Hello all, I found this review for Vaseline lip therapy. It has only 1 mildly comedogenic ingredient : petrolatum 😯
Ingredient list: octyldodecanol, carylic triglyceride, c10-18 triglycerides, peg-8 beeswax, polyethylene, cera alba, euphorbia cerifera cera, ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Petrolatum, Glycerin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aroma, linalool, cl 15850,cl 77491, cl 77492, cl 77499
What do you guys think?? It’s worth a try??
Hiya @shweta188, @bargavi-ramachandran, @catonthewall, it is nearly impossible to find a non-comedogenic lip balm. The safety of a lip balm for acne prone skin can be decided from seeing how much it travels or slips outside the lip line. Oilier, shiny, glossy ones tend to shift and spread easily and that is the main reason why people see breakouts around the mouth when they use certain lip balms. Even with the same ingredients, some lip balms like Lotus and a few others tend to stay put on the lips, so they are considered safer.
Hey pam..every winter i buy atleast one tube of vaseline lip therapy..i dont know why coz i dont use it…it just lies in my shelf for sometime and then goes into dust bin,unused…reason being…i cant bear its stong smell which lingers for quiet long and then the waxy look it gives…also read recently in one of the blogs online that it darkens ur lips 🙁 so my this yr purchase of lip therapy too went into a dust bin and now i will never dare buy it again 🙂
Hey what Himalaya moisturizing lip butter or natural sun protection lip balm? has anyone tried that?
@shweta188 … yikes that’s a really bad history with vaseline 😐
@bargavi-ramachandran … no clue. I’ve been using lotus from pretty long.
I have tried so many…but always came back to my fav baby lips..although i have stopped using it after joining AM and have recently switched to lotus lip therapy as its considered safe for acne prone people…but i am on look out for a better option.
Bargavi…i have used himalaya lip balm…the one with wheatgerm and carrot seed oil,both of which are highly comedogenic..so i have dumped it too.
Omg!! I was using maybelline baby lips too @shweta188 before acnemantra. I’m soo tempted to by one everytime I see it. But I keep reminding myself of the blackheads I got then. Which is also the reason I was checking the ingredients of lip balms 😀
Hey guys, I have this vaseline lip therapy product right now. Its not moisturizing enough. So is lotus cherry lip balm.
Actually babylips has heightened our expectations I guess. Even I feel like using it again, but it gave me lip corner bumps 🙁
Some of my cousins use home made lip balm.
it has beeswax(some people use honey), coconut oil or almond oil and vitamin-e capsules.it’s working great for them.
a friend of mine looking at the himalaya natural lip butter, she bought some cocoa butter and sal butter herself, mixed them together and now uses it as her home-made lip balm.
Oh so baby lips is a hit in lip balms 🙂 i so get tempted to use it but i cant as i keep getting ungly pimples on my chin,so i am better off them 🙁 and i completely agree…lotus lip therapy does not even come close to baby lips..it was so hydrating and moisturizing.
@bargavi are the people using the home made lip balms acne prone and are they getting pimples?
Yes Shweta, very much missing babylips 🙁 And my lips are tanned too 🙁
Hi @catonthewall.i am thinking about trying the first recipe without coconut oil.both beeswax and almond oil re only moderately comedogenic.if we are following a strong regimen it wouldn’t bother right?
and vitamin-e capsule, so far no one has complained about it.infact my sister has punctured evion 400 capsules and used it on her pregnancy stretch marks.it would do only good for your skin.
I think it should be ok for APST1/2. But not if we are APST 3 I guess. But again Lotus lip balms also have shea butter cocoa butters. They are not giving breakouts.
But just to be on the safer side, I will probably stick with only vitamin-e may be. Now time to search for DIY recipes.
Just remembering those days when I used to even apply coconut oil and move on..
Ok tell me how it goes @catonthewall.for now i just bought some grade A honey and i am thinking about using just that as a lip moisturiser.
Now I see why Lotus is noncomedogenic and why it is not moisturizing 🙄
Hiya @catonthewall Lotus lip balm isn’t comedogenic, but it is just that it doesn’t slip or travel much outside the lips on to the surrounding skin. 🙂
@catonthewall very well said,i agree and understand now why lotus is considered non comedogenic and why it is not moisturizing 🙂 but we apst 3 people can not afford to take risk with even a lip balm 🙁
Hi @catonthewall @padm1n1 @shweta188 i bought himalaya natural intensive balm lip with winter cherry and apple seed a week back.the only thing it does good is moisturise our lips.it gives a tad shiny effect but no tinted look.the ingredients sound comedogenic but so far i got no pimples cos of it.
plus currently i am on a new regimen packed with benzoeyl peroxide, salicylic acid, clindamycin and nicotinamide, suggested by my derma.
