      Hi Ieda

      I never thought about Olive Oil or even butter… except with bread :)

      Hi Lynn

      I find that the Vitamin E oil works better for me but Vaseline is less goopy :) Both are equally good

    Thanks for the tips PB!

    Oh btw, I was looking for reviews of lip liners on MWS till I noticed there weren’t any! Are there any that you can recommend?

      Hi Hasegawa

      The reason there aren’t any reviews is because I don’t use lip liners :) Sorry I can’t help!

    Use a toothbrush to lightly brush over lips to slough off dead skin cells and flakiness, do this while brushing your teeth when lips are wet and supple. Lips will look pink, plum and fresh! Don’t forget to apply balm right after that.

      Hiya Shorty

      Ooh great tip! I sometimes use my electric toothbrush! :D

    Every morning before I apply lipsticks, I will use Vaseline as the based. The lispticks really glide on so smoothly. Thanks for the tips on using honey mixed with sugar to exfoliate, I really need this done!

      Hi Sylvia

      That’s a good tip too to use a base. Sometimes it makes it too slippery though so it depends on the type of lipstick.

    Thanks for the tips!
    My mum teach me to apply honey on lips before sleep.. but i never did it because I’m afraid of ants crawling on my lips when I sleep..=p
    I do apply Vaseline before sleep sometimes~

      Hi Jean

      Honey overnight? Hmm… I’d be scared of ants too ;) But maybe honey in the day … in which case I’d be licking my lips all day long! hehe…

    Rosebud Salve has been the lipbalm I was looking for all my life for my dry, cracked lips. Seriously – I will never use anything else again! :)

      Hi Renee

      YES! I love Rosebud Salve too – I was given a sample once. Need to find it again. Do they have it in Singapore?

        Yes. They have it in Sephora in Sg. But its S$14 per tin.

        I bought 1 in Taiwan for less than S$10.

        Hi Shay

        Ah… since I’m not going to Taiwan, I’ll have to look for it in Singapore! Thanks for the heads up!

        I didn’t use it as frequent as I should because its in a tin and makes my finger sticky.

        Sometimes after I rub the salve on my lips, I’ll just use the remaining on my fingers to rub my nails. haha…I have no idea why I do that.

        Hey Shay

        I sometimes rub remnant vit e oil on my elbows – softens up the hard skin ;)

      Hi Corrine

      I haven’t tried the baby lipbalm but I’ve used the Kiehl’s #1 lipbalm which didn’t really work for me. Thanks for your input!

    Eating a green apple always seems to leave my lips soft and hydrated – I still can’t figure out why! But I do apply lip balm after and the effect lasts for hours. :D

      Hi Mey

      It must be the acid in the apple and that’s very healthy too! I should try it ;)

      Hi Prettybeautiful

      You know… I’ve never used a dedicated lip scrub before. Sounds nice!

    2. Do not bite or lick your lips

    I try to tell myself that everyday!
    though I’ve been religious with lip balms, I sometimes get allergic reactions to them so the softness of my lips is not constant! well, it’s my fault for liking to experiment with different brands. Recently I’ve been using Origins Perfect World Eye Serum at night on my lips and I love it! It does more for my lips than for my eyes :-/

      Hi Connie

      You and me both. I try to remember my own tips but I don’t always stick to them :P I don’t use lip balm religiously – its just not my thing so I prefer something that lasts. I find Vaseline does the job for me which means SUPER CHEAP! :D

      Hey Jojoba

      Me too! I still use it now and then for the face but I use it every night for my lips and I love how they look in the morning.

    Thanks for the tips Paris!! :D

    Thankfully my lips are not the chappy kind, so i can get by with just normal lipbalm during bedtime and still wake up with soft lips! :D

      Hi Jenn

      Ooh lucky you! :) I don’t get chappy too but I like the overnight treatment :D

    none of the people here knows the secret to soft lips.all are giving tips like lip balm,vaseline,baby oil,olive oil,honey etc! all these things only make ur lips feels tight and feelings waxy and it doesnt really helps severe chap lips as far as i concern. i found a way to cure severely chapped and dry lips,and it makes my lips soft and moist in an instant.i ditch all my lipbalm after i found this secret.kiehls #1 lipbalm is a hoax! maybe it suits those western people live in cold /windy weather,but not in scorching hot weather like malaysia. it doesnt really helps dry lips,its waxy and will dry after some time. believe me dont waste ur money buy expensive lip balm/oil,butter wax,petroleum jelly whatsoever. dont u feels ur lips “ketat” after applying all those? the secret to treat dry lips and make it soft to the touch is “water”? what kind of water and how to put water on ur lips?i let u to guess…..

    I love Vaseline Lip Essence Advanced. I use it everyday and also under my lipgloss/lipstick. Since they’re not available here, my mom sent me 4 of them in mail *lol* Now I’ve the supply till the next time I go home.

    Hi Paris B. Seems like you’ve done some pretty thorough research on how to keep lips feeling and looking smoother. I was wondering if you’ve tried Mary Kay’s Satin Lips treatment. It is a two step process – a lip mask and then a lip balm. I’d really like to know your thoughts if any. Thanks!

      Hi Carol

      I haven’t tried anything by Mary Kay so I can’t quite help you there, sorry! If I do try, I’ll be sure to write about it :)

    do we need to use lip makeup remover to remove tinted lip balm?

    • Paris B

      If it is very strong and leaves a stain on your lips, yes.
