing!

OneFlewOverTheMumsNest Mon 18-Dec-17 18:15:34

Otherwise Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. The proper, gloopy one in the tube, not the stick.

LumpySpaceCow Mon 18-Dec-17 18:22:58

Lansinoh nipple cream!

PoptartPoptart Mon 18-Dec-17 18:23:00

A bit late now if your lips are already chapped but I find prevention is better than cure. Every October I start religiously using lip balm every morning and night, it prevents chapping. Maybe next year op. In the meantime just slather it on as much as you can and hopefully it will help

MikeUniformMike Mon 18-Dec-17 18:25:46

Watch the ingredients in lip balm. Some have exfoliants like salicylic acid in them, and they will make your lips drier.

Foodylicious Mon 18-Dec-17 18:27:35

Yep lansinoh really is amazing!

Especially round your nose when you have a cold to stop it getting dry and flakey

LuckyAmy1986 Mon 18-Dec-17 18:37:58

I would NOT use vaseline. It ruined my lips. Someone on here recommended Burt's Bees and it sorted them out.

FlowerPotMum Mon 18-Dec-17 18:38:59

Blistex or carmex. I find vaseline and nivea ones make then drier. 'Chapstick' is good, but eventually leads to drier lips imo.
Lots of water too.
