Summer time is formally right here as is sunscreen season, although it’s technically ALWAYS sunscreen season, there’s something about experiencing precise warmth that actually places you within the temper! One space that I usually neglect to use sunscreen to is my lips and although I’ve by no means been been burned on my lips, every time I am going out on walks, I attempt to cowl them up with one thing as a lot as doable as a result of a lip sunburn simply sounds painful! Fortunately, Burt’s Bees has a brand new tinted lip balm (yay!) that additionally has an SPF 30 (double yay!) and are a mineral sunscreen formulated with 19.5% zinc oxide. I’ve by no means used a tinted lip SPF product earlier than and I believed it was cool that I’d have the ability to look a little bit extra dressed up but nonetheless being shielded from UV!
Coming in two shades, the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms promise to guard, nourish and add a splash of color to your lips with a nano-free zinc oxide system. This can be a mineral sunscreen for the lips that additionally makes use of beeswax and shea butter to hydrate and seal in moisture. Every tube can be made with 31% plant-based supplies!
The 2 shades are wildly pigmented and whereas they appear clean on my arm, as a result of they’re a mineral sunscreen, they do really feel fairly thick and I do not assume they apply as easily as the outline says they need to. In my thoughts, after I first utilized them I instantly thought “She thick!”
There may be additionally a really robust considerably chalky cherry-like scent which I’m not an enormous fan of, however I additionally perceive that what I’m most likely smelling is the components record with none added perfume.
Whereas the shade “Wild Peony” is supposed to be a rosy trace of pink, I discover it too pink/gray for my pores and skin. I used to be not anticipating these to be fairly as pigmented as they’re and on the one hand, it is good to know that these lip tints can ship related ranges of pigmentation to lipsticks!
The shade “Sienna Rose” seems higher on my pores and skin tone, however I’ve to be a little bit extra cautious when making use of as it’s REALLY apparent should you go exterior of your lip strains! What I’ve discovered the best is to kind of, *dab dab* this shade on my lips after which I get a touch of color that matches me higher.
Closing verdict: Sure, I stated there was a powerful scent and a thickness to the applying of those lip balms, however I take a look at these extra as mandatory protecting sunscreen with a bonus of getting the tint so I’m able to stay with these points. I simply hope that there are completely different shades sooner or later that may fall someplace in between these two shades that is perhaps a little bit extra pleasant to a wider vary of pores and skin tones.
