Known for creating some of the most beautifully scented sunscreen products on the market, Piz Buin is a leader in sun care innovation. Piz Buin In Sun Aloe Vera Extra Care Sun Lipstick (like most Piz Buin products) has two properties to it – it protects the skin on your lips from harsh UVA and UVB rays, but offers intense moisturisation too. Filled with nourishing aloe vera, it has a velvety texture that allows the product to glide on effortlessly. It has a beautiful vanilla scent and is clear when applied.
What our Beauty Masters had to say:
I have always been a huge fan of Piz Buin products and the sun lipstick is a sure winner.
The texture is smooth and colourless, thank goodness. I’m really not a fan of the “white mouth” some SPF lippies have and it really lasts during swimming sessions. I loved that it had SPF20. My lips were super soft and always had a healthy glow.
I’m even considering wearing this in winter due to the long-lasting effect this amazing product has and the summery smell will remind me that warm weather is just around the corner.

The Piz Buin In Sun Aloe Vera Extra Care Sun Lipstick is what I call absolutely fantastic! It glides on easily and stays on forever. That is until it is scrubbed off, but even then the effects of the care it has provided your lips are still noticeable. You can also go outside with confidence knowing that your lips are not going to get burnt and are very well protected. I had tried multiple products before this to nourish and moisturise my lips, however nothing at all seemed to work instantly and for long. That was until I discovered Piz Buin which is a lifesaver for lips in any condition. Piz Buin lip balm leaves my lips oh so soft, smoochable and not sticky at all. Best of all is the awesome smell of cupcakes and its SPF20 which offers adequate protection against the gruelling sun.

Piz Buin In Sun Aloe Vera Lipstick in SPF20 is a wonder product for all South Africans. It is actually a lipbalm with aloe vera to soothe dry or chapped lips. It also has the added benefit of medium sun protection against the harsh environmental elements. It comes in a brown tube, nothing fancy; it is not tinted and has a lovely subtle vanilla scent that you can almost taste. As it is neutral, it is perfect for both men and women. It glides on beautifully keeping lips soft and moisturised. I have been using it for a week and my lips definitely look smoother for longer. I like that it is not waxy and does not leave your lips with a sticky feeling. But because of the texture being light you do need to reapply frequently and I am not too sure the tube will last too long. This is as directed by the manufacturer to enhance the SPF and your lips tend to dry out after exposure. I used it under a tinted lipstick as well and it helped to make my lipstick last longer and provided a light gloss finish. I think I preferred the result paired with a lipstick as opposed to on its own and I like that I am getting the nourishment factor as well. Will definitely buy even if it is on the pricey side due to the benefits.
