Ask Belle: SPF Lip Balms
Aug 9, 2016
I love my Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm, but it doesn’t have an SPF. Do you have a recommendation for something similar (similar price would be awesome, too!) but with sun protection? I’m trying to be better about taking care of my skin – lips included! 🙂
Thank you so much! BN
I’ve tried a lot of SPF lip balms. And I have a few favorites, it all depends on your preferences.
For something fun, try eos lip balms. They come in the cutest containers, smell amazingly fruity, and have SPF 30. They’re also water resistant for up to 80-minutes.
For something powerful, Banana Boat makes an SPF 50 lip balm. It’s the strongest one I’ve found that doesn’t feel like an oil slick.
For something tinted, the Neutrogena Revitalizing lip balm wears more like a lip color with an SPF 20.
Here are a few more choices with at least SPF 15. (As an aside, am I the only one who used to be totally addicted to Softlips chapstick during the 90s?)
