Remember yesterday when I was moaning about having awfully dry/flakey lips... then Claire commented mentioning lip scrubs and I remembered that my step-sister had very kindly bought me this Lush one for Christmas and I'd totally forgotten about it!
Made with castor sugar and jojoba oil, these lip scrubs are supposed to buff away any dead skin to leave your lips feeling soft and smooth.
First of all this smells amazing; really vanilla/chocolatey and it tastes absolutely great, probably the best thing about this is the fact that it's made with actual edible sugar. I hate it when a lip product smells absolutely amazing but tastes foul; this tastes pretty much as good as it smells and although I wouldn't recommend spooning this into your mouth, it really does taste nice and sweet when you're using it.
To use it you just put a bit on your finger and massage onto your lips, I concentrated on the worst areas of my lips but also tried to spread it all over, then licked it off when I'd finished :-P My only issue with this is that it can be a little bit difficult to get some on your finger while the tub is still full (as mine is) but this is completely minor and wouldn't put me off rebuying.
After 2 uses I am starting to see a difference in my lips, I think it's great to use before you apply lipstick so or before you apply lip balm just so you're getting rid of the excess skin to give you like a 'clean' base for whatever product comes next.
I definately recommend this if you have problem lips or even if you have perfect lips and you want something to keep them that way. You can buy it online from the Lush website for £4.95 which does seem pricey but at the end of the day we are talking about Lush and I reckon this will last me a long time because they've packed loads of product into a small tub (25g in fact!)
I'm becoming dangerously addicted to Lush products, and I fear it could be very costly!! I'm currently eyeing up their lip butters; have any of you tried them??
