One of the leftover symptoms of last year’s sick is the flare up of my psoriasis. This means my lips are constantly dry. The best treatment I have found is the above cocoa butter lip balm. Which I can only ever find at local CVS stores.
I started with just one tube and then found that I couldn’t ever find it. So, I started stashing it everywhere. Every purse, every car, office, nightstand, luggage, random kitchen drawers … you know the drill. Then, one day it disappeared at CVS. I was devastated. Then they would show up on shelves there again and I would buy another 5 tubes. And then they would disappear again. Then reappear on some random counter somewhere.
I would guess in the past year since I discovered it, I have gone through 10 tubes of this shit. At least, really. I have also gone through the “OMG, I can’t find the yellow lip balm in the stores, what will I do?” thing like 5 times. The stress is just too much for a $2 tube of lip balm.
So, I just ordered 50 tubes of the stuff online for $40 with a variety of bulk buying discounts and free shipping coupons. I’m basically one step closer to hoarding.
