I was playing around in my lipgloss stash this weekend and found not one, but two tubes of C.O. Bigelow My Favourite Lip Balm. I never usually repurchase something like lip balm (unless it's changed my life like this one one or this one) because I have such an A.D.D.iction to them.
I remember picking this one up when Bath and Body Works had one of those 3 for 2 type deals, and after deciding that I'D over-backed-up (though...is there such a thing?) my Mentha Lip Tints, I'd take the impulse plunge and attempt something new. Of course, that almost never happens =P.
Thing is, this was about a year ago -- I thought I liked this balm, but apparently somewhere along the line, it just dropped off my radar. I reapplied and I realized why. This is exactly that sort of liquid-y, non-sticky balm/gloss combination that I hate. I think it was thicker when I first bought it, but maybe with time it lost a little molecular integrity? No idea. Either way, it was an adequate moisturizer, but nothing impressive or spectacular.
Either way, I wiped it off quickly with my fingers and absent mindedly rubbed it into my cuticles. A couple minutes later I realized that it had completely absorbed. Just for luck, I tried one more time.
A new cuticle oil? That's what I call shopping your stash.
