Preventive Measures 101 Lips 101 After Hours Lip Balm

Preventive Measures 101 — Lips 101 After Hours Lip Balm Review

I haven’t been doing empties posts at all, since I am pretty slow at getting through my products and I also generally hate keeping empty packages around for photographing.

But I have definitely been trying to use up more products—which means less product rotation, which I am generally very fond of doing!

Lip balms are one of those products that I always rotate, though, but not so much in the sense that I deliberately choose to use different ones. I just keep a lip balm in many different places, so I end up having almost ten lip balms on the go. For example, I have one at my desk, one in the bathroom, one in the stroller, one in each handbag (and I…uh…I have a lot of handbags), and one at my bedside table.

The two I use up fastest are the ones at my desk and in the bathroom. I most recently finished up the one at my desk, which I got in an Ipsy bag last fall and is by Preventive Measures 101.

Can you believe it? I finished up a product! Huzzah!

They make both a lip balm with SPF 30 and another without, which is the one I received.
