Cheaper version of Jo Malone lip balm? Nipple cream?! Vitamin E?

I have been using the jo malone lip gloss thing, which I love but as it's £23 for 15ml, it's super pricey!

Does anyone have a good alternative? It reminds me of nipple cream, which seems to work for me grin

A hopeful bump for the evening crowd. Anyone?

Since breastfeeding my DD, I've come to realise that Lasinoh nipple cream is the best lip balm! I still use actual balms bought before my daughters birth during the day, but for nighttime it's Lasinoh all the way and the only 'lip balm' I will now repurchase.

The Elizabeth Arden 8hr lip balm is as good but no cheaper. I ask for it for Christmas and my sister buys it in duty free. (It's also the business for noses raw from too much blowing)

Molton Brown is pretty good!

The unscented Badger Balm

Ooh I'll have a look at some of these, thank you! The jo Malone one genuinely could be lasinoh, just repackaged, they are so similar! I don't know if whipping out nipple cream at work and rubbing it on my lips will be the best move for me though as I work with mainly blokes. For £5.99 though it's bloody tempting!

Thank you!

Decant into one of those tiny travel pots? (Or a 99p Vaseline tin)

You can get those little pots 10 for a pound on eBay.

A big second for Lansinoh! Its the best for really dry or cracked lips.

Yeah Lansinoh all the way!
