Lip balms are a must-have for all of us. I did find my HG lip balm in “Blistex,” but that did not stop me from experimenting with new lip balms ;). One of my recent purchases in lip balms is The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter. I bought it because at one point I had full trust on TBS and I thought everything from them would be great and lip butter sounded even better and nourishing than a lip balm. Let me tell you about my experience with this in detail below:
This buttery balm melts onto the lips for instant hydration. It contains zesty pink grapefruit seed oil.
- Buttery texture.
- Leaves lips feeling soft and smooth.
Our Community Fair Trade shea butter comes from Ghana. Local women hand-harvest shea nuts, dry them in the sun and crack them to extract the kernels. These are roasted and ground into a paste to make the butter. Our trade with the Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association has helped to fund three medical centres and 10 nursery schools.

This comes in a cute and small pink tub and my greatest gripe is that I have to dig in my fingers to apply this. Obviously, I should have thought about it when I bought it, but the SA made me believe that this was the best thing in the world for my lips and I bought it because I am worth it :P.
Price and Quantity:
It was around 285 INR for 8.5 gm.
As the name suggests, it is like butter and glides easily on lips and moisturizes them enough if your lips are not very dry. I do not like it when my lips are very dry; Blistex is my go-to balm in those times. These are supposed to be colorless, but they do leave a white cast on lips and I do not like wearing it on its own, it is better to be used before exfoliating.
It stays on me for about 2-3 hours which is decent enough for me.
Let me write down the pros and cons for you:
Pros of The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter:
- It moisturizes the lips enough if the lips are not very dry.
- TBS does not test on animals.
- Natural ingredients (that’s what they claim).
Cons of The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter:
- The smell is too strong.
- Leaves a white cast on lips, hence it cannot be used alone while going out.
- Comes in a tub.
- Not a great option for very dry lips.
- Costly for the quantity.
I had another version of these lip butters and that was way better than this one. This one does not qualify as a must buy in my opinion as this has a strong fragrance and it is not great when my lip are very dry.
