Review: ZA Vitamin Lip with Sunscreen SPF 26

Another post for u guys, and this review is on ZA's Vitamin Lip. (^^) Actually, I purchased this before my Maybelline lip balm. Why? Because it tastes funny. It's salty. Seriously.

This Treatment Stick(exact words quoted from the packaging) has SPF 26 with pure Vitamin C, and that was the main reason I purchased it.. So, with hope that I get soft pink lips, I picked this up from the shelves.

[Directions/ How I Use It]
Extend stick out slightly and apply on lips.
Can be worn under lipstick.
For me, I apply at night(during the weekends) so that my lips can absorb vitamins =)

[What It Does]
Helps prevent sunburn, to maintain a young healthy look.
Higher SPF gives more sunburn protection

-Citrus flavoured with pure Vitamin C
(Active ingredient Octinoxate 7.4%)
-Mineral Oil, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Paraffin, Ascorbic Acid, Trioctanoin, Octyl Methoxycinnamate, Petrolatum, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Tocopherol, Orange Oil, Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate,  Tocopheryl Acetate, Diisostearyl Maate, BHT, Glyceryl Diisostearate, CI 19140

I guess this is a lip balm if you are heading to the beach. Because the packaging stresses that it helps protect and prevent sunburn on lips. But, that doesn't explain the salty+sour(lemony) taste. (The sourness is from the pure Vitamin C?) It's a bit weird for me, frankly speaking.

The application is smooth and it doesn't feel thick or oily. In fact, I did observed that my lips look and feel softer after using this. So, this lip balm works well. Nevertheless, the 'treatment effect' isn't long-lasting as my lips felt dry if I do not apply it again.

As for how it looks like on the lips, there is a subtle shine but no noticeable color.

[Would I Buy It Again?]
Ratings: 5/10
Probably Not.
It's more expensive than my
Maybelline Lip Balm and yet it tastes funny.
But then, this might be a good choice for a day out on the beach or if you need to stay/work under the sun a lot (like I do).
