My drawbacks for this product is that if kept in your pocket throughout the day the twister does move so you run the risk of it being pushed up to far and snapping it off and the mess that ensues trying to get it back into the tube.It does tend to melt a little because of body heat but I've never had an issue with it leaking. Another thing I'm not a fan of is the taste of the balm itself. Being so close to your mouth it's impossible to never get some in there, especially when having a drink. I can't describe the taste but it isn't particualry pleasant but you get used to it and it's a small price to pay for such an effective lip product that contains SPF which is so essential.

Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.This is a great balm for dry lips thanks to the different blend of butters without being too slippery. It wears well without going gloopy or sticky after it's been on for a while and doesn't look overly shiny when freshly applied as I don't want my lip balm to look like lip gloss. Guys, the formula is exactly the same as the PC4MEN balm and the packaging isn't feminine so just get whichever one is on offer. It's really diifficult to find a lip balm with sunscreen but being PC it's got high, broad spectrum SPF with added vitamin E to get the added benefit of an antioxidant.

I am on my second stick and I am not going to be changing brands. It leaves a slightly glossy finish which I also love :)It is very moisturising and does not feel sticky at all. It does not smell and does not have any taste. It is a bit pricey, indeed, but the texture and the active ingredients are worth the money!Essentially this is Lip&Body Treatment Balm in a form of chap stick which is brilliant! I adore Lip&Body Treatment Balm since it is the only lip care product that keeps my dry lips nourished even in the harshest weather but it is a bit bulky to travel with. So the slick chap stick version is amazing for travelling and just keeping it in your purse all the time. It is odourless, it has a nice texture and does the job plus it has SPF 50 - what not to like?
Customer Care: Thank you for your lovely feedback, glad you like this as well!The lip screen feels very moisturising and the "waxy" texture stays on your lips for quite some time and does not migrate to the skin surrounding lips. I also did not get the typical sunscreen taste in my mouth (not that I am eating it). Visually it is not that shiny and not sticky.
I have tried a few fragrance free lip care products with SPF 30 and 1 product with SPF 50 that I could find in the UK. Paula's Choice one, although a bit pricy, is by far the most superior one (considering SPF 50, texture, ingredients).
I am very happy that this product is now purchasable in the UK and I will definitely keep buying it.

Frequently asked questions
How often do I need to reapply Lipscreen SPF 50?
It depends on how long you’ll be in the sun and how long it lasts on your lips, which is based on what else you apply over it (like lipstick) or if it comes off after eating. If you will be in direct sunlight, it can last for several hours but be sure to reapply once it begins to wear off.
Will Lipscreen SPF 50 leave a white cast?
No this lipscreen will not leave a white cast. This lip balm with sunscreen does not contain mineral actives of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, both of which, depending on the formula, can leave a white cast on lips.
Is Lipscreen SPF 50 OK for sensitive lips?
Yes this lipscreen is ok for sensitive lips, unless you know your lips are sensitive to one or more of the sunscreen actives this lip balm contains. Otherwise, the fragrance-free formula is exceptionally gentle and does not contain irritants like menthol, camphor, or citrus commonly seen in many lip balms.
Is there another Paula's Choice product similar to the Lip Balm SPF 50?
Our Lip Balm SPF 50 is identical to our PC4Men Lip Balm SPF 50.
