It's barely even cold and hey my lips are getting really dry. Any recommendations for a nice, healing balm please.

Nuxe honey balm in a pot - my desert island luxury.

Not sexy or glamorous but I like the blistex cream in a little metal tube. Works wonders. I find trad lip balms just sit on my lips.

I bout the nuxe one as it was raved about. It just feels gritty and drying to me.

Carmex in the yellow tube with the red top. It's less than £2 but the best I've found.

Burts bees, I like the honey one best. Also love the very unsexy but good blistex in the metal tube if they ever get really bad.

I have really sore lips at the moment! I use blistex, let it soak in, then cover with something thick and gloopy that helps my lips feel protected and moisturizer. My choices for this are L'Occitane original lip balm in a tube (so the unflavored one), Clinique super balm (an old favourite) or Clarins lip oil (a new favourite).

I also like Hurraw lip balms for whe they are just dry and not really sore.

Thanks .... yes the Blistex in the little tube is fab but I save that for when they're realllly badly chapped - just dry at the moment. Tried Nuxe in the past and it was okay but might give Burts Bees or Carmex a go this time. Thanks!

Oh cross post there .... will have a look at those three. What's the Clarins Oil like .... does it moisturise well?

I had the worst dry lips last year that nothing not even blistex fixed and the only thing that worked was body shop hemp lip balm. Amazing stuff.

Clarins have one in a blue tube it s brilliant.
Also Kiehls

Lanisoh nipple cream. It's 100% lanolin and hands down the absolute best thing you can get for dry lips. I used to suffer from chapped lips until I started slapping a load of that on every night before bed. Not even slightly dry now. Wouldn't be without it.

Even if you get another type for the daytime, really recommend you try the lanisoh for nighttime.

It's in the baby section in Boots.

Pure lanolin.
I get it from amazon. Brillant for lips, dry patches anywhere, hands and feet.

Body Shop Shea Butter for day to day. Decleor lip balm as a treat as it's expensive

Another vote for Lansinoh or pure lanolin.
My lips are dry and sore year round. Lanolin is the only thing that doesn't irritate them further. Amazing stuff

I us Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream overnight - it was the only thing that helped when I was taking roaccutane for acne.

I misspelt it in my pp. One day I'll get it right. grin

Burts bees have saved my lips for the last couple of years. I like the pomegranate one as it's got a bit of a tint to it so makes me look less dead.

rightknockered Fri 04-Nov-16 13:59:55

Another vote for Burts Bees. Fabulous stuff

poppym12 Fri 04-Nov-16 15:44:21

I use carmex or korres. Just the thought of lasinoh makes me itch as I have an allergy to lanolin. And wool. And all things sheep related.

Chickpearocker Fri 04-Nov-16 20:13:04

I got an alpha h one in marks and Spencer's, really seemed to work

taybert Fri 04-Nov-16 20:18:01

poppym12, Carmex contains lanolin too.
I'm on roaccutane and have tried many a balm. Aquaphor is my current favourite with carmex coming second.

Lanolips lemonaid. Brilliant stuff, comes in a tube, costs about £9 and lasts forever. I always swore by Blistex but Lanolips is the best.
