The corners of my lips are dry to the point where they are cracked and bleeding. It’s so bad that it hurts to open my mouth. I lived in MN for a decade, and winters there gave me plenty of opportunities to try out lip stuff. None of my favorites are working (obviously). Please tell me what works for you!

I like anything with bees wax in it. I find that works the best, especially Lypsell (spelling??)

Burts Bees is my favorite stuff, but I also like Carmex. I always need something that coats the lips.

I have been using Burts Bees, but not the minty kind. The one I like best is the Pomegranate one with the reddish/purple cap.

I use the Burt’s Bees passionfruit lip blam with sunscreen.
Also make sure you get your B vitamins and some more fat in your diet for the cold winter!

I use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter – Lip Butter. It is the BEST lip balm I’ve ever used. I have accutane-induced dryness and I wear a bite guard to bed at night. The combination of the two destroys my lips, they’re mucho cracked/painful/dry when I wake up. I put some of this on before I go to bed and I wake up MUCH more comfortable! I would say 80% of it still on my lips too. Which is something that other lip balms had a problem doing.
ETA: The link is for a pack of 12 on Amazon, so that’s why the price is $23. :p I buy them one at a time from my local Walgreens.

EOS – I even got my partner into them! He just hates that they are a ball shape so he can’t easily toss one in his pocket in his scrubs at work. He likes the mint and I like any of the berry type ones (strawberry sorbet, passion fruit, etc).

I am glad I stumbled upon this thread cuz I’ve been having problems with chapped lips too and my chapstick isn’t helping. Sometimes I use vaseline which seems to help a bit though.

Burt’s Bees! I love it!
On a different note, my brother had jaw surgery and they went in thru his inner lip (where it meets the gum), and the healing left his lips really dry. He used the Burt’s Bees and it really helped. I’m sure his Fiance appreciated it. He used more Burt’s Bees than Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler combined. If it can heal surgery lips it can heal anything. 😉

Try neosporin + pain relief. It works wonders, but tastes awful. I moved from houston (high humidity) to dallas (low humidity) and my lips are letting me have it. The neosporin works quickly and my lips feel great (plus the pain relief is almost instant). I usually mix it with a better tasting chapstick so that the taste is diminshed a little.
