This is a neat little natural product...a nicely tinted balm that ALMOST looks like a lipstick, but applies and works like a healing balm. It has peppermint oil in it for a bit of freshness, much like the Cover Girl lip gloss product, but stays on much better. Even though it lasts longer than the CG gloss, I wish it would stay on even LONGER! I keep a tube in my lab coat pocket so I can re-apply a few times during the day. Shade is a subtle pinkish rose....with just enough color to be noticeable, but not overpowering.

    Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Bloom, .15 oz:

    I was looking for a natural lip balm with sunscreen, but with as little chemicals as possible, and this is all I had hoped for. It has a rating of 2 (low hazard) on the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. It has a nice minty smell and flavor, and it stays on for several hours (I only find myself having to reapply after I've been eating or drinking). The color is a very light, natural pink with a slight shimmer; it matches my lighter skin with freckles very well. When I ordered it the product picture did say SPF 8, but it looks like they've since updated the picture to show the correct SPF 15.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Bloom, .15 oz:

      I'm a gal who prefers to look as natural as possible, so I use little makeup in very neutral shades. I also prefer my sun protection to be in the form of physical ingredients (like zinc oxide or titanium oxide), not the bad chemical ingredients (like oxybenzone). This is why I like this product. If you're looking for a opaque lipstick, this isn't it.

      This is a pleasant smelling (peppermint) lip balm with physical (not chemical) sun protection and a little bit of pinkish natural-looking color. My plan is to use it whenever I plan to be outside long enough that my lips could get sunburned. I like the subtle color it adds to my lips. Just the right amount for a very natural look. When I want a darker color along with my sun protection, I wear my Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Fig over this Alba balm in Bloom.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Bloom, .15 oz:

      This is great as a chapstick but I would not recommend if you are looking for anything with color. I used to use Blistex Liptints but can no longer find that product. The Blistex product had a great light and natural color to it but this this product has barely any tint to it at all.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Mineral TerraTints SPF 15 Lip Balm, Bloom, .15 oz:

      My balm was very dry in the tube and kind of difficult to apply. It has a nice natural color, and a decent flavor, but it felt kind of strange on my lips. I only used it a couple times before I threw it out.

          I'm a nurse who works 12-hour shifts. I keep this in my pocket to use sporadically throughout the day, as hospitals are notoriously dry. It feel so good going on, and adds a little color, as well.

            i'm a little disappointed in the product, though it is chemical free. it's a very light tint that doesn't really do anything. it softens the lips while it's on. the mintiness is great...reminds me of a chocolate-mint chapstick i bought once. also, blistex used to sell an awesome pink-tinted lip balm, without the frost, and i loved it but can't find it anywhere.

              I love this stuff! It's the prettiest color, very subtle but just a bit darker than my actual lip color. I love the minty feel of it also, and the SPF. Overall it's awesome, I use it every day.

                I can't really expect a tinted lip balm to have much color, but it does give a nice sheen, adds moisture to dry lips and longlasting if you don't frequently lick your lips. I would buy again.
