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 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

Then in the stick form you can get-

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

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!

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?



  1. I'd completely forgotten these lip balms existed! I used to be a big fan of them, thank you for reminding me about them :)
