There are 100s of moisturizers which one can use. There is no difference which one you select as along as the moisturizer is oil based. Even the cheapest oil based moisturizers work just as well as the most expensive creams.

Some moisturizers have menthol as an ingredient. Menthol is well known to give a cooling and a soothing feeling to the lips. Other lip moisturizers may contain camphor. This chemical may help relieve pain.
