The lip butters are the worst "balm" I have ever used in my life, ever (and if you check out my other reviews you'll see I'm quite a lip balm fanatic). They dried out my lips to the point of peeling, plus they are an opaque white color and this fact shows on the lips.
If i found born lippy balm really good, this one is sooooo much better. Very moisturising, smells really yummy (i got passion fruit) even from a few feet away (my hubby thought i was wearing new perfume), simply love it. It's not so suitable for my sister, though. She has dry cracked lips and this product - although moisturising - leaves whitish residue on her lips. But it works fine on me - melts straight away and feels good. Simply fabulous!!
Aww I was really excited to try this but I was extremely dissapointed after application. I bought the papaya..It melted on my lips BUT the whitish cream color just didnt ABSORB into my lips! It did moisturise but it just left a white color residue on my lips - no matter how long I rubbed it in for, the color just wouldnt absorb.
It's pretty dear for a pot of lipbalm. I'm more pleased with Nivea and Blistix, which are like, less than half the price of lipbutter.
1 lippie for smelling FABULOUS.
1 more lippie for the moisurising effect.
I really like these. I have the coconut one and it smells so good! It's very moisturizing, I also think it has a tiny bit of a taste to them, Kind of sweet? Maybe that's just me. It gives the lips a little glossy shine. Would totally buy again!
Thinking that these were going to be as great as the body butters, i bought this product in Melon seed, Chocolate orange, Brazil nut, coconut and papaya. While the melon seed is the most mosturising, it catches the back of my throat and makes me feel a bit sick. The papaya smells like cat pee (Sorry girls but its horrible !) Chocolate orange, coconut and brazil nut - (My fave scent from the range) are lovely but just don't work well for me, i find them a little drying and lets face it, thats not a very helpful trait in a lip treatment!
I bought the lip butter in papaya. I really love it, it glides on smoothly, gives my lips kinda of a glossy shine. Smells sooo good, and makes my lips feel soft, moisturized, and conidtioned. I really liked this one, and i think i will defently re-purchase!
IF YOU FIND IT GOING CLUMPY AND/OR GRITTY - STIR IT!
It'll turn into the consistancy of icing :)
provide general moisturing to the lips. not enough in winter. and it become really hard and difficult to get the butter. so so. will not buy again. but it smells lovely.
I like this product, I have it in coconut. The smell is so real it creates a consistency illusion that it's actually like coconut! I find it drying like other Body Shop balms unless you use it in between other products. It's gorgeous to apply, like cream!
The Body Shop's lip butter is not as good as its tinted lip balm. The problem is in the texture--the balm has a great consistency, while the lip butter is clumpy. Despite both being called 'butter,' it has none of the silkiness of TBS's body butter. Also, the lip butter tends to turn sour if it's not used up in time, so one shouldn't unseal more than one at a time, which takes away the joy of comparing different flavors. I also find the balm more moisturizing.
