Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15- a review



Why hello there!

I’ve raved and raved about this lip balm on twitter since receiving it at the Bobbi Brown bloggers event, so I thought it was time to do a proper review.

To be honest, I’ve never really give skin care products made by “cosmetic” brands much notice. I know this is a silly prejudice, but I always seek out skin care products by “skin care” brands, and cosmetic products by “cosmetic” brands (which is why I never take an interest in lipsticks by.. L’Occitane, for example, though they might be very good). This is why I never knew anything about Bobbi Brown’s lip balm SPF 15 until this little gem made it’s way to my goodies bag at the event.
Review

As many of you know, I really have a tough time finding a lip balm that works for my problem lips, so when I find one that does work I am a happy chappy. I absolutely adore this lip balm (enough to cheat on my Petrolatum Detox. *shhh* ).

This balm really softens and moisturises my chapped lips, and I’m loving how my lips feel in the morning after using this balm as an overnight treatment. It has the perfect texture- applies silkily, no stickiness, but actually hangs around on the lips for a good amount of time (45mins, more than most lip balms for me) before I need to reapply.
The synthetic rose scent is a touch too strong for my liking though.

SPF
 

The SPF 15 comes from the chemical filter Ethylexyl Methoxycinnamate and a small amount of Titanium Dioxide (physical blocker). As far as I know, these sunscreen ingredients are non toxic and reasonably good UV blockers. *HAPPY DANCE* (more SPF info on Sunscreen Lowdown)
