A year or so ago, long before I started this blog, I thought about how much fun it would be to have a product blog and talk about items I had purchased that were awesome, awful, or somewhere in-between. That blog idea never happened, but I want to go on the record now about my favorite lip balm.
I stumbled across Badger lip balm in the “novelty” section of Ulta months ago. I was charmed by its mascot and its slogan: “a little magic for your lips.” At five bucks a pop, it isn’t cheap. But the packaging won out, I bought a tube of the cool mint flavor, and I haven’t looked back. Overnight, my cracked and peeling lips were healed. I had previously tried Burt’s Bees, ChapStick, Alba, Blistex, and bizarre dollar store brands (X-Men lip balm, anyone?) to no avail. I almost felt like they were making the problem worse. But oh, my little Badger! He truly has put his magic in this lip balm! Don’t get me wrong, I’ll pay a dollar at the Dollar Tree for most of my household sundries. But with the money I save buying generic allergy medicine and generic wheat thins, I think I can afford a pricey lip balm.
