The Body Shop brand is a natural brand for bath and body products. I have heard good reviews about this brand and wanted to try their products.
The first product that I used was their Hemp lip protector. I have very chapped lips and was finding it difficult to keep them nourished supple looking. Also, developed a habit of pulling out the dry skin from the lips. Yes, it did hurt doing this and sometimes would also bleed. But I just couldn’t stand having dry lips. Whenever I had dry lips, unconsciously my fingers would be around my lips finding a way to get rid of them.
The Body Shop:
The Body shop is a British cosmetics, skin care, and perfume company. It was launched in India only in 2006. The Body Shop produces natural products for various needs of women and men. They provide skincare, bath, and body, fragrance, hair care. Also provides makeup products, products for men and some accessories. I love this brand because of the quality products they produce. And also, because they are against animal testing of cosmetic products. This is a very good reason in the first place to opt for this brand. I bought Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15 and Fuji Green Tea Body Scrub.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15:
First I will talk about Lip Balm from their Vitamin E range. They claim it’s a moisturizing lip balm that soothes and protects lips from the drying effects of the sun, the wind, and cold weather.
- Hydrates and protects.
- Soothes dry lips.
- SPF 15

Packaging and Pricing:
The Body Shop lip care comes in a beautiful pink tube. It is in the form of a stick that you need to twist in order to use. The cap is in black color. It weighs 4.2g and is priced at ₹ 350. It is little expensive for a lip balm but it’s worth the price.

- Also, has PA++
- Vitamin E helps in moisturizing, repairing the chapped lips.
- Wheat germ oil also heals and softens the lips.

My Views On Lip Balm:
The Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care is the second variant of lip balm I got. I love the way it works on my lips. I feel my lips are soft and supple after every use. Lips are totally moisturized and are good to use before using any matte lipstick that dries up my lips completely.The lip balm contains SPF 15 PA++ which protects lips from the sun damage. It is for all skin types and is free from cruel animal testing. I would definitely buy again when I run out of this lip balm.

Packaging and Pricing:
It comes in a small plastic tub with metal lid. It is spill-free during travel, which we always want our products to be. The packaging is transparent that helps in keeping check of the amount of product. This in the case will let you know when you need to restock. The scrub is gel in consistency. It comes in 250 ml packaging which is priced at ₹ 1,295. Yes, very expensive (though a personal feel).
- A gentle scrub, not harsh on the skin.
- Not drying on the skin.
- Green tea helps in lifting away dead skin cells.
- Green tea contains antioxidants.
- It contains honey that moisturizes your body.
- Fresh smelling as you open the lid.
- It has got lemon/mint fragrance to it.
- Feels all fresh after usage.
- Pretty packaging.
- The scrub is in light green color with green and white beads.
- Not fit for heavy exfoliation.
- Not a heavy duty scrub.
- Pretty looking but very pricey.
- It contains colorants which I am not personally fond of.
- Can be easily contaminated as there is no spatula to take out the scrub.
This scrub is good for daily mild exfoliation. You can use this to maintain your manicures and pedicures. As you open the lid it smells fresh and minty. It is gel based consistency and has to dip my fingers to take out the scrub for usage. I prefer if they gave a spoon or spatula along. The packaging is pretty good with small tiny beads. It feels good and fresh after using the scrub in the shower. Skin is moisturized and lightly exfoliated. A little goes a long way. Overall, it is good only if you want mild exfoliation and enjoys the look and smell of the scrub. If you are looking for heavy duty scrub then this is not for you. Good for only daily basis exfoliation.
