Lip Balm:

Snapple Lip Balm

~ Lip Balm is probably the most underrated item in your pocket, handbag, or whatever thing you use for carrying your items. Why is it underrated? Compared to the cellphones, Ipods, PSPs, and etc. the lip balm is like a nickel in a pile of gold.

~ But have you ever noticed that the lip balm actually is the only one that helps you? Yes, you spend too much money for your phone bill, too much money for buying songs and podcasts, and too much money and radiation for buying and playing portable video games. But the lip balm magically heals and comforts your lips.


~ What is a lip balm? Lip balm or lip salve is a substance topically applied to the lips of the mouth to relieve chapped or dry lips, angular cheilitis or stomatitis, and cold sores. Lip gloss is similar in the fact that it is topically applied to the lips of the mouth, but generally has only cosmetic properties. The balm is usually manufactured from beeswax, petroleum jelly, menthol, camphor, scented oils, and various other ingredients. Some manufacturers also add vitamins, alum, salicylic acid, or aspirin. Most lip balms also contain octinoxate, avobenzone, and/or other sunscreens to minimize sun damage.

A Japanese brand of lipbalm. This lip balm is called "Yuzu".

Concerns:

~ What kind and/or brand of lip balm do you use? Which kind of lip balm do you think works best?

Not-So-FunFacts:

~ Did you know that the first lip balm was actually made out of earwax? It was functional, but the taste was undesirable. However, its popularity has grown in recent years. A small but growing fan base, committed to the use of all-natural products, touts its use as a superior organic alternative to other varieties of lip balm.

Bioterm lip balm is the best I ever tried, not too waxy and I can still apply lip color on it.

second choice is L'occitane but a bit waxy.

I'll use any lip balm from Sephora. My lips are kind of big so I always make sure I have chap stick on because big chapped lips are gross. Burts Beeswax is great too. ^_^

Doesn't work for me, doing so would only make my lips more dry.
