:: Minty Fresh Lips ::

:: Minty Fresh Lips ::


Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas.  Over the next few weeks I will do some posts on the gifts I got but today i'm going to to a review on a product I bought recently.

As I mentioned in an earlier post I have been suffering with dry lips lately. That's why, when I was in Lush a couple of weeks ago the product which caught my eye was their lip scrubs.

 
 


Four different flavours are available; Mint Chocolate Chip, Bubblegum, Sweet (which is chocolate) and Popcorn.  I love the colour of the Bubblegum one as it is bright pink but the Mint one smells so fresh that's the one I decided to go for in the end.

The size of the pot is perfect for me, I can easily pop it in my makeup bag or handbag and find it easily so you can take with you want to. Personally, I haven't felt the need to use this product more than once a day which I do in the morning before I apply my lipstick/gloss. 

The Mint Julips lip scrub smells gorgeous.  As soon as you take the lid off it smells just like After Eights.  It really does tempt you to eat it!!  The colour is also pretty inviting, its a very pale golden colour which sparkles a little when the sugar crystals catch the light.

A downside is that this product is very dry so it's pretty hard to get out of the pot without it going everywhere so you have to be careful when using it but it really is worth it.   The pot is full to the brim with the lip exfoliator and as you only need to use a tiny bit at a time you you definitely get your money's worth. 

You use this product by gently rubbing a little over your lips. Afterwards you can either wipe it off (I use a wipe) or eat it.  I prefer not to eat it as the purpose of the product is to remove dead skin etc and the thought of then knowingly eating it grosses me out!

Immediately after using this product you'll notice a difference in your lips - Mine are sooo silky smooth! It's great because it really primes your lips for your lipstick application.

I really love that Lush products are all handmade and animal friendly.  It makes them feel luxurious when you use them.  This particular product is definitely one which will be a permanent item in my makeup bag!

If you want to pick up one of these amazing lip scrubs you can get them at Lush for £5.25.

Has anyone else tried these Lush Lip scrubs?

  6. Great review! I have the bubblegum one, and I thought that coz mine was a little bit older (must.throw.out.) that was why it was so hard to get out, glad to hear I'm not the only one! I will probably try the mint one next time. xx

    1. Ah that's good then! It's pretty much just sugar so I guess they must last quite a while. It's always better to be safe than sorry though so may just be better to get a new one. Legmen of what you think of the mint one!

  9. Hi Kimberly, Thanks for coming by my blog and following! I have not tried those Lush lip scrubs. I have yet to try anything Lush besides the kids bath items. Lucky them, they got to try out the products before I did. I've seen those in stores and really wanted to try it out. Minty ones are my favorite as well! Great post!
