Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub
Advantages: Smells and tastes good, and leaves the lips feeling soft and smooth
Disadvantages: The price considering what the product is
My lips can get quite dry and flaky and it can look a bit unattractive, especially if I am applying lipstick on top. I have bought most of the lips scrubs by Lush but that doesn't stop me from buying some more... Especially when I found out about the new Popcorn one.
What does the product do?
The product contains sugar and salt particles which buff the lips removing all dry and dull skin from the lips leaving them looking in a better condition and feeling smooth. It also contains Jojoba Oil and Coconut Oil to soften, hydrate and nourish the lips.
How do you use the product?
A small amount of the product is to be massaged onto the lips using the finger in circular motions for a few minutes. This should be done over the sink as you can get in quite a mess. When the time is up, you can either rinse the product off or you can also lick it off again as the product is completely edible.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in a little glass jar that is transparent and you can see the product inside. The jar has a screw top lid and the lid has a sticker on it which gives a little bit more information about the product. The product will cost you about £5 for 25 grams which is quite expensive for a product which you can make at home for much cheaper but I wouldn't want the mess! It can be bought from your local Lush store or from its online website.
Application and Performance
The product has a golden colour to it that you would expect from a popcorn product. It smells a bit like popcorn, being buttery, salty and sweet. The application of the product can be a bit of a messy job which is why I apply it over the sink. You don't need to use much of the product, but what you do use can crumble away as you massage the product in. Despite the product having plenty of massaging particles, it doesn't hurt the skin on my lips but it still feels like it's doing a good job. The product tastes both salty and sweet so I lick most of it off and then rinse off the rest of the residue so that I feel clean again. Once the product has been rinsed off my lips are left feeling really smooth and the flaky dull skin is gone. They also feel nice and soft although I still apply a lip balm afterwards. The product hasn't caused me any irritations or discomfort. The only sensations that it gives me is a slight tingling after use and a little bit of stickiness.
Other flavours in the sugary lip scrub family including the chocolate Sweet Lips, the minty Mint Julips and the sweet Bubble Gum.
This is a good novelty product which does leave the lips feeling soft, smooth and conditioned. It is fun because it's edible, smells good and tastes good but it can be messy to use and is a little bit expensive for what the product is. I like it nevertheless and I'm sure I'll be first in line the next time that they release another flavour.
Summary: A sugary lip scrub which softens the lips and leaves them feeling smooth
