Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked Philly editor Julie Davis.

Cococare Lip Balm, $1.50 at

Finding myself out of the house without a stick of Cococare cocoa butter lip balm in my pocket is enough to incite a full-on freak-out; hence why I strategically stash emergency sticks around my house and car like a squirrel prepping for winter. There's one in my coat pocket; two in my car; and one tucked into all of my handbags. Nearly empty tubes are relegated to my bedside table, where I scoop out the remnants with my finger. Yes, I am a weirdo.

But this stuff is good. Instead of just being a wax that just sits on your lips, Cococare has more of an emollient quality, which I suppose can be attributed to the cocoa butter. It absorbs well, makes your lips feel silky and moisturized, and has a very light cocoa butter fragrance. My lips and I can't live without it.
