Sorry for the insanely long url below (can't figure out how to shorten it). This is the product I have, but I would just buy the cheapest pure lanolin you can find. I'll bet they're all the same. Lanolin comes from the wool of sheep, but you probably know that. I did not worry about consuming this or any of the products, but I already use all kinds of skincare products, eat meat, and wear lots of wool in the winter, so this did not seem like a big deal. https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Solutions-Lanolin-Environment-Protectant/dp/B000I1OYNK/ref=pd_bxgy_img_sccl_1/135-0233195-5034639?pd_rd_w=9QA2k&content-id=amzn1.sym.7757a8b5-874e-4a67-9d85-54ed32f01737&pf_rd_p=7757a8b5-874e-4a67-9d85-54ed32f017...
Yes, I use lanolin instead of vaseline. The latter was breaking me out and didn't help "seal" in the other products essential for my dry skin. Over time, lanolin has been hydrating and the effects play out into the next two to three days (e.g. neglecting to be as routine with my skincare lol).
The lanolin is the final layer, so I do a normal skincare routine (including moisturizer) first.
Hope that helps :)
I've noticed pregnancy dreams are not only the most vivid and intense (I have always had super vivid dreams, this is worse) but also the most bizarre/irrational thing I have ever experienced. To the point that I am waking up super stressed out from them almost every day. Why can't they ever be comforting or sweet dreams?
Also, Now Solutions 100% Lanolin works wonders for sensitive/itchy/painful nips. I'm only 9w+3 and I've been using it for a little over 2 weeks.
Landolin is amazing and will help. Get the bulk order. I think it’s softer (and cheaper) than the stuff in the tube. Nipple shields are a life saver.
I’d get help with the latch from pediatrician. See if they have a lactation specialist to support you. I’m so sorry
Srs After using one of the tiny sample things of that same sort of thing when I got it in my Birchbox, I bought a huge jar of plain lanolin off Amazon and that was four years ago and it’s still got quite a bit in it. I depotted small quantities into other containers for maximum portability/minimum contamination and grossness. Totally recommend.
I've purchased this one for the inside of my nose and it works really well: NOW Solutions Lanolin Pure, 7-Ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000I1OYNK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_xy5uCb99H9ZNQ
Amazon sells little jars it could be transferred to but I'm not sure if that would interest you lol.
I love using lanolin on my lips when they get bad. If you end up liking it, I would check out amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I1OYNK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1
There’s more kinds on there, but you can get a 7 Oz jar for the same price as that tube. I also think it works better if you put some lip balm on let it soak in a couple minutes then put lanolin on.
Completely jealous of your haul :)
Vaseline is amateur hour.
You want real relief? Lanolin. That stuff is magic. 50x better than any chapstick or vaseline. I started using it when I was on accutane, and my lips would crack and bleed. First time I applied it, and 15 minutes later, I had relief for the first time in two weeks.
I literally carry some around everywhere. Nothing else comes close. Don't use chapstick for a week in the winter and your lips are scabbed and bleeding? Lanolin will fix that up in like, a hour, tops.
Nope! I’ve used a few different brands, as long as it’s 100% lanolin you should be good. I’ve been using this NOW one and I’ve barely made a dent in it after using it daily for about four months! But you can usually find pure lanolin in the baby skincare section at the store
I would recommend trying pure lanolin, something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Now-Solutions-Lanolin-Pure-Ounce/dp/B000I1OYNK/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1507045448&sr=8-1&keywords=pure+lanolin
The chemical make up of lanolin is actually very similar to the oil our own skin produces, so works incredibly well as a moisturiser.
I really like using Vanicream as a moisturizer. It's heavy but sinks in. If my skin is super chapped, then I use lanolin as an occlusive at night. Some people also like using Vaseline, but lanolin sinks in better for me.
It's not good for during the day as it's sticky, but using lanolin helps with my husband's dry, cracked hands. He uses it as a hand mask while sleeping. A little goes a long way -- it's also a great lip balm.
I have a similar problem cyclically as the weather cools down (it's strange, I know) and it's always seemed to be a hydration issue for me. I ended up co-opting the lanolin I usually use on my lips for an overnight moisturizer on the incredibly dry areas and it's cleared up in less than a week.
Lanolin is not expensive. You can buy a giant tub of pure lanolin for $11 USD on Amazon.
May also be worth trying lanolin, I use it mostly for my lips as a night treatment but sometimes I'll apply it to my hands then sleep with gloves on, my hands are always baby smooth afterwards. You can get a good-sized tub of it for around $9 on amazon, this is what I get and it's been amazing: https://smile.amazon.com/NOW-Solutions-Lanolin-Environment-Protectant/dp/B000I1OYNK/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=lanolin&qid=1588733865&sr=8-4.
Amazon has a 7oz tub for less than lanisoh at the stores:

Lanolin is reasonably effective. Shop around. Here is an example on Amazon.
I found one on Amazon.ca that is 100% pure lanolin. So you use is much lower then typical products which have other ingredients. 200g for $20. LINK - LANOLIN
It's just 100% pure lanolin, which is a semi-solid, about the texture of the lip balm that comes in a pot. It is the only thing that works on my crazy dry lips.
NOW brand Pure Lanolin on Amazon comes is a reasonable sized container, and costs about $11. That should be enough to last a few years at least. It is 100% natural, with only one ingredient.
