So as it's getting closer and closer to the coldest months of the year I thought it would be a good idea to invest in a lip scrub as I have on and off dry lips all year round. Especially now that Winter is just around the corner, I've noticed that my lips are suffering majorly from the crisp cold weather. After some research, I looked in to this LUSH lip scrub.
They have quite a few different flavours/scents of the lip scrub - 'Sweet lips' is the one which I've got and it smells and tastes Chocolate-y. They also have, 'Bubblegum' flavour (which the sales assistant told me is the best-seller), 'Mint Julips' which is a Mint-Choc Chip one with Peppermint, Vanilla and Tagetes Oil, so it does have a sweetness to it as well, if you're not the biggest fan of Minty products. Their newest offering of the lip scrubs is a limited edition, Popcorn flavour one! Unfortunately, the one I bought, is now discontinued :( If I had to recommend any other flavour I'd probably go for Bubblegum.
It's so easy, quick and effortless to use. You just need the tiniest bit of the product and scrub it all over your lips in a gentle circular motion. Once you're done, you do, 'exactly what it says on the tin' - lick it off, as all the lip scrubs are one-hundred percent edible! I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the taste and it tends to leave a bit of an after taste, but I'm sure everyone else would probably love it. After you've done your scrubbing, apply a lip balm to seal in all the moisture. DON'T use a lip-gloss/lip-balm/lip-plumper which usually leaves your lips feeling tingly straight after, because your lips are even more sensitive after the scrubbing so the stinging sensations may feel uncomfortable.
This product definitely works. It leaves my lips feeling smooth, soft and glossy once I've used it. The sugar helps to exfoliate the dead skin away. The scrubs also include, Jojoba Oil which helps to keep lips smooth and moisturised. Exactly what I needed. I'd definitely recommend this if you love wearing matte lipsticks but hate the way they emphasize the dryness of your lips when wearing them! I'd apply this scrub about half an hour before I apply my lipstick.
A perfect, long-lasting product for £5.25 as you only need the teeniest-tiniest amount every time you use it.
