has anyone ever found the perfect lip balm?
for a long time, i have claimed that natural ice (by mentholatum) is the best. i pretty much still feel that way. i know i would feel that way if i lived somewhere that carried the stuff on store shelves. but because i can’t buy it here in the mid-atlantic states, i question the appropriateness of labeling it the very best. didn’t i learn something about “location, location, location” somewhere that could be applied – if loosely – here?
we all know, don’t we, that anything by blistex is worthless. (so worthless that i won’t even bother to provide a link.)
moving on again.
my husband used to be a chapstick man. the blue was usually his preferred poison. yes, i said poison. the product motto apparently is this. “chapstick: never let your lips go naked.” not naked is right. my lips can’t breathe if ever i’m foolish enough to use the stuff. who likes wearing wax lips full time, i ask.
my dearest has now moved on to burt’s bees. not bad. not bad at all. something is keeping me from making the commitment. don’t know what. but i’m not ready. let’s see how long the husband lasts. if he ends up making a lifelong commitment, maybe i will, too.
what are the other major players? i know i’ve left some out. i mean, there are oodles of options at the store. i haven’t even mentioned lip gloss.
at target, i’ve found lypsyl, which has been fun to try. i might actually kinda like it. maybe. it’s smooth going on. the tube is interesting. almost cool. but if you decide to try it, do not be sucked in by the honeyberry option. it is not as good or as smooth as the original. and the scent/flavor is nothing to write home about.
could not find lypsyl or natual ice at cvs this morning. bought some *new* blistex offering. i knew better. what was i thinking. burt’s bees was right there. why do i resist? my poor lips would surely be better off right now if i hadn’t.
