ChapStick Overnight Discontinued?

Just wondering if you know why Chapstick stopped making  ChapStick overnight lip treatment?  Does it have anything to do with the ingredient Dimethicone and is this harmful? Thanks Pat

ChapStick Overnight

ChapStick Overnight

Chapstick Overnight was designed to be taken at bedtime and it’s product use was described as: “Nourishes and conditions lips with a long lasting nightly moisture treatment. Contains 8 different moisturizers - glides on easily/angled tip. Helps prevent and temporarily protects chafed, chapped or crackedlips and helps moisturize and condition while sleeping.”  Yet another attempt by the Balm companies to keep your lips held hostage by their products now 24 hours a day.

As for Dimethicone, it is described as having side effects such as “burning, stinging, redness, or irritation may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.” So, while in theory this product has been declared “safe” you may still need to see a doctor. Doesn’t sound like a harmless ingredient.

It does appear that this product has been discontinued. A post by ChapStick on Facebook back in June 2013 indicated the product was still available.  But it is no longer listed on the ChapStick website.  Perhaps the product didn’t sell. Or perhaps our side won a small battle against the Balm companies who will not be satisfied until every single person is using regularly.

    I’m definitely addicted to Chapstick, but my problem is I don’t want to stop. If I don’t use it, I become extremely uncomfortable and can’t think about anything else. I make sure I always have it on me. But it bothers me that I’m like this, and I worry about what it would be like if there were some kind of event that turned our world upside down… e.g. zombie apocalypse, WW3, massive electricity outages… anything that disrupts distribution and availability of goods. I would suffer. There’s something wrong with that. It will take more to actually drive me to the point of wanting to quit, but I’m glad you have this site so I can see that I’m not alone in this and that it is a serious issue for others.

    Denise, we do not help people continue their addictions. Sorry.

    Yeah… um this is not an addiction. Even if you fail to see that it’s not an addiction, you need to treat it as the minor inconvenience that it is. This is nothing of importance. If your life is so trouble-free that you have the energy to give to this, then congrats: you live a very happy, semi-delusional life.

    This website is the essence of first world problems.

    An actual moisturizing lip treatment, if it would exist, which it doesn’t, would prevent lip balm addiction by causing people to not have dry lips in the first place, so they wouldn’t even start.

    A working lip treatment can actually prevent addiction.
