I braved the crazy Christmas crowds at the weekend (have you been to Lush lately? MOBBED!) just to get a new lip scrub. My lips have been really dry and cracked lately and in typical fashion, I’d just run out of my last, and now discontinued, Lush lip scrub, Sweet Lips. It was like Sophie’s choice choosing between the four flavours – Santa’s Lip Scrub, Mint Julips, Bubblegum and Popcorn but the pressures of the crowds forced me to be extra decisive so I grabbed the little pink pot of Bubblegum Scrub.
Oh little pot of scrumptiousness!!! It smells and tastes as good as it looks. The scent really reminds me of Snow Fairy and it tastes sweet like candy.. WARNING, you may get addicted. Personally I think lip scrub is an all year round must, but it’s definitely a winter one. I try to scrub my lips once a day to keep the chaps at bay, especially if I want to wear lipstick. Packed with exfoliating caster sugar and softening jojoba oil it buffs away dry skin, leaving lips kissably soft and helps lipstick to glide on.
Okay, it is a bit tricky to use. It’s quite a dry scrub, which is good because it’s not packed full of water and nasties to bulk it out, but it does make it quite messy. You might want to position yourself over the sink to catch the fall out. Scoop up a good lump, massage it onto the lips, and then simply lick off the excess... yum yum bubblegum. Check out Lush’s Lip Scrubs £5.50 here. Each pot lasts absolutely AGES so they’re definitely a good buy!
