Oh my god, Bath and Body Works 2-in-1 Liplicious Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub couldn’t come at a better time!
This week we are back to having nice, calm October weather but last week we had some sincerely cold weather which means major chapped lips for the Muse!
Don’t get me wrong I love a brisk Winter day but I DON’T love the chapped lips that come with it. Ugh agonizing!
Sadly, once I get a case of chapped lips I start looking like this kid! I’ve labeled this look the Kool-Aid smile! Remember when you were a kid and had a large glass of cherry kool-aide and came away lookin’ like you were Bozo the Clown?
Yeah, well, keep that mental image and multiply it by ten and you’ll get what the Muse looks like with chapped lips!
Although I was suffering hard with my chapped lips last week my pain wasn’t too bad after I slathered myself with Rosebud Salve! Considering that Rosebud Salve is the solution to Life, the Universe, and Everything, the Muse knows to have tons of it on hand when the cold weather sets in!
However, sadly, Rosebud Salve does moisturize and does heal chapped lips but it doesn’t do much for flaky dry skin left behind by chapped lips!
So lucky me that my Bath and Body Works 2-in-1 Liplicious came in the mail just when my chapped lips were clearing up! One end has a pigmented moisturizing lip color and the other end has a solid scrub to rub off those gross flakes and bring lips back into the realm of normal! I tried mine out Pomegranate/Brown Sugar Scrub but if you’re not loving the sound of that you can nab one in Coconut Truffle or Candied Apple!
It’s suggested that once you buff the Brown Sugar Scrub onto lips you can lick it off and although it’s very pleasant tasting the Muse didn’t want to “eat” it so she smoothed it on and tissued it off with a facial tissue. I actually really dug this considering that I’m normally really scared of scrubby lipsticks like this one. However, the formula is so gentle and buttery smooth that it makes application a snap and it does a rather fab job of exfoliating lips! The only disappointing aspect is the fact that the scrub doesn’t last all that long and only a little bit is in each tube. Since it’s such a melting formula almost as soon as you scrub it on half of the tube is gone! Sad sigh! Aside from that minor rant I actually loved the feeling and what a great job it did get my lips back in tip top shape!
After getting my lips nice and smooth I can flip to the other side of the tube and apply the pigmented, glossy lip color that tastes like Pomegranate! I loved the formula on this as well! It’s glossy, moisturizing, and adds a nice little pop of color to lips!
All in all I think these are rather handy little items! The price is $12 USD each which I think is a bit too high however it is buy 2 get 1 free which breaks the cost down to $8 USD each. $8 USD is a much fairer price than $12 USD in the Muse’s humblest opinion!
If you’d like a nifty little way to keep your lips nice and smooth while adding a nice moisturizing lip color into the mix of things I suggest checking these out! The Muse liked ’em! Next on my list to try would be the coconut!
