I love Lucas Paw Paw ointment.

I am really loving City Lips plumper as a balm - my lips are so soft. Much different to the wizened things they became after using lipfusion.

somewhere in this formum I think I said that Carmex was my one and only. Oh well, I should have known better. I have fallen in love with the CO Bigelow line at Bath & Body works. These balms are great and have very gentle flavors. The tubes are nice too. My favorite is called "MY FAVORITE LIP BALM" Laughing

I like Jurlique and Kiehl's, probably Jurlique slightly better.

Prada no 5 I love for day wear!

I have just ordered a pot of Eve Lom Kiss Mix, hopefully I will like that as well!

I do not like Lush lip lime, that one feels good going on but dried the heck out of my lips.

That happened to me with Perricone's lip stuff -- it took me two weeks to get them back in shape after only 3 applications of the Perricone!

ooo I loathe all things Perricone!!! Such a ripoff! Yes that Perricone lip stuff is rotten, I had forgotten about it... maybe I blocked it out of my memory because it was so bad Smile

I've never bought Perricone stuff because it seemed overpriced...and now I'm sure I never will! Laughing What does this stuff DO to your lips?? I've heard of products being not-very-moisturizing but it sounds like this stuff turns your lips to sandpaper! Shock

I just discovered a new lipbalm the other day--Chicken Poop.

It contains soybean oil, beeswax, jojoba oil and lavender and sweet orange essential oils (no chicken poop, of course). It has a nice, smooth, slick texture (slicker than my HG Prada balms, but still not greasy or bad) and the most heavenly scent. It leaves my lips feeling really silky-smooth. Plus, it's super-cheap and available at most drugstores.


Never heard of it -- where are you located? Could it be you've found a product that can't be gotten in America, instead of the other way around?! I thought I was familar with every 'drugstore' lip balm brand available....


Maybe it's not available in every drugstore. I'm in Connecticut and I've only see it at Walgreens so far, but there have been a few reviews about it on MUA for awhile (I remembered the reviews, which is why I even tried this stuff!). I moved here recently and didn't ever see Chicken Poop in any of the Philly drugstores. But maybe Walgreens just started stocking this item? You know how they're always changing their stock around...

Just about!...I don't know what was in it, I tried it before I cared about such things (around the time I first joined EDS) -- I went in to Sephora to get the Decleor Aromessence Lip Balm (based on Mabsy's rec) and they didn't have it and the SA talked me into buying the Perricone. I applied some the minute I left the store and get in my car...I drove down the road to the post office to mail a package and by the time I got back in the car, my lips started feeling really chapped. Stupidly, I applied more Perricone and drove down the road again to take care of more business, lips felt even more chapped and I applied still more. By the time I got back to my car – approx 2 hours after buying the damn stuff – my lips felt like the Sahara Desert and I finally realized that the Perricone was to blame. I turned the car around right then and there are drove 20 minutes back to Sephora to return it and get my money back. From that day forward, I never ever allowed any SA to talk me into buying any product other than what I went in the store for. These days, if a SA makes any sort of recommendation to me, I just smile politely and continue about my business because I figure by now I know more than they do and they should be asking ME for recommendations!

Actually, you have no idea how hard it is for me when I walk into Sephora and see them trying the soft sale/hard sale technique on some poor sap for something like GoSmile or LipFusion – I just want to take the poor sucker aside and tell them about the Auro ear drops and/or HA pills so they can save their money. It was ESPECIALLY hard the day I was in Sephora and they had a GoSmile rep in there doing in-store demos – I literally had to bite my tongue to keep from butting in! Bad Grin Come to think of it, maybe Sephora doesn’t WANT me to be one of their “In” girls because I'd probably end up COSTING them business....

Aaack! This stuff sounds hideous! Good thing you got your money back, as I'm sure it cost an arm and a leg just because it had the Perricone name on it!

I still think you should be an In Girl! I mean, they say they want people who can "sound off on all things beauty"...and with your product knowledge and propensity for straight-shooting when it comes to reviews, you're a perfect fit!

I have to say Pure vitamin E (15,000 to 20,000 IU). Very hydrating. Just love it. It's my HG lip treatment.

Hi, I bought the I love chicken Poop lip balm at Walgreens here in the Houston area and really love it. I use it during the daytime and use my heavy duty emu oil balm at night. The chicken poop lady has a web site and is developing other products and she also explains the chiken poop name, pretty funny. Laughing

Will this really help with dry cracked lips? My lips seem to get "worse" when I use anything on them. Winter is the worst.

BTW- is "Chicken Poop" for real? Yuck! Laughing

TIA!

chellsta, There isn't chicken poop in the lip balm, for heaven's sake. That's just what she named it because if I remember right, it has to do with an experience with her grandfather on the farm when she was a kid. Anyway, the lip balm is great!! Laughing

Sorta like the "Boudreux's (sp?) Butt Paste" for diaper rash -- you gotta admit that "Chicken Poop" isn't a name you're likely to forget!

I’m actually quite impressed by the ingredients list for this Chicken Poop, to wit:

Soy, Jojoba, Sweet Orange, Lavender, Bees Wax

I still think my own homemade lip balm is better simply because I have even more natural ingredients that are going to penetrate and heal from the inside out, but I *am* impressed that Chicken Poop doesn’t contain any of the ingredients that actually CAUSE dryness – as is the case with A LOT of so-called “wonder” lip products out there – which in turn kick off a cycle of abuse (i.e.: the lip balm makes your lips feel dry so you apply more of it, which makes them feel even dryer, so you apply still more, and so it goes).

If I wasn’t in the lip balm business myself, I’d definitely buy Chicken Poop....

I saw the Butt Paste in CVS yesterday for the first time, and I almost passed out from laughing! I love funnily-named products.

While I was in CVS, I picked up some Blistex Herbal Answer lip balm, and I LOVE it!! Very Happy

Carekate, I posted a review on your Lush Lips in Dolce Vita. A HUGE thanks for the sample - I totally adore it.

I love how it moisturizes and softens my lips but also adds a hint of color and smells and tastes great!

Most colors turn pink on my lips but dolce vita stayed a very sheer red that enhanced my natural color.

the texture is great too. Not as waxy as my Burt's Bees but more 'balmy' than lip gloss.

I've been using Chicken Poop, and I really like it. lol. The Chicken Poop story is something like she licked her lips a lot as a child and her grandfather told her if she kept it up he'd put chicken poop on them.

Ewww!

At first the lavendery smell of it made my nose crinkle up, but now I guess I'm used to it because it doesn't bother me. It's natural -- just oils and beeswax, and it works. Feels slick putting it on. Runs about $2.50.

YSL lip balm is lovely but very expensive. Smile Another choice will be Vasaline Aloe one.
