How long does it take you to go through a tube of lip balm?
Me? One month. Which I did not think was excessive (mostly because when I lived in Utah it was more like 2 weeks) until I asked my dad how long it took him and he said 6 months...maybe longer. And everyone in my family nodded their heads and said, "That's about right." Like they were monks who had taken a vow of chapped lips.
My lips have always been very prone to chapping. Most childhood pictures of me include the tell-tale red ring around my mouth, thus making me look like a freckled Chinese toddler who has escaped from clown school. And that one tube has a lot of territory to cover - my lips are not demure. And I like a lot of coverage. But six months? Is there some kind of ration going on that I didn't know about?
Just writing about lip balm rationing makes me want to stick my lips in a jar of Vaseline.
Also, what is your preferred balm? I am a Burt's Bees girl. Ever since Chapstick changed their formula, which they refused to own up to when I harassed them by phone even though I could smell that it was different and it made my lips break out in cold sores, thus making me look less like a clown school escapee and more like a woman of the night. You're really going to go against my nose and my many, many years of faithful usage, Chapstick? Really?
