i've been pretty much balmfree for several months now
occasionally i apply calendula ointment
i prefer not applying anything but, although my condition didn't get worse, it didn't improve either
whenever i try however to not peel my lips manually and just let the crusts stay there, they get ever thicker
they don't start to come off by themselves at one point or another, as suggested by those doing the "japanese treatment"
i do not experience a "peeling cycle" in this sense
so monsterlip, did the skin buildup on your lips just loosen itself from the rest of the lip tissue after a given time? or did you experience the same progressive thickening of the crusts in the beginning? how thick were the crusts before they came off?
