Brand Overview

CeraVe's a brand that usually gets it right when it comes to providing good skincare for a good price, and its Healing Lip Balm is no exception.

This comes in a standard lip balm tube, but what's inside sets it apart. The balm has a buttery texture that melts into lips, making them feel instantly moisturized. Along with numerous emollient ingredients, this also contains CeraVe's hallmark mix of skin-restoring and skin-replenishing ceramides.

Perhaps best of all is that this provides broad-spectrum SPF 30. The delicate skin of the lips needs sun protection just as much as anywhere else on your body, so this is a welcome inclusion!

The lightly sweet flavor comes from stevia leaf extract, a non-fragrant plant extract, instead of an ingredient with the potential to irritate skin.

Aside from distinct personal preferences, there's nothing about this lip balm we can fault, and it certainly bests most SPF-rated lip balms from sun care lines.

CeraVe At-A-Glance

This expanding collection of skincare products keeps things gentle and effective with fragrance-free formulas, many of which are more state-of-the-art than any other product in its price range or pricier versions at the drugstore. In short, this line is a real find!

CeraVe uses a delivery system the company refers to as Multivesicular Emulsion Technology, which releases key ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid over a period of several hours. Although this technology is undoubtedly helpful, such time-delayed delivery systems aren't unique to CeraVe, and the fact remains that most of the ingredients they use are very helpful on their own, no matter what delivery system you use.

The important point is that ongoing, consistent use of this kind of moisturizer designed to repair the skin's barrier function will result in smoother, softer, healthier skin.

It is for these reasons that most CeraVe products are definitely worth considering, especially at this price. You'll find a options for moisturizing, cleansing, broad spectrum sun protection, and baby care.
