It’s no secret that I’m a sunscreen hoarder. Dermatologists say it’s the best antiaging product out there for your skin, and the same applies for your lips. Sun damage is a major culprit of chapped lips. As they say, prevention is the best cure so wearing a lippie with SPF, especially when outdoors, is essential for healthy and silky-smooth lips!
Looking for a new SPF lip protector? Let me introduce you today to my new favorite! Michael Todd SPF 18 Tinted Lip Protector Trio is a set of 3 color-tinted natural lip balms that provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while adding a sheer veil of beautiful color to keep your lips looking gorgeous and healthy!
This protective trio of 82% organic lip balms is powered by organic extra virgin olive oil and beeswax to hold in moisture for long-lasting hydration. Infused with organic peppermint oil, they have a refreshing minty flavor that also provides a subtle natural plumping. Here is the short (and easy to understand!) ingredient list :
Active Ingredient: Zinc Oxide 10% (Non-nanoparticle)
Organic Calendula, Organic Comfrey, Organic Lavender, Organic Plaintain and Organic Yarrow Infused in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Organic Beeswax, Organic Peppermint Oil, Non-GMO Vitamin E.
May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides. Gluten & Carmine Free. Certified Organic to USDA/NOP Standards
I love that these lip balms offer broad-spectrum SPF protection with a pure zinc oxide mineral sunscreen….you guys know that’s always a big plus for me! The formula is smooth, lightweight and nicely moisturizing with SPF 18, which puts my sun-paranoid mind at ease. Not only that, it’s all-natural and free from preservatives, parabens, carmine, gluten, artificial dyes or fragrances and also never tested on animals.
In the trio, you get 3 really pretty shades – Mauve Over, Copper Penny and Very Berry. All three of them are easy to wear and beautiful with a lovely color payoff! They provide just the right amount of pigment in a couple of swipes but the sheer color is easily buildable for more pop! And because of the sheer tint, the formula doesn’t look chalky or leave any white cast on lips despite a high percentage of zinc oxide. Here are the swatches :
With an affordable price tag of $12, Michael Todd Tinted Lip Protector Trio SPF 18 is a delightful little natural beauty bargain (you get 3 lip balms for $4 each)! With these hydrating lippies, you won’t ever have to sacrifice glamor for moisture and sun protection! Now applying sunscreen every day on lips will be a non-issue, right?
