The Body Shop Lip Balms Review

Hey beauties! Today I thought I would review the Body Shop lip balms! I have quite a few of these, 5 to be precise. The flavours I have are Passionberry, Strawberry, Raspberry, Watermelon and Satsuma. As you can see Passionberry and Strawberry have different packaging because it is the old packaging. My sister also has two more flavours which are Mango and Pink Guava, however I am not sure if they still sell these anymore.

The Body Shop are known for their fruity and yummy fragranced products, my personal favourite scent is by far Passionberry, although I love the Mango scent as well. These lip balms certainly have a lovely fruity fragrance. They all smell of what they're called so I'm not going to go into detail about each scent as I'm not very good at describing. They smell amazing and sometimes I just feel like I want to eat it haha!

I think the packaging is super cute, but to be honest I prefer the old packaging. They all match the colour of the product which is in the little pot. I'm not to keen on potted lip balms because the products gets all over your nails and then after you've put it on you have no where to wipe your hands. It's a bit of a mess as my hands are always sticky after I use this. 

The actual product is very nice, not so much moisturising but it does make my lips feel glossy. I wouldn't really suggest this if you are looking for a product that can help with dry lips as I feel this lip balm doesn't even do any good to my lips. In fact sometimes I think it actually makes my lips dry which makes me feel the need to put more on. But who knows, that could just be me I'm not sure. For £2 these are very good and affordable. They are also very slightly tinted, but not that much.

I'd say these are more of a lip gloss in a pot than a lip balm and the best thing about them is the scent. So if you are looking for a lip balm that will save your lips from being dry, definitely invest yourself in a Vaseline etc. But these are very cute and smell incredible.

Thanks for reading this blogpost I hope you enjoyed it! Bye!
