It doesn’t take much to inspire me to buy a new tube of lip balm. In fact, the last time I was at CVS, I bought a tube and a tub. In my experience, it’s hard to have too many chapsticks. The other day I was at CVS picking up a prescription for my husband for his cold, and I just happened to pass by a lip balm display, so of course I had to check it out. I ended up coming home with Mission Skincare Pink Lemonade Serena Williams SPF 15 Lip Balmer and Essence of Beauty Strawberry Banana Lip Butter in a tub, which I haven’t opened yet. I’m a sucker for both of these flavors. First things first though, the pink lemonade Serena Williams lip balm…
The tube is thicker than a Softlips but minimally thinner than a Bonne Belle or a Crazy Rumors. It is a good height that makes it easier to find in your purse, but it is still small enough for your pocket. I especially like that the product has SPF15, making it perfect for the beach, sports, swimming, and spending time outside just about anywhere. It is also supposed to be effective in harsh weather conditions. This is a great lip balm to add to your collection, as it glides on smooth and silky with a nice creamy texture that seems to hydrate my lips longer than the average chapstick.
Mission Skincare Pink Lemonade Serena Williams SPF 15 Lip Balmer contains the active ingredients Octinoxate and Oxybenzone, both being sunscreen for UVA / UVB sun protection. Some other infredients include Beeswax, Candelilla wax, Olive fruit oil, Rosemary leaf extract, Echinacea Purpurea extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Pomegranate seed oil, Cranberry seed oil, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D3, and Vitamin K, to name a few.
The product is vitamin-enriched and paraben-free, making it a good, healthy choice for your lips. Clinical tests prove the moisturizing effects can last for up to eight hours when using this product. I really do notice a lasting effect and I’ve been grabbing for this product first when looking for a lip balm in my purse. The flavor is subtle, but there. I don’t find it to have the same zing as the Bonne Belle pink lemonade chapstick, but it is a more upscale and utilitarian product thanks to the sleek styling and the inclusion of sunscreen.
If you want to try out this appealing lip smoothing and hydrating goodie, simply check out your favorite local drugstore or mass market retailer. Mission Skincare Pink Lemonade Serena Williams SPF 15 Lip Balmer sells for around $3.99 per tube.
