I am absolutely bonkers about sun protection on my lips. So I am always in search of something that works well but also is pool appropriate. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (a favorite of mine) is only SPF 15 and sometimes is just too pigmented for hot, sticky weather. I have used their Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 briefly until I left an almost new tube in a life vest in Colorado early this summer. 🙁 For the one use I got in, I liked it but not enough to give a full review. For now, I am sticking to my (safely-guarded) new Coola Suncare Mineral Liplux.
Cupuacu butter and mongongo oil give this formula a creamy and conditioning texture while boosting moisture. The SPF 30 doesn’t appear chalky despite it being powered with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. And for my fellow pool-goers, the Liplux is water resistant for 40 minutes.
I have been wearing Skinny Dip which is perfect for me because I prefer very little color in the summer. This nude and sheer tint is naturally flavored with Earl Grey. Note: I cannot detect much of a scent in the tube. The packaging is elegant metallic that screws into the cap, similar to Fresh.
