Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub Review

Lush Santa Lip Scrub

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub makes a return for a limited time with the Lush Christmas/Holiday 2014 Collection.

This delicious cola flavored lip scrub is soooo tasty and has tiny little edible red hearts in the mix! Hmm better for Valentine’s Day me thinks? But needless to say perfect for Winter when my lips are at their driest.

Lush Santa Lip Scrub Holiday 2014

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub comes housed in a glass jar and has a light effervescent cola taste! This is made with chunky caster sugar and can be used to exfoliate drier lips. Simply take a small amount out of the jar using your finger and gently scrub your lips. You can wipe off the excess or lick it off should you want as it’s tasty and edible! It does have a little but of a cherry cola taste and that would be because it does in fact contain cherries and dates!

I don’t actually like Lush Lip Scrubs unless I add extra oil to them because they are very chunky and dry so they have a tendency to fall off in chunks as I scrub. It’s a messy way to exfoliate your lips as there isn’t really a base holding the scrub together. You can redeem this by mixing a little of the scrub with Rosebud Salve or a little Vaseline however, you don’t want to consume either of those products so scrubbing and wiping off excess is highly recommended. You can also get a little coconut oil and add it to the scrub to loosen it up further!

The formula actually works great at exfoliating lips and giving them an extra soft feel but the chunks flying around are bothersome and messy so I look for ways to improve the formula and in most cases end up mixing the scrub with something else.

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub is ideal for getting dry, crack lips nice and soft with a very tasty flavor but he is a little messy to use so I do suggest using him along with another lip product to make for less clean up!

Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub is available now at Lush Boutiques or online at

    Aww, this scrub looks cute, too bad there are problems with it. I always get revolted when licking off the excess scrub is suggested..that is bas I cally eating all the gross, flakey skin that you just scrubbed off! Ugh, no thanks.

    This stuff stains my finger red–and if I’m not careful, it’ll stain the skin around my lips as well. Not a good look.

  • Kiss & Make-up

    O_O It looks SO different from mine. Less liquid. And a darker red.

    Ahhh!!! You just made my day!! When I saw your post talking about their holiday stuff and I didn’t see this, I thought they weren’t going to have it this year! I love Lush scrubs, but this one is definitely my favorite because of the great red stain and the yummy scent/flavor. ๐Ÿ™‚ I never had any trouble with anything but the top layer being a little dry/crumbly! Someone said something about this staining the area around their lips, but I never had issues with that either. It will, of course, stain your finger, but as long as you don’t scrub outside the area of your lip, it shouldn’t stain anywhere else!
    One other thing I want to point out: for those that see the little hearts and are turned off by the idea of those random big pieces in their scrub…those are only on the top layer (unless they added more this year)! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Isabella Muse

      aw glad to hear it ๐Ÿ˜€ I didn’t either, no staining problems at all! surprised to hear it. I dug a little and there seem to be a few more under the top layer!

    I was really excited to get this last year because I love Lush’s lip scrubs but it really let me down. It doesn’t taste anything like cola to me, but I can’t really pinpoint what the flavor is. It’s not bad but it wasn’t my favorite either. Plus it stained my finger and sink when I used it so I’d always have to be careful to rinse it down the drain quickly and then wipe up the excess. It took me several months but I did finally use it all up. Since then I’ve decided to stick to my beloved bubblegum lip scrub from them instead. I was hoping they would bring out a different LE flavor this holiday season but oh well!

    • Isabella Muse

      I def get cola but also a little cherry so it kinda tastes like cherry cola to me. I can’t believe it, I honestly didn’t have an issue with staining I’m shocked! I’m so sorry to hear it!

  • SusanT

    Hey, Muse! Oooh, there’s nothing I love more than Lush, and nothing I love more than cherry cola, so this is a must for me. They’re opening a new Lush store by me so I’ll have to stop in and pick this up. By the way, little Miss Daisy is sending you kitty kissies. Hoping your furry babies are doing well!

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thank you susan ๐Ÿ™‚ they are fab! give daisy a kiss and a hug from me ๐Ÿ˜€ Def get a hold of the Holiday goodies, they are great (but aren’t they always?!)

    After I got this in my emails the other day I went and bought one. I love cherry cola. I got it yesterday and used it twice because winter sucks and my lips were already feeling it lol. I love it! Glad I bought it. My bottom lip is now smooth as glass which I never get. It didn’t even bother me that the formula was a little dry. Thanks for the review! I have never gotten anything from lush. I won’t be licking it off my lips though. That just doesn’t seem right to me!

    Love!!! Love!!! Love!!! I wish they had them in store right now!! Mines Almost Out! Hopefully next Winter they have it again!!
