No one has said anything or even hinted. People use to all the time when I was trying to heal it by leaving the dead skin on. They would sometimes take out chap stick or feel awkward. When I put burts bees on my lips they look nice as long as I don't over do it. They don't have that glossy look like vaseline. One person with messed up lips (don't think it was EC though) looked at my lips enviously. I had a little bit of burts bees on and I think she was wondering how I was able to manage my lips so well but she wasn't. Anyone know of any other products that don't look glossy and are natural? Since burts bees is made with wax it melts in the heat so I was looking for something that I can leave in my car all year round (please don't say Carmex).
