Lipstick works for me.

BrownEyedGirl80 Tue 04-May-21 19:10:44

Baby lotion?

Ringsender2 Tue 04-May-21 19:12:00

Butter?

I've also heard about the grease from your eyelids too. Maybe I'm making that up, but a weird thing to imagine

CustardGoodJamGoodMeatGood Tue 04-May-21 19:18:06

Baby oil, baby lotion, Sudocrem?

LavendulaAngustifolia Tue 04-May-21 19:19:35

Lanisoh or Sudacrem

devildeepbluesea Tue 04-May-21 19:20:25

I've used sudocrem in an emergency

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Tue 04-May-21 19:20:26

Honey?

Cooking oil would work beautifully. I sometimes moisturise my hands with olive oil when I'm cooking and washing my hands a lot in between tasks, I've used it on my lips and it's rather effective!

olive oil. Also great for sore, dry hands.

Another vote for Olive Oil

Nivea is ok on lips if you happen to have some. Perhaps any unscented moisturiser?

ememem84 Tue 04-May-21 19:32:25

Olive oil. Baby oil maybe. Sudocreme?

Funny, I was going to say the oil from the nose crease!

ILoveShula Tue 04-May-21 19:34:29

butter,olive oil or coconut oil.

Crazybirdlady Tue 04-May-21 19:37:27

Is sudocrem not a bit drying? I'd go with something oily, or a moisturiser. But most importantly drink loads of water

Mylittlepony374 Tue 04-May-21 19:39:01

Olive oil

Strawberrysaxifrage Tue 04-May-21 19:39:13

Any cooking oil or even butter

CauliflowerSneeze Tue 04-May-21 19:41:07

Hand cream. Don't put anything on you'd try and lick off, you'll make them drier

TheUnexpectedPickle Tue 04-May-21 19:45:16

I'd scrub the dry skin off with honey and sugar or your toothbrush then use olive or coconut oil.
Heavy duty hand cream like body shop hemp hand protector would also work, but don't lick it!

Not sure I can bring myself to put butter or olive oil on my lips shock

Although I have both.

I have some baby oil too. That feels a bit more palatable.

I'll give it a go!!

My grandmother used butter when she was young (1920s). She said the salt was healing.

That's made me smile Crunchymum. I would far rather have edible substances on my lips than chemical. (I was going to suggest olive oil ...)grin

Lansinoh is amazing for sore lips just in case anyone else is in the same position but happens to have nipple cream in the back of a cupboard 😂

I would definitely have gone for (edible and perfectly inoffensive) olive oil over baby oil 🤢
