I need a really nourishing lip balm

(54 Posts)

My lips are dry and chapped and I'm in desperate need of a good lip balm to help them. Any ideas?

Nuxe miel. Non-greasy, very moisturizing.

Aquaphor is amazing and sorted out my very very very dry lips when I was on medication. You can order it from Amazon or Fishpond etc, haven't seen it in the shops.

Feels so good on and keeps my lips in such good condition I still religiously use it now.

Aquaphor lip balm

Lansinoh. It's very greasy but it's amazing if you have chapped, sore lips. Just use it sparingly.

I agree with Nuxe or La Mer but the latter is crazy £££ - very very good though.

Blistex relief cream in a little tube. It's not glamorous but works.

I swear by Carmex I could live without everything in my make up bag apart from that. I put it on each night and morning and lasts all day/night and I never have dry lips.

Agree with pp for blistex if v dry- in wind I sometimes get sores in the corner of my mouth and it always sorts them out.

Hoggle I also love Carmex but still often need Blistex morning and evening. Then I use Carmex during the day.

I use this one, it's the only one I've found which works for me and stops my lips flaking and bleeding.

Another rec for Nuxe Reve de Miel. Put it on morning and night and I can wear matte lipstick all day in between no probs - and I have chronically dry lips. It's the only one I've found that I don't need to carry around to re-apply in the day - plus it smells like tarte au citron grin

Blistex - the only thing that works (available in the wonderful Home Bargains at much cheapness)

VocationalGoat Mon 26-Oct-15 08:51:43

Dr. Harris & co. pot of lip balm.
Best ever.
Kiehl's comes 2nd.

GreenHamNoeggs Mon 26-Oct-15 08:56:08

Blistex. Tried them all.


MajesticSeaFlapFlap Mon 26-Oct-15 08:57:01

Yep blistex here too.

HermioneWeasley Mon 26-Oct-15 08:58:51

Elizabeth Arden 8 hour ointment stuff

Nuxe Reve de Miel - I can't live without it!

NotExactlyHappyToHelp Mon 26-Oct-15 09:14:26

Lanolips it turns my craggy flaky horrible lips into two little pillows. I have about 7 different tubes lurking in coat pockets, handbags, at work etc blush.

DoreenLethal Mon 26-Oct-15 09:17:49

I use coconut oil now for almost every skin softening issue.

rosepepper2010 Mon 26-Oct-15 16:04:53

I can't live without paw paw ointment - it's amazing

Burts bees lipbalm is full of nourishing oils and natural ingredients.

PeterParkerSays Mon 26-Oct-15 16:26:20

I would just use a rich moisuriser, even vaseline or Aveeno cream, at night before you go to sleep. Slather it on as you're less likely to lick your lips whilst you're asleep and it will have soaked in overnight.

I LOVE Eos lip balms, fun shape, not greasy really like them
