Yes, you read that right. This review is about a lip balm called Chicken Poop. A disclaimer on the balm : Contains no poop.
I first bought Chicken Poop Lip Junk three years ago. Ever since a visit to Massachusetts in 2006, my lips haven’t been the same. I am constantly needing to apply lip balms, lip gloss, anything to keep my lips moisturized. I have a bin full of balms and rotate through them depending on my mood. Burt’s Bees has been a favorite for years as I love the cooling effect it provides, but it just doesn’t hydrate. I still keep my Burt’s Bees on hand, but my go-to balm for the past couple months has been my Chicken Poop.
I found Chicken Poop by searching online for natural lip balms. I am allergic to almost everything, so I have to be careful and read ingredients. I have incredibly sensitive, and sometimes dry, skin (eczema survivor right here), and I’m allergic to almost everything soothing to the skin, including coconut oil. RIGHT?! How is that even possible? I am also sensitive to 100% pure aloe. Hi, my name is Cherilyn. I have weird toes and eczema and I’m allergic to aloe vera and coconut oil. *sigh*
So, I was searching online and came across the Chicken Poop website. I decided to buy one. It has a light scent, almost smells like green tea. It doesn’t have peppermint so there isn’t a cooling effect, but it’s super hydrating and feels really good on my lips. I wear it all day when I’m not wearing lip gloss, and I never fail to smear it all over my lips before bed. I had an annoying smidge of dry skin smack in the middle of my bottom lip that even with exfoliation, I could NOT get rid of. It was driving me insane. I’d pick it off and it’d reappear. I started using my Chicken Poop and I haven’t had the dry skin patch since.
One tube of Chicken Poop is $4. They also have a Chicken Poop- Outdoors. I bought two, but not a fan because it’s white like sunblock. I may use it outdoors when kayaking, but I love my Baby Lips lip balm by Maybelline because it has SPF and is clear in color.
If you have dry lips, go to Chicken Poop’s website and find a retailer near you, or order a tube online. It’s great lip balm, and a great conversation starter when someone notices your lip balm is Chicken Poop. 🙂
