I exfoliated my lips in the morning cause they looked awful. I applied biotique morning nectar for 20min and the skin exfoliated easily. I got the American health acidophilus today and I applied it to the affected area on my top lip and the border right above my lip skin on my bottom lip. It hasn't dried them out and they look normal although I can see the stuff drying on my lip. My lips are comfortable but I'm trying not to make too many facial expressions at the moment. I applied it late in the afternoon after I got it shipped in and I applied more after I showered at night cause it all came off in the shower even though badlips advised against this. I don't see why I shouldn't apply it at night. I did not shake the bottle prior to application. I got blisters on my fingers trying to open this bottle. I have to use pliers every time I open the cap cause it doesn't open otherwise. I really hope that this is working. Where are all the other members that were using this by the way? I'll try to keep everyone updated.
