As important as I know SPF is for the face, I have a hard time with it for the lips. I must have bought nearly 30 different kinds of lip balm with SPF and have used them only once. Why? They taste disgusting. God forbid some gets in my mouth, I swear I taste bug repellent. So I am game for trying any and all SPF lip balms, but usually wind up discarding them with the rest of the rejects. However, I recently had the opportunity to try Sun Bum Flavored Lip Balm SPF 30+ and have to say, they do a great job of masking that horrid taste!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro surfer, a bona fide beach bum, or just a city dweller, sun protection is a must in a world where one in five of us will get skin cancer due to sun exposure. When you live and love in the sun, you need the protection trusted by the premier sun bums of our time: surfers, lifeguards, swimmers—the folks out there every day braving waves and UV rays. So trust a company that was created by tried-and-true sun bums to protect their own family, friends, and community from the intense and harmful rays of the Florida sun. That would be Sun Bum.
All Sun Bum formulas deliver the broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection you need without the junk you don’t (parabens, PABA, etc.). Sun Bum sunscreens are tested, approved and recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation. Shield your most sensitive skin from the sun and develop a serious lip-licking habit with their original Banana or try new Key Lime, Coconut, Mango, Pink Guava and Pomegranate flavors—all in SPF 30+. Formulated with antioxidant, anti-aging Vitamin E & Aloe, it also contains Cocoa Butter to moisturize. Just apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure and be sure to reapply at least every two hours or after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating.
Sun Bum is available at legit surf shops, chic boutiques, and some of the finest coastal resorts around the world. Or visit TrustTheBum.com.
