NEW Jack Black The Stick Natural Lip Balm

Exciting news in the world of lip balm today! Did you hear? The iconic Jack Black Lip Balm (one of my favorite lip balm products ever) now comes in a stick!

I just spotted this in the "What's New" section on the Ulta site--you can check it out for yourself HERE (it's also on the Jack Black site HERE). Retail price is $7.50 and right now it only comes in one flavor (Fresh Mint). That's the same price as the tube version, but you're getting 0.15 oz. in the stick, while you get 0.25 oz. in the tube. That's a big decrease in product considering that the price is the same, but the ingredients are very different between the two:

  • STICK (Fresh Mint): Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Beeswax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate.
  • TUBE (Fresh Mint): Active Ingredient:  Avobenzone 3.0%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Petrolatum 40.2% Inactive Ingredients:  Beeswax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, C 18-38 Alkyl Hydroxystearol Stearate, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Flavor, Lanolin, Microcrystalline Wax, Ozokerite, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Polyglyceryl-3 Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate  

As you can see, the stick version does not contain sunscreen, nor does it contain petroleum, lanolin, and other ingredients that are present in the tube version. So it's not like they took the original tube formula and just stuck it in a stick. This is essentially a completely different product. But still exciting if you're a Jack Black fan and love stick lip balms, right?


  1. This is off topic, but where can I find the best deal on a Clarisonic? I don't know which one I want yet, not quite sure of the differences. I see some sets at Sephora and Macys but I am not sure of the best deal. Any recommendations?

    1. Aaaah, I'm guessing you missed my blog post a few days ago! There was crazy 50% off flash sale on the Clarisonic site and many devices were included! I'm so sorry you missed that!!! Maybe try signing up for my text alerts so you don't miss the next time they do it (look for the graphic on the sidebar of my blog to sign up). I really don't know of any current deals that are THAT good, but right now Macy's has several Mia 2 devices for $119 (regularly $149) which is 20% off. Also, Sephora has the Smart Profile Set for $199 (regularly $265) but that's really all of the deals I know about right now (maybe someone else here can chime in). So sorry! Here are those links:

    2. Upcoming TSV on Qvc from Clarisonic on Tuesday May 17. I don't know what the item is yet, but it's in their program guide.

  2. I am actually really glad for what the stick doesn't have! I'm horribly allergic to -benzone sunscreens! I wouldn't have minded the lanolin though.

  3. I do love the lip balms in the tube. I know I should always wear balms with sunscreen on my lips but I don't often do it, and when I reach for Jack Black I know it's included. I'm always purchasing lip balms, though.... :-)

  4. I saw this on Sephora app and it wasn't in stock so I assumed it was new (looks like it is stocked now)...I like my lip tube Jack Black a lot, tho usually prefer solid stick lip balms...which I have a ton of, but I'll probably end up with this eventually. I do like the squeeze tube version has SPF tho...hopefully eventually so does the stick.

  5. There's new packaging for Benefit products on Ulta webstite
