The Body Shop Born lippy Lip Balm in watermelon - Review

Hello sweet ladies,

How have you been? Tiring week huh? Mine is very boring. Let me cheer you all up with this winter apt post about the born lippy lip balm from the body shop. By now, many of you would have already heard of it and some of you might also have tried it. This lip balm along with the Rainforest Moisture Shampoo has become my staple and this is my second repurchase of them.

This time, I got the born lippy lip balm in watermelon flavor. As I did not see many girls review this particular flavor, I thought I would review it. Read on to know if this is a winner a like my strawberry one.

Price: around 200-300 rupees. (I forgot :( as me and mi friend made combined purchase and my friend has the bill).

Quantity: 10 ml.

Packaging: It comes in a cute semi transparent pot with a screw cap. It is very travel friendly and super convenient. (I do not mind using my fingers to take the product as I carry my hand sanitizer).

My Experience:

I use this lip balm as my overnight treatment as I prefer tinted ones during the day. This lip balm imparts a wet look to my lips apart from this I did not notice any tint and is bit heavy. I apply it overnight and wake up to find smooth pink healthy lips. I am very impressed. It has a fruity watermelon fragrance that gives a fresh feeling. It does not sting or give any sensation to my lips. Once applied, it just sits there and gets slowly absorbed.

If you intend to use it during the day time, you might be required to re-apply it after 3 hours as the “wet look” stays only for max 3 hours. It transfers to cups and hand kerchief’s easily like almost all lip balm and has a weird sweet taste to it. :P

Let me summarize the pros and cons before moving on to my verdict.


1. Highly moisturizing.
2. Heals chapped lips.
3. smells good.
4. very apt for using at night.


1. Bit costly for a lip balm.
2. tastes weird.
3. Does not give any tint.
4. feels heavy on lips.
5. Pot packing hence reapplication is quite a concern especially when we use it for day time.

My verdict:

Irrespective of the cons being more in numbers, I still prefer this lip balm for night use as it has so far been extremely kind to my lips.

Keep smiling… J
