The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm ($9) was a little lip balm I picked up recently when it was on sale so I got it for around four or so dollars. Having a rather good track record with some of the Body Shop’s lip butters I was quite happy to indulge as I was expecting a shimmery honey flavored gloss.

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm comes in a tiny beehive like sphere. Inside you’ll find a dense shimmery champagne beige lip balm. This little balm actually gets rather good review’s on the Body Shop’s website but I might be in the minority here as I didn’t like it.
The formula is supposed to taste like honey and plumps & repair lips but the balm is quite dense and feels dry when I apply it on my mouth. I also dislike the color which nudes my lips out slightly….so paired with the drier texture and the color my lips end up look rather dry and gross. The flavor isn’t quite honey it’s more a subtle lemon taste. As it warms it does have a more balmy consistency but the texture for the most part runs thinner and drier.
I could be nit picky with this one as I read a few raving reviews for it but personally The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm at its original nine dollar price tag wasn’t doing it for me. I’d recommend sticking to the far nicer Lip Butter Collection that The Body Shop does!
