Lips need moisturizing? I never use anything, and I run 50 miles a week, outdoors, even in winter.

The CO Bigelow overnight recovery balm is great. It means I don't carry around a tube that I forget I have and then wash with my clothes.

Mint flavored Chapstick is the best.

I've used them all, and my current favorite is The Naked Bee lip balm. Orange blossom honey flavor and SPF 15. Mostly organic ingredients. Love it!

I only use it when my lips are chapped, but Kisstixx is fantastic! They come in two packs with great flavors. I have strawberry daiquiri and pina colada. When you kiss someone wearing one of the flavors, they make a new flavor. ;)

Best of all, it works really good. I use it whenever I feel my lips starting to get chapped. It repairs them, and I don't have to wear it all the time.

You wear one, your partner wears the other...! Boom! Even if I'm alone, I wear it because the flavor reminds me of her :D

A few years ago my lips were very chapped. I started using Carmex every night before bed. I continued that habit after the cold season since I enjoyed having such smooth lips. Jump ahead to today: apparently my body no longer produces whatever it's called that keeps my lips soft/smooth. If I miss 1 day of not applying Carmex before bed, by the time I wake up, my lips are already beginning to become chapped. If I skip two days, forget it, it's terrible (doesn't matter the time of year).

I'm sure I could stop using it and get my body back to normal, however, it's such a pain in the ass because I literally have to go nearly two or three weeks with horribly chapped lips.



Just switch to something else without menthol in it. I got off Carmex years ago by switching to Aveeno. Now about my other drug habits...

I have been using Smith's Rosebud Salve (original) for years. It is the only product that helps my all-year-round chapped lips. Note: I am allergic to everything known to man -- this is gentle, light and effective.

This Swedish stuff I found at Walmart called LypSyl. It's made with beeswax and just enough mint. It's surprisingly good!

Chapstick - Peppermint with Vanilla
OR
Chapstick - Spearmint
OR
Chapstick - Strawberry

Depending on my mood. I don't like cherry flavor though. It reminds me of medicine.

all of those "moisturizers" contain drying agents that actually make your lips MORE dry and thus you continue to use them.

I use bacon fat!

I was a Burt's Bees fanatic for years but suddenly developed a bad allergy to it. Puffy red swollen itchy lips are not hot. Switched to Nivea since and haven't had a problem. Still not sure what the exact ingredient is that's the culprit.

Straight Neosporin, (you get used to the taste but try not to use it internally) I take the risk because it helps prevent empetigo outbreaks

I guess if there was a pointless poll this would rank in the top five but if you need to know what lip moisturizer to get this probably would be in the top five. I found a moisturizer that works really fast, less than 24 hours, it is called "chicken poop". It is not the real thing but whatever is in it works great.

Only need it once or twice a winter, but I like Vaseline Lip Therapy. Put it on at night and usually by morning all's well.

Ok I actually use 3 of the listed items. They all server a separate but noble cause.

In the winter when use is heavy I use Blistex. By far the best at keeping lips from getting chapped, and repairing chapped lips. It's main flaw is that it melts a high temperatures. I keep one in the breast pocket of all my jackets and one in my car during the winter.

Chap-stick (limited edition Cherry) is used when my car can get hot in the transition months and during the summer. It is much less prone to melting.

Finally Bert's Bees. It is basically just an oily wax. It doesn't have medication that helps prevent chapped lips. But your body will stop trying to keep your lips moisturized if you continually apply chapstick. So after winter is ending I switch everything to Bert's Bees to wean myself off of Blistex.

And I call all of them chapstick!

I also got a generic stick from Arapahoe Basin ski resort a few years back. Whatever that is, is great. Stays in my ski jacket.

If man enjoyed having cracked and bleeding lips that are so painful you don't want to talk, smile or eat, then we would not rub oil on our lips.
