A Trio of Treats :: Lip Balm

I cleaned out my purse last night and among the loose change, escapee Tic Tacs, and old receipts, I discovered not one, not two, but three lip balms in the depths of my bag. It hasn't been terribly dry or blustery this winter so there is really no excuse for the excess balm I've been toting around.


All three are excellent at hydrating my smackers though. My mom gave me a package of Philosophy products for Christmas including the peppermint Kiss Me Very Emollient SPF 20 Lip Balm in red ($12), my friend Kayla introduced me to Smith's Rosebud Salve ($8), and I've used Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 ($7) for years.

I've also got a reserve of drugstore goodies (ChapStick, Carmex, and Lip Smackers) in my makeup drawer. Now that I think of Lip Smackers, has anyone spotted the Girl Scout Cookie Lip Smackers? I'm still waiting for my cookies to arrive.

What's your favorite lip balm?

Where do you get the rosebud salve? sounds great and I am a fool for anything 'rose' related :)

I know that they have it at Sephora. The link I posted to it is from Urban Outfitters. By the way, I received my new nightstand from UO today. Love it and thanks for your input!

Funny, I've heard people use the rosebud salve for diaper rash too. What makes a baby's butt even cuter? Smelling like a rose, of course.

n cooper, shhh... you weren't supposed to tell anyone that's what I really use it for! :)

I'm equally obsessed with lipgloss/chapstick, Allison! I love finding forgotten ones in the bottom of brushed-aside purses! My current obsession: Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment (I use the rose color). It is AMAZING. Lasts so long and your lips feel like they're swimming in a pool of lotion:)
