Who is it for? The Body Shop Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm Raspberry is for those looking for fruity lip balms for dry lips.

Price:   Rs 275 for 10 gm.
How to Use:

Apply daily morning and evening on exfoliated lips. Reapply as and when needed. Don’t apply too much, or the lips will start feeling sticky.

My Experience with  The Body Shop Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm Raspberry:

Packaging:

This lip balm comes in a really cute little pot. Although the packaging is very travel-friendly, I don’t like that it is a pot. Every time I need to apply the lip balm, I have to go wash my hands first. I do this so that no bacteria develop in the container. A tube packaging would have been much more preferable.

Texture:

The texture of the lip balm is like Vaseline, just a bit lighter. Be careful when you apply this. If you apply too much of the product, your lips will become sticky. I hate that! Even though the lip balm has a strong fruity smell in the pot; it smells light and fresh on the lips. It tastes good too 🙂

Effectiveness:

As soon as I apply it, my lips feel moisturized. Over a period of time, I have seen the pigmentation fade away. So it’s a very good product if you are looking at removing pigmentation. I personally feel that any other product might have done the same thing— as Vaseline had caused my pigmentation, so not using it also helped. The lip balm has a visible pink tint and is great for a casual yet fresh look, without applying lipstick. I use it as a lipstick base and it works well that ways. Due to its sticky nature, it helps the lipstick stay longer.

If on the other hand, you are looking for something to TREAT dry lips, this is not the product for you. As long as you apply the lip balm, lips become soft. But the effect wears off with the lip balm. You need to reapply this frequently.

Positives
  1. Moisturizes your lips immediately
  2. Lightens and makes it pink
  3. Helps with dark spots on lips
  4. Feels fresh and smells really fruity
Negatives
  • No SPF
  • It feels sticky if you apply too much of it
  • Moisturization Effect is not long stay
Would I repurchase and recommend?

No. It is an average product. You want heavy-duty repair, this will not work. If you like the scent and color, buy this for that only. You will enjoy it then. This a good daily use lip balm.

GlossyPolish Verdict

3.5/5

Used body shop lip balm myself..a friend suggested..but it didn’t meet the expectation! I have serious problem of dry, chapped lips.
Lakme lip love is proving to be a less expensive nd more effective lip assistant to me.
