First of all, I must thank MUA for introducing me to this little gem which is absolutely brilliant at its job.
I bought this off the ELF Australia site where the price was hiked up to $6; I bought 6 (you heard right, I bought SIX!) and it was all 'sold out' after that. Anyway I digress. The product is housed in a sexy black matte tube which oozes sophistication and makes it look a lot more expensive that it is. The product smells very pleasant and the sugar particle sizes are just right and not coarse like my failed DIY lip scrub. However as many other people have stated, there's a lot of lip balm at the top so after the first few use, you should be able to experience the sugar on your lips. The product exfoliates very well and is so gentle! I use it every 2-3 days because I wear lipstick and it dries out my lips. I find the product is a bit 'wobbly' so don't twist too much.
I think I can honestly say that this is my favorite elf purchase. I only use this when my lips are feeling extra chapped and it works amazing! My lips feel super soft and the packaging is very convenient which is another plus. I'll definitely repurchase (:
Excellent exfoliator! I wear a bright lip stain that dries my lips and highlights imperfections. Using a balm keeps them soft but exfoliation is a must for smooth lips. This product does both jobs. As someone mentioned, it breaks easily so be careful or you'll be applying it with your fingers (which works just fine, btw). Still does the job though and the easy breaking is the only reason I marked it down one lippy.
I am in love with this lip treatment! It tastes super sweet and exfoliates away all the dead skin on my lips, which I have a lot. I use my EOS lip balm or my Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm after exfoliating and that gives me great results. This is a staple in my makeup bag and I wish I bought more! Definitely worth the $3.00 I paid for it!! :)
This has become my new obsession. It is amazing! I can't believe I was about to spend $20 on a lip exfoliator when this is only $3 and probably works just as great. I was getting fed up of having cracked lips after I applied matte lipsticks and all I can say now is HELLO MATTE LIP PRODUCTS!! It smells great like coffee/maple I follow the instructions on the packaging and I have no complications all day. You have to try this
Holy grail product! I use it every time I wear any kind of lip product. It's cheap, doesn't taste bad, and it's gentle enough to use every day. The only thing is it gets kind of dull and smooth after you use it alot, but that can be taken care of by just rubbing your thumb on it until some sugar comes off and you can feel that it's a rough again. I put on Burt's bees mango lip balm after using this product to moisturize, and it works like a charm (:
This does exactly what it's supposed to do - it exfoliates so well, as a lip scrub in lipstick form. Just swipe this over your lips and you will be rid of flakes. (You will hurt your lips if you press too hard though; just use with a light hand!) The price is awesome, too - $3. As someone said before me, you can use the side as a regular lip balm. This stuff smells like sugar/vanilla/a little bit of mocha ... yummy! It tastes good too, if you happen to get this in your mouth by accident. The packaging is very attractive, as well: a matte black lipstick tube with the label in tasteful, simple lettering. I put this on before I go to bed and apply regular Chapstick over top and it has been working wonderfully!
Also, this doesn't have icky ingredients (no parabens, for example). It does contain aspartame, but you shouldn't be literally eating this stuff, so no worries. I really like E.L.F. for offering many products without parabens, not to mention their prices.
Anyway, I definitely recommend this lip exfoliator! It is so easy and effective!
E.L.F. is generally one of my go-to brands for cheap, quality products. I know plenty of people hate the brand, but I do my research before buying anything from their website to decrease my chances of buying something I'll regret getting. With the glowing reviews on MUA, I was eager to add this to my lip care collection (which has dimished since I keep losing lip balms left and right). Actually, this might be the only lip care product I need! It relieves me of dry, flaky lips, and I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet (if so then this is a reminder), but you can swipe the side of the lip scrub stick on your lips for lip balm-like moisture. The smoothness on the top of the product fades as the grittiness settles in, but there's plenty of lip balm goodness on the sides as well, and it works! So you get two products in one- an intensely moisturizing lip balm and an outstanding scrub, not to mention it has excellent moisturizing ingredients (especially avocado oil- the aspartame and fragrance aren't needed though). I might buy other (tinted) lip balms for the sake of trying new things, but in my heart I'll know that this product is always there for me through even the worst lip conditions. :)
This product works quite well. My dry lips feel so much better now that I have this product! It's not overly rough on my sensitive lips at all. I think this is the exfoliating lip product that I will purchase over and over again. 5 stars!
Makes my lips very soft without feeling too harsh, also really love the smell/taste! Kind of mocha-y!
