Vaseline is rubbish so looking for something new this winter. These ones seem readily available on the high street I am hoping at least one of them will be some good. If they are all rubbish though I will look for something different.

Burt's Bees
Body Shop Vitamin E lip balm

Actually not Burt's Bees. Just remembered I've tried that and I've also tried Blisteze (think it's called Blistex Relief cream now)

I like Mr Lipp - found it once and never again. So good luck and if you come across it let me know.

I swear by the Body Shop vitamin E one. I seem to have lost mine since yesterday and am starting to panic confused

DD uses Carmex.

Bit pricey but Eight Hour Cream is fab. Lasts forever too. The Cocoa butter one is quite good, they have that in big Boots stores.

Elisabeth harden "8 hours cream". It last for ever (so even if not cheap it is worth it).

Elizabeth Arden Eight hour lip protectant! Fantastic stuff, the only stuff I use.

preciousmum Thu 09-Dec-10 21:35:23

Notrogeanna one is good one as well

Carmex - the one in the tin.

Lansinoh. Bit greasy but awesome and long lasting.

Dr Hauschka

If you can get it, there is a pharmacy only one that contains lanolin in a lap balm form. It is fab.

nappyaddict Sat 11-Dec-10 18:16:40

Do you no what it is called?

LilRedWG Sat 11-Dec-10 18:20:10

I love Burt's Bees.

MooMooFarm Sat 11-Dec-10 18:25:55

I've tried loads and carmex is the only one which really works for me

MickyLee Sat 11-Dec-10 18:28:22

Another vote for 8 hr cream. I have the cream and the lipbalm, but think the cream is much better and lasts longer

Bellebelle Sat 11-Dec-10 18:37:16

Kitty - do you mean Dr Lipp? Space NK sell it on their website. I have a tube I bought a few years ago and agree it's fab, lasts ages.

bodyshop lip butter is FABBY

Blisteze or whatever it is called is brilliant.

Palmers Cocoa Butter is fab!
