While we may protect ourselves with sunscreen from face to toe, what about our lips? Many of us forget about protecting our lips from the sun’s damaging rays, so I created a list of great lip products with SPF. From things you can find at your local drugstore or nearest Target to Sephora, perhaps you will see your favorites featured here or discover a new favorite one!
EOS Lemon Drop SPF 15 $2.99 target.com
Summer definitely conjures up images of pitchers filled with ice cold lemonade, making this a fitting product for summer. Housed in a spherical container, this lip balm contains vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil to help keep lips smooth with a hint of lemon.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 (Coral) $22.50
I am a fan of Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment because of its hydrating, long-lasting nature that also provides a hint of tint. Coral is my choice for a fun summer color but there are other shades to suit your likes ranging from nudes, pinks, reds and plums. The one deterrent is the price so for me, it’s definitely a splurge item.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25
Although this product is targeted for men, either gender can use and benefit from this lip balm. It’s moisturizing without feeling overly heavy and absorbs fairly quickly, leaving lips soft without much shine.
Soft Lips Raspberry
I used to carry these with me all the time and forgot how much I loved them. True to the name, they keep your lips soft, and with a delicious raspberry scent and green tea extract, not to mention the great price point, you can keep them both or gift one to someone else. Unlike other lip balms, these are encased in a slender tube, making them less bulky and space efficient.
Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 20
Although these are not my absolute favorites, I do like them. They do soften lips (albeit they don’t last long on me) and although the color range isn’t as expansive as the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments, the price definitely allows for multiple purchases.
