Hey everyone! 😁 Today’s review is on Sun Bum Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 30! I have four flavors. They are Key Lime, Coconut, Mango, and Watermelon.

About Sun Bum Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 30:

Review:

Key lime has a sweet lime scent to it. It smells pretty good to me. Coconut smells like coconut but sweeter. Mango smells like aritificial mango flavoring to me. Lastly, Watermelon, I received a defective product. It has no smell to it. An unfinished product. 😐 I have no idea what it’s supposed to smell like. So these lip balms came intact when I purchased them (new). After less than a week of having them, they all became mushy and unpleasant. They were kept away from heat, humidity, anything that would melt them. Sadly, this happened. Mushy, mushy lip balms and only under a week of having them. I’ve never experienced something like this from any other lip balm (ones that I’ve used before). I didn’t like that. These balms are pretty oily when applied to the lips. They run off of the lips due to the oiliness. I’m really not impressed, to be honest. I thought the quality would be good from the packaging and price, but I guess not. I was happy to find some vegan and cruelty-free lip care products with SPF too. Unfortunately, they didn’t work out for me. I won’t purchase them again. I wouldn’t recommend them either.

Updated Review: Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30

It’s been over a month of using this sunscreen. Here’s what I think about it now. 🙂

I love the fact that this sunscreen is pretty inexpensive for what you get. As I mentioned in my previous review, you get 4 fl. oz of product for $10ish. Other sunscreens/sunblocks I’ve seen (for the face), they give you under 2 fl. oz of product (but costs much more). That’s one great thing about Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30. But, there are some things I would like to mention about this sunscreen. First, it is not moisturizing during the colder months. Since the weather is changing right now (it’s getting cold and cooler), I’ve noticed that it isn’t that moisturizing. It does quite the opposite…it dries out my skin! In the summer months, it’s oily and NOT oil absorbing. Next, this sunscreen burns my eyes. I don’t even get it in or near my eyes. Somehow my eyes get teary every time I use it. It has a strong chemical smell to it that I don’t like. My eyes are too sensitive for this sunscreen, so I’m on the search for something that’s more moisturizing (not greasy) and doesn’t burn my eyes/make it teary. 😢
