I'm stunned by the positive reviews. I've been using Fresh Lip Polish for years and decided to give this a try for comparison's sake. Total waste of money. First of all, the abundance of "flavors" should have been a red flag. I don't taste my Fresh Lip Polish...because it stays on my lips when I'm using it. The texture of the Sara Happ scrub is ridiculous. The texture is very loose and sloppy, which is why they direct you to apply a generous amount. You'll lose at least half of it in the sink or on your chin. The granules are way, way too big. And I did get a mouthful of scrub. I can't imagine this being pleasant in ANY flavor.

I really like this lip scrub by Sara Happ. BUT, major BUT, I feel like the price is unreasonable. I bought this to demystify all the rave reviews and as a splurge. While I wouldn't say that I am disappointed, I was expecting more of an effect for this price.
It is a basic sugar scrub, so I will probably just use a regular scrub in the future. I like that you can lick this off your lips and it tastes delicious. You don't need as much of the product because it doesn't get all over the place like Lush lip scrub. Also, it is well preserved, so that I don't have to make a batch every few days. I think I will end up making due with a regular tooth brush.

And the packaging? Laughably cheap.
Back to Fresh Lip Polish. This went in the trash.

It's a good scrub, nothing too special. I really do like the texture of this one, unlike the Lush, it has a nice consistency that doesn't fall apart in your finger and get all over the place. However, I don't think it's worth the money. The lush scrub does the job just as well for $9 and this one is $24. The only significant difference is the consistency. When I run out I'll just go back to my lush one.

Nothing to rave about. It is a good scrub, and I find it is better than the lip scrub by Lush, simply because it's sticky and the sugar granules do not fly around and away the moment you start scrubbing, but they stay put and do their job. It is delicious and housed in a cute pot which is itself housed in a cute little box with a cute little bow- but that's it. Not worth the price tag for sure. If at some point I wanted to treat myself, maybe I would repurchase. Not bonkers about it though. Demystified!

Love this lip scrub by Sarah Happ. I use it on my lips for about a minute morning and night. My lips feel so soft after I use it because it scrubs off all the dead skin. It smells amazing, and the product itself tastes delicious. However, since the ingredients to the product are listed on the side of the packaging, I felt like I can make the exact thing at home. I do love this, but it was a bit pricey. If you're on a budget, I'd recommend for you to look up the ingredients and make this scrub yourself at home. I just bought it because I was too lazy to make the concoction, and all the ingredients put together costed about the same amount as The Lip Scrub (however, you get way more). The jar does last a long time, though. And a bit of residue from the scrub is left on your lips after you wash it off, making it feel soft and moisturized. I would recommend this product if you're not on a budget. If you're not, you can simply make this at home.

I am going to disagree with the rest of MUA here and give this product a GOOD rating DESPITE its seemingly high price.
Yes, I recognize that it is super easy to make your own similar lip scrub using sugar, vaseline, honey, and olive oil for less than a tenth of the price.
Yes, this scrub seems super overpriced for the materials used to make it.
Yes, the celebrity marketing scheme is totally obnoxious.
Here's why I would repurchase without hesitation if I ever run out of this pot:
FIRST, I've made my own scrub but I could NEVER get the texture of my own product to be as pleasant as Sara Happ's. My DIY scrub was always too greasy, too clumpy, and too messy. I had to wash it off with water every time I used it, which was extremely inconvenient when I'm rushing out the door in the morning, and I would inevitably wash off some of my foundation/other make up if I already had it on. sara happ's has a GREAT texture that I can really tissue off or lick off.
If you have chronically dry, flakey lips like I do, obviously follow up with a lip balm after using. My favorite is Lypsyl.
SECOND, my DIY scrub starts to smell funky after a few weeks. sara happ's smells and tastes great over the months--no doubt to due to their manufactured fragrance/preservative. As someone who hasn't bought into the blind fearmongering over parabens and ingredients like petrolatum, this doesn't bother me and I love that it keeps.
THIRD, if you compare sara happ's portions to other similar lip scrubs on the market, this is actually great value for the money. Other lip scrubs are the same cost for much less product. Ex philosophy, bite, etc. I know lush has a lip scrub as well that costs less, but its texture is far inferior and much more messy than this one. Plus I've always hated the cloying smell of the Lush store--just walking into one makes me feel like I'm about to break out into hives.
Bottom line: it works as advertised--gets rid of flakes and preps lips for lipstick application, smells great and lasts a long time. It's good value for money, and is superior in both quality and value to other lip scrubs on the market.

If youve noticed, all of thr bad reviews are about THE PRICE not the actual quality of theproduct which is gosh darn amazing..Guys, hear me out on this...I have the absolute WORST lips ever created and I've tried every lip scrub known to man. Lush, fresh, fabulips, red salvation, etc etc..you name it. THIS IS THE BEST LIP SCRUB IN THE ENTIRE WORLD...it's worth the price cause it's 300 times better than fresh's terrible 20 dollar lip polish. For the first time I actually have a lip scrub that's abrasive enough to exfoliate my terrible lips, moisturize like a boss so they're soft AND tastes great and lasts long! Don't Buy ANYTHING else. You won't find anything better than this. Apply, scrub fast but gently, wipe away with a tissue. It's that simple. I can now have a boyfriend who won't leave Me for my chapped lips! I STRONGLY suggest using this with the lip slip but my eos works wonders with it too! If you're not getting the right results YOU AREN'T DOING IT RIGHT!!! Man, it does an amazingggg job for my lips, if only it was 12 dollars cheaper, and there wasn't petrolatum, I would buy HUNDREDS of these. Now I really wonder "how I lived without it"

The second ingredient in th Lip Scrub by Sara Happ is Petroleum - you can google about petroleum and health risks associated with it - I bought this product and am throwing it away immediately!:
A great alternative with much better ingredients (although still a pricy product for what it is!) is Clovertree Lip Scrub - I have the Sugared Vanilla and it is delish!!

I would never buy this again. It is just a simple sugar lip scrub anyone can make in their kitchen or buy any lip scrubs it works exactly the same. Sara Happ hasn't impressed me with any of her products. At least this works though unlike the lip slip, which is just vaseline. This smells good but c'mon it's not worth 24$ at all. I wasted my money man.
