lush lip scrub

| lush bubblegum lip scrub £4.95 - lush |

i held off on buying this for so long! i don't like spending money on things that i can make and a lip scrub s a prime example of this. the only reason i eventually caved was sheer laziness. and the fact that it is pink.... and smells like bubblegum (i'm easily swayed.)

oh my goodness this just smells divine! and it tastes exactly like the pink bubblegum i used to buy from the corner shop when i was little, super sweet and almost a little sickly. try to use this without licking it off at the end... go on i dare you! (and before you ask, it is totally safe to do so! don't worry.)

the scrub is quite abrasive and if you use too much it can make your lips quite sore. saying that, i think i've finally got the knack of how much i need to use each time, so now it is far less harsh on my skin. it easily clears all of the gross flaky dead skin to my lips and leaves them smooth and much prettier looking. that means that i can apply lipstick nicely without it peeling off as the day progresses. the little pot is perfect for chucking in your handbag a using throughout the day as well.

yes this is massively overpriced for what it is (basically flavoured sugar) but i'd imagine the pot would last for ages. i've had mine for a month and barely made a dent in it, even though i never stop using it! i also thought the little glass pot would be great for storing my own home-made lip scrub (f i ever get around to making one!)

this has truly become a holy grail product for me these past few weeks. is it wrong that i want to buy all of the flavours? maybe when i get paid ;)

  1. It does last for ages! I use this a couple of times a week, the same one you've got, and I've had it since Christmas. I've barely used half of it yet!! Sometimes I unscrew the lid and could have sworn that I had more in there than I did last week xD

  3. This is definitely a lip saviour for me, it works so well! I think it is worth the extra bit of money just for the flavour haha, and it should last a while!

  6. I notice a lot of the store made lip scrubs are very abrasive. I like them for the scent too though. Honestly, a lip scrub is not needed. The same scrub you use to clean the rest of your face can be used on your body! Oh how "they" want us to spend money lol

  7. I love this, but I find it hard to get past the fact LUSH are charging so much money for what essentially is flavoured sugar. Delicious though, it leaves the lips smelling and tasting sweet all day x

  8. I have the sweet lips chocolate flavoured one and absolutely love it. It is definitely an amazing product and am also too lazy to bother making it myself!
