If you’re planning on spending hours in the sun, try C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip Balm Stick SPF 15, which has built-in SPF.

C.O. BIGELOW

Birchbox Breakdown

A lip balm that does its job well shouldn’t need to be reapplied every five minutes. C.O. Bigelow’s chemists had that in mind when they crafted this hydrating formula, which doesn’t just moisturize lips, but also provides long-lasting protection. Fragrance-free and with no artificial colorants, it’s the most straightforward high-performing lip treatment out there.

How it Works

This balm is formulated with a trifecta of nourishing natural ingredients: wheat germ, shea butter, and sweet almond oil. The slanted-tip applicator dispenses just the right amount of balm, while petroleum ensures a smooth glide.

How to Use

Simply squeeze tube to dispense product on to lips. Reapply when necessary.

Don't like the smell/taste

This product does not smell as good as others in the line, and I don't really like the aftertaste from using on my lips. Ironic that it is called "My Favorite Lip Balm" because it definitely is not my favorite. Using it is better than nothing, but I would recommend a different product for use on healing chapped lips. I also prefer lip balms that are in solid, stick form. I thought application of this product was more difficult.

My lip go-to~
Purchased

I rarely rave about a product, however this is my serious go-to for lip balm! Not only do my dry lips heal faster with this balm than many I have tried before, it's from a brand I know works! Been curious to try this? -DO IT!- You will not regret it :)!

This stuff is awesome.. it goes on smooth and lasts a while. It doesn't have any taste or scent, but sometimes its about the moisturizer :)

Nice balm

I am a lip product addict, and this wasn't one of my favorites. It's not scented, has no color and doesn't taste good. If i'm going to go C.O. Bigelow I would probably stick with the Mentha lip products. This one did moisturize well, it's just not my preference.

Great for winter
Purchased

Great simple moisturizing lip balm for the extreme dry cold winter that we've been having. It's nice that's it lasts long and can be used as a base for some lip color.

LOVE THIS LIP LINE!

Over the years I have purchased many, many lip balms from this brand. My lips are always soft and moisturized after I apply this plus it smells great!

Great formula!

This is one of the best hydrating lip glosses. It doesnt dry out my lips but moisturizes them instead. I love the natural almond flavor as well.

works but doesn't last
Purchased

This product does the job, but just like any other lipgloss/balm, I find I have to reapply frequently, despite what the description says.

It's called "My Favorite" for a reason!
Purchased

This lip balm definitely has lived up to it's name. With the great natural almond taste and the way it keeps my lips moist it quickly became my go to lip balm!! I have used many products an this one has definitely taken over.

Not my fav
Purchased

This product is a little too glossy for me. A little bit goes a long way but feel like other products work better.
