Lip Candy

Spicy Orange Body Candy is a good product with a bad name. If it had been called something like Lip Candy or Body Balm, I think the name would represent the product much better, and it probably would have gotten higher ratings from the other reviewers. Luckily, I had a good idea of what to expect when I requested the Body Candy, and it met my expectations and worked well for my intended use. As a body topping this would be a complete fail, but as a lip or body balm it's better than average.

Use

According to the packaging, Good Clean Love's Body Candy is supposed to add flavour to a kiss, or be used as a topping for your lover's most kissable spots.

Due to the texture, this really doesn't work well as a body topping. However, it does make an excellent moisturizing balm. I have used it mainly on my lips, but it could also be used on other very dry areas of the body, like the cuticles, elbows, or heels.

It could be used as a total body moisturizer or a massage product if you don't mind a slightly heavier feel, but the small package makes that a bit impractical.

The label warns against internal use, so don't try to use this as a lube.

Body Candy is 100% natural, organic, and vegan. It isn't tested on animals, and doesn't contain parabens, glycerin, or petro-chemicals. See the Personal Comments section for a full ist of ingredients.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Body Candy has balm-like texture. It's hard in the packaging, even in hot weather. You can't scoop a dollop out with your finger, but sliding a fingertip across the surface will leave you with a usable amount.



It's cream coloured in the jar, but applies totally clear. It spreads to a thin layer that partially absorbs but still leaves a bit of a protective coating. It isn't waxy or greasy, and makes the skin feel soft, smooth, and moisturized.

It will leave a slight coating on the tongue if you lick an area of skin that has a fairly large amount applied.

Taste / Aroma

I have Body Candy in the Spicy Orange scent. The product page refers to the options as flavours, and while the product is safe to eat and does have a flavour to it, I consider it to be more of a scented product that happens to have a taste. It doesn't taste unpleasant at all, but due to the texture it's not something you're going to want to lick at.

The scent is fairly strong. You'll definitely notice it if you're wearing it, or kissing someone who's wearing it, but you definitely won't smell it from the other side of the room.

The scent is exotic and spicy, not sweet. The orange smell is very subtle, while the spices are stronger. It's not a feminine smell, and could work well for anyone, regardless of gender. It reminds me of winter and the pomanders I used to make at Christmas by sticking cloves into an orange.



It also comes in Cocoa Mint or Vanilla Chai, which I'd love to try in the future.

Performance

The first thing I did when I got the Body Candy was rub some onto the back of my hand, then lick it. Right away, I knew this wasn't something I'd want to use as a body topping. Luckily, I got it to use mainly as a lipbalm, and it performs very well that way.

Both my boyfriend and I have very dry lips that tend to get flaky. It is especially noticeable if we're making out for a long time. We both carry around lip balm wherever we go, and usually put it on before kissing each other. I found that the Body Candy moisturized my lips very well. It lasted for a long time and kept my lips soft, smooth and protected, without feeling like there was heavy, waxy coating on them. It made them slightly shiny, but not glossy. It fully absorbed eventually, and didn't leave any residue behind. When kissing, I could slightly taste it, but I didn't get any of the feeling on my tongue like I did when licking it right off of skin.

My boyfriend tried this as a lip balm too. He's not one to volunteer his opinions for reviews, but when I asked if he liked the scent and the texture he answered "yes" to both. He also prefers me to wear this rather than lipgloss if I'm going to be kissing him, so that he doesn't end up with any colour, sparkle, or "girly" scents on his lips afterwards.

I got him to try it on his cuticles as well. He has very dry cuticles, and constant hang nails, but he doesn't like to put hand cream on because he doesn't like the feel of it. The Body Candy seems to be more moisturizing than a cream or lotion, and the texture makes it easy to apply a dab to a small area and rub it in, rather than getting lotion all over his fingers and hands.

I don't have dry skin, except for on my lips, and on my elbows in the winter. I plan to try this out on my elbows when the cold weather comes.

Packaging

Body Candy comes in a 2 oz. metal tin. It's slightly smaller than the palm of my hand, so it's a bit large to carry in a pocket, but will easily fit in most purses. Since the Body Candy is solid, there shouldn't be any problems with leaking if you travel with it. I received my package on a hot day (about 30 °C/ 86 °F) and the Body Candy wasn't melted when I opened it. The lid is easy to open when you want to, but isn't loose enough to come off unintentionally.



The label is orange with white writing, and has a square that looks like a section from the periodic table. It says 2 oz. where the atomic number would be, and So (for Spicy Orange) where the chemical symbol would be. It has Good Clean Love's logo, and their slogan - Chemistry without chemicals.

The front of the tin is pretty discreet. There is nothing obviously sexual, although it does say Body Candy. The back label mentions kissing, and using it on your lover's body, but it shouldn't be a problem unless you know some really nosy people. I've used mine at school, and left it lying around the house, and it's never gotten a second glance.

Personal comments

I don't know exactly how much EdenFantasys will be charging for Body Candy, but it is available on the Good Clean Love website for $12. I go through a lot of lip balm, and I think that is a good price for the amount that you get, and how long an application lasts.

Follow-up commentary
Now that winter is here, my lips are even drier, and the scent is perfect for the season. I've been using this on a pretty regular basis since I got it, and I still have about half of the tin left. I've been carrying it around in my school bag. No one has ever noticed that it is a sexual product in any way.
