LUSH | Mint Julips Lip Scrub


We all know the feeling - dry, flaky lips that physically hurt when you smile, especially in the winter. The usual, temporary remedy... some Carmex lip balm on the go.  While Carmex does make your lips feel baby soft, it doesn't seem to remove the dead skin that forms when your lips are chapped. 

The look isn't particularly attractive when you're wearing your favourite matte red lipstick (FYI, it's MAC Retro Matte: All Fired Up) where your lips look like they would look better on Frankenstein instead. There is nothing worse than dry lips preventing you from rocking your matte lipstick which as we all know lasts a heck of a lot longer than normal, glossier lipsticks. But alas there is a cure! Or at least a temporary, more affordable one. 

The LUSH Lip Scrub is the perfect on the go remedy for lips that need a bit of rejuvenating.

My favourite of the collection is Mint Julips, the other flavours are Popcorn and Bubblegum. With a consistency akin to wet sand, it is perfect for gently exfoliating your lips while not too harsh on an already sensitive part of your face.

I usually dip my finger in once, making sure to get a decent amount of product (about a pea-size) and then rub my make-up free lips with the same finger until it feels baby soft and flake-free, ready for some lippy. You can then either wipe away the scrub or lick your lips together - sounds disgusting I know, but I assure you according to LUSH the scrub is edible. 

At £5.50 its not exactly affordable, at the end of the day it is just a lip scrub but considering that Lush always make wonderful products, its a no brainer. Contained in a glass jar it may seem quite fragile however I have had no problems with it whatsoever and I'm very accident prone. The product is inside a jar so not the most hygenic of packaging however it only takes a tiny amount of product to get smooth results. I highly recommend this, it is a must-have for your make-up bag.
