Cay Skin Isle Lip Balm SPF 30 with Sea Moss and Aloe Stem Cells

Cay Skin Isle Lip Balm is a balm that behaves like gloss. That is to say, it hydrates and nourishes lips but leaves an ultra-glossy finish and sheen that rivals some of our favorite lip oils. And not only does it protect against sun exposure, but it also features sea moss and vitamin E to protect against environmental aggressors and pollution. Plus, it has a subtle (but delicious) vanilla brown sugar flavor.

Packed with aloe stem cells, the balm effectively soothed redness and irritation while nourishing our skin. Plus, the brand recently launched two new hues in addition to the clear iteration — a neutral, rosy pink and a luxe berry shade that work as well on no makeup days as they do alongside full glam. 

Because this performs like a gloss, we found that it does have that slightly tacky texture that so often comes with a gloss. But the added benefits and protection more than make up for the few strands of hair that might get caught in its trap.
