The Body Shop Lip Butter

If you're a fan of potted lip balms, then you should give one of these a try. They're hydrating enough to soothe rough, dry lips and are great to use in winter. The texture is like butter, soft and smooth. They have a slightly glossy finish and need to be rubbed in well so that they don't leave a white tint to my lips (never a good look).

Being the lip balm addict that I am, I've tried the following flavours; nut, shea, papaya and coconut. I also have an unopened guarana one waiting to be used. My favorite is papaya (which is a fancy word for paw paw). It smells and tastes amazing.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Out of all of them papaya is the one that I would buy again.

Ingredients: butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), ricinus communis (castor oil), brassica campestris/aleurites fordi oil copolymer, cera alba (beeswax), carica papaya, lanolin, PEG-8 beeswax, hydrogenated castor oil, benzyl benzoate, aroma, silica, limonene, tocopheryl acetate, hexyl cinnamal, ammonium glycyrrhizate, linalool, citronellol, tocopherol, citral, methyl 2-cctynoate, geraniol, CI 77891, CI 15850, CI 19140.


  1. I haven't tried the Body Shop's Lip Butter's before...think I'm missing out on something there. Another one to add to the never ending list of...too try...thanks GlossQueen.

  2. Their Born Lippy lip balms are also great!
