I remember when I got my first Chapstick. It was cherry flavored. I was...hmm...maybe 4. I got it for Christmas, and not only my first Chapstick but also my first "makeup" (though it isn't makeup at all). I was so excited. I called it my "lipstick" and took it everywhere that I could. I felt so grown up. The weird thing? I still have it. You heard me. Nine years later and it's still in my drawer.
You should ALWAYS have Chapstick on hand. My youth leader said if she was going to go to war or something and could only bring 10 things, Chapstick would be one of them. "I've been without Chapstick before," she told me, "and I'll never be without it again." Keep it in your purse, in your bathroom, on your desk, whatever.
What does Chapstick really do for your lips? When your lips are dry, chapped, crackes, flaky, sunburned, whatever -- Chapstick works to improve your lips' texutre, resulting in smooth, lush, soft lips. It can even bring out the natural color of your lips because it is so hydrating.
Lip skin is sensitive and you should try to find something with at least 15 SPF (Sun Protection Factor) sunscreen in it, if you are outside a lot.
Other brands you can try are Softlips & Blistex. Find the one that works for you!
