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.

So I have two of these in the pot form. Raspberry and watermelon. I really love the smell of both, almost like ring pop candy flavors. They are quite sweet but not too overpowering which I really like. I'm really happy with the effectiveness of these. They last long on my lips and they are super creamy and smooth. In the summer I use them on their own but in the winter I usually wear something stronger underneath them. I don't really love the pot but I always have sanitizer for my hands with me so its not that big of a deal. I f you ever have any problems with flaking lips however, I suggest a soft tooth brush with a bit of lipbalm on your lips and brushing them softly for a few minutes. Home made lip scrubs also work well.

Lip balms and butters are a very subjective topic because people have different opinions and skin types. I really like the smell of this lip balm and it worked very well for me. i think this is better for the summertime ( which is when i used it) because of the fruity flavor and the light layer it leaves on the lips. It worked very well for me. I used it along with eos lip balms and I applied every 4 hours and after eating. I don't know if I will repurchase because of the price of individuals. But I got mine for 3 for $10.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Aloe Lip Treatment

I really liked how this product make my lips feel. It has a natural sweet smell to it but after application it tastes bitter. I'm pretty sure that's the aloe taste though. I got it for about $10 which is expensive. I will not repurchase.
I really like the fact that these are sold in packs of three. all of the flavors are a bit too artificial for my taste but they still smell more or less like a lip smacker. In general, the blistex formulas work very well for me. However, I don't know if I'm the only one who experienced an orange ring on my outer mouth with the triple tropical flavor. I don't know if I will buy this product again because of the orange one but if I can find the berry or melon one on their own I will for sure.
I think this product is great for every day. It does what it claims however it will not give you the "false look" like some people expect from every mascara. I wear this to school and because it doesn't it looks very natural. I love this mascara :)
I really like this lip balm. Some people hate the smell. I think it kind of smells like honey and a bit of the medication. This is my fave for overnight, dry winter days or colds. Other wise my day lip balm is eos because it is light and refreshing.I really can fell a bit of burning when I first put the blistex on my lips I can feel the burn but I know its working. I have to say tough, it is very thick so the stick is a bit difficult to put on and I don't like to dip my finger in pots, I usually buy the cheaper one. but after one application, this stuff works like magic. A downside to it though is that it is not all natural or organic(major reason I like eos and why I don't use it every day). Overall though I think the effectiveness is most important and unless your allergic to the ingredients, it works on everyone. I'm not too pickey but I reccomend this for why I use it not your everyday lip balm. It would probably work really well under a lipstik in the fall or winter. hope this helped you!

This one was my favorite out of them all! I have tried the Summer Fruit, Lemon Drop, Sweet mint and Strawberry Sorbet and this one definitely is the best for me scent wise and conditioning too. I like it because some lip glosses and balms have heavy scents and gross odors and feel like I smothered a layer of bacon fat on them. But this one has a light refreshing scent and worked well on my lips. I do reapply often but I have very dry lips and I prefer to use a more heavy duty lip balm for night time so it won't wear off. Overall though I think they are great for the day time to keep in your purse, desk or backpack.
