Lip Balm Anonymous: but do we really want to ditch the habit?

By Aisling | November 6 2008 | 71 Comments


Everyone knows that the use of lip balm is an addictive habit.

In the past lots of you have confessed to having five… six… seven…twenty on the go at any one time. In the car, in handbags, in every coat pocket and in the desk drawer at work.

Panic can set in if a situation occurs where no lip balm is available.

Now here’s my take. Lip balm moisturises your lips. Without it we’d have dry chapped, cracked bleeding lips – no matter what the nay sayers may have you believe. And lip balm is cheap. Unless you go for the Creme de la Mer and if you do sure you’re not on this planet anyway.

So what’s the problem? You could have an addiction to gambling, alcohol, drugs – but lipbalm?

Eh. Big deal. Go for it.

    but there’s lipbalm and there’s lipbalm – anything petroleum based will dry lips out so I like beeswax based ones. I’m using yes to carrots at the moment and really liking it.

    Kirstie – it’s true that Vaseline isn’t a strictly speaking of the genus lipbalm but it’s used as such by most people
