Anything that feels oily on my skin - especially on areas close to any ofrice my body has - makes me feel absolutely awful. And lip balm is no exception. It's just a phobia, though - I don't actually get any bad physical reactions.

I can't handle lotion, but I like lip balm so long as it never has to touch my fingers. And it can't be as goopy as vaseline or it's a no-go. Stick or nothing.

Ever try beeswax lip balm? It's nightmarishly like vaseline. Unfortunately it's the only lip balm I can use for my severely dry lips.

This, lip balm is a must here during certain times of the year. as is lotion for your hands. The temp gets well below freezing and your hands crack. I can't stand lotion, but lip balm is fine. Especially when it a good flavour.

i hate that oily feel. i like there to be friction between my fingers and such. i cant do lotion, the feel of it drives me crazy. i hate having to deal with vegetable oil, as somehow, that always seems to get on your hands. have to instantly wash my hands ofter that.

never really used lip balm though. use carmex for the occasional chapped lips, cold sore.

My lips feel really dry and chapped if I don't use lip balm, so I like it.

You gotta have the Carmex, that stuff works wonders.

I mean it makes for a nice snack so who am I to complain. I always keep a few sticks in my car and when I get hungry I just munch one down.

I like rubbing that stuff all over my body, it's like having a new clean layer of skin.

I am alright with lip balm. I don't like it when it's sticky, but outside of that, it's decent enough. I have a cinnamon bun flavoured one, though it tastes maybe 80% like cinnamon buns, and 20% like sugar. :P

I like Avon's Care Care Deeply Lip Balm with Aloe as it isn't hard like ChapStick and aloe is good for skin. For drey skin I use Curel Regular as it isn't greasy feeling or I use Rubit Dry Skin Balm and it works great and the tin fits in a pocket.

For some people it works great but for me it just dries my lips out more eventually so I dont use it.

Cinnamon bun flavored lip balm? That doesn't sound too bad.

It's pretty nice. Made by a company called Philosophy. Though apparently it's an inconsistent product...like, 1/4 of the reviews say the product smells like plastic :S Mine smells a bit like sugary cinnamon buns. It's pretty nice :) (even nicer when it's on sale)
