I love my Osmosis lip balm! I should... it's the recipe I made just for me.
There were very few lip balms and glosses that I could use which didn't leave my lips feeling drier than when I put it on. Is it a conspiracy from big business to keep you coming back for more and more and more??? Some people think so. I can't say it worked on me though. It just kept me looking for the perfect lip balm. I had so many almost full tubes of balms that didn't work, that I was able to decorate my Osmosis Christmas tree with tissue wrapped tubes. From trying so many different kinds, I figured out on my own that those with petroleum ingredients were the ones that bothered me the most. I gave up Chapstick a looooong time ago. Recently, Karley at Chic & Green did one of her famous What's in it Wednesday posts on Cherry Chapstick. Go check it out! You'll be surprised at what you learn.
A note on how long my Osmosis lasts me: I have a tube of Honey Butter Balm that I use in my bathroom at bedtime and in the morning... basically just after I brush my teeth. I just got to the bottom of my tube and I've been using it since the beginning of last summer. In addition to that tube in the bathroom, I have a tube in my desk drawer at work and a tube in the car in the winter... I've never used up these tubes. I throw away the one in the car as soon as it's warmed up too much outside to leave it in there any longer. I also have a tube in my purse which is mostly used for kid emergencies. Aside from religiously using lip balm morning and night, I really don't put much on my lips the rest of the day. This hasn't always been the case... Osmosis is just that good... for me.
