In my opinion it's effective if you want to remove dead skin from your lips. And it tastes fantastic! But sadly the oil doesn't stay long on your lips, especially because you automatically want to eat that sugar from your lips ^^''' Even if you try to remove the sugar gently with your fingers, you always also remove some of the oil. So I think if you want really soft lips who stay soft for a longer time, you should better use a regular lip balm. But if you need some peeling for your lips you can use this product.
I'm obsessed with this Lip Scrub! I tried to hold off on buying by using my own sugar and olive oil but it doesn't come close. I finally gave in and spent $9 on this scrub but I don't regret it at all. It works great to remove flakiness on lips and leaves them moisturized after. It smells really good but I could go without the chocolate. Just mint would be better to me. You can lick it off afterwards but I think that's a little gross (You're eating your dry skin flakes!). I'm going to repurchase this when I run out and I'm thinking about getting it for family members for Christmas! Lush has been winning recently in my book!
I love this lip scrub so much! I've always had a problem with dry,chapped lips that are always peeling but every time I use it, it makes all the gunk on my lips dissapear.
And then when you're done scrubbing, you simply just lick it off! It really does smell and taste of mint chocolates or to me, after eights
It is quite expensive (£5.25) for what is essentially a pot of flavoured sugar and oil but its gonna last me for ages! I use this up to 3 times a day and have owned this for well over a month now and barely made a dent in it. Its not at all messy either which is a plus
Overall, I think this is absolutely amazing and wouldnt be without it now but cant belive I didnt get this sooner! Would without a doubt repurchase :)
I absolutely love LUSH's lip scrubs, and they will continue to be a part of my staples.
Here are my reasons for five lippies:
-The scrub is very efficient, works amazing to exfoliate and rid my lips of any dead skin, residue or lip product build-up.
-The smell of Mint Julips is just like junior mints or York peppermint patties, which I love.
-It's edible! Or not, if you're not in the mood
-It comes in a convenient but high-quality glass jar
I personally think I like the bubble gum flavor better, since sometimes I'm just not in the mood to taste this one.
I love this lip scrub! I am or rather was having a problem with my lips getting really chapped and peeling. This scrub really helped me get that under control, love it! I don't think its all that costly considering it does take much at least for me I just dip my finger in it and then scrub my lips, I don't scoop it.
OMG, this is the best lip scrub I've ever tried! It's so finely milled, but it's still rough enough to sluff off your dead skin. It leaves my lips super smooth and kissable, and the abraisivness kind of plumps them(:
AND IT TASTES LIKE THIN MINTS! OMG THIS IS ACTUALLY DELICIOUS! Whenever I'm done scrubbing my lips, I lick it off! Anyone know how many calories this is? :p
On the downside, the smoothness doesn't last super long if you don't seal it with a lip balm. Since the scrub is kind of dry, you REALLY need to moisturize after if you want it to stay that way for a while
Overall, I loveloveloveeee this product and so does my man ;)
This lip scrub is great for dried lips in the winter, but I really don't think it does that much for them. It's also easy to scrub your lips too much and produce more dried skin than you started with!
Love this product! It is wonderful for ladies who wear lipstick on a daily basis. My lips are kind of normal, I think... But, as with normal lips, dead skin builds up on them through out the day. Even with a ton of lip balm, nothing can make your lipstick go on smoothly without removing the build up (ugh gross, I know). I agree, this product can do exactly what a washcloth does . . . But, I am not one to carry around a washcloth and rub my lips through out the day. This product is edible, so you can scrub it on after lunch, lick it off, and apply fresh lip products no problem. I would not consider this to be a moisturising product per se, tho it is very gentle and does not leave my lips feeling even close to dry, but I always apply my favorite balm, then lipstick after using this. My only qualm is the packaging, I am not a fan of the glass jar. I'd rather have something lighter, and more likely to survive a fall than glass.
I wish i could buy this roduct in a lipstick form, because otherwise I refuse to use this product without washing my hands first. I can't count how many times this lip scrub saved my makeup. It is a basic that eveyrone should have in a makeup stash, because what looks more bad than a lipstick applied over chapped lips? Plus, the taste is wonderful, just a like an After Eight chocolate bar. The only downside is the price. Sigh...
This is a very nice product because its taste and smell is absolutley devine! It does the job most of the time and doesnt leave my lips feeling sore or irritated. The oils in this product leave the lips feeling moisterised and cared for. The application can sometimes be rather difficult but yousoon get the gist of it. The price is a little steep, but is usually worth it.
