I have the same exact problem. I've tried everything out there and would develop a reaction after a week or two of use. I found the Nivea Kiss of Moisture in the dark blue tube (there's one in a light blue tube too, but it's not the same) is the best lip balm ever. I have been using it for years and haven't had a problem. Also, I found that I wasn't drinking enough water to keep my skin hydrated. The skin on your lips is much more sensitive to dehydration than the rest of your body. Try drinking more water, at least 2 liters a day and it should help with chapped lips.
Hi there...I'm not sure if you had your question resolved but I have the same issues. I've been using Aquaphor (I discovered it when my son developed diaper rash). It's very emollient & it's water based, it's the only thing that works for me. I put it on every night before bed & throughout the day.
When I feel like putting on gloss, I've found that I don't have a reaction to the Chanel brand lip gloss in the light colors. For some reason the dark colored glosses in the Chanel line cause me to get that sandpapery feeling on my lips.
Hope that helps :)
