Lush Mint Julips Sugar Scrub
Advantages: smells lovely and leaves lips looking and feeling in tip top condition
Disadvantages: hard to resist licking it all off
Mint Julips is a lip scrub from Lush. Although it has a horrible name the scrub itself is really good. As you might have guessed from the name it smells of mint but it still has a lovely almost edible sweet smell to it. For me it reminds me of mint chocolate and when I apply it to my lips it always puts me in the mood for chocolate and I have to stop myself from licking it off.
It is quite expensive at £4.95 for a 25g jar of the scrub but it like most lip scrubs from lush is really good quality and better than a lot of lip products from so called premium brands. It is made from sugar which is what will exfoliate your lips and some oils to soothe and nourish. The peppermint oil that gives the scrub its destinctive smell really feels zingy when you first put the scrub on and you can feel your lips tingling and the peppermint oil absorbing into the skin and soothing any chapped bits you might have.
The jajoba oil and the vanilla extract work to moisturise and leave lips in tip top condition. Unlike a lot of scrubs that just remove dead skin Mint Julips actually does moisturise lips as well and because of the oils even when you wash the scrub off the oils stay on the lips protecting them and keeping them moisturised just be sure not to rub your lips with a towel.
To use the scrub you jut need to apply some to your lips and then use gentle circular motions with your finger tips for a minute or so to really make sure you get rid of all the dead flaky skin. When you have done this you can then remove the excess sugar by either just splashing a little hot water on your lips or by gentle dabbing with a wet cloth or cotton wool.
Using this scrub just a few time will make your lips appear in much better condition that they originally started and if you use it a couple of times a week should preven you from getting sore chapped lips in the first place and your lips will look super soft and smooth all year long.
Summary: Another fab lip product from lush
