Palmer’s Lip Balm made my lips itchy !!!

I have been on the quest for the perfect lip balm for a very long time now and very recently I came across The Palmer’s Lip Balm – Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E (Dark Chocolate & mint Flavor) and I thought my prayers had been answered, but it turns out I am back on the lip balm hunt yet again.

I’ve been using it for the past 15 to 20 days , and immediately after the application , the corners of my lips start feeling terribly itchy. I kept dismissing the itch thinking it’ll get better as I get used to it . But it only kept getting worse probably because there’s some ingredient which is in there, that my skin is not able to tolerate at all.

However, I have had an acquaintance say to me that this balm makes her lips very supple and soft, but , unfortunately it doesn’t work for me, and with a heavy heart I have decided to scrap it.

Of course I decided to do some google research and find out why exactly it didn’t work for me.

So I found these two articles on this subject and both of these contain lists of ingredients in a lip balm that may cause irritation or allergies. So here we go,

And from both these articles , I’ve derived the below ingredients which are present in the Palmers lip balm which may have caused my lips to itch profusely after the application.

Ingredients present in Palmers Lip Balm

Chemical Sunscreens – YES

Fragrance & Flavoring – YES

Vitamin E (TOCOPHEROL) – YES

Mineral Oil – YES

But again, I can’t tell which one exactly was the ingredient that caused the reaction in me. It could be either one of the four.

The bottom line is – It doesn’t work me, the itch is simply unbearable, and it’s high time I discontinued the usage of it. So the hunt for my ultimate lip balm is still on !

That’s all for now. Until next time !
