Product Review: The Body Shop Candied Ginger Lip Balm

I was at the mall a few days after Christmas to see if I can find some deals on some much needed clothing. As I was waiting for the stores to open I noticed The Body Shop. The store had signs posted all around that made me realize they carried all natural products. Well, some of the products were all natural. I've seen this store before but never shopped in it till recently. 

I was browsing to see what they had. There was a section that had nothing but clearance items. I saw a whole bunch of stuff and only one type of lip balm. This must not be a popular lip balm I said to myself. I had lost my Burt's Bees lip balm and needed a new one. I thought why not give this a try. I got the lip balm ($1.00- regular price $6.00), sanitizer ($2.00-regular price $6.00), and a hand washing soap ($4.00-regular price $8.00). 

Per the website
This non-sticky balm quickly hydrates lips. It has a fresh and zingy ginger scent.
*Instant hydration
*No parabens

PROs- Love the fact that it really is non-sticky
             Moisture, Moisture, Moisture
             Comes in a cute secure tin can
             You can wear alone or as a base for lipstick
             It was on clearance so major bonus points

CONs- I really have nothing bad to say about this product. However, when I first smelled it I wasn't a fan but as time went on I got use to it. The smell reminded me of vicks vapor rub but not as powerful.

I was desperately trying to find the ingredients to see if it was all natural but the label on the bottom of the tin can stuck together which made it difficult for me to peel off. Then I tried going to their website and couldn't find it to save my life. So I'm not sure if it's 100% natural.

Overall I like this product. I like it so much that I went back and got some more. Burt's Bees looks like you've got some serious competition.
