This is a quick fix for the pure fact I’m sitting on a train that’s currently heading to Leeds! Obviously I’ll be getting off at Sheffield though! I gotta say I’ve had a pretty amazing week in Bristol staying with my boyfriend and his family! Anyway… Yesterday we were out shopping and i popped into Lush! Having heard so many things about their Lip Scrubs i thought i would pick one up!
I opted for the Bubblegum Lip Scrub which smells AMAZING! I’ve always loved the smell of bubblegum though! The product is 25g which i think is a reasonable size and it retails around £5.50! It comes in a pretty standard tub, but in all honesty I’m not all that excited about this product as i was before i bought it!
First thoughts were ‘It smells amazing’ (I even put it on and kissed my boyfriend so he could taste!) but that is when i realized that it wasn’t anything what i expected! This to me just feels like sugar on my lips and recently I have had quite dry lips! I read on the Lush website prior to buying this ‘Just apply with a clean finger, and let the exfoliating caster sugar and softening jojoba oil scrub away dead skin and infuse moisture to rejuvenate your smile.’ This is the part i was most disappointed with as it didn’t scrub away any dead skin no matter how much i scrubbed. (I actually hurt my lips i scrubbed so much and made them feel numb! and i still had dry lips after).
I can say i won’t be buying this again which is a shame because it has had such great reviews from other people! Maybe I’m using it wrong or it just doesn’t suit my lips? Has anyone seen a similar product that the recommend i try?
