Pick of the Week: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm

914N3vTTVkL._SY355_With less than a week left in the semester, we’re all pretty much ready for summer. Although the weather in Happy Valley is less than tropical, the beach is a whole different story.

You always apply sunscreen when you’re at the beach (or you should), but chances are you’re forgetting that your lips need protection as well. All that time basking in the sun with nothing to protect your lips can leave them burned and chapped. Finding a good lip balm with SPF is important if you want to keep your pout soft and kissable this summer.

Meet your new BFF: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm. With natural ingredients like corn oil, Vitamin E and (obviously) cocoa butter, this balm is Valley approved. The Vitamin E will soothe your lips while the SPF15 will keep them from burning. As with any sunscreen product, make sure you apply it at least 15 minutes before heading outside and reapply regularly.

This balm isn’t just for sunny days, though. The moisturizing ingredients will soothe your pout all year long. Plus, we all know sunscreen isn’t just for the summer – protecting your skin is important in every season.

This lip balm is amazing, but the thing that truly won us over was the shape. Unlike most lip balms, the tube is rectangular, not round. This means no more constantly losing it when it rolls away from you. Score!
