the only lip balm that worked for me...

Recommended Posts

as im sure everyone who takes accutane realises it dries your lips out alot! well i finished my course about 3 months ago and am 95% clear and very happy with the results up to now... anyway just thought id share with you the best product i found for my lips...

it was a hemp lip balm from the body shop. i live in the uk but am sure you can get it mail ordered elsewhere, it was a million times more effective than anything else i tried and once i started using it my lips wer not a problem anymore. generally only had to re-apply a few times a day whereas with others i was basically eating them! hope this helps some people out and good luck with the treatment!

ye they stil sell it. i went through a stick every 2 weeks or so whereas with other ones it was about one every few days! only really have to re apply it every few hours aswell! other products i used and really found to help wer cetaphil face wash and cyclax vitamin e moisuriser

the moisturiser is really cheap so i was never bothered about putting loads on. dont get me wrong i still got rashes and dry with it but of the few i tried out it felt the least greasy and really seemed to help my skin.

hope the treatment goes well, ther wer times i felt shit and i only really started to fully clear up about a month after finishing the treatment but now im really happy with how it went! all those products might not be exactly what suit you but the lip balm will defo be the best you try;)

Did the hemp lip balm break you out? It has coconut oil in it, which is comedogenic...I didn't see this on the ingredient label until I bought some yesterday. If it didn't break you all out, then I'll continue to use it....
