Test Lab


I'll admit that when ChapFix, a new lip balm designed specifically for men, landed on my desk I was a tad skeptical. But it didn't take long before I was showing the clever innovation to grooming-geared colleagues. The patented low-profile case is shaped similarly to a thumb drive so as not to bulge in the pockets of your jeans or jacket. (The matchbox-shaped container also prevents it from rolling around, should you set it down on your desk or dresser.) The perforated side grips and beveled cap will make it easy to take in and out of pockets come glove-wearing weather. And that's just the outside. Inside is an all-natural formula of beeswax, aloe and vitamin E that comes with an SPF 15 and a fresh, minty taste. But what I really like is that the balm itself isn't sticky or shiny.
