My review of the body shop lip juicer

Can anyone have enough lip balms? No in my case as I have dry lips and winter+dry lips is a very bad combination.When I visited TBS I was immediately attracted to the cute little lip balms, which was their new launch. I really love the cute packaging. The lip juicers are TBS’s version of EOS but not exactly round like EOS, but is pointed and reminds me of the fat colored pencils we used when we were kids. Do you remember those? Are they still available? And why am I asking that 😛 Okay back to the topic.

The lip juicers are inspired by fruit smoothies and are available in 5 shades. These are 100% vegan and formulated with community trade shea butter, marula oil and organic olive oil. The lip juicers does not contain mineral oils, paraffin or petrolatum, which is great to know.

Each lip juicers have a different fruity scent, not very strong but still delicious and it’s really hard not to eat these. These are also tinted and provides a good tint even on my pigmented lips. I have the strawberry, pomegranate and Aloe which has a strawberry scent and gives a red tint.

The body shop lip juicers gets quickly absorbed into your lips ( almost immediately) leaving your lips soft, smooth and hydrated. Your lips are truly nourished and you can feel it. The lip balm stays there for quite some time, actually you don’t feel it’s there but the tint and the moisturisation stays for very long time.

The five available shades are:

  • Kiwi, Kale and Water Melon
  • Raspberry, Beetroot and Ginger
  • Coconut, Passion fruit and carrot
  • Acai, Blueberry and Dragon fruit
  • Strawberry, Pomegranate and Aloe

The Body shop here does not have the former two but I really hope they will stock up soon.

  • Vegan, contains nourishing ingredients.
  • No mineral oil, paraffin and petrolatum.

Overall, I think The body shop lip juicers are a great option to try if you are a lip balm hoarder or you if you need a good lip balm. The yummilicious scent and the cute packaging is definitely going to make you wanna get this if you check this out at their stores. The nourishing ingredients like Shea butter, Marula and organic olive oil will give a smooth and hydrated finish to your lips. I give it a 4.7/5 and I highly recommend this.

I am talking about the body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution. Please keep reading to know what, why, how and whatever questions you have in your mind about this product.

The body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution review

thebeautymascot/the body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution

The tea tree range has been my favorite range when it comes to The body shop. Such a wonderful range of products especially suited for oily/combination skin. The Anti-imperfection daily solution also is from the tea tree range.The Anti-imperfection daily solution comes in a green colored glass bottle with a dropper dispenser cap, which is black. Dropper is perfect as you can adjust the amount of product getting dispensed. You just need 2-3 drops of the product. The packaging is quite handy but is made of glass, so you might not prefer it while travelling.

The Anti-imperfection daily solution is a clear watery solution. This is not a moisturizer, this is more like a serum. This glides on smoothly on the face and absorbs into your skin as soon as it is applied. Not oily or greasy at all.

The daily solution has tea tree oil as one of its main ingredient so has a very fresh fragrance of tea tree oil. Not very overpowering fragrance and fades away really quick.

I use this two times, morning and evening.Just take 2-3 drops on my fingers and tap this on my face. It feels very soothing and fresh when applied on the skin. The anti-imperfection daily solution has so much improved how my skin felt. It mattifies the skin, makes pores less visible, reduces acne marks and makes skin appear smoother and fresher.  This claims to get rid of blemishes, well it does not prevent any breakouts or anything but yes helps is reducing them and also helps in overall repairing of the skin. As i have mentioned earlier my skin was in such a bad condition and this product has helped me in improving my skin.

Let’s talk about moisturizing. The SA said you can skip moisturizer when using this. But I disagree. This gives some amount of moisturization but not enough for my combination skin. So you definitely have to moisturize after using this. And if you have dry skin , then you definitely definitely must moisturize. The brand itself claim this to be a pre-serum, but since I don’t wish to add that one more step, I use it as a serum.

But I seriously don’t mind that. It also helps in lightening dark spots on regular use. I have been using this for the past 4-5 months. But you don’t have to use it for such a long time to see results. Definitely shows results in about a month. TBS claims it to show results within 4 weeks. You need only a few drops of the product so this is going to last long. Even after using for 4-5 months, the bottle isn’t empty yet.

Overall 

In love with:

  • The liquid glides on smoothly on the face.
  • Not oily or sticky and absorbs really fast into the skin.
  • Can be used both during summer and winter.
  • Fresh fragrance.
  • Mattifies the skin.
  • Reduces acne and helps in fading acne marks.
  • Visibly reduces redness and fastens process of healing.
  • Pores become less visible.
  • Improves the skin texture.

Not in love with:

  • Some might not like the smell.
  • Some might find it expensive, but for the quality its worth. It’s also going to last for a long time.

Final verdict

I’m really impressed how clearer and smoother my skin felt after using this. Does not prevent acne, but helps in reducing it and also clearing the acne marks. The Body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution has definitely improved how my skin looked and felt. For that reason I am really happy with this. I am not going to repurchase this as I have some other products lined up to try but I highly recommend you give it a try especially if you have oily/combination skin. I give it 4.8/5
