New year, new lip balm! :)
Since I'm almost done with the stick lip balm I religiously use at night, it's about time I reward myself by opening a new lip balm from my stash. Haha :D I've mentioned before that the OC me wants to finish a stick/pot of lip balm first before opening a new one so they won't accumulate. Now I have around 2-3 in circulation, which is not bad at all!
I'm madly in love with the Honeymania range of products from The Body Shop. I mean, everything from that line smells simply divine. From the bar soap (which I've kept in my drawer for x months already, and it makes my clothes smell really really good), to the shower gel and body butter, and now this cute little lip balm that looks like a tiny tub of lip butter (but it's a balm, not butter). The only thing I need now is the EDT to completely honey-fy myself! (And the EDT also smells super amazingly light, floral, sweet, and feminine.)
Okay back to the main topic, which is this lip balm!
The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Balm
This luxuriously sweet lip balm contains Community Fair Trade honey made from the nectar of wildflowers. It has a sweet, floral scent and leaves lips feeling kissably soft.
- Sweet, floral scent
- For softer-feeling lips
This pot contains 9g of honey goodness, and is good for 12 months after opening. (I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping mine for longer!)
It contains grape seed oil as main ingredient. Also, honey of course! What's so nice about having honey is beauty products is because it acts as a humectant - something that attracts and retains moisture, very ideal for the lips where it easily gets dry.
The packaging comes in a pot, but the design is different from the regular Born Lippy Lip Balms. It comes in a similar packaging to The Body Shop's Lip Butters, but for Honeymania, it's a lip balm inside. I prefer lip balm over lip butter because it's transparent when worn, the latter comes in whitish shades that can make my lips look pale.
With Honeymania Lip Balm ♥
Even if it comes in a tub, this one's currently my favorite lip balm because of its texture, scent, and flavor. It has a buttery texture that melts on your lips upon application. It's able to comfort and hydrate dry lips right after application, and it stays on for around 3 hours. The scent is a subtle yet very lovely floral one, very mild compared to the entire Honeymania range. My favorite effect of it is that it makes my lips taste so kissably sweet! It has no tint, no SPF, but that's okay since I mainly wear this indoors. My lips look and feel healthier whenever I have this on. Even my youngest sister who isn't kikay at all and doesn't like makeup likes the Honeymania Lip Balm! ♥
Available at all The Body Shop stores nationwide
