carmex has a really bad gooey taste and texture so i prefer vasalineFebruary 2, 2011 2:28 am at 2:28 am #921282
I agree to you struzzle but some say Vaseline is too oily. Your choice.February 2, 2011 2:33 am at 2:33 am #921283showerzingerMember

Btw to the goq there is carmex available now in tubes that can be applied to your lips strait with any amount without touching it. Also to yochie I just spoke to a reliable source involved in kashrus and was told there is no problem with any of these productsFebruary 2, 2011 4:03 am at 4:03 am #921290
Thank you all for your suggestions especially to BTL Angel thank you thank youFebruary 2, 2011 4:33 am at 4:33 am #921291yankdownunderMember
Shea Butter is good for dry skin. This is available in any Natural Food Store. Shea Butter can be applied on dry skin. Good for the hands, lips…February 2, 2011 4:38 am at 4:38 am #921292prudentbystudentMember

There are some foods if eaten that are healing for dry skin-Carrot (good source of Vitamin A); Avocado (Vitamin E); Flax/Linseed Oil; and more.February 2, 2011 10:54 am at 10:54 am #921294600 Kilo BearMember
BS”D Vaseline is more useful than Carmex. If you or any member of your family has a few screws missing, put Vaseline on the screws before installing them to make it easier for them to penetrate even the thickest heads. I have some Vaseline which is sold specifically for this purpose; it is an old tube under the hashgocho of the late unlamented Moshe Hirsch and is “noki mekol chashash timas hatzioinis”. In addition, the pharmacies in the area of Saddle River Road in Monsey report periodic shortages of Vaseline due to bulk purchases made on behalf of the imams of Masjid Itbach al-Yahud at number 104.
Seriously, half of these remedies for dry skin are far less effective than Vaseline. A rov told me not to use my usual urea hand creme during Pesach and to use Vaseline instead. It was far more effective, and I assume it would be for dry lips as well.
And yes, I do keep a tube in my toolbox. As messy as it is, it is easier to control than WD-40 or light machine oil for lubricating screws.January 21, 2013 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #921295hardatworkMember
Just wanted to bring this post back…now, in the depth of winter, what works for you? I find that after a while, I get ‘immune’ to the classic lip balms like carmax and vaseline. Any suggestions?January 21, 2013 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #921296i love coffeParticipant
Would one be allowed to apply chapstick or Carmex on Sahbbat?January 21, 2013 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #921297justwantagoodoyMember
I used to use carmex and found it to be very helpful for chapped lips, but recently i’ve come to realize that it’s not so tznius for girls to apply lip products in public, so lately ive chosen to just let my lips be chapped. it’s hard, but imagine the schar you’ll get for your mesiras nefesh for tznius if you give up chapped stick and vaseline.January 21, 2013 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #921298yehudayonaParticipant

From my post above:

ilovecoff, I take it you asked your question seriously, and are not just looking to play around like some other posters.
As far as I know these products cannot be used on Shabbat. Please find yourself a real life Rav to ask this (and other) question(s). The CR is lots of fun, but while I’m not sure that it’s prohibited to use Chapstick and similar products on Shabbos, I am absolutely positive that it is prohibited to get Halachic guidance from CR posters.
