New Product Alert: The Body Shop Pink Hi-Shine Lip Treatment

Generally, I get frustrated when "charity" products wind up giving only a miniscule percentage of profits to the causes they supposedly benefit. Maybe I'm a cynic, but it seems tacky for a company to bring out a charity product, then donate only 5% or so to the charity while keeping 95% as profits. So I'm really happy that through sales of its new limited-edition Hi-Shine Lip Treatment ($11.50), The Body Shop is giving at least 75% of proceeds to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

In the tube, this limited-edition gloss looks like it might be too disco. It's a bubblegum pink with tiny pink sparkles, which—let's face it—has the potential to be a little more Barbie-at-Studio-54 than you'd ever want. Fortunately, when it's on lips, it's subtle enough for daytime wear. The translucent color provides shine without adding color, making it a good choice for a layering gloss. It's slightly sticky, which I'm not crazy about because I keep smacking my lips. Then again, I wouldn't be smacking my lips so much if it weren't for the delightful scent of the gloss. The Body Shop says it's scented with passion fruit, but to me it smells exactly like Kasugai litchi gummies. Yum.

I'm happy to support the cause. It's still cheaper than the Lancome juicy tubes glosses, which IMHO are the best glosses on the market (perhaps with the exception of MAC lipglass). I wonder how it works here in an overseas market; does it go to a different cause here of the same type, or do they not sell the product at all? GOod excuse to pop into my local store and find out =)

This has already come and gone, where I live, a month or so back. It's so juicy! I couldn't resist buying it and I hope they'd bring it back again.

I saw this while walking by the Body Shop the other day, and now I might have to get it myself. I'm a total sucker for lipglosses, and those gummies are DELICIOUS!
