Best lip salve for DD's very sore lips ? Have tried Vaseline to no avail

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour lip balm (for over night, so it doesn't get lost at school) and a cheap one for during the day.

Blistex lip cream - not the one in the plastic tube, but the small one in a metal tube. Hardcore stuff but works a treat on really sore/chapped lips. Don't squidge too much out as sometimes it doesn't stop!

here's the link

Oh, and all Blistex are on 2 for £3 in Superdrug (no, I don't work for them, and yes I stocked up yesterday!)

Carmex is v.good too. - Vaseline shite imo on lips!

Nivea lip balms are the shiz niz.

i have used leftover lasinoh nipple cream on very sore lips....its so greasy but really

I've been using the fruit chapsticks (2 for £2 in Boots) since my schooldays and have never found anything better.

Palmers is also good with nice smell.

Korres is lovely but can't afford to lose/replace constantly.

Virgin Vie Guardian Angel balm (use sparingly) is fab.

orangina Tue 07-Dec-10 13:24:49

carmex. Might be a bit strong for your dd though...

missmartha Tue 07-Dec-10 13:56:28

Badger Balm. I love it.

gailforce1 Tue 07-Dec-10 15:01:16

Boots essentials lipsalve SPF 15 in blue packaging. 99pence. Brillant valve and it does not taste!!

Agree with MooMinCow.
I have v sensitive lips and can't wear lipstick or any lip salves. Vaseline works most of the time but when they get proper sore, blisteze [or blistex as it is now] is the only way.

i've found chapstick medicated (the blue one) to be really good in this weather.

Cymes for cold sores and dry cracked lips. Available from Boots. Failing that, Waitrose baby bottom butter is the canine's testicles.

Carmex again - heavy duty and stings a bit at first but works like magic.

Just cleared DS's scabby lips in two days, and they were scabby as only a 15yo boy's can be!

Alouiseg Tue 07-Dec-10 16:37:45

Kiehls lip balm no 1.

Has sorted out the ds' scabby mouths since Saturday evening!! I'm convinced it's helped my split lip to mend really quickly too.

tx everyone

pipplin Tue 07-Dec-10 22:07:45

Burts bees- all natural one of the few which I'm not allergic too.

Montifer Tue 07-Dec-10 22:10:04

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream or lip balm or Lansinoh - both magically transform sore, dry lips

trumpton Tue 07-Dec-10 22:24:31

I had horrific dried and chapped lips after the last coldsore and found Lush honey lip balm WONDERFUL. Better than anything I had tried EVER.

Lilymaid Tue 07-Dec-10 22:28:22

Another vote for EA Eight Hour lip balm - but it costs nearly £20. Also like Burts Bees.

dietcokesholidaysarecoming Tue 07-Dec-10 22:29:15

Lanisoh or guardian angel balm.

Also like the lidls stick lipbalm
