The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Lip Balm Review

I always love when The Body Shop brings in their holiday collection, it makes it really feel like Christmas is coming. Now, Christmas has come and gone, but I stocked up on The Body Shop's Spiced Vanilla Collection so it feels like Christmas all year round! This year there were three scents: Cranberry Joy, Candied Ginger, and Spiced Vanilla. Spiced Vanilla has always been my favourite, as I love all things vanilla!

I love lip balms from The Body Shop, I own a lot of them and will always continue to keep buying them! Their holiday collection lip balms come in different tins than their normal lip balms. These holiday balms come in 15 ml metal tins, as opposed to the normal 10 ml plastic containers. Spiced Vanilla is a nice twist on the common vanilla scent that we all know. This lip balm applied well, and even though it's beige in the tin, you can't see any colour once it's on the lips. This lip balm doesn't stay on forever, you will need to reapply every couple of hours or so. I'm constantly reapplying lip balm out of sheer habit so this doesn't bother me at all.

I find that The Body Shop has constant deals going on all the time, so I bought this for $3.00, half of the normal $6.00 price. You might be able to find this on clearance now since the holidays are over!

What is your favourite lip balm? Have you tried any of the holiday scents from The Body Shop?


  1. I love lip balm too! My current fav is Balance Me Rose Otto Salve x

  2. I really like the body shop's cranberry lipbalm. But I have to say I love lush ones better. Their whipstick is a delicious blend of milk chocolate orange which smells like holidays to me:) And their honey trap is gorgeous.White chocolate,honey with a hint of mint.

  3. I've never heard of that product Beauty Balm! I'll have to look for it :)

    I also love Lush's lip balms Pandora's Box! Have you tried their lip tints?

  4. Oh I really liked this one and Cranberry Joy!! :D I still have those two from not last Christmas, but the one before!! XD

    1. I'm not really a fan of the cranberry scent in general so I didn't give this one a try! Oh they are lasting you so long! I go through lip balms way too fast, I'm constantly reapplying!
