I'm back again and very promptly too, it must be something in the air.
I recently purchased one of the LUSH lip scrubs as it was a product that just everyone and their mother was talking about. I honestly have enough lip balms/products to last me and absolute lifetime so I don't know why I was so desperate to get my mitts on the popular LUSH product but alas I bought it out of total curiosity.
I spent a good while in the shop trying to decide between the different flavours, Bubblegum, Popcorn and Mint Julips. I adore anything Mint so Mint Julips was the one for me. I never really understood the use in lip scrubs as they seem slightly harsh for such a sensitive part of the face but I can admit I was a little bit extreme in my expectations and the LUSH products are not rough in the slightest and do leave your lips feeling soft for a little while.
However, as lovely as the scent is and the fun concept of rubbing the scrub onto your lips and licking it off (it's so tasty I almost ate the entire tub), I feel as though my money has been wasted just a bit on a pot of what is essentially mint-flavoured sugar. Of course, if the product is made for lips it has to in some way have natural ingredients but for £5.50 a tub I maybe expect just a little more.
The product does do it's job by removing dead skin cells on the lips and I usually apply it before lipstick so my lips don't go all nasty in the corners (you know what I mean). Although, I do have to admit I don't think I will be purchasing another LUSH lip scrub in the future.

Do you use LUSH lip scrubs? What do you think of them?
Thanks again m'dears,
