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!
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Cute jar
- Fresh guava fragrance
- Good moisturizer
- Only little product required
- Ideal as a night lip balm
The ‘Nay’ factors:
- Not suitable as lipstick base
- No SPF
- No preservatives mentioned
- Pricey for a lipbalm
- No shelflife / mfg date mentioned
