Raw Materials Face Stick SPF 30

There’s no law that says you can’t tote around a quart-size container of sunscreen—but there are more compact, less spill-prone alternatives. Like this lip balm-size solid, which offers broad spectrum protection while still fitting into your pocket. It’s concentrated formula is designed to stand up to serious, marathon-in-August sweat.

Face stick?
Sampled

I was a bit reluctant when I first saw this product, but the fact that it's for your lips AND face sold me. It's like having sunscreen in your pocket in a mini-tube. I got the product and then headed to San Diego for a weekend getaway and it came in handy when I was out in the sun all day. My only complaint is that it looks odd when you're running what looks like chapstick all over your face.

Face stick?
Sampled

I have no complaints about this product as a chapstick. I can't imagine smearing chapstick on my face, but I guess if I got desperate I'd put some on my nose. I'd only use this product on my lips, so the price tag seems a little high.

I was a bit underwhelmed with the face stick. It isn't horrible I just hate the idea of rubbing a stick all over my face and didn't like the way it made my skin feel afterwards.

A bit hard to apply - would be better as a spray
Sampled

I like the idea of SPF - but think that it should be in everything - moisturizers, shave cream, hand soap, everything !!

I found this a bit hard to apply - I would love to have a good face-friendly spray (or mist) that had good SPF.

It is a good product but I don't see the different from other regular CVS brands

I like the packaging the most. The product is ok, but the packaging lends itself to taking it anywhere.

Not Your Traditional Lip Balm
Sampled

When I received the sample stick I thought it had to be lip balm. Indeed it was, but it also claims to be for your nose and face. I thought this was a little weird and decided to try it on just my lips first. The product left a weird taste on my lips and I kept having the urge to wipe it off. I never even considered applying to my nose or face after the feeling it gave my lips. Was not for me.

Good little extra to throw in the beach bag to protect the lips from burning.

Great lip balm
Sampled

I have only used this a lip balm, as I think alternating between my face and lips is kind of weird--also I have sensitive skin, and am very careful about what I use on my face. It makes a great lip balm, and holds up even on the sunniest and dryest days. I will get more of this for sure.
