I'm so stupid sometimes

In a rush I bought something for my dried out lips. Oddly it made my throat feel like it was closing up and scratchy. I washed it off and found the packaging in my purse. Yup, wheat germ oil. I didn't even think to read it when I bought it. You'd think after almost 10 years I would know better.

Oddly no other reaction than the allergy-ish reaction though.

Anybody have a type of lip balm they like a lot? Preferably that doesn't taste like something (and contain wheat germ oil :rolleyes:)?
