How much toothpaste do you get on your lips...

While brushing? I get a lot and figured it's because it's hard to avoid (my lips are slightly big) but it may just be that I'm a messy brusher. I've always let it go while in the process, and cleaned up the foam with my toothbrush afterward.

I'm thinking it could be why I struggle with dry lips though, and going with sodium lauryl sulfate free toothpaste may be in order too.

    Hmm....are you sure it's toothpaste? Have you had your rabies vaccination?

    I sometimes get none; sometimes bunches. I always brush my teeth first, then wash my face. I have dry lips too, but I have dry everything but I don't get toothpaste on everything.

    I brush my lips with my toothbrush after I brush my teeth. If my lips are dry I'll put lip balm or vaseline on them before I brush. I can't use Colgate or some others at all because it dries out my mouth really bad.

    Lol, that actually took me a second.

    If I'm in a hurry I'm not as careful at cleaning up the foam and I may just swipe my lips and around them with the side of my hand, thus not really getting it off. We need that bag over head smilie back.

    Generally my skin is okay moisture wise so it has miffed me.

    Just realized I really missed a smilie opportunity here...

    I don't get much on my lips but I have share time not having to constantly spit while brushing.

    I've been using SLS free toothpastes for years.
