I bought this at Target for $3.00 (paid cash), and find it an indispensable part of my winter lip regime. It takes a few swipes to get to the gritty part, but when you get there, you'll know it. It is seriously rough, but it feels good and my lips are polished and conditioned.
I have a small area on my upper lip that has a tendency to crack when the weather gets bitter (like it is now), but having used this exfoliator for several weeks, it is holding together incredibly well, no painful split when I smile. Best of all, this product makes matte lipstick apply so smoothly. I don't have to worry about flakes and patchiness, usually the bane of matte formulas. Recommend and will repurchase.
I was very skeptical of trying this product simply because it is in stick form, but man were my expectations of the product debunked. This is truly my HG of lip products. I have always had dry, cracked lips. They flake and peel all the time. One little swipe with this product and boom, soft and supple again for hours. I apply chapstick or balm after and it is great. I used to use the Mary kay lip exfoliant in the tube and loved it, but this is even better and at the price of $3.00 (purchased at Harmon Discount/Face Values) it is pure heaven.
This would've been great to try out if it didn't break on me
This lip exfoliater leaves your lips feeling amazing! I use it before bed, and as an extra step I always take a little of the product off of the stick and apply in to my lips myself and scrub my lips that way. I find it gives me even better results.
I've been using this for about a week and absolutely love it! This cold New England weather has my lips very chapped and flaky. After using this product and then putting some EOS lip balm on after, my lips are soft and smooth. I use it every night as part of my routine. And I found it for $3 at Walmart. I will definitely be buying this again!
This is my HG lip exfoliator! I love the convenience of the stick. I wet my lips, then rub the stick all over them every night before I apply my night balm. In some lip exfoliators I've tried, the exfoliating beads were too small to do anything. With this, they were just right. I find when I use this before I use a lip balm it makes my balm work better. Super cheap and convenient, I would definitely recommend!
Can't say enough good things about it. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Will never be without it from now on.
Works well but doesn't last very long. I'm going to repurchase this because of the price though. It works very well for the price so if you have chapped lips I would get it.
I wanted to love this with all my heart, say it was a holy grail, etc. I was so excited when I finally found it in stock at Target. Man, I was giddy.
Then I got home and starting playing with my new treasure, and...I was disappointed. It took a few tries to get through the smooth top layer, and I felt some satisfaction upon feeling the gritty sugar. Felt I was finally getting somewhere!
First I used water to aid in the exfoliation, but it didn't seem to help. (This is how ELF directs on the package.) Disappointed, I then coated my lips with Nivea's lip butter and then used the lip exfoliator. My lips felt smooth but tight, almost dried out. I put on another coat of lip butter. My lips are fine with the lip butter on them, but once it fades away my lips started flaking and chapping...something which never happened to that extent before.
At first I thought it was just because I overused it the day I bought it, so I calmed down to use it once or twice a week. Same effect. It tastes sweet and feels luxurious, but unfortunately the long terms results aren't what I expected. I'll stick to a toothbrush/washcloth and honey or something.
For a cheapie product, this is surprisingly effective. Unlike a lot of other bulleted lip exfoliators where you can't feel anything (hello, The Body Shop), this one has actual grit--sugar--that I can feel. Unlike lip exfoliators in a pot that are a mess to apply (hi, Fresh and Tarte), this applies precisely, conveniently and without mess. It does the job and leaves my lips soft and flake-free. My only complaint is the packaging: the bullet was easily dislodged. But I'll give this five lippies anyway since it's one of the better exfoliators on the market. And for $3, you can't go wrong.
