While hiking in the backcountry, we recently had the opportunity to try out Balmshot lip balm personally, and beyond the great look of the shotgun shell packaging, we were impressed with how this chapstick functions. Balmshot’s tight fitting cap snaps on and off, ensuring that it never came off in our pocket, and even after a full day of hiking, the smooth metal base prevented the chapstick from creeping up and making a mess. We loved Balmshot’s mint flavor, and the SPF 15 protection has been great for our active lifestyles. This is the great stocking stuffer solution for every person on your lengthy holiday list. “What the heck are you putting on your lips?” you hear your friend say. No, it’s not buckshot; it’s BalmShot. If you’re the kind of person that loves attention, you’ll get plenty from using this, but the story behind the design tells us there’s a lot more to it than that. The founder and product designer developed lip cancer in 1983 due to his outdoor lifestyle and frequently sunburned lips. After surgery to reconstruct his lips, lip balm became an everyday essential to protect and moisturize them. Unfortunately, most lip balm dispensers were unsatisfactory in design, so he set out to make a dispenser that won’t turn in your pocket or uncap easily. And being an avid outdoorsman, he wanted a design that reflected his passions. The solution came in 2010, in the form of a shotgun shell. The smooth metal base won’t turn in your pocket and the cap secures tightly so you don’t get a gooey mess in your pants. You can get BalmShot in classic, cool mint, pink and pink camo. All options offer solid UV protection in the unique shotgun shell casing. If you’re serious about the outdoors, or just want a cool dispenser, check out BalmShot.
