What is the best lip moisturizer?

post #1 of 91
Thread Starter 
I did 3 rounds of accutane, the last was several years ago but it seems my lips will never get back to thier pre-accutane state. I can't wear lipstick anymore because of all the danged dryness. What is THE BEST lip moisturizer? Is there anything that will get my lips soft, supple, smooth again?
I just recently started putting my Intense Gel on them when I do my face but I need something on there all the time.

Re: LIPS.....whats the best lip stuff??

Aquafina makes a product called Hydrating Lip Oil, can get it in any store I think, its helped my dry lips, but I put vaseline on them at night and this seems to be the best.

Oh and I like this one too, C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip Shine, come in tints, and regular (no color) and Ultra Mentha Lip Shine, has a high mint flavor and tingles on your lips but it also seems to stay on quite a while.

Re: LIPS.....whats the best lip stuff??

I found that Carmex actually makes them peel more. My sister is a doctor and she saiy carmex is ad idea too cause lips because for one, it actually has an agent to cause peeling and two, lips become dependent on it....thats why I switched to the Vaseline. I have been carrying tubes of the vaseline lip care around since I beagn the accutane...this is what I'm saying...it's been 3 years now since my last accutane and I still can't go without have 10 tubes of vaseline...I have 2 in my truck, at least one in every room of my house, one in each coat pocket...I don't go without it. If I forget it....gross, cracked lips. I wonder if my lips have become dependent on vaseline, won't produce their own moisture since I have been slathering it on for so long?????

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I don't like Carmex either, made big chunks of skin peel off my lips. I prefer Blistex in the blue jar or Blistex Pro-care in a pale blue tube.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I love Kiehl's SPF 15 Lip Balm--super protective and hydrating, and goes great---in clear form--under lipstick. The tinted forms are more like deeply moisturizing glosses.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

When my lips are super dry, I use Aquaphor. I also use it on my cuticles and hands. I've found it's the best thing for dry skin/lips. You can get little chapstick size containers for your purse.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I was just in doing my face routine a little while ago, applied my Pure Vitamin Therapy and it suddenly hit me...why not give this a whirl on my lips :icon_roll
So, I'm gonna try this for a week or so and see how it goes.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I use Gold Bond Ultimate Moisture on everything but my face. It cured dry feet in two days nearly. So I thought, why not try it....and now my lips are in the best condition they have ever been. THis is the first time i can remember that my lips are actually not chapped. I can only use it at night, but its amazing.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

Vaseline petroleum jelly is the best remedy for me. My lips are nice and smooth now. I have a small one in my purse and a large one near my bedside. Cheap remedy!

LOL @ Kim's article, people actually think Carmex can cause cancer? LMAO. :)

Smith's Rosebud Salve is amazing. I also recommend drinking lots of water.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

Vasaline or petrolum jelly. I've been using this product for years, and I'l keep using it. It does wonders for you lips, and I put on a thick layer on my lips, and wake up with lips as soft at butter. It's great and cheap, and does the trick...

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I have heard that keeping a mint or hard candy in your mouth helps..coz it helps keep those mucous membranes moist and thus helping your lips from drying so fast.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I am a big lover of lip balms and my faves are:

La Mer
Burt's bees
Mama Coco's

I use mine regulary as well as gently exfoliating my lips with a wet toothbrush (not the same one you brush your teeth with!) and I NEVER have chapped lips! :icon_chee

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

Oh I was going to recommend something for her, but I see she is gone. Anyways, if anyone else has this problem, I used to put Neutrogena hand creme on my lips. It made a huge difference when I took accutane. Also I used pure vaseline at night a lot. Sometimes I still put heavy duty body moisturizer on my lips if they are chapped, lip balms arent enough for me when my lips feel like they are going to peel, shrivel up and fall off.

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

I've used CareGloss & Shine from Labello for a few months now and I love it. My lips aren't extremely dry but they are a little dry everyday and I use this, it gives a nice gloss effect

Re: What is the best lip moisturizer?

a few days ago, my lips were really dry and cracking. i had lost my lip balm (once again) and so i went to the store and got my favorite Burt's Bees. to say the least, my lips are no longer dry. they're soft and supple. :icon_smil
