This past summer, something strange had happened (with my overly sensitive skin) to my lips. Out of nowhere they broke out in somewhat of a heat rash that soon turned into gross blisters. My Dr. tested me for the herpes virus that causes cold sores on the lips; it came back negative. I had never had a cold sore in my life. He then tested me for impetigo. Also negative. He then thought I was experiencing an allergic reaction to something. At this point, I wanted a new doctor. He hadn't a clue what was wrong.
It seemed whenever I used products with petroleum or sunscreen in them on my lips, the sores would come back. I stopped using lip gloss, chapstick and anything else of the petroleum substance and my lips finally healed. I had to put something on my lips though; they were very dry and it hurt to smile.
I didn't dare use anything with pertroleum in it though!
Coconut oil got me through the summer, but as it grew cooler I needed something heavier & more moisturizing.
In comes Eos...Petroleum and sunscreen free, and pretty egg-shaped packaging to boot! Though it's not as moisturizing as I'd like, it glides on smooth making my lips feel nice & soft, tastes great, and is much, much safer.
Sigh...I do miss lipgloss though:(
