|| 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 ;)
