It is not a secret that I like Lush and am their frequent customer, so you can often read about their products here. Today it is time for their BUBBLEGUM LIP SCRUB. If you ever entered any of their shops or browsed around Lush's site you probably noticed this small glass jar with its pink content inside.

As its name says, it is a scrub but specially made for delicate skin on your lips. It is efficient and mild enough at the same time, leaving your lips smooth and nourished.  For best results it should be followed with a lip balm of your choice. Since it is sugar based, this is definitely a product that you can make by yourself at home, but that is not something I usually do. It also contains jojoba oil which nourishes your lips in order to leave them nice and smooth.

You apply a small amount on your lips, gently massage them and then either rinse it off or lick the rest off. It is natural and edible. In my opinion this is as girly product as it can be, since it is pink and smells like cotton candy bubblegums.

list of ingredients

As I said, it comes in 25 g glass jar which has a protective cap when you first buy it, and it is packed full.

I've read that some women/girls use it both in the morning (before lipstick or gloss) and in the evening (before a balm). In my opinion, that is a bit too much. I use it only in the evening every or every other day. After it, I apply my beloved Korres jasmine lip butter. This routine works great for me. My lips are always nice and smooth.

This is how Lush describes it:
"Prep your lips with a buff and polish at the start of your make-up routine to ensure your lipstick glides on and stays put. Just apply with a clean finger, and let the exfoliating caster sugar and softening jojoba oil scrub away dead skin and infuse moisture to rejuvenate your smile. Bubblegum lip scrub won’t leave any greasy residue; just a sweet candy taste that you’ll enjoy licking off. Lip-smackingly good."

You can buy this small jar for 67 kunas in Croatia (6.93 GBP, 8.70 Euros, 11.15 $). While browsing through Lush sites internationally, I've realized that it is less expensive in other countries, so a jar of it in the UK will cost you only 5.50 GBP. So, it is not cheap at all. Another minus that I have to mention is that with time it hardens and looses that light sugary texture. It is still good and effective, but since this is not my first jar of this product, I have to mention it. On the jar it says that it is best to use it in a year from the time that it was made. I think it is OK that you use it up in a year from opening it.

In my opinion, this is a great product, with an excessive price tag but I still like it and have it. Although I must say that I got it in my Think Pink box for 50% less. It is fun to use and this small jar reminds me to give some love to my lips on the daily basis. If you are not crazy about pink, bubblegum taste and smell, you have other scrubs to choose from. I must admit that I, personally, would not buy the popcorn one. I have another one from their Christmas LE. Too cute...
The conclusion is that I bought them before and would and will buy them again, but can't tell you to go and buy them! If you have will and knowledge to make something like this at home, or just don't want to splurge for this type of product, I fully understand your reasons.

So.... Is this something you would be interested in? Have you tried any of their lip scrubs? Do you make something like this by yourself?

Tell me...

Love, beautyandbrains007
