Most Helpful Positive Review The absolute BEST product for hydrating lips!
I have never found a product quite as moisturising as Lano 101 Ointment! Before I discovered the product, my lips were constantly dry and flakey. Nothing I ever used was able to permanently fix the condition of my lips, until i found 101 Ointment! It is unscented, pure Lanolin, I put on a thick layer before going to sleep each night, and wake up with soft supple lips every single day! It's also the perfect base for lipsticks. Seriously my desert island product! Can't wait to try more from the range
Most Helpful Critical Review Totally overpriced
Buy a tube a lanolin for $7 in the baby aisle! This is so overpriced it's ridiculous! This is nothing more special than regular lanolin. It does work decent so hence the two stars, but it's not the super balm they claim it to be. It wears off easily and tastes kinda bad, but that's why no one likes using lanolin. So not worth the money.

Lanolin is basically the only ingredient that has ever actually treated & cured my super dry lips, so I was ecstatic to finally find and purchase this. I am super confused and disappointed by this product tho :( it affected my lips like any lip balm does, which means it made my lips peel a lot and didn't treat the dryness at all :( I am wondering if there is another ingredient that is in this balm that I am sensitive or allergic to, because I just cannot believe that lanolin has not worked for me! Looking at the ingredient list though, I don't see anything that typically gives me an issue... I hate to say it but I wonder if this product has been made with less lanolin & more of other ingredients to cut the cost of production for something because of you really know how incredible lanolin is, you know that this balm just ain't it!
I will say the packaging and branding is PERFECT and so pretty and vintage and cute looking. That's another reason I wanted to love this so much, but I just don't!
The only thing that works for me!
Selene from Chicago
Lanolin is truly the only ingredient I have found that is able to treat and heal my severely chapped, cracked, peeling lips, and I was having a hard time finding a balm with lanolin (didn't feel like repurchasing the glossier balm and placing a whole order on their website just for a lip balm ya know?) And then I came across this brand!!! I am so happy I finally found this! I'm looking forward to trying more products from this line as the weather gets colder since the winters are brutal where I live.
Good Product, not long lasting
Antoinette from MD
Good product. Leaves lips feeling hydrated and soft. Thought product would be long lasting or at least leave lips soft once product is absorbed but you will need to reapply. Think this is a great product for spring/summer but I need something a bit more hydrating for fall/winter.
Lanolin is my holy grail
Rhi from Phoenix
I LOVE lanolin for my lips, cuticles, cuts etc., but before this product (101 ointment) came out the only form of lanolin I could find was huge tubes of nipple cream. This makes it more convenient to carry around. I can't wait to try the lip glosses as well!
Britt from CA
I have very dry, sensitive skin and have been struggling with frequent eczema like flare ups over my entire body. The most consistent and painful being reactions on my eyelids and under eyes. I've tried every treatment available including dermatologist prescribed steroid creams and expensive eye creams claiming to heal and soothe eczema like symptoms. Nothing worked - they would either make my skin more red and sensitive or temporarily ease the symptoms until my next flare up. I picked this up to use as a lip balm after reading the reviews as I also suffer from extremely dry lips. I happened to also be having a flare up around my eyes (red, swollen, itchy and flaky skin) and decided to apply the balm to my eyes overnight. When I say I woke up the next morning with hydrated, smooth, and completely soothed eyelids I'm not even kidding! I'm ecstatic. I've been using this as an eye cream every night and have not had a flare up since. Not only that, but my skin is more hydrated than ever! Sure, the price point may seem a bit high at first glance, but I literally will never stop buying this product. So thankful I stumbled upon it!
It Does What It Says!
Sleepy in Saginaw from Saginaw, MI
I was having pretty severe problems with psoriatic areas, eczema, and general dry skin from some type of allergic reaction. I was doing some research on products that might help. Came across this gem! I was not very hopeful as I've gone through so meant products. I love that this is natural, absorbs great, and has long lasting results. Yes, it's very costly! I have since purchased a large jar of quality, locally sourced lanolin for a few dollars more than this 1/2 oz tube. I will definitely purchase this again to carry in my purse. It does not have any appreciable smell (and my sense of smell is excellent) as another reviewer stated. You will not be disappointed with this purchase!
Peeling lips gone in 2 days!

Literally 101 uses
gothadjacent from PNW
I'm a big fan of Lano's hand creams, rose in particular, the glycerin cleanser (although I do use it for washing my makeup brushes) and the all over intense lotion as well for my dry, highly eczema prone, hyperallergenic/hyper reactive skin. I'm a 15N, and a natural redhead as well and I have hEDS and a UV allergy that makes my skin peel with most sun exposure unless medicated + spf; so I become sensitive/react to products quite easily. I grabbed this to see the consistency of it to use it for my lips and cuticles. Turns out it's fantastic for fresh (and old) tattoos as well! I'm 3/4 of the way fully covered in tattoos from my head to my armpits to my toes and have tried just about every lotion/cream/salve worth mentioning to heal them with moderate success. In the last month I had about 6 hours of tattoo work done on my calves, and applying this around the edges very sparingly on the 5th day mark, and then lightly on dry areas after washing was a godsend! They're healing so bright and smooth, I couldn't be happier. I noticed they make healed tattoos pop too! Can mix with a little highlighter or glitter for the extra extra life 💕 highly recommend this and am on my third tube now.
Not at this price point....
ThriftyNicki from Us
The balm is just OK. Works no better than plain old Vaseline or Eucerin in my opinion, and this price point I would not repurchase
Tchela from Maricopa AZ
I have had dry, chapped and pealing lips for several years. It was really bad. I couldn't wear lipstick because it just highlighted the cracks. It really has taken an emotional/self-esteem toll on me. I have spent a fortune trying every balm I come across and hours scouring the internet for top rated products. I recently came across 2 "best" lists and both recommended lanolips. After 2 days I noticed a huge difference. I thought it might be too good to be true. A week later and my lips are 100% perfect! No cracks at all. I don't usually write reviews but I'm sitting here amazed and so grateful. I wanted to share it! For me, the price is kinda ridiculous for a lip balm but I dont care, the results are priceless!
Needs to warm
Rachel from USA
I have very dry lips... I am married to lip hydrators and balms.. i like this, it makes my lips feel soft and it's kinda glossy. But it definitely leaves a bit of an oily residue on my finger from applying and it almost more feels like a barrier that is sitting on my lips instead of sinking into them and hydrating? I think if it was warmed a bit on my fingers first it might be better, so just be aware.
Not that great
dryLips404 from portland,or
I am on a*cutane and need super hydrating lip masks since my lips are peeling. My go to was B*teBeauty but since they went vegan, I needed a dupe. This product has the lanolin but it does not provide the same level of hydration as the non vegan version of the lip mask I loved. Also it is really hard to squeeze it out without feeling like the tube is going to pop.
Ljohnson1008 from Cincinnati, Ohio
Repurchased and pretty bummed! The first tube I bought several months ago was thicker and SUPER moisturizing. I used it every night before bed. I ran out and bought a replacement. This doesn't seem to be the same formula. It's MUCH thinner and goes on my lips like a gloss rather than an ointment. Pretty disappointed...
I would buy again.
Gin from Kemp, TX
Worked great for my dry lips.
You need this product handy.
Ceta from WPB, FL
OBSESSED with this product. I've repurchased 5 times at this point. Must have for dry skin - lips, nose, even hands. I use it anywhere I'm extremely dry. It's so helpful in the winter when your nose is chapped, and even more so from blowing it. I also put this around my nose before I go to bed at those times and it's as if nothing happened. Any other time I would be in so much pain all day especially if I was blowing my nose. This stuff is a lifesaver. 10/10.
This was a repurchase. This is my go to lip moisturizer!
Picky 1 from Chippewa Falls WI
Use this product throughout the winter. My lips have never looked or felt better!
Favorite all purpose balm...for lips especially
Ellen from La Jolla
I use it as my every day lip balm and for any dry patches I have on my face or hands. It keeps moisture locked in for a long time and doesn't have annoying scents or color.
Took 2 days to help my lips!
Kris from Milbury Ma
full of air
brianna from snellville, ga
I got this yesterday and after breaking the seal to start using it, i pushed out about 70% air before i got to this product. for the amount this costs i would at least expect this container to be full. it looks like i had been using it for weeks after one use. definitely returning this.
I think I got a bad one?
Kaylin from Wildwood, MO
I've had this tube for less than three months (tube says good for 12 after opening) and it was PERFECT. Haven't had chapped lips in a few weeks until just now. I opened the tube and it immediately smelled RANK. Looks fine, no discoloration or anything. It just smells like dirty feet/bo and it's been just sitting in a drawer for MAYBE two weeks. Idk what happened to it.
Katie Jean from Wisconsin
I bought this product after seeing it in a Buzzfeed listicle and was a little skeptical whether it would live up to the hype. I've tried so many "best" lip balms and nothing has wowed me the way this has. I've only been using it for a couple of days and it's already done wonders! I've been using a similarly priced lip mask for a couple of months and hadn't been getting the results I hoped for so when this started working immediately I was blown away. If it continues working this well I may never buy another brand again!
Amazing lip moisturizer
Gothic_Barbie89 from Pasadena MD
I will definitely buy another tube when this one runs out. This product is AMAZING to say the least. It comes out of the tube thick but feels lightweight once applied. The super balm locks in moisture and gives your lips a nice shine. Apply it to bare lips, on top of your favorite lipstick or as a base before applying lip color. I highly recommend this product!
Horrible! Hard wouldn't come out of the tube!
Annette from Warren Michigan
I couldn't even try it. It was so hard I couldn't even squeeze any out of the tube! It was quickly returned!
I would purchase this again
Me from Southern Pines, NC
I love this stuff... I had tried several different things for my dry, chapped, peeling lips, and everything seemed to wear out quickly and just made it worse. This stuff sticks around for a long time and made my lips nice and soft. The only thing I didn't like that I've found happens with most lanolin based products is that it turns white around the corners of my lips, but overall it's great and was very soothing.
Super thick! Works well!
Facetime from Nj
Love everything about this product with one exception. Ointment is so thick it is incredibly hard to push through the tube.
