Stacy B here! I ran out of my favorite lip balm last night. That’s the worst. I could feel the curved edges lightly scraping my lips even after turning that little wheel at the bottom a dozen times. I knew it would happen, I’ve been using it forever but still, it’s a hard thing to deal with. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who is very attached (and very territorial) about my bedside balm! Hubby’s not even allowed to use it, and it’s hidden away from my curious 3-year-old.
I have been using, religiously, every night for about 6 months now, the Jason Sunbrellas Lip Balm SPF 25. I know. No one needs SPF at night but this stuff smelled so good and lasted so long, it became my night time balm by default. I could put this on at night, sleep a full 8 hours (ha! I said COULD, not would…I do still have an infant) and wake up with lips that are moist, smooth, not chapped at all and ready for the day. Even while I’m still getting up at night now to feed a little one, I don’t have to reapply throughout the night. One good swipe before it’s lights out and I’m good for the day.
It has a great minty smell and flavor that is not too strong, doesn’t sting or tingle like some mint flavors can do, and doesn’t overwhelm you. The best part is it’s all natural, so no artifical colors, no animal testing, nothing in there that will cause weird lip cancers or something and it really lasts. I’ve used this through winters, springs and summers and even in the dryest of New England winters, it worked. On weekends I’ll put some on in the morning if I’m not wearing make up or haven’t showered yet and I’m usually good for the whole day. Even through eating and showering, when I get around to it.
I don’t have much else to say about this because it’s just a good solid product. It works, it’s safe, it’s not all that expensive and it lasts. I’ve used a few other Jason products in the past, and I’ve been fairly happy with all of them. They are a UK based company, so they can be hard to find here, but you can get them on line for relatively low shipping costs.
Running out of that product that you really love can completely ruin your day. Or in my case, night. You can bet if I can’t find this at my local drugstore (like I said, it’s hit or miss since it’s a UK company), I’m getting on Amazon.com and ordering a bunch of these tubes fast! One for the car, one for the nightstand, one for my bag and probably a few extra. That way I’ll never run out!
Have any of you ever tried Jason? What did you think? Also, if you had to count, how many lip balms are floating around your house?
