Fluffy Little Pick Of The Week: The Body Shop Born Lippy Pomegranate Lip Balm


Today’s pick really brings back memories - in my secondary school, you were nobody until you had a collection of fruity lip balms from The Body Shop. Now, with their recent makeover and these new stick varieties, I’m falling for them all over again.

Well, there’s a lot to love: cute, kitsch packaging, subtle colour and shine and a delicious fruity taste, for starters. There are six sticks in strawberry, plum, pink berry, lychee, plum and pomegranate, which is the one I was given. For the traditionalists, six pots are also available in strawberry, raspberry, passionberry, watermelon, pink guava and satsuma.  


The pomegranate version tastes absolutely delicious - especially, as I discovered, layered under ELF's Studio Matte Lip Colour (that I talked about here). Seriously, it's a lip smackingly good combo that has to be tried to be believed! 

The Born Lippy stick balms are €4.95 and out now. What Body Shop product takes you on a trip down memory lane? Tell me in the comments!

I used to love the passion berry flavour in these lip balms. Anything that smells or tastes similar instantly reminds me of the first date i had with my boyfriend in my teens! x
