Unfortunately you usually don't realize this until you are parked on the couch with the Boppy, baby, toddler, and laptop all piled on top of you. And where is your water? Naturally just out of your reach.
When faced with becoming slightly dehydrated for the time being or having to move the whole operation to get that errant water...well, I'll let you decide which option typically wins. For me, the first sign that I am dealing with dehydration is my lips. They start bothering me - they get chapped and dry. And I'll be honest - if my water is out of reach, usually any sort of lip care product is even further away.
BUT I am striving to improve my track record when it comes to keeping these things nearby. And right now, my go-to in lip care is the amazing new Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner.
Carmex sent me a sample to review and I was a little skeptical. I am pretty picky about my lip products. They can't be too dry. They also can't be too gooey. There's nothing grosser than having sticky lips for twenty minutes after lip gloss application, am I right? But this new lip care - I am pleased to admit - is fantastic.
First off, let's talk about the scent. It has an all-natural orange flavor, which tastes exactly like a Creamsicle. Can you say delicious. Hubby normally hates most of my lip products but this one even met his approval. This conditioner has a matte base, which makes it a go-to product when you want to wear something to soothe your lips before applying a coat of lipstick. No smearing! And the best part, it is super smooth and silky - not sticky or gooey.
As I'm writing this - I am sitting on the couch balancing all of the things a nursing mommy needs. I even have my water. And right at the top of the list is my Carmex Lip Conditioner!
Okay, fine. Technically the lip conditioner is hidden under my leg because the toddler keeps trying to eat it. But it's within reach. So I get points for that, right? :)
