For a lot of girls, winter means dry, chapped and cracked lips. This can be very annoying, right? Lucky for us, lip scrubs exist! They are perfect to make your lips smooth and make-up ready. Today I tested the popcorn lip scrub from LUSH. Meet this vegan-friendly, sugary exfoliator!
When I bought this product, I noticed a couple of things. First, it was the perfect jar for sticking in your handbag! It’s small and it’s made of glass which means that it won’t break that easy. Next, it contains 25g which is quite a lot and will last, I believe, a long time. I also liked that I could choose from three completely different flavors: popcorn, bubblegum and mint. That doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
Here’s my how-to on applying this sugary lip scrub!
Make sure you wet your lips first. The scrub is very, very dry. If you don’t lick your lips first, the scrub won’t stick and a lot of sugar will fall off before you have the chance to massage it in. Take a little dab of lip scrub on your finger and apply on your lips in circular motions. I don’t need that much to make it work properly but you can experiment with the quantity and look what works best for you. After you’re done, you can just lick it off! If you don’t like the idea of licking it off, you can use a tissue.
The flavor I have, the popcorn one, is not immensely sweet, which is good. I don’t like it when things are too sweet. Beside the sweet taste, you can vaguely taste something salty (which should be the sea salt). It’s the perfect flavor for something you can lick off. Sweet, but not too sweet, with a pinch of salt. Once it’s licked off, your lips feels softer and smoother.
It’s definitely better than the do-it-yourself scrubs I’m used to but I’m pretty sure there are better lip exfoliaters out there. It’s definitely an okay lip scrub! This one costs $8,95 so you get what you pay for. Apply right before your make-up routine to avoid a mess and create a smooth base for your lip balm or lipstick.
