“ Brand: Sally Hansen / Exfoliator / Type: Lip Exfoliator / Subcategory: Moisturiser / What it does: Moisturizes, Exfoliates, „
I purchased this a few months ago before our local Ethel Austin store closed down (sad isn't it that each month we seem to be 'losing shops - sigh). I'm a great one for rummaging around on shelves and in baskets when I see products being sold for just £1 so I grabbed it quick I can tell you!
It looks almost as attractive as it does in the picture and from first glance just looks like a lipstick. However, when you remove the seal and twist the 'lipstick' is actually a two-toned pink - the darker side being the exfoliator and the lighter pink the lip moisturiser - clever idea I think as it saves buying 2 separate items.
I'd noticed how dry and chapped my lips had become but wasn't sure whether it was the cold weather/ poor diet/cheap lipstick I'd been using. I tried Gatineau's highly expensive lip balm plus vaseline lip cream but I only had a little relief for my poor cracked and dry, flaky lips.
To be honest I'd never heard of lip exfollators never mind use one, so if it had not been just a quid I probably never would have bothered but I'm really glad I did buy and try.
Although it states that it is the dried and bitter orange peel which exfoliated, I did not actually smell or taste this in the product which I was pleased about.
The instructions state you should clean the lips thoroughly then use the exfoliator by using small circular motions and then smoothing the lips together (presumably for deeper penetration?) All you need to do next is gently remove with a tissue.
After doing this I wondered my dry chapped bits of lip skin had gone (presumably in the tissue!)
Next step was to use the paler pink side of the stick to moisturise the lips - all that vitamin E must have worked it's magic because my lips felt soft for the first time in ages. The effect was immediate and each time I've used it I have had the same great results.
My only criticism is that I've loads of moisturiser left but not much exfoliator and I think the product should have at least given 50% of each.
In conclusion though I would have to say that this certainly did the job and if I ever see it again for £1 anywhere I will stock up on it.
I would recommend it to both men and women if lip balms just aren't working for you as the dead skin is quickly and painlessly removed and the moisturiser makes them so much softer.
I am pretty sure I've seen SH products in Superdrug and TK Max but I know they usually sell them on eBay.
It seems that every winter my poor lips get very chapped and feel like they have tatters hanging from them. After dealing with that for years I have been on the search for something anything that will get rid of the little skin flaps that chapped lips seem to cause. I came across this little tube of wonder in my local discount store. I was shocked to see it there to be honest. So I figured I would pick my self up a tube and see if it did what it promised.
The tube its self is nothing special it comes in an oval shaped container that is gold in color. Its not till you open it that you get to see whats inside. The packaging if I remember right claims to make your lips soft and smooth. It contains dried and ground orange peels. The tube of lipstick is divided in half one side is the exfoliator and the other side is the moisturizer. I was not sure how well this would work as I am rather messy when it comes to lipsticks and what not.
I got home and opened it up read the directions they told me to apply the exfoliator first and to rub my lips together for a few seconds to allow for the orange peels to work their magic. After rubbing my lips together it told me to wipe off with a tissue and then to apply the moisturizer. So I wiped it off it seem to take forever to get all the gritty stuff off my lips. I then put on a generous amount of the moisturizer as my lips were very chapped.
A few hours later my husband came home. I knew that kissing him would be the true test of if it worked or not. I kissed him on the cheek and he was very shocked at how soft and smooth my lips were that he had to give me a full on kiss just to feel them again. So after a response like that I would have to say that yes this product works very well. It does just what it says it will do.
After using it for a while I started to notice that the use on the exfoliator side was more than on the moisturizer side. So here I am with out any exfoliator and a ton of moisturizer still left. I still use the moisturizer as it works wonderfully but not as well with out the other half. This is a product that I would happily buy again but I think that a seperate tube for each product would be in order or at least the ability to buy just the exfoliator as I still have a ton of the moisturizer.
All in all this is a great product that really does just what it says it will do.
After reading a few reviews on Dooyoo I have become fascinated with lip exfoliator. I am not sure why I was as fascinated as I have never had any real problems with my lips.
Now as the mother of a toddler my beauty regime is pretty limited so don't often buy many products.
I had decided that I would treat myself to one for my birthday. With a limited budget I searched on EBay and found the Sally Hansen lip exfoliator and moisturiser for £1.99 with free postage so thought I would give it a go.
It came sealed on a card and I did actually read the instructions for once.
The product itself looks like a lipstick in a gold case. The lipstick has two sides a darker side has grains through which is the exfoliator side and then a smooth lighter side which is the moisturiser.
The instructions state to firstly use the exfoliator side wipe off then use the moisturiser. I have done this a couple of times a day for the past couple of days and have found it easy to apply. As you apply the exfoliator side you can feel the granules on the lips but this is very gentle and not uncomfortable. I did find it a little greasy but it soaked in relatively quickly. You can taste the moisturiser on your lips but it doesn't particularly taste of anything and isn't unpleasant. It does have a smell of honey but this isn't very strong.
I have left it on top of the fireplace and get to do it when I sit down for a couple of minutes. My son does want to have it applied to his lips but I let him know his lips are soft enough.
I do feel even though I never considered myself to have problem lips that my lips do feel smoother.
I don't know how effective it would be on someone who does have problems but if you want to improve the softness of your lips and not spend a fortune then this is worth trying.
Although feminine in design I don't see any reason why men who like to take care of there body wouldn't benefit from this item.
I am very happy with the results and should my prince ever come along I am sure he will be impressed with the results.
I am happy to recommend this product
Sally Hansen are known for their products to do with hands and feet and finding solutions tro avariety fo problems. When I saw this I thought I had to try it as I love their nailcare and with the winter months in full swing my lips get really chapped and sore, and can look pretty unattractive.
This comes in an elegant lipstick holder, which is gold metallic and glides up and down easily. The lipbalm is made up both exfoliant and a soft balm. The exfoliant has tiny microbeads which remove dead skin cells on the lips and dry patches whilst at the same time the balm softens lips and makes them feel really soft. There is a slight orangey smell to the lip balm, as it has essential oils in it, which smell quite citrusy.
This is a fantastic lipbalm, as it gets rid of dry skin whilst keeping them moist and looking kissable!
Imagine my horror when one of my favourite Lush products had run out and my nearest Lush store is closed for refurbishment and I am left in need! The product I am talking about is Lush Mint Julips Sugar Scrub which I had become firm friends with during this bout of cold weather. So I had to find something to use as a replacement in the meantime.
From my previous reviews you might remember the name Sally Hansen whose designs a range of beauty products for the hands, feet, body, legs, lips, nails and for men to name a few. Each product is tailored towards a particular problem in the hope of finding a solution and most of the products can be bought on the high street in places like Superdrug and Boots at really good prices. Sally Hansen products can also be bought online through websites such as Amazon which makes the products really easy to find and purchase. So whilst I was doing a bout of shopping I came across the Sally Hansen Lip Exfoliator + Moisturizer which promises to fulfil the name it has been given and that is exfoliate and moisturise the lips. Unusually I found this product in Savers so I am not sure of its real retail price, I paid £2.95 for mine.
I hate chapped, dry and cracked lips which I know is becoming more and more obvious to people. Seriously though I do hate it and there is no need or justification for it to happen because there are plently of lip balms, creams, lotions and scrubs available within high street stores to help treat these problems. I am a big fan of lip scrubs, even thought I am never without a lip balm or cream of some kind, I always seem to find that my lips do dry out and sometimes look a little dry so that I need a treatment. Although I have used plenty of Sally Hansen products in the past, I have never tried this particular one and I decided to give it a go.
To look at this product is best descibed as looking like your average lipstick. It is packaged in a gold coloured case which, like a lip stick has a swivel bottom to allow the person using it to extend the product and use it before carefully twisting it back into its slot and replacing the lid. Once you come to use the product the first thing to notice is that one half of the lipstick shaped design is quite a dark pinky colour and the otherside is a much lighter colour and it has been coloured this way to denote that the darker pink side is in fact the exfoliating side and the other lighter pink side is the moisturising side.
When it comes to using this Lip Exfoliator/moisturising stick one of the first things you need to do is to remove all trace of any lip gloss, lip balm or lipstick which may have applied so that you can then ensure that your lips are as bare as they can possibly be. Then I always clean my lips using water and a relevant facial cloth before applying anything further. Taking the darker side of the lipstick gently rubbing it along your lips, you should feel a slight roughness as it is applied, however once you feel you have applied enough of it to your lips, using your fingers rub your lips in small circles to remove the dead skin cells and any other impurities from your lips and once you have worked your way across your lips, using some slightly damp cotton wool or tissue gently remove any left over product from your lips whilst checking to make sure you haven't missed anything, if you have simply copy the actions you have just done. Then once that process is complete you turn the lipstick over to the lighter pink side and run it along your lips as you would do any other form of lipstick and although it is a light pink colour there is only a slight colour effect to be noticed on the lips, you can apply your usual lipstick over the top without any problems.
When my lips become dry it is always in the same place and that is right in the middle of my top and bottom lip and once I had used this product my lips felt soft and smooth all the way along. So what makes them feel so smooth? There are for me two main ingredients within this product, the first being Bitter orange peel which acts as the exfoliator to remove the dry, dead and flaking skin from your lips and the secondary ingredient Vitamin E which helps to take good care of your skin and plays a role in the anti-aging process that many of us (well me) have become concerned with. Not only that but Vitamin E is an antioxidant, a word which seems to be bounded around rather a lot these days and an antioxidant basically helps to protect skin cells from things such as ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements which may be harmful. So with
Overall I was very impressed with this Sally Hansen lip exfoliator and moisturiser combined because it was really easy to use, it did what it told you it would do and although there wasn't an over-riding smell that I could detect, it did leave my lips feeling very soft and moisturised. The only downside for me was the missing smell that I get with both Mint Julips and Sweet Lips from Lush but on the whole it is a great product and it has served me well in the absence of my Lush products and I use it one or twice a week and having owned it for approximately 4 weeks now, it has more than half the stick left, so it does have a good lasting ability. So I do recommend it because it is a good product but it needs to have a nice smell to it for it to get a better score from me.
Great after you have been out in the cold or the wind / The combination of orange peel and vitamin E gently exfoliate dry, rough skin and soothe your lips all in the same stroke /
