Yes To Carrots Lip Butter

Darlene Ryan is the author of the memoir, A Mother’s Adoption Journey, as well as three young adult novels: Rules for Life, Saving Grace and Responsible. Her fourth novel for teens, Five Minutes More, will be published early in 2009.

Growing up my mother insisted eating lots of carrots would mean I’d always have perfect eyesight. I’ve been wearing reading glasses for years.
In retrospect I should have been more skeptical. This is the same woman who told me that if I ate all my sandwich crusts my hair would get curly.
It didn’t.

I didn’t end up with 20/20 vision—or a head full of bouncy curls--but I have discovered carrots are great for soft lips, thanks to Yes To Carrots lip butter. I’ve tried dozens of kinds of lip protection, everything from chocolate flavored balm, to sticky gloss that acted like a magnet for every bit of dust or dirt that blew by, to a cream that was created to protect horses’ feet.

Did you know many lip balms contain phenol which can actually make lips drier—one of the reasons you feel like you need to keep applying lip protection. Yes To Carrots lip butter contains beeswax and shea butter and other natural ingredients to protect lips from drying out and chapping. Mint and Citrus are my favorite flavors—fresh with no medicinal taste or smell.
You can find Yes To Carrots lip butters and other products at Walgreens and Target, or at Shopper’s Drug Mart in Canada.

As the weather gets colder I’m saying Yes To Carrots a lot more. (I’m still waffling on the sandwich crusts.)

I told my husband to eat his crusts so he'd have curly hair. He refused. Now he's bald.

Serves him right.

Bald? I can end up bald if I don't eat those danged crusts? Lorraine, you aren't in cahoots with my mother, are you?

Love the story and since I work for Yes To Carrots, love the mention of the product.

As a thank you, I'd like to to send you some free samples so you can eat more carrots (and other vegetables, since we also have Yes to Cucumbers/Tomatoes)

Here's the form

Let me know if you have any questions.

And thanks again!
