Exfoliating your skin is somewhat of a common sense skincare routine procedure, but not everyone thinks to exfoliate their lips. You see all these online home remedies for DIY lip scrubs and whatnot but hey! Why waste the time when you can buy one that lasts you forever! Unlike makeup, it doesn't go off!
Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub - Vanilla & Chocolate
If you're not familiar with Lush they are a Handmade Cosmetics company who focus on the most organic ingredients, and DON'T test on animals! Yayy!
Their Lip Scrubs come in several flavours, although just checking on their website they only have Bubblegum available? So maybe check in individual stores see if they still have others?
The product comes in a little 25g glass jar which is very sturdy to carry around, although sometimes a little heavy for everyday if you don't use it all the time.
Its a simple sugar scrub which igredients include Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil, Vanilla Extract, Cocoa, and Targetes Oil. The scrub can be used by itself on dry lips and wiped off after or the Lush Sales Consultants even say you can eat it afterwards because it's just sugar! But think about that one first...you scrub your lips with this, and eat it AFTER? You will have dead skin cells mixed inside that scrub once your done with the lips so are you gonna eat your own dead skin? Really? No didnt think so! So don't listen to them, I don't think it's very healthy, Just wash off or wipe off excess with a tissue.
My lips are always extremely dry and cracked, nevermind the winter months, my body is in desperation for moist! I use this 2-3 times a week and it keeps my lips healthy and plumped. Lip Balm is always most effective straight after using this too.
Below is a picture of how my lips are before and after use:
Left: Dry and icky =( *sad face*
Right: Plumped, circulation is better so lips are pinker, Lips are fuller looking. =D *happy face*
If you're lazy like me and cant be bothered to make your own at home. I would definately recommend investing in one of these.They're £5.50 but honestly, this has lasted me over a year, if not more! and I've only used like half.
Can you recommend any other great affordable lip scrubs? x
