It's In The Lip Balm Baby! From Repairing a Scratchy Disk To No More Nasty Razor Nicks!

I love chapstick, lip balm or lipstick as my daughter calls it. I keep a tube in my purse at all times for my lips but never imagined all of the versatile uses that lip balm can help you with!!!! Check these handy tips out that the little tube of chapstick/lip balm can do for you!

It’s In The Lip Balm Baby!

Hate Those Nasty Nicks From That Razor? Me too so lip balm to the rescue! Unfortunately I am always in such a hurry while shaving that I am constantly nicking myself with the razor (and have the scars to prove it). Instead of putting on a band aid that really does not help much, all you need to do is dab some lip balm directly on the gash-it’s smooth waxy base seals the cut while ingredients like menthol and vitamin E sooth cracked skin!!

Pad Those Puppy’s Paws With Lip Balm On Icy Cold Days-Rub some lip balm on those precious paws- the moisturizer acts as an invisible barrier between the delicate paws and the potentially harmful ice and and snow. The camphor in the balm soothes your pooch’s pads and helps to heal any minor abrasions.

Sayonara Smudges-Achoooo! For some reason when I am putting on my mascara I sneeze and am left with those impossible to get off black smudges. Now all I need to do is grab my lip balm and rub a dab under my eyes. The oils in the balm gently cleanse the delicate under-eye area.

So Long Static and Flyaway Hair-My girls think it is hilarious when one of us has hair with static that stands on end but if you don’t, all you have to do is rub some lip balm on your fingertips and then work your fingers through your hair. Nice sleek hair is yours!

Repair a Scratched Disk With-Yes, You Guessed It! Lip Balm! Rub lip balm on the flawed area and buff with a clean soft cloth. The waxy consistency of the balm gently polishes away the scratches so the movie can play without skipping!!!

Now, if you don’t have some lip balm I bet you will run out and get some!!! A great stocking stuffer too~!!
