Ratings & Reviews
Love this product.
I have very dry and easy to chap lips. This products is super moisturising and stays on. The spf is a bonus. I'm really happy I found it.
Aside from the added benefit of spf, I've noticed this lip balm is one I have to apply the least compared to any other before. Creamy and smooth all the way to the end--no weird hardening or grittyness I've noticed other chapsticks can get.
Its hard to find a great lipscreen with the "right ingredients" to protect your lips from the sun (SPF 50!!) and dryness in the winter. I am happy Paula has come out with this product and will buy it over and over. It does not dry out your lips--it totally moisturizes and protects. Couldn't ask for better!!! Thank you for the many years of protecting me.

I was looking for a product that would protect my lips from the sun and also keep my lipstick from bleeding while wearing. This lip balm is great! It's not too slick and makes it easy to apply lipstick on top of it. My lip color stays on and my lips are smooth and protected - a winner!

This is the only lip balm I currently use. I've been experimenting with different lip balms for years. I've tried everything from handmade balms from small, fair trade shops to the cheap chapstick near the checkout line in a supermarket. PC's lip balm is my favorite. A few others have come close, but they had fragrance, which I am sensitive to or they would be great in every way but not have sun protection. This lip balm is fragrance free and I have not noticed a taste. I noticed it is long lasting because I like to keep my lip balm on me at all times, and with this one I do not have to reapply frequently. I was using Burt's Bees religiously before PC, but I was needing to apply it way too often (at least 10 times per day). I will continue exploring with other lip balms -as someone who wears minimal makeup, it is one of my favorite accessories- but I'm glad I have this as my go to! Bonus: it has SPF 50. It's a win all around.

This is the highest sun protection you can get while still being cosmetically elegant. I lost my first tube of this the day after I got it and wasted no time in ordering more! It's that good. The only issue is that the chemical filters aren't the best available. Avobenzone is stabilized by octocrylene, but both of them, as well as the remaining octisalate degrade with light exposure, penetrate the skin, and are possibly harmful. I'd prefer either a purely mineral formulation or one with Tinosorb and/or Uvinul. I'll be happily repurchasing this one until that dream comes true, though!
Great product. Very protective and moisturizing and no sunscreen chemical smell like other chapsticks with spf.
I use chapstick on a daily basis and bought this to try out with my last order. This has become my new favorite chapstick. It leaves a nice even coat when applied and I love the spf. I've also found that with this chapstick I don't have to apply it as often as my old ones.
