Natural (if poss) lipbalm which is as good as Kiehls?

As the title says, I'm after a natural (if possible) lipbalm which is as moisturising as Kiehls. So far I've tried Korres, Eos, Neutrogena (not natural I know), Akamuti, and Balm Balm, none of which come close.

Which lip balms would you recommend?

Carmex. Can't beat it

whostolemyname Tue 09-Aug-11 20:56:05

Burts bees. its ace.

OddBoots Tue 09-Aug-11 20:59:19

I get on well with but I've never tried Kiehls so can't compare.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I've tried Carmex and the tingliness irritated my lips and made them sore.

Am off to investigate Burts Bees and the Manuka one.

Thank you.

Any more ideas gratefully received.

pawpaw ointment- utterly brill- I am a convert since my Aussie SIL visited with a tube.

Figs and Rouge I like the Rose one but there are a few different scents. It's organic and I use it as a moisturiser for elbows/cuticles etc. You cam buy it in Boots as well as online. It's gorgeous.

I use everything balm by trilogy, here this stuff is pure genius. You can use it anywhere and will sort out dry skin, chapped lips, sun burn, razor burn, etc etc etc...

I love it.grin

Lansinoh grin

OOh I'm liking these suggestions. I think I might buy a selection of things.

In the meantime I have some Lansinoh left somewhere, so I'll give it a go. I love the packaging on Figs and Rouge, and think the pawpaw stuff looks good too- which brand do you use?

I use Trilogy moisturiser already, so will give the balm a go too.

Thank you all for being so helpful.

I use aveeno lotion
On mine not strictly for lips but works for me!

Indaba Tue 09-Aug-11 22:02:22



never used lip balm in my life then stayed in Soho House where they give it away "free"

am now hooked

I've got the Simmons pawpaw ointment. It has a natural oils/ waxes base- rather than petroleum jelly base. Lots of things have "natural ingredients" but still have a petroleum jelly base. The product info page has the ingredients. I love it- it smells lovely, I use it on the kids, on my hands, a wee bit on the ends of my hair. Honestly I think it's going to be popular...
<appols for gushing 'n all!>

I like Lucas Paw Paw ointment and Lanolips 101 (but only the natural one, the tinted one is rubbish and a different consistency).

Liz00 Wed 10-Aug-11 09:07:40

Burts Bees deffinately!

MissFoodie Wed 10-Aug-11 10:41:29

Sleepysox, Kiehl's is not natural i'm afraid, it's glorified vaseline, as are Carmex and Luxas Paw Paw- if you want petroleum free, and you like a tube rather than a stick, what about Living Nature?
otherwise there are some others I've tried:

VerityBrulee Wed 10-Aug-11 10:59:50

I love By Terry Baume de Rose

MissFoodie Wed 10-Aug-11 11:07:37

By Terry is also full of well as parabens....sorry!

WhereTheWildThingsWere Wed 10-Aug-11 11:23:03

I love Lush Honey Trap, but am now going to have to buy some Figs and Rouge stuff as the tins are amazinggrin

Littlepumpkinpie Wed 10-Aug-11 11:56:08

I use carmex the tingling is normal at first because its working on the dry skin that needs to be removed. Its lovely lip balm smile and i promise the tingling will stop very quick.

talkingnonsense Wed 10-Aug-11 16:13:04

Body shop have a new one that is apparently all natural and nice ( haven't tried it myself).

sleepysox Wed 10-Aug-11 16:22:17

Thanks for all the additional suggestions. I'll have a peruse once the kids have gone to bed.
