I live in Illinois and the weather has been so off this year. Any way, it is taking a toll on my lips and they are so chapped!!
My Burt’s Bee’s Ultra Conditioning lip balm is not helping.
What do you use?

I haven’t tried it yet (but will), my girlfriend discovered using Vaseline on your lips~

I am willing to try anything. I can’t even wear lipstick right now because they are chapped. 🙁

I had constant chapped lips for a year after having my baby. I started taking vitamin E and it went away. Maybe try that?

@jayebaby: Yikes! I can’t imagine a year. :/ I am going out to the stores today and probably buying whatever anyone suggests haha.

My fav things:
-vasaline (just straight from the jar, but they also make tubes for your lips)
-olive oil (I rub some on everytime I walk past my container of it I keep in the family room)
-exfoliate your lips (use a washcloth and gently rub in circles)
And whatever you do… DO NOT LICK YOUR LIPS!

I used to swear by mentholatum; I ran out a couple years ago and never ended up buying more because my Fiance hated the menthol smell. I think it’s very much like vasoline though, but menthol is tingly!

Aquaphor is my chapped lips life saver!

Get yourself some Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment. It works wonders on dry, cracked lips.
I also try to avoid getting dry lips by using Nivea lip balm before bed and under my lipstick in the morning, and drinking lots of water.

Vaseline at night and Burt’s during the day… I found the Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter worked best for me.

I am right with you on the Illinois winter experience! I personally think Vaseline Lip Therapy, in the little sqeeze tube, is the best. Less than $2 at just about any store. I keep mine on me at all times during the winter months.

I’ve tried just about everything, and the best is Cocoa Butter lip balm!

@jayebaby: Ah! Vitamin E! I’m going to take one right now.
Vaseline is not helping me – even Lanolin not doing it’s magic on these chapped lips. 🙁

I use vaseline and carmex.
