I’ll be honest.
I thought that lip scrubs were a cute idea, but ultimately overrated, and that gently scrubbing my lips with a toothbrush would be a better and cheaper means.
That was until Monday 2nd May when I was shopping and visited the Lush shop.
Sitting on the left hand shelf of the store were three lipscrub flavored. Popcorn (smelled yummy!), Bubblegum (I hate bubblegum so I didn’t smell it) and Mint Julep.
Since I’m a big fan of mint, I picked the Mint Julep one and thought well, for £5.50 (around under $8 and just under €7) why not give it a try?
So once I had drove home, and was sat in front of the latest Game of Thrones episode, I tried it out.
It smells amazing. But it works (and tastes) even better. It’s basically just flavored sugar, with all natural ingredients (and since its Lush, you know it’s Vegan friendly).
You take a small amount of the sugar on your index finger and gently scrub it onto your lips, and then mash your lips together (like if you’ve just put on lipstick or lipgloss) and then you can either wash it off (pfff) or make like me, and lick it off.
Then after, you can either put on your fave balm (mine is NUXE Rêve de Miel) or you can put on your lipstick or gloss onto soft and smooth lips!
I definitely recommend sugar scrubs for your lips now, and if you check out Pinterest you can even have a bash at making your own! But for now, I’m sticking to my Lush scrub, and I for sure want to try out Jeffree Star’s Mojito lib scrub now!
