Born Lippy lip balms from The Body Shop - Pomegranate and Plum!

Recently The Body Shop sent some products for me to play with and kind of like the child who prefers the cardboard box over the actual present, I immediately fell in The Love with the teeniest and most unassuming product in the stash.  The Born Lippy Plum lip balm spoke to me and said "Oh hi, I smell gorgeous and I'll make your lips look lovely and juicy."  Those are the words it said to me and I believed it.


It smells so sweet and fruity and brings me back to my childhood to the days of the Push Pops.  One swipe across the lips doesn't give much colour but who does just one swipe when applying lip balm?  No, we all go back and forth over our lips and when we feel like we've enough balm on, we smush our lips together, satisfied that we look good and have moisturised lips.  The plum colour is much better in real life and every time I wear it at work, the girls ask "Ooh what's on your lips?"


While out at dinner with CherrySue a few weeks ago, post noms, we took out our respective lip products to do some post dinner lip slathering.  She caught sight of mine and I saw it in her eyes.  She fell in The Love too.  She told me she'd been sent the Pomegranate and loved it too.  We then vowed to buy each other's coloured lip balm next time we were in The Body Shop and I believe we've both kept up our ends of the bargain.  Have a look at Pomegranate in action.


These two beauties sell at €4.95 each or two for €8.  They're rarely out of my sight or handbag and make for perfect, natural, summery lips.  They moisturise nicely, as well they should, they're lip balms, leaving a glossy finish to the lips.  As it fades, it leaves a lovely stain on my lips, like I've just eaten berries.  But we all know that if I'd have eaten berries, they'd be all over my top as I'm so messy, not on my lips.

What do you think?  Were you Born Lippy?
