Review + My Favourites - 003 - Lip Balm

Hey Pretty Ladies,

Weekend is here and I know how much you all are excited cause most of us just LOVE weekends now don’t we? Anyway, today I am going to be talking about one of the asset that I have which I cannot live without and I cant leave home without taking it with me. No, its not my cellphone, though that’s also by biggest asset these days, but this one is a beauty/healthcare product (as I would like to put it this way). Any guesses? Well, let me give you all a hint then…it actually smoothes and moisturises your lips and prevent them from drying out and cracking up. Yes, I am talking about a lip balm here and mine is none other than a BodyShop product.

Now this post is not only one of my My Favourites post, but I will also be reviewing this breathtaking thing. So lets get kicking!

The lip balm that I own and I am literally obsessed with is by none other than The BodyShop. It’s the Rich Plum Shimmery Lip Balm which was in their limited edition series last year. Here’s how the tub/jar looks like.

Obviously I don’t have to tell you guys what flavour it is (as its very obvious in the name: PLUM) and would go ahead by showing you what it looks like from inside.

It is a rich plum flavoured/coloured lip balm with shimmer to it which is not that prominent when applied. It comes in a 10ml cutie patootie jar and is super handy.


-          Extremely moisturising
-          Hydrates lips
-          Lasts long
-          Has an amazing smell (like all of the BodyShop products)
-          Gives a slight colour to your lips
-          Can fit into almost anything : a clutch, your wallet (fits in mine), your jacket/coat/sweater pocket etc.


-          A limited edition product.

I have been using this product since last year and honestly, i haven’t even hit half of its jar which I think is great as you just apply one coat of it through your lovely finger tip and let it do its magic. This is how it looks when applied :

Now The BodyShop has a range of lip balms at the moment by the name of Born Lippy which are extremely reasonable. This is what they have to say about it :

A glossy and moisturising lip balm, with a sweet fruity flavour, that leaves lips looking and feeling soft, smooth and kissable.

Currently the Born Lippy is available in 6 different flavours for £2 each (which is great) and they are:

-          Born Lippy Strawberry Lip Balm
-          Born Lippy Raspberry Lip Balm
-          Born Lippy Passionberry Lip Balm
-          Born Lippy Mango & Peach Lip Balm
-          Born Lippy Watermelon Lip Balm
-          Born Lippy Pink Guava Lip Balm

So, if your lips are chapping, cracking and drying up, hurry and get yourself this amazing product either online or through your nearest BodyShop outlet and am sure you’re going to love it as much as I do. The flavours smell amazing by the way…  =P

Hope you like this yummy post of mine. Feel free to comment below as I love reading them .... =D
Till then, stay pretty and have an amazing fun-filled weekend.
