    I recently developed a severe allergy to "chemical-based" sunscreens (as opposed to "physical/mineral-based" sunscreens). This means that I can only use sunscreens whose active ingredients are only titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide. This fits the bill! Plus, it WORKS for my year-round VERY dry lips that sting and crack.

    All non-chemical-based sunscreens (sticks or lotions) will, by the chemistry of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, have a white tint to them - however faint or opaque. It's unavoidable. I found this stick to have a very, very faint tint that was usually not noticeable on its own, and completely unnoticeable under lipstick or gloss. Awesome!

    I have to have a stick of this with me at all times outdoors, and I've never found the larger size to be cumbersome in my pocket or purse. On the contrary, I REALLY like the larger tube. It's less flimsy and easier to find than "normal sized" lip balm sticks. Also, don't worry about the larger stick being too big and applying to the outside of your lips, because it doesn't.

    Some men may find the larger-sized stick is a more appealing "masculine" choice for chapstick. I gave this brand's unscented cocoa butter stick to my boyfriend, and he thinks the same thing. You can also peel the label off easily, so you've just go a unisex beige or white tube.

    Since I was diagnosed with my chemical sunscreen allergy, I chose to try Badger brand's sunscreen stick because I love their cocoa butter sticks so much. I see no reason to ever try another brand for lip sunscreen.

    I also own all flavors of this brand's cocoa butter lip balms. You can find my *positive* reviews for them on this website.

    I was really excited about this chapstick as it is one of the few that has minimal ingredients and only uses non-chemical sunscreens. However, in real life use it really was just too white. As I only use non-chemical sunscreens I am pretty used to products having a white cast and having to be rubbed in well. However, on your lips this product just didn't work out. It left a weird white cast even with a thin application and worst of all the white kind of gathered in any areas that had even minor chapping, so it looked weird and I didn't feel comfortable using it in public! I ended up buying the Lipcotz SPF 45 chapstick which is non-chemical and has a slight color to it so it does not go on white. It was pricey but I highly recommend that instead!

    Put something else on your lips

      Comments about Badger Lip Balm Stick, SPF 15, Unscented, .15 oz:

      This is almost the worse thing I have ever put on my mouth. It's like trying to rub on candle wax. You thought the Chapstick brand was bad in the 80s, this puts it to shame. It might have a use as lard in baking, but other than that do not waste your money. There are better SPF lip balms out there, like Blistex or Hawaiian Tropic.

          I bought this because I really like the unscented Badger lip balm and I figured adding sunscreen can't hurt. Boy, was I wrong! The balm goes on thick and white, it's disgusting. It's like putting pure sunscreen directly on my mouth. I'm sticking with the regular version!

              Well I hate my highly pigmented lips, so I love the fact that this lip balm gives me an almost nude lip appearance! No need for lipstick or lipgloss when I use this, because my lips are moisturized, protected from the sun, and I love the color this makes them! This really is fantastic for moisturizing my lips too, because mine are always very dry and peeling, and most lip balms/chapsticks don't help that much. But this one does!!! I am going to buy several back up tubes!

                The balm claims to have super secret chemical powers that magically turn the physical sunblock from white to clear. It does not. This balm is fine if you don't mind having white lips, but it's seriously weird-looking. This product is going into the trash for me.

                    I was very dissapointed with this product. I could have handled the bad smell and taste to be able to have a totally natural product if it didn't have the white pasty look.

                      It's great to not have nasty chemicals in your SPF lip balm, but this misses the mark. It goes on so white that it is embarrassing to wear. I bet I'd use it a lot if I were a life guard. For now I'll stick with the chemicals.

                          OK. Yes- this does go on a little more white than a regular lip balm- HOWEVER, for those who seem to complain about this....this is the price you pay for a non-nano, maximun protection sunscreen. It's the safest out there. So I guess it's just weighing the options...do you want it as healthy as it comes...meaning it's both safe health wise AND the best sun protection? I know I do. No, I'm not going to wear this out to dinner with my friends. But when I'm out on the water in the sun all day- YES I want the BEST protection I can get. Same goes for the sunscreens that everyone complains are too white. The clearer your sunscreen is, probably means there are nano ingredients (which may or may not be safe).

                          I'm giving this 5 stars for PROTECTION and HEALTH reasons...not for beauty purposes!! Enjoy great protection!!

                          As others have already said, it goes on white. We only use this at the beach so it doesn't matter. I wouldn't use it as my everyday lip protection. It works just fine. I think there are probably better choices out there for our use. I don't care for the smell.
