Last month, after weeks of dried, cracked lips, I thought I'd dig out one of the famous lip scrubs and give it a go. And I've regretted any animosity I've shown towards these products ever since.
All of Lush's lips scrubs are made mostly from castor sugar, which acts as the 'scrub' and jojoba oil, which helps to moisturise the skin. As you can see from the ingredients list, there is not a whole lot more that goes into this product, which is a good thing.
The scrub itself is a bright bubblegum pink colour (hence the name); you can clearly see the grains of the lip scrub which feel extremely gritty when you scoop it up onto your finger. However, the best aspect of this product is that the scent shares itself with that of Snow Fairy, one of Lush's best ever creations.
The scrub smells delicious, a mixture of strawberry bubblegum and candy floss; a scent that certainly smells good enough to eat. And for the thousands of Lushies around the world who have dreamt of drinking Snow Fairy by the gallon, who have perhaps even dipped a finger in and hoped it would taste as good as it smells, Bubblegum is a product that could not have come soon enough. Yes my friends, this is edible Snow Fairy!
To use I simply scoop out a tiny amount with my finger and then rub the scrub all over my lips in a circular motion. Then the best part; I use my tongue to lick off the excess sugar from my lips before applying my favourite lip gloss or balm.
It makes my lips feel beautifully soft and moisturised and removes dead and dried skin, instantly improving the look and feel of my lips. I tend to use this twice daily, and within 3-4 days, my lips are always smooth and kissable.
This small pot, although priced at a hefty £5.50 is fantastic value for money because it can easily last for 6+ months, depending on how often your apply it. I recommend you try it out for yourself, just try not to eat too much of it.
