You can now get Speaking Moistly lip balm in Canada
Remember Justin Trudeau's "speaking moistly" comment? Well, it turns out that the rest of Canada does, too — including a company that named a lip balm in honour of the Prime Minister's viral moment.
In case you need a recap, Trudeau accidentally let the hilarious phrase slip when he was discussing physical distancing rules at a press conference outside of Rideau Cottage on April 7.
"What I have heard from medical experts is that the most important thing is for people to stay home," Trudeau said. "It protects others more than it protects you because it prevents you from breathing or speaking moistly on them."
Oh man. Trudeau says, on wearing masks, that his understanding is it can be helpful as it prevents you from "breathing or speaking moistly" on others.— Rachel Gilmore (@atRachelGilmore) April 7, 2020
"Ugh what a terrible image."
MOISTLY. Our prime Minister just said "moistly," folks.

Last month, Painted People Tattoo Company launched a speaking moistly lip balm that retails for $4.99 — and it's pretty much every Canadian's dream collector's item.
The company's description of the lip balm says that it's "an homage to our Canadian roots, and our fearless Prime Minister Trudeau speaking moistly to us Canadians."
And in case you weren't sold already, the lip balm is made from natural, locally-sourced ingredients, including Canadian beeswax, coconut, cherry and apricot kernels, and a hint of rosemary.
In true Canadian spirit, the Toronto company is generously pledging to donate two dollars from every purchase to the North York Harvest Food Bank in Ontario.
However, the company's website warns that the lip balm is in "high demand," and it seems they're not exaggerating; more than 1,000 lip balms have already sold, per Narcity.
With sunny days fast approaching, there's never been a better time to invest in a speaking moistly lip balm to keep your lips, well, moist — especially when it's for a good cause.
