Hydrate and Protect Your Lips This Summer With Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15

Do you protect you lips with SPF? You should! I know, it’s something we tend to forget about, especially if you’re a lipstick lover. But I found something to use under or over your lipstick to protect your lips from sun damage:

Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15 ($4.99 CDN) is a clear, satin gloss that adds just a hint of shine and is perfect for wearing under lipstick, or on top of your lip colour to freshen it up and add a bit of sheen too.

Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15

Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15 moisturizes your lips with Shea Butter, Vitamin E and Aloe too! It goes on smooth and feels silky soft on the lips, and I love the slant tip.  I’m a huge lover of matte lipsticks, but I hate the dryness that accompanies them. Using Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15 underneath a matte lipstick makes SUCH a difference! It doesn’t add a ton of shine, so it’s perfect for making matte lipsticks more comfortable to wear. I’ll even put Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15 over top of  any lipstick to add some moisture but more importantly, protect my lips from sun damage.

Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm With SPF 15  is a summer staple for me and I’ve even brought it with me to California and Disneyland! Gotta protect my lips from getting sunburned because that REALLY puts a damper on the churro eating experience I tell ya!

Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm is available at select pharmacies across Canada, including Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharmasave, Overwaitea and Lawton’s.

So, do you protect your lips from getting sun damage? Please say yes!

*Product sent by PR for review. Thoughts and soft, protected lips are my own thank you very much. 🙂

  • Liz

    Always wanted to try Carmex but hate the original yellow packaging. This one looks nicer, haha.

  • I’m so guilty of forgetting about SPF for my lips! I have a couple of Fresh ones that have an SPF. Need to bust them out!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yup! Time to protect them lips!

  • I’m bad as far as SPF on my lips is concerned. I didn’t like the original Carmex but just might try this one. Thanks for the review. 🙂

  • I love Carmex! I use the original one every night. I will definitely be on the look out for this!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I love the original too! This one is just so much better to carry around in your purse!

  • I try to use balms with SPF, but some of them suck 😛 I’ve been trying out the Maybelline Baby Lips one lately, and I do not like it at all. Trying to make it work, though.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I HATE those Baby Lips-that’s another one that I don’t get why people like them! They feel so greasy!

  • This is the perfect reminder post! Managed to burn my lips on the one sunny day of the year last week end!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      OUCH. I hate when that happens! I have to be careful of that-if I get burned I get a cold sore. HATE THEM!

  • I love the tinted versions of this lip balm (you can only get them in the US, ugh!). I had the clear version but I lost it.. then I repurchased it and lost it again. *sigh*

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL Ashley. 🙂 I can’t find the tinted versions here in California! SO WEIRD.

  • BooBooNinja

    These are sleek and are reasonably priced! I’ll give this a go as soon as I’ve made more of a dent in my lip balm stash.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yes! Better than the pots!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Yes it’s got a bit of a shine, but not really glossy so it’s perfect. Hope you like it!

  • Lily

    I’m very consistent in applying sunscreen on my face, but truthfully, I never apply any SPF on my lips. It just never occurred to me! Eeps! I gotta do something about it now 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I have hyperpigmentation on my lips because of sun damage so better protect them Lily!

  • I have an Aveeno balm with SPF that I wear when I’m out. I wish most lip balms had it!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I agree-I wish more did too!

  • I forgot about these! I remember first seeing them in stores a couple years ago and buying them because at the time, I guess something looked cool to me about the packaging or something. I don’t know, I go through weird phases. But I totally agree about SPF for lips. I love Jack Black for that 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Jack Black is nice too! These are kind of sleek looking-maybe that’s why they appealed!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Being honest is good! For me it’s actually lightening sun damage so it’s worth it!
