I first started using Body Shop Lippy Balm what seems like a hundred years ago. I was instantly hooked. My dry, cracked lips felt so much better almost at once. Some products I tried would also give me that result, but it seemed that if I didn't constantly reapply them, my lips would get worse than they had been before. I didn't have that problem with lippy balm. It comes in many different flavors, which is nice because I know everyone has a favorite. If you live near a Body Shop store you can smell them and see what you think will work best for you. Some are definitely stronger than others. When I look at the itty bitty container it comes in, I am surprised how long it lasts, especially since it is used a few times a day. A little really goes a long way. The only complaint I have about the product is that they now give you less product and charge more money for it. Like I said, i have been using this forever though, and I guess prices do go up. I still think that it is a value. It outlasts and outperforms cheaper products.
