How do you relieve your self of chapped lips? chapstick? Vaseline? Water? I use chapstick, but it tends to wear off quite quickly.

I ALWAYS have chapped lips. I think that Vaseline works the best but it's the one I hate to use the most. I like applying the chapstick before my lipstick...helps my lips and helps the lipstick last longer.

I wear chapstick, blistex, lip balm, or lip gloss when my lips get dry in winter.

Generally speaking, things don't "work" on me like they do others. BUT....one item I can praise till the cows come home is Avon Care Deeply Lip Balm. Man, that stuff is magic! I use it for chapped lips and within minutes can feel a diference and within couple hours -no more chapped lips! PLUS...I have bad seasonaly allergies and if you do to, you know how bad your upper lip and nose can get, I set aside a tube just for this and use it in those 2 areas and voila! I won't say instant relief, but I will say pretty darn fast relief! Because it has Aloe in it, I have even been desterated to get a patch of dry skin moist and the facial creams don't sem to be doing their job, so I'll "smear" on some Care Deeply, and I swear, pretty darn instant relief! I wait till it goes on sale for 99¢ and buy 10 of them. By the time I am down to the last few, I watch for them to be 99¢ again (regularly under 2 bucks I think) and buy 10 more! Nice system that is working for me!

As some one else wrote carmax is very good for chapped lips. I find that if I drink enough water my lips don't get chapped in winter. I think that because winter time is less hot and we don't perspier as much as we do in summer we tend to not drink as much water and so become dehydrated causeing chapped lips.

Water is a horrible solution! It will just end up making your lips more chapped. Drinking water is good to hydrate your body, but it isn't much on relieving chapped lips. I use carmax. It's pretty good. If I don't have my carmex I will use a little lotion in a pinch, but it's not the most savory tasting I must say. But I am a full on carmex addict!

dry lips - Dry lips is a definite no, no for me. Whenever I have dry lips, I use petroleum jelly or lip balm.

My lips get very chapped in winter. I use petroleum jelly at night and in the morning and that usually takes care of the problem for most of the day. I do carry around chap stick during the day in case I need it, but I agree with you that it just doesn't last very long.

Luckily i never seem to get chapped lips. I think it's also because the weather out here though. Sometimes i apply a lip balm, so they won't look too dry though.

When I delivered mail I had Chapstick in my pockets at all times, winter and summer. At night I often put Vaseline on my lips when they're chapped. That's the cheapest thing and it still works the best. Annie

Carmex is my best friend. I love it in the little pot as opposed to the tube. Its medicated, so not only does it get rid of chapped lips, but it soothes canker sores and splits in the lip that you sometimes get when you stretch them when they are chapped.
