Lots of drugstores carry it, but you have to order online to get the SPF ones.
The eggs! When I checked this thread, I was wondering if anyone would mention them.
Can't take credit for them, FrizzBgone told me about them.
I've seen those at Walgreen's, since last year maybe. I've always just passed them by.

I just got the Summer Fruit version of that "egg" shaped lip balm. It's not bad. It doesn't feel waxy like ChapStick, it's pretty moisturizing for a while and fun to apply, but so far I can't tell if it lasts longer than any other regular lip balm.

It does make your lips look soft and smooth, though, IME, even if they're a little chapped-looking when you put it on.

I found some of the EOS lip balm at my Walgreens today!!! They only carry the summer fruit one though. It looks like the website has a cheap flat rate, under $3 for shipping which is great. If I can't find any other flavors locally, I think I'll order a few. So far I'm loving this lip balm!!

I bought two of the egg things. Do they wind up somehow to use up the rest of the balm when the exposed portion is gone, or does it just beome a dip-into pot?

Ha! I have the same set. Maybe. There were two diff sets I saw; cylinders versus squared.

Never mind! I have the 3-piece set that came with a free (4th) balm that's the same scent/flavor as the lip oil. I bought the lip oil separately.

I like the Victoria secret lip balm in 'love' It gives a really nice pinkish color. but I'm running out and have switched to NIVEA kiss of moisture, pretty nice, goes on silky smooth & makes my lips so soft.

Used to love Body Shop Honey Stick but don't think they carry it anymore in Canada (last I checked).

Like the Biotherm Aqua..? whatnot. In pink tube. Still on the lookout for something better though.

I found a new one today, what a winner! Not wimpy slimy, but not waxy thick consistency. Good scent, no bad taste. Again, another with no petro ingredients. But it also has no preservatives. It's a 3-pack for under $2! If you have an ALDI grocery store, you may know I'm talking about LACURA. It's from Germany or England. I got the Milk & Honey set.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick with Vitamin E.

It's not really a "lip balm" per se. But I use it as such.

2nd Choice is my back up Burt's Bee's Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil.

If you go online, the lemon one with the SPF is great. Otherwise, the Summer Fruit (orange one, the names aren't printed on the eggs, I just checked.)

Currently in love with Palmer's Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Lip Butter. As a general rule, if it's made by Palmer's it's probably awesome.

I was just about to say that I wish they made a solid version of the lip butter... I never thought of using the swivel stick as a lip balm though! Sounds like a good idea. Are you sure everything in that is edible? lol

Burt's Bees, followed by a lip gloss or lipstick. I also use products which exfoliate my skin. So, I don't really have issues with chapped lips any longer.
