Whenever I walk into a Lush store, I’m overwhelmed with excitement! Although, I will be the first one to admit that I didn’t know much about Lush until a friend urged me to go and check out their soaps. Once I went inside, I was intrigued with everything these natural/handmade/organic products had to offer. This particular product had been on my list to try out and boy am I glad I did.
What is it: This is a handmade lip scrub. I picked up the Honey flavour because it smelled oh so yummy. This pot is filled with castor sugar crystals mixed in with honey, white chocolate (yes you read that right), vanilla and jojoba oil as well as tingly mint. It’s meant to flake all the dead & dry skin off your lips while leaving them super soft and smooth.
How it works: This isn’t just your average lip scrub. Nope. Not at all. It’s edible. Seriously. I mean you can’t eat it in spoonfuls but you can def lick the excess off your lips (it says so on the bottle, I’m not making this up). This is probably because all the products used in this are natural. With a Q-tip (you can use your fingers too), I take a pea size amount and apply it to my lips. Depending on the severity of my lips (winter is brutal), I either use the Q tip or my lips to spread the sugar crystals around to “flake” off the dead skin. The best thing about this product is there’s no need to rinse…you just lick your lips off (LOL)….or you can apply lip balm after…whatever floats your boat.
The Good: I love the size of this product. You get so much in a tiny pot and you don’t even need to use a lot of the product. The texture of this product is pretty good. The sugar crystals don’t melt upon touch and stays in tact on your lips until you begin to “scrub”. It’s super gentle, which is a HUGE plus point especially for sensitive lips. It’s really easy to work with and there’s no fallout. Although the product is edible, I haven’t tried to eat it nor have I licked it despite it smelling oh so good! The scrub did what it said it would do, which is good!
The Bad: With everything being said…unfortunately, this wasn’t like a life changing product for my lips. It’s nice, don’t get me wrong, but I felt like it was pretty average. After I took off the lip scrub, my lips weren’t over the top moisturized and I definitely had to apply lip balm…but that was literally the only downside to it. Nonetheless, this isn’t a horrible product at all. The price of this is $10.95(CDN) and you can pick it up at any Lush store or online.
