Tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub ($16) is a new twist-up lip pencil that exfoliates dry, crack lips without the mess! I always think of those old lipstick lip scrubs when I see treatments like this, kind of something my grandmother might have used on her lips!
I’ve actually never been a fan of them but Tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub changed my mind!
Tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub (0.10 oz) is a new chubby twist-up lip scrub. The packaging will be fairly familiar to users of Tarte’s Lipsurgence Lip Pencils as this is exactly like those pencils. As I said above, I’m actually one that avoids lipstick exfoliators. They kind of remind me of 1960’s makeup and seem terribly harsh. But I actually loved Tarte’s formula.
This little guy is created with a blend of shea butter and fine raw sugar. Just gentle swipe it on your lips to scrub away dry, dead skin from your lips and wipe it off. It’s quite grainy so if you’re sensitive be gentle. I personally have drier lips that are typically chapped in the Winter so, I actually prefer a more harsher scrub for them. This fits the bill perfectly. I like using it as a prep for lipstick application as it exfoliates away dryness which gives me a smoother finish. Plus it takes next to no time to use it, just swipe it on, tissue it off, and you’re left with smooth lips. It’s also perfectly portable if you want to carry it around and prep with it prior to touching up your matte lipstick because we all know mattes need as smooth a surface as possible to look good!
It’s very tempting to eat or lick off. It’s a tasty sweet mint flavor!
If you’re prone to dry lips the Tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub is fantastic for buffing away dryness to reveal smooth, kissable lips!
