Lip Balm with Hydrocortisone
My dermatologist recommends hydrocortisone in lip balm for chronic dry lips. This is a well priced, nice option.
Its okay, but there are better alternatives...
I initially tried this lip balm because of the good reviews. I have come to realize that the majority of the positive reviews must be because people think that there are no other options. After I first used it and found that it was greasy and messy, I looked at the ingredients and realized why. It is mostly made of petrolatum and mineral oil. I then tried to figure out why it smelled so strange - not necessarily a terrible smell, just strange. The only other ingredient is beeswax, so I cant figure out why it smells the way it does. Despite the fact that the packaging says "the only lip balm with 1% hydrocortisone," I decided to do a quick Google search anyway. It turns out that there are actually 2 other lip balms that I could find with 1% hydrocortisone, so I dont know what is with their packaging. One of the products is called Lipster Medicated lip balm and the other is FixMySkin healing lip balm. I have now tried both of these products and they both smell really good and arent greasy like Cortibalm. Lipster is the one I prefer because of the ingredients and price. I also get better results from it. I just thought I would let everyone know just in case there are others that feel like me and think that Cortibalm is the only solution.
WORKS FOR ME!
I do not want waxy. I do not want a product with a taste. I do not want super shine. This product is it! Only takes a few swipes and my chapped lips are history. It may seem a little pricey - but worth every penny.
Dr. Dans Cortiballm Lip Balm
Lips have major damage due sun here in AZ. Products works great and has helped repair some of the damage.
I'm on Accutane and this lip balm was recommended by my dermatologist. It is a godsend!! My lips are not flaky and are are so much more hydrated compared to other lip balms/chapsticks. If you have severely chapped/dry lips or are on Accutane, I HIGHLY recommend this. It stops needless suffering.
Good but not Great
This product does well as an overnight protectant, but during the day it wears off too soon. It also has an "ash tray"-like aroma to it that isn't pleasant during the day, tolerable at night as you are sleeping.
Great for chapped lips
This lip balm is great-I also bought some for my teenage son.
Great for chapped lips due to medication
This lipbalm has helped a lot with my chapped lips from Accutane. It is the only product I have found to work well.
I am on accutane and this lip balm really helps keep my chapped lips under control. I recommend this product to anyone, not just accutane users!
My derm recommended this lip balm - I'm currently on Accutane. It's the best of all that I've tried. Very soothing.
