The Body Shop: Candied Ginger Lip Balm

"This non-sticky balm quickly hydrates lips. It has a fresh and zingy ginger scent."

This is another one of these limited edition Christmas products that I feel like I simply must have and I'm glad I bought this a few years back. Kudos to TBS marketing team! This is thick and balmy and smells oh-so-good. I'm a huge fan of ginger and this scent is just divine, spicy and a tad sweet. The consistency is very thick and I tend to use it overnight like some would use Vaseline.

*Unfortunately, I think it may have been discontinued as I don't see it available this year but I'm still holding out hope for future years so if you ever see some snap it up, it's good stuff!

The sweet and sour...

  • Thick, balmy consistency. A tad sticky when applied but moisturises really well.
  • Perfect overnight lip balm. Very much a winter product.
  • Love the ginger scent, spicy and sweet.
  • Quite a large pot, lasts a long time as you only need a smidge.
