Finding myself out of the house without a stick of Cococare cocoa butter lip balm in my pocket is enough to incite a full-on freak-out; hence why I strategically stash emergency sticks around my house and car like a squirrel prepping for winter. There's one in my coat pocket; two in my car; and one tucked into all of my handbags. Nearly empty tubes are relegated to my bedside table, where I scoop out the remnants with my finger. Yes, I am a weirdo.
But this stuff is good. Instead of just being a wax that just sits on your lips, Cococare has more of an emollient quality, which I suppose can be attributed to the cocoa butter. It absorbs well, makes your lips feel silky and moisturized, and has a very light cocoa butter fragrance. My lips and I can't live without it.
