Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub:
As soon as the temperature starts to drop I get dry,cracked, painful lips. It happens every year so the only time of the year I would like to wear to wear more than a clear gloss on my lips, I can't as lipstick clings to the dry patches and looks horrible! This year I decided to find something to help so I could wear lipstick over Christmas/new year/my birthday and also so my lips are in tip-top shape for my wedding in April.
Luckily Lush were on hand with some Bubblegum Lip Scrub! For those of you unfamiliar with the idea of a lip scrub (as I was until a few days a go) let me tell you basically what it is. Lip scrub is some kind of mildly abrasive material (normally sugar) usually with a moisturising oil and some flavour added. Since using this I am quite sure olive oil and caster sugar would work as well but it wouldn't look, smell or taste as amazing as this!
The lip scrub in a little glass pot with a black plastic lid; it bears the simple labels which always adorn Lush products as well a cute sticker on the base showing when the lip scrub was made, when it should be used by and features the name and a picture of the person who made it. It's a cute touch and as us ladies know it's the little things like that, that keep us coming back for more!
Obviously the glass jar can be recycled and the lid can be returned the store so Lush can recycle it into plastic pots for some of their other products. You can actually take in any plastic lids like those found on milk bottles, fizzy drinks bottles etc. so they too can be recycled.
The scrub itself is bright pink, think 1980s neon and you will be close. I love the colour and it makes me smile whenever I take off the lid. The smell is very similar to the "Hubba Bubba" bubblegum I used to have as a kid, it's very sweet and girly and it tastes the exact same way. The taste does linger on your lips for several hours after application which I don't mind at all but it could put some people off.
To use you simply get a little of the scrub onto your finger and massage gently onto your lips to exfoliate and reveal the softer skin underneath. To finish you simply lick it off your lips. I must say that you do only need a tiny bit and you must not rub too hard either. I always feel the need to add an intensive lip moisturiser afterwards too, not because this dries my lips but just because exfoliated skin takes moisture better and my lips are really dry to start with.
This product certainly works and within 48 hours of it's first use (I use it once a day) my lips felt softer than they had for years. I still have dry patches but I am sure with regular use they will go completely. The other half noticed that my lips were softer so it can't just be wishful thinking!
A 25g jar costs £4.95 which really isn't bad considering the price of other all natural scrubs I have found online (some over £11.00) and considering that you need so very little at a time. I imagine this pot will last me at least 6 months and less that £1.00 a month for smoother lips can't be bad!
