Shop Lip Balm with SPF
Over the years, we’ve been collectively getting educated about SPF. It started with the body revolution - gone were the days of beach-baking, replaced with fake-baking and tan-in-a-can.
Then, came the facial revolution - as we realised that premature ageing could be directly linked to unprotected exposure to the sun, and that sunspots, lines and wrinkles could be held at bay with a squirt of SPF each morning.
So, if you’ve been religiously applying your body and facial sunscreen for years and are looking for the final SPF frontier - you might find yourself in need of a decent lip balm with SPF.
Do your lips need SPF?
Not only are our lips one of the thinnest parts of our skin, they also can’t create their own hydration as they lack oil and sweat glands - leaving them prone to dryness, cracking and - you guessed it - sunburn
Searching for a lip balm with high SPF?
We don’t like to play favourites, but if its a SPF 30 or SPF50 you’re looking for in a lip balm, we recommend checking out Ultra Violette Sheen Screen SPF50 which comes in four cute colours, a delectable hint of shine and a shedload of SPF. If you’re after something a little more utilitarian, the Aesop Protective Lip Balm SPF 30 is a great soft matte option that with protect and soften dry lips. Want a hit of colour at the same time? Lanolips Tinted Lip Balm SPF30 which comes in heaps of different colours - but Red Apple is our pick for lush colour and shine, with a hot helping of protection too.
Looking for something a little luxe?
Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15 gives a hint of shine, and a lot of luxe in its silver tin - looking great on your lips or even in a #shelfie.
