While this product isn't necessarily meant to be used just as a lip balm, I've been using it this way. It can actually be utilized to provide sun protection in any small or tough to reach places, like your earlobes, nose and of of course, your lips. And since I always love to keep my lips hydrated, what better way to do that on the beach than with loads and loads of sun protection?
This handy little stick protects against UVA and UVB rays and even helps to guard against premature aging. Plus it keeps lips super conditioned and moisturized -- and they feel so amazingly soft! The one downside is that it tends to wear off kind of quickly, so reapplication is key -- especially since you want to make sure you'll continue to keep yourself protected against those harmful rays as long as you can!
