Question...what smells like sweet bubblegum, tastes just as sweet and is a beautiful bright pink color? Answer: this right here! Not only that but it does a pretty decent job at getting rid of dead skin on my lips. Anyone who uses a matte lipstick knows how important it is to apply on a smooth surface, otherwise you end up with your lippie settling into chapped areas and just generally looking gross. I use this first thing - as it is slightly messy and then follow with a lip balm (Nuxe or La Mer currently). I then proceed with the rest of my routine. Definitely best to use BEFORE foundation as it's not just the product spreading out, but when you start to rinse off there's every chance you might end up with water and product around your mouth too!
What I like best about Bubblegum Lip scrub (Key lime pie and Honey versions are good too) is how natural they are. This is the only lip scrub I own which has such a natural and small selection of ingredients in it: exfoliating grains (caster sugar) a little jojoba oil and flavoring. That's it! No unpronounceables and no mega long list of ingredients, Lush keep it sweet and simple for you.
The ONLY lip scrub I'm 100% not afraid of accidentally getting into my mouth!

I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora)
