Chapped lips

Hi, this winter the most annoying thing has been permanently cracked lips...
I have dry and almost flakey lips at the moment, I have tried lip balm, but this seems to make it worse, and petroleum jelly (vasaline) tastes funny.
Do you have any suggestions? As I've started. Linking my lips more and this isnt helping either.

Re: Chapped lips

Lanolin based lip balms can be very good. Some of the nipple balms made for nursing women can also act as great lip balm.
