Lipbalm Mela #5 – The Body Shop Born Lippy Pink Guava Lip Balm – Review!

This is the fifth post in the Lipbalm Mela series.Well… I was working late nights the past week.. so couldn’t dedicate some time for blogging! Sorry people!

Today its gonna be a review on The Body Shop Born Lippy Pink Guava Lip Balm.

I love raw guavas with salt & red chilli powder… the same way I love products that smell of guavas too… 🙂

Price: I picked this on offer for INR 175 for 8.5 g (Original price ~ INR 200-225)

Shelflife: Not mentioned


Communis Oil, Lanolin, Polyglyceryl-3 Beeswax, Aroma, Cera Alba, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carthamus Tinctorius Oil, Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopherol, CI 77891, CI 45380, CI 15850, CI 19140.


It comes in a translucent white tub with a screw-on lid. There is no inner lid.

Though tub isn’t that hygienic, its cute & easy to carry around.

The way I see it:

The lip balm is a beautiful pink-beige shade and is waxy in texture.

The smell is of invigorating guava which I totally love. The smells stays around for 10-15 minutes after application too.

Being waxy, it stays put on the lips and takes time to sink in. Thus making it not suitable to wear under a lipstick.

It is quite moisturizing and works well on overtly dry lips too.

It is non-sticky and a little product is good enough to hydrate the lips.

The jar is so sturdy.. I am planning to use it as my day/night cream travel jar once the lipbalm gets over! 🙂

I am loving this lip balm so much… you can see how much is left in the jar already..


A nice lip balm that comes with a strong guava fragrance, capable of moisturising dry/chapped lips. Worth the money!
