I use it after I apply my lip liner and before lipstick/gloss. However, if I'm out in the sun I'll reapply the Lip Balm pretty frequently. I ordered it due to the high SPF content hoping for the best but expecting a nasty tasting product. Boy was I surprised! Not only does it protect our sensitive lips from the cruel sun, it tastes and smells delicious! Fruity and sweet but not overbearing. Will reorder when I run out :)

I was drawn to the broad-spectrum SPF 45, and the promise of a tropical scent. The high SPF rating seems to be effective, as long days in the desert have yet to result in a sunburn with this product. However, I was disappointed by the fact that the product wears off so quickly; one minute it's waxy and heavy, the next it's gone. That fact alone makes me apply and reapply the balm all day long, to be sure I'm still getting the SPF...and perhaps a little moisture, which this balm doesn't really provide. The tropical flavor is actually pretty gross after awhile, and unlike the product itself, never seems to go away. Plus, like other high-SPF lip products, the sunscreen tastes terrible when it gets in your mouth. I don't plan to repurchase this balm.

Comments about Hawaiian Tropic Moisturizing Lip Balm Sunscreen, SPF 45, Tropical, .14 oz:

I do like the SPF factor. I do like the taste (coconut). I think it's too dry as a stick don't feel it makes lips softer, but i'm fairly sure it protects against the elements. I prefer a gel tube with a Vaseline consistency.

Comments about Hawaiian Tropic Moisturizing Lip Balm Sunscreen, SPF 45, Tropical, .14 oz:

I can't find this lip balm anywhere but on-line. It's the only one that's really effective for me as I'm out in the sun a lot. The only thing I don't like is the flavor. Eck. They made a Vanilla Mint but can't find it.

      Tastes Terrible

          Comments about Hawaiian Tropic Moisturizing Lip Balm Sunscreen, SPF 45, Tropical, .14 oz:

          I was very disappointed in this lip balm. I love tropical scents and have always been a fan of Hawaiian Tropic products. I noticed the "Tropical" lip balm and had to have it. I read the reviews and noticed that one of them mentioned a terrible chemical taste. I am not one that typically buys lip balm for the taste and I don't believe that I lick my lips excessively so, since the other reviews were positive, I thought this wouldn't be a problem. I was wrong. The chemical taste was immediately apparent and I had to wipe the lip balm off. It must not be a consistent formula because I can't believe the reviews were overall so positive based on the experience I had ... you may be lucky. I will not purchase this again.

              This lip product tastes awful. Great, it has sunscreen but smells and tastes like rotting cocoanuts. I hate it. Doesn't really last long, after a while will start going pasty white on the corners of the lips, protects, but just tastes terrible.

                  we were going on vacation (in the sun), so i picked this up because i was drawn to the higher spf. i used it once, and gave it away. i anticipated a tropical flavor (maybe a little pineapple? perhaps some coconut?) the flavor was a bitter, medicinal taste. and i'm NOT a lip licker. so if *i* could taste the awful flavor, anyone could. i do not recommend this.
