The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Lip Butter


The weather in Canada has been so cold lately, and I've been trying to keep my skin from suffering. I've always loved The Body Shop’s Lip Butters, and lately I've been using the Pink Grapefruit scent. I love a heavy lip moisturizer year round, but I find it essential in the colder months. I've been slathering this lip butter on my lips whenever I'm at home, and my lips actually haven’t cracked yet this Winter!

The Body Shop’s Lip Butters come housed in little pots, so you do have to use your fingers to apply these to your lips. Because of this, I tend to just use these while I'm at home, and not at work, school, or on the go. The Pink Grapefruit scent is a pink cream, but it applies clear to your lips. I love the Coconut scent from The Body Shop, but that lip butter does leave a bit of a white cast on my lips. The Pink Grapefruit formula leaves a nice shine on my lips, nothing intense or shimmery.

These Lip Butters are so thick and creamy, you don’t need a ton of product to cover your lips. I find this formula very moisturizing and hydrating, Like I mentioned earlier, my lips haven’t cracked this Winter. The temperatures in Ottawa this week have been insanely cold, around -30C! My lips normally peel and crack when the weather gets this cold, but I’ve been really surprised this year! I've also been exfoliating my lips daily with Lush’s Popcorn, and I think that’s been great for my lips too.

The Pink Grapefruit scent is very citrusy and invigorating. I really like it, but my boyfriend hates it! So, I guess it’s a love or hate scent, so give it a sniff in the store before buying it. Have you tried any of The Body Shop’s Lip Butters? Which scents/formulas are your favourites? J

  2. Great review.
    My lips have made it all winter without cracking too, until this week. So I pulled out my Sweet Lemon version of this butter and it pretty much cured it. I really love the texture of these babies...plus they smell great.

  3. I have the chocolate one and love it. Maybe your BF would like that scent better. :-) Who doesn't love chocolate?
