Moisturises really well, so it's perfect for my chapped and dry lips.
I'm unlean, a libertine.

Something that seems to be helping is Burt Bee's Ultra Moisturizing lip balm and the wearing vaseline over it to help seal the balm and protect lips from the wind. I do this before bed, before showering and in the morning while I'm getting ready. It stays on pretty long if you don't touch your lips.
There was another thread on chapped lips recently, it's a few posts down if you want more suggestions

I'm about 5, maybe almost 6 years, off a round of accutane, and the only side effect I ever had was the really dry lips. As far as what lip balm's i'd reccomend: blistex in the blue tub (the stick from is not the same), and Avene has the most amazing lip blam (but it's white so be careful with heavy application without a mirror if you're out and about). I also enjoy the nivea soothing lip care, it's wonderful.
Be careful with burts bees as the bees wax can actually be drying.

I also second the Avene lip balm as sunbunny said above. I recently bought the Lanolips Lemonaid which is good - (it is an Aussie brand) but you would need to check that you are not allergic to lanolin (sheep oil)

wash face+chest+back with UMF 16+ manuka honey
tone with chamomile lavender tea
home made grey kaolin clay, manuka honey & tea tree oil mask for 30+ minutes
spot treat with 50/50 jojoba and tea tree oil
avoiding dairy, soy, high sodium, refined sugars, processed foods since September 2011. more recently peanuts, gluten and citrus as well.
I am 90-95% clear, and still improving.

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort.
You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it,
and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.

My top 3 are:
1. Blistex MedLip (£2)
Sinks in like a dream, makes your lips tingly, cheap, easy to get hold of & tastes ok
2. Clarins Lip Quench (£17) beautiful lip treatment would be my number 1 but is too expensive & not easy to get hold of!!
3. Blistex Intensive Moisturiser (£3)
