Swatch 1-Lip Balm
Swatch 2-Pot Butter
1)Products are paraben-free
2)These are tinted lip balms but very faint when compared to Maybeline Baby Lips/Nivea.
4)They are non-greasy,light weight moisturisers.
5)They do not contain over powering fragrance.
6)They are available in many flavours.
7)The Lip balm is more tinted than pot butter so guys can use the pot version.
8)The Lip Balm version has sunscreen,exact SPF not known.
1)Easy availability is an issue.
2)Bodyshop products are expensive.
3)They do contain few comedogenic ingredients.
The Bodyshop products are available in Bodyshop stores.
It is also available online from sites like:
Some of the body shop(TBS) products are decent. These lip balms are good too. These are pretty similar to Nivea Lip Butter,which I have reviewed here
except that it is cheaper and easily available than TBS. I do not prefer lipsticks, so I like mildly tinted ones. It is suitable for day wear with perfect moisturiser and tint,not too heavy. Except for the price tag, no other issues.
My Rating: 4/5
