Hello everyone! So many sunscreen lip balms have the same problem – they all leave a white film on your lips and that ain’t no way to live. If your lips have ever been burned though, you know the struggle is real. When I was perusing Shoppers Drug Mart a couple months ago, I noticed a new brand of sun protection products called Sun Bum, specifically their adorable gorilla.
From trustthebum.com: Relieves the drying effects of sun, wind and sea, restores and nourishes chapped lips, contains soothing cocoa butter, petrochemical and PABA free, gluten free, and 100% Vegan.
PROS: If you’re a banana lover then you will LOVE this lip balm! The scent is delicious and say goodbye to sunscreen-white lips. This balm leaves a slightly glossy finish and lips feel super smooth and hydrated.
CONS: It’s a little pricey for a lip balm at $5.99 at SDM (where I’ve only seen this brand carried…let me know if you see it anywhere else). But let’s get real…I’ve spent more on dumber things (haha!)
WOULD I REPURCHASE? Yes!! SPF30 on the lips, delicious smell, AND doesn’t leave a white cast? Awesome.
They do offer other scents on their site, however I’ve only seen banana here in Canada. Let me know if you find any others, or have a recommendation for another great sunscreen lip balm! Thanks so much for stopping by!
