    Default There is nothing fluffy about men using lip balm!

    Who's with me on this?
    Why are men so afraid of using moisturising cream or lip balm.
    I mean seriously they would rather walk around with cracked lips then use a lip balm. I'm not talking about one with colour or that's shiny.

    DD dad came to pick her up and his lips where so dry they looked like they where going to bleed.. Yuk.. I went into my room and gave him a spare lip balm to use and he told me off! So I told him to keep looking like an idiot then.

    Men need to look after their skin too.
    No one wants to kiss a man with cracked lips. Guess that's why he can't find a girlfriend.

    DH uses a lip balm with sunscreen in it. think its cause he was brought up snow skiing all the time so face sunscreen and lip balm are essential.

    DD1 loves using daddys 'lipstick'

    Haha DF used to hate lip balm... I got sick of him whinging about his cracked lips 2 years ago so I went out and bought a twin pack of the strawberry chapsticks. I gave him the Chapstick and he told me off for getting him a pink one and refused to use it.

    Next shopping trip I got him the plain one that had black wrapping and gave that to him. He tried it then told me he liked the pink one better.

    Yesterday I got in the car and he had purchased a new Chapstick for himself... Glad to see he still uses the PINK Chapstick and I still tease him about never using a pink chapstick. *rolls eyes*

    Yeah DF had shocking cracked lips and came to me for advice. Wouldn't use a stick so I told him the blue blistex pot, it worked but he hated the heat/stingy feeling so he bought himself a Chapstick which he uses every now and then. He admitted to using my cherry red body shop lip balm before he came to me for advice
    Then this afternoon before work he looked in the mirror and asked if I had any moisturizer for his face, so I passed him some which he used. He has also admitted to using my face wash on the odd occasion.

    But he isn't all that afraid of products, he styles his hair every day (he won't even check the mail unless his hair is done) and some might call him a bit of a metro or pretty boy.

    Ahh, I love him my sexy man.

    Lol my dh uses the strawberry chapstick he carrys it rnd everywhere nd calls it chappy. I just need to point out he's the blokeyest bloke who is afraid of all things fashionable lol he used to surf lots so I guess that's where the chapstick came from but it prevents the aweful cracked dry lips we all hate kissing

    Pfft. DH used lip balm (Chapstick) before I met him. He now uses the little pots of Vaseline lip balm. He also uses face wash & moisturiser. I don't see the big deal. Nothing worse than dried up chafed lips. On anyone. Ew.

    My DH has used lip balm since before we met. He's not a fan of dry lips

    Only annoying part is I swear I've washed 50 of them. DH leaves them in his pocket and I never check. Oopsie!

    Motorcycle riders with openfaced helmets often use lipbalm out of necessity.
