March Madness with a Twist


March Madness is upon us, but I don’t usually get swept up in the hysteria that accompanies the NCAA basketball championship season. I politely decline the invitation to join the office March Madness pool because the only brackets I understand are punctuation marks. But even I could get into March Madness with Twist & Pout’s University Collection.

Twist & Pout is a lip balm contained in a unique orb-shaped container that comes in a variety of different designs. You twist the orb apart to reveal a rich, citrusy-tropical flavored lip balm that upon first glance resembles petroleum jelly. But Twist & Pout lip balms are petroleum-free. Instead they contain beneficial natural ingredients such as beeswax, Vitamins C and E, shea butter, kukui nut oil, and aloe vera. And they have an SPF of 20 to protect your lips while you’re outside rooting for your favorite team, or playing basketball yourself (you go, girl!).

Twist & Pout’s University Collection represents ten NCAA schools:
University of Alabama, Florida State University, University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Kentucky, University of Michigan, Louisiana State University, University of North Carolina, University of Tennessee, and Texas Tech. There are two styles of Twist & Pout for each school: the standard edition featuring a white container with the school’s logo, and the “gleam” editions (above), which are more colorful and decorative.

Twist & Pout soothes and moisturizes my chapped lips and tastes great. The Twist & Pout University Collection retails for $7.00 (for the balm) and $9.50 (for balm and clip) and are available at,, Dillard’s store locations and other specialty retailers nationwide.
