|LUSH Popcorn lip scrub €7.35/£5.25|
Last week I was checking out after a little Halloween/Christmas shopping at LUSH thinking ‘I should probably grab a Bubblegum scrub as well’ when I saw Popcorn, the new limited edition for the Holidays and being a huge popcorn fan I couldn’t resist.
If you don’t feel like splurging and you’d rather DIY, the ingredients are pretty basic: caster sugar, jojoba oil, sea salt, Polenta, coconut oil and popping candy; just watch the salt balance or you’ll end up with a drying mix instead of something good for your lips. I’m not sure about the popping candies thing, can’t really tell if they’re there or not, but the popcorn flavor is lovely: it tastes like those warm, sweet and buttery popcorns with random salty bursts you can buy at the movies.
I like to prep my mouth with a muslin cloth soaked in warm water before dipping my finger in the scrub and then rub it gently over my lips in circular motion. The caster sugar lifts and gets rid of dead skin cells while the oils calm and moisturize the lips, getting them ready for your favorite lipstick. The best thing about LUSH lip scrubs is they’re 100% naturals and completely safe to lick off, just find your favorite flavor and try not to eat the whole thing with a spoon!
Lip scrubs are such an underrated product but they can make a huge difference, especially during the colder months.
Do you have a secret lip scrub recipe or are you a member of the ‘let’s be lazy’ club like me?
