The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balms Review

born_lippy

Today, I’m going to be sharing a review on the Born Lippy Lip Balm pots from The Body Shop* with you!  I’ve been using these lip balms for years, and I thought it might be good to share my thoughts on them!

The Born Lippy Lips Balm pots come in four different scents/flavours:  Raspberry, Satsuma, Strawberry, and Watermelon.  I haven’t tried the Satsuma one yet, but I’ve tried other Satsuma scented products from The Body Shop and they smelled delish!  I have tried the Raspberry, Strawberry, and Watermelon ones, though, and they’re great.

Overall, I really like these lip balms!  They really help keep my lips moisturized and they leave a nice sheen to my lips.  These lip balms smooth onto my lips nicely, are easy to apply, and they even add a bit more colour to my lips.  On the negative side, the lip balm pots are not vegan (they contain beeswax), they’re not as effective on already very dry lips, they’re slightly sticky, and I personally feel that they’re not as sanitary because the product is applied by using fingers, which could introduce bacteria into the product if fingers aren’t clean.  All this being said, though, I really like these lip balm.  I like to apply some to my lips every night before I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up.  They’ve been doing an excellent job of keeping my lips hydrated and not chapped.

The Born Lippy Lip Balm pots are available at The Body Shop, both in-store and online.  They’re about the same size as most other lip balms, at 10 ml, and are each available for $6.00.

Here are some pros and cons of the Born Lippy Lip Balm pots!

Pros:
Cruelty-free
Helps maintain lip moisture
Fun, fruity scents
Leaves a nice sheen
Adds light colour to lips
Easy to apply
Smoothes nicely onto lips

Cons:
Not Vegan (contains beeswax)
Not as effective on dry, chapped lips
Slightly sticky

I, personally, like the Born Lippy Lip Balm pots from The Body Shop.  Over the years, I have repurchased them many times.  I definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a fun lip balm that will keep lips moisturized and looking/feeling good!

*Note: The Body Shop is cruelty-free; however, its parent company is not.
