Flaky, dry lips are the bane of my life, and although I have lots and lots of glorious lip balms I’m really not one for reapplying make up during the day unless I have a giant day glo spot which needs more concealer.
I think Sarah Happ’s lip scrub is ok. I have a few other lip scrubs are ok, I haven’t found one what I totally love yet.
Enter Lush’s new Sweet Lips Lip Scrubs:
Lush’s Sugar Lip Scrubs are mainly made of…well sugar, with different flavours and scents. I got Bubblegum and Sweet Lips to try.
Bubblegum is a hot pink that smells of yes, sweet gum and Sweet Lips is a cocoa based one.
Both come in 25g jars. Not sure how sturdy they are, I noticed one of the lids was cracked when I started to unscrew it:
The quantity is good – each jar is densely packed with product (can you see its overspilling?!) so it would last for ages.
You rub this product over the lips, wipe off and apply your balm as normal.
One criticism I do have is that the texture of mine were a little dry.Sort of crumbly so fell everywhere. To counteract this, I just added a bit of my lip balm et voila! Lovely sugary lip scrub ahoy!
This is the Bubblegum flavour. Its a Vegan friendly mixture:
Overall these are a pretty good alternative to the Sarah Happ, which can also be a bit dry. The Sarah Happ is about £20 retail and the Lush Lip Scrubs are only £4.50 so if you are going to buy your own pot, I’d definitely plump for Lush:
Or….make your own! See my tutorial.
