Lip Balm

Over my lifetime I’ve owned maybe a total of three different lip balm or chap sticks, and always ended up losing them somehow. But starting in November of last year, I’ve had such dry lips that I’ve needed to use lip balm constantly. It’s been going on four months now! Anyways, for the first time I’ve actually gotten to the end of a stick of lip balm. My Burt’s Bees finally ran out, and then I used up another Burt’s Bees! It was such a strange experience to run out of a thing that I thought lasts forever…

Well, that’s two down, but I have four more in reserve, although they are different brands. Right now my favorite is a simple, cheap H-E-B brand medicated stick. And it seems to work the best! Maybe one day I will be able to get back to normal, but I’m wondering if I just need to get used to this being the way it’s going to be for the rest of my life.

  1. don’t you know that lip balm chap stick is addicting— its made to make you keep putting it on— your unconscious knows better than you, thats why it loses it for you before you’re hooked!

    1. I tried to go cold turkey a couple times, but it was so painful that I went back to it. Tried coconut oil for a bit too. But finally after a couple days with the medicated one, my lips are pretty much healed!
