Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub Review
Happy Saturday loves!! It's sooo nice here in NYC and I am so excited for Spring. Come on baby!!
I'm a Lush newbie and have been using some of their products since February. Since I'm always reading blogs, Lush comes highly recommended by a lot of other beauty bloggers and I was starting to feel left out. So as I was wandering around the mall, I just stopped in and decided to give the brand a try. And....I am so loving it!
First up, Lush Lip Scrub. I happened to shop the store before Valentine's Day so I picked up their limited edition The Kiss lip scrub. They actually still sell it online and it's so cute because there are little hearts in the scrub. I'm super in love with just the cuteness of this product!
Let me tell you the reasoning behind buying this scrub. Winters in NYC are terrible. It's soooo cold, windy, and sometimes we are knee deep in snow. The main issue is...I have to walk everywhere. I walk from my apartment to the subway, wait for my train, walk to work, walk to the gym, walk back to the subway, wait for the train, walk back to my apartment. I think you get the hint. Lots of walking, lots of time outside, and loads of time to damage my skin, especially my lips. My lips get super dry, cracked, starts to bleed most times, and the skin flakes. Attractive right? I try to use lip balms as much as I can but sometimes it's still not enough. Recently, I started to notice my lips flaking and peeling a lot more and since I love to wear my lip glosses and lipsticks, my final lip look wasn't looking as smooth as I would have liked. (Especially with this matte lip trend currently happening) I checked out Pinterest and there were loads of DIY recipes for scrubs. I'm sure many are awesome but sometimes I hesitate with DIY because they can be messy and all the ingredients can cost the amount of this $9.95 Lush lip scrub. Also, the main concern I had was moisture. I didn't want to make my own sea salt lip scrub and end up drying my lips out more. Ok on to the review now that you have the background!
I love love love this scrub sooo much. As soon as I opened this baby up, I had to smell it. It smells amazingggg and it's my favorite color...PINK! So sweet and good enough to eat. You can actually scrub you lips with it and then lick it off! It's made of caster sugar, fine sea salt, organic cocoa butter, some essential oils, and other natural goodness. I use this product every morning right after I brush my teeth. It leave my lips feeling smooth, soft, polished, and moisturized. It's the perfect way to prep before I apply my lipstick because it definitely exfoliates my lips. The main reason I love it: it doesn't dry out my lips! It'll also last you forever because you only need to use a pea-sized amount. I've been using it daily since early February and I have definitely noticed an improvement with my lip condition. Thank goodness!
Have you used any Lush lip scrubs? I would love to hear from you!
Enjoy your weekend!
