The Body Shop Lip Butter

The Body Shop Lip Butter is a lip balm that comes in small tubs and assorted scents.

I recently picked up the Shea Butter and Coconut ones because I was always curious about how they were. They have a very soft, buttery, slippery feel to them and smell delicious!

Some info about their shea butter:

Our Community Fair Trade shea butter comes from Ghana. Local women hand-harvest shea nuts, dry them in the sun and crack them to extract the kernels. These are roasted and ground into a paste to make the butter. Our trade with the Tungteiya Women’s Shea Butter Association has helped to fund three medical centres and 10 nursery schools.

And their beeswax:

The organic beeswax in our Shea Lip Butter is supplied by our Community Trade partner, North Western Bee Products. Produced in the remote tropical rainforests of northwestern Zambia, the traditional beekeeping methods ensure the preservation of the forest and the beekeepers’ way of life. The 6,000 beekeepers receive a fair price for their beeswax and honey, which can be used for necessities such as salt, soap, clothing, medicine and education. It is also providing more women with the opportunity to become beekeepers.

I like these lip butters but they aren’t my favorite lip product. Jack Black still holds that title for me. These feel nice on, but they are rather thin and disappear rather quickly. While they are on they feel nice and smell great but because they seem to sit on top of my lips rather than penetrate the skin, they don’t seem super effective for intense moisture.

The tubs aren’t my favorite way of applying lip balm either because they aren’t sanitary. Nothing like smearing germs all over your lips with your finger! 😉

Overall: Having said all that I do still like them and have been using them a lot. For days when I need much more moisture I will go back to my Jack Black, but I like that these are cute and smell so tasty!
