LUSH Lip Scrub

If you don't know what a lip scrub is, it's essentially a sugar based lip balm exfoliant designed to remove dry skin cells from your lips. I've been making my own out of vaseline and sugar for years but it's never really been perfect. When I received an email update about the newest Lush products, as soon as I saw 'Lip Scrub' I was already sold.

If you're unfamiliar with the Lush brand, they are an all natural, all organic skin and body care brand based out of Canada but sold all around the world.

The lip scrub is essentially just sugar and jojoba oil, with a little added flavour, colour and scent.
It's nothing you couldn't whip up yourself at home, but it's just so practical and convenient to buy.

The scrub comes in three scents/flavours, Bubblegum (which smells like Snow Fairy), Mint Julips (which is, of course, mint) and Sweet Lips (chocolate scented). Being a reformed Snow Fairy addict, I fell off the wagon and went straight for Bubblegum.

I love this product. I use it every morning as part of my skin care routine. The jojoba oil nourishes my lips while the sugar exfoliates so I don't end up with dry, raw lips.

$9.95 gets you 25g. I've had mine for about two months with daily use and i've only used maybe 10% of the product.

The only down side of the product is that there is probably a little too much sugar and not enough oil, resulting in the product being harder to pick up and there is a lot that falls straight into the sink (or if you're like me and use it at a vanity, straight down your top).

The good by far outweighs the bad though and I will continue buying the product.
