I'm a massive fan of everything lipbalm-ish. I carry around 13 with my in my school bag on a daily basis (sad thing is, I'm not joking) because I hate the feeling when my lips don't have some sort of balm on them. I was shopping in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago and fancied a wee peek in Lush. I must admit I rarely shop there, I'm dead tight on wonga at the moment and I need to pay for driving lessons, as well as clothe myself, so as much as I'd like to spend money on bath bombs and face masks, I just can't.
However (and it's a big however seeing as you can make a similar thing yourself from sugar and oil) this was placed on a stand near the door, and I couldn't resist it! It was £5, which in the heat of the moment seemed like an excellent price for what is essentially sugar and flavouring in a pot.. Looking back the price was maybe a bit steep but what can I say, I'm a sucker for anything that will make my lips look nice!
I really like the packaging for this product. It comes in a small glass pot, which makes the whole thing seem more substantial and worth the £5 price tag. You get 25g of product, so it will last a while. I'm not sure of the preferred regime for this product, but I've been using is every second day, followed by a load of Blistex intensive moisture, which is amazing! I do it at night, simply because the Blistex can leave you with ghostly looking lips, but that's just because it's so thick and incredibly moisturising, so I can't complain!
As you can see, the colour is a bright vivid pink, which is immediately eye catching and I think makes the scrub more exciting to use! In terms of how well the product actually works, I can say that I have noticed a difference in how soft my lips are after using this scrub. However, even though I apply moisturiser straight away, it doesn't provide a lasting difference to my lips. I'm glad that I picked this up, because I would have always wondered about it, but I can't see myself buying this again.. Sorry lush!
Have you tried this, or a similar product? What did you think? Hope you have a great weekend!
