The kiss, minus the camphor - alternatives to addictive lip treatments
We’re on the hunt for the perfect naturally derived lip balm to cure our addiction to Carmex. In terms of ingredients Carmex is not all that bad for you but the camphor and menthol can lead to one serious addiction. While most things in moderation aren't so bad, we are tasking ourselves with curing our addiction. Our first round of products we are trying are from the USA. We will follow up with initial results and options from other countries. Stay tuned for tips on maintaining a sexy, camphor-free pout! We are starting with some of the easier-to0find options.
