The Body Shop Lip Care – Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm + Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick

The Body Shop Lip Care – Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm and Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick

The Body Shop makes some absolutely heavenly scented delicious lip balms. When it comes to lip care, I personally prefer products that come in a tube/stick form obviously for hygienic reasons. But with The Body Shop, the lip balms in pot forms are absolutely drool-worthy.

Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm

What does The Body Shop say?

A glossy and moisturising lip balm with a citrus flavour and added shimmer that leaves lips looking and feeling soft, smooth and shimmering.

Priced at:ย  Rs 195 for 0.02kg.

Key Ingredients:

  • Satsuma peel essential oil – Provides natural fragrance.
  • Organic beeswax – Moisturizes and helps to condition dry skin, especially on your lips and around the fingernail beds. Acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture. Helps to keep product texture consistent when used over time. Plays a part in protecting and preserving the forest as well as providing necessary income for the beekeepers, an increasing number of which are now women.
  • Lanolin – Is one of nature’s richest moisturizers. It is readily absorbed by the skin and so provides good protection for rough, dry hands.
  • Orange oil – Is known to uplift, refresh and energize the senses. Has a sweet citrus scent.

What I think about the Body Shop Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm ?

I have a serious lip balm addiction. I am sure most of us do. ๐Ÿ™‚ Along with the Satsuma Shimmer Lip Balm, I also got Cranberry Shimmer Lip balm which is a limited edition item but I am sure itโ€™s gonna come back every Christmas to haunt me. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Balm is a very small pot, with a cute screw top lid. Texture wise, itโ€™s pretty much a semi-solid, Orange in colour and has teeny tiny glitter particles to it.
TBS Satsuma Shimmer Lip Balm

The Orange colour thankfully doesnโ€™t show up on the lips. Once applied, only the shimmer is visible which looks very pretty on those no make-up days.
TBS Satsuma Shimmer Lip Balm

The smell is DIVINE, which is one of the main reasons I got this. Smells of fresh Oranges!

It moisturizes ok. Not very well. I find this to be a bit drying compared to other TBS lip balms. Sometimes I find that I need a separate lip balm underneath this to stop my lips from drying out, which completely nullifies its purpose . ๐Ÿ™‚

What I like about Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm :

  • Smells really nice. Some days, I just carry it with me for the smell. I donโ€™t even apply it. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Affordable
  • The shimmer is nice and subtle. Once the balm fades, the shimmer is not all over the place which is something I like

What I dislike about Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippy Lip Balm:

  • Lacks moisturizing qualities. I have to frequently apply it to get the REAL dose of moisture.
  • Jar Packaging

Will I re-purchase? I may, only for the smell. ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, I am crazy like that. Buying a lip balm for a totally different purpose.

If you are willing to take the extra step of moisturizing before applying this or donโ€™t care if it even moisturizes then, I would suggest this is a nice shimmery lip balm. If not anything, get it for the smell at least. I am sure youโ€™ll love the fresh scent. Itโ€™s a nice perk me up on those dull and lazy days. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick:

What does The Body Shop say about Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick ?

Next time you’re hit with a chocolate-y craving, try smoothing on this lip luxury. With Community Trade organic beeswax, plus moisturising olive, coconut and sweet almond oils.

Key Ingredients:

  • Cocoa butter – Is an excellent moisturiser that melts at body temperature, leaving the skin feeling soft, silky smooth and supple. Helps to improve skin elasticity.
  • Organic beeswax – Is an effective moisturiser that helps to condition the skin, whilst acting as a barrier to seal in moisture.
  • Sweet almond oil – Is very rich in essential fatty acids that help to repair the moisture barrier of the skin, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness.

Priced at : Rs. 245 for 4.20g, it was Rs.345 when I got it.

What I think about Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick ?

This is nothing but cocoa butter in a stick. If you like the smell of hot chocolate, you are going to love this to bits. ๐Ÿ™‚
TBS Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

I love love the packaging. Convenient stick form, totally travel friendly. Itโ€™s a handbag staple for me. However, the cap is transparent and small, so itโ€™s easy to lose it. ๐Ÿ™

TBS Cocoa Butter Lip Balm
Itโ€™s a twist up lip balm which is retractable too . Texture wise, itโ€™s a little towards the waxy side, but not soo waxy that you want to rub it off your lips(think Vaseline ) .

The smell. Oh the smellโ€ฆ Itโ€™s a nice chocolate-y smell, which is pretty strong. Some people may find the fragrance a bit hindering, but I totally love it . I have tried the Cocoa butter body scrub from TBS, and that smells nothing like this!

Performance wise, this is the best lip balm ever. It glides on like buttah . ๐Ÿ™‚

There is no icky sticky residue. No colour. Just a super duper dose of moisturization.

I use this one as a base before applying lipstick, or as a top coat for lip stains . It wonโ€™t rub off the lip stain and you can be sure of getting a good moisture boost from drying lip stains .

I use this almost every day/night. My lips are prone to dryness be it summer or winter and this helps in keeping my dryness at bay and it works super-fast too!

What I like about this lip balm:

  • Moisturizes really well.
  • Easy, convenient and hygienic packaging.
  • Smells like chocolate. Great if you like the smell of cocoa.
  • Doesnโ€™t feel waxy as much.
  • The stick comes a long way. I use it every day and it lasted me a good 5 months. ๐Ÿ™‚

What I dislike aboutย  Cocoa Butter Lip Care Stick:

  • Not everyone would like the cocoa butter smell.
  • The cap is too small and easy to lose.

Will I re-purchase this? Yes, itโ€™s, my Holy Grail lip balm. That does not stop me from trying out other lip balms.

Tip: Every time my lip balms/concealers (in pot forms) get a bit hardened, I run a hair dryer over them for about a few seconds. The heat melts the product a bit, making it easy to apply. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would totally recommend this to those seeking a nice moisturizing lip treatment. Have you tried lip balms from TBS?

What are your favourites? Do you have a Holy Grail lip balm?

  4. Hey Appu,
    I agree with you on the Satsuma lip balm. The smell though for me is too strong since I am allegic to some smells. Its does not moisturize well but I like it because of its subtle shimmer quality. I am addicted to it and have been using it almost daily for past 2 months. Must have in my vanity (carry it along every where). Its shimmer does have the decorative quality but still makes you look illuminated (hope I am making sense). I wear it over a moisturizer,lip blam, matt lipsticks, nude lipsticks. Just love it

  5. I have the cocoa butter balm in the tub, its nice but I dont like it too much coz it gets very soft and melty in summer, Im using the Lotus herbal stick in mint now, and I like it. Its fragrance is subtle and soothes my lips nicely

    1. Ooh Renuca…sad that the cocoa butter tub doesn’t work…u cud try the tube version…it doesn’t melt or anything…But I am glad the lotus one works for u ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I use Burts Bee’s lip balm and I am loving it. It moisturizes my lips and best product to repair my lips anytime ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Why are all these lip balms in food scents? I feel like eating them instead of letting them do their job! The cocoa one sounds tempting…

    incidentially, have any of you ever come across coffee flavoured balm?
    .-= anks´s last blog ..Writing Vs Therapy =-.

  9. Fathima – I love how glossy Nivea star fruits is ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s nice during the day…however, for night am scared it’ll stain my pillowcases ๐Ÿ˜‰ you’ll love cocoa butter lippie if you like chocolate! ๐Ÿ™‚
