I first used this when I was at the pool w/ a friend. It makes your lips feel moisterized and it has SPF in it so thats always good. It also has a waxy base that keeps it on for a long time in the pool. maybe about 2 hrs. The best thing though is that the container is great. I cant tell you how many times I have dropped it in the pool or left it in my jeans pocket and it got washed. The little cap fits really snugly and it keeps the stuff dry and protected.
