SPF is often overlooked when purchasing skincare. Oftentimes than not, we take SPF for granted but how much do we truly know about them? SPF is a measure of how much solar energy is required to produce sunburn on the skin. And we’re talking all skin, from our face to our body and, we can’t forget, our lips! Give your lips some attention with these lip balms packed with SPF!

Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 30
Smooth like butter is a saying we’re hearing way too often this summer. If you know what we mean (Any BTS stans out there?). Kiehl’s take this saying literally and embodies it in their Butterstick Lip Treatment. Formulated with a nourishing blend of lemon butter and coconut oil, this lip treatment supercharges hydration to your lips, providing year-round protection. Like Fresh, you can find tinted ones too for a natural glow but our go-to remains the untinted version.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15
The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care with SPF remains a childhood favourite for us. Loaded with vitamin E and vanilla flavour, the smell and application of this lip balm hit so close to home. Vitamin E helps cells to regenerate and is commonly known for its benefit for skin health. This lip balm keeps your lips protected from the sun while packing vitamin E goodness to your lips.
Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25
If you’re one for thick textures, Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm offers just that. Our go-to lip balm during the winter times, especially when we are experiencing cold sores. This Intense Therapy Lip Balm penetrates the skin for instant relief. Active ingredients like Avobenzone and Octinoxate is its key ingredient in helping absorbs UVA and UVB for healthy lips.
