Sarah Palin, take note: on average, a woman whom regularly wears lip stick will consume two pounds of the stuff over her lifetime, often ingesting ingredients that are harmful to herself and the environment.
So I'm switching to an all-natural lip balm I made myself. Unlike some commercial brands of lip stick, which contain petrochemicals and parabens, an endocrine disrupter, this lip balm is made of almond oil, beeswax and vitamin E oil. It gets it sheer red tint from alkanet root instead of harmful lead acetates or coal-tar dyes.
Wanna try some? Leave a comment on this post by Friday, September 19, and you'll be entered in a drawing to win a tin of lip balm.
