It IS the Balm...

There are few things that I can convince the Mr. to indulge in. Okay...even as I type that, I feel as though I'm fibbing fibbing fibbing (remember what that's from? Nevermind). Truth be told, there are few things that I can get him to indulge in that he'll admit to. As for what that includes, it's lip products (he's always caught somewhere between Carmex and something too difficult to re-order), and skincare. Christmas threw me for a loop, when it hit me that everything he really needs, he pretty much has. What was I to get him, to add a little extra giving to the season?

The scene: Pre-Christmas, and I'm walking through Nordstrom. Something catches my eye, and I know it only too well. It's Jack Black's Intense Therapy Lip Balm, but in a 3-pack. I was first introduced to the stuff a few years ago, when a friend's husband pulled it out of his pocket at dinner. I asked to try it, and then the next thing you know we were passing it around the circle. It was so minty and sort of masculine, in a way that even the kinds of guys who sport lifting belts at the gym (and moan and groan all super loud so that you know they're lifting HEAVY weights) could not be embarrassed for owning. So after all that nastiness of lip product sharing, he picked up one (which later became 2, 3, 4...) of his own. It was all normal mint flavored until this 3-pack came along. Now he's able to choose from Acai Berry and Lemon Chamomile as well! They're still available, and are packed with SPF25 so you don't have to worry about your lips turning ten shades of darker-than-your-face. It was the easy answer to the guy who has everything. Only thing is, if he doesn't get to utilizing them all very quickly, they will disappear into the black hole also known as my purse.
