Lip balms? Not really very manly. But what if it’s tactical? Well, I guess that changes things, so it might be time to make room in your EDC carry for this Cannon Balm Tactical Lip Protectant.
Like regular lip balms, it’s designed to soothe sore and cracked lips, so your kisser remains… uhm… kissable even in less-than-favorable climates. Unlike them, it doesn’t come in bubblegum, cherry, and other annoyingly sweet flavors, so you can still feel manly the entire time you’re wearing a bona fide beauty product on your lips. At least, that’s the hope.
The “tactical” part in the Cannon Balm Tactical Lip Protectant isn’t just lip service, either. At least, not entirely, since the preparation is formulated to withstand extreme temperatures (both zero-degree cold and 125-degree heat), making them suitable for use even in the harshest conditions. Cannon Balm also claims it’s been tested by active-duty military personnel in the field, which makes me think of an unfortunate soldier that the entire battalion is making fun of for putting on lip balm in the middle of battle.
Fortunately, it’s about four times bigger than the typical Chap Stick tube you can get at the grocery check-out lanes (they claim it’s as wide as a screwdriver handle), so you can tell the boys it’s actually medicine or something whenever you decide to apply it in public. It’s made from “premium, natural and organic ingredients” with SPF 15 to protect your lips from the harsh rays of the sun.
Available now, the Cannon Balm Tactical Lip Protectant is priced at $9.
