I’ve these lip scrubs for a few weeks and have only got round to a review now!
Being not one to do things by halves I ordered all six flavours!
Cinnamon Sugar – a sweet, cinnamony thick dark brown sugar paste:
Peppermint – white sugar:
Cocoa – Chocolatey good:
So basically this is a lip exfoliator. It’s main exfoliating component is good old sugar. There’s tons of product in each of these jars and the paste is very thick.
I have a few lip scrubs but I have never found them scrubby enough. I like something with some tough exfoliating power and Sarah Happ has that.
I opened Cinnamon Sugar – I just love Cinnamon!
I got a dollop of this then worked it into my lips for a while. It felt gritty, then I wiped (and licked it off a bit) and my lips were fresher and softer but on the downside, a bit sticky and sort of….dry. Le Mer lip balm to the rescue.
The product is not without its faults. Let’s get real for a second – the main ingredient is SUGAR. Each one of these pots cost £20. Yes it’s pretty and it’s a lovely gift for a girlfriend as it comes in a gorgeous box and pot. And I think it will last but…£20. For a tub of sugar.
I mentioned a few posts ago I was once a soaper – made the real thing with fats and lye, but I also picked up how to make things like face creams (quite tricky) and lip balms. I think it would be quite straight forward to make a balm base then incorporate some sugar into it to make it into a scrub. It wouldn’t keep as well as this, but still it would cost a lot less. You could also use other grainy things like….er…..erm…..grit….sand….maldon sea salt….
God knows why I bought all six flavours – because I’m stoopid?
Anyway I have already opened cinnamon and I think I will keep pepperming but if you are interested in any of the other flavours drop me an email. They are brand new, sealed, boxed, ribboned for £14.00 each, (£20 rrp) plus £2.30 shipping in the UK recorded, £3.30* shipping international.
*This is not recorded. Recorded international shipping is £6. I sent a lipgloss, ONE poxy lipgloss to the US cost me £5.60 last week. No joke. So if you want recorded it will be £6
