Best moisturisers and lip balms in UK...?

Recommended Posts

I have just started a course of isotretonoin and am bracing myself for the dry lips and skin. I hear a lot of people here talking about aquaphor and dr dan's lip balm as being miracle workers.

I assume these are not available in the UK? Does anyone have any suggestions on the best and most effective remedies for dry skin and lips for someone in the UK, so basically anything i could pick up in Boots!?

Any advice welcome as i know how bad the dryness can get and i really want to use the best stuff i can to make it easier to take. Price is not an issue!

Cheers. :dance:

Try "lucas's papaw ointment", i'm from aus but have freinds who have found it in the UK. It comes in a red tube or tub and is magic on your lips or any dry chaffed skin. if you can't find lucas try for any paw paw slalve product, it's good stuff!.(and not expensive)... good luck with your treatment. x

You need to use something gentle on your skin. I use Simple Light Hydrating moisturiser in the day and their Rich Replenising Moistuiser at night time. On my body I use E45 lotion (not the cream). For my lips I use Carmex (it comes in a yellow pot) and it's brill!
