I was not satisfied with the Alba Botanica Lip care SPF 25. So well; again I was on the lookout for a lip balm with sunscreen. While purchasing the SuperGoop sunscreen, I picked up the lip balm too. It sounded yummy, mint fusion and all 😉
So here I am, with a review of the SuperGoop SPF 30 mint fusion lip balm. Let’s see whether it is worth your money or not!
Product Claims: With the strength of acai superberry, this lip balm with SPF 30+ hydrates, repairs, protects, and soothes. Enriched with moisturizing shea butter to lock in hydration and provide a protective barrier from not only the sun, but also environmental damage that can wreak havoc on the delicate skin of the lips and if that wasn’t enough, its sheer pink tint makes lip color unnecessary.
What Makes This Goop Super:
• Wear alone or apply over or even under your favorite lip color,
transforming your signature shade into a antioxidant-powered UV protector
• Protects against aging free radical damage with powerful acai
• Shea Butter provides instant deep hydration and locks in moisture
Who Is This Ideal For
Women who want to hydrate and protect lips while adding a little color
My Experience with the SuperGoop Mint Fusion Lip Balm with SPF 30+:
This lip balm comes in a tube packaging with and ergonomic applicator. It perfectly along to the lip contour, so it’s great to touch up without worrying about smudging. It is especially great to put over lipsticks as even if the lipstick transfers, it can be wiped with a tissue. With chap sticks, I feel, it is difficult, as the lipstick gets transferred to the product itself.
Another added advantage is that we have control over the amount of product that comes out, so with the perspective of hygiene too, it is great.
The lip balm itself has soft and lighter Vaseline texture. It applies smoothly and gives a really subtle sheen to the lips. Nothing sticky or icky like Vaseline ,but,my lips feel as if I have eaten too much salt, you know the feeling right. I don’t mean texture-wise, but in terms of the way my lips feel.
Immediately, I am unable to judge the mint in the balm. But within 30 seconds, I smell and feel sweet peppermint scent and tingling sensation. Actually the minty fresh scent and feeling is quite pleasant.
I would have given this product full marks, as a lip balm, but since it sits on the lips, even a little bit, I am going to take away one point.
Summing up the pros and cons for you:
Pros of SuperGoop Mint Fusion Lip Balm with SPF 30+ :
• Good SPF protection
• Lightweight texture
• Fresh sweet minty fragrance
Cons of SuperGoop Mint Fusion Lip Balm with SPF 30+:

IMBB Rating: 4/5
Final Verdict: This is the best SPF lip balm that I have ever used. It is handy, ergonomically designed and has an awesome minty fragrance. I just might repurchase this one.
