Milani Keep It Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub ($10) launched a few months ago but I never got a chance to try it. For some reason, I couldn’t find it at any drugstores but recently it started popping up everywhere I went. Finally I can share my thoughts with you.
I’m a bit of a lip scrub junkie. They are just so damn handy to have around. I typically use them in the evening prior to bad and slather on something moisturizing to sleep in so my lips are nice and smooth in the AM. I also use them in the morning if I’m using a super pigmented lipstick or a drier formula I know will look less than smooth. Lip scrubs are just one of those handy tools that make anything look good on my chronically dry lips.
Keep It Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub tastes like yummy vanilla frosting and uses natural sugar granules to scrub away flakiness. The formula is soft, easy to smooth on lips, and doesn’t fall away in chunks the way like Wet n Wild’s new Perfect Pout Lip Scrub does. It’s my ideal texture for a lip scrub as it has some nice hydrating oils in it like almond, olive, and coconut to add moisture but isn’t overly greasy or oil plus the sugar is refined and easy enough to smooth on and wipe away (although you might be tempted to just lick it off!).
Milani also has a Keep It Smooth Luxe Lip Treatment which can be used after the scrub to add hydration.
Considering how often Milani is on sale at the drugstores you’ll never to pay full price either.
Do try this one!
