Lush Lip Scrub – Popcorn

Date Tue, August 8 2017

Y’all know Lush right? The luxury bath and beauty store?That makes handmade cosmetics? That happen to be natural? Of course, you do!

Now, I’ve been aware of Lush for a while, but I just bought my first Lush product last month. I currently don’t have a bathtub, so a lot of their products aren’t things I can use now. And while I don’t mind the premium price, I’m only going to pay it if I know I’m going to get use out of it.

And if I’m being honest — and I always am — Lush products don’t tend to tickle my nose. They’re a little strong or too floral. So I’ve been in stores a few times but usually leave empty-handed. Not this time, though!

While Lush does make a lip scrub with mint (Mint Julips is the clever name), you’ll also find scents/flavors such as chocolate, bubblegum, and honey. The latter is the other option that I was considering. I wasn’t sure if the sweet and salty combination of popcorn was up my alley. But I decided to give it a go. And I’m glad I did!

I’ve used body scrubs in the past that have either sugar or salt as a base, but the lip scrub has both to achieve a flavor that’s a bit more like kettle corn than your typical butter-covered movie variety popcorn. Compared to body scrubs, this scrub for lips is much dryer. You can’t see an oil or cream base at all (although, it does contain both jojoba oil and extra virgin coconut oil). It’s just damp enough to stick to your finger when you place it in.

i think my favorite aspect of this lip scrub is that you don’t rinse it off. You just lick if off when you’re done. So it’s tasty and.. sort of fun? I’ve always wondered what you’re supposed to do with lip scrub when you use them — you just rinse off body scrubs. Lush has solved that problem by making a lip scrub that’s edible. Clean up is a breeze.. even if it can be a little messy.

After using this lip scrub, the sweetness stays on my lips for a while.

I’ve used this a few times, and it feels pretty gentle. I haven’t had any reactions nor do my lips feel too sensitive after. They’re softer and smoother, though. If you’re looking for a super hydrating lip scrub, I’m not sure if this one is right for you, however. I still use chapstick after but they don’t feel dry after using it.
