Protect Your Lips for Summer with Lip Drink (Review and Giveaway)

I didn't have a book or DVD or other product review for today ... until now!  My friend Petula is running a giveaway on her blog, Petula Writes, and has given me the opportunity to join in.  Note that prizes will be awarded across participating blogs, so each blog may have fewer than five winners.


I haven't received any product (or any other compensation) for participating.  The above photo and the quotes below are from her review.
jane iredale's Lip Drink SPF 15 is sold in the shades of sheer, buff or crush. I like this about this product because normally when you purchase lip balms with sun protection you're limited to a clear choice. The Lip Drink, which is recommended by The Skin Care Foundation, is made to protect your lips from the coldest to the hottest weather and everything in between. 
I prefer to use products on my face that are natural and environmentally friendly, and you'll get this with this lip protector. It only contains natural moisturizers and sun blocks. 
When I first applied Lip Drink I wasn't too crazy about the feel of it. I thought it seemed a little gritty, but now that I've worn it a few times it's definitely not gritty; it seems to have a mild exfoliating feel. I've tried the balm with and without lipstick. Without lipstick my lips maintain a very moisturized feel that is not greasy. When I applied lipstick it went on smoothly and looked silky - quite beautiful, if you ask me.
If you're going to use this product strictly for sun protection on your lips then you should reapply every two hours and more often if you're swimming or participating in any water-based activity. I would surmise that if you're wearing lip color over it that you should not need to apply it as often and especially not if you're using a lipstick with SPF.
Giveaway details:
Five readers will each receive a coupon code for jane iredale Lip Drink SPF 15, 0.14 oz ($15 value), which is slightly bigger than your average lip balm. (You'll be able to choose whether you want your coupon code mailed  to you on a pretty card from Skin1 or emailed to you.) 
The entries are easy, just use the Rafflecopter below. What else should you know? This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian readers. It starts on June 2nd at 12:01 a.m. and will end June 23rd at 11:59 p.m. Coupon codes expire August 5th.
