This is a review on the Body Shop 100% Natural lip roll on in Coconut and Rose.
I love the natural and slightly sweet taste and aroma in these lip roll ons. The packaging is very cute with a picture in the upper-right hand corner with a mint leaf, orange, berry, coconut or rose, depending on which flavor you chose.
It contains a roller-ball on the tip that allows for perfect application and feels really cooling and nice on the lips. The lip roll on is basically a nourishing lip oil and is VERY shiny. If you love an extremely NON STICKY and super duper wet glossy look, this is for you!!
Also I'm really allergic to fragrances/flavors on my lips/face and somehow this doesn't cause any reactions.
On a teeny tiny downside, your lips are left feeling a little lackluster after it completely dries. I supplement my lips with nivea lip butter after and I'm all good.
I'd totally purchase more. I want the other three flavors :)
I have the "berry"-one, and the smell/taste is really nice. It's a great idea with the "roll-on" thing. For some people. I feel like it's a love or hate thing, and I'm not a huge fan. Since you apply a oil on your lips, it's really shiny (almost too shiny) and it doesn't stick too your lips, so when you and drink, it will get of because it just stays there like a gloss and not a lip balm. - Not a big fan:)
I've read other reviews on how this roll on isn't moisturizing at all! I love the packaging, with the cute picture of the smell/flavour. The metal ball is also a cool sensation to feel when applying the balm/gloss. As for the moisturize part, it really works! When I first wore it at night, I admit it made my lips a bit skin peely kind of feel, though it was literal too. After that though, it's like a miracle! I put a lot on my lips when I go to bed, and it doesn't feel gunky or harsh. It's soft and slick. I also wear it during the day, but I only put one layer on just my bottom lip for the whole day. And when it's not on, my lips are really soft, so soft that I can't stop poking it! All in all, I would say that it's better than the other lip treatments from body shop and other brands! (Trust me, I am a lip balm/gloss addict!)
I'm struggling to work out whether I love or hate this. I love everything about it, except for one thing. Don't you hate when that happens?
I was in The Body Shop recently and these were by the till (of course) and I got sucked in (I'm the worst impulse buyer) and picked one up in Orange for £4.
I usually go for sweeter scents, so I surprised myself that I picked up the orange one over the coconut one, but I was thirsty at the time so maybe that swayed me more towards a more citrusy scent. Moving on...
I'm happy I chose that flavour - it is amazing! I love (almost) everything about it... the silver roller ball was cooling and hydrating. It allows the perfect amount of product release and the oil was both refreshing and moisturising. It wasn't sticky, which is perfect for me because it was a little windy and I hate the hair-stuck-to-my-gloss look! I can tell that one bottle will last me a while.
The cons... The staying power isn't great. I mean, it's not the worst, but I definitely need to retouch often. I wouldn't usually mine, but when the product fades, it also dries my lips with it. And I hate that tightening, lip-drying feeling. That's the only down for me, but obviously it's a big downer, so I'm not sure if I'll buy again but I'm definitely addicted to using it for now because of all the plus points.
I really actually like this roll on liquid balm. I think that the roller ball is very hygienic and you actually get a lot of product. i like the body shop because the pricing is average but you get a lot of product for what you pay. The actual balm is ok. I use it on top of a heavier duty lip balm because the smell is so fruity(I have the berry one) and the metal ball is soothing and cooling and comforting on my skin.
I love this lip balm! It's so refreshing and really moisturizing. You get a lot of product as well. I have the rose one, and it smells really sweet. Since I do a lot of sports, my lips always get really dry from sweat (ew). This helps a lot- you just glide it over your lips and it instantly moisturizes it. What I like most, however, is the fact that it gives out a glossy sheen. This helps if you don't feel like wearing lip gloss- just put this on! Perfect for a no makeup makeup routine, or just a good thing to have to enhance your features. And plus- who wouldn't want a good-smelling, lipgloss + moisturizing lipbalm in one? I'm going to try the berry one next, and maybe the mint!
I love this as a natural lip gloss, but I don't find it to be very moisturizing - which is surprising considering it consists almost exclusively of a bunch of natural oils. The Berry one smells very nice, but I didn't like the Mint version as I'm no fan of cooling products.
I bought three flavors of this when they just came out, currently using the orange one. I like how this leaves a glossy look on my lips, but isn't sticky like lip gloss. However, it doesn't really hydrate and dries very quickly on lips. I don't think I will buy this again
I have this in orange. It doesn't stay on lips very long and feels drying. It just sits on top of my lips and lips still feel dry and rough.
I have this in Berry. I love it! I have it in my bag with me at all times. It's good value for your money since you get a lot of product. It's super easy to apply with the roller ball and I love the scent. Provides a glossy effect without being sticky like lip glosses. It's very moisturizing and quite long-lasting for a lip balm. I am definitely interested in trying orange, mint and so on.
EDIT: I also purchased the Orange scent. Out of the two I prefer Berry. continued >>
