My name is...and I'm addicted to...

I ran out of lip balm yesterday. I know, I know. You are thinking no big deal.
For me it is a Big Deal. Pucci shift dress at Off Saks for $39.99 - big deal. (True story to be told at a later date.)

So, there I was in Sephora - lips parched from moisture deprivation - in the checkout line, gripping the last two in the store. Glory be.

Cashier: "How old is your baby?"
Me: "Errr...I don't have any children."
(head swiveling around like an owl, making sure there were no mini stragglers about...)
Cashier: "Oh, this is baby stuff."
Me: "Right. But, I use this as lip balm."
Cashier: (rather loudly) "Reeaallyyy?? Isn't it for a baby's bottom."
Me: "No, not specifically."
Cashier: "That's wild. How did you know to put it on your lips??!!"
Me: "Because it says you can on the tube."

Swipe my rewards card and give me my damn balm before I have a meth-head freak out.

Warning: Once you go down this road, you can never go back.
Mustela Hydra-Stick, the crack-cocaine of lip balm.

If using it on my lips is wrong, then I don't wanna be right.

Oh God, I love the way the Mustela stuff smells.

I WORSHIP this stuff. I used it all the time when my kids were babies. Still do for dry cheeks and lips. It is, hands down, the best diaper rash stuff out there. Boudreux's Buttpaste has got NOTHIN on Mustela.

I too am a lip balmaholic. I have 6 tubes near at hand at all times.
Always on the lookout for a better product, I tip my hat to you. Sephora here I come.

Ooh, this is good to know. I too am a balmaholic & in need of a new fix, so off to buy this I go.

OMG I love Mustela! When my first son was born I loved the way he smelled after his bath. They make really good products.
