Lizard Lips Lip Balm

I came across Lizard Lips Balm at an out of town convenience store after I accidentally left home without a balm (how I managed to do that I will never know). So it was a lip balm emergency! I had never heard of it, but Lizard Lips came through. In fact, I found that I love this balm!

Lizard Lip Lip Balm

The balm feels rather creamy, but wears and lasts the way a waxier balm would. It also is SPF 22. The formula is petroleum-free with Aloe, Shea Butter, Sal Butter, Vitamin E, and Grape Seed Oil. It also includes Comfrey and Sage—a couple of interesting ingredients.  I ended up with the vanilla flavor, which is light–just enough to taste it without it being overpowering. I then noticed online that they have other flavors including tangerine and raspberry, which I would prefer. So now I am left looking for those!

This is one of the best new balms that I have tried in a long time. I will be keeping an eye out in the drugstores for more in order to stock up. I haven’t seen it very near me, but it also can be bought through some online sources, such as here: Lizard Lips Lip Balm at, or you can Shop for Lizard Lips Balm on Bizrate/Shopzilla.


MAC Cosmetics Sun Tints SPF 20 Liquid Lip Balm

MAC Cosmetic BabyBloom Suntints MAC sent me a sample of their MAC Cosmetics SunTints Liquid Lip Balm, SPF 20 iconthat is part of their Baby Bloom collection, available now through September, 2009.

This tube lip gloss has a sheer tint and good moisturizing feel to it. One note of cautionis to apply it a bit on the heavier side (you don’t have to pack it on or anything though) to avoid any stickiness.

Gloss and sun are not always the best mix, so it is always nice to see new additions that include SPF!


Three SPF 15 or Higher Lip Balms for Sunny Days

I went biking this weekend and, while I forgot sunscreen on my arms and paid for it, I did not forget my lips!

Lips can burn just like any other part of the body, so sunscreen is a must when outdoors. It is also better to use a bit thicker or waxier formula outside so that it will last a bit longer and also protect against wind.

Here are my three favorite lip balms for outdoor activity.

  1. Exuviance Multi Protective Lip Balm, SPF 15 (read previous review): this balm has a nice balance between waxiness and moisturizing. It lasts well, feels great and has SPF15. It also comes in a very generous size. Exuviance Lip Balm
  2. Mission Skin Care SPF 15 Lip Balm (read previous review): Mission products also have a good balance between providing moisture, yet are waxy enough that you don’t have to constantly reapply the balm. The tubes are quite small (but also inexpensive). That is nice for ease of carrying, but not so nice if you like a bigger balm.                                                                                           Mission Lip Balm
  3. Banana Boat Lip Balm, SPF 30 : Banana Boat is my favorite drugstore balm. It is a nice and simple waxier balm with no flavoring or anything special other than that it lasts longer than most other balms for me and has a higher SPF.  The company also makes SPF 45 and 50 versions that I have not yet tried. It contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, and retails for between around $3. has the Banana Boat SPF 50 Lip Balm iconfor $2.09
