Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub
Advantages: Smells and tastes wonderful, leaves lips in great condition and super soft and smooth
I was in Lush a few weeks ago buying some presents for my nieces and some friends and of course I decided to treat myself to some things at the same time. One of the things that I treated myself to was some new lip scrubs. I was really looking forward to trying the popcorn one as it was one of the few lip scrubs in Lush that I hadn't previously tried.
I think that I might have become addicted to lip balm as my lips become so dry and chapped without it and with the cold weather and central heating I need to take better care of them in the winter. This year they seem to have become even drier so I was looking forward to trying out this scrub and getting them looking their best for the festive season.
Popcorn lip scrub costs £5.25 for a 25g pot and for me it was worth every penny as it works exactly as it is supposed to and left my lips looking and feeling in tip top condition. The scrub contains caster sugar, jojoba oil, sea salt, polenta, coconut oil and popping candy. It was the popping candy that originally caught my eye as it is such an unusual ingredient to find in a beauty product.
You use this scrub on your lips just as you would with any sort of exfoliator in small circular movements. It is easy to apply as the scrub has a thick consistency and I found it easy to get some on to my finger and then use the circular movements to scrub my lips and remove any flakes of dry skin that I had.
I thought this was fantastic. I am usually a big fan of all things Lush but this has leaped straight to the top of the list of Lush products that I particularly like.
It tastes lovely and has a wonderful aroma of coconut and sweetness. The taste is a little weird as it is both salty and sweet at the same time but it is really delicious and I had to make sure not to just like it off my lips when I was using it.
It worked amazingly well. I thought my lips were already in pretty good condition but this left them looking and feeling even better. It is just rough enough that it removes all traces of dry flakes of skin but it isn't so rough that it hurts to use. The oils in the scrub left my lips really moisturised and looking soft and sleek. My lips were left slightly tingling after using this which was a slightly weird but also a quite nice sensation and the condition of my lips was improved loads. The day I used it I was going to a works night out afterwards and my lipstick went on so much better than it usually does and it didn't make my lips look or feel as dry as normal and the scrub just made them perfectly prepped for putting on lipstick.
You might only get a little pot with this scrub but like all the other lip scrubs from Lush it will last you for ages before you need to buy a new one. I have already used mine quite a few times but I still have loads of it left and I imagine I won't need to buy a new one again for a few weeks as you only need such a tiny amount for it to do its job and make your lips feel and look sensational.
