I think the person who keeps telling us we are wrong has her own natural lip balm business and is trying to steer us away from the shops. I love the palmers cocoa butter with vitamin E. I use it in the morning and it lasts all day. My lips used to be so dry but not anymore.

I'm 'the person who keeps telling'. I'm not saying anyone is wrong. I'm saying the ingredients will be doing the harm and causing the problem. I only know this as I had the same problem. I thought it would be helpful information to all. As it was to me years ago when I didn't know this. And no, I do not have any business, I work at Coles.

^And to add, I used to use Carmex (loved it) , for over 10yrs and would recommend it. But also had dry lips and always carried it and applied it countless time a day. And since my lips never really got any better (only felt good once I put it on, then it would wear off), I looked into cause, and hence the ingredients.

Well you don’t have to say it in everyone’s posts. Just make your own post with your advice and leave it at that. Different products work for different people.

Carmex lip balm. I get mine from the chemist. First time I used it I had been camping for 4 days and my lips were so cracked, dry and sun and wind burnt that even opening my mouth to talk caused them to bleed profusely. I used this stuff when I got home and within 2 days they were back to normal. It tastes like crap and smells weird, but damn it works lol

Thank you ^. As I stated in my post, I used it for 2 days and my lips were back to normal. I have been using it for over 15 years fishing, camping, working on the farm and everything with no problems. 1-2 days of use then back to normal until next time I decide to stay out in the sun all day with little to no water

So I check out what 'that' lady was on about. Not my words so don't atrack me, here is a copy and paste from the Paula's Choice website;
Dry Lips Causes

A surprising cause of dry, cracked lips is using lip products that contain ingredients such as peppery capsicum, menthol, menthoxypropanediol (an especially potent form of menthol), camphor, peppermint, ginger, mint oil, cinnamon, and fragrance (natural or synthetic), all of which cause skin-damaging irritation. These ingredients are shockingly common in lip products, particularly those that claim to plump lips or even to care for cracked lips!

When lips become dry (especially for men, who typically don’t wear lip gloss or lipstick), we tend to automatically and repetitively lick them to restore moisture, but that’s futile. Licking your lips makes them feel better for a few seconds, but it’s actually a bad thing to do. Your tongue transfers saliva from your mouth to your lips, which eats away and destroys the thin layer of skin covering the lips. This can easily become a vicious cycle, leading to painful, cracked, and even severely dehydrated lips.

REPLY

You can inform people, I think that’s great and helpful. But it should be posted once and left. To go on everyone’s posts and continually post her thoughts was rude and unnecessary. The OP wanted suggestions so that’s what people were doing. What works for one may not work for others. She just turned it into an argument by hijacking everyone’s posts with her own thoughts.

Camphor, menthol, or salicylic acid can cause inflammation and loss of hydration. This, in turn, causes your lips to need more moisture so you keep applying the product and it turns into a vicious cycle

This is brilliant stuff, I recommend it too. I’m not sure what the other lady is on about but I only use it twice a day. Every other lip balm I’ve tried tingles on my lips. Dermal is very hydrating and feels nice.

Well that wasn’t the case for my daughter. It worked brilliantly for her and is recommended by dermatologists while on the meds because of the intense drying it causes. She didn’t like the one with spf but the regular one was perfect.

ANSWER

Any lip balm or moisturiser without camphor, menthol, or salicylic acid AND SPF15 during the day - lips only burn, not tan. Don’t need the sunscreen during the night.

Try not to lick your lips or bite or pick at them.

Lip balm examples;
-Nivea - most of Nivea’s lip range with SPF, read labels, such as ‘A Kiss of Smoothness Hydrating Lip Care SPF 15’
-CeraVe - ‘Broad-Spectrum SPF 30’

For night - any good antioxidant moisturiser you want (or if you are inside).

I like ‘Lanolips Golden Dry Skin All Over Salve’ for when I’m inside out of the sun.

If you are unsure of ingredients go to beautypedia(dot)com to look up the product or to ‘Paula’s Choice’ click on the ‘Expert Advice’ tab in top right hand corner then on ‘Ingredients List’ - here you can individually look up every ingredient in every makeup and skincare thing you own.
