Too waxy, not moisturizing
By Sue M
About Me Classic Style
Comments about LIPSCREEN SPF 50 - 4.40 gr:
I wish I could love this product. It is great that it has SPF 50. But to me it is a standard waxy feeling lip balm. I do not feel it is especially moisturizing. It does not have a nice shine on bare lips. I used to use a PC lipstick product in the invisible colour. It did only have SPF15, but I used it all the time, quite long lasting, and I would reapply regularly. And, it had a lovely very soft shine and was very moisturizing. I am lucky to have a nice colour in my lips and could wear just this and it looked lovely. The SPF 50 lipscreen is not nearly as nice. I would love it if they would bring back the other one, just the invisible colour.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I love that there is no odor or scent or color, just an everyday super hydrating balm that protects from the sun.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from St. Paul, MN
I have chronically chapped lips that have greatly improved since I started using the Lip and Body Treatment Balm by Paula's Choice. I bought this for daytime use for the sunscreen. It doesn't work as well as the treatment balm in terms of moisturizing but it isn't irritating and it does moisture just not as much as the balm. It does have a metal taste to it. I don't know why that it. It's a must have for me to prevent sun damage.

About Me Minimalist
At last ... a lip balm with no fragrance or flavor, and no irritating peppermint oil. This product is designed to soothe your lips and protect them ... not create more dryness so you are "addicted" to using the balm in order to feel better! Stop the madness with these peppermint-scented lip balms ... use Paula's Choice!

YUCK...But so good!
By Jessie Jess
from Los Angeles, CA
UGH! So frustrating! There's no denying that this chapstick works. I feel with a good chapstick, you should only have to apply it once, maybe twice, out of the entire day, not every half hour like with some lip products. This chapstick is definitly a good one. It lasts me all day. However, this gives me the worst taste in my mouth. I couldn't figure out what was causing this mysterious, slightly metallic, dank taste. Turns out, it was the chapstick. Very disappointing.While this chapstick DOES work very well, there are alternatives that work just as well without the terrible taste. I'll stick to my Lypsyl chapstick which costs more like $2, rather than $10.

Great but a little pricey
from San Jose, CA
About Me Beauty Conscious
I am a lip balm addict and this one has made it to the top of my list. It is a substantial lip balm so for those who just want a light layer of protection this is not for you. I have perpetually dry lips and this balm helps to protect and hydrate them throughout the day along with providing sun protection. It does not have an odd taste nor does it feel overly greasy or heavy. It i s a little on the pricey side though especially for lip balm which I am personally prone to losing or have multiples stashed throughout my house and bags. It would be great if Paula could come out with a multi-pack of maybe 2 or 3 at a discounted price!

I am befuddled. For years fans begged Paula to make a stick-type lip balm in the likes of her excellent "Lip & Body Treatment Balm" - and she refused, saying that this formula cannot be transferred into stick. Finally, she makes a stick lip balm! -- and it dries the lips!... Straight to the trash it goes. Very disappointed.
Great Sun Protection for Sensitive Skin
from Calgary, AB, Canada
Love this product. I apply lip primer first, then Paula's Choice Lip Screen, then I apply my lip stain on top. I can leave the house confidently knowing my lips are protected from UV rays.I find the product has no taste, is scent free, long lasting, and at noon I can see my lip stain has faded, but is still there, so I know the lip screen is still under the lip stain. I have sensitive skin, but I have no adverse reaction to this product. It is now my go to lip screen.The only down side for me is the Canadian dollar is very low right now which makes the product very high cost to purchase in U.S. dollars. I would like to see a Paula's Choice provide a Canadian distributor priced in Canadian dollars.

LOVE this product! NO BAD Taste! You will love it!
from Dayton, Ohio
This lipscreen is amazing! There is NO bad taste! I have another lip balm with sunscreen and it tastes so bad I just won't use it. This moisturizes, soothes, makes your lips feel great yet is not greasy. I like to put a lipstain or lip pencil on and then put this on top. I have managed to misplace my first one and immediately had to order another when I realized it won't be easily found. I only use Paula's Choice for my skin care and this has become another staple in my arsenal. I am always impressed how fast my orders arrive. Highly recommend, and if you don't like it, you can always contact customer service to return/refund, so there is no downside.

I really like this. It's basically a moisturizing chapstick with SPF. It's very easy to use, and I would love if they made a tinted version. It has no shine, it goes on matte, which makes me look a little pale. I didn't have an issue with the taste, and I am usually very sensitive to that. For instance, I can't use the other PC SPF lip product due to it being too strong a taste. Overall this is a great product, and I hope they expand the line to include tinted versions.
