And not complaints about my computer being gone.
It's the ChapStick thing. I'm having a hard time letting go.
Last week I stopped in at The Body Shop to pick up a few things. (And to spend my $10 "birthday gift" coupon they sent me in the mail.) I was drawn (like a moth to a flame, Erin!) to the lip gloss section. I ended up with these two.
Note: These lip glosses are pricey. $10 each. (Although I just noticed that they're on sale on this week for $7.50 on The Body Shop website.) I used my coupon to get one of them, but then couldn't decide on just one color, so ended up with both. I hate when marketing ploys work on me like that.
Anyway. These are more gloss-like than balm-like. They add a nice shine to your lips without feeling heavy or gloppy (although initially it seemed like it would be gloppy; I was pleasantly surprised once I actually wore it). It lasts a long time, feels light after you've got it on, and doesn't have a flavor. Not being a lipstick-wearer (ahem), I like the hint of color I get from the peach-ish one (not detected by Tom at all). These are just nice glosses if you're going for a little glam!
And then there's this one. . .
As you remember from my ChapStick Challenge, one of my new favorites is the Aveeno Essential Moisture Lip Conditioner . . . sadly, discontinued by Aveeno. I've been snapping them up whenever I see them in stores, though, and I even ordered some online. I have quite a supply, and they should last for awhile. (As you can see, I'm mostly finding them in the Clearance aisles these days.)
And, lastly, I give you a Tale of a Satisfied Customer.
Brian was home for his spring break last week. When he arrived, he complained about a pretty intense crack in his lip that "just wouldn't heal" and claimed "I've tried everything."
I handed him a tube of this. . .
(Because, of course, he hadn't tried everything.)
His lip was greatly improved in one day; completely healed in two.
He took the tube back to school with him,
Hurray for the ChapStick Challenge! But, really. I need to let it go.
