The overwhelming fragrance is one of sweet orange (think Spangles/Opal Fruits) rather than the fresh orange.
The roll-on has very little flavour, there is the noticeable orange fragrance to begin with, the flavour, however, is barely discernible and is a slight oily taste, not unpleasant but not anything spectacular either.
Supplied in a simple clear glass container featuring an opaque plastic lid and the whole standing at 85mm, this roll-on is about the size of a lipstick and is applied by utilising the popular metal roller ball as utilised in the caffeine eye roller-ball treatments. The glass is covered with a paper label that is mainly white and features orange slices to tempt you. The text is orange and the instructions are on the side and are simply a diagram of the container being shaken from side to side.
The roll-on offers a lovely shimmery clear gloss and can be used as a lip gloss effectively. The roll on does not bleed or run, but stays put really well/quite well when eating and drinking too. Pleasant and easy to apply.

The Roll-on offers moisturisation and is effective due to the high seed-oil content that is why I visited the website and copied the ingredients. I was certain by the way this product behaves that it was developed using seed-oil.
The benefit of seed-oil is that the moisturisation (and flavour for that matter) there is intense and more and more manufactures are utilising this part of the plant now.
The Roll-on does not offer the instant softness and gratification of products that contain as shea-butter or honey, but it does seem to effectively condition and improve the lips with on going use.
Usual price is 4.00, this stuff really last well. Moreover, there is a good list of natural ingredients here and equally some ranges would charge considerably more for a similar product. Often featured in the offers that Body Shop run it may be possible to buy for less.
Available from the Body Shop in-store and on-line.
Whilst I am happy to recommend this product there are other lip treatments that I prefer ad would probably buy first. However, it works, looks nice and is long lasting both on the lips and in the time the container lasts. I have been using this for some months now and you can barely detect that the product has gone down.

I bought this product while on holiday in Toronto, I was surprised to see a Body Shop establishment in Canada in the trendy beach area of the city and went in originally to buy a gift for our hosts and in addition I picked up this lip roll on for myself along with a couple of other items. I'm not sure exactly what the cost is in term of English pounds as it was in dollars but the conversion rate would put it at just under £5 however in Canad there is quite a bit of tax added to the price at the till.
I bought the mint variety however it also came in orange and coconut flavour as well in the shop. The tube contains 10ml of balm which is in a green coloured tube (the colour varies depending on the flavour) and the lid is a screw top with the roller ball underneath the lid.
It is certainly very easy to apply, as the roller ball is smooth and applies the balm nice and evenly however the ease of application is probably the only positive that i could find with this product. I did not like the mint flavour to it as it was a little too harsh for my liking and made my lips tingle but not in a nice way.
I did not really find the balm to be very moisturising on my lips and while they felt nice and moist at first the balm tended to dry them out after only a short amount of time. Initially my lips also felt a bit sticky and not very comfortable.
I was not at all impressed with the results and after a couple of days use I gave up on it and it never made the flight home. This is certainly not a product that I will be buying again as there are much better lip balms on the market.
Some weeks ago I was informed, via one of the 'voucher' type sites that there was a good deal on at Body Shop where I could buy a set of items at a really good price so I indulged - as you do!
One of the items was the 100% Natural Lip Roll On in the orange flavour. I had never even seen this one before let alone tried it so I was looking forward to using it and then letting you all know what I thought of it.
This lip roll on is currently on sale at £4 for 10ml and is available in orange, rose, mint, berry and coconut flavours. Obviously if you have a Love Your Body Card you will get 10% off all your purchases at the Body Shop which would make the lip roll on £3.60.
The packaging is plastic and about the same size as a lipstick. The label has the Body Shop logo (which is repeated on the top of the lid) and the name of the product in English and French. The label on the one that I have is white with orange writing and a picture of an orange section on it. The other flavours have labels in relevant colours - the mint is green, the berry is purple, the rose is pink and the coconut is brown.
The lip roll on has a screw top and, when you unscrew and remove it you see a sliver coloured ball bearing sort of thing sitting at the top of the roll on. The idea is that you have to run this over your lips in order to apply the lip balm.
On the Body Shop web site it advises us that this lip balm is made from 100% natural ingredients - which is what we have come to expect from the Body Shop. This product will apparently leave your lips feeling soft and totally kissable! It is supposed to be moisturising and will leave the lips feeling soft and smooth.
To be fair I am not a great fan of roll on lip balms so I was already at a bit of a disadvantage but I decided that I would try this with an open mind.
I unscrewed the lid and noticed that there was no discernible citrus fragrance. I rolled the balm onto my lips and of course just had to lick my lips and the balm did taste very zesty with a nice orange flavour.
After application the balm felt wet on my lips and a little bit sticky but not too much. The real problem for me was the fact that it didn't seem to do very much! When first applied my lips felt moisturised but the effect soon wore off and I didn't notice any further softening or smoothing of my lips as promised.
Overall I am happy to use this lip balm now that I have it but I certainly will not be buying this again.
At least once it is finished I can put the container in the recycling bag as the plastics and metals go in together!
I am a big fan of lip gloss, lip butters, anything that you can put on your lips and make them feel soft or look shiny.
This product does all of that, its made of 100% natural ingredients, and is from the Body Shop. It costs £4 but they have an offer on at the moment where you can get 2 of them for £3.50.
I have the berry flavour, but theres also orange, coconut and mint. It is quite a thick liquid and the bottle has a silver ball in it which rolls the liquid equally. The ball also feels quite nice when applying and cools down your lip.
It literally tastes and smells like fruit, it comes in a clear small bottle of 10ml, it has a white label with the body shop logo. It has a screw top lid.
It moisturises your lips, and unlike other lip balms it doesnt have that waxy plastic feel. It also leaves a gloss like sheen saving you having to apply extra gloss.
I have had this small bottle for months and it is still going strong, it hasnt lost any of its scent and theres still over half a bottle left. It does need reapplying frequently though.
Walking past the Body shop on my way to work this morning, I promised myself that I would review two of their lip balms that I reguarly use. I'm not sure if the other one is in the catalogue yet but it is the Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer, also from the Body Shop. They are two very similar products and I love both, but hope to tell you the differences and the advantages of each.
The Body Shop Roll On Liquid Balm comes in 5 flavours (Berry, Coconut, Rose, Mint and Orange - <I am reviewing the orange>) and costs £4 for 10ml. I have read that 50p of this sale is donated to help those not as fortunate as ourselves in other countries which is in keeping with the Body Shops ongoing mission to tackle poverty and to promote fair trade across the globe. A great ethic to support!
The little tube is transparent but has a white stciky label all the way around that details what you'd expect (product info, size etc) but also depicts a juicy looking orange which is really very appealing and leads you to believe that the balm will be juicy and moisturising.
The roll on lip balm is made from 100% natural ingredients, again as you'd expect from the Body Shop and has a delicious orangey smell to the balm. You apply the balm using a small metal roller which I think is brilliant as the white ones often discolour which is very off-putting when you are putting on your lips.
It rolls on easy, smells lush and feels really really nice and soft however, I find that it tends to sit pretty on top of my lips rather than absorbing in and fells ever so slightly stciky. I also find that I am having to reapply again and again throughout the day.
I still recommend this balm though as it leaves a lovely shimmer on your lips and I sometimes use over lipstick for a bit of extra shine. If you want something that feels more like a balm but has all the qualities of this balm, I'd recommend that you try the Body Shops Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer.

Yesterday I reviewed one of my least favourite lip balms (Soap & Glory), so today I decided to write about the Body Shop lip roll-on. Because I often suffer from very dry lips, I have to use lip balms on a regular basis and so I am forever buying and trying different ones on.
The Body Shop lip roll-on is made from 100% natural ingredients and contains Community Fair Trade soya oil and organic olive oil. There are five different scents you can choose from, coconut, rose, berry, mint or orange (I am reviewing the rose one). Each clear plastic tube contains 10 ml and costs £4, and for each purchase, 50p goes towards helping the most marginalised and vulnerable children around the world, those literally on the edge. The tube has a white sticker which goes all the way around it and on the front there is a picture of a rose, the Body Shop logo, underneath which it states 100% Natural Lip Roll-On and that it contains 10 ml (all in pink writing). On the back you have the barcode and where it was manufactured. If you peel the sticker off you have more information underneath including a full list of ingredients. If you removed all the labels, you would also be able to see how much is left in the tube, so would have an idea on when you are likely to need a replacement.
The tube has a screw on/off top and the lip balm is dispensed via a metal roll-on ball. The first thing I did when I purchased this, was of course have a sniff of the balm. This particular one smells like the original Rose Turkish Delight, a very sweet and floral fragrance of course. The balm is liquid and so is easily dispensed and applied, you only really need to roll the ball over your lips a couple of times. It glides over your lips without pulling at them, and I think that the metal roll-on ball is great as it's coolness soothes sore lips.
I find this balm to be nice and light on my lips, without being greasy and sticky. It is easily absorbed, so it does not remain sat on on my lips for ages. As I really do not like feeling my lips covered in anything (I don't wear lipstick or lip gloss), this lip balm is perfect for me. Once absorbed, my lips feel well moisturised and silky soft. I have found that because it does not taste sweet or has a particular nice flavour, I do not tend to lick it off, but again because it is absorbed so quickly I don't feel the need to do that anyway.
All in all, this is a great lip balm, that is not greasy or sticky but moisturises my lips really well, so I have awarded it top marks and would recommend it to you all.
Recently I've decided to take better care of my lips as I do tend to neglect them in comparison to the rest of my body. I need vegetarian suitable lip products so my first port of call was naturally my local Lush store. Once I'd purchased a few items from there got myself into a little lip care routine I decided to try The Body Shop too as I know there products to be vegetarian friendly also. I bought one of these natural lip roll ons as they sounded lovely!
The lip roll on is available in a five different scents; berry, coconut, mint, orange and rose. I opted for the coconut roll on as I love the coconut scent and thought this one would be most appealing to me. The lip roll ons are sold in The Body Shop stores or on their website for £4 for 10ml of product. I managed to order this at a time where there was a 40% off all orders offer on The Body Shop website so got mine for £2.40 which I didn't begrudge paying although I think I would of thought twice about it before splashing out £4.
My coconut roll on comes in a clear plastic tube with clear plastic screw on lid. The sticker around the body of the tube is white and contains a picture of a coconut as well as The Body Shop's logo, product name and scent. The writing on my roll on is brown although this varies to match the scent. For example, the writing on the mint scent is green and the writing on the rose scent is pink.
The roll on is made from 100% natural ingredients, isn't tested on animals, uses fair trade soya oil and organic olive oil and 50p from every sale of this goes to the most marginalised and vulnerable children around the world so there's an awful lot of people who benefit from this roll on!
When I first opened my roll on naturally the first thing I did was sniff it. I must admit I was left disappointed by this. I couldn't detect any hint of coconut in this scent whatsoever! In fact, it barely has any scent to it. If anything the slight scent this does have reminds me of shea butter which I found to be a little off putting as I really don't like this scent! Fortunately it's not strong enough to completely put me off. I do think though that is a flaw with the coconut scented roll on as opposed to all the roll ons as my Sister had one of these in 'berry' and it had a very strong fruity scent to it and was nowhere near as disappointing as this one was!
It didn't leave much of an after taste on my lips either. The one it did leave was still quite fruity and didn't resemble coconut very much at all! Again though, my Sister's berry scented roll on was the complete opposite and completely lived up to its claims. I just must have picked the wrong scent by the looks of things.
Using the roll on is easily done. Just unscrew the lip and roll onto your lips using the little ball contained at the top of the tube. I do find it goes on quite thick and you definitely only need to roll this over your lips once otherwise it just feels like too much. Or it does for me anyway. It also feels quite oily but I don't mind this too much. It doesn't feel waxy or sticky either which is a huge plus side. My lips look very shiny after application and feel really smooth, moisturised and hydrated which is the main thing I was after. The problem is that I find my lips then dry up really quickly after I've applied this, much drier than they were before so I have to reapplying it over and over again to maintain this hydrated feel. They feel smooth for hours after application, just really dry!
Overall I'm not a fan of this. It's a shame as this sounded so promising. My coconut scent didn't resemble coconut in the least bit and the moisturised and hydrated effects of this are very short lived and actually, about twenty minutes after application, my lips feel worse they did in the first place! Definitely not a product for me.
Body Shop Natural lip roll on
Little Miss is very keen on the Body Shop products at the moment and has several of these kind of lip glosses. I like the Body Shop because they tend to use Fair Trade ingredients and when I had a look at the ingredients in the lip roll on I was pleased to see that the soya oil comes from organic, non-GM soya beans, grown using traditional farming methods free of harmful pesticides and fertilisers; this then provides a regular income for the farmers in Brazil. Having read this I read a bit about the Body Shop Values and Campaigns and decide I like the whole ethos.
As with most products this product comes complete with a number of promises including:
*Made with 100% natural ingredients
*Non-tacky, non-waxy feel
*50P of each purchase goes to help vulnerable children
All of the promises I like so it seems its right for me.
**Price and Availability...**
The lip gloss costs £4 for 10ml, and because it lasts for ages, it's good value. I have started to buy a lot of the products online and the speedy £2.99 delivery also represents good value especially if you are buying a few of the products. Body Shop also have a loyalty card which I also have and which offers a discount on the products. It is available instore at Body Shop and online at www.bodyshop.co.uk
**Product and Packaging...**
The lip roll on is available in several flavours: Berry, Coconut, Mint, Orange, Rose. The one I am using is the Rose flavour. The product is almost like a mascara wand but slightly thinner with a picture of a rose on the front and some information about the product on the tube/bottle (not sure what to call it). It has a screw on/off lid and when I open it up I am surprised to see a metal looking round ball which moves when touched, presumably to get the lip gloss onto the lips. It looks unlike any other lip product I have used and immediately I don't like the look of it; why do I want to rub something metal over my lips?
When I do start using it, it is, as expected, a weird feeling. The product is dispensed onto the ball and then onto my lips in just the right amount, so not too much and not too little. This is good because sometimes I find that wands are too overloaded with the lip product and the squeezy tubes are the same. The lip gloss itself is not sticky and does feel quite moisturising and has a slight gloss to it. However, the taste is nothing like I expected. I don't in fact know what I was expecting; I was hoping it wouldn't taste like rose but this was a real no taste, just a rather sticky slightly moisturising lip product.
**How to use the product...**
The product should be applied directly over the lips. This is easy to do because the roll of the ball is very smooth, and the product is dispensed nice and smoothly.
The product is easy to apply and leaves a bit of shine on my lips and is not sticky. It lasts for ages because only the correct amount is dispensed when the ball goes rolling. One disadvantage is the fact that I can't see how much of the product is left, although I have had this a couple of months now and it must be coming to the end but still dispenses smoothly. it lasts until my next drink of bite to eat and certainly with normal talking and lip rubbing it doesnt last more than an hour or so.
The actual style of the lip roller is not my first choice and I really am not keen on the taste so although its not a bad quality product I can't rate it more than average as I wont be buying it again although it might appeal to some.

The Bodyshop is always the sort of shop I've admired from afar, knowing that although I'll like the products inside, I'll find them too expensive for my budget and shy away from.
Over the past 6 months however I have realised that Bodyshop have some great deals online which usually include codes for hefty discounts of 30% or more.
One particular Friday the Bodyshop emailed a code out for 40% off and free delivery, and for that offer I just HAD to order something, no matter how small. I suffer with incredibly dry skin and lips and plumped for the BodyShop Natural Lip Roll On in the mint variety.
With the free delivery and discount it cost me around £2.80 delivered to try this lip roll on.
The lip roll on itself comes in a 10ml tube. The mint variety has green packaging, and the product is dispensed by a metal rollerball as you smooth it over your lips.
The consistency of the product is one of a thin oil. You can choose how much you want on your lips by the amount of times you roll the item over your lips. The oil doesn't instantly sink in, it sits on your lips but luckily it doesn't feel sticky and gloopy as some lipbalms can do.
The lipbalm isn't coloured and therefore just adds a natural shine to the lip area, letting your natural colour shine through. I haven't done this myself, but I imagine this product could be used successfully over a coloured lipstick.
The mint smell of the product comes across quite strongly, and there is a mint taste when it is first applied. This seems to wear off pretty quickly however, and you are left with a product which simply feels moisturising.
I don't think its highly effective in the moisturising stakes as my lips are still very dry, but maybe thats because I just don't apply it myself.
At £4, I wouldn't buy this product again as its not a product I feel like I must have. With a discount, I would possibly consider it but maybe in another flavour. I do like the fact that it is 100% natural and I do not have to worry about what I'm putting on my lips, but perhaps feel like trusty vaseline has more of an effective for a smaller price tag.
I was a little disappointed with this liquid lip balm roll on to be honest. The formula is much too runny and watery. It's easy to roll on to your lips, apart from the ball feeling extremely cold when it's first applied on to the lips. My lips felt a little greasy when I first used this but after a week or so they got used to the consistency. The lip balm stick itself is easy to hold in the hand and it's small and compact enough to take out and about with you. The balm is runny but it doesn't leak from the stick itself.
I wouldn't say that this is the most moisturising lip balm that I have ever tried, and I have tried a few. It's just too runny that sometimes I end up accidently swallowing some of it and it doesn't taste as nice as it smells, believe me! You can buy the lip balm in various different flavours. I opted for the Coconut one as it smelt quite sweet and delicate in the shop. To be honest it doesn't really smell of Coconut, it's more of a sweet Vanilla scent. It's still pleasant though (unless mine has faded!).
Much too runny for my liking. It absorbs far too quickly so you have to keep topping it up throughout the day. After five minutes I can no longer feel the balm on my lips. The Body Shop really need to re think the formula to this one.
I wouldn't buy it again.
Today I am going to be reviewing the Body Shop Lip roll on in Berry.
I recieved this from a friend who loves the body shop and she said it was an amazing product and that I really needed to try it so as she loved it so much I thought I should try it out and write a review for you all.
This is packaged in a clear bottle with a roll on, metal ball apllicator. I like this applicator because it is easier and less messy than other lip balms where you have to use your finger then you have some left etc. I also haven't found the rollerball to get stuck or anything which I do fnd with some deodarents and mini rollerball perfumes.
This product is easy to apply and glides onto your lips nicely. It tastes / smells really nice and very berryish !! It moisturises my lips really nicely, adds a little shine and it isn't waxy or greasy. It does feel kind of oily, which isn't surprising as most of the ingrediants are oil (Soya Oil ,Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil) but I don't find this a problem as it is not a heavy oil, it is a light moisturising oil. I really want to try some other tastes to see if they are as gorgeous !! It's made from all natural ingredients which is an added bonus too !!
They last a really long time and are quite cheap too (£4) so it's not like the cost a bomb. You can easily pop the tube into your bag if your in a hurry as its quite small. Overall this is a really good lip balm and i'd highly recommend it.
I was in the body shop, and had a voucher for 50% a £20 spend and needed to spend £2 to qualify i realised when i got to the till. Already had loads of lip balms but not a lip roll on and for the price (introductory offer of 1.50) i bought one for me (berry) and one for my mum (coconut).
**What is it?**
This product is a roll on lip balm, which in my opinion is great you just roll it on and go, better than having to put some on your finger and rub it on, which can be messy!!
Comes in variety of flavours, berry, coconut, rose, mint and Orange. Made from all natural ingredients mainly oils. So thats a big plus.
Comes in a small tube of 10ml, with a silver ball on the top for easy, even distrubution onto your lips with no wastage. A screw top lid and just a plain white/clear tube with a label stating the flavor.
**whats it like**
First of all the smell is pleasant exactly what you expect from a body shop product, nice and fruity. Was disappointed when applying the berry lip roll on, the taste and smell was bland. There is no colour to this lip roll on, it's a translucent oil. The feel of the lip roll on was smooth and silky on my lips not waxy or greasy, just right. Just don't apply too much or it may run off your lips but you don't need much any way. Lasts me a good half hour to a hour before i need to top it up (in my opinion thats good, as most lip balms only last me 20 or so minutes before needing to reapply)
The tube is small, so easy enough to pop into your bag.
All in all i feel this is a great product for the price, even at £4 (which it is now) I'd still buy one as it is long lasting (bought mine 2 months ago and not run out) Not as cheap as other lip balms, but this is all natural oils, and other cheap lip balms have a chemically smell and taste, and greasy feel unlike the body shops.
I love The Body Shop products, and as soon as I saw there new 'Lip Roll Ons' on there website I just had to have one! Each lip roll on is £3 and contains 10ml of product. I actually got mine for £1.50 due to a limited time offer (50% off), but after trying this I am going to be buying atleast 3 or 4 more as I love it! Apparently The Body Shop will be upping the price to £4 once the product is better established so i'd reccomend getting one or two while it's on introductory offer.
Flavours available are: Rose, Berry, Orange, Coconut and Mint. I have the lip roll on in orange. It smells just like Capri Sun/a sweet, perfumed orangey smell, and it's overall a very sweet, summery, feminine and pleasent smell. It is very sweet tasting, and does taste like orange and it isn't a fake or unpleasent taste. The taste unfortunetly lasts for around 5 minutes maximum which is a bit of a let down however the smell lingers for 20 minutes or so after application.
This is a really fun product to use. The packaging is basically a small tube which is quite thick so it is easy to grip and guide accurately. It has a plastic lid on to keep the product fresh, and when you take the lid off a metal roller ball dispenser is exposed at the tip. It is quite odd looking for a lip product but it's a unique idea and it works wonders - it lets just the right amount of product out so it never lets any of the liquid go to waste and the rolling motion applys the liquid smoothly and evenly as well as massaging your lips. The ball does need a bit of force sometimes to get it moving again as it can get stuck and dry.
The liquid that is dispensed via the ball is a light oil (a majority of the product is made up of oil - Soya Oil ,Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil) it has the texture/feel of lightweight oil. It is extremely moisturising but not overly so and is also not sticky. It doesn't feel greasy but it does feel a little oily if that makes sense but not to the point where it feels disgusting.
This product is made from a hundred percent natural ingredients so I doubt it will negatively effect anyone with delicate lips as there are no chemicals and the smell is not heavily perfumed. It is really light when on the lips and is really subtle. It leaves my lips feeling soft, smooth and fresh. It doesn't dry my lips out at all like some lip balms can. The lip roll on gives a gorgeously bright, clear sheen to the lips and honestly looks completely natural. The product is not coloured or tinted - it has no pigmentation at all once on my lips although in the bottle it looks like an orange liquid.
Despite the oil it contains, even after 10 or so layers of this it absorbs well and doesn't look greasy. The smell and taste although temporarily are a nice bonus and the product itself is moisturising. The design of the packaging (the roller ball) is also fun to use and i'd reccomend this lip roll on.
