Dr. Pepper lip balm by Bonne Bell.
For a while i was into softlips - i love the way menthol feels on my lips. I would literally go through one a day. It was almost as expensive as a smoking habit!
I used to joke that i was addicted... and maybe it was true. Some people smoke, some people have lip balm. Either way, it's an oral fixation of sorts.
Over time, i've learned to use less. I discovered that some balms actually had alcohol in them which would dry out the lips after a while making you feel like you needed more. Mentholated chapsticks have somewhat of the same effect, in my opinion... Now i only use mentholated balms for a treat now and then as opposed to the regular use they used to have in my lifestyle.
Dr. Pepper was there.
If I could have a lifetime supply of Dr. Pepper lip balm by Bonne Bell... my life would be complete.
I carried around a few (hundred) of these tubes for at least 8 years running. I would freak out a little (ok, a lot) if the store was out of this flavour and would resort to buying the three-flavour pack (with A&W root beer and cherry 7up!) just to get to my precious.
Needless to say, i had a few lonely tubes of Cherry 7up and A&W around. What can i say? I couldn't get enough. I'm not sure when my love affair ended... but i find myself dreaming Dr. Pepper dreams every now and then. Maybe it's time to look for it online? A little reunion might be in order!
