going2bmrsc :  “Lip stuff” just brought back a long forgotten memory! When my little sister was very young she would call anything i put on my lips “lip stup,” and always ask for some!

Oops, sorry for not following protocol:

Is it called chapstick, lip balm, lip goo or something else?  I call all lip balms chapstick.

How many do you own?  A gajillion.  I simply must never run out of this essential item.

Where do you keep them?  See previous post.

What is your favorite?   Natural Ice, cherry flavored.

What is your worst habit with chapstick?  Not being able to function without it.

Relative to other hygiene, health and beauty, how do your prioritize your lips?  Top priority, along with skin.

Plain ole vaseline/petroleum jelly. Anything else gives me a weird allergic reaction.

None. I always reach for lipstick if I’m applying something. I have very sensitive skin & will break out. Lip zits are the worst.

rockclimberbride :  

I use John Masters Organics original lip balm.  Its my favorite!!! I got the vanilla as well but don’t like itvas much as original. I’ll be ordering more soon and will try one peppermint to see how I like it. Its $6 each but totally worth it.  I also use Smiths Strawberry Lip Balm in the tin. Omg. Both are my go to balms. 

 

Oops I didn’t answer the Qs!!

I call it lip balm. 

I have probably four of the John masters one and two of the jars.

Lip balms are everywhere the jar I have one on my nightstand and one in my purse.

Is it called chapstick, lip balm, lip goo or something else?

I just call it all chapstick. My fiance likes to call it “lip shit”

How many do you own?

I honestly don’t know. I know I have a lot, but I can never find one when I need it.

Where do you keep them?

I try to keep one in my purse and by my bed, but they tend to travel.

What is your favorite?

I don’t really have a favorite brand, I try to stick to petroleum free. I was gifted a crap ton of burts bees chapsticks in various flavors so that’s what I’ve been using. My favorite of those is the spearmint.

What is your worst habit with chapstick?

LOSING IT. WHERE ARE THEY ALL? I DON’T KNOW!!

Relative to other hygiene, health and beauty, how do your prioritize your lips?

Not as much as I should. I only think to use chapstick when I need it, and half the time I can’t find one so my lips are a mess.

Lip balm!

How many do you own?

Where do you keep them?

In my purse or pants pocket.

What is your favorite?

Burts BeeBees Tinted lip balm in Hibiscus! Gives my lips a super natiral hint of color in winter, so I look less washed out.

What is your worst habit with chapstick?

Laundering them.

Relative to other hygiene, health and beauty, how do your prioritize your lips?

About the same? I mostly focus on good moisturizers because my skin gets crazy dry, especially in winter. I like lipstick a lot, too!

I’ve got a million in various places and of various types (chapstick, lip balm, lip goo in the tube, etc.). My favourite are the rosebud salve and the cherry “chapstick” brand. I used to love Burt’s Bees but then I started getting allergic reactions to it. I try to be good about putting it on several times a day.

rockclimberbride :  I call it all lip balm. I actually have this freebie one that my office gives out that’s my favorite. I also have various tubes of Burt’s Bees and vaseline around the house. I just keep aquaphor in my purse since I can use it on my hands and lips – come winter my knuckles get so dry they crack and bleed so standard lotion doesn’t cut it.

Where do you keep them? Purse, desk, make up bag, bedside table. 

What is your favorite? Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm

What is your worst habit with chapstick? I put it on a million times a day and can’t live without it!

Relative to other hygiene, health and beauty, how do your prioritize your lips? My other hygiene is not affected by my chapstick use. Lol.

sweatergal007 :  Dior creme de rose is sold out everywhere.  I’ve tried Saks, Neimans, Nordstrom, Bloomies etc…nobody carries it.  I wanted to try the Chanel lip balm since it contains camellia oil.  I’ve tried camellia oil on my hair and did it ever do amazing things…I swear, it’s beauty than argan oil!

Souzie :  Ohhhh I’ll have to look out for camellia oil. I’m allergic to argan so this sounds hopeful! Try John Masters lip calm. I love it! No camellia oil but a ton of good oils. 

Thanks!! Do you use camellia on skin and hair?

rockclimberbride :   I say lip balm. I have about 6 chapsticks around the house/car/ handbag. At night I put a nice thick layer of paw paw ointment on before bed. My favorite chapstick flavor is raspberry and cream but I haven’t been able to find it in a while.
