Great moisture but read the ingredients... (4 stars)

If you're looking for a lipbalm that provides great moisture and can hold up to dry climates LypSyl's Intense Protection LypMoisture is terrific. I love the one-hand slider shaped like a bee on the side and it has a lovely minty flavor. The big beef I have with it is that it contains petrolatum which is controversially known as something Natural product purists, specifically those who want organics, might not want to use.

Petrolatum is really on the lower risk side as far as toxicity and harmfulness goes but if you've been following the blog for long you know I'm a stickler for reading the ingredients and watching for things that pose risks or cause irritation. Aside from that these are all ingredients you should love, especially the Shea and coconut oil which are both are great moisturizers.

Here in Montana we've had a freaky unusual warm spell and there've been bad fires all around making our already naturally dry air much worse. My lips are usually always struggling to stay moist so I routinely apply lipbalm throughout the day and a lick coat before bed each night. I've really loved LypSyl because it has such a unique shape which makes sure I get even coverage. Not only that... it lasts! After my first application in the morning it's survived through my breakfast and coffee and into lunch time before I need more.

While I would recommend LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisture for just about anyone who's not allergic to beeswax (I actually know someone who is), I would specifically recommend this one for men. It doesn't contain SPF which I would recommend having in your lipbalm if you work outside but the shape, size, and non-girly tube make it a great one for dudes. I especially think guys will love the single-hand slide (that little gold bee on the side) and mint flavor.
