    I make my own, a combination of beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter. Same thing I use for lotion bars.

    I use Burt's Bees. I carry it with me during the winter... Not usually during the summer.

    I usually carry Swedish Armed Forces lip balm (Försvarets hudsalva) in my jacket although I rarely use it. Its great, can be used for everything. I once used it on a bike with stubborn brakes as well as for cooking, putting it on my feet and even superficial wounds to give some degree of protection. Not the best thing to do but hardly the worst. Oh yeah, it can be used to get an incredible shine on combat boots, far better than regular shoe treatments that were issued to us.

    I also have carmex in my bedstand, I use that maybe once a week but its fine. Like the smell of it. :)

    I think she bought up like a hundred thousand acres, or something crazy like that, just to stop people from hunting on it.

    Likely did a lot of other offensive stuff too.

    (Not from Maine, never been there, just recall reading something about it)

    Good luck to her trying to patrol all those acres. Now instead of legal hunters who make sure the animals don't suffer, I'm sure the place is overrun with poachers who don't give a darn at all about the game they kill.

    I carry a tube of Nivea Essential.

    During summer, I sometimes move over to Nivea Men Active Lip Care because it doesn't 'melt' as much when it's hot out.

    Ha! My dad used to say chicken poop is the best for chapped lips. Doesn't do anything for the chapping but sure keeps you from licking your lips.

    From the BDN Maine.

    The online interview was reported by Forbes and contains a lot of other, though similarly offensive, statements.

    Usually Chapstick, or Blistex. Whichever is on the racks in the checkout line at one of those places with Mart in the name. I've used it a bit more this winter with the longer (and colder) stretches of weather we've had. But a tube still usually lasts me a really long time. AAMOF, I don't think I've ever finished one completely. It either gets lost, or winds up in the washing machine....

    I normally use Burts Bees, Stuff that isn't made with beeswax seems slimey to me.
