Lip Allergy (EOS lip balm)
Posted January 11, 2012on:
Few days ago, i decided to put on some lip balm before heading to bed. I don’t usually have this habit as i don’t like having my hair sticking onto my lips the next morning. That kind of greasy feel.. eww. now, i regret it so much.
I picked up my favourite EOS lip balm and headed to bed immediately. The next day, i woke up with swollen and red lips, burning and itching! I was like ‘oh god, allergy again!!?’. I had an allergy reaction on my lips 3 months ago but i didn’t know what caused it. I thought it could be the food that i ate, or the lip products that i’ve used. Now, im pretty certain it’s due to the eos lip balm. And the next moment, the eos lip balm is in my bin, without any hesitation. I really hate how my lips looked and feel now. It’s super dry and flaky, with tiny bumps, red and burning. I ate durian and it burnt me more. -.- But i still carried on eating it hehehe!
I told my friend about it and she saw some others had reactions to this eos lip balm too. So, im not alone. I’m thinking i might be allergic to beewax, cos i tried burt’s bees lip balm before and felt that it dried out my lips too… hmm..
But thank goodness, it’s healing now. But it still dries my lips and i can feel the tightness surrounding it, i feel so much older now.
i want to be able to put on my favourite lip tints soon!!
