I am bored and don’t want to work I just finished posting e-ring diamond size Confession 101A and Confession 101B – – it got me thinking about things that I am overly obsessed w/ which lead me to Confession 101C – – my love, need, want, always justifiable Lip Balm purchases. One thing I cannot stand are chapped, cracked, rough and worn looking lips. I have lip balms all over our house, my car, in jacket pockets, in pocket books…And I be sure that FH doesn’t leave home w/out his too Below are my all time favorite lip balms – for all different reasons.
Kiehls #1 – I have the large tub that sits on my bedside table. I used to have bag balm for the longest time until I truly felt saw and experienced the difference. Bag balm has a home in my car!
Rose Bud Salve – daytime work lip balm. It’s a light non tasting long lasting daytime lip balm. Its also really great to rub on chapped knuckled!
Trish McEvoy – this is the most wonderful daytime, appt, and happy hour lip balm. It has SPF as well as a shimmer shine. Its only negative is that it doesn’t taste too great, yuck!!!
L’Occitane – This is the most perfect go to lip balm as it doubles as a lip gloss and goes on your key chain. I can go on and on and on about this one so I won’t, just grab one if you can because its AMAZING…… Daytime, morning, evening, Sundays etc….
Jack Black – – this is their Intense Therapy Lip Balm and I do not allow FH to leave home without it. It’s the best lip balm for guys because it has no shine factor – – sometimes I use it too – so it’s great for the ladies to borrow, lol
OK –I have Confessed my lip balm obsession – What obsessions do you ladies have?!?!?!?!?!??!

@Miss Olive – thank you for posting a pic, if you can’t tell I’m a visual learner! That lip balm casing looks similar to Dr Hauschka’s, which I also luuurve…

Day to day I use Burt’s Bees and CO Bigelow lemon & pomegranate cream. I like the bigelow balm more, but I keep the Burts in my desk drawer.

@ lilyfaith I agree with you I used the Philosphy one religiously in High School and was so dissapointed when I went to find some last year.

I don’t like using my fingers to put on lip balm, and I don’t like anything thats tingly (even Burts Bees ,akes my lips tingly) or wierd tasting, yet I’d like all natural.
I ended up finding and loving this one from http://www.bubbleandbee.com Its just plain, unscented, organic lip balm, made from sunflower oil, beeswax and cocoa butter. I love it!

I’m obsessed with C.O. Bigelow rose salve

@Jackie-O I think you are my lip balm soulmate. I too have a huge obsession. I can’t tell you how many I’ve tried, loved, hated and how much money I’ve used on lip balm. I’m glad to see someone else has the same obsession!
I’m in love with Carmex. I know it’s not the fanciest and tastes funky but it keeps my lips SO hydrated, it’s long lasting, cheap, and gives them shine but not too much.
Also love good old Vaseline. I use it every night and in the AM. I need to buy it in pocket size so I can take it to work with me!
I really want to try the RoseBud Salve. Where do you buy it?
I’ve used the Burts Bees before and didn’t really like it. What kind does everyone use? Maybe I’ll give it another shot!

Hahahah, I was slathering on the Burt’s Bees just as I pulled up this thread. Coincidence? I think not! 🙂
I recommend the original Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. I do NOT like the honey one. It smells weird to me.
So glad to see I’m not the only “Bee” who is loyal to Burt’s Bees!

I can’t find it at all anywhere but it used to be found in the lotion section at Walgreen’s: CocoCare’s Cocoa Butter lip balm. It had a yellow tube with brown writing. It was the best I had found anywhere. At the time, I used to have the worst chapped lips that would crack and bleed. There wasn’t anything else on the market that worked in my experience anyway to remedy the problem. After using this just one time, they healed good as new the next morning.
The next best lipbalm I have found is Aquafina.
Those are the only two I have had good experiences with at all. Personally, I prefer tubes to pots. I hate using the pots because the wax gets under your nails and on your fingers and they just seem messy, but that’s me.

I actually really like the cherry flavored vasoline chap stick. It’s kinda gross, but it really works!
