Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub 25g £5.25
I had been really looking forward to a mini spree in Lush as i'd not been to Belfast in a good few weeks, so while i was there yesterday meeting some friends for dinner and Frappucinos i picked up a few bits and pieces!When looking around Lush it's easy to think things are a bit overpriced, but you have to keep in mind the values of the highly ethical values of the company, and of course the face that it's all hand made. Of the things i bought this is the only one i've had time to properly use, and i'm already addicted. The taste and scent is a sweet chocolate vanilla, and is made primarily from castor sugar, which is exactly how it feels! You apply the scrub with your finger and rub it in to your lips to exfoliate and hydrate them, before licking off the excess, which is a novelty i'm really into given it tastes completely divine. I absolutely hate lip glosses, and i find that with some balms the effect can be drying, resulting in you having to constantly re-apply throughout the day, but this is completely different. After removing the excess you're left with hydrated soft lips which feel natural and substance-free! No stickiness, no shiny glossy look, just healthy natural lips. I can tell this little pot is going to last quite a while as well, it doesn't seem to be going down and i've found myself reaching for it countless times over the last couple of days! If you're not into the sweet chocolate flavour, there is also a mint and a bubblegum flavour which i will definitely be trying out next.
