    When I saw the photo of all those chapsticks, color-coded in perfect rows, I immediately reached for a tube and applied my Smackers Wild Berry.

    I Wonder How Much Wax I Swallow In a Year?

    There was an article in the paper the other day about chapstick truly becoming an addiction. This couldn't possibly be me... I only keep two tubes in my backpack, one in my bathroom, one in each of my purses, three in my room, two in my car, and two in my gym bag. I also have...

    Chapstick

    I started when I was about 12 and I have not stopped ever since. When I was twelve my lips would get chapped a lot. I used chapstick everyday then after a while I became addicted. I had to put on chapstick if not then I didn't feel like myself. Sooner or later I was putting on...

    Chapstick!

    I'm not girly but I am OBSESSED with chapstick. I play a lot of different Woodwind insterments and my lips are constantly getting chapped. I am currently liking Burt's Bee's. I tried EOS but it broke out my lips :( Burts Bee's in Pomegrante is helping me :)

    For people who are not addicted - you will not understand, but to my fellow junkies, I almost had a meltdown!  I was at my relatives, no car, no make up bag/purse - no CHAPSTICK!!!!  Wow - I really need to have more secret stashes ....

    Oh yes, can't live without it. But I prefer Bonne Bell's Lip Smacker. Every Christmas, I buy these set of Lip Smackers (for girls actually but just love the scent) and I use them for the whole year. I especially like the Kool Aid flavors or fruit flavors like grape, strawberry...

    Every Day ... and Touch Ups

    Silly but I use it just like lipstick. I have the medicated kind for when my lips are really chapped. I also keep handy a cherry or vanilla one cause they just fell good. I carry them with me and check in the rear view mirror and elsewhere and do my touch ups as needed. Works...

    My One True Love

    Yes, I love chapstick. But not all chapsticks. I am what you would call a "Chapstick Connoisseur". I started my chapstick addiction as a young girl with just one tube of chapstick. As I grew older my chapstick collection expanded and my tastes in chapsticks developed. I soon...

    I Wonder If They Make a Coffee Flavored Chapstick??

    OK - so I love chapstick and coffee ... so, why not a coffee flavored chapstick??  There have been worse things -- Tomato flavored jello (aspic)  Mac and cheese and ketchup (disgusting)  Coffee and sugar (gross)

    Never Leave Home Without It!

    I hear you.  Chapstick is a seasonal must - when it's cold and dry.  I'm a lip gloss freak too.  My kids don't want to see me cry so they know to assure me that they won't hesitate to use the chapstick I've provided in every pocket.  I can't bear to see...

    to chapstick. I have it in every room in my house, in my purse, in the bathroom, in the car, at work, in my husbands pockets. If I forget it and we are going somewhere, my husband either needs to go back and get it or stop at the nearest store. I buy the economy packs so I have...

    necessarily the brand I like to try all different kinds. I'm pretty sure several people in my family have this same problem (mom and grandma) so I know where it came from. If I go somewhere without one I have to buy one. I mean if it's for a couple hours and I applied some prior...

    Right now I use Qtica Intense Lip Repair Balm.

    Let me tell you, it is thick and lasts for hours. I love it. Most other chapsticks just make my lips peel, but this stuff moisturizes. I only need to use a little and one tube can last for months. It's great. Thank you Qtica.

    Bert's Bees Lip Balm. Best stuff ever. AND if you have a spot that is chaffed or rubbed almost raw you can slather it in the stuff and make it feel so much better. Not to mention that it helps heal it up without the roughened skin you sometimes get after friction burns. Even...
