Description: SCP-XXXX is 5 tins of "Sunny Creek" brand scented lip balm, recovered by foundation personnel from a goodwill store in █████, Colorado, on April 13, ████ Despite extensive searches foundation personnel cannot find any records of a company or organization going by that name. The lip balm contained in the tins appears to be standard lip balm of a variety of flavors, however all flavors to date have been ones commonly associated with the color red. Flavors are as follows:

• Tin 1: Cherry
• Tin 2: Stawberry-watermelon
• Tin 3: Rasberry
• Tin 4: Blood Orange
• Tin 5: As of yet unopened.

The most anomalous property of SCP-XXXX is its effect on humans and similar animals. The effect only seems to take place when SCP-XXXX is applied directly to the lips of a humanoid creature. After the application the creature, refered to as SCP-XXXX-1, will, over the course of a few hours develop several symptoms. Initaly, the most noticeable is that SCP-XXXX-1 will possess a far brighter and cheerier attitude than would be usual, in addition, those SCP-XXXX-1 interacts with will invariably regard it favorably, regardless of their previous feelings toward it. After around 3 hours these effects will fade, however an addiction to SCP-XXXX will persist. If SCP-XXXX-1 continues to use SCP-XXX, the time until the effects activate will shorten, and the time until effects wear of lengthens.

As use increases SCP-XXXX-1 will bring up a location called "Sunny Creek Lodge" increasingly often. The will usually speak about it in a whistful sense, and in some instances express childhood memories of the location. Foundation Personnel have located a Sunny Creek Lodge, however the owner a ██ year old Caucasian male named █████, claims no knowledge of SCP-XXXX, and further investigations are postponed. More to the point, when told about said lodge SCP-XXXX-1 will not seem to equate it with the one they brought up, nor do they seem capable of forming a connection. After a unknown period of time after the fourth or fifth use of SCP-XXXX, SCP-XXXX-1 will attempt to proceed in a seemingly randomly determined direction, in the fastest method possible. If asked where they are going they will invariably state they are "headin[sic] to the lodge for the weekend". After traveling exactly 6 km from their starting location, they will stop, stand still for several seconds, pantomime opening a door, and vanish.

Odly, after vanishing, any GPS, or other similar tracking devices, will show SCP-XXXX-1's
location to be a small, uninhabited plot of land, just south of █████, Colorado. Any attempts to contact SCP-XXXX-1 by means other than a mobile phone fail, however calling a phone held by SCP-XXXX-1 at the time of its disappearance, will take callers to a automated female voice, claiming to be a representative for the sunny side lodge, will put the call on hold. It is unknow if a call will ever resume as testing was postponed due to [REDACTED].
