I love the scent - it's gorgeous! It reminds me so much of Christmas, with festive satsuma tones.
It's creamy and moisturising in texture.
The packaging is bright fun and eye-catching!
For only £2, this product is a steal!

None - I love it!
Summary
This is one of my favourite products from The Body Shop, the smell is so enticing and festive! But even in other seasons it's great! It's moisturising, a great colour, packaging - overall, amazing! The cherry on top is the great price:D

A great little lip balm in one of my favourite body shop scents.
really fruity and delicious.
It has a lovely shimmery sheen that looks really good.
The little pot is easy to pop in your bag and lasts for ages.
A pleasure to use

I love the Satsuma range from The Body Shop. The balm is much more solid inside the tub than others of the range is an orange in appearance with a light shimmer suspension. It easy to apply and melts onto your lips evenly without gathering on the corners of your lips. The taste and scent is zingy oranges albeit a little synthetic but I love it. The balm gives a beautiful gloss to the lips and the shimmer is not too apparent but a nice touch to the balm overall. It instantly moisturises and softens the lips although it is a slightly oily tacky feel. Sadly the product doesn’t last too long on the lips but it is very effective when present. This pot lasts a very long time and is excellent value for money. I really like the screw top lid on this product which is far easier to open than the pop of lid balms. Highly recommended

Terrible taste, did not last long and tacky looking on the lips
Summary
For some reason, I really did not like this particular lip balm, my lips looked rather tacky.
The scent was not bad but it tasted awful. Smelled a little like something I would clean the bathroom or kitchen with??
The shimmer wasn't nice and I would not really recommend this.
Shame as the rest are amazing and faultless!
