It wasn’t until my second baby that I heard of another use for the fabulous nipple cream. LIP BALM! Lansinoh is now my holy grail lip balm. Since switching too it 2 years ago I have not had chapped lips since. No lie! No chapping, cracking, peeling, nothing! It was a little different to get used to at first as it is quite a thick, tacky texture. I only ever used it at night in the beginning because I wasn’t used to it. The great thing was I would wake up in the middle of the night with the balm still going strong on my lips. I’ve always had dry lips and been a bit of a “lypsylholic” as my friends would call me. It was normal for me to reapply lip balm on my nightly trips to tinkle. There is no longer a need to reapply. It lasts and lasts. I have no issues with the texture anymore either. It softens and melds into your lips and I now carry a little MAC sample pot in my handbag that is filled with Lansinoh Lanolin for during the day if I need it.
