I have recently had what I believe to be an allergic reaction on my lips. I have been dealing with it now on and off for a month, and had a similar thing happen in 2016 that lasted for around 8 months. It was triggered by a Burts Bees Lip balm that I had been using for years and then one day I put it on and the burning was instant. From that moment on, I had burning, tight, weeping, seeping lips. Everything I could buy at a drug store was making my lips worse after that. Every lipstick I had been using for years was just making things worse. I saw a doctor who without tests said I had shingles and then prescribed me antibiotics!
I found the Zi Zai Dermatology blog back in 2016 and remembered it over this past month and ordered some products. While I believe I have a beeswax allergy, I am still not quite sure. But, this salve is the only thing that has given me any relief (including seeing two different doctors in the last month that prescribed me steroids and antibiotics). It is easier to apply on irritated, raw weeping lips than the balms (love those too when my lips are not as irritated). Lips seem to take a long time to heal, and while I am not completely better yet, I am not getting worse and seem to be on the mend.
The salve comes in a little jar and you use your fingers to put it on. I rub a bit in between my fingers to make it go on smoothly. It instantly took some of the sting out and has some staying power even when your lips are weeping. My corners also have cracked and this helps to soothe them.
I hope to figure out exactly what is the cause of my lip reaction, but in the meantime, I am so glad to have found these products. The research I have been doing also has opened my eyes to all the chemicals and unnecessary things in makeup and skincare products. While this experience has been painful and frustrating, I am happy to have found some products that are natural and not full of chemicals.
This lip salve is amazing! Adds just the right amount of shine to make it look like I have gloss on and it moisturizes my lips like no other lip product has been able to do. No stickiness or weird taste either. I hope this product is always available!!
