As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

It's easy for lips to become chapped, sunburned, etc. spending so much time outside at the barn. Effol Lip Balm contains a pure formula with palm oil, SPF 20, and a light vanilla scent. Made in Germany.

  • Palm Oil

    Effol Lip Balm is rated 4.4815 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Taste and Packaging The lip balm smells great, goes on smoothly. The problems lie in the packaging. Every time you press the balm on your lips, it rotates down into the tube. A more traditional cap would be easier. Also, taste! The balm doesn't taste bad, per say, but leaves a very odd after taste in the back of your throat. Overall, this lib balm is great for softening and sun protection, but has some major drawbacks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff!! I can't get enough of this lip balm. Starting using it last year and now I purchase multiple tubes whenever I can find it. Beats any other lip balm for softening and protection, especially in the winter time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this because I was too lazy to go to the store and get some more chapstick for myself.(SmartPak is just a little too convenient sometimes! lol) I love it so far. It is really firm gloss so you don't use 1/2 a tube everytime you put it on like some other brands I've used. The only thing I don't like is the applicator, the cap runs the whole length of the tube. I like the traditional caps a lot better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Summer This lip balm smells great. I love the texture - it goes on smoothly and isn't sticky at all. Unlike a lot of other lip balms, I never taste it while I'm wearing it. The SPF is what really sold me on this - it helps keep my lips from becoming chapped and sunburnt during a long show day. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lip balm! Nice light scent and creamy texture that goes on smooth and lasts on your lips. I've not had a problem with getting white lips after I apply it like some other lip balms I've tried. An added bonus is that it's 20 SPF as I'm very sensitive to the sun. I think I've found a new favourite!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells nice and moisturizes well too In the winter it is a constant battle trying to keep my lips from chapping. This helped and smelt delicious too. My mom keeps stealing my sticks of it though so I keep having to buy more.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yucky taste! The lip balm smells very nice, but once its on your lips and if you happen to get a taste of this, Yuck, must be the sun screen in it. I won't use this and neither will my daughter or grand daughter. I tried to give them my 2 tubes and they tasted it and said the same thing, YUCK!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! not sticky! I usually don't wear lip balm/lip gloss because I hate the sticky feel...but this is great and it smells the vanilla!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthwhile buy The very first time I went to open the lip-balm container the stick of chap-stick fell out. The package was brand new and should not have had that problem. I pushed it back in and it hasn't come out again. This product smells amazing!!! I wish air fresheners came in this scent. Also, be careful when applying this product. Too much back-and-forth per say leads to white lips.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from not my fav but good I bought two of these lip balms and although I prefer my usual, my daughter (14yrs old) likes it very much. I must say because of the vanilla, the gnats stays away from my face more.Funny, my husband asked me what I ate when we kissed! He says it smells nice. Makes me wonder what my usual lip balm "says" to him! LOL

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lip Balm I was really excited to try this lip balm and I was not disappointed. It goes on light but stays for a while. No more chapped lips. Love it! Will definitely be getting it again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lip Gloss! I love lip gloss and usually have at least 5 in my purse at any given time. This is one of my favorites. It smells and tastes delicious and makes your lips super soft. The horse logo on the front is cute and an added bonus. I waited months for this while it was on back order, and it was worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little pricey, but fantastic I LOVE this balm! My husband is even threatening to steal it from me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Balm! I'm a bit of a lip balm fanatic, so when I saw this (and the cute horse pic on it) I thought I would give it a try. Glad I did b/c it has become an everyday staple for me. It is not sticky, goes on really smooth and lasts longer that most balms. It has a great smell and tastes good too. I also used it for stocking stuffers at the barn this year-it was a hit!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is the first time I have tried the effol lip product and have found it to work as it was described to work and it has a great taste to boot.The product stays in place and keeps me from getting sun blisters on my lips. I stay in the sun for hours at a time and teach and this is really long lasting.
