I got this a while back as I think it was the December issue of Glamour had the Body Shop Joy card; where you had the chance of having £3 or more on the card. I had £3 which is great as it knocks a couple of pounds off the price and gives you an excuse to buy more than you actually would have spent. After buying a few presents for other people I decided to treat myself to this little lip balm. I have a lot of lip balms so of course I need another one to add to the collection.
I decided to go for Passionberry I’m not sure what this is exactly but it is explained on The Body Shop website as being an exotic berry flavour/scent. This lip balm smells amazing; it smells a bit like passion fruits to me. It looks really purple in the tub but this doesn’t really transfer onto the lips. It is very, very slightly tinted but I don’t think that it is really noticeable. I really don’t mind this as I bought it mainly for the fact that I love lips balms especially in the winter. It leaves lips looking super glossy and I find it to be really moisturising too which is a great thing when it is so cold outside. I find that it lasts about as long as most lip balms do and will have to be reapplied throughout the day and usually lasts around 3 hours before needing topped up.
As you can see from the picture I was a bad beauty blogger and touched it before I took my pictures! I decided not to swatch it mainly because you really can’t see much of a tint, it looks mostly clear. So if your look for a lip balm that is really pigmented then this is not for you, but if you just want to keep your lips hydrated and soft then I can not recommend these enough.
You can pick up The Body Shop’s Born Lippy lip balm instore and online for the tiny price of £2. There are also 4 other flavours/scents in the range and they also have the Born Lippy range in a stick from.
Have you tried any of the Born Lippy lip balms? If you have what did you think of them?
