I've been using this stuff for years. Even after trying other brands and products, this is still by far my favourite. No other formula works the same for my lips. It hydrates extremely well, has a light and delicious fragrance -- one of the only scents I can actually tolerate from The Body Shop nowadays -- and a single tube lasts quite awhile. You could even use it as a cuticle balm, if you so choose. I just wish the price was a tiny bit lower per tube.
This is one of the few lip balms I have re-purchased. Most don't live up to my expectations: lasting moisture, portable, nice taste - doesn't seem that hard, right? I love the scent/taste of this balm. To me it is more chocolaty than the chocolate one. And being in a stick rather than a pot is much more convenient. It also performs great under lipstick.
I suffer from dry lips year round and lipsticks make it worse. I bought the Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick on a whim when I was ordering other items from the Body Shop online. I was wowed! It glides on buttery-smooth but doesn't leave my lips feeling waxy or greasy. It nourishes my lips and leaves them feeling so soft. I noticed a difference with one application. I use it under my lipsticks to provide a bit of a moisture barrier. Plus, the Body Shop regularly has deal so it is easy to scoop this one up on sale.
This lip butter smells delicious. It moisturises well but if you have crazy chapped lips I would purchase something more 'medicinal'. This does make my lips nice and soft though.
Oh and its created using cocoa beans from Ghana helping farmers send their kids to school. Great cause!
