Hi, I have just started on roaccutane ( same thing different country)
I have never tried aquaphor, as you can't get in australia.
But here is what i use and noooo cracking lips, But still dry.
Burts bee's wax. Bonnie Bell lip therapy ( red tube)
Carmex, can get it at any pharmacy.
Cocoa butter chap stick and also I Have started to make my own. As most of these only last a little while and I find myself applying it every 10 minutes and using so much, I'll give you the ingredients for the lip balm I make and hopefully you can try it.
1 teaspoon of olive oil or better yet joboba Oil.
1 teaspoon of cocoa butter or any body butter that has an oil base
2 teaspoon of soy wax, ( sounds wierd I know, but has the staying power and will last for an hour on your lips and make them feels so smooth and refreshed and not dry, completely vegan and natural)
1/2 teaspoon of vaseline
The put all this in a little glass bowl or jug and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir with a spoon. Not wood or plastic,
heat again for 30 seconds and it should be all melted. ( if not 20 sec bursts until it is)
add some natural flavoured peppermint oil or choclate essence, one or two drops is more than enough and stir, stir and more stiring,
Then put into an old tin (lip balm tin) or chap stick tube and seal with the lid.
Wrap it in cling wrap and put it in the fridge for 4 hours. ( cling wrap is if it leaks or spills, you will find it difficult to clean up)
Hope this helps and your lips get much better!
