it's fine i guess if you're up for a day of skiing or something... all i can taste when i have it on is the sunscreen, and it goes on quite thick, almost waxy.also the smell is really strong--very suncreen. ugh. great spf factor, was around $3, 3.50 canadian. its probably not a bad idea to have a tube lying around here or there if you spend alot of tiem doing extreme sports and whatnot, but if not just stick to your normal lipbalm with like the spf of 10 or whatever. it's fine.
