The Body Shop Aloe Lip Treatment


My lips hate the winter. They get so dry and chapped, sometimes to the point where they're painful. They also tend to get really bad when I've done a few shifts at work on the run without a day off, I don't know why this is but I'm convinced it's something to do with the salt off the fries!

I find that a combination of Carmex and Burt's Bees tends to work for me, but I had a £20 off a £40 spend at The Body Shop, so I decided to give this a try seeing as I technically only paid about £2.50 for it.

I found that it is really soothing on the lips and provides a nice relief when my they are particularly bad. However I don't think that in the long term it really made much difference to my lips. I have been using it in the daytime and also overnight with an extra thick layer but I have to admit I don't notice any difference when I wake up. Also, I don't know if it's just me but the thought of applying a minty lip balm to chapped lips feels a bit strange to me, especially when they are at their worst it's just the last 'flavour' I would want to apply to my lips. This in particular scent isn't too overpowering but I still feel that I would much prefer a fruity or a warming scent.

Overall, I do enjoy using this for an instant relief for chapped lips but I wouldn't say that it worked for me as a 'treatment'.

  1. Hello. New to your blog and impressed :)

    I haven't tried this particular body shop lip treatment but I have with their Chocomania lip balm. I think the same of you, their lip products are more about smell, and a quick treat rather than an actual soloution. Look forward to more of your posts soon.
