THE BODY SHOP : DRAGON FRUIT LIP BUTTER





The body shop launches their very new product the dragon fruit lip butter. But before we go on to their newest product. Let me introduce you first the dragon fruit itself.





Dragon fruit as we knew also called red pitaya they are similar to kiwi or melon, as with the taste ??? I hate the taste as a matter of fact, for me its kind of a sour but not so sweet to make the long story short, it taste weird if your not used to the taste of it. The fruit itself has a lot of benefits, old beliefs say the more the weirder the fruit is, the more vitamin components it has. And that's why according to research, it is proven.how??? let's analyze the components shall we???

The typical nutritional values per 100 g of raw pitaya (of which 55 g are edible) are as follows:
  • Water 80-90 g
  • Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) 4–25 mg
  • Ash 0.4-0.7 g
  • Calcium 6–10 mg
  • Calories: 35-50
  • Carbohydrates 9-14 g
  • Carotene (Vitamin A) traces
  • Fat 0.1-0.6 g
  • Fiber 0.3-0.9 g
  • Iron 0.3-0.7 mg Niacin (Vitamin B3) 0.2-0.45 mg
  • Phosphorus 16 – 36 mg
  • Protein 0.15-0.5 g
  • Thiamine (Vitamin B1) traces
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) traces
The aforentioned figures are subject to change as per cultivation conditions.

That's why main ingredients of the dragon fruit lip butter was sort of the same with the very own components of the fruit itself.
so let us fast forward a little...
I'm walking to a mall when I saw this item , though my feet hurts. I went to the body shop store
to grab one for myself. 




and the same logo I saw from the store, it attracts me so much and  I'm really into lip balms,butters,lipstick in short, I invest more at my lips more  than I work for my whole face (I mean make ups). To tell you the truth guys, I'm not a die hard "KIKAY" girl. I'm just into simplicity more that's why. But yeah I was really inspired by some bloggers who really are kikays because why???
simply because they give their heart into something they love the most. And that is to feel pretty and happy with what they are doing of course. So big thanks to them because as what I've said earlier I may not be kikay at heart but some things don't change. It's because you just love to do things you really love the with your own world. So enough of that history of me.

for the container, I must say it's really relevant to the fruit,I score it 8 - 10. HOW???
as you observed by the picture the fruit itself comes a mixture of greenish pink in color, that's why the body shop correlate their product based on the real color of the fruit.
As i've tried it for the first few days, I thought the buttery thing is kind of a heavy, but true enough that was just all false belief. It doesn't feel heavy, well the scent is lovely too.

True enough it makes your lips soft and smoochable, with a warm feeling as well as luscious lips. And together with this when you buy this product, you also help 3 charities, the store sales person will give you a plastic coin shape green colored from 3 charities you will choose the one you prefer the most one is for the pet charity, the other is for the children charity and last but not the least is for the tree planting.
So it makes you feel beautiful not only with yourself but someone also benefited from your kind heart as well. So, to end my review about the product I must say my verdict is....I would probably buy again, it smells good and it's soothing. Even so I might as well suggest this product to those people who really has a bad choppy and flaky lips. knowing the price is reasonable for only P250.00..voila!!! you got your instant lip butter that would really soothe and protect your lips.

ENJOY!!!^_^
