SPF Yourself: Borghese Lip Treatment Moisturizer SPF 15.

SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but body lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!

What’s sleek, chic, and filled with sheer, moisturizing color? I’m talking about Borghese Lip Treatment Moisturizer SPF 15 ($20), beauties. Although this lovely little lip treatment smells exactly like my mother’s deep berry lipstick when I was a little girl, this is definitely not my mother’s lipstick.

Described as “vitamins for your lips”, this lip treatment is disguised as a typical lipstick but offers so much more. The sleek black tube houses a moisturizing treatment core that is surrounded by gorgeous sheer color. Even better, this lip treatment has SPF 15. Remember: even lips need sun protection! 

The shade I have been using is 04 Flamingo Gold. On me, it’s almost the perfect shimmer version of “my lips but better”. I love nearly everything about it! My only minor complaint is the scent. While I love the nostalgic factor, I think it could use an update. That said, let me rave about all goodness that Borghese packed into this little black tube!

First, I love the moisturizing balm core. I’m a bit of a lip balm addict, but I like color, too. This gives me the best of both worlds. In fact, if Borghese marketed the balm core itself, I’d be tempted to give it a whirl! Also, I love that this lip treatment applies smooth and evenly every time. I don’t need to whip out my compact mirror every time I apply in fear of streaky color. I can’t wait to try the other shades.
