Kiehl's Lip Balm SPF 15

Hi all,

recently the weather seems to be have the mind on their own, but living in Jakarta, one thing for sure, there's always sun. It was really hot during the day, like the sun appears to be so angry at us, it keep on glaring.

Sunscreen has now officially become a daily skincare, if not, signs of dark spots and pigmentation will be unavoidable. It might not be instantly visible, but when they do, it will be harder to make them disappear. So, like always, precaution is better.

Like the skin, there are other part of our body that needs to be protected from the UV, the eyes for sure (hence there are so many sunglasses and even contact lenses with SPF), hair and lips too. Kiehl's have a lip balm that contain light SPF, it's SPF15.


Here's the details I've found from for all lip balm product:

A lip balm that protects and helps relieve chapped or cracked lips
  • Helps protect lips from the drying effects of wind and cold weather
  • Formulated with soothing emollients Squalanea, Lanolin and Wheat Germ Oil, as well as Vitamin E
and from

Lip Balm SPF 15

Protects and helps relieve chapped or cracked lips, with sun protection
Temporarily protects and helps relieve chapped or cracked lips. Helps protect lips from the drying effects of wind and cold weather. SPF15 sunscreen provides UVA and UVB protection.


And it seems like the key ingredient of this product is cotton seed oil:

Cotton seed oil is a pale yellow, odorless liquid expressed from various varieties of cotton. It is widely used in skin care as a formula softener.

Probably that's why the color of the lip balm is like a clear yellow oil.


Nevertheless, on the lips it just appears as clear oil. It coated the lips nicely and looks so glossy too. Suitable for daily used or on top of a lipstick for a fresh juicy look. The SPF 15 help protect the lips around 3 and a half hours against the sun.


Beside the glossiness, the lips also become softer, smoother and away from dryness, chapped and cracked.
By keeping the skin protected from UV, they'll stay moist longer too.

Since it contain sunscreen, try your best not to lick it. Clean with a makeup remover after each use as well.

Thank you Kiehl's Indonesia.
