I don't usually review stuff but this deserves some props so I found a place to do it. I bought this product because it promises to protect about basically everything. I was particularly interested in the SPF because the sun ages your lips and they are one of your most important features! People need to protect them from the sun. The icing on the cake for me was the smell/taste. I wasn't expecting anything special but it's this great vanillay flavor. Yum! Oh and guys like vanilla so there's another plus ;)

This was my favorite every-day lip balm for several years. It's great for guys because it looks natural and provides more broad-spectrum sun protection than other Blistex products. But unfortunately, they reformulated the product sometime in past year, making it softer. Maybe so that it might "glide on" better in cold temperatures. But now the product melts/liquifies unless you store it in a cool place. For instance, I can no longer leave it the console of my car or in a backpack on a warm day. If I do, the contents spill out all over everything. Sometimes even keeping it in a pants pocket on a hot day will result in the same thing. Can't understand why companies make changes to products that are just fine the way they are.

      Comments about Blistex Five Star Lip Protection, SPF 30, .15 oz:

      I haven't used Blistex in a long time, so I was skeptical. However, I wanted a high SPF so I tried it out. I'm happy to report that It does not just sit on your lips, feeling nasty. Some soaks in, and what is left is a fine layer that just feels nice. It also doesn't get left behind on the glass after you drink. It doesn't taste like anything, which is a plus. It also helps my lipliner and lipstick go on smoothly. I will be buying this again!

          After a severe allergic reaction to EOS I started trying different Blistex products of which all are amazing but not this one. It made my lips look disgusting, I don't even use it when I'm at home. Blistex makes great lip balms, I can't go a day without using them but this one did nothing for my lips, it doesn't feel excesively bad on my lips but it looks just horrible.

              Found this product years ago at the store on clearance rack. Bought it and loved it. Went online looking for more and bought 12 more. Well gave a few away but ran out and was glad to see drugstore com still had some so I ordered 12 more. Blistex must have reformulated because this is not the same 5 star as before. Sending mine back.

                I've been using Blistex products for decades and the Five Star is my absolute favorite. It's thicker than other ones, goes on very smoothly and lasts a long time. I have super dry skin and apply lip balm many times per day but don't have to use this one as often. My whole family loves the vanilla smell

                  My husband works outside year around for a living and he is the pickest person about products. I've bought many different kinds of lip balms with SPF, because he works outside and he would have something to complain about each one , finally last year I bought this one as a stocking stuffer and he likes it. He keeps it in his work truck and he always has it close by. he says it lasts a long time and doesn't melt in the Florida sun. I like that it has a higher SPF, to me it smells a little like lemons but my husband thinks I'm crazy and it doesn't smell at all like lemons.

                    My lips burn with SPF 15 so I purchased this because of the SPF 30. I applied before heading outside for an all day poolside BBQ- worked great. Unfortunately when I went to reapply the entire tube had melted and poured all over my face/chest. My other chapstick had soften but was not completely melted. This would probably work great for skiing, but won't withstand a day in the hot sun.

                      I'm a sailor in SF Bay and in the sun constantly. This is the absolute best for my lips...the best protection that is long lasting and soothing. I never have sun chapped lips as long as I have this Blistex in my pocket.
