Body Shop Lipscuff

RRP: £7.50

--What does the promo say?--
"A moisturising lip care product that gently exfoliates the lips to help remove dead skin cells, leaving the lips feeling smooth, soft and conditioned which evens the surface of the skin to better absorb lip colour, making it last longer. Dermatologically tested."

Sleek, unisex and very very handy. Has a silver lid and a black base, with the Body Shop logo burnished onto the slanted top of the lid.

As you would a normal lip product: pull off the lid and apply directly to the lips.

The stick itself is green, but on the lips it appears an off-white colour, which surprisingly doesn't look weird. It does, however, perhaps because of the exfoliate-y bits (crushed fig stone granules apparently), appear slightly uneven in application.

Scrubby, but nice, and you get the simultaneous feelings of exfoliation and moisturisation (thanks to the marula oil) for quite a long time. The menthol also makes your lips feel slightly tingly.

Mmmmm minty. Tastes good too.

Pretty good - it does last for hours - but you will need to reapply after eating.

--Value for money--
It is pretty expensive as far as lip care goes. However, I've seen nothing else like it, and it really is an absolute Godsend on those cold wintry days when a normal lip balm just won't cut it and you need that dry skin gone FAST. The speed at which it makes your lips smooth and kissable again is probably worth your £7.50 by itself.
