My Take on The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm:

This is one of the BEST lip balms I have owned till date.  It’s milky white, smooth and moisturizes the lips, keeping them soft and supple for a good 3-4 hours (without eating or drinking) and even when you eat or drink, it stays on to some extent. It comes in a classy, metal tub unlike the other lip balms, which come in a plastic tub. :D It smells exactly like vanilla with a spice flavour and it’s really hard for me to resist sniffing it often.  The only problem is that if you apply more than required just because it smells nice and yummy, it’ll make your lips look “white.” :P (so does it mean its tinted?! :P)

Pros of The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm:

  • Super moisturising.
  • Staying power is good.
  • Good base for lipsticks/glosses or stains.
  • Lovely smell.
  • Paraben free.
  • Takes care of chapped lips too.
  • Price is fine for the quantity.

Cons of The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm:

  • Limited edition.
  • No SPF.
  • Gives a whitish cast if applied too much.
  • Unhygienic tub packaging.

Rating:

4.9/5 :D

Will I Buy The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm Again?

Definitely!! I just wish this wasn’t a limited edition product  :( or else it would have been my HG lip balm.

Do I Recommend The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm?

YES!! A big fat YES if you love the smell of vanilla and if you really need a very good lip balm, don’t think too much, just go for it! :)
