I’m A Lip Balm Hoarder: Giveaway Edition

I’m not gonna lie – I’m addicted to lip balm. I freak out a little bit if I don’t have any with me. I’ve tried going naked before, but after two days of cracked lips, I just can’t stand it. So I hoard lip balm

This is my current stash of Nivea lip balms and glosses.

Nivea Stash

Actually, that’s not totally true. This is my current stash that I have in my vanity. It doesn’t include the lip balms I have in my purse, my car, Levi’s diaper bag, my desk at work…well, you get the picture.

Jason knows about my habit and is cool with it. He didn’t even bat an eye when I excitedly showed him what came in the mail: FIVE tubes of Nivea’s new Kiss of Olive & Lemon moisture-rich lip care.

The thing I love about Nivea is not just that they make awesome products. It’s that they get it. They know people like me – people that need to have their lip moisturizer with them everywhere they go. People that shudder at the thought of being anywhere without their lip balm. People like me that don’t just want multiple tubes, they need multiple tubes so they can stash them everywhere they might need them.

Nivea Prize Pack

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they included a $50 Visa Gift Card with the samples they sent. Like I said, they get it. They know once your lips are quenched, you might need to stock up on other goodies. They’re awesome like that.

Speaking of awesome, Nivea is doing a cool Million Moments Of Touch date night giveaway on their Facebook page, where you can enter every day to win a daily date night.

Nivea Date Night


You can also get a coupon for a free Nivea lip care product just for uploading a photo on their page.

Wait, it gets better.

Remember how I told you Nivea is really awesome? Right. They knew that it wouldn’t be fair for me to hoard all the lip care products for myself, so they generously provided a gift set for me to give away to one of my readers, including the $50 Visa Gift Card!

Where do you stash your lip balm?

Disclosure: Nivea sent me my own gift set (including gift card) because they know I’m a lip balm hoarder and already have a million of their products. Oh, and maybe also because they wanted me to confess share my thoughts with my readers. As always, all opinions and giant lip balm stashes are 100% my own.


  1. Kristy Bodle says:

    I have them all over the place. I guess they are mostly in my purse, Closet, makeup bag and the drawer next to my bed.

  2. Bethany K says:

    I leave lip balm everywhere! My husband gets a hair up his butt sometimes and collects all of them and put them in my basket on my nightstand. Then when I sit down to watch tv and can’t find my balm I ask him if he has seen it and he tells me he put it away! I have told him over and over that it was in it’s right spot but he just doesn’t get it!

  3. In the diaper bag that doubles as a purse. 🙂

  4. Linda Heyde says:

    Purse, bedside, chair side, kitchen. It is a must have there when I want it addiction.

  5. Ashley Watson says:

    I keep lip gloss everywhere! I love the little egg shaped ones. They are hardest to lose.

  6. Lip Balm Soul Mates!!! I’m quite the addict as well. I have them in my drawer next to the vanity, one in my jewelry box, a few in the medicine cabinet, a few in my purse, next to me bed, on my dresser, in my purse, in my desk at work, next to the couch…ummmm….where did I forget? At one point, I had over 50 lip balms….OOPS!

  10. Kathy Nitchals says:

    I am also a lip balm hoarder/stasher. I cant go to the store without getting a new one. I have them in every drawer, purse, coat pocket and a few places I dare not mention for fear of the kids or hubby seeing this. Somethings are just better kept secret! 🙂

  11. I keep two in my wallet, at least one in each of my purses, a couple in my bedside table, several in each bathroom, one or two in my car, one in a little catch-all dish in my kitchen…..

  12. In my locked medical cupboard

  13. Melissa S says:

    In my nightstand, tucked in the top part of my rocker recliner, one in every bag I own, always one in my pocket (and I won’t wear pants/shorts that don’t have pockets)…..the best place is the lip balm spot in the cup holder of my Town and Country! I told Hubby that van was made just for me!

  14. I leave one in every bag, and one by my bed

  15. Gosh where don’t I have them? In my car, purse, make-up bag and husbands truck. I’m sure i’m missing a place:0)

  16. Bethany M says:

    In the purse! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  17. I confess, I too am a lip balm addict (I seem to also be turning my son this way as well – whoops!). Where do I stash the balms…the “joint” junk drawer, MY junk drawer (it’s more organized), my purse, my nightstand, the bathroom (several places), the desk, the glove compartment in our van, the little extra storage space in our van, the console in our van, the diaper bag, the side table in our living room, my son’s nightstand. Basically anywhere that I am always within only a few feet of being able to grab one immediately!

  18. The better question is where *don’t* I have it stashed. There is several tubes in the bathroom, two in my purse, one on my desk, and two inside my bedside table.

  31. I’m glad to see I’m not the only lip balm addict! Currently, I have one in the side table next to my work space; one in my purse; one on my night stand and the remaining 6 in the bathroom. Once baby #3 comes, there will also be one in the diaper bag. Oh, and the one in my purse, usually ends up on my desk during the work day. 🙂
