Lush lip scrub review!

I have not heard much about this stuff anywhere, or heard much of any lip exfoliator/scrub for that matter. And in my opinion, the fact exfoliating lips is not talked about more is a travesty!

and here are 4 reasons why…

My lips are often dull after doing my foundation, even after wiping them –  I never find my lipstick goes on as well unless i have exfoliated before application. Lip stick is less flakey and generally sits a lot smoother and is longer lasting after exfoliating my lips.

The blood flow makes my lips so much plumper – I can walk out confident without a lip tint or lipstick on. Exfolating makes my lips look so much brighter and healthier and I would be more than happy with o’natural lips as long as i have exfoliated them.

The lush lip exfoliator range tastes SO good! – I am currently using the bubblegum flavour from Lush, but I have previously used their popcorn and mint Julips (which is a minty chocolate scrub) and both I have LOVED scrubbing them all over my lips, if not just for the effect they have on my lips but also the taste they leave lingering. They really do taste like what is said on the little pot so I would recommend going for your favourite flavour. For me after trying three of the flavours my heart will always lie with bubblegum.IMG_6516

It takes off the dead skin you never even knew was there, revealing a much healthier looking lip – if you are anything like me you will rub your lips sat and work and find (without going into too much information) horrible flakey skin. Lip scrub completely stops this and as long as I don’t go more than three days without using my scrub the top layer of skin on my lips will remain a healthy pink.IMG_6514

So how and when do I apply it if you have not guessed already. I place a small amount as shown in the picture and rub vigorously all over my top and bottom lip after I have done my morning make up. I will then leave the scrub on while I brush my teeth and as you can guess this takes most of the left over scrub and dead skin cells off and then I will take a flannel and wipe the excess off and reveal the lovely plump pink lip I will be wearing that day.

So far the lush scrub is the only one I have any experience with but if anyone has any other scrub they think is worth trying please let me know. The scrub retails at £5.50 and in my opinion this is a little high but when the demand (I expect) is so high and the supply is lacking, Lush would be silly to make their scrub a steal. But, before I was introduced to this lush scrub I was making my own and I will do a post with a DIY lip scrub for you this week.

Much love,

  1. I will forever have a LUSH lip scrub in my skin care collection – they are just too good! I am currently getting through their limited edition Valentines scrub and it is delicious too! Well worth a try when it comes out again next year. When that isn’t available though I usually go for Bubblegum – it’s just as yummy! xx
