Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
This is just flavored sugar in fancy packaging and yummy taste! It is soo good, that I practically lick this stuff before I start scrubbing. I consiously try to avoid licking this stuff while actually scrubbing simply because the idea of licking your own dead skin sounds sooo grossssss!! eeewww.....
Anyways, this is what the Lush website has to say about their product.
Scrub your lips smooth with our sweetest confection. Bubblegum is our ode to all things pink, girly and sugary. A blend of exfoliating Fair Trade sugar and moisturizing Castor oil, this lip scrub is sure to leave your lips enticingly soft and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time! For a flawless pout, scrub Bubblegum over your lips (be sure to lick off the excess) and then apply your favorite lip color.
Even though the description says Castor Oil, the SA in my store said it was Organic Jojoba oil and that is what is mentioned in the ingredient list too. I have no idea what exactly is in it though. Jojoba oil or castor oil.
Color: Bright Pink
Fragrance: Sweet, like Bubblegum
Texture: Gritty and coarse. Not chunky.
Consistency: Dry but not goopy
Application: I just use it directly on my dry lips or sometimes slightly moist lips. Scrub them in circular motion and few minutes later all the sugar melts. I wash it off with plain water and apply a lip balm.
Feel on lips: After few minutes of scrubbing and not licking the product, the sugar melts and disappears leaving a sticky feel on lips.
Effects: After the whole scrubbing part and applying a lip balm, the lip feels super soft and actually plump. I guess it is due to the scrubbing effect and increase of blood flow on lips.
What I feel about the product:
Personally, I would prefer the consistency to be little more goopy, so that its easy to pick and stick on lips. With current consistency, its difficult to do that and some product actually ends up in the sink.
The product itself is something very basic and made fancy. The effects and after results can be achieved by using a homemade sugar and olive oil scrub, or old methods like using a wash cloth or tooth brush to scrub.
It just makes the whole scrubbing a fun experience and because its all fancy and I paid for, it motivates me to use it more religiously.
It is not a must have product, but definately a cute one.
I really want to try the Fresh Sugar Lip Polish. Have you tried that product? Is it really Awesome or just another expensive product in fancy packaging?
