Please recommend something otc besides carmex as it makes my lips burn. Which burts bees has the best tint as well.. I like to wear that with lip liner instead of lipstick. Also, what are your ideas for a lasting and hydrating hand lotion-cream? My hands are parched as well! Thanks ladies! :))

I sort of like the Burt's Bees lip tints, but be careful. They made my mom's lips swell to a very unattractive huge. I noticed in an internet search that other's had also experienced this. As far as hand creme.....Mario Badescu- you get a huge tube for cheap and you want to use it over your whole body. Has made a big difference in my hands. Evidently it is a fav of Martha Steward

try Aquaphor from the d/s-had to use this w/chemo and it hydrates better than Vaseline.

Could there be an allergic reaction to one or more of the ingredients in Burt's Bees? There is beeswax. Perhaps something in that or the menthol caused irritation. All the lip plumping products have an irritant in them to make the lips swell. Wonder what this irritation does to your lips over time. Hope this helps.
