I have a new favorite outdoor lip balm! Mission Skin Care, a line developed with athletes in mind, has a great sun protection balm that comes in three flavors: Orange, Sweet Vanilla, and Mint.
I gave the orange and mint a try, and boy do I like them! Both are quite tasty (the orange is my favorite) and the balm has a nice buttery feel to it, while still be waxy enough to stay on and provide good outdoor protection. That is a nice texture that is hard to find in a balm—most formulations tend to be either quite waxy, which does last well but feels less moisturizing, or they are more glossy, which looks nice, but doesn’t last. Watch for an upcoming review of an Exuviance balm that has a similar feel.
The size on these is small, which I like for outdoor carrying in a pocket, and at $3.99, the price is low enough that the size is not a concern in terms of value.
This one gets two big thumbs up from me!
