Lip Scrubs from LUSH
I have tried a few flavours of this product and the newest one I’ve purchased is popcorn flavoured. The green POW WOW tub isn’t available anymore but the rest are still in their lip scrub range. I didn’t like pow wow, it tasted and smelt nice but it had popping candy in which sort of hurt when rubbed on your skin. Not because the popping candy explodes on your lips (just joking…) but because they’re too lumpy. Tasted nice though! For those who haven’t tried these before, they are little pots of flavoured sugar which are applied to the lips to remove dry skin. They are natural and edible, but I guess some people may find it weird to lick it afterwards since you are technically licking the dead skin of your lips. Like the team at LUSH told me, the product is addictive, a bit like eating a donut and you just want to lick the sugar off your lips. If you do get a bit creeped out, you can just rinse off with water.
Popcorn is the latest addition to my collection and as I mentioned in my last LUSH review
, it was an impulse purchase. I don’t need anymore lip scrubs, but I was sold when the sales assistant told me that it’s salty popcorn flavour. A small pot cost £5.25 and I use this twice a day during winter as I get chapped lips and these sugar scrubs really help smooth things! The packaging describes the taste as buttery and caramel but I read the ingredients and this contains sea salt. It’s not overpowering but now all I think about when I use this product is the sea salt. It is salt and sweet, it’s pleasant enough and it is an interesting flavour for a beauty product like this. The one I would repurchase again and highly recommend is Bubblegum, no salty surprises in that one!
