Lip scrubs are a completely new product to me, I have never tried one until now and I honestly don't know why it has taken me so long to try one. I get very flakey lips during the winter months and sometimes all of the lip balms in the world won't help which is why I wanted to try the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. I haven't seen many lip scrubs on the market apart from the ones at Lush and when it comes to Lush you know its going to be a good product, you can never go wrong with Lush.
I love the packaging, it comes in a little glass jar while it isn't great for travelling it does look really cute.The lid and sides of the pot have a small description about the lip and also a use by date. This lip scrub is basically flavoured caster sugar and I kind of love it. I am a big bubblegum flavoured lover which is why I went for this one. It is kind of like the edible version of snow fairy which I am also a massive fan off. All you do to apply this is take a small amount on your finger and rub it into your lips and either lick off or wipe off. Because it is mainly caster sugar it is completely safe to lick off.
I love this product so much and I think I am becoming slightly addicted to applying it. It tastes incredible, if you love sweet things like myself your going to be a big fan of this. It doesn't hurt the lips while you are getting rid of the dry skin which is what I was a little bit worried about as my lips can be slightly sensitive. It really does a great job at getting my lips nice and smooth again, I normally use this if I am planning on wearing a matte lip product as they tend to enhance dry spots. My lips have been so dry recently which I have put down to the cold weather and this has made a massive difference in my lips and I am gutted I didn't get my hands on this sooner. It does leave behind a slight stickiness to the lips but once a balm or gloss has been applied it goes away completely. No matter how many times in the day I use this, it doesn't hurt my lips or irritate them.
If you suffer from dry lips and lip balms not always help improve your lips so I would definitely recommend trying one of these Lush Lip Scrubs. These scrubs retail for £5.50 each and are currently available in three flavours.
