Rated 1 out of 5Â by 20yrOriginsFan Did not Remedy
I've always had dry cracked lips - I know I don't drink enough water! I tried this Lip Remedy for the first time during my in-store mini-facial. My lips were a little dry, and the sales lady recommended it....immediately my lips were soothed and moist!! I loved it, had to have it! I used it before bed for the next 2 weeks, and sometimes in the morning too....and like prior reviewers mentioned, my lips actually ended up worse!! By the end of the first week and on into the 2nd week, my lips formed large thick peels of skin. It was like callouses peeling off - then my lips were raw and a bit bloody. I stopped using Lip Remedy and used a different balm and within 2 days my lips were soft again.
What happened!!?? Is this like a detox cleansing purge for lips? It gets much worse before it gets better? I decided it was not worth the money it cost me for this result. I returned it but did exchange it for another tube of Liquid Lip Color. This has helped heal my lips and kept them from become dry again.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by evangelist Dehydrating ingredients :(
I wanted to like this product, because a) I am an Origins evangelist and own probably 30 different products and b) because of the texture and feel of this balm (especially great under lipstick). At first I loved it, but it wasn't making any difference at all in my chapped and peeling lips. I did a little research, and I found several reputable websites saying that both camphor and menthol, ingredients in this product, are drying agents and although they feel soothing to chapped lips, they tend to dehydrate at the same time. So don't make your lips worse! Use a product with no camphor or menthol!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PattyC Works well on chapped hands
I don't really like this for my lips, but I discovered it works great on dry hands. Last winter I was on a plane, had forgotten hand lotion, was desperate, so I put a tiny bit of this on my hands, and I loved the effect. It might seem expensive for this, but I found a tiny bit goes a long way.

My lips were always dry and need some attention ASAP so I turned to this but as hopeful as I was when I got it it smoothed my lips but after about 5 minutes it just became even more dryer this is NOT LONG LASTING!!!!!
