Have you ever gotten a sunburn on your lips? If you answered yes, you know it’s not a fun experience. Just as you apply sunscreen to your face and body every day, your lips also need protection from UV rays. But instead of smearing your face sunscreen all over your lips, try using a nourishing lip balm with SPF. Not only will the right formula help protect your lips from the sun, but it can also leave your lips feeling soft and smooth. From a berry-tinted lip balm to a silky gloss, keep reading to find our favorite lippies with SPF that we’ll be reaching for this summer and beyond.

Our Favorite Tinted Lip Balm with SPF

MDSolarSciences Tinted Lip Balm - SPF 30

Keep your lips smooth, soft and protected with this nourishing lip balm. The formula — made with shea butter and avocado oil — envelopes lips in a hydrating cushion and has broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection. It’s available in five gorgeous tints that offer a hint of color and ample protection.

Our Favorite Meltproof Lip Balm with SPF

Vacation Inc Strawberry Jello Salad SPF 30 Lip Balm Sunscreen 

Inspired by the iconic summer picnic dessert, we can’t get enough of this delightful lip balm. This is our go-to beach day lippie — not only for the SPF 30 protection, but because the brand claims it’s reef safe and won’t melt in the heat.

Our Favorite Lip Gloss with SPF

Supergoop! Lip Screen SPF 40

Lip glosses have evolved a lot over the years. Many formulas feel silky rather than tacky and some even contain SPF, like this one from Supergoop! The invisible gloss can be worn over your favorite lipstick or on its own for a pretty sheen and SPF 40 UVA/B protection.

Our Favorite Multi-Use Balm with SPF

ColoreScience Sunforgettable Total Protection Color Balm SPF 50 

Add a pop of color (and a bit of sun protection!) to your lips and cheeks with this multi-use balm. The water-resistant formula comes in three gorgeous hues — Blush, Berry and Bronze.

Our Favorite Scented Lip Balm with SPF

Cay Skin Isle Lip Balm SPF 30

Formulated with aloe stem cells, sea moss and vitamin E, Cay Skin claims that this ultra-nourishing lip balm hydrates and softens lips while protecting them from harmful UV rays. If the silky feel of the glossy balm doesn’t make you obsessed, then the sweet vanilla brown sugar scent will.
