LUSH: Santa's Lip Scrub



Cracked sore lips are just embarrassing, they don't look pretty and can really make you feel conscious. Unfortunately when winter comes around I seem to shrivel up like a dried prune, everything that can get dry does- it ain't a pretty sight. Lip scrubs have been the rave this year, from homemade to bought and I couldn't help asking myself do I need this? Is this just another unnecessary step to my already jam packed skincare routine? On this occasion I have to eat humble pie (yay pie) and admit that I was very wrong about lip scrubs.

I had previously settled with using a dry toothbrush gently brushed over dry lips and this pretty much seemed to do the trick, but recently my lips went through a tough time and this method simply wasn't cutting it anymore. I browsed  my way through endless blogs found some lovely D.I.Y lip scrub posts and I will try my to make my own lip scrub some day but to buy all the ingredients and a jar it probably would have cost me a similar amount to this one...enter the lazy girls option

This is just lovely! Buffed away all of that dry skin on my lips (ew) my lips literally looked super smooth, super red, a little plumped but super healthy after using this. This tastes strange I can't work out if I like it or not, this definitely has a strong cola scent which I love! But as far as taste goes it isn't very colaish. But after all this is to buff not to eat so I can let them off on the taste factor (just this once.) What I really love about this Lush scrub is the fact that it manages to be super abrasive get the job done, but doesn't leave my lips or the skin around them sore at all.

Have you tried the Lush lip scrubs, what are your favourites?
Is anyone as excited as me for the boxing day sales can't wait to get as many discounted Lush sets as I can...

These are great for keeping lips smooth and supple and even though I absolutely love this Christmas edition, my all time favourite is definitely Bubblegum :o). Xx

This sounds really lovely, I tried using a toothbrush at first (I'm a bit stingy with money but these do look worth it) but it was quite sore and painful on my cracked lips! I may just invest in this.
