This article, entitled "12 Alternative Uses For Clear Lip Balm…And My Results," comes from partner site 719woman.com.
No matter where I am, I always have lip balm. My lips are always chapped so I carry a tube in all my purses, in my car and there are tubes stashed all over the house. And since I always have some on hand, I found these alternative uses pretty interesting and handy. I tried a lot of these ideas and had excellent results.
I did try this trick and LOVED the results! We bought a mirror a couple of months ago (on clearance of course) and it has been sitting in my closet because I literally couldn’t get the price sticker off the glass and kept forgetting to pick up more Goo Gone. I tried the lip balm (I had tried just peeling it and I couldn’t use sprays or water because the frame is covered in material that could bleed), waited the 10 minutes, wiped it off, and every single bit of the sticker and adhesive was gone.
We don’t have a dog so I couldn’t try this trick…..and our cats refused to “go for a walk”, or have their paws rubbed!
I was very skeptical when I read this. I actually added mascara and smudged it a bit to try this out. When I wiped the smudge with the lip balm, it did take it away and didn’t remove my foundation or concealer. Seriously! Now you may get different results perhaps depending on your makeup brand. I had on Mary Kay timewise liquid foundation and Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara.
We have this problem a lot of times with our outdoor lights. As we replace the bulbs, I have been coating them with the balm but I won’t know if it works until the next time they need to be replaced.
I tried this tip on a couple of extra-rough, extra-dry spots I have on my arm….woke up the next morning with them looking and feeling much better than when I just used my lotion on them.
I use (an expensive) eyebrow wax every morning before putting on my eyebrow powder. I actually tried the balm on my brows several different ways. First I applied it with my finger to see how it felt and looked. Even without makeup on, my brows immediately looked well-groomed. Then I coated my eyebrow brush with the balm and applied it to my brows, with a coating of my color. This worked just as great as my brow wax! And since I bought my lip balm for a dollar, it was so much cheaper! I will never buy brow wax again.
I tried this on a velvet handbag I have that I haven’t used because of a stuck zipper…worked fabulously and now I can use it again!
I tried this at the store after trying on a lot of clothes. By the time I took off the last sweater, my hair was standing on end. I pulled out my lip balm, and it did the trick quickly. And there was no sticky mess.
And of course you can always use lip balm…on your lips!
