Mission Skincare Lip Balms

Mission skincare is a new line of athlete inspired products , called "high-performance, athlete-engineered skincare™ "

To quote the site:
" Engineered in MISSION Labs, the entire MISSION Product line is designed, and has been proven, to meet the specific needs of athletes across all sports. With vital nutrients and antioxidants, MISSION Product™ is the best equipment for your skin, allowing athletes to focus on their sport and maximize their performance."

Now what does all that mean to me? It means great lip balms, and I can totally get behind that.

Misson has 4 balms . 3 Lip Balmer SPF 15 and Lip Protector SPF20 which I am wearing as I type this.

The Lip Balmers come in 3 flavors:
-Snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler's Sweet Vanilla
-Skateboarder Ryan Sheckler's Orange
-Mission Mint

They all smell great and work well, but I am partial to the Orange of course. It kind of tastes like Tang if I recall that taste correctly.

The Sweet Vanilla is super sweet and cookie like. If you like the Philosophy 3in1s , then you need this lip balm.

They all last really long and moisturize well., They have no color or shine and come in very neutral tubes. These are unisex for all.

The Lip Protector SPF 20 is the more endurance version. It is in a squeeze tube and more emollient. It has stronger SPF, and a hint of gloss shine that make it even more of a barrier to wind etc.

All of these are paraben and preservative free, have Vitamin E, and moisturizing oils which vary depending on flavor.
Mission also has an SPF 30 stick called Daily Offense that is on my to buy list. Easy to swipe on any time, it is sweat resistant and anti sting.

Rounding out the line are Foot Synergy Gel and After Sun Gel.

You can find these at stores like Foot Locker, Champs, The Vitamin Shoppe and online at

Lip balms are all $3.99
Daily Offense Stick $8.99
