I use a tiny dab of Neutrogena Hand Cream for my lips. It works REALLY well if they are very cracked & dry

Sorry it took me so long to respond, but Neiman Marcus sells Prada lip balms. SAD thing is that they no longer make the CLEAR kind. Only tinted. Number 7 is my favorite, which is a pale pink.

I LOVE the Prada lip balms! I have the soft pink and red ones.
The tubes are so cute... and I can leave them anywhere (purse, coat pockets) because there are so many in one box!

So I just checked Neiman Marcus and they DO have the clear Prada balms back in stock. It's been forever, so yeah, check them out!

^ wow is that good? it looks so yummy, i always wanted to try it when i saw it in shops, but i ended up getting other lipbalms.

My lips do get really dry, and I've tried soooo many lipbalms. Caudalie Lip conditioner has good reviews but I found it made my lips drier after awhile, although it gave them a nice, healthy sheen for about half an hour. I've also used Burt's Bees, which I found too waxy and not really moisturing, just cooling. Palmer's cocoa butter is nice, it has spf 20 as well, but it goes off quickly and the packaging is not nice as the lipstick came out and i had to put it back inside... I've also tried Balmbalm tee tree (had rose at first, but I couldn't stand the taste of rose, so gave it to my sister, don't know if she uses it, because she found it too grainy), I loved the smell and the taste of tea tree and although it moisturises well for about an hour, it also rubs off easily, is not absorbed well and makes them drier afterwards. I recently bought Blistex MedPlus, and it looks and smells quite medicinal, but so far I thought it was the best for cracked lips, we'll see how it goes in the long run.

Has anyone tried the Neutrogena spf 20 one?

I use Nanak's Lip Smoothie which is $2 at the grocery story. It's really effective, no mineral oil or anything and it has SPF 10. The coconut one smells amazing.

Prada is great too, it's much more matte once it absorbs and it's tinted. However it is kind of expensive. Not as expensive as it seems since only a tiny bit is needed for an application, but still not as cheap as a big $2 tube.

Yes, Prada comes in a pack of 8. Each thing is called a "monodose" but you get A LOT of uses out of them - 2 weeks worth at least in each tube, IME! Well worth the price.

Lip conditioning is important because I have big lips (my best feature along with my legs) so I've tried a lot of products and agree that Rosebud Salve is fantastic (If I want "natural" I just wear this, it lends a soft, pink colour that's really nice). However, I use Nivea hand cream that you buy in tiny round tins and I put that on my lips before bed...

I can't stand glossy lip shades and always wear matte which can dry out lips pretty quickly so I know and if dry, cracked, or chapped lips are problems for any of you just use Nivea creme!
