Use a high oiled base vaseline.

You don't.

Seriously, there's a reason her laning phase is possibly one of the most horrendous in the game, and it's because she has the power to snowball incredibly quickly and painfully! The best you can do is force a teamfight when her ult is down (It's a fairly long cd, if I recall), or gank/harass her repeatedly during the laning phase. She doesn't have any sustain.

If Poppy doesn't get her monies, she doesn't win. If it's jungle Poppy, then it's a similar case. She needs ganks for monies. Avoid ganks, and then Poppy is not a horrifying little girl of instadeath.

Tangrow sums it up well. A fed Poppy is a dangerous Poppy and as he rightly points out if you can disrupt her early she has a hard time getting gold and if that happens she is behind. So the best counter is to counter her early in lane. She has to last hit so harass, harass, harass. People complain about her horrendous farming but can you imagine if on top of everything else if she could farm half-way decently early. = She would be a pulverizing nightmare.

Once fed it is going to take a lot of coordinated teamwork to bring her down but she can and will die. Keep in mind she is fast as well.

I for one am glad that there are not a lot of good Poppy players.

Well if she's AP that would be banshee's veil. She can't ult her target so that means losing 40% of her burst which probably means she won't be able to insta-gib her target. She shouldn't be able to get into range to break your bubble on her own before ulting you because she is not going to have much survivability and your team will be able to stop her. This means that she has to ult someone else and then break your bubble with her E which means she would just have dfg and a Q left, and no chance of stunning you.

AD poopy is much harder to stop, and is a bigger threat once she gets rolling, but she also requires a lot more gold to be an extreme threat.

poppys can be countered in lane as everyone mentions. otherwise, pick alistar or taric for support and save that knockback/stun when she ults. the ranged AD will need some kind of escape as well (in case the poppy decides to ult carry instead). some good ones are vayne & caitlyn (if you can land net)
