I've been suffering for the past few weeks from severe dry lips, and nothing seemed to do the trick. I had heard good things about The Body Shop Aloe Lip Care, but did leave me with smooth, chapped-free lips? Find out here.
I always take the best possible care of my lips: exfoliating frequently, applying balms morning/night and throughout the day...but for some reason these past few weeks my lips have been uncontrollably dry. I remembered hearing how much Essie Button loved the Body Shop's Aloe Lip Care, so I decided to give it a go.
Unfortunately, the results didn't thrill me. While I wouldn't say this is a bad product, it just didn't do much to help my chapped lips. I actually found it sticky and unless I thoroughly exfoliated before applying, it would sit on top of my lips and leave them looking shiny and almost emphasize the chapped, rough skin.
In defense of this product however, I think the reason i'm having such a rough time with my lips is because i'm slightly allergic to some skincare i've been using (still don't know if thats the case 100%), so it may be unfair to say that this product didn't help when it may be a lost cause at the moment. However, i've been using a Nivea lip butter and it's doing a better job at soothing my lips.
