The Body Shop Foundation Dragonfruit Lip Butter

The Body Shop Foundation Dragonfruit Lip Butter ($6) is a fairly new launch wherein all profits from the sales of this Lip Butter go to one of three charities that you vote for. When you buy one of these lip butters in-store or online, you get to vote for a national charity and each charity will receive funding based on the number of votes.

Since it is loaded with Shea Butter, Beeswax and other emollients, this lip butter goes on thick but doesn't feel waxy. It does have a very strong, but beautiful flavor that I love. The scent tends to linger for a very long time. Shea Butter being one of the top ingredients, it feels very rich and takes a while to sink in. On my pigmented lips, it leaves a slight whitish cast, so I use it under a lipstick or during the night. You could wear it alone too as it tends to look glossy after a while. While it may not be the most moisturizing lip butters TBS has to offer, it does a good job softening lips when they aren't extremely dry. 

Ingredients : Butyrospermum Parkii/Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) (Skin-Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Ricinus Communis Seed Oil/Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (Emollient), Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordii Oil Copolymer (Skin-Conditioning Agent - Occlusive), Cera Alba/Beeswax (Emulsifier/Emollient), Lanolin (Emollient), PEG-8 Beeswax (Emulsifier), Parfum/Fragrance (Fragrance), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emollient), Silica (Absorbent), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil/Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent - Occlusive), Ammonium Glycyrrhizate (Flavour), Hylocereus Undatus Fruit Extract/Hylocereus Undatus (Dragon) Fruit Extract (Skin-Conditioning Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Citric Acid (pH Adjuster), CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide (Colour).

Overall, more than anything else, I like the cause that this product was launched for and fully support The Body Shop Foundation's efforts and campgains. The Dragon Fruit Lip Butter is available only through October 28th. If you like lip butters with a fun flavor and would like to support a great cause, be sure to get your hands on this one!
