Alba changed their formula for TerraTints Dawn. I purchased 2 last year and it was SPF18 using chem sunscreens. With this years purchase, I see it is SPF8 with physical sunblocker ZincOxide.
This newer formula, when applied, it is not nearly as metallic or frosty as the previous formula. It is much more creamy appearing on the lips - very very light.
Goes well with a tan but it would really make me look "washed out" any other time of year. As with the TerraGloss Dawn, I do apply a coat of Burts Bees on my lip prior to this, it seems to act as a primer to make the color/formula last longer.
These Lip Balms are great....they give you lasting color, almost a stain, does not melt in hot car environment, and a sunscreen all rolled into one. This color is very light pink, and is almost invisible in color, just a hint of color
Seemed to dry my lips out.
Alba makes one of the few lip balms I can use without having any type of allergic reaction. this is a very soft neutral pink color which I like to wear for work. Also like that it has some SPF
