Hey IMBB sisters!
It feels so great to be back on IMBB after a long break. This time, I am reviewing a lip balm by the very popular brand The Body Shop. After trying out a dozen of different lip balms by reputed brands, I finally got my hands on Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm and I pretty much expected it to turn out like the others – just a superficial lip tint with not much benefits. But, was I wrong? Read on to find out!
Our cult lip balm in a pot. Gives colour, flavour and moisture for more kissable lips.
• Moisturises and conditions lips
• Red tint
• Shine finish
• Fruity strawberry flavour
How to Use:
Apply as required throughout the day.
AED 15 for 10 ml/ 0.29 OZ
The product comes in a little transparent 10 ml plastic pot with a screw to open lid. The product is deep strawberry in colour with a slight glaze to it. The balm is thick and creamy in consistency. It needs to be applied with your fingers. It is travel friendly and extremely light weight. Fits right into your purse. You need the tiniest amount for a perfect spread on your lips.
My Experience with The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm:
After having tried and tested numerous lip balms, I stumbled upon this product which was on sale and it was a great bargain since it is from such a reputed brand. The packaging is quite simple and easy to use. The lid is screw to open and the product is bright red in colour. It needs to be applied by our fingers, which I find a bit unhygienic, but it’s okay as long as you are the only one using it and you have clean fingers. It has a sweet, fruity smell and glides on beautifully on the skin. It has a slight red tint and a lovely glaze on application. It is definitely moisturizing on the lips and lasts good 3 – 4 hours.
I use it as a bedtime routine and it doesn’t stain anything. The Strawberry Fraise has a tasty strawberries that makes me want to keep using it again. It is not as sticky as lip glosses and not too greasy either. It also works great under matte lipsticks to give them a great glossy finish. When applied by itself, it gives a natural healthy finish to the lips.
Pros of The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm:
• Moisturizes and conditions lips
• Gives a slight red tint
• Travel friendly packaging
• Great price
• Requires very slight amount of product
• Tasty and flavorful
Cons of The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm:
• Finger application makes it a bit unhygienic
Even after critically analyzing the product for hours, I cannot seem to find a anymore flaws.
Considering I had zero expectations from this product, I am completely amazed with the quality and the performance of this lip balm. It is very moisturizing, has a great tint which is ideal for all skin types and tones. The packaging is great and so is the product. It is absolutely versatile and multipurpose. I am so glad I found my HG lip balm and I would definitely repurchase it.
