I just want one that stays on for a few hours and leaves my lips moisturised.

Price wise I am prepared to spend up to twenty pound as I need one so much I am prepared to fork out!

Le Roche posay do two, a lip balm and a bigger tube of ointmenty type stuff that's absolutely brilliant if you crack abd bleed.

They were in the region of €8.50 and €12 respectively but they last forever and really work

Itsgottabebags Thu 11-Oct-12 19:21:12

Right. That's on my list to look at.

I had a loccitane honey one. It was the best I've ever had by a mile!

The dermalogica one or the neutrogena one.

Have you tried Blistex Relief Cream? Cheap but v good

susiefen Thu 11-Oct-12 19:30:20

Burts Bees is the best one I have ever used (and I've tried a few!smile)

Mintyy Thu 11-Oct-12 19:30:58

Carmex, the one and only.

Flexitol do a great one

Elizabeth Ardern 8 hour cream in a lip balm. Brilliant. Also Burts Bees and lansinoh used here! Blistex to repair underneath on occasion.

MamaGeekChic Thu 11-Oct-12 19:38:11

Carmex, I prefer the wee pot to the tube

LittleBlackDress Thu 11-Oct-12 19:39:14

Nip balm grin

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 11-Oct-12 19:39:54

I can second Burts Bees as a good lip balm.
But when I had chemo and my lips cracked horribly, I tried seemingly every lip balm out there, and it was Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream that helped in the end (and hence is what I now use). Not the stick - that also was no use - but the greasy stuff in the tube!

You are prepared to pay? In that case there is no contest here, you NEED Clarins lip balm, it is fantastic smile

LittleBlackDress Thu 11-Oct-12 19:41:42

X-post yy to the tube and not the stick

QuietNinjaTardis Thu 11-Oct-12 19:42:03

Carmex is fab.

SecondHandNews Thu 11-Oct-12 19:42:18

Another one for Eight Hour Cream. I used to get pretty dry lips (when we all had those tins of vaseline at school!) and this is the only thing that helps. Don't suffer at all any more. Put it on before bed and throughout the day - the cream is nice and shiny too for daytime. Agree - not the stick, just the cream in the tube.

TheFlumpsHaveEyes Thu 11-Oct-12 19:42:20

Carmex - no frills but makes your lips lovely and soft.

mathanxiety Thu 11-Oct-12 19:42:38

Carmex (another vote).

Agree with nip balm - it really is the best on lips. Once you've used Lansinoh, everything else feels thin and insubstantial in comparison.
