I received ChapStick® MixStix™ in order to facilitate an honest review.
ChapStick®, the brand that is so popular it has become a generalized trademark. It played a part in the Watergate scandal, with hidden microphones being hid in the tubes. It’s also one of my favorite brands of “lips”, as my children called it when they were little.
History of ChapStick®
Dating back to the early 1880s, when a physician by the name of Dr. Charles Browne Fleet, from Lynchburg, Virginia concocted the first batch of ChapStick® as a lipbalm. Many would never guess that it was not initially successful. In its early years the handmade product looked like a wickless candle wrapped in foil. It wasn’t until John Morton paid five dollars to buy the rights to the product in 1912 that ChapStick® gained popularity. Mr. and Mrs. Morton melted the pink ChapStick® down in their kitchen, cooled it and sliced it into sticks. It was so lucrative the profit was used to found the Morton Manufacturing Corporation.
That CHET ChapStick® logo, created by Frank White Jr., also of Lynchburg, VA, in the 1930s for a flat fee of $15, is still in use today.
Through the years, ChapStick® was acquired from Morton Manufacturing to The A.H. Robins Company and the lip balm evolved from a regular stick to more and more varieties.
As a child growing up in the 1970s I recall vividly the commercials featuring Suzy Chaffee (aka: Suzy ChapStick®). That was back when the ChapStick® 4 flavored sticks hit the shelves.
In 2009 ChapStick® was acquired by Pfizer.

I’m a lip balm junkie. My girls are too. I smother my lips in the stuff. The new ChapStick® MixStix™ are like a smorgasbord of flavor. It’s an all-in-one product that not only hydrates lips, but packs three different flavors into one stick!
