MD Formulations SPF 20
This looks and tastes a bit medical but is the least waxy or greasy of the bunch. The SPF 20 protects your lips from the sun’s rays, while its vitamin E and shea butter content leave your kisser feeling fresh.
This comes in an easy to squeeze tube but has such an overwhelmingly menthol taste using it makes you feel like you’ve been rubbing your lips with Crème de Menthe. Worse still, your lips start to feel dry again moments after you’ve applied it.
Eco Lips Energy
You don’t have to worry about losing this balm because it's on a carabiner you can clip to a belt loop. But it’s not just the casing that’s impressive – it’s got a pleasant spearminty smell and its caffeine, green tea and B12 content will keep your lips nicely moist.
Badger SPF 15 sunblock
Badger SPF 15 whiffs of hospital and has the consistency of Pritt Stick. If you can get past that, its ingredients, including Moroccan blue tansy and zinc oxide, will protect your lips from the elements. Big if.
