I make my own lip balm it is really easy to do. You can do it in the microwave : ) I could give you some recipe ideas or they are easy to google.

If you are not up for that maybe try a natural brand such as Alba Botanica or Dr. Bronner's. My friend had problems with Burt's Bee giving her some acne around the mouth, lanolin caused it maybe I dunno. Chapstick is usually petroleum and who knows what else. I would ditch it and opt for something with natural oils.

I used to use the Alba kind before they started using beeswax and it was great. However beeswax is not a concern for most people so I say try it. I used to love the coconut one
