A great way to start off my Body Shop Vanillas Bliss Lip Balm review is to tell you Led Zeppelin was on Letterman last night. Go on, you know you want to head to youTube and catch it if you haven’t. Seeing Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones as, well, as old men is a surreal experience sometimes. It’s something I’ll never get used too.
When I was a teenager my bedroom was peppered with Robert Plant posters, shirtless, hair wildly waving around his head, and that gorgeous smile on his face. He was such a beautiful boy and perhaps a little bit of a gateway drug into the universe of vintage rock for me. Zepplin, Blue Cheer, The Who, and so many others have followed me well into my adulthood. I’m not THAT old but I have to say, they just don’t make music like that any more….!
Speaking of classics! The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Lip Balm may be my gateway drug into the world of the Vanilla Bliss Holiday 2012 Collection from the Body Shop and a possible instant classic!
Let’s take a look!
I don’t typically like vanilla flavored or scented anything but Vanilla Bliss could just change my mind. This delightful little lip balm is a tasty treat available for a limited time from The Body Shop for Holiday 2012. And the best news? There are Vanilla Bliss scented Bath & Body goodies to explore as well. I think I need to get to the Body Shop soon and explore them!
The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Lip Balm is one of three new lip balms the brand introduced for the holidays. I’ve already viewed both Ginger Sparkle and Cranberry Joy for you in a few of my recent posts.
This little balm is about the size of a quarter in diameter and has a similiar dome shape as an EOS Lip Balm. Marked at six dollars I was lucky enough to score it for merely three thanks to one of the Body Shop’s rather brilliant sales they had recently.
Like the other balms this applies transparently even though it has tiny flecks of gold sparkle in the balm. It tastes like a custard-y vanilla cake or pastry of some sort! It’s quite a pleasant taste and made me curious about other products in the Vanilla Bliss range as if they smell as good as this tastes I’ll be a vanilla convert!
The dome shape swipes easily across lips and has a balm-y texture and finish that I’ve likened to chap stick. It’s not glossy or shiny but does give lips a nice hydrating feel and lips feel softer after it has long since worn away.
I’ve glad I purchased these for myself as I find they make an excellent balm for carrying around with me when I’m not in the mood for touching up my lipstick or gloss.
They make an excellent little stocking stuffer as well!
Available from The Body Shop.
Anyone haul any of them yet?
