RIPT: On the hands, the feet, the inner thigh and the ass

Posted by: Emily Beers

For three months, I walked around looking like a clown.

I had an unfortunately aggressive case of apparent chronic chapped lips. If you’ve ever experienced it, dry lips that  persist for weeks, months, are annoying and painful. I asked around at the pharmacy, I googled, yet nothing seemed to work.


It got to the point where I couldn’t leave home without one stick of chapstick or another, and I had minor panic attacks when I couldn’t find any.

Sometimes the days brightened as I thought my lips were clearing up, but whenever this happened, a relapse was always brewing.

“What are the chances of you getting those lips cleared up sometime this year?” asked one friend. Others offered their advice: 

“Try Blistex. The one in the blue container.”

“Burt’s Bees—all the way baby!”

“Good old fashioned Vasoline, girl.”

I tried them all. 

I even tried a vaginal herpes cream another friend recommended.


But alas, the persistent chapped lips continued to prevail. Until one day when it then occurred to me to try RIPT’s Quick Fix.

I kid you not, Quick Fix was the answer. Lips cleared up within a week. And never came back.

Since then, I’ve dabbled with RIPT on other areas of my body, as well,  and so far RIPT hasn’t let me down.

Notable moments include:

Quick Fix healed my rope climb burns, both on the calf and the inner thigh like a charm.

When I didn’t have time to go in for a pedicure, but I could feel the dry skin building on the soles of my feet, the Grind Stone worked wonders. 

I even used Daily Dose on the chafing on my ass after cycling without padded shorts.

The only thing I haven’t tried is using RIPT as a lube, although I’m convinced it’s a good idea.
