So - it is official - I am a Lush virgin no more and here's the little blighter responsible... Lush Lip Scrub in Popcorn...
Although I never stint on lip balm (it's a bit of an obsession) I've always been prone to those little dry areas on my lips which I end up biting and making worse (I am a 'lip-biter' not a 'nail-biter') - you know what I mean? Thought it was about time I started a bit more maintenance with the cold weather and all...so off I went to my local Lush store...
There were several flavours to choose from - Bubblegum (speaks for itself!), Mint Julips (minty chocolate), Sweet Lips (straight chocolate!) and Popcorn (sweet and salty). So after several minutes of indecision I went for the Popcorn (love popcorn at the best of times!).
The scrub is a luscious concoction designed to rid you of those pesky flaky bits! You buff it into your lips (obviously) to gently exfoliate and then remove either by wiping or licking off! Just for the record I'm a wiper not a licker! Leaves lips smoothed and ready to balm on! I've been using this about 2-3 times a week and can already tell a difference.
Lush Lip Scrubs cost £5.25/25g pot and could be deemed a trifle expensive for what is - essentially a small pot of sugary stuff. I imagine some of us could concoct something similar from a few ingredients lying around the house but knowing me - I'd never get round to it - so for convenience sake the pot is worth it to me, plus it's going to last for ages.
Should you feel your lips (young or old) are worth such treat you can check out the full range of Lip Scrubs and Balms at Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics right here. I'll warn you though - the page looks addictive!
Have you had a good scrub this Winter?
