Best lip balm you have used (aside from Chapstick)

What's the best lip balm you've used that wasn't Chapstick? I really like the Burt's Bees pomegranate thing, but I need to put it under something with more wax in it. Thanks!
Big chop: 5/30/10

I like Burts Bees Honey. And good ol Carmex.
hmmmmmmm





so far this, I love lip balms and trying new ones (lip balms = me a product junkie also nail polish haha) but I can't try any or use any of the new ones I bought yet, until my cold sore is officially gone. hahaha. I've been using q-tips to use that one.
Body Shop Hemp lip balm, closely followed by Body Shop Shea Butter lip balm (both in tubes not the lip butter pots).

The Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E ones are ok too but the Hemp one is awesome and the Shea Butter is really good as well.
Ontario, Canada
3a/3b - fine texture/high porosity
CURRENT LINE-UP:
experimenting....
Others: CLU towel, Mebco comb, occasional diffuser
Pharmaceutical grade lanolin. Nothing moisturizes lips (or nips) like lanolin.

RCW - You recommended the Lansinoh brand lanolin on another thread. I absolutely love it. I brought it on vacation to combat the dry air on the airplane as well as from the sun, salt water, and wind. It saved my lips. Thank you!

The other good thing about lanolin is that you use so little that it lasts a very long time. One $10 tube will probably last the rest of your life (provided you don't lose it, of course).
Oooh, I got quite a few tubes of the Lansinoh as gifts after my son was born. There's no way I'm gonna go through all those tubes just on my boobies. I was thinking about using it as lip balm or even as cuticle cream. It's good to know it works for those things too.

Experimenting with BRHG

I love the Burt Bees Pomegrante one too. I like their lip glosses too.

Aquaphor

It comes in little tubes now. It is the only thing that works for me, although I'm thinking of trying RCW's lip/nip recommendation. =)
We use the Lansinoh, too! Especially in the winter...not just on lips, but on dry skin patches, and even inside the nostrils at night.

Burts Bees Pom is a fave, as well as Kiss My Face pineapple coconut lip balm.

I am currently in love with a pot of lip balm I got at my local farmers market. The only ingredients are honey, sweet almond oil, and beeswax.
CG since 04/10 and loving it!

I really like essential wholesale (any of them) or texas naturally supplies (any of them). They are cheap and you can sent and/or flavor them any way you want. I have add a little container of EW vegan lip blam for like 6 months and barely made a dent in it.
Hi Sharon, It's off topic but I wanted to let you know since we both live in Houston that I found a haircare line
that has really helped me with all this humidity we've been experiancing. Seeing how defined your curls are the time we had coffee-you may not need anything new. But
if you do, Ill be happy to tell you more.
I adore lip stuff. My current fav is eco~lips in grape.
