Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Lip scrubs have intrigued me for a while now, so I decided to get this lovely smelling one from Lush. The first thing that hit me is that it tasted gorgeous! Like sweets. But then again, it is essentially just sugar, which prompted me to think "have I just spent a fiver on sugar, of which I have a jar full in the kitchen?". So, amazing tasting as it was, I did become sceptical, thinking that I could just rub sugar onto my lips for a fraction of the price.

However, after using this a few times I did notice that it made my lips a lot smoother. You simply dab your (clean) finger in it and rub it over your lips, then rub your lips together until it has disappeared (into your mouth- yummy!). This got rid of the dead skin on my lips, leaving them feeling very soft. I expected them to feel a bit dry after being exfoliated and in need of lip balm, but actually they felt quite moisturised.

Although £5.25 does seem quite a lot for what is essentially sugar, one pot does last a long time as you only need a tiny bit. It does work in exfoliating and smoothing out your lips; my lipstick looks much better after using this as a base. I now use it in my every day beauty routine and the taste makes this a very pleasant additional step!

Has anyone else tried Lush's lip scrubs? What are the other flavours like? Does anyone have any other lip scrub recommendations?

Price: £5.25
