Review: The Body Shop Mango Lip Butter

Cost: $8.00 USD
Size: 10 ml

Product Description:
With shea butter from Ghana and Community Trade beeswax from Zambia to keep lips lush.... 

The lid screws on, so there’s no worrying about it popping off! Ive ruined a lot of handbags that way :( The label on top of the lid features pictures of a sliced mango as the background, and printed on top is the company logo and product name in both English and French. The bottom label peels back to reveal a list of ingredients. You may have to squint a bit but I will list them at the end of the review. hehe

MANGO! The mango is subtle and it's mainly a citrus scent, it smells wonderful. I love it. I'm a big fan of fruit like smells.

Texture & Application:
The texture is like a whipped butter. I dont find it to be oily or sticky. It applies nice upon the lips and after time the product sinks into the skin.The lip butter is indeed very soft, creamy, and smooth and the perfect balance between light and heavy. I find it nice to exfoliate the lips, when my lips are a bit dry I pat this on and the flakes disappear in the silkiness of the butter!

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil, Beeswax, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Lanolin, Mangifera Indica (Mango Seed) Butter, PEG-8 Beeswax, Flavor, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Silica, Limonene, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Tocopherol, Geraniol, Linalool, Citral, Titanium Dioxide, Yellow 5 Lake, Red 7 Lake.

Key Ingredients:
  • She Butter - Shea butter is one of nature's great moisturizers. 
  • Mango Seed Oil - Moisturizes the skin.
  • Organic beeswax - Moisturizes and helps to condition dry skin. Acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture. Helps to keep product texture consistent when used over time.
