Simply Lippy Challenge Day 303 | The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm in Shade Raspberry 

Today’s lippy is one that took me on a very big trip down memory lane. I used to wear these Body Shop Born Lippy lip balms all the time when I was younger, but had almost forgotten about them until I was in picking up some body butter a few weeks back and saw this sitting on the counter. 


Of course as always, I had to buy it for my challenge and the minute I applied it, so many memories came flooding back, mainly due to the Raspberry scent which is lovely.


The formula is slightly tinted, however, I did remember it being more tinted than it was today; there really wasn’t much of a colour on my lips after applying it. 


The balm itself is thick and creamy, and a very small amount will leave them feeling lovely and soft. It isn’t the most hydrating balm I’ve tried as it did slightly sit on my lips rather than soak in, yet they did feel smooth throughout the day.


The pot is small and a handy handbag size, so it’s definitely a good option for throwing in your bag when you’re out and about on the go and need a balm fix.


It’s not the best balm I’ve ever tried but it does smell gorgeous and leaves a lovely soft shine to the lips that adds a bit of dimension to them. 

I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing this again, for the sentimental value if nothing else! I’m a huge fan of the Body Shop products in general and love that this is full of good ingredients too.
