Lips are often overlooked when it comes to sun protection, even though it’s not an uncommon place to find skin cancer. Your lips need sun protection as much as any other part of your face or body that is exposed to daylight!
Have you ever felt guilty for wearing your favorite lipstick and leaving your pucker unprotected from the sun…I know I have! That’s where these best tinted lip balms with SPF come in!
Tinted lip balms with SPF are the perfect middle ground between lip care and lip color. Not only do they help keep your lips soft & supple for hours but also safe from sun damage while adding a sheer pop of color. And they are so easy to apply that you can do it without a mirror!
Throw one in your purse, beach bag, and keep one on your desk so that you can give your lips complete protection from sun damage and dehydration…anytime, anywhere!
Whether you’re about to head on a beach vacay, or just hanging around the park or a pool nearby, here are the best tinted lip balms with SPF you need to protect and perfect your pout!
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($24) – This tinted lip balm is a cult-favorite for a reason! Creamy-soft in texture, it provides essential protection from damaging UV rays while delivering major moisture with a pretty pop of color….and a highly addictive sweet-citrus scent! I am loving the new shade Candy, a bright pink tint that’s perfect for beach or pool parties!
Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20 ($7.99) – This sheer tinted balm delivers plenty of moisture with a subtle pop of color plus SPF 20 sunscreen to protect lips and keep them looking healthy. It comes in 4 vibrant shades ranging from a toasty caramel to a pretty plum that leaves your lips looking juicy. And the price is right!
Babo Botanicals Sheer Lip Tint Conditioner SPF 15 ($9.95) – This 100% natural tinted lip balm kills two birds with one stone by adding a sheer pop of color with high shine and upping your SPF game with its mineral-sunscreen-infused formula. Infused with shea butter and antioxidants, it keeps lips smooth, hydrated and protected. For under $10, it’s a must-try beauty bargain!
Sephora Collection Rouge Balm SPF 20 ($12.50) – This colorful lip protectant makes hot-weather makeup a helluva lot easier to manage! It’s a balmy lipstick with a creamy gel texture that delivers a dazzling pop of color in one swipe with a juicy shine. Each hydrates as it protects lips with SPF 20, yuzu extract, and a vitamin E derivative. It comes in 8 fresh shades that are bright but won’t make you look too done up.
Supergoop Perk Up! Lip & Cheek Treat SPF 40 ($22) – This multitasking must-have comes in a convenient, on-the-go compact (with built-in mirror) that features a universally flattering rosy tint. It does double duty, giving cheeks a healthy rosy glow,
and lips a sheer rosy tint along with vitamin-enriched broad-spectrum sun protection! It’s the perfect pick to take you from the spin studio to street in seconds flat!
Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25 ($19.50) – This coconut oil-infused super hydrating lip treatment instantly melts onto lips, providing a cushion of soothing moisture plus broad-spectrum SPF 25 sunscreen. Along with a nourishing blend of oils and butters, the 100% natural formula also contains skin-loving antioxidants. Available in 5 shades from nude to rosy pink.
Coola Mineral Liplux SPF 30 ($18) – This tinted lip balm packs a serious protective punch (SPF 30) with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide while adding a hint of natural color. It soothes and nourishes dry lips with cupuacu butter and mongongo oil. The shade selection is surprisingly large for a lip balm, with 6 natural sheer shades from a peachy nude to sheer poppy red. It’s also water resistant (40 minutes).
I would highly recommend picking up this Coola Mineral Liplux Trio SPF 30 that’s only $39.99 ($54 value) and comes with 3 shades – a sheer tan, bold red and copper bronze.
Revlon Kiss Balm SPF 20 ($4.99) – Perfect for a glossy wash of color plus moisture, this tinted lip balm also delivers broad-spectrum sun protection at a price that’s nice! The hydrating formula is infused with natural fruit oils, and comes in 6 sheer juicy colors that instantly perk up your complexion.
