I know most of you probably think about putting sunscreen on your face daily but do you ever forget your lips? I know I do. I normally wear a lip gloss or lipstick which doesn’t contain any SPF. Sun Bum Sunscreen Lip Balm contains an SPF of 30 and comes in six delicious flavors, which will help ensure you don’t forget to add them to your beauty/skin repertoire!
The flavors include Key Lime, Coconut, Banana, Mango, Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate. They contain aloe and vitamin E as well as cocoa butter. They are vegan, PABA free, petrochemical free and gluten free.
They come in a little portable twist-up tube, much like a Chapstick. The smell and taste are soooo delicious! In fact that kind of is a downside for me because they are so tasty you cannot help but lick your lips. The ones I got are Key Lime (my favorite) and Mango. Yum!
The consistency is super lightweight and thin feeling. They kind of feel like a gloss almost and do have a nice shine. I actually don’t feel like they sink into my lips very well though. My favorite lip balm, which I’m sure you all know by now is Jack Black Lip Balm, definitely feels more like it sinks in and heals my lips. This tends to sit on top of my lips. However the good thing is these are so lightweight that I think applying them under a gloss or over a lipstick would work well. You can’t really do that with the Jack Black ones because they are thicker.
Whatever lip product you prefer, make sure you always wear SPF on your lips because it is an area that isn’t uncommon for cancer spots!
You can find these on their website and in certain stores and they are $3.99 each.
