What is the best lip balm/chapstick?

by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

Something that won't dry out my lips after a short period of time. What is the best lip balm/chapstick?
carmax


What is the best lip balm/chapstick?
I use 4 brands depending on my need:





-Vaseline (not the petroleum jelly, but there is one that comes in a green and white pot and is specifically fro Lips) -- effective during winter, hot summers and the like.





- chap stick, for everyday use, with no specific need, when am in the house or just to keep my lips moisturized.





- neutrogena - when i go to the beach it has SPF





-nivea rose lip balm - has a hint of color; for days when I have very little make-up on, but need a hint of color.





*all of them, when applied don't look like i had being kissing a greasy pan.
A few of the best lip balms out there that will give your lips hydration without having you have to apply over and over again are: Murad Soothing Lip Repair, Qtica Intense Lip Repair Balm, and the Skyn Iceland Angelica Lip Repair. Visit www.kristybeauty.com to purchase or for more information (free shipping for orders over $50)
Softlips is really the best. It feels like your lips are instantly healing when you put it on. Its such a smooth feeling and it keeps your lips moist for a long time in between applications.
SUN, from AVON, it has an SPF of 12, and its VERY moirturizing, if you atch it at the right time it can be as cheap as 99c a stick, hope this helps
vanilla softlips. it's cheap, amazinly moisturizing, and tastes/smells amazing! you can find it at cvs or wlagreens.
burt's bees!!


tingly peppermint goodness :]


get it at bath %26amp; body works, target, walmart, etc.
i use lip smackers, and chapstick, and neutrogena,


all work great!
This regular chap stick is great moisturizer and won't leave your lips dry in the winter! http://www.chapstick.com/classic/index.asp
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly or Chapblock.
burts bees is my favorite and works great. just don't use anything with menthol in it.
blistex or medicated chapstick the original brand
burts bees or anything with cocoa butter in it.
Definitely Carmex. Or just use plain Vaseline...
burts bees.
the plain ones like Vaseline and the Nivea lip balms
Cherry vaseline.. that's all i use..





$1 at target..


it don't get better than that..!

How should I treat 2nd degree burns on my lips? Will chapstick help?

by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

The doctor gave me Silver Sulfadaine for the burns on the outside of my face but didnt tell me how to treat my lips. They are very hard and cracking any time I move them (ie to eat) The swelling has gone down but they are still very red/black under the hard casing. Can I use chapstick to keep them softer while healing or is this bad?How should I treat 2nd degree burns on my lips? Will chapstick help?
I would stick with the Silver Sulfadine and maybe aloe. Better check with the doctor though. I definitely wouldn't put chap stick on them without checking first. It is so thick and waxy.How should I treat 2nd degree burns on my lips? Will chapstick help?
Without checking with your doc, I would not use ANYTHING with any kinds of chemicals in it- no Chapstick, no Vaseline, no whipped cream, no Aloe Vera, etc. Too many chemicals can actual inhibit the healing of the tender tissues.





It is never a good idea to put was, grease, oil, petroleum, etc. on burns without a doctors orders anyway- the stuff traps in heat and is not good for new tissue.





Ask your doctor's office or nurse.
Chapstick helps everything. Seriously.
You can vaslen on it .......
Try using heavy whipping cream from the grocers dairy case. My friend tried this and she didn't have any scarring afterwards. Good luck. P.S. make sure the cream is liquid form not cool whip but in milk like container.

Are lips better off without chapstick,lip balm etc..?

by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

well i noticed that wen i apply chapsick and other lip balms my lips r soft and healthy looking but if i dont apply it my lips get dry n start 2 chap. am i better off by just letting them heal on their own nd just drink more water? cause i herd that water helps hydrate them and keep them good and i herd tht sometimes lips can get addicted to lipbalms and depend on them all the time nd they get all dried and chapped wen not applied. so please anser my question thnks =]Are lips better off without chapstick,lip balm etc..?
just let them heal on their one. I heard today that if you apply chapstick, lipgloss, etc. that it attracts the sun's ray and the UV rays.


so your better off without them. hope i helped(:Are lips better off without chapstick,lip balm etc..?
Vaseline is actually much better at keeping lips soft than chapstick, and either chapstick or (I highly reccomend) vaseline is much better than lips alone. Make sure to apply vaseline before you go to bed, and you will wake up with softer lips, like a repeated overnight treatment with 8 hours of benefit.





Drinking lots of water helps with everything ^__^ Skin and acne, complexion, weight loss, and hydration for hair and lips.
Drinking water is good, but licking your lips a lot can make them chapped as wet from water without drying your lips will dry them out. Now a chap stick is good and it does no harm to wear it all the time. I prefer a lip gloss and they make conditioners for lips also that go on very smooth like a soft chap stick %26amp; you can put that under your lipstick if you wear lipstick.
First of, everybody could drink more water.


So that won't hurt you, Lol!





And if your lips are chappy, you should definently put on chapstick or something medicated. And I suggest putting chapstick on your lips and then put your lip color, or lip balm on top of that. This will keep your lips nice and smooth.
Yes! It would be better to stop using lip balms/ chap sticks! Your lips will go through a dry stage that lasts about a week, but then you'll only ever have to apply chap stick in the winter when your lips are actually dried out. Whatever you do don't continue to apply it every 20 minutes for 6 years.........like I did. My lips are now dependent on chap stick, it's like an addiction. People laugh at me when I say that but it's true! And quite sad for me cos I have to buy a new chap stick evey 10 days.
You can't get addicted to lip balms. That's an urban myth. If your lips feel chapped, go ahead and slather on some lip balm. Drink more water, also. You should aim to get 48 to 64 ounces of water per day (or 6-8 8oz. glasses).
dont lick your lips , that makes them more chapped .


put vasilene on them before bed .


dont apply lip gloss untill the chappness is gone


and apply plenty of carmex =)
well wearing too much chapstick can actually dry your lips till u get dependent on them!!!





just let them relax for a while:)
water def helps and for me vaseline is the best for my dry lips

Is it true that using chapstick/lip balm makes your lips stop producing it's own oils?

by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

I have been a ';chapstick addict'; since I began using chapstick back in my teens. I am now 36 and don't go ANYWHERE without lip balm. If I do, my lips get very dry and flakey. I cannot wear lipstick anymore because of this! I have heard that using these lip balms is the root of the evil..could it be true? If so, how do I stop now!? I drink LOTS of water, so I don't believe in the ('you need to drink more water') reply. I currently use Mela's Vanilla lip balm and while I love it, the moment I don't use it, my lips are all dry again. It does have a petroleum base, like chapstick brand. Could that be the problem? Or is it just the use of lip balms altogether? Advice anyone?Is it true that using chapstick/lip balm makes your lips stop producing it's own oils?
These products do something bad as everyone who uses them constantly has the same problem. They either over moisturize or do something else and once you stop yes your lips do dry out badly. It'll take at least a week to get them repaired if not longer after non use of the balm.





I have only used these things once and even that experience was not the best. It helped with the dryness when needed but afterwards I noticed they were too dry. So I don't use these and I have no problems with natural moisture of lips.Is it true that using chapstick/lip balm makes your lips stop producing it's own oils?
I highly doubt chapstick will make your lips stop producing oil since they have no pores to secrete it from. Your lips are supposed to be natually protected by saliva. You really just need chapstick when youre in the sun (and your lips dry out constantly) or when youre sleeping (when saliva production slows down by alot). Try licking your lips every now and then and see if it works.
i dont think it dries out your lips. Maybe you just naturally have dry lips. I've been using chapstick for years, but it's not like horrible when i don't use it
i know its bad if u use it that often





u should try not using it for three days and then go back to lip balm. do that at least twice a month.





trust me, im a doctor
yes its true..but only with synthetic ones. you become dependant on them (especially lip balms with mineral oil in it) and it inhibits your body's own moisturizing ablities. so use a natural oil like coconut oil or beeswax or shea butter
lips dont produce oil. Rub you lips with extra virgin olive oil. they will be so soft

I've tried millions of lip balms, and I always go back to chapstick, I like the blue moisturizerChapstick, nivea, lip smackers?
Blistex is great.
chapstick - hands down. nivea is expensive and lip smackers is for little girls.
lip smackers
Niveas good. Theres loads of variety.





Personally i find that Palmer Coco Butter Lip Balm to be the best, it very reasonably priced aswell, its about 拢1.29, sorry i dont know what it is in dollars.
on a budget: Neutrogena, Carmex, Badger. I've been using Neutrogena and Carmex for years and I love them!





Luxurious: Clarins, Kiehl's, Dr. Haushuka. All are very good.
chapstick is not good at all 4 ur lips! all it is is wax!
I love Burt's Bee's...it's a natural line of cosmetics, SoftLips, Carmex, they're all pretty good!
ummm dont know any products tht will be in austrailia but i think anything un-flavored is good cuz flavored is gross

    vaseline works great


    so does burts bees


    and neutrogena
    I use Carmex when my lips get dry.Hope it helps.
    feces
    I use Blistex (but it doesn't last that long) you should use Vaseline
    Burts bees :D i love that stuff
    carmex is the best on the market i luv the stuff i have like 10 in my house.
    neutrogena


    vanilla lip balm


    theres alot of different kinds, but this one is for chapped or damaged lips, and it repairs them over night


    you can get it at wal-mart in the beauty section
    Bath %26amp; Body works has the best stuff for this!


    The beeswax lipgloss helps so much! I use it every day and my lips are smooth and nice- even when it's cold out, that stuff helps them from getting chapped.


    Also, I use this stuff from Sephora that prevents lips from chapping %26amp; sun damage.





    You can get simple stuff at CVS that will help- no problem


    Good luck


    ( :
    Burt's Bees honey flavor. Put it on before bed and in the morning your lips will feel great.
    A week ago my lips were peeling because they were so dry. Anyway, I used this chapstick my company gave to us. It doesn't have a name but it has Octinoxate (7.5%) and Oxybenzone (3%) as the active ingredients. It also has organic palm oil, beeswas, virgin olive oil, flavor, organic hemp seed oil, vitamin E, rosemary extract, comfrey, calendula, St. John's wort. It was SPF-15 and it had a mango flavor to it. Anyway, I know you can get the same thing in different flavors because I've seen it.





    Anyway, I used it every few hours for about 2 days and my lips healed. I tried not to pick at them and I think that helps too. Anyway, I would try a health food store first and see if they's carry something like that since alot of the ingredients are organic. Or you can try the natural health section in a regular grocery or drug store.

    Watch: Get to Know the Women of Runaway June — and Find Out the Story Behind Their Unique Band Name

    by Brianne Tracy @ PEOPLE.com

    Meet Runaway June, a band that’s well on its way to country music superstardom.

    The group — comprised of Jennifer Wayne, Naomi Cooke and Hannah Mulholland — has been dubbed the “Dixie Chicks for a new generation,” and with good reason. The band’s hit single “Lipstick” made them the first all-female trio to earn a top 25 hit on the country charts in a decade and with their new single “Wild West” hitting the airwaves, PEOPLE is sharing an exclusive video of the women sharing the story behind their band.

    “We’re three women singing and just telling stories that are relevant to people in this time, and we have songs that men enjoy and women are going to love,” lead vocalist Cooke says in the clip.

    The three women came up with the ‘runaway’ part of their name as they all share a similar experience of leaving their hometowns to pursue music in Nashville.

    Cooke, who is one of 11 children, moved from a little island in Florida to Music City seven years ago.

    “I did gigs, and tried to write songs,” she says. “I nannied, I cleaned houses, I waitressed — I did whatever I could to pursue music.”

    Mulholland started writing music in her room at the age of 6 or 7 and moved to Nashville from Malibu after realizing that was the only option if she wanted to write music for a living. Wayne, the granddaughter of legendary western actor John Wayne, also knew she needed to make the move if she was serious about music.

    “My grandfather gave me the western, cowboy country blood because I always loved country music,” Wayne says. “Eleven years later, here I am with the girls.”

    The second part of the band’s name centers on the significance of June, in all meanings of the word, in each of their lives.

    “One constant that kept coming up was June — the name June, the month June, there were just all these correlations,” Cooke explains. “So we were like, ‘Okay, maybe there’s something to June.’ I have a sister named June, Jen’s grandmother’s name is June and for Hannah it’s the month. A lot of cool things have happened to us in June.”

    Wayne also notes that the band signed their record deal in June. “It’s lucky for us,” Cooke continues.

    Cooke and Wayne were introduced to each other by Broken Bow Records founder Benny Brown, who suggested that they write together.Mulholland was brought into the group by Wayne through their “Malibu connection.” From there, it was history.

    “We started to write together and it was magical,” Cooke says. “ brought in Hannah and we started writing the best things we had ever written. We knew there was something really special about what we had.”

    Runaway June joins friends Midland this fall supporting CMT Presents: Jon Pardi’s Lucky Tonight Tour

    Skincare After KonMari: What Remains?

    by Becca @ NARCISSISTA.ME

    What fascinates me about the KonMari decluttering movement discussed here, is that it’s like a museum of your stuff and perhaps a window into your tender psyche.  The items that remains speaks volumes about what works and what doesn’t.  And nothing brings this more into focus than when you KonMari your skin care regime like I did. First, lets take a look into my pre KonMari medicine cabinet. What a chaotic embarrassment of skin care products accumulated thru the years, some of which had expired, eww.  Every morning I would open my medicine cabinet and find regret and shame hiding in between the products I didn’t need.  It would all start off so innocently with “oh I’ll just pop into Sephora (or Blue Mercury, or Space NK or Duane Reade)” or I’ll make a mental note of something I have to try and then voila! My friends, what you are looking at here are shelves of misguided hope and broken dreams. Lets start with cleansers I have known and loved.  Holy Cow I had three vibrating face cleanser devices and didn’t know it until I did KonMari.  As you can see I went thru a big face oil period too. The multiple CereVe and […]

    Tom Cruise's Craziest Stunts – and the Toll They Took on His Body

    Tom Cruise's Craziest Stunts – and the Toll They Took on His Body

    by Mike Miller @ PEOPLE.com

    Tom Cruise is notorious for pushing the limits with his stunt work, often performing high-flying action sequences by himself.

    Just last month, he injured his ankle while filming a scene for Mission: Impossible 6 in London, where he had to jump between two buildings.

    Below is a collection of the craziest stunts the 55-year-old has performed over his long career, along with the toll they’ve taken on his body – and his coworkers’ anxiety levels.

    1. Hanging Off the Side of a Flying Plane in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

    Described by Cruise himself as “undoubtedly the most dangerous thing I’ve ever done,” the incredible plane stunt that kicks off the opening sequence of the fifth Mission Impossible film has become one of his most iconic onscreen moments.

    The stunt was so outlandish that, according to director Christopher McQuarrie, the idea for it originated with a joke. “While searching for different locations, the production designer James Bissell bought me a model of this Airbus airplane and presented it as something we could use in the movie,” he told Yahoo UK. “I suggested to Tom, ‘What if you were on the outside of this thing when it took off?’ I meant it as sort of a half joke, but he said back to me, ‘Yeah I could do that!’ ”

    Despite the obvious dangers of hanging off the side of a plane as it takes off, Cruise said he was mostly concerned about making sure his body was situated correctly for the cameras. He did open up about one close call, however, telling reporters, “I remember one time we were going down the runway and there was just a little particle that just hit me, it was smaller than a finger nail. I was thankful it didn’t hit my hands or face, if it did I’d have a problem because those parts were exposed, but it still could have broken my ribs!”

    Speaking about the stunt, he admitted to PEOPLE at the film’s premiere in 2015, “It was intense. I’m not going to lie.”

    2. Holding His Breath for 6.5 Minutes in Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation

    After conquering the sky during the film’s dramatic opening, Cruise later made audiences squirm as he went under water, learning to hold his breath for 6.5 minutes for one scene.

    In the scene, Cruise’s character, Ethan Hunt, needs to break into an underwater storage facility – and of course, there’s no room for an oxygen tank.

    To make the sequence seem as realistic as possible, Cruise and his costar Rebecca Ferguson trained with professionals to learn how to hold their breath for long periods of time.

    But Cruise took things a step further: “Normally in underwater sequences, people hold their breath for 10 seconds, 15 seconds max,” a nonchalant Cruise explained on the film’s DVD extras.

    “So I had to prove to everyone that it was actually safe, and spend time with the safety guys and the safety officers to show them, look, not only is it safe, it’s better that I know how to hold my breath because I’m going to be very relaxed. No one’s going to have to rush in, no one’s going to have to panic.”

    Watch Cruise explain the stunt further to a very nervous Graham Norton on The Graham Norton Show above. He also goes over some unintended side effects of the training – like forgetting to breathe normally when back on land.

    3. Scaling the World’s Tallest Building in Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol

    Cruise once again went to great heights to entertain his audience when he dangled off Dubai’s Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building at 2,722 feet – for a scene in the series’ fourth installment.

    “I think I probably aged 10 years,” the film’s stunt coordinator, Gregg Smrz, later told NY Daily News of the scene, which required the film’s star to hang 1,700 feet in the air with a wire as thick as a piano cable for support.

    Besides the obvious problem of gravity, Cruise faced extreme winds and temperatures as the desert sun baked against the building’s reflective glass surface.

    And, as the clip above from The National shows, Cruise was doing a whole lot more than just hanging out up there.

    “One night, after one of the earliest shooting days, I bolted up in bed realizing that we had our star dangling about a mile up in the air on a thin wire and my brain was screaming, ‘What the hell are we doing,’” director Brad Bird told the NY Daily News. “The whole thing was one, extended, hair-raising moment but we planned well.”

    Asked what went through his head when he first stepped outside of the building, Cruise later told reporters, “I hope I don’t fall.”

    4. Swordplay on Mechanical Horseback in The Last Samurai

    Cruise trained for eight months to prepare for the swordplay and martial arts scenes in The Last Samurai – but a small technical failure almost cost him his life.

    “One day we were shooting, I was on a mechanical horse and Hiro (Sanada) was on one too,” Cruise told reporters, according to Yahoo.

    “He was approaching me and then suddenly his horse hit me and his sword was right here,” he added, pointing about an inch from his neck. “Luckily Hiro is trained in martial arts. I trust him.”

    Even without the technical problems, The Last Samurai’s action sequences were intense enough to push a veteran like Cruise to the edge. Speaking about another intense moment in the film, Cruise reportedly said, “We shot the scene from the first swing all the way through to the end. There were over 70 points of contact where you could potentially lose your eye, your ear or your nose.”

    5. Riding with the Bulls on a Motorcycle – with Cameron Diaz on the Back

    Sometimes Cruise’s enthusiasm for stunt work can be contagious, like on his 2010 film Knight and Day with Cameron Diaz.

    During one of the film’s most memorable sequences, the duo ride together on a motorcycle while being chased by a team of bad guys. As they’re driving away from a hail of bullet fire, Diaz’s character flips around on the motorcycle to face their assailants and fires off some shots of her own.

    The idea for Diaz’s stunt, Cruise later told Access Hollywood, was all his – and to her credit, the actress agreed to perform it without a double.

    But when it came time for another stunt – in which the two ride side-by-side with a pack of bulls – Cruise admitted he got a little nervous.

    “I always thought I wanted to run with the bulls until I was on a motorcycle doing it, running and getting ping-ponged into walls with big bulls in front of us,” Cruise said, according to Yahoo. “I was just thinking to myself, ‘Do not go down on this motorcycle with Cameron on the back.’”

    The Perfect Lip balm/ Chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Every day I wake up, the second I smile... my lips go crackkk. And i'm stuck with split lips for the day.





    I'm a self confessed lip balm addict. I've tried all the regular balms such as, chapstick, blistex, carmex, burts bees, softlips etc.





    But none of them are quite right, i'm looking for something with the texture of burts bees, but not the annoying tinglyness.





    Has anyone tried Burts Bees Honey Lipbalm? Is that still as tingly? Is it worth a go?





    Any suggestions appreciated!The Perfect Lip balm/ Chapstick?
    Eight Hour Creme by Elizabeth Arden - apply a thick layer on your lips before you go to sleep - it works wonders!The Perfect Lip balm/ Chapstick?
    I don't like the lip balms with menthol. I prefer ';Lizard Lips'; - beeswax and cocoa butter are the main ingredients, and it even tastes pretty good :)
    use vasaline protroleum jelly .. that works better and it can be unscented and flavorless
    Burt's Bees is awesome!!


    so is Carmex
    The lip balm i like the best i haven't been able to find in a long long time it was called Lip Flavors it was by Sweet Breath. If you can find it let me know. Lately I found Lip Vitamins lip balm i got it at Walmart it was on one of the end of the isles. Anything with bees wax is usually great.





    Drink alot of water but give it a few days if you drink alot of water one day it isn't going to show in your lips and skin for a few days.





    Also in the winter houses tend to get very dry and can have a major effect on your skin and lips. Get a humidifier and run it at night in your bedroom.


    Lip Balm and chapstick are only a temporary fix, being well hydrated will fix the root of the problem.





    I hope this helps
    Nivea makes a lip balm now. It doesn't tingle and I find that it works just as well as something like Blistex Lip Medex.


    Also try vaseline... a ton of people I know recommend that over anything else.
    I don't like Burts Bees still, it smells weird and yup it does tingle!!





    I like any lip balm from Bath and Body Works. There is a really good one called ';Einstein Lip Theory';, i really recomend it and it costs around $3.50.





    Another one I like from B+BW is from their Spa range, and it is Shea butter. It costs around $4.00 and its superb.





    I hope this solves your problem. If it gets bad, go to the Pharmacy at CVS, and they will rec. something
    You cant go wrong with Vaseline, its cheap and works wonders for your lips, you can also use it at night on your eyelashes (a bit) it keeps them conditioned.
    You should try exfoliating your lips with a soft-bristle toothbrush or damp washcloth before applying lipbalm.





    My favorite lipgbalms are Philosphy Kiss Me and Smith's Rosebud Salve but I don't think those are really the texture you're looking for!
    Petroleum jelly works really well. And if you have a little extra to spend a product from the Signature A Club on the Home Shopping Network works really really well for me. It's called Full, Fuller, Fullest single dose lip plumpers. It is to be applied especially at night. It doesn't plump as much as it just feels wonderful. I really love it!
    I have to agree w/several other people who've answered this question...vaseline petroleum jelly before bed works really well. I also like Burt's Bees and Rosebud Salve but although they're more appealing, Vaseline seems to work better. Plus, it's dirt cheap!
    I use medicated Blistex it works well for me....I've heard of people putting on Vicks Vapor Rub on extremely cracked lips as well.....The object is to apply it several times a day and right before you go to bed.....If these suggestions don't work, you might want to see a Doctor.
    burts bees lipbalm is good also u can prepare that in home itself.





    Apply butter to ur lips, u will get soft and glow lips forever
    Mary Kay Satin Lips
    The Mary Kay Satin Lips set will take care of the problem! You just use the Lip Mask two or three times a week to exfoliate the dead skin cells off your lips and then use the Lip Balm for sure after using the Lip Mask, and then as much as needed.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones Reveals Her Makeup and Skincare Secrets: 'Don't Pick'

    Catherine Zeta-Jones Reveals Her Makeup and Skincare Secrets: 'Don't Pick'

    by Jillian Ruffo @ PEOPLE.com

    When Catherine Zeta-Jones is dishing beauty advice — we take notes. The 48-year-old Feud star just revealed some of  her skincare secrets in a new interview.

    Along with eating well, exercising regularly (tap dancing is one of her go-to methods) and avoiding alcohol, Zeta-Jones relies on a strict beauty regimen in order to maintain her look. One of the most important? “Don’t forget to check your whole body for new and different shape freckles, not just your face, but the bits you don’t look at every day,” the star tells W of the best advice from her dermatologist.

    And her facialist’s advice is a bit simpler: “Don’t pick.”

    RELATED PHOTOS: The Beauty Launches We’re Loving in 2017

    As for the rest of her skincare routine, she relies on three “skincare favorites”: Rhonda Allison Pumpkin E Serum, Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial and Methode Physiodermie Soft Face Biopeeling, and adds that Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream is the most underrated product.

    On a regular day, Zeta-Jones says says she never leaves the house without a small army of products. A “small Mason Pearson hair brush, Charlotte Tilbury mascara, MAC Spice Lip Liner, Marc Jacobs Slow Burn lip color, Clé de Peau Intensive Eye Contour Cream and the foundation. That’s all for now, because the truth is nothing can be done properly in five minutes.”

    But the best trick she picked up from the pros she’s worked with through the years comes from makeup artist Dick Page — who once advised her to “blend well.”

    So if you’re on a mission for flawless skin and makeup, just get your hands on a few of her faves.

    What’s your favorite beauty secret from the star? Sound off below.


    The 2016 Ultimate Hand Cream Guide

    by Becca @ NARCISSISTA.ME

    I’ve come to expect a lot from the $265 billion dollar beauty industry, but when it comes to hand cream I’ve been let down. In the past, my search for soft hands has left me with nothing but greasy paw prints, slimy hand shakes, creepy after feels that sometime ball up, and tacky, overpowering scents.  Not to mention, I’ve been sucker punched on more than one occasion into overpaying for the occasional cult product darling. All without getting the deep quench my hands deserve. Are my standards too high?  I don’t think so.  I believe the act of applying hand cream should be an exceptional experience.  Taking a minute to moisturize your hands is a gesture of nurturing self care.  You should feel fabulous whipping out your balm, looking at it, smelling it and squeezing out the drop of cream no matter where you are.  It should quench and soothe on contact and then discreetly absorb – as if what just happened was only between the two of you. I don’t want to settle and neither should you so I conducted a test drive on a variety of different hand creams – some you may know, and others I’d like to introduce you […]

    A 'Nerdy Eighth Grader' and a Tween Star! Find Out What The Voice's Season 13 Coaches Were Like at the Age of 13

    by Brianne Tracy @ PEOPLE.com

    Long before they were household names and hit record makers, the coaches of The Voice were just your average teens (with the exception of Miley Cyrus, that is.)

    In a clip shared exclusively with PEOPLE, returning coaches of the NBC hit reality singing competition series (premiering Monday night) Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cyrus, as well as newcomer Jennifer Hudson, are celebrating the show’s 13th season by sharing what they were like at 13 years old.

    “I was somewhere singing, I was somewhere dreaming of these moments right now that I’m living,” Hudson says in the clip. “I was the little black girl dreaming up the dreams, sitting on the church steps across the street from my house. That’s what I was doing.”

    Cyrus, on the other hand, had already reached child stardom at the age of 11 with her role as the title character on Disney’s Hannah Montana.

    “When I was 13 years old, I was filming Hannah Montana so I was working,” Cyrus explains. “I know Adam and everyone else will have all these stories of school — I was working.”

    As for Levine’s experience in school at age 13, he remembers being the “nerdy eighth grader” of his class.

    “I was still really into sports. I was really into music, but I was still kind of straddling between the two,” the Maroon 5 singer says. “I was not cool. I’m pretty sure I’m not that cool still, but I’m cooler now than I was when I was at 13.”

    He adds: “Believe it or not, I was a little bit timid. I wasn’t particularly outgoing at the time.”

    Shelton, who is pictured in the video at age 13 with a raccoon and a dog, says he was “pretty weird” at the time.

    “I was fascinated by animals and country music videos,” he says. “At the time there was CMT, and I would just sit and watch it for hours in the summertime. In the middle of the day when it was too hot to go outside, I would watch CMT as much as I could.”

    The Voice premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC.

    How can I stop NEEDING chapstick, lip balm, etc.?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Does anyone else have this problem? What did you do to fix it?





    Whether I use a lip balm or not, my lips get horribly chapped. Sometimes it seems like the lip balm is working, other times it seems like it's actually causing my lips to be chapped. It's gotten so bad that I keep a jar of vaseline on my computer desk, and periodically through the week I have to scrub the dead skin off my lips to get any relief. I have days were my lips feel great, but most days they feel awful. People that my husband works with on base have even commented on how dry my lips seem. It's driving my crazy. I've used some sort of chapstick since about 6th grade, and I'm now 24 and I have no idea how to stop needing it. I've tried to drink more water, but I'm not sure if I've seen results from that. Has anyone tried vitamin e capsules? Do they work, or do they just start another addiction? Does anyone have any suggestions or tips?





    Sorry for rambling on, but I'm at such a loss for what to do....How can I stop NEEDING chapstick, lip balm, etc.?
    use shea butter or palm oil. look up ';alaffia';. they have good products. that will actually moisturize your lips. most oils can only sit on top of the skin. palm oil and shea butter will penetrate and moisturize the skin. you can get that product at whole foods. do not use anything with peppermint oil or methyl- since this dries out your lips. and avoid weird sounding ingredients in general, in addition to petrolatum/ lanolin/ mineral oil.How can I stop NEEDING chapstick, lip balm, etc.?
    drnk plenty of water and have you tried vaseline. it is really good for chapped lips and dry skin. the iventor used to burn and cut his self and he would use vasaline to treat it and he would be left scar free. if it can do that i am sure it can un-chap your lips.
    lots and lots of water. people say using Kiehl's #1 lip balm helps lots too. don't think you can get addicted o vitamins. it is good to add that to your diet though
    Take a daily vitamin.


    Drink lots of water.


    Pray.
    what about vaseline or lipgloss

    What's your favorite kind of lip balm/chapstick? just want 2 know?

    And they even have quizzes on the website, give it a go!









    Clinqiue's All About Lips. It doesn't leave my lips feeling waxy, nor does it have that alchohol/menthol smell. And when my lips are really dry, I can put it on, give it a few mintues, and apply more. It really works well for me. I keep a tube in the pocket of each of my winter jackets and in my glove box!
    my favorite chapstick is...the brand 'chapstick' i like the original


    my favorite lipgloss is bath and body works 'limeade' mmm yummy!=D
    i love burts bees and that cherry flavored camex. you can get those any where. for lip gloss i love beauty rush from victoria secret. NYC has nice kinds too. i like the smells and the way they look
    Beekeeper's Blend! My favorite is the Black Cherry..and the Lavender/Clary Sage/Lemon combo. It goes on smooth and makes my lips feel so soft. You can get it online or it retails in a couple states too.
    Burts Bees.


    It makes my lips a nice pink shade and it moisturizes it really well.





    answer mine?


    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;鈥?/a>
    i really love blistex. any color really. it makes your lips feel cold, which is really soothing when they're chapped. I personally think they work best. :]
    Chapstick - Burt's bees


    Lip balm - Blistex Conditioning Treatment
    Designer Skin Lip Smoothie - in Mandarin Vanilla flavor... so yummy and so moisturizing!
    Burt's Bees in Rhubarb. You can get it at any Walgreens/CVS/Rite-Aid
    my favorite kinds r frozen daquari, cupcake, and chocolate cake from victoria's secret etc.
    mine is celcstial strawberry from smakers.
    Any kind of pink lip gloss, or clear lip gloss. I don't have a favorite brand.
    Bath and Body works - no color, but just the right feel. And it has sunscreen. The smaller tubes in berry are great!
    I'm stuck on Chapstick...good ol' Chapstick....cherry flavored!
    i love rosebud salve! its incredible if you have really bad chapped lips!
    Smackers is cheap and reminds me of lil girls like 7

    Can you use lip gloss as chapstick?

    No,you can't.This is because most lip glosses are not medicated.

    http://www.blistex.com/moisture%20infusi鈥?/a>Can you use lip gloss as chapstick?
    no, the 2 things r completly different. plus if u try to wear lipgloss a lot in the summer it actually makes ur lips drier and look nastyCan you use lip gloss as chapstick?
    Unless it has medicinal benefits, no.
    not rly

    What do you think of Lip -Smacker Chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Childish or cute? Moisturizing or waxy?What do you think of Lip -Smacker Chapstick?
    It has been a long time since I've used it, so I don't remember how it felt. Chapstick is basically chapstick, so if people like the flavor even adults will use the lip-smacker kinds without caring if it is ';childish or cute';.





    Personally I avoid things with certain chemicals/ingredients, so I use things like Burt's Bees and other natural/organic products.

    How to Help Treat A Chalazion

    by Ashley Teague @ Red Apple Lipstick

    By the title of this post, you may be wondering what in the world a chalazion is.   According to sites like Mayo Clinic and WebMD, a chalazion is an inflammatory lump in the tear gland of the eyelid. There are an estimated 200,000 US cases per year and they tend to be more common in adults who also […]

    Whats the diff. Lip balm & chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Whats the difference?Whats the diff. Lip balm %26amp; chapstick?
    chapstick is a brand name, like bandaid.Whats the diff. Lip balm %26amp; chapstick?
    chapstick is usually encased in a cylindrical container while lib balm is most commonly stored in a ';little pot'; -like container
    These may be brand names, but lip care products fall into two basic categories. There are moisturizers which soak into your skin like a hand lotion and there are protectants which create a waxy protective layer that keeps wind and sun from drying away the moisture you already have.
    Chapstick is a brand name for a lip balm they make. Lip balms %26amp; Chapstick do the same job. Just read the labels before you buy. Some are plain, others medicated, some with a hint of color, %26amp; different flavors.
    chapstick is just a brand name,derrrr
    its all the same thing baby
    chapstick had medication in it which heals dry lips, protects from the sun. etc. lip balm tastes good and makes ur lips soft. chapstick is medicated lip balm
    they r the same, jst different names
    vhapstick is just a brand name otherwise its a lip balm i thimk lip balms sorta british and chapstick is more american (in the ways of saying it)





    xxXxx
    i always thought lip balm gave your lips some color and lip balm has i think flavor that makes you wanna lick your lips which is bad. if your deciding between which you should get, it's chapstick...
    Chapstick is a name brand. Lip balm is any product you put on your lips to do the same thing as Chapstick.
    Chapstick is a brand of lip balm. Lip balm is the product itself, sold by many popular brands- Carmex, Chapstick and Palmer's are just some.
    chapstick it helps your lips and lip balm just makes your lips pretty
    don't know but Burt's Bees is the best!





    oh yeah - chapstick is a brand name, kinda like ';kleenex'; is brandname for tissue.
    Well lip balm will dry out faster and is meant for color and shine. Chap stick is for when you want to get rid of chapped lips. If you want long lasting shine and chapped lips help grab some lip-use bees wax. The one with a picture of a man with a bee-catching hat is the best one.
    chap stick is more for chapped lips, lip gloss makes your lips shiny and they smell better =]
    Chap stick has been around longer
    both are bad for your lips.

    What is the best chapstick/lip balm?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Blistex Lip Medex. It is the best, and is even reccomended by pharmaeutics for chapped lips. Its like Burt's Bees, but it works much faster and its cheeper. Try it!





    Even look at reviews





    http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showr鈥?/a>What is the best chapstick/lip balm?
    CARMEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!use itWhat is the best chapstick/lip balm?
    A product called Hemp from The Body Shop. Put Astral cream on your lips each night before you get in bed.
    before chapstick and lip you have to have at least some sort of smmoth lips tip with your tooth brush gently exfloatle your lips with warm water it makes em plumpler and smooth





    but tooo answer your ?





    i use chapstick like the name lol and


    avon cherry lip balm


    oh if you want color use a red chapstick
    Yeah...burt's bees is amazing...and also Nivea Lip Care :)
    i agree, burt's bees

    gap chapstick is amazing. I use it religiously.. only $3.50 a tube!
    blistex!!!!! its nice and soft nd i like the green one but the other ones are good too!!
    Carmex is good =)
    Burt's Bees is def the best! If you're going to be in the sun, then get Burt's Bees lifegaurd lip balm, but for normal weather, just use the orginial product.
    burts bees!
    Carmex

  • 10 “Au Naturale” Ways to Be Beautiful From the Inside Out

    by Michelle @ b spot girls

    As a bspot girl I am constantly searching for the next best thing when it comes to beauty products. I thought it might be nice to step outside of the "b spot beauty bag" and step away from the counters at Neimans and sephora and compile a list of some more natural ways of doing things to make ourselves more beautiful. Not just on the outside but also focusing on the inside. After all, true beauty isn't just skin deep.

    How long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    I recently discovered that my lips are addicted to chapstick and will no longer produce their own moisture. So I decided to quit using chapstick cold turkey so that my lips will start producing their own moisture again. It's been 2 weeks now and my lips are still cracking and peeling and in a little bit of discomfort. Has anyone gone through this as well? Should I keep this up, or should I cave in and put some chapstick on? Oh, and also, I've been putting a little bit of Vaseline on before I go to bed at night. Thanks!How long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?
    Try using burts bees wax lip stuff or blistex spa effects they have a different natural feel that isn't as pore cloging as chapstick. so you might not be as dependant on them and then you can ween off of it fasterHow long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?
    Use some olive oil
    I've gone through it! Your welcome.
    Im just like that. I must have chapstick with me at all times and i use it at least 4 times a day. i dont really know what to do. I suppose using it like 3 times a day for a week. and then 2 times a day for a week. and then 1 time a day for a week and then once every other day for a week. and slowly start using it less and less. Thats my best advice. I really dont know because i plan to continue using chapstick forever and ever ... lol
    Quit and get vitamin e cream.
    I totally feel your pain. I've been there, and I used to apply them every 4 hours. But now I am only still using chapstick before bed. Try not to lick your lips with your saliva or have spicy food. Try to cut it down slowly, not all at once.
    your cheating. so i guess if your trying to quit smoking, you get up and have a ';midnight smoke'; that makes it ok. nope didn't think so. ij agms sjoi dgrjuqnpk
    I have never heard of this!!! I use Chapstick or a variant there of ALL the time!!! My guess would be to wean yourself off of it instead of going cold turkey- rarely is cold turkey the best way to break yourself of any habit.
    If you really want to get ';off'; chapstick you should just grease it with a little moisture cream. But only when it begins to crack again. To avoid getting addicted to moisture cream. This undertaking shouldn't take too long. The body adapts pretty quickly. I wish you the best of luck.
    My dad stopped in 3 days, but we live in Colorado, so it's really dry all the time. Good Luck with your endeavor.

    I've noticed that whenever I put on chapstick, the guy I've been hanging out w. puts on lip balm right after?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    What's up with that?I've noticed that whenever I put on chapstick, the guy I've been hanging out w. puts on lip balm right after?
    Well he either wants a kiss or well you have trained him to do that. im in psycholigy class and well we can train people to do certain stuff when we just do something so probably you got him doing that. cause thats what it sounds like it. I've noticed that whenever I put on chapstick, the guy I've been hanging out w. puts on lip balm right after?
    There's something very subconscious about that. If you lick your lips or even just say something about licking lips, it's very likely that whomever you are with will subconsciously do that action.





    There's one girl I work with that puts on chap stick every three minutes. Every time she does, I do it right afterwords, completely subconsciously.
    lol, guys prolly just dont even think about it til they remeber when they see us do it. but i must say, i've never seen a guy put chapstick on that doesn't look a little ';odd';. guys, you should just do that when you get in your car or go to take a leak o.O
    He might fancy you, Sometimes when someone likes a person they will copy their actions, According to body language experts anyways its called mirroring. Or your just reminding him to soften his lips too lol
    he probably thinks that you are looking at his lips and seeing that his lips are chapped, so yours might be and when he sees that you are putting on your chap stick after you look at his lips then his might be chapped.
    He's either mocking you, trying to bug you, or likes you so much that he must do what you do........love is weird..in a good way.^.^
    Its either a huge coincedence, or hes thinking of doing somthing completely different
    why does it matter, just a coincidence maybe.
    So when you kiss this guy you're hanging out with, he gets a mouth full of chapstick.





    ERRRRR..!!!!
    You reminded him to put on some chap stick.
    Imitation is the best form of flattery.You two must really be in sync!
    you got them excited when you put that on because They think you both are about to kiss
    either he wants 2 kiss u, or u remind him 2 fix his dry lips.
    I think you know what he's thinking! ;)
    they are messing with you or something



    he wants to kiss you :P
    who knows maybe he want to kiss u

    Rolling My Eyes Here

    by Kym @ Stepping Away from the Edge

    Marketing campaigns and materials are carefully designed to connect with consumers on an emotional level -- to tug at heartstrings or trigger guilt; to create hunger or desire; to appear to have your best interests at heart. At the very least, marketers want to catch your eye. Sometimes, though, they just make me roll my eyes. Three instances: 1 - From a tube of Aveeno Positively Ageless Firming Body Lotion we have . . . Shiitake mushroom complex. What IS that? And why would I want to slather it on my body for "firming looking skin in just 2 weeks?"...

    Mother Pucker My Lips Are Chapped! 2016 Guide to Superior Lip Balms

    by Becca @ NARCISSISTA.ME

    Back by popular demand is the 2016 run down on the latest in breakthrough lip salve technology.  Kidding, there is no such thing, but there sure are hordes of new lip balms that have spawned from every corner of the skin care universe.  And who wants to miss out or be the last to know?  Not me, so I’ve waded through the lip balm sludge to bring you the Best Lip Balms of 2016.   Before we dig in, a few tried and true road rules to keep your lips quenched: Saliva is like paint thinner for your lips, so stop licking already. Did you know that your saliva has powerful acids that are designed to break down food?  When saliva hits your lips, that same acid strips your lips of much needed lipids. Gently exfoliate your lips.  My favorite DIY remedy is coconut oil mixed with brown sugar.  Rub this over your lips for a few minutes and voilà you’re flake free. Cucumber.  If your lips are really badly chapped, applying a few fresh slices for 10 minutes will bring immediate relief. Pots are questionable.  Technically you’re supposed to avoid the pots because dipping your finger in and out creates a […]

    Your favorite lip balm? Burt's Bees, Alba, Chapstick, Soft Lips?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    I'm currently looking for a really good lip balm that moisturizes, hydrates, softens, and is overall just good for your lips. So in your opinion, which lip balm is your favorite that you've tried?


    Answers are greatly appreciated!


    Thanks!!Your favorite lip balm? Burt's Bees, Alba, Chapstick, Soft Lips?
    Personally,I love BonneBell's LipSmackers collection.





    But,for the type you're looking for,the best ones are.....


    Carmex (especially in the little white pots with the yellow lids)


    Blistex DCT (in the peachy colored pots)


    Medicated ChapStick (pale-blue wrapper on a white tube)Your favorite lip balm? Burt's Bees, Alba, Chapstick, Soft Lips?
    I'm currently loving Strawberry Chapstick. It's smooth, moisturizing and smells good. There's a little bit of SPF in it, but you'd need more sunscreen if you're out hiking or something. I used Burt's Bees original (the minty kind) for a while, but it wasn't very easy to put on, it was very solid. The Pomegranate Burt's Bees is a lot smoother. I used Natural Ice and Soft Lips, but I've found that products with Mentholatum (which makes the cooling sensation (Burt's Bees does this with mint)) just make my lips hurt and chapped. I had to keep reapplying products with Mentholatum more frequently. I also like the Vaseline lip products; they're very minimalistic so if you have sensitive or very dry or wind chapped skin, it's a good bet.
    Burt's Bees is absolutely my number 1. It's organic, smells great, works amazingly, isn't sticky, is cheap, you can get it almost anywhere, leaves lips smooth and soft, and has many forms: in a tin, in a regular tube... It also has great flavors: original (minty), pomegranate oil (leaves a rosy tint), and passion fruit (SPF 8). Carmex is pretty good, too, but it's not organic and just doesn't have as much variety. Chapstick is a classic, but not the best. Soft Lips and Alba....well...they suck.
    Burts Bees. I love them. AND, they don`t test on animals, which is nice. :)


    The Pros


    -Burts Bees is a well known established company which focuses on the needs of skin care.


    -The products are said to be made of all natural botanicals.





    The Cons


    -There are no before and after photos on the Burts Bees website.


    -There is no clinical research to substantiate the products claims.





    That is from a professional website that wrote a reveiw. So, if you have no care for before and after photos and proven clinical research, then you are just fine.
    I have all three and love them in each special way.


    Chapstick - I usually buy this in Strawberry or Cherry because it gives me a subtle tint of color on my lips while it moisturizes :)


    Softlips - I love the cooling sensation when I use this but I feel this product is a bit cheap because when I twist it back down to close it, its like stuck in place and I have to use my hand to push it down. Either I got a bad one or something...


    Burts Bee - They're really good, I like that they're natural so thats a plus.
    All of the lipbalms in your question are supposed to be very good!! But my lips get more dry and more chapped than most peoples, and so those brands dont work for me. They seem to have no effect for me. The only lip balm I found that works for me is nives repair and protect. It really is the best product, and saved my life!!!! Im sure you'd love it :)


    TIP - Before applying lip balm, brush your lips gently with a wet toothbrush to get rid of flakey bits, and make lips softer


    Hope I helped!! :)
    MAC's lip conditioner. Most people look at it and think it's too expencive, but it is absolutley worth the money and it lasts forever. other chapsticks you have to apply all the time to get the same softness as you do with MAC's.





    Hope I helped:)
    Ever tried Natural Ice?





    It's amazing!!!! It has this awesome cooling sensation when you put it on, and if you get the cherry kind it tastes kinda good. And it stays on, and it works WONDERS for chapped lips.
    Soft Lips all the way!
    I LOVE LOVE soft lips for a cheap alternative.





    but my favorite favorite splurge.. i love to used macs lip tinted conditioners. they are amazing.
    Probably either burt's bees or blistex.


    Both are amazing and make my lips feels so soft! and I like the waxy feeling it gives off too. you should definitely try these ones! :)
    SOFTLIPS! SOFTLIPS! SOFTLIPS!
    Burt's Bees. Hands down.


    The others don't even come close.
    I looove carmex but not the stick the one that comes in that little can you can feel your lips go from dry to moist and it lasts a long time
    Chapstick
    Lypsyl
    BURT'S BEEEEE : )
    I loveeeee burt's bees.


    it leaves a nice minty tingly feeling
    i love chap stick i never go anywhere without it


    but my sister loves burt beee's
    burt's bees is the best! works so great.
    I like Carmex and Blistex!

    Swollen Lip from Chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Last night i found some really good chapstick, so i put it on. Well when i woke up this morning, my top lip was REALLY swollen, and it looks really bad.


    i've put some ice on it, but what else can i do to get it to go down some? i have a family reunion later today, and i dont want to look like this.


    Thanks!Swollen Lip from Chapstick?
    OATMEAL!that should do it.just rub alittle on your lips.





    Hope that helps!Swollen Lip from Chapstick?
    Ice makes it numb which makes it swollen so takes some over the counter medicine and it will probley go down! Also it could been a allergic reaction in the chapstick so take a allergic reaction pill! I'm not sure what type of allergic reaction pills they have but go to a pharmacist and ask them also stop using ice trust me.
    try taking some advil or tylonal but keep the ice on it!

    What is the best MOISTURIZING lip balm/chapstick for intensly DRY lips?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    Try Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer. It has PABA-free sunscreen protection, SPF 15, %26amp; you don't have to keep re-applying it. I've used it for years. It has no taste, no smell, %26amp; it doesn't make you break out.What is the best MOISTURIZING lip balm/chapstick for intensly DRY lips?
    I love Arbonne chapstick - you have to buy it through a consultant or online though. It's around $8, but it is THE best chapstick I've ever used.


    I also absolutley am addicted to Aquafina Flavorsplash chapstick - you can find it at Wal-Mart or any drugstores.


    I also love SoftLips - it has menthol so it really soothes %26amp; smoothes lips, you can get it at drugstores.
    BLISTEX!!moisturizes immediately!!..or VASELINE..both are inexpensive and are ur solution :)
    chapstick lipmoisturizer w/spf 15 during the day and vasaline at night
    Prada Shielding Balm $38- Thick, highly emollien balm loaded with shea butter. It contains sunscren ilter to soften the lips but also protect from UVA an UVB rays. You can get it at Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, or neimanmarcus.com





    Burt's Bees is awesome you can buy it plain or you can get it in colors, you can purchase it at most stores or at burtsbees.com its $3-$4
    Vaseline
    Blistex or Carmex is a really good brand to heal dry lips and to keep it protected.
    you can't beat the good old original cherry chapstick! plus it smells amazing =] the cherry carmex is good too, and vaseline or aquaphor is an awesome quick fix. good luck!
    BURTS BEE'S! where i live the air can get really dry, and dry out your lips skin, everything. It is the best chapstick i've ever used (and they're other products are great too!).

    Burt's bees....for sure
    nivea has some great lip balms


    including their SOS lip balm


    it is AMAZING


    also aveeno makes a great lipbalm available at walmart and target
    There a few really great and quite inespensive ones out there. My favorites are the Burt's Bees Beeswax lipbalm (that one also contains peppermint and mint extracts to cool and soothe lips as well as moisturize them and freshen breath). I also love the Bonne Bell Lipsmackers in all colors and flavors but particularly Vanilla and Dr. Pepper shades, the Alba Botanica coconut lip balm and the Burt's Bees Strawberry Lip Gloss (it's really hydrating and has a great smell and taste with no color in a clear, glossy shiny finish).


    Hope that helps!

    Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

    Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

    by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

    Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

    Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

    RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

    “Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

    GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

    The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

    Few needs in this world are more pressing than the need to urinate, defecate, sneeze, or scratch an itch. But I'd offer that the need to address chapped lips trumps them all. Whether you're determined to avoid spending your quarter-end review with your boss trying to subtly lick your lips or you're just gearing up for a good old fashioned blow job, having dry, chapped lips can ruin almost anything, and there's not always chapstick around.

    Does kissing bare lips and lips with chapstick on feel different?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    if so, what are the differences between them and which do you prefer?Does kissing bare lips and lips with chapstick on feel different?
    Try both and find out.Does kissing bare lips and lips with chapstick on feel different?
    It doesn't matter . . . I can't think of the last time I remembered to put chapstick on before I kissed a guy. Just be sure to lick your lips first so they aren't dry . . .





    Don't worry about the chapstick.
    I've never noticed a difference. It's fine either way as long as the chapstick isn't too stinky or too glossy for the guy
    Kiss the soft underpart of your arm with and without chapstick and you'll see.
    Kissing chapstick lips is slipperier and a bit more risque', woo woo.
    in my opinion i think with chapstick its way smoother.
    Yes, and it depends on the lips.

    Addicted to chapstick/lip balm?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    A few months ago my father commented on the excessive use of chap stick and told me I can become reliant on it. I didn't believe him until I tried to stop using it and my lips were so dry, they stung. If I loose my chap stick I freak out cos all I can think about is how dry my lips are.





    This must sound like I'm a nutter or a hypochondriac but its driving me mental. if I just stop using it how ling will it take for my lips to make their own moisture again? Will they ever?





    Does anyone have any suggestions on what i can do?





    thank you xAddicted to chapstick/lip balm?
    My boyfriend constantly makes fun of me about my lip balm addiction. There's even a website called Lip balm's Anonymous or something of that sort.





    But chap sticks/lip balms cannot be harmful, but some do fool you. The menthol and mint tingling you feel from certain products actually dry out your lips more. It's just the cool feeling you get that makes you think it's working.





    There's no problem with using lip care products, but if you want to stop, that's also fine. If you get the natural moisture back, try drinking more water. It's a naturally hydrating and does wonders for your body.Addicted to chapstick/lip balm?
    You're not addicted. U just have naturally dry lips like me. I can't live without lip balm too. I feel naked without it actually.


    there is no need to stop using lip balm. it doesnt hurt your body. since u have dry lips, all the more u should keep using!


    there might be external factors worsening your condition, and that might be excessive licking of the lips, hot and dry weather, etc. Saliva actually dries your lips more after it evaporates from your lips. if u have this habit, make an effort to change it.


    your dry lips condition is not likely to change. u can only provide them the extra moisture they need, and that is lip balm! there is nothing wrong/crazy about that!
    i do the same thing at school and these jerks in my class told everyone i ate chap stick which wasn't true i just needed it on my lips. Here is what i think all those people who made fun of me will look back and be like i wish i was hannah because they will have ugly lips and i will have smooth perfect lips. To me its nothing 2 be ashamed of. Since i am 13 i can now wear makeup so i will use lip gloss instead.Anyways i also have a vaseline next to my bed in case i have chapped lips at night.
    I understand where you are coming from because I am like that with my lipgloss. If I don't have on my lipgloss i won't feel right, and my lips will feel dry. I love to have my lips very glossy its more appealing to me. Be proud of liking your chapstick but don't let it take over you.
    Well if you're all freaked out about people seeing you use chapstick, you can buy some lip balm that you put on when you go to bed. And then the next day when you wake up it should feel moisturized for a day.
    I can only tell you that I dealt with the same issue in the past...it isn't any fun that is for sure :(


    I just stopped using it and increased my water intake and they somehow healed back to normal.
    Well, it's not good that your lips before dry and sting, but if you just cut down and put it on in the mornings or before bed I think you'll be fine.





    Good luck!


    ;)
    This is actually something thats been known to happen, there are internet support groups for this. Discuss it with your doctor
    LMAO i have that addiction now.. it sounds really dumb but it can happen! i haven't tried not using it .. idk what would happen
    driiiiiiiiiiiiiink water.
    i have been accused of that too. try and slow down your use. that helped me.
    Its will take a few weeks.





    I luffles chap stick.
    i have the same problem, i say, forget ur dad! if u wanna use chapstick all the time go for it! it's really that bad!
    just keep using it, its cant hurt you!
    You are NOT a nutter.





    I did this to myself unknowingly as well. I found a new flavor the b/f loved and wore it constantly which although it upped my spontaneous kiss for no good reason ratio, it really did make my lips addicted to the balm. I searched for info all over the web about how to undo this bizzarre damage. I found nothing, so this is what I did I hope it works for you.





    You feel like and addict right?





    As silly as it sounds you are, I was, and so are a million others. No matter how ridiculous it seems (I was embarrassed myself, :-P), it is an addiction plain and simple to your body. Your body figures, ';Hell if she's gonna do it for me, why should I do it anymore? You have to fix it like any other addiction.





    Weening yourself.





    It's miserable I can tell you that, I almost gave up a billion times because I am the compulsive lip licker when my lips are chapped or dry which in the end only makes them worse I thought my lips would eventually crack to pieces and fall off but surprisingly they didn't. I started by limiting how often I let myself put it on, and stuck to that schedule. Whilst I was addicted I found myself putting it on every 15 minutes or so, just to make sure they never got even the slightest bit dry, I also got phsically addicted to the feeling of that slick wax coating. So to start I linited myself to 1 application every hour on the hour. The first week was hell, I was watching the clock waiting for my next fix every 1/2 and hour I knew it was time only to be shocked I had to wait another 1/2 hour. Yet after that first week I started getting back to me, getting caught up in work and forgetting to apply. When I noticed this happening I limited myself to every two hours. Week by week I applied less and less. It took approximately 3 months for me to get my lips back in the condition they were before the balm addiction, but I am sooo thankful I did it. I still use balm now and then when I have a serious dry lip problem or I want to feel a bit sexy or polished, but I make sure I use it once and put it away. In a world with so many possible addictions, I am just happy I got passed this one, it's harder then it ever seemed it would be.





    Don't be embarrassed, dont' feel silly, it's a live and learn thing. I'm just happy I went through this so I could help someone else, at least I hope this helps.





    Good Luck.

    How long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    I recently discovered that my lips are addicted to chapstick and will no longer produce their own moisture. So I decided to quit using chapstick cold turkey so that my lips will start producing their own moisture again. It's been 2 weeks now and my lips are still cracking and peeling and in a little bit of discomfort. Has anyone gone through this as well? Should I keep this up, or should I cave in and put some chapstick on? Oh, and also, I've been putting a little bit of Vaseline on before I go to bed at night. Thanks!How long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?
    Try using burts bees wax lip stuff or blistex spa effects they have a different natural feel that isn't as pore cloging as chapstick. so you might not be as dependant on them and then you can ween off of it fasterHow long does it take to wean your lips from using chapstick?
    Use some olive oil
    I've gone through it! Your welcome.
    Im just like that. I must have chapstick with me at all times and i use it at least 4 times a day. i dont really know what to do. I suppose using it like 3 times a day for a week. and then 2 times a day for a week. and then 1 time a day for a week and then once every other day for a week. and slowly start using it less and less. Thats my best advice. I really dont know because i plan to continue using chapstick forever and ever ... lol
    Quit and get vitamin e cream.
    I totally feel your pain. I've been there, and I used to apply them every 4 hours. But now I am only still using chapstick before bed. Try not to lick your lips with your saliva or have spicy food. Try to cut it down slowly, not all at once.
    your cheating. so i guess if your trying to quit smoking, you get up and have a ';midnight smoke'; that makes it ok. nope didn't think so. ij agms sjoi dgrjuqnpk
    I have never heard of this!!! I use Chapstick or a variant there of ALL the time!!! My guess would be to wean yourself off of it instead of going cold turkey- rarely is cold turkey the best way to break yourself of any habit.
    If you really want to get ';off'; chapstick you should just grease it with a little moisture cream. But only when it begins to crack again. To avoid getting addicted to moisture cream. This undertaking shouldn't take too long. The body adapts pretty quickly. I wish you the best of luck.
    My dad stopped in 3 days, but we live in Colorado, so it's really dry all the time. Good Luck with your endeavor.

    How can I treat my chapped lips besides chapstick?

    by noreply@blogger.com (mat) @ lip chapstick

    every time the weather changes I seem to get chapped and pealing skin. Chap stick is not helping its making it gooky looking. Thank you for your answers. Not trying to gross you out.How can I treat my chapped lips besides chapstick?
    vaseline is really good and it stays on longer than chap stick,and try not to lick them it makes it worse,hope this helps give it a try.How can I treat my chapped lips besides chapstick?
    I like Blistek, (green tube). It goes on more smoothly than Chapstick and seems to be more effective.
    Try Carmex.
    Vasoline, blistix, neosporin, bag balm especially put on before bed.
    Neosporin, Burt's Bee's
    You've probably heard this before. Drink lots of water and keep yourself very well-hydrated in addition to using a moisturizing lip balm.





    The Muse
    I find vaseline's the best (you can get it in tiny little tubs). It just looks like clear lip gloss when you put it on.
    Bag Balm works well for me.

    Aquaphor is made specifically for severely chapped lips. You can buy it almost everywhere (Walmart, Target, CVS). If you don't like that type of lip ointment, Burts Bees is great for lips as well. It feels cool and minty on your lips!Lip Balm/Chapstick?
    ermmmm...palmers cocoa butter balm is good, nivea is good, if you're in england i think theres 1 called smackers or something+ i think there is one urban decay one that cools ur lips or somethin + it helps chapped lips
    Try puritycosmetics,co,uk. It is really good!
