The Body Shop Heavy-Duty Lip Care Review

Hi Lovelies 
'Winter is coming' as Ned Stark said in Game of Thrones! It really does feel like it now in the UK. sas its now autumn. In Autumn I like to change my skincare products to more heavy duty products because the colder weather does not do my skin any favours at all. When I was in my late teens I used no skincare products at all and my skin used to go red with the cold and my lips used to crack which was honestly horrible and sometimes quite painful too. My skincare regime has changed vastly over the years thankfully and I have found products that work well for me and the problems I had before are so much less now.

The Body Shop is one of my favourite shops at the moments because it has some amazing skincare products including the hemp hand protector cream which I just love and use most days. The hand cream was very thick and creamy and it honestly worked wonders on my hands, it keeps them soft and smelling gorgeous all day long. The hand cream is the main reason I wanted to try this Hemp lip balm.

Hemp Heavy Duty Lip Care - £4.00 
Cruelty free 
Heavy duty hemp oil for dry skin
Gives natural looking sheen 

About the lip balm
It has a very simple design like any other lip balm that you might see on the market with a design that you would expect to see from the body shop. The design is very similar to the other hemp products in the body shop so it should be easy to find when shopping for it. 

This balm is made from community trade hemp seed oil from France and as you can tell by the name of the product its heavy duty and its especially for dry lips especially during the colder weather or for whenever you need it really. Hemp oil is infused with fatty acids.

My thoughts
I have used this product for most days which is usually at the start of the day and also at the end and I can say I love this lip balm. I was worried that it was going to have a horrible scent but I was wrong it is very pleasant and very mild and, the good thing about this too is that even if you get it in your mouth by accident it won't leave a horrible taste in your mouth.

I love the sheen it leaves on my lips after applying, its a great base for a lipstick or lipgloss. I am not sure if it makes a lipstick last longer but it helps apply it a lot more smoother then it would on bare lips. I have had no issues with dry lips and any sensitivity with this which is brilliant because my skin can be a bit sensitive at times. 

My partner likes to use this too and he agrees it has a nice pleasant scent which isn't over the top and leaves his lips feeling soft ( he gets dry lips  easily and this balm has helped so much).

the body shop heavy duty lip care review
I would have to give this lip balm 10/10 because its such a good product and I am sure my partner would agree with me about that too. This balm is non sticky and glides onto lips like a dream and soaks into the lips without feeling greasy but leaving a nice sheen.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for a heavy-duty lip balm for the autumn/winter months. 

What is you're favourite lip balm for the autumn/winter months?

  1. Flawless lip balm for 10/10 score. I use lip balm in the morning, before I start my makeup and before bed I will make sure it's moisturised xo

  3. I always have a lip balm on hand, as does my Daughter. I have not tried this one before will pop in and get one when I go into town next x

    I have tried the body shops hemp range before, and it is so high quality and this is such a bargain at £4!! I might have to make an online order as they are always having sales and discounts xx

  8. I am a lipbalm fiend and go through so many, never tried one from The Bodyshop, so need to add it to my list x

  9. Hannah Heartss11 October 2016 at 21:27

    I am always looking for a new lip balm so might have to try this next x

  10. I'm glad this ended up being a great lip balm. The ingredients sound really good to me!

  11. Caffeinated Reactions11 October 2016 at 21:53

    My lips always dry out so much during the colder months so will need to get a lip balm like this to combat that!

  12. It is amazing that you would give the hemp lip balm a perfect score . It sounds great for me x

  13. Rhian Westbury11 October 2016 at 23:32

    I definitely need to keep my lips moisturised during the colder months, especially as liquid lipsticks tend to dry lips more than regular lipstick and I wear them quite often x

  14. Stephanie Merry12 October 2016 at 10:03

    My lips are so dry at the moment I need to try this - thanks for sharing x

  15. Oh this sounds like a fantastic lip balm - something that is often hard to find

  16. Ooh this sounds great as I hate sticky feeling balms so nice to know that this isn't like that! xxx

  17. Francesca Nelson12 October 2016 at 21:36

    I've heard some great things bout their hemp range and I'm keen to try now! Great that you'd give it a 10/10!

  18. Sounds like this is a great lip balm, handy to know ready for winter and chapped lips!

  19. Christine Dodd12 October 2016 at 22:44

    I rarely use lip balm but this one sounds great and is very good value for money

  20. Melanies Fab Finds12 October 2016 at 22:45

    I have been wanting to try their help range I have heard a lot of good things. This is another product I must add to my must try list.

  21. I only use lip products from Body Shop and they always do the job and keep my lips nice and soft.

  22. I love the Body Shop Hemp range but have yet to try this product. I will be rectifying that soon, especially a my lips start to suffer during autumn and winter xx

  23. Mummygadgetgeek13 October 2016 at 14:10

    This looks great, I'll check it out next time I'm in the Body Shop - my last lip balm fell victim to the kids so I definitely need a new one!

  24. I love The Body Shop hemp products and am in need of some lip revival right now, mine are so dry and flaky and Vaseline isn't cutting it. I'm overdue an order for The Body Shop so I'll be sticking this in my basket for sure!

  25. My mummy has to be careful what she puts in her lips as sometimes too much moisture triggers off cold sores. This looks like a good product though!

  26. I only have one hemp cream from The Body Shop and it's so sticky that I never actually use it.
    It's good to know that the lip balm is a better one!
