This thread is a life saver! I'm going to invest in like 10 tubes of all the various products you've all recommended. If I get dry lips, I get *gasp* cold sores. Yucky!

This is what I use on my lips, and I think its amazing.
Its also edible so its really tasty.
Please forgive the sexual nature of it, but it is just fantastic on the lips.

Haha! Thats awesome. I'll probably need to get some more soon.
I wish I had some right now, but its at home and I'm at work and my chapstick just isn't very soothing right now :(

I've used 'softlips' forever now, it's got just the right texture and light flavor for me. I'm a bit obsessive with it also, and feel total nekkid without it. Probably have over a dozen tubes scattered throughout my home, car, and office.

When I got my braces on, my orthodontist gave me a tube of Burts Bees and I just love it.

When I get chapped lips though, I depend on Blistex MedEx. Effective, and it's not too strong.

I just bought some softlips tto try (with SPF) and I love it. Tastes great, soft lips, and isn't waxy. I think I like it better than burts bees!

I've become a lib-balm addict since braces. From Walgreens generic, to Burts Bees, to SoftLips, Lip Smackers, Vaseline, even A&D ointment for those horrid cracks from dry lips from being sick. Lets not forget Aquaphor, ChapStick, Carmex and MedEx.

My favorite keeps changing. My newest addiction is kinda fun!
