Kissy Kissy

I'm obsessed with lip balms and I'm not really sure why. I could delve into my childhood and tell you that I grew up in the high desert where it was very hot, windy and dry in summer and very cold, windy and dry in winter, and I licked my lips so dry I had a purplish brown crusty ring of dried skin around my mouth, making me look like a clown, and my beloved second grade teacher, a nun, was so worried about this condition that she invited me to stick my finger into her ChapStick that was worn down below the point where you can even twist it up anymore... so I was kind of reluctantly digging my finger into a plastic case that I don't think had any more lip balm left in it, worried that I was using her last drop and sort of embarrassed to be singled out in front of my classmates... but I'll hold back. Ha!

I've had everything from the classic Chap Stick to the jumbo size Bonne Bell Lip Smackers (love!) to a $32 colorless Chanel balm. One of my favorites are ones made in Washington with local honey and beeswax, and my bestie has been experimenting with making her own balms, too.

I'm currently enjoying Eos Smooth Spheres lip balms. I have four of them, one in each bathroom, one in my desk at work and one in my purse! I like the cute round shape and the candy colors, and the packaging has a kind of matte, rubbery grippy texture to it that I like as well. They contain 95% organic ingredients. I love these things!
