    I like Avon Moisture Therapy lip balm. Not waxy, no color, no flavor, SPF 15. I buy in quantity when they run a sale so they are cheap (99 cents or less) ; my husband and daughter use it too.

    I have a little pink pot of Korres Jasmine Lip Butter ( made with shea butter ) that is wonderful . It's from Sephora. Leaves a nice light sheen on your lips too .

    I think vaseline doesn't look too greasy, though doesn't work so well for me anymore. I use Dr. Hauschka's Lip Care Stick but there is a large range of lip balms that will probably work as well for you and cost a lot less! Lots of people use unrefined (supposed to work better than refined) shea butter or jojoba oil. I like jojoba oil, not too oily looking as it's actually a wax and a good moisturiser for skin too.

    I really like C.O. Bigelow's "My Favorite Lipbalm." It is moisturizing and not sticky. They also have a great lip scrub that I use. The products work really well together. You can find them at Bath & Body Works among other places.

    Yes, it's great! You put it on with your finger, scrub, and wipe off with a tissue. Garden Botanika has one that's more of a stick (like a lipstick tube) with the scrubbers in it. That one you scrub with the stick and it leaves behind moisturizers. I'm sure there are other brands as well.

    I like Avon Moisture Therapy lip balm. It is red in color and it is of strawberry flavor. By applying this lip balm my lips get red in color. It also contain SPF 15 which protect our lips from sunlight. I buy it from Avon agent. My sister also use it.

    Try Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour cream. It's pretty universal - you can use it on dried out nails, too.
    The smell is a tad medicinal though.

    Sleep with honey on your lips overnight, and try to avoid licking it off. Very good for healing dry & cracked lips. It has antiseptic & antibacterial properties, and it's also a natural humectant (attracts and retains moisture).

    I use a toothbrush and vaseline, or a damp washcloth and vaseline, to exfoliate my lips. Then I use vaseline or a Burt's Bees lip balm. I have a few lip balms around, one in a couple of bags, one downstairs, one on my night table. If it's close to hand I use it, doesn't really matter what kind so much as remembering to use it.

    p.s. I don't think vaseline looks bad or too wet. Just use a small amount and replenish when you need it. The nice thing about vaseline or any lip balm (as opposed to lip gloss) is it doesn't get all gacky in the corners of my lips. I hate that.

    I love aquaphor for lips! Aquaphor is cheap and effective and really works wonders. In fact, I have my husband using it on his hands for his eczema and it helps to keep his eczema at bay.
    I also agree with taking a toothbrush and gently exfoliating your lips before bed and applying aquaphor. But you can use it any time of day as well. Give it a try- it really works well!

    I use a lot of bonne belle lip smackers and various tinted balms. I drink a lot of water so I don't tend to have dry lips very often.
    There are occassions when my lips become a bit dry or cracked though. For these occassions I've discovered a miracle cure.
    Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Protective Recovery Complex. I still have about 3ml of a 15ml bottle I bought many years ago because now I only use it for my lips. Trust me, this stuff is amazing. It's not meant for lips but who cares right? You need one tiny drop and voila - lips fixed instantly no matter how cracked they are! It's so good it's almost peverse.

    The thing with chapsticks etc they make them taste nice so you lick your lips and that makes them even drier.

    You can use a toothbrush to scrub your lips and get rid of dried skin. Use a brand of balm that has no petrolum(sp) as that dries out the lips and is only really a barrier but you lick off again. Something that actually sinks in. Wearing lipstick and gloss actually dries out your lips too.

    I use an organic balm which is for all over the body. Only use it on my lips after I clean my teeth, so twice a day.

    Carmex works wonders. It says "For Cold Sores" but it works sooo good against winter coldness and wind. You can find it just about anywhere (Duane Reade, Walgreens, etc.).

    +1 to the Carmex. It's "persistent" and contains lanolin which does soak in and moisturize/soften.

    For dry, cracked lips, and cuticles, the BEST solution that I have ever found is, YSL's lip balm. It was designed for both lips and cuticles, and it works tremendously well! I am a former makeup artist for YSL, so trust me, I have used it many of times, and continue to do so. This balm has also been recommended to be used on areas of the face that received cosmetic tattooing, such as the lips. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

    I use Dr.Haushka lip balm at night and sometimes during the day, no petroleum products ever.

    Elizabeth Arden - 8 hour cream. A permanent fixture in my make up bag. Used for dry lips, lipgloss, softening cuticles, elbows/knees/problem patches, sun/wind burn, post waxing... the list goes on! At 22 it seems a bit much for a lipbalm but it's so versatile and a little goes a VERY long way.

    shea butter for every such thing.

    My daughter & her friends introduced me to EOS shea butter lip treatment. You can get it at Walgreens or CVS & it's not expensive at all. I've used all sorts of lip stuff & I like this the best. Not only has it completely gotten rid of chapped lips but it's also helped reduce the tiny lines I had around my lips. (Hated those!)
    It works perfectly under lipsticks too.

    I picked some of this up the other day because they were out of the kind I usually use, and it looked interesting. The only problem is the lemon tastes so good I want to lick my lips.

    Well, one other problem......the EOS comes in a ball shaped container and my 9 month old labrador puppy is obsessive about balls so when I get it out where she sees it, she becomes convinced we are going to have a game of fetch :-)

    I think Chap Stick and Vaseline do more harm than good. They seal the lip so moisturr can't get out ... or IN.

    Lately I've been using Bobbi Brown's lip balm (pricey but wotlrth every penny) and Carmex Moisture Plus (no tingle or camphor stink).
