Kiss My Face Lip Balm

I have been working hard on using up my chapstick stash that I have in the house, and when I made it to the last stick I realized how much my husband hated it, and how I just could bare it's lemongrass flavor, so I tossed it, and picked up a stick of Kiss My Face Vanilla Honey Lip Balm with SPF 15. Interestingly, it does not smell or taste close to Vanilla- at all! It smells and tastes more like chocolate cake, and it's really thick feeling. The stick doesn't get soft in your pocket like some do, but then it also feels like it just sits on top of my lips and doesn't absorb.

On a scale of 1 to 10 out of all the chapsticks I've tried out, I give this one a 2. And considering I also tried one of their deodorants and it didn't really seem to work for me, I'm not sure I'll be trying anything else from this brand.

(Ingredients: Canola Oil*, Beeswax**, Lecithin*, Beeswax, Cocos Nucifera Oil*, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit, Honey Extract, Titanium Dioxide, Lysine, Tocopherol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Royal Jelly, Propolis Wax)

I have a really hard time with any chap-sticks. So now I use Shea butter for my lips. Some Chap sticks have orange essence in them, which makes my lips tingle. I get sock monkey lips if I use anything with orange in it now. They tend to float over my lips and my lips are very dry under the chap stick. what's up with that? I have had better luck with Blistex creme for moisture, or Shea butter.
