Lush Lip Scrubs Review: Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub Review and Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub Review
I admit, from time to time, I have joked about drinking a bottle of Lush Snow Fairy. Seriously, it’s terribly addicting stuff isn’t it? Don’t you want to kick and scream because it’s only available once a year? Why, Lush, Why?! Damnit we need our Snow Fairy year round! Why limit it to the Holidays? It’s just so terribly cruel!
As I said, I do admit a time or time I’ve been tempted to take a slug of my bottle. It just smells so sweet and fruity and gorgeous who wouldn’t be enticed to take a little sip. But, even as a beauty junkie, I draw the line at chugging back shower gel.
Now I can actually eat my Snow Fairy if I want, the new Lush Lip Scrubs make it possible.
Yes, well, kids I wouldn’t try sipping Snow Fairy from the bottle but I don’t have any problems licking it off my lips when it’s combined with sugar. And that’s just the case with the new Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub is scented with Snow Fairy shower gel but no worries it won’t taste like soap or shower gel , believe me I was worried about that. It actually tastes like Snow Fairy smells which is interesting. It’s fruity, slightly sweet, with a tiny hint of bubble gum. Now you can go around digging through the glass jar and just eating it if you want, no worries, it doesn’t have any harmful ingredients, however it’s not meant to be enjoyed as a snack, no matter how tasty it smells. It is however for rubbing on your dry, cracked lips to make them smooth and supple again!
Lush Lip Scrubs come in a heavy glass jar and are a vegan friendly lip exfoliator made from castor sugar. They contain jojoba oil as well however for the most part they are made up of a heavy dose of larger grains of sugar. Most lip scrubs I’ve had the pleasure of trying are either oily or more of a paste however Lush’s version is very much a sugary exfoliator. The formula could prove a little messy to deal with since it falls off your lips in crumbs and clumps however you might want to try applying a little Rosebud Salve prior to scrubbing so the sugar has more of a base to adhere to. I didn’t mind the “crummy” formula at all as it felt like it exfoliated my lips quite well and made them extra soft after use however the tiny pieces falling here and there could be bothersome to some.
The scrubs are available in three flavors. I tried the Bubblegum version which is scented and tastes like Lush Snow Fairy and I also tried the Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub. Mint Julips tastes exactly of mint and vanilla, very sweet, cool, and refreshing.
Overall, the scrubs are ideal for getting tired, dry lips back in shape. I love the tasty formula and like how well they exfoliate dry, dead skin off my lips, particularly when my lips are chapped. As I mentioned above they are slightly messy to work with but I don’t mind in the least. The scrubs are a tasty little treat that are vegan friendly and pure bliss for my lips.
Available now from Lush UK (ships worldwide) for £4.50 each ($7).
