Chapstick isn't healing my chapped lips - not did it prevent them! What's best please? I've found Blistex good in the past but maybe there's something better out there?

I have a free option... drink enough water. I find I always get chapped lips when I am slightly dehydrated. Drink loads of water and it happens less.

Having left my nuxe lip balm 200 miles away, two nights ago, I can now say 100% hands down that it is the best ever lip balm. I already have dry lips. I'm going out to buy another pot tomorrow.

Coconut oil, rub into your lips.

Gently scrub with a damp flannel to get rid of flaky bits.

Reapply coconut oil, then your normal moisturiser over the top to seal the moisture in.

Then go to bed and wake up to lovely lips!

Vaseline. Nothing works better than vaseline.

Palmers coco butter one is lush.

Carmex used to contain alcohol which is drying, it may have changed though.

If you're a fan of Carmex lip balm and know someone going to the States, ask them to stock up for you. They sell 3 for $1.99 in most drug stores. Of course you might be crossing the Pond yourself...

Camex do a lip balm. It comes in 3 or 4 subtle colours and gives your lips a bit of shine and colour. It has the same tingle and cooling effect of the pot, so I assume it is the same stuff. This is my everyday bit of glam!
