Best lip balm you have used (aside from Chapstick)

Alba Botanica. (I like the Coconut Cream flavor.) Burt's Bees was my favorite until I tried this.

Lansinoh, really? I could barely stand to use it when I was breastfeeding (though it is amazing for sore nipples). It is so sticky!
I adore Rosebud Salve (especially the strawberry flavor). It's ridiculously moisturizing and for me it keeps my lips moisturized much longer than any other lip balm I've used.
Mostly 3C with a dash of 3b and 4A
Low Poo: Elucence Moisture Benefits
Conditioner: Elucence Moisture Balance
Leave-in: Curl Junkie Hibiscus and Banana
Moisturizer: Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream
QB Amla and Olive Heavy Cream

I've been using ChapIce a lot recently. At the Dollar Tree stores around here, you can get a pack of 3 tubes of the stuff for a buck. They also make a really good blue raspberry one that smells like the Icee in that flavor. There is also a more liquid one that's a deep treatment sort of thing and it works nicely for me. More bang for your buck, so to speak.
Mostly 2B with some 2C on a good day, M/Ciii
Shoulder length, and I use permanent hair color.
Started modified CG 6-20-10
Conditioners: Suave Naturals, Garnier Triple Nutrition

Low poo: L'Oreal Everpure
Styling: The Body Shop's Cottonseed Curl Boost, HESMU (winter)
, LALSG and LALCG (summer),
Hair hates: magnesium sulfate (extremely drying!), glycerin in the winter.
I love nivea kiss of moisture and burts bees pomegranate.

Have been looking for the palmers lips balms, but can't find them anywhere
naturally 3b/3c

Buriti lip balm from Amazon Drops. It's organic and fair trade and buriti oil acts as a sunscreen.
I prefer products that I don't have to stick a finger in to use. Jane Iredale Lip Drink is my splurge product; it's very moisturizing.

I am still looking for a great tinted lip balm not in a pot. I've heard Kiehl's has some, but haven't tried them.
Location: Texas
Type: 3b/3c (i), below shoulder length.
CO wash: A-O GPB LYY, Salon Care Honey Almond, Devacurl OC, Acure Argan Stem Cell+Argan Oil, Mill Creek Botanicals Keratin Repair
Leave-ins: BWC, KCKT, cno overnight
Styling: BRHG, MGA Sculpting Gel, A-O Mandarin Magic Gel, LOTD AVG, LALSG
DT: Kiehl's Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Repairative Hair Pak, Curl Junkie Deep Fix, Briogeo Don't Despair Repair!
Arbonne has an awesome lip balm in the Before the Sun line. Truly is awesome and it really works. check it out at www.arbonne.com

Super Lush Lips with Coconut Oil by Perricone

This is the only product that has brought me relief this week. My lips were cracked and bleeding. Product is expensive but the pain relief is worth it. I wish it came in a tube--I'd buy a dozen.

I wonder how well the Yankee Candle lip balms work. They might just be for scent and flavor.
No MAS.

Phoenix, actually the YC ones aren't bad. I have one that's (I believe) Birthday Cake and it's actually decently moisturizing. The only downside is that the tube is fatter than most because of the cute jar candle packaging which means I always manage to get it outside of my lipline, which leads to tiny blackheads and zits around my mouth that HURT.

Good god that was long. Anyways, I don't use it too often because of that, but it IS pretty moisturizing.

ETA: I lied. It's Vanilla Cupcake.

I just got turned on to this:

Lots of drugstores carry it, but you have to order online to get the SPF ones.

The Vanilla one is also nice if you're a vanilla fan. The only one I didn't like was the Raspberry Pomegrante. It felt the same; I just wasn't a fan of the scent

Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
Just ordered this when I was trying their rosacea cream: http://www.purpleemu.com/store/lipbalm.html Didn't notice the petroleum when I went on line. Despite that, I REALLY like it. So far, I like the skin care products, too.

I have used possibly every lip product under the sun, from Neosporin, Blistex, Nivea,....you name it. I recently saw a commercial for Carmex moisture plus lip balm. I suffered from peeling lips since November and this stuff cleared it right up. It also comes in a tint my favorite of which is the peach color. You can find it at any drugstore or Walmart.

Carmex and Channel lip gloss. I use carmex when I am outside running, walking the dogs etc. Channel I use for everything else. It is pricey but it seems to last awhile. It is the only lip gloss I have owned that looks great while keeping my lips moisturized and conditioned.

Another vote for Palmer's cocoa butter formula lip balm. I buy it by the dozen on amazon.
