Robinson's Remedies Lip Renew - Wax Free! - Formulated for Wind Musicians!


Lip Renew Endurance Cream

Please note our 5 ml size will be discontinued when our stock runs out. Very limited supplies available.

Welcome to the World of Endurance for Wind Musicians!

Our proprietary formula was developed by professional trumpeter Ken Robinson after researching studies conducted on endurance athletes and with input from fellow wind musicians and professional chemists.  Our unique blend of ingredients works fast, is highly effective and easy to apply. Lip Renew removes lactic acid from muscles, allows oxygenated blood to enter them and reduces swelling. It DOES NOT CONTAIN wax, petrolatum or camphor so you never have to worry about it affecting your playing. You can use it while you play without wiping it off.

Finally, wind musicians can simply focus on making beautiful music without worrying about getting through those challenging gigs.

Please enjoy this video explaining why Lip Renew is truly a breakthrough product.


Robinson’s Remedies Lip Renew was born out of the reaction to our first product, Lip Repair for Cold Sores. When Ken Robinson conceived of Lip Repair, he worked with our team at the US Botanical Safety Laboratories to create a product that not only provided rapid relief of cold sores, but rapidly reduced swelling of the lip tissue while soothing and moisturizing dry and cracked lips. It was so effective at reducing inflammation and moisturizing that musicians who DO NOT get cold sores were buying the product anyway and finding that it helped tremendously!

So we set about researching how we could deal specifically with what wind musicians really wanted: a product that helps them improve their endurance. And what we found is that reducing inflammation is only part of the solution. In addition to lip swelling and fatigue, the muscles that help create the embouchure also fatigue. And after the physical stress of playing, excessive lactic acid builds up in the muscles which reduces endurance and inhibits recovery.

We couldn’t find a product anywhere that works quickly to not only treat lip inflammation, but be effective at treating muscle fatigue and help improve recovery time to make those grueling rehearsal and performance days more tolerable.

And so, working with our expert formulators at USBSL and after weeks of testing under real life performance conditions by a group of professionals led by Walter White, we created a formula that we believe is truly a game changer!

Try it for yourself and see!

Luis Aquino, World Famous Jazz Trumpeter, Puerto Rico

“The first time I tried Robinson’s Remedies products I could not believe how fast and well they helped me.
First, I tried Recovery since my chops were swollen from a hard gig I had done the night before. It was almost unreal how great it worked to bring down the swelling.
Then, I tried Renew while playing a live job and it helped my chops to end the night feeling almost brand new.” February 2022

Eric Miyashiro, World Famous Trumpeter 

” Your Lip Renew is FANTASTIC!! I have been using it everyday,  and it has helped me get through the toughest of gigs! …  You have something revolutionary here!!”   June, 2016

” I can’t live without the lip renew!   It has saved my life countless times,  fantastic product!! ”  Dec. 2016

“I am in London at the moment,   Have been in Europe for the past 8 days,  real tough tour,  came here with a cut lip, and only thing that helped me get through these gigs was your Lip Repair and Lip Renew. “ May, 2017

“The repair and renew has been saving my life for the last few months (Since my last lip injury) Can’t live with out them !!!” Oct. 2017
Roger Ingram,  Jazz Trumpeter, Educator, Author, and Instrument Designer

“So Kenny, after a very busy playing week, my chops have been a bit puffy the last two mornings prior to warming-up. Yesterday morning I did not use your new Lip Renew. But today, I used the Lip Renew for the first time. I followed the directions, and after about 15 minutes the puffiness was 90% gone. This cut my recovery time in half as opposed to yesterday’s time-frame. Congratulations, this stuff really works!” Dec. 2016

Randy Brecker – GRAMMY Award Winning Trumpet Player

“After a hard night of playing this stuff feels really good on your chops”

Kenny Rampton – Trumpet, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra

When my chops feel tired and aren’t responding, it’s because my lips are swollen. I apply a little Lip Renew and I’m good to go! I don’t do a gig without it!!!

Paul Baron – Lead Trumpet, “Alladin” traveling show

“I use Lip Renew all the time because it’s the first product that actually REALLY delivers on it’s claims. I’ve got a relentless schedule on the road with no time to recover and Lip Renew instantly brings down the swelling on contact. I use it before, during and after the gig and it helps get me to the finish-line. I call it “instant-endurance-in-a-tube”. And for overnight use it’s so great to be able to get on the horn the next morning with rejuvenated chops.”

Kate Amrine – Trumpet, NYC

This stuff is amazing! Put some on in between tunes and my lips felt instantly better. Less swollen, magically flexible and just like new!

Reggie Watkins – Trombone

If you haven’t tried Robinson’s Remedies you are missing out!!! The lip products are unbelievably effective in reducing swelling and aiding healing for over worked chops!! It saved me this month when I played a show every night (plus rehearsals) for three weeks straight. –

Trumpet Chick, Alicia Rau

Robinson’s Remedies Lip Renew rocks my world! I use it for recovery during back-to-back gig days, to reduce stiffness in my chops. But the big plus is how I can apply it in the middle of a gig. Unlike gooey chapstick, it absorbs immediately, so there’s no need to wipe it off. Yessssss.

Jeff Brucculeri – Trumpet

Blew my chops out last night at ORU basketball game. Rehearsal and concert today playing lead on whole show. That little tube of Robinson’s Remedies Lip Renew will be my friend tonight

Jon-Paul Frappier – Trumpet

Lip Renew to the rescue on a 2hr movie concert w The Denver Pops Orchestra

Khristian T. Foreman – Trombone

Any fellow brass players that do a lot of playing such as me that needs something that will take away the swelling and fatigue I RECOMMEND this stuff! Best part is you can literally use this stuff while your playing.

Jim Manley – Trumpet

Lip Renew is incredible – I mean there has never been a product for us brass players like it that really works

Elishia Wells – French Horn

This is the only product that has truly helped reduce the swelling and lactic acid in my lips after heavy playing. I love Lip Renew and never leave home without it. I tell everyone all my students and colleagues about it, and so many people have come to love it like I do. Thank you for creating such an amazing product!

Graham Mackenzie- Oboe

This is a great product. I am an oboist who has had to miss almost all of my fall season due to an embouchure muscle injury that accumulated over my last season of playing. I have been doing all kinds of things to try and heal the affected area, but none have been as effective as the Lip Renew (applied frequently to the muscles of the embouchure). It has an almost immediate effect of reducing the feeling of heat/inflammation, and shortly after application I noticed a significant increase in the amount of effort/use I could get from those muscles over quite a long period of time. I had a heavy concert this past weekend and though my issues didn’t go away completely, they were significantly reduced by the Lip Renew. I also think that over the longer term, with consistent application, that it will allow the muscles to heal themselves, something that has not been happening over the past several months without this product. Highly recommended!

Jennifer Wharton – Trombone

I loved it so much I’ve got all my friends to use it too! Really helps take the edge off those heavy playing periods. I did an in depth review a while back

Brian Graber – Trumpet

I just put a dab on my lips and it felt cool and soothing. it absorbed into the lips and muscles fast with no greasy feel and with a pleasant taste. I was in no pain from any swelling right from the start of the gig. I kept applying it every 30 minutes because I still felt a tad bit puffy and stiff but as the gig went on my lips actually improved when it should have been the exact opposite. I’m sold. The product works exactly as it claims and I am totally pumped about that.

Luigi De Angelis- Trumpet

This stuff is amazing, last night saved my Gig! To get the maximum you have to apply while you’re playing when you feel your chops tired or swollen and the chops will come fresh and “alive” again after seconds!

The first time I used Robinsons Remedies was at the intermission of a very strenuous concert. My chops was exhausted after a grueling first half and honestly, I didn’t think I was going to make it through the second half. A dear horn friend of mine said, “Try this stuff, it really works” and handed me Lip Renew. Ten minutes later, I was on stage, feeling more fresh than before the concert started! I had been using lip care products since the 7th grade, specifically for brass players, but they always contained wax and mysterious ingredients. Whenever I put the other products on, I couldn’t play immediately, I would have to wipe it off and they wouldn’t make my embouchure feel reenergized and supple. Robinsons Remedies Lip Renew goes with me everywhere and I make sure a tube is in all my of trumpet cases!

Alia Kuhnert, Doctoral Student, Trumpet

I started using Lip Renew because I saw that one of my friends on Facebook raving about the product, and decided to give it a try. For many years, I’ve played high horn in groups all around the state of California, and many times, despite my full-time teaching schedule, I also have a full-time performance schedule. I was having some trouble with the swelling in my lips from long and demanding rehearsals night after night, and didn’t want to resort to taking copious amounts of ibuprofen. I even tried to take Arnica, but nothing seemed to work for me.

When I found Lip Renew, I was hopeful, but nervous. In early 2017, I was in the middle of playing a set that included Don Juan, Grieg Piano Concerto, and the Planets, and as the principal horn player of the orchestra, I was a little worried about my endurance. I began to use Lip Renew at the first rehearsal and immediately noticed results. Within minutes, the swelling in my lips went down and I felt stronger than ever. From that moment on, I was a true believer, and buy the products regularly. I have shared it with all of my students (I have over 40 college brass students), and all of my colleagues, and many of them have become true believers, as well. I even shared it with one of your endorsers, Alia Kuhnert! She first heard about the product from me last summer, and she has been a believer ever since.

I hope that I can be a helpful advocate for this product that has helped me through so many challenging playing scenarios, and introduce others to a happier playing experience with Lip Renew.

Elisha Wells, Director of Bands Fresno City College

 Robinson’s has saved me chops! Now that I’m playing more bass trombone and longer parade gigs, the horn is constantly on my face and can get sore pretty quickly. With Robinson’s, I’m able to get quick relief and feel good for the rest of the gig. I never go anywhere without it!

Caitlin Jodoin – Educator & Tubist

“I play tough gigs. Not Brandenburg Concerto tough, but tough none the less. You see, almost all the gigs I play are LOUD. I’m talking drummers wearing batting gloves, guitar amps turned to 11 kind of funk gigs. Or brass band gigs where you have no PA to work with. And as a lead player, I have always had issues with my chops swelling and getting stiff during a tough set. That’s why when Kenneth Robinson told me about his new product “Lip Renew” I was extremely interested. All I can say is WOW! I recently completed two weekends of 6 hour rehearsals for an upcoming series of brass band gigs. The musical director commented to me on the last day that I seemed to be getting stronger as the rehearsals went on. One of the reasons? Robinson’s Lip Renew! I love the fact that I can apply it whenever I have a few bars of rest and feel like I just took off for a whole tune. This stuff is amazing! If you play punishing gigs of any type Lip Renew needs to be part of your performance!” 

Jose Johnson – Trumpet

“Robinson’s Remedies has been a game changer for me within the last few years. Sometimes you have a long night of playing and the chops are feeling a bit shot the next day….After applying Robinson’s Remedies Lip Renew and Recovery chapstick, my chops honestly and truly feel refreshed, recharged, and ready to play again without bruising or fatigue! Both products are one-of-a-kind and I know I can count on them to do what they say they do!”

Joe Pino – Trumpeter, Composer, & Educator, New York City

“I tried it once and never looked at another product again. My chops were not slippery but moist.
They were not dry, but flexible and pliable.
It also applies well and you don’t have to use very much. “
Wendell Kelly, Freelance Trombone, Composer, Arranger & Conductor – LOS ANGELES
“What a great product! Lip renew has really helped me out on heavy playing weeks. Thanks!”
C. Lazarus, Wazata MN



What Makes Lip Renew Different from other Lip Balms?
Lip Renew is a special formula specifically designed to help wind musicians cope with swollen, stressed and overworked lips and muscles associated with demanding performance and rehearsal schedules. As an all natural formula created by experts in natural remedies, this cream has been tested by professional wind musicians who have applied it before, during and after performances. Our goal was to create something completely new and different from current products; one that could be used even during performance without having to wipe it off and would be known for being fast acting and highly effective.

Why is Lip Renew a cream and not a more conventional “stick”?
We created Lip Renew as a cream because we wanted it to work quickly to improve endurance during playing situations. Our research indicated that most products made in stick form have wax as a primary ingredient. Even natural waxes such as beeswax act as a moisture barrier. In our view, wax would prevent the active ingredients found in Lip Renew from penetrating into the lip tissue and mouth muscles. In short, we believe that Lip Renew would be less effective as a stick than as a cream.
Think about how waxes are used in other applications. They act as a barrier in foods such as fresh cheese, which have a wax covering. And waxes such as carnauba wax are found in high quality car waxes to produce a beautiful shine and barrier against rain.

Our new Lip Renew Recovery product is the first stick product free of wax, paraffin, petrolatum. Check it out as a perfect choice for recovery!

What’s in Lip Renew that makes it so special?
First, part of what makes Lip Renew special is what it does not contain. Our formula is free of waxes, petrolatum, camphor, saccharin, alcohol or harsh chemicals. It contains a blend of minerals, amino acids, plant extracts and oils that our research indicates has three key benefits. First, it rapidly reduces swelling of the lip tissue. Second, it reduces muscle fatigue in part by preventing the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscle. Third, it improves oxygenation of the blood.
Please note that these statements have not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

When can I use Lip Renew?
Lip Renew is made to be used anytime. You will especially note its effectiveness if you apply it lightly before you play or even during a performance. It is designed to absorb within seconds and does NOT need to be wiped off. Apply it lightly and see just how fast it works!

How do I apply Lip Renew?
Lip Renew is designed to be used not only for lips but by the muscles that help form the embouchure. We recommend applying Lip Renew to the lips, above and below the lips as well as the sides of the mouth. Just remember that this product is for external use only!

How often can I use Lip Renew?
Lip Renew can be used anytime and as often as you like. You won’t need much though! We recommend applying in thin layers as often as you feel you need it. Remember, it is professional strength!

What if I am a woodwind player? Will Lip Renew help me?
Absolutely! Lip Renew is effective for lips AND muscles. Make sure you apply it to the sides of the mouth where it will help in your endurance. And if you apply it to your lips, you won’t have to worry about it being a problem if you play a reed instrument. It absorbs in seconds and does not leave a waxy residue on the reed.

What is that cooling, tingling feeling?
You will experience a mild cooling sensation and possibly some tingling too. That means the active ingredients are penetrating into the lip and muscle tissue. It means that Lip Renew is working!

Why is Lip Renew so expensive?
There are a few reasons why Lip Renew is a premium priced product. First, our product is created at the US Botanical Safety Laboratory in North Carolina to ensure the quality of our ingredients and the effectiveness of our formula. Second, we use very high quality ingredients. These ingredients are also highly effective. We could make a cheaper formula but it would contain ingredients that we consider “fillers” without any benefit to you. And third, our formula contains concentrations of active ingredients to ensure that our product performs to our high standards of rapid relief and effectiveness. It isn’t just what you use, but how much you use that matters.
As a wind musician, your lips and mouth muscles are as important as the equipment you play on. We believe that Lip Renew works quickly and effectively to help your endurance. We think it’s worth every penny.

Where can I buy Lip Renew?
Lip Renew is available on our website: It will be available in select music stores too. Currently it is available at Thompson Music (Omaha,NE), Springfield Music (Springfield, MO), Dillon Music (Woodbridge, NJ), Virtuosity Music (Boston, MA), Osmun Music (Acton, MA) and Parker Brass (London, UK)
