    I need a new lip balm, my carmex just finished but I'm not sure if I want to get it again as I feel like it's all that moisturizing and I find it tends to leave residue on my lips Any suggestions?

    I've tried quite a few, but dont think I've found a perfect one. I like the original carmex...but when it finished i bought the cherry one...they dont feel the same :/ I use the one in a little tub..and dont like using my fingers to apply everytime.

    I mostly use

    This smells like tooth paste, which i dont lie...but it does moisterise your lips really well



    On the look out for something better..so will be watching this thread

    P.S. I really dislike palmer's lip balm..it irritates my lips.
    I've tires this one too..and didnt like it..pobbaly because the cream above is better.

    This one (it also comes in a tube):



    I had a hard time finding a good lip balm, they'd work for a while and then eventually start drying out my lips! Blistex really works Love it. I have sexy lips now.

    I like Kiehl's and Dr.Hauschka, or I have a pack of 5 Agatha Ruiz de la Prada ones that work wonders which I bought on holiday a couple of years ago - I have all of these except the kiwi one and they are a-m-a-z-i-n-g, the colours are really nice too:

    I really like the original Burt's Bees one (it's got peppermint in it and makes your lips tingle) or Palmer's Cocoa Butter ('cos it smells sooo good and makes your lips really soft).

    I've always loved Chapstick...plus, Carmex Strawberry is far better than the Cherry one but I'm dying to try the mint flavoured one. But if I'm feeling luxurious then I'll go for Creme de la Mer's The Lipbalm.

    Oooh, yeah and has anyone else tried Softlips vanilla lipbalm? It tastes and smells like Bird's Custard!!!

    I never really have cracked or dry lips...but I sometimes put some of Yves Rocher 'baume hydratant' on because I like the flavour, it's meant to be grape!
    And only about £2ish?
    Don't think there's a world of difference between different products like these...the base root of it is not enough vitamins or harsh weather or something. The best a balm can do is make them better a bit and they all do that pretty much in the same way.
