As part of my Christmas present, the BFF got me a lip scrub from Lush. She had tried it first and loved it and then got it for me. While I love lip glosses and I use a chapsticks/lip balms regularly, that is about the extent of my lip care. Because come on, who really needs to do anything more than that?
Well, in comes the lip scrub and I was so hesitant to try it at first because even though rationally, I know that it’s just sugar, there is something weird about exfoliating your lips. AND licking that scrub off. That is what it said in the directions. Rub gently on your lips and then lick it off. My first thought was ewwwwwwwwww! My second thought was ewwww?
But after reading the ingredients again, I was like ok, just do it. So I exfoliated my lips and then I shook off most of the excess product (because I was still on the ew) and THEN I licked the little bits left and it wasn’t as bad or as ew as I thought it would be since it’s basically flavoured sugar. Mine was cola flavoured!
Plus, my little bits of chapped lips that nothing I do will help in this dry winter weather were actually smooth! I’ve used it a few times now and I am loving this product more than I expected I would.
Plus, Lush is one of my favourite cruelty-free places to shop!
