Looking for the best balms, salves, and butters, one tube, tin, or tub at a time.

Eucalyptus Lip Relief

I have an unfortunate tendency of buying things I wouldn’t otherwise consider when I’m stranded at airports. This is why I own memory foam eye shades, one of those bean bag neck pillows, and this tube of Eucalyptus Lip Relief.

The day I bought it, I was not in need of lip balm (I probably had at least three different options already on my person). I was simply looking for a little entertainment while waiting for a flight and buying an $8 tube of balm seemed as good as any in that moment.

Despite not actually requiring it, this little tube has become one of my preferred balms. It has a nice consistency, wears well, and the eucalyptus makes it feel pleasingly therapeutic (I have always been partial to medicated balms. It dates back to a childhood attachment to Mentholatum. More on that soon).

I also like how it works as a balm to all your chapped parts, not just the lips. I’ve been known to dab a little on my nose during cold season, or on my cuticles if I’ve been doing a lot of dishes. It works beautifully in all applications.

Details: Comes in a .5 ounce tube. Costs $8.

Disclosure: I bought it.
