We’ve been known to squirrel away a ChapStick® or two in every conceivable hiding place, so we’re never caught without. But there are times when we can’t easily reapply. (While skiing, for example, it’s much more important that our hands hold the poles.) That’s why we’re in love with this new innovation from ChapStick®. Clinically proven to hydrate lips, the eight-hour balm also comes packed with antioxidant CoQ10 and healing vitamin E. With just one swipe, our pout can withstand an entire day on the slopes (or at a desk, dreaming of said adventures).
Let me tell you a story.
I have a bad lip-licking habit. Because of this, I actively seek out lip balms that work well for me and give me the most moisture possible. I also have an unnatural obsession with vanilla (not quite to the level of my "demonic taco lust" as my husband calls it, but pretty up there). This little tube of lip balmy goodness felt like it had floated down here gently on silvery, sparkly angel wings, and landed there in a cardboard box with my name on it, just for me.
I went searching for more.
I checked every CVS, Walgreens, and even riteaid in sight. I checked Target and Walmart. I looked online, but soon came to grips with the fact that I just could not justify paying a shipping price for chapstick. It just was not going to happen, no matter how glorious.
Then I went on a mini-retreat with my coworkers in Southwest Florida. It was after midnight, and I realized I left my sleeping pills back at home in North Carolina. I could go find a substitute at a grocery or drug store, but I flew down there and didn't have a car. But ah ha! The coworker I was bunking with DID have a car, as luck would have it. I persuaded with her to let me borrow the car so that I could find sweet release from this crippling insomnia.
Tired, cranky, and on unfamiliar streets in a town I'd never been in before, I found a Walgreens that was only open because they had extended hours for Christmas shoppers (because you buy all your x-mas gifts at drugstores, right?). Wearily, I dragged myself into the store, and found the items I needed. As I was slowly shuffling out, I saw it...... . .
There it was.. just hanging there on a hook like it was nothing. Like this was just a normal, everyday occurrence. The ChapStick Hydration Lock with that slight, sweet vanilla taste and the moisturizing powerhouse of a formula I had been searching for.
"These South Floridians have no idea of the treasure they have here. They probably take this for granted while I hang out back in the mountains of North Carolina with the ice and snow and bears and chapped lips that go along with winter in non-tropical climates," I thought to myself.
I gathered half a dozen boxes off that tiny hook that night, and happily carried them to the counter with a spring in my step. The cashier remarked on how much I 'must love that product.' She has no idea. How could she.. blessed every day with that salty, temperate climate that doesn't make your lips crack and ache. I do love it.
I'm happy to report that now, two years later, I live in a tropical climate, myself. And my local Walgreens carries this specific ChapStick variety on the regular.
One my top 5 favorite chapsticks!! Very moisturizing and lasts! Love this!4
I love this chapstick. I am obsessed with using chapstick and lip gloss. But I am happy that this one stops me from constantly applying throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this product!5
This feels like the more expensive lip balms and has good protection for chapped lips.4
I am a huge Chapstick fan to begin with, but this is such a step up! Creamy, not sticky, and lasts all day!5
I'm an avid ChapStick user and like to have it with me at all times. This new ChapStick did go smooth and I enjoyed the flavor. However, I didn't feel like there was a huge point of the difference from the regular product.4
I've bought this product twice since receiving it in my Birchbox. I love love love it. The smell is calming and soft and it instantly smooths my lips without drying them out.5
This is a great Chapstick keeps lips extra moist and hydrated. Even the husband was ok with using it cause it had no flavor.5
This ChapStick was great. It stayed on my lips for a long time and really was hydrating. I have bought this again since getting it in my Birchbox.5
I love this product! So happy it was included in my BirchBox! I love how moisturizing this is, and the smell is amazing. It really does hydrate your lips for what feels like forever! I have purchased this twice since getting it in my BirchBox! LOVE!4
