To be honest I’m not the biggest lip balm fan in the world. Well apart from Carmex, I never really bother with others. However, this was before I bought a lip butter from The Body Shop. Have I converted to a lip balm world?
I went to London for Christmas to visit my parents, while there I bought a magazine which had a Body Shop gift card for £3 free inside. Free gift card? I wasn’t leaving London without spending this. When I went into The Body Shop I remembered the curse of hand luggage.... 150ml products. Since I could not buy any body butter or body oils I decided to try a lip butter. The Mango lip butter caught my eye, it was hand luggage safe and only £1 after the gift card.
I was actually genuinely surprised how much I liked this lip butter. It’s so creamy and leaves my lips actually feeling moisturised. (I know the whole point of the product but I have had a lot of ‘lip balms’ in the past that leave my lips even drier! Grr) I love the texture it’s smooth and doesn’t make my hair stick to my lips, which is always a plus. This also smells deliciously good.
Would I buy again? I think so. Yes, I think my official I hate lip balm phase has come to an end. Well for now at least!
What do you think of The Body Shop’s lip butters? Yeah or nay?
