Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
because of the time of year my lips are horribly chapped and sore :( can anyone recommend a really good balm or chap stick?
im currently using vaseline with aloe and is not really working all too well
i had the carmex one but the menthol in it stung my lips!

    Drink more water, and keep using Vaseline or a chapstick. If its really bad, get a old toothbrush and brush the dead skin off your lips (lightly).

    Something with paraffin wax in it (like chapstick) will help it. I used to use balmbalm which is nice because it doesn't have nasties in it, but sometimes you need them when they're practically splitting.

    There's a cherry cola one you can buy in Primark, it's really creamy and long lasting. Also it tastes absolutely lush.

    I swear by Lush's Lip Service. Not cheap but it lasts forever.
