Thread: Dry Lips!

    Default Re: Dry Lips!

    I sell Avon and their lip glosses & chapstick-things are great. I sell a lot of them, use them, can vouch for them.

    But also I think that vaseline-at-night is a good method. Just scrub the lips with your toothbrush or a washcloth, apply vaseline or shea butter, then go to bed, and don't use anything on your lips in the daytime.

    Because using something ALL the time works but it makes the lips stop making enough moisture on their own, so using it just at night (or just in the day) might actually work better...

    I think G Man is on the right track... however, (somewhat tangentially) I discovered Burt's Bees Rescue Serum that is $18 for an oz. (I think it might have been here?) and use that morning and night on all chapped or dry areas, around the eyes, around the mouth, and massaged into the lips. It's a combination of oils (including jojoba, I believe as the main ingredient), with vitamins A, C, and E, and some other nice essential oils, rose attar, and beta carotene. It works on lines as well as dry skin and has been a godsend this winter. It goes a LONG way too.

    It works perfectly under lipsticks too.
    RHM, I bought some of this based on your recommendation the other day. For whatever reason, I woke up one morning about a month ago to chapped lips. The last time this happened, which was three years ago, the only product that helped was Chapstick, so I swapped my Burt's Bees out for some. But the Chapstick wasn't cutting it this time (although it still felt better going on.) My lips hurt soo bad, I'd wake up and have to like, slather it on, they'd be so dry. Then they'd get all flaky and gross, and raw! I couldn't wear any lipstick, but my lips were such a screaming red that that didn't matter much. Then my corners started cracking and I was feeling pretty gnarly for a while. So it was a liberal layer of vaseline at night and chapstick all day long, but my lips weren't getting better and I was seriously at my wit's end. But this EOS stuff started repairing immediately. I bought some on my lunch break earlier this week, and I could tell a difference that night, and like, three days later they're almost completely healed. Testify! lol.

    Coconut oil is the first listed ingredient in EOS, so I might have to agree with you! The label says 100% natural and certified organic, and while I usually don't buy into those claims as having much merit, I do think that had something to do with how fast my lips have healed.

    You might be right! Neither helped me any; both were just a quick fix that did nothing to heal.

    If you like DIY stuff, the Texas Honey Company has a bunch of recipes.

    I literally just finished making my own (not their recipe but good stuff) with bees wax, coco butter, menthol, camphor, cajeput, eucalyptus, clove and cardamom.

    I use chapstick and vaseline on my lips. It's been years since I started using both products and it keeps my lips soft and moisturized.

    Trying out 'Burts Bees' lip balm, this stuff is good, but I'm a huge fan of Burts Bee's products, thanks to (Actialuthe) I'll try the BB's rescue serum next. I'm loving the BB's Radiance body lotion with royal jelly.

    I have psycho lips... and I tend to get those cracks at the corner of my mouth when winter approaches. Otherwise they're always dry and peeling, so I've tried everything.
    Jo Malone does a Vitamin E balm for the lip that is wonderful. When I put it on before, I wake up with transformed lips. I save it for emergencies.
    Jack Black balms are amaaazing. I have to carry one in my purse. It hydrates and lasts and doesn't feel icky, sticky or taste funny. The one I have is minty and it feels great. It just works wonders.
    Aquaphor is the gold standard for the extremely chapped. I put this on the corners of my lips to heal the cracks when they appear and it's truly a lifesaver. It's a bit uncomfortable for the whole lip for me, though, because it is quite thick.

    All my most effective lip balms were discontinued about a year ago. Now after some testing and trying out I'm quite happy with the Guerlain Lip Balm, which also comes at a reasonable price.

    @Sunnyfunny, I'm glad you enjoy the EOS. I'm still loving what it does for my lips & my wallet. My favorite is the sweet mint. My daughter's favorite is the lemon, with honeydew melon being a close second. I'm on the lookout for the elusive tangerine one. The kitty cat loves to bat them around, so we have to remember to put them away in the dresser drawer or Bella bounces them down the stairs.

    RHM & jzzbassman, I like the vanilla the best. I haven't seen tangerine anywhere. My cat likes to get my attention in the morning by batting my various lipstuffs off my nightstand, but she's left my EOS stuff alone. I'd put them all in the drawer, but I'm lazy and would rather yell at my Sal Pal for knocking things off. lol. She'll learn one of these days.

    Thumbs up Re: Dry Lips!

    I found the best thing for dry lips was a a lip scrub and lip balm by a young brand called Blyths..... It was so easy to use and left my lips looking super moist, luscious and definately plumped. I didnt even needed to apply lip gloss or lip stick afterwards as my lips looked like they already had colour on them...

    Nuxe Reve de Miel is the best thing that ever happened to my lips. It's not sticky or shiny, no petrolatum, only beeswax. I hate shiny lips, it makes people look like they're drooling...

    My lips only get dry during the winter months. Simply use a little lip balm in the morning and if needed reapply.

    I can't rave about this enough. It not only soothes dry and chapped lips, but actually seems to re-hydrate them too. The only lip product I've found that really works for me. It's somewhat pricey, but hey ho. The little frosted-glass pot is nice, too.

    Nuxe salve (the tube) is very moisturizing and healing...I really like Clinique superbalm as well. Both formulae work very well, neither encourages the constant reapplication or worrying off that a lot of flavoured products do.
