Review: Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - £5.50 (25g)
I'm pretty sure everyone has heard about this product before and knows what it does but if you don't then boy, you are in for a treat. Some time last year my sister bought Lush's Bubblegum Lip Scrub and I very slowly started using it once a day without her noticing.. Then I started using it twice day.. Then I tried to use it three times a day as, quite frankly, I enjoyed eating it. Then she moved to Leeds and took it with her so she very thoughtfully bought me one for Christmas.

What Lush say about their Bubblegum Lip Scrub:
"A gentle exfoliator to prime and refine your lips and leave them tasting divine. This sugary perfectly pink polisher keeps lips in tip top condition and tasting of candy floss. 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."

The Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub comes in a cute little 25g pot which is the perfect size to carry around with you. I know some people may find it tricky with the 'finger in pot' thing so if you have some troubles with the hygiene side of this product then it may not be for you in that instance.

If you read my blog a lot you'll know that I get really dry, chapped lips and this product is quite literally a life saver. You just needed a tiny bit of the scrub on your finger, rub it in and your lips should be buffed and moisturised. As long as you keep using this little pot of beauty, dry, chapped lips should be a thing of the past. Lush's Bubblegum Lip Scrub is also the perfect product to use to prep and prime before applying lipstick. I know some lipsticks don't show up dry areas on the lips but if they do then this product is great to use beforehand to ensure that your lipstick will be looking the best it can be.

I literally adore this lip scrub and can't rave about it enough but let's look at it from a cynical point of view. The majority of the ingredients in it are caster sugar, organic jojoba oil, a flavour and colourings. Take away the flavour and the colourings, it is essentially sugar and oil which you could make yourself but in all honesty, will it be as nice as the Lush version? Will it be a pretty pink, taste like bubblegum and smell amazing? Probably not.
