Just checked, Aquaphor makes a 5 star lip repair, said to be #1 dermatologist recommended.

It's carried in my area by CVS pharmacy, Target and Lucky grocery stores.

Eucerin® Aquaphor Lip Repair Ointment - 0.35 Oz

oooh I need to find those. I only have the larger tube and the big tub of it.

I wonder if the regular Aquaphor is OK to put on your lips. I know I unconsciously lick my lips at times, which means I'm ingesting it.

That's why I want to get the one especially for lips.

Carmex will take the soreness away overnight. Then, I love Dermstore's Lip Quench.

A sugar scrub and Fresh lip balm are what I use at night. Be careful that your lipstick is super emollient!

Are you using a Tarter Control toothpaste? I had the same problem as you and my dentist told me to stop using that toothpaste because some people can get an allergic reaction to the ingredients. I switched to Arm & Hammer toothpaste and my lips no longer crack or peel and the sides of my mouth have healed up also. I also use Nivea lip balm at night.

Something similar happened to me. Now I put the chapstick or Vaseline on right before I brush my teeth. No super whitening or tartar control toothpaste for me anymore!

Fresh Sugar Lip Polish will help with the peeling. Or make your own polish with a little olive oil and sugar (regular granulated or brown).

DH stopped on the way home and got Aquaphor for me.

They didn't have the blue package pictured, but they had the other one for "lip repair & protect":

AQUAPHOR SPF30 LIP REPAIR.35 OZ

It feels nice, I put on too much, it just needs a tiny bit and covers well.
