Im currently using aquaphor but I first wet my lips with water then apply aquaphor to lock in the moisture and I've actually noticed some good results. Aquaphor on its own is useless for ec but it works when you wet your lips with water than apply right after.
It's been a couple of weeks and my lips are less red and I can actually see some lines coming back. I think our lips are just extremely dry, that's why the skin keeps on dying. It needs water to survive.
