Green Tea SPF Lip Balm



Some folks panic if they don’t have their phone. Oh, who am I kidding, that’s totally me. But I really get the shakes if I can’t find my lip balm. That is a true emergency!

This green tea-infused lip balm has a dose of SPF to protect your pout this summer. The zinc oxide leaves a slight white tint on your lips initially that goes away as it melts into the skin. Apply this balm, layer a pretty gloss on top and you’re good to go.
