The Body Shop Lip Juicers Chia Seed-Free

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

The Body Shop Lip Juicers joins the realms of dozens of other EOS Lip Balm Sphere copy cats this Spring with three moisturizing spheres or shall we say triangles that are available in five shade selections.

I see you in the corner over there rubbing your hands in glee at the prospect of adding yet another lip balm to your collection. Oh, wait that’s probably me. No but seriously, I have to question my sanity sometimes because do I really need another lip balm in my beauty life? Well, yes, of course I do duh! Especially when they are as cute as these!

These little balms are inspired by fruit smoothies, are 100% vegan, and formulated with shea butter, marula and organic olive oil to give lips a smooth, hydrated finish. Sadly, they I don’t think they are tinted.

Flavors include:

  • Kiwi, Kale & Watermelon
  • Raspberry, Beetroot & Ginger
  • Strawberry, Pomegranate & Aloe
  • Acai, Blueberry & Dragon Fruit
  • Coconut, Passion Fruit & Carrot

I literally had a kiwi, kale, and watermelon smoothie these morning with a big helping of chia seeds. Please how do I get them to grind down? As they are always terribly crunchy no matter how long I soak them! YAK! What am I doing wrong!? These are the dramas of my life.

Anyway, The Body Shop Lip Juicers are at least chia seed-free! It’s the little things in life that make me happy.

You probably don’t need more lip balm in your life but if you’re anything like me you’re ignoring that little angel on your shoulder telling you not to buy these.

The Body Shop Lip Juicers are available now in stores and online at thebodyshop.com.

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.

    What’s the deal with chia seed? Is there an allergy problem or is it granular for exfoliation?

  • S. Le

    Grind the chia seeds (not soaked) in a nutrabullet and then add the rest of your ingredients. It makes a nice powder that blends into shakes or other recipes ☺️

    • Isabella Muse

      I always soak prior to plopping into the blender. I have a Vitamix but I get these chunky bits of seed :-/ it doesn’t grind them down at all blah! You don’t soak at all!? thanks for the tip! I’m going to get one of those bullet blenders and see if it helps!!!!!!!!!!

      • S. Le

        I love my Vitamix, too. I have all the blenders, hehe. It would probably work in there too, but I haven’t tried it. I think as long as they are dry you can make them into a powder. I make a big batch of the chia powder sometimes that I store for shakes and recipes and can just add a bit here and there. The bullet comes in handy. I get much use out of it and my Vitamix. Highly recommended!!!

        • Isabella Muse

          I do too but for some reason I can’t get a good consistency with chia seeds. I always feel like I’m straining them with my teeth when I’m sipping a smoothie. I must be doing something seriously wrong! Sunfood is the perfect lazy girl/guy chia solution! Already ground up into a powder! But I tend to like to have whole ones around for overnight oats and I just use them in my smoothies as well. I’m odd because they bother me if they aren’t fully grounded in a smoothie but I’m find with them in yogurt or oats. I’m going to try the bullet!!!!!!!! Thanks for the rec. I’ll tell you how I do ;-D

          • S. Le

            Awesome!!! I hope it works out. Gotta get those…Cha, Cha, Cha, Chia (seeds). Oh, the 80’s were a fun time. Never thought I’d be eating the stuff.

          • Isabella Muse

            LOL ;-D I eat so many I might have a small green plant growing in my stomach ;-D Who knew we’d be eating them in 2018!? πŸ˜€ HA!

    • Karen Laux

      Thanks for the tip! I’ve been scared of chia seeds since the last time I had them in a smoothie – I swear they ballooned while in my belly and made me very grumpy and bloated.

      • Isabella Muse

        I tend to soak them overnight first but the ground up powder def is a better option!

  • Kris

    I was looking at these and two scents were up my alley. I didn’t swatch them tho, but if you say they might be not tinted, I should buy one.

  • Seuni

    When I make smoothies, I always prepare the chia seeds first. I brew about 50 ml of strong green tea and add the chia seeds after removing the bag. You still need to stir them up a bit, but it only takes a minute with the hot water. Preparing ~50 ml is sufficient for rehydrating a spoonful of seeds without the hot tea making the smoothie too warm. You still get the whole, fluffy chia seeds this way. I personally like the texture; it’s like mini boba pearls. However, if you hate the texture altogether, yeah, I would get chia powder. :/

    • Isabella Muse

      you soak in hot water!? Really!? That sounds interesting! And in green tea? I’m all about boba so I can def take that texture. How long do you leave them in the hot water? I typically soak over night in cool water. Never did it in hot! Tell me more πŸ˜€

  • Nat

    Ooo I don’t know when we’ll get these in the UK (for all I know they could already be out!) but they sound so yummy!

    I’d definitely give strawberry a go. πŸ˜›

  • Sara

    I don’t get the giant lip things. As many lip balms I have, I can’t get on board with these things. Even if they come in coconut. There, I said it.
