6 Lip Balms With SPF for Perfect-for-Summer LipsJuly 03, 2019
Just like hair elastics and bobby pins, lip balms have a knack of disappearing even though we own approximately 1,000. But now that we’re midway through summer with the sunburn to prove it (you can never wear enough sunscreen, kids) you need to be able to locate at least one lip balm with SPF at all times. Whether that’s a tinted lip balm that looks like a lipstick, a dermatologist-recommended formula or the highest SPF you can find, be sure your favorite doesn’t go missing like the rest of ’em.As a general reminder, no matter what level of sun protection factor you choose, you need to reapply at least once every two hours to keep your lips safe. Feel like you put too much product on your lips? Add even more — you can never have too much. Keep reading to learn more about six of our favorite lip balms that contain SPF.
Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment is a lippie you’ll instantly become addicted to. The coconut-oil-infused formula comes in six shades, including one that’s untinted. The tinted versions give lips a healthy flush of color and loads of glossiness.
You’ve probably come across Maybelline Baby Lips before (if you don’t already have a few in your lip balm stash). Besides using it for hydration and sun protection, you can apply this lip balm as highlighter on your cheekbones to create a natural, dewy-looking finish.
No matter the time of year, Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm is always clutch for hydration, but the natural mint and shea butter formula is soothing and cooling on your lips, making it ideal for hot days on the beach.
If you’re looking for a lip balm that will give your lips a little something extra, this vegan and cruelty-free formula from Pacifica leaves a pretty shimmer. It’s perfect for having on hand all summer long and will complete your no makeup-makeup look.
For the highest SPF, try Supergoop Shine On Lip Screen. You can either wear it on its own for a glossy finish (without any stickiness!) or use it as a top coat for your favorite lipstick.
