You Need This: The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Lip Butter

Oh the Muse is finding the new Body Shop Sweet Lemon Lip Butter every so delightful.

You need this!


OMG! Dude! I love this stuff. I’m really keen on the sweet, tart taste of lemon and equally fascinated by the scent so of course I’m kinda all about digging on the new Body Shop Sweet Lemon Collection. They pretty much covered everything in the way of body care with the new Sweet Lemon Collection but I can’t help but wish for a body spray or fragrance in lemon, perhaps for the Summer?

But today isn’t about the bath and body bits of the collection, I’m concentrating on my lips which are all puckered up on the sugary sweet tartness from The Body Shop Sweet Lemon Lip Butter. Loves it!

This formula is like body butter but for your lips! It’s a dreamy, creamy milky formula that glides onto lips leaving behind a high shine and the tart taste of lemons. The butter-like texture just feels so incredible on my dry, parched lips! The formula contains anti-oxidants and vitamin C to moisturize and soften your lips while shea butter helps to protect and nourish. It conditions my dry lips and leaves them soft and smooth. I like keeping this by my bed and slathering on before heading off to dream land. It’s a bit too rich for me to wear out but love it prior to bed as I wake up with super soft lips in the AM.

Loves it!

Overall, the sweet lemony taste and incredibly buttery formula makes this a lip balm you absolutely need.

Def pick one or two up your next trip to The Body Shop! Loves it and Muse Approves it for purchase.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I picked up the Sweet Lemon lotion the other day, which is quite nice. It goes well with my C.O. Bigelow Lemon perfume… 🙂

    • the Muse

      hey jonnie adore that perfume 😀 and loving the sweet lemon lotion 😀 you need the shower gel for layering!

      • jonnie

        I think I do! I avoided buying the lip butter just ’cause I don’t like the sticking my finger in the pot thing… it does sound nice too. Maybe I’ll indulge next visit. I don’t live near any Body Shops so it’s easier to just say no! 😛

        I think the only complaint I have with the lotion is that the scent doesn’t linger. Oh well.

        • the Muse

          ah me too jonnie I’m anal about that but I just try to be careful when I use 😀

  • Heather / Eyeconic

    Ooh wants it! I just stopped in the other day and loved the lemon scent but couldn’t decide what I wanted. I don’t think I even saw the lip butter. Time to make my first body shop purchase 🙂

  • Sarah

    In comparison to the other Lip Butters from TBS, if you’ve tried them, would you say this is more moisturizing?

    • the Muse

      sarah I haven’t tried them…this is my first butter…..if I head into store I’ll snag one and let you know 😀

  • dina

    hola 🙂 o/t as usual but similar to jonnie’s comment have you smelled the lemon pomegranate (co bigelow) @ BBW? i’m not really a pom chic but it give just a bit of sweetness and smooths out the lemon i think, ck it out 😀
    i briefly sniffed this sweet lemon and for some reason i got a good amount of floral with it?? maybe it was just me or some other things mixing, i think it was the body butter?

    • the Muse

      no dina….but it’s not in a mist or perfume right just the body lotion or something right? nooo no floral here just straight hardcore lemon, sniff again!!!!!!!!!

  • Hermine

    Hiya from Australia. I’m off to go stalk Body Shop here for this, it looks absolutely luscious. I just gave you a sunshine award on my blog and you can get it there 🙂

  • Vonvon

    From the pic of the ‘swatch’, it looks like lemon cream sauce about to drip off…so yummylicious indeed.

    • the Muse

      vonvon it’s so thick and ooey gooey 😀 good description you got there 😀

  • Ann

    Just a note for who lives in colder areas, the TBS lip butters gets rock hard when you don’t leave it in a warm room.

  • Fabiola

    Ooh! This is really calling out my name! I love all things lemony and limey. Come to think of it, I love the scent of all Body Shop products. 🙂

    • the Muse

      hey faboila 😀 me too!!!!!!! lemon/lime totally gets me every single time 😀

      • jonnie

        Remember the old BBW scent Limelight? Still my all-time favorite… ahh… you can still find it sometimes on eBay but at this point I’m thinking ahh, it was discontinued in early ’98… it’s not exactly fresh any more!

        • the Muse

          what limelight where when how! sounds intriguing jonnie 😀 ew no LOL

  • Lisa

    Oh goodness, I’ve been trying to avoid this store like the plague lately. I know as soon as I go in, I’ll indulge way too much. But this lip butter sounds mighty tasty! Might have to pick up the lighter moisturizer and shower gel, what a perfect pick me up in the morning! Makes me think of lemon pound cake, lemonade and summers. Why must I be tempted so?

    • the Muse

      Aww lisa that sounds amazing 😀 Lemon pound cake, lemonade…Mmmmmm! delightful!

  • jonnie

    Just in case you needed help adding to the lemmings, I’ll throw in that lemonade, pound cake and summer is a perfect assessment of this scent for me… 😀

  • Robyn

    this sounds amazing not often i get that excited by something for my lips (unless its some wacky blue lipgloss or something) but my lips are so dry right they were just getting better after winter but friends gig on saturday and the venue was like a sauna but i didnt get a drink (was too busy jumping up and down non stop for 4 hours) and they are a real cracked mess going to drop in past body shop asap and get this

    there might be the danger of me eating it tho lol

    • the Muse

      LOL robyn a big danger it’s d-lish 😀 and it’ll do your dry, tried lips good, feels so yummy on my lips and slick and just so refreshing, love!

  • gio

    Oh, I need to try this! I love lemony stuff and this sounds so tasty!

  • Jane

    I love the body shop’s lip butters I have pretty much all of them and they are so good the smell and what they do for your lips. Next to bath and body works the body shop is my go to place.

  • Masha

    Thank you for the recommendation Muse! I have sampled so many lip balms and this is first one that has JUST enough moisture for my chapped lips. I wish LUSH could take note and make their lipbalms as glossy!

    • the Muse

      yay so happy to hear it masha! agreed! I love Lush but WTH is up with their balms!

  • Troy Purdy

    how can i get this stuff its great and cures cold sores if continually used it is discontinued at the body shop
