Lips don’t really get a lot of attention when it comes to skin care, I think. Well, mine didn’t used to, anyway.
In the winter, I get really sore and dry lips so I eventually got into the habit of applying Burt’s Bees lip balm every night before bed, just as a precaution. My lips are now in the best condition that they’ve ever been in. They’re so soft and lovely – if you’re looking for a lip balm that works, try Burt’s Bees. Anyway, this post is about Lush, not Burt’s Bees!
Lush’s lip scrubs are just another step towards super soft lips. They’re perfect for getting a ready base before applying liquid lipstick. If you aren’t sure what they are, it’s a lipstick that you apply like a wet gloss, but it dries completely and turns into a matte lipstick. They show up all the lumps and cracks in your lips, so having scrubbed lips before hand is a must. I think all of my favourite lipsticks are liquid formulas, so I use this scrub a lot!
Because it’s Lush, it’s completely cruelty-free and it smells absolutely sublime. If you have a sweet tooth, this is for you because not only does it smell great, but it tastes great too… you heard me… If you’re a fan of Lush, you might recognise the scent from the Snow Fairy range because it’s from the same family. It tastes how you would imagine Snow Fairy to taste.
To apply it, you just scoop out a little (really little) amount onto your finger and rub it all over your lips. Give it a good scrub until you can feel that your lips are really soft. Then, you can just lick off the excess and enjoy the sweet taste! That’s the dream.
I guess it looks a bit silly when you’re doing it, but it’s worth it for the taste alone.
This is actually one of my favourite products. I bought it for £5.50 at Lush around Christmas time and I’ve barely scratched the surface. It’s definitely worth the money.
Have you ever used a lip scrub?
