Yet again, I’m here to tell you how in love I am with LUSH. Now, I know what this looks like. My last two posts have been about LUSH (Pink & Butterball bath bombs), and here is yet another LUSH review. Although I would love to say that I’m a bona fide LUSH addict, the truth is that I’m much too poor and much too new to this LUSH lifestyle to call myself anything other than a n00b when it comes to everything this magical store has to offer. Nonetheless, here is my latest purchase.
Mint Julips Lip Scrub
It’s a vegan lip scrub (“A lip smacking cocktail,” the front saucily reads) in the scent Mint Julips.
Tasty mint chocolate sugar lip scrub for smooth moves and sweeter kisses.
The description, as usual, totally sells me on this product. But the product itself is effective and sweet. The directions say to “scrub and buff your lips to softness, lick off the excess then apply your favourite LUSH Lip Balm.” I would add to scrub gently, no matter how much dead skin you’re trying to get rid of. It will buff away eventually and since it’s sugar, rubbing the grains can be kind of harsh on your lips if you rub too hard.
I admit that I find myself applying this sometimes just to lick it off or for the tingles from the mint. Luckily, it’s totally safe to do, and there are enough oils in the mixture that licking my it off my lips and applying lip balm immediately after doesn’t completely dry out my lips. In a colder/drier environment, that may not be the case, however.
Ingredients: Castor Sugar, Cold Pressed Organic Castor Sugar, Cold Pressed Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Vanilla Extract (Vanilla planifolia), Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), *Limonene, Flavour. *Occurs naturally in essential oils. (This is all according to the product label.)
Unlike some LUSH products that expire quickly, this one says it lasts 14 months.
Do you have any lip scrubs, LUSH or otherwise, that you’re loving? Let me know!
