The Body Shop's Born Lippy Lip Balm Sticks


I love The Body Shop, especially their Born Lippy lip balms. I use to always carry them around in my bag in school and I still do. When I seen they were being launched in stick form I had to have a look. I don't mind using lip balms in pots at all but when I see the packaging on these lip balms I fell in love.


Don't they look great? I love how they look like comic book strips. I think my inner nerd is slowly but surely creeping out. There are six to choose from this range of lip balms. I ended up buying four, Plum, Toffee, Lychee Shimmer and Pink Berry. I know it may be a bit excessive to buy so many but I use lip balms so much as I always have super dry lips. I've come to the conclusion that it's something do with the air conditioning in work.

L2R Plum, Toffee, Lychee Shimmer, Pink Berry

As you can see from the swatches they are all quite sheer. Pink Berry and Lychee Shimmer are almost none existent on the lips, the latter leaving a light shimmer hence the name. All the balms smell like their shade, I really don't like the smell of Toffee (bit too sweet for my liking) but all and all I love these lip balms. I find them so moisturising on my lips which is a must for me. For the price (€3.50), they are a bargain and will have a permanent place in my makeup bag.


When I bought the lip balms I was given these samples, two Chocomania Body Butter sachets, Papaya Shower Gel and Coconut Shimmer Body Lotion. Oh my god that body butter smells amazing!! I'm contemplating getting the full size tub, what do you think?? The Papaya Shower Gel and Coconut Shimmer are also lovely, both scents remind me of holidays for some reason.

Will you be treating yourself to these lip balms??

  6. Ooh that packaging is lovely! And I always need lip balm :) Not sure on the chocolate though - I've heard good things but I find I tend to hate the smell of 'chocolate' scented stuff after a short time. Might just have to go and attempt to acquire a sample and see how it goes xx

    1. Same I keep a lip balm in my bag at all times, I always have dry lips! You should try to get a sample off them. I usually hate the smell of chocolate products too. After trying the sample, I have to say this doesn't have that awful artificial scent I actually quite like it xx
