Despite being almost obsessed with Solar protection other skin care, every summer, without fail, I end up with sunburned lips. It’s easy to forget that putting sunscreen on your mouth is just as important as the rest of your face and body, but it’s an absolute must. I have long been a devotee of Fresh’s cult favorite Sugar Lip Balm with SPF to help improve my carelessness, so you can imagine my surprise when I tried to buy a tube this summer and discovered that this beloved lip balm has been reformulated without FPS.

A big selling point of this best-selling balm was that it offered a barrier against UV rays. Now what? It was time to find a new sunscreen lip product and luckily we can all breathe a sigh of relief, because there are quite a few brands that are doing a good job of making products with SPF. lip formulas in all sorts of beautiful hues, from bold to subtle.

One of the biggest selling points of Fresh’s sugar balms (aside from sun protection) was that they have a beautiful texture and come in a beautiful variety of colors, so it’s key that a replacement has the same quality of ingredients and color selections. Below, I’ve rounded up some great replacements from popular skincare brands like EltaMD, Colorescience, Aquaphor, and more. Read on to pick one for yourself and establish a new summer favorite lipstick.
