Hello and welcome to my first ever product review post.
I wanted my first review to be something fun, affordable and cruelty free, as well as a top quality product, that actually works. So, i’ve gone with my heart and have decided to use one of my absolute favourite products, Lip scrubs from LUSH. I feel that the lip scrubs do all of the above and although many of you will already be familiar with them, if anyone isn’t and then discovers it because of this post, I will be so happy to have spread the lush love!
LUSH is a shop I go into for a treat. Sometimes for me, usually for someone else (my two boys love a LUSH bath bomb). LUSH has been in Norwich for over a decade and I don’t recall too many times when I’ve been into the city and not gone in or walked past and taken in a big whiff of... well... lushness!
The pot I first purchased was 'The Kiss'. It contains natural ingredients including sugar, safflower oil, salt, and cocoa butter,
It has a sweet sherbet taste to it with a bit of a zing, (think love heart sweets) and within the scrub there are tiny little confetti hearts that melt when you lick them off (I know, so cute)! Basically, It’s a lot of love, in a little pot and I can’t get enough of it, or tell enough people about it! I was impressed, not only by the application and removal technique, (who wouldn't be) but also the feeling of my lips afterwards as it exfoliated them, leaving them smooth and soft.
Other flavours of this little pot of loveliness include, mint chocolate, bubble gum, honey, popcorn and mint julep. I don't have them all, (yet) but am well on the way! I use mint chocolate in my bridal kit and it’s often greeted with ooos and aaahs from the bride and her bridesmaids, who always seem to enjoy using it as much as I do.
The lip scrub are perfect for applying in the morning and before applying lipstick. They leave no residue after exfoliating the lips, so they are soft, smooth and well prepared for long wear lipstick application. I don’t tend to use them in my nighttime routine because they do feel like a sweet treat and I don’t want that after I’ve brushed my teeth for the night. However, for first thing in the morning, after you’ve brushed your teeth, (but before you put on your lippie) they are perfect!
So, if you suffer with dry lips, want to buy a gift for someone or simply treat yourself, then the lip scrubs by LUSH are perfect.
The only issue you will have is trying to choose between all the different flavours!
