i’m a believer in carmex. a little bit of carmex under lipstick or lipgloss works wonders for me.

I used to have super dry, cracked lips, and I’d never be able to wear lipstick cause it would look awful. Mac lip conditioner in the squeeze tube has totally changed them, I’ll never go back. I constantly have it on me, and I love the glossy finish of it. Some say Vaseline works just as well, but I actually disagree. Plus this has a better smell/texture/taste.

When i’m brushing my teeth in the morning i’ll brush my lips with my tooth brush & put chapstick on afterwards

I’m religious to Burt’s Bees regular lipbalm &&& EOS [Evolution of Smooth] round lipbalms!!

It’s hard for me to find brands that won’t give me the “cottage cheese” lip with the filmy stuff forming. Burt’s & EOS doesn’t do any of that & provide the silkiest canvas for my lipsticks or lipgloss!♥

I have a thing for chapstick, i swear there are about 4 different kinds in my purse at one time. Rose bud salve is my FAVORITE!! And just for the record, KORRES jasmine lipbalm is WAAY overrated!…just sayin πŸ™‚

i usually do the same like you christine, moisture every day (chapstick from bodyshop) and at night i use macs tinted lip conditioner in soothing beige, which is waaaay to dark for me…but very helpful πŸ™‚

Bourjois Baume de Nuit is my HG lip balm. It’s called a night lip balm but I use it ’round the clock. They stopped carrying it at my local Ultas (and Ulta.com) so I was on a mission to find a replacement. In that process I found Korres Lip Butters, and while the formula felt the same, I wasn’t a fan of the scent and wasn’t interested in colors. I also tried Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight (Christine, I think that may be the same as your intense lip therapy?) which I do like a lot, just not enough to spend that kind of money. I found and ordered 3 of my Bourjois on eBay. All 3 plus shipping from overseas was cheaper than one Philosophy balm! The Pilosophy lip balm does have longer staying power though…

i always have cherry Chapstick on. and i take it with me everywhere. it’s probably my most used beauty product. however, today i found about the EOS lip balm. the packaging is so cute and unique and i read good reviews about it so i am running to the drugstore tomorrow to buy one! we’ll see if this beats my favorite cherry chapstick!

I really don’t know what happen to me πŸ™ there’re a few times I have something that looks like white-ish dead skin cell on the inner part of my lips after a few hours wearing lipstick *I know, it’s disgusting*. I don’t think it’s due to my lipsticks. My lips are always moisturized (EOS and Alba work well for me), I exfoliate regularly, I drink lot of water and eat fruit & vegetable like a good kid. But once in a while that happens.

It’s Vaseline for me all the way! πŸ™‚ During the day I use the tinted (pink) version which is lighter and has a rose scent, it’s so lovely! I used to have dry lips in the winter, but since I started using Vaseline, I’ve not had any dryness. Love it!

I also exfoliate (with Mac Volcanic Ash Exfoliator) about twice a month (when I remember to do my face).

I use a chapstick with Aloe Vera as a base for my lipstick. When my lips are extremely dry and crack-a-lacked (sorry I just had to type it), I apply a thick layer of vaseline and remove it after a minute or three, then apply the ‘base’.
And I also give my lips the occasional break from the lipprods.

I’m pretty lucky to have good lips to start with, they never get chapped, they never crack, they never look bad. All I do is after brushing my teeth in the morning, I put on some Kiehl’s lip balm SPF 15. I don’t wear anything on my lips for the rest of the day. Then, at night, just before going to sleep (and after brushing my teeth) I put on some vaseline.
When it is summer and I decide to lay in the sun and tan (big word for me and my pale skin), I always put on some lip balm with SPF in it (mostly Kiehl’s, but sometimes other brands).

During the Holidays, my lips totally freaked out. One of my friends recommended me to use Burt’s Bees lipstick and I fell in love. Once a week, I exfoliate them with the new Lip Scrubs from Lush (it is my second week I am doing it).

I exfoliate them with Mary Kays Satin Lips and always keep them moisturized. I also sleep with a lip balm on.
