XBALM Extreme Tropical Lip Balm SPF 15 review

I feel like my lip balms never really last. I take excellent care of myself, but probably take the best care of my lips. I absolutely cannot stand to have dry or chapped lips, and as a result, I probably have at least three tubes of chapstick on me at any given time. The most recent chapstick that I have added to my massive collection is XBALM Extreme Tropical lip balm ($2.99 plus tax). 

XBALM Extreme Tropical Lip Balm is a moisturizing lip product that comes in a clear plastic tube that measures roughly two-and-a-half inches long and about half-an-inch in diameter. The tube has a twistable bottom piece that, when turned one way or the other either raises the lip balm within the tube to above the surface of the tube or else pulls the balm back down into the tube. This twistable piece is serrated and is about an eighth-of-an-inch high, making it pretty simple to grip and to turn without one’s fingers slipping in the process. The tube is topped with a silver plastic cap that matches the rest of the tube in color. This cap may be removed by pulling up on it as well as may be replaced on the tube by pressing down upon it in order to snap it back on. The body of the tube is wrapped in a silver colored plastic label that includes such information as the full name of the product, that the tube weighs 0.15 ounces (4.2 grams), and an ingredient list. 

The balm within the tube is clear-white in color and it does not leave color on one’s lips when applied. Should one care to appear to be going all-natural, I would recommend this balm, as the absence of color that it leaves behind when applied is certainly completely natural. The product is not an odorless one, nor is it flavorless. The Lip Balm smells mildly fruity and a tiny bit waxy. As far as flavor goes, the product tastes fruity as well, though the flavor is not at all overbearing and is actually rather underwhelming instead. Once applied, the product stays on for about an hour when one is using their mouth actively, such as during activities like talking, eating, etcetera. Otherwise, the product remains in place for roughly two hours.

Using XBALM Extreme Tropical Lip Balm is incredibly easy, all one need do is remove the product’s cap, twist the bottom piece on the tube in order to raise the balm above the top of the tube in order to smoothly apply the product to one’s lips, and then apply the product evenly over one’s lips in order to keep lips from becoming chapped, as well as to color them slightly. I recommend doing this in a mirror so that a greasy mark is not left on the area surrounding one’s lips. This product should only be used as directed, that is to say, on one’s lips. One should stop using this product immediately should any skin rashes occur as well as they should keep this product out of the reach of children and pets. 

Ingredients for the product include Octinoxate, Oxybenzone, Ozokerite, Mineral Oil, Beeswax, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Aloe Vera Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), and Sodium Saccharin, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, BHT and flavor.

I do enjoy this product. XBALM Lip Balm has kept my lips moist, healthy, and free from chapping. I would recommend this product to everyone who might enjoy the fruit flavor as well as moistened, healthy lips. The color of the product is a not an unnatural one, and therefore men would probably feel comfortable wearing this product as it is flavored, scented and colorless.
