    For those who don't want to look unmanly when using Chapstick, there's always the short cylinder container that can be used instead. Dip a finger, apply to lips. I just prefer regular Chapstick. For those truly worried by what others might think . . . EDC a girlfriend. Watch out though as those can be very expensive to maintain. ;)

    As long as it's not glossy, peach or Strawberry flavor I'm sure it's safe to say you can keep you Man card. I spent too many years in the sandbox sweating and freezing to not carry chap stick. I would just leave it in the car but it melts. Therefor it goes in one of my edc kits that I take with me.

    Now that I think of it, it's been a good summer so far and I haven't needed any. knock on wood. I don't knwo how anyone else's get but it can get down right painful. Thankfully I've never had much more than a paper-cut split before. I've seen some dudes walking around and it's almost like they have a facial disease.

    Chapsticks are indeed skincare essential particularly under certain weather conditions. Thinking from a health/medical slant, I've added other items to chapsticks with age: various sprays, drops and tablets. Not looking forward to a EDC life-support system.


    With best regards, Kat

    I like Carmex, but anything else is better than nothing!


    Once, when I had really dry lips and no chapstick in sight for the next two days I took drastic and disgusting measures: I sueezed a few blackheads and used them as a replacement...worked just fine....

    Some one wants to call in question my manliness because I have chapstick!?!?!?!

    Well to heck with them, I'll take my man bag (murse) and hit them with it then!

    That'll teach'm!

    I just admitted I'm 34 when I started wearing a fanny pack to the gym. :0P

    I spend a lot of time outdoors in all kinds of weather. Chapstick is an essential.

    I keep a tin of this in my truck's console. I think it works better than Chapstick. Plus, in Florida, Chapstick melts in a hot parked vehicle where the Blistex's screw-on lid keeps the balm from leaking out.

    Hmmm. I seem to have earwax in abundance. Maybe there's a market for it.

    Blistex DCT (SPF 20) in the bag. I use it less than once a week on average, mostly when the weather is in seasonal change but I keep it handy.

    My mom was/is convinced that ear wax heals pimples. Like I was going to wander around high school with ear wax spread all over my face.

    I am addicted to Burt's Bees lip balm. Seriously, I have made several midnight runs to the store for it. Now I just keep a couple spare tubes at the house.

    Always do in winter, almost everybody does too with the cold windy days, it's pretty much a requirement.

    Didn't use to, but over the past 2 years I've started carrying lip balm during the cold season, usually blistex. It's pretty nice to have but annoying when it gets turned and extends from pocket carry, not sure how to avoid it besides putting it back in my pocket a certain way.
