Born Lippy Bodyshop Lip balm

I am worried.. I think my love for Bodyshop has been reignited again recently. 

Over the years I've had an on/off love for the place. This began as a child, discovering the kids line of products they used to do...do you remember the crazy growing flannels and yummy flavoured bubble baths?  

After working as an xmas temp there a few years ago whilst still at uni I think my love was dampened slightly; I was done with the smells, some what cringingly happy sales assistants and the not so reasonable prices.

So, last week when I fancied adding a new lip balm to my collection (very large collection may i add!) I thought I'd brave it and pop in for a browse. 

I had it in my head that I'd go for a lip butter, I'd seen youtuber, Velvetgh0st mention the sweet lemon lip butter and it sounded yum. However, the price wasn't so yum £4 for a teeny tiny pot... yes I know that isn't that expensive but if you saw the amount of lip products I have that are half used you'd know why I was a little unwilling to pay £4!

Next to the lip butters were the Born Lippy Lip balms in a number of different scents. I took about 10 minutes just smelling them all! 

I decided to go for watermelon in the 10ml tub.



 You can also get them in-

Pink Guava
Raspberry
Satsuma
Strawberry
Watermelon
Passionberry

Then in the stick form you can get-

Lychee
Plum
Toffee
Pink Berry

The Bodyshop website describes it as-

Our cult lip balm in a pot. Gives colour, flavour and moisture for more kissable lips.
Moisturises and conditions lips
Soft pink tint
Shine finish
Fruity watermelon flavour

Packaging
I love the packaging of this, I like the redesigned logo.

I know some people don't like tub lip balms as you have to stick your fingers in but it doesn't bother me. The tub is small but holds a fair bit of product. When you open the lid you get a huge waft of scent which I love rather than having to dip my nose in it to get an idea of scent!

Quality
This lip balm definitely does taste like watermelon. Its not too sweet but leaves a lasting taste on your lips. Its consistency is smooth and not at all greasy or sticky which is a huge plus for me. I HATE sticky lip products!

 I've been using this for a week and it hardly looks touched so hopefully will last me a while! I have noticed a slight improvement of my lips. I have been applying this product 4 times a day.

I haven't noticed much of a tint  but it gives them a bit of sheen for sure.  
£2 for this tub too, great price!


Overall,I am very happy with this new purchase, I now want to try the Guava and the toffee stick balm. Have you tried the stick products? Are they just as yummy?
