Hi

I posted a while back for any tips on how to ween myself off lipbalm. I was applying it all the time, my lips felt dry and sore without it and when I had to fly for 8 hours without lipbalm because it wasn't allowed on the plane recently I nearly went cold turkey!

Someone suggested trying a balm without mineral oil or petroleum and that is what I did, now I've got over it, I don't need it all the time. I tried the Ren Monoi lip balm which was a bit too glossy but now I've got Joh Masters Lipcalm, which is lovely. It's very moisturising, smells faintly of beeswax but has no taste.

I will never use a lipbalm with mineral oil in again.

How much is it per tube? I want to try a diff lip balm but I'm allergic to everything except Vaseline Intensive Therapy lip balm, which sucks. My bf must be addicted to lip balm, too. I see him apply it all the time. I usually apply it once in the AM and once in the PM.

My lips get the dry withdrawal syndrome without lipbalm too! I'm starting to think that mineral oil dries out my lips. Thanks for the JM recommendation.

I'm convinced it's the mineral oil and petroleum that can make you addicted. Maybe it gets rid of the natural oils in your lips. I think if you use anything just make sure it's not got these ingredients in. The John Masters lipbalm is on EDS. I think it was the Ren lip balm that got rid of my addiction.

Interesting, I should give it a try when I run out of my current lip balm. I am very addicted to lip balm....I have no idea how many times I apply it a day Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the reveiw. I was curious about that lip balm. Right now my top favs are Weleda's Everon Lip Balm and Dr Haushka's lip care stick. I only use them as a treatment when my lips feel dry and they have never caused me to feel like I "needed" to use them consistently.

I'm a recent convert to l'occitane pure shea butter. It was a gift and once it runs out I will probably buy cheaper DIY shea butter in bulk. I can really feel the difference -- I only put it on 3-4 times a day whereas I could use a waxier balm every 3 seconds.

I have that balm in my cart but haven't ordered it yet. I'm not addicted to lip balm, but I am addicted to purchasing it.

Isnt it such a relief not to need lip balm, sarah?Very Happy

I've lost my addiction since I started using lipfusionX at night.

A great bonus I didnt expect.

YES! Weird isn't it. I only apply the JM 2-3 times a day now, whereas the previous mineral oil balms I was applying all the time throughout the day and evening.

It tastes slightly like parfum.. I think because of the essential oils. It smells really good though. Smells like sweet orange, and when it goes on your lips, it's sort of shiny. It's not like a regular chapstik. I wouldly highly recommend this though. Surprised
