Dr. Dan’s + Bass Pro Partnership

This past weekend, we hinted at some exciting news for Dr. Dan’s Skin Care — and today, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Bass Pro Shops to bring the entire line of Dr. Dan’s Skin Care products to select stores.

This is a significant step for us, and the culmination of two years of work in the outdoor industry beginning with the sponsorship of our first professional angler, Danny DeVries, in 2014. Since then, we’ve been traveling the country, educating anglers about better skin care, and attracting the attention of some of professional angling’s stars and legends, including Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, Peter Miller, Mike Iaconelli, Scott Martin and Jimmy Nelson. Our efforts have been recognized by a number of publications, including GAFF Magazine, FLW and Golf Forum, and our products were recently promoted to a national audience on NBC’s TODAY show.

If you’d like to join us in celebrating this milestone, we’ll be holding an official launch event on June 6th at 2:00pm at the Bass Pro Shops location in Cincinnati featuring the iconic Peter Miller, host of NBC Sports’ “Bass 2 Billfish”. We’ll be discussing Dr. Dan’s Skin Care products and the importance of protecting your skin.

True Stories: Lip Licking

Just as adults have chapped lips, children can also have problems with dry, painful lips. We have all seen children with the red ring around their lips. That red ring comes from children repeatedly licking their lips. In an effort to keep their lips moist, they lick them over and over. This tends to make the problem worse by producing a red, dry, painful ring around their lips. No matter what you try, it just doesn’t seem to go away including Vaseline and regular lip balms.

The patient seen here no longer suffers from a red ring thanks to CortiBalm. With Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm, those red lips were gone in just 2 to 3 days. Within 24 hours, CortiBalm begins to relieve the pain, itching and redness, reducing the need to repeatedly lick your lips. Then CortiBalm keeps on working to help moisten and heal the skin, solving the problem of the red ring from lip licking.

Review Roundup

This week we’ve rounded up some of our favorite reviews from across the web from doctors, patients, and others who are tired of suffering from chapped lips.

My Lips Are Cracked During Accutane Treatments, Which Lip Balms Would be Best?

“Accutane can be excessively drying (which is the point!), but can lead to dryness of the nose and lips, particularly. Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm is the best for the lips because it contains hydrocortisone, which helps soothe, heal, and take away redness. You can find it online or your pharmacy can order it for you. It should cost about $5-$8 for a stick. Aquaphor is great too, but isn’t as easy to…” Read more

“My favorites are Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm (which has Hydrocortisone) for calming inflammation in combination with Natural Ice Sport spf 30 lip balm (which contains aloe and vitamins A, D & E). Accutane causes sun sensitivity, so we recommend any SPF 15 or higher lip balm daily as needed.

If excessive dryness, redness and cracking are present or persist, we recommend a topical…” Read more


Makeup Alley: Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm

“I joined this website specifically to sing the praises of this product! This lip balm is truly a miracle for me!!! I suffered from eczema and dry lips that constantly itch, peel and burn! I may have one good day in a long while, where my lips are well-behaved, but as soon as I dared put on any lipstick or get foundation near my lips, I would pay penance with a major breakout. Numerous research into why I was suffering this badly has lead nowhere. I’ve tried everything from La Mer to plain old Blistex, to no avail. If you can name a brand or product, I can tell you that I’ve already tried it! My situation was so bad, I wouldn’t leave the house without some sort of a lip balm for fear of my lips throwing a tantrum. Then I discovered the Dr. Dan’s Cortibalm and my life changed.” Read more

“This is the absolute BEST lip balm I have ever tried, and I’ve tried them all. It does what it says. I’ve tried EVERYTHING and nothing works for my dry lips. If you visit their website and send a self addressed stamped envelope they will send you a sample to try.” Read more


Bestcovery: Best Lip Balm

“Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm is a highly effective medicated formula that instantly relieves all chapped lips, regardless of the cause. It uses 1% Hydrocortisone to reduce inflammation and heal delicate lip skin. This lip balm is so potent, it works immediately and doesn’t require constant application.” Read more

“If you have a severe skin condition that is causing lips to crack – or if the cause is from topical medications used to treat acne or psoriasis, then try Dr. Dans. This balm contains hydrocortisone to relive pain and heal the skin. It is a hypoallergenic formula, and could very well be the best option for you.” Read more
