Today’s product for review is “The Body Shop Lip Care.” Are you wondering which lip care product? Okay. Good. We are no different then. When I got this, I tried to figure out which lip care it is. Of course, I knew it was “The Body Shop,” but then the product in itself is called just “lip care.”
I surfed TBS Indian website and did not see this anywhere listed, but when I opened the US website I saw that they did have TBS Lip Care product and it looked exactly like what I had got.
Now, I tell you how this confusion was created. My husband went to Chennai for a day last week. He went to Ambience Mall in Chennai and called me saying that he had spotted a TBS store there. I screamed on this end of the phone. First because I was glad he remembered what brands I normally use and second because I knew I could get a few items from TBS now. I asked him to get me 2-3 things from the store. I asked him to get me Aloe lip treatment and he asked me “why do you want a lip treatment? Your lips are perfectly fine!’ 😀 Then I decided to talk to the SA instead who was a polite girl to talk to. I told her if she had Aloe lip treatment, she said yes, and then when my hubby got back home, he had got this – TBS lip care.
Any which ways, this lip care is awesome! First, I am so glad my hubby got this for me that too when he dislikes cosmetics on me (he keeps re-iterating he prefers my plain, raw face! :D) and second because this is so convenient to apply.

My Take on The Body Shop Lip Care:
I have ditched my Lush None of your beeswax lip balm since I got this one, simply because this is so convenient to apply and this is possibly the lightest lip balm I have used so far. The best thing is that it comes in a packaging exactly similar to a lipstick. It is not a roll-on but a colorless lipstick. So, it is super convenient to apply. It is very light in texture and gives a subtle shine to the lips, but is not at all overwhelming, instead it gives a good look to the lips.
Contrary to TBS’s Born Lippy lip balms, this lip balm is not to be re-applied over and over again. In a day, I need to apply this just 2-3 times which is amazing for a lip balm for a person like me who constantly keeps biting her lips.
The product would easily last me many months, I am sure. I love it, even more than Lush lip balm.
Pros of The Body Shop Lip Care:
- Light and non greasy; not waxy or glossy at all.
- Moisturizes very well; I just apply it 2-3 times in a day.
- Very convenient to use.
- One application easily lasts for 4 hours.
- Contains SPF as well.
- Feels very light and slightly shiny on the lips.
Cons of The Body Shop Lip Care:
- Practically nothing except the price or maybe the availability.
5/5, I am loving it!
I am super glad while writing this post. Not only because of the lovely cosmetics that I got but also because I have got a new camera as well!! Yay! I wanted to upgrade my camera, but did not want a SLR, so bought RX100. It is the most popular point and shoot camera these days. Girls, have a short, virtual trip to Andamans.
Picture of a rainbow that I clicked on my last trip to Port Blair. Wishing ya all a fabulous weekend.
