Ok, so I admit that I used to be a true Chap**** addict. Yes, it's true. I could not function without that little stick of balm in my pocket. My friends and family teased me, yet I just "had" to have it nearby.
I even started to make my own recipe with all natural ingredients and kept getting rave reviews... "It's the best lip balm I've ever used" reviews...yet, I was still stuck on the competition's balm. Try as I might, I could not make the switch. After a day or two of using my own lip balm, I'd find myself sneaking the other. Until my daughter finally said that I really needed to switch. But "Why?" I asked???
Well, for starters, the "other" brand used petroleum products in their balm...ewww. My recipe was all natural except for a pinch of flavoring. So finally I decided to kick my Chap*** habit and use my own. Honestly, I actually had a withdrawal of sorts...my lips hurt, were dry and chapped, and I was just not a happy camper. But then all of a sudden, it dawned on me one day that I was actually leaving the house and forgetting my lip balm in my pocket! It wasn't the first thing I put on when I jumped out of bed in the morning. (Ok, the "jumped out of bed" line might be a stretch) It wasn't something that I used literally a couple of times per hour! Wow! I really was addicted to the other lip balm. And now I was free! How crazy is that?
Now, all is good with the world. I'm using my own natural lip balm which makes my conscience feel better and my lips feel awesome! I'm so glad I kicked the habit. So if you have that nasty little habit, try our lip balms...they come in a flurry of flavors and you really will be doing a good thing for your lips!
And for the record...there really is a website called Lip Balm Anonymous...ha!
