I love popping into the Lush store whilst shopping in Cardiff. I mostly marvel at the shower jelly & bath melts but Saturday I picked up this gorgeous smelling lip scrub. My lips are forever dry & I was getting fed up of my lips looking flakey underneath lipstick. This product is definitely an effective quick fix if any of you suffer with the same problem! Lush describes this product as follows;

'Our fabulous lip scrubs are here to keep your kissers sweet. This one will make your lips smell like our best-selling Snow Fairy shower gel. Bubblegum is made with exfoliating castor sugar and our delicious vegan flavour to gently scrub away rough skin, keeping your lips smooth and kissably soft. Simply rub it over your lips when they're feeling the need for some sugar.'

First things first, this product truly works! I've been using it a few times a day since I bought it & my lips are chap free & even a little plumped from the exfoliating! It's super easy to use (you simply rub it into your lips) however it isn't something I'd personally use in public as it's a little messy. You definitely need to apply with a mirror to make sure that you don't have any sugar left on your face, but if you do you can simply lick it off! If you look at the ingredients (Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil & Flavouring) you realise that it may not be worth the £4.95 price tag but I don't begrudge spending that much on it at all! Overall; smell/taste = delicious, price = worth it & does it work = amazingly! Have any of you tried the Lush lip scrubs?...


  1. I have this and I love it, it tastes so nice! :) X

  2. thank you soo much for this post, i suffer "dry-lip syndrome" and was wandering whether lip exfoliators actually do the job. Especially annoying having flakey lips (yum) in summer time. I will have to pop on down to lush and give this a test run :)

    One question... do you rinse it off with water or can it simply be wiped away?

  3. Best tasting thing ever!ha xx

    Oh a fellow sufferer! Not the best look is it! I highly recommend it, I don't think my lips have ever look this healthy! I would say wiped away. I've cut down on applying it every five minutes because I like the taste so much & just do it before I apply my make-up in the mornings & before I moisturise at night! It isn't at all sticky so the excess sugar can be simply wiped away or licked off! Hope this helps(:xx

  4. I love this, I'm going out and buying some ASAP!xoxo
