For a face sunscreen with a matte finish and a bit of coverage (rather than a greasy sheen and fake-banana smell) try CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF 40.

Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve learned a painful lesson about sunburn over the years: It can happen anywhere—in between toes, on the tops of ears, along the part in our hair. This balm provides sun protection for another often-forgotten spot: our lips. At SPF 45, it’s strong enough for a bright day at the beach—and with its oh-so-subtle tint, it gives us a healthier kind of color.

How to Use

Apply generously to lips 15 minutes before heading out into the sunshine. Reapply every two hours (or after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating). In a pinch, you can apply the oil-free formula to your nose and the tips of your ears too.

Just fine
Purchased

The balm comes on smooth and is great because I'm outside all the time during the summer hiking. But it smells weird, and the smell of a lip balm or lipstick matters to me. I don't know why. It does not taste good either. When it came out of the package it looked like there was something wrong with plastic wrapping on the outside of the tube. I has some weird pink line that goes all around it. I don't know if that is normal or not. But all in all it is a nice product.

i like it
Purchased

I use this all the time. It doesn't have a strong sunblock taste which is one of my pet peeves with lip balm that has spf. It isn't as moisturizing as other lip balms but I think it does the job fine. It gets a wee bit melty in the heat so i leave it in my cooler.

Awesome addition for summer!
Purchased

This product is awesome, and just in time for summer. The tint is light, and the overall feel for the product is light. I've been out in the sun a lot, and my lips aren't drying out as badly as they used to. I recommend this product.

Wonderful protection and moisturization!
Purchased

I live in FL and am frequently out in the sun, on the water. This lip balm is a Godsend! It protects my lips 100% and doesn't get cakey like most other balms do when you reapply. It also doesn't dry your lips out. So glad I got this!!

Perfect lip SPF
Purchased

I'm in love. I run in the summer and my lips are the first thing to burn. This is moisturizing, stays put, not greasy, and is a little matte. The flavor is a little on the neutral side. Nothing fruity or minty. The brown color of the balm doesn't change the color of your lips - it's very sheer.

High SPF, not as hydrating as hoped
Purchased

I love the high SPF, however it was not long lasting nor did I find it to be as moisturizing. That being said, I just had to reapply more than I would've preferred. Overall, not a bad product & it does add a pretty sheen.

meh
Purchased

i was excited to buy this, months ago, but since then I've found that i never use it. it's got a pretty strong flesh-tone color to it that just isn't attractive unless you wear the thinnest of layers (and then it's probably not even very effective as sunscreen). i just wish it wasn't so tinted.
