My new recent obsession is Lush. While picking my bestie up a couple of bits for her birthday in there recently, I decided to get myself a little glass pot of Mint Julips lip scrub at the same time..cause you know, I'm good to myself that way. To say my lips suffer badly in the cold weather would be an understatement- they go horribly dry and flaky and any chance of wearing lipstick goes out the window. Although I've recently discovered an AMAZING lip conditioner (more of that at a later date), I still needed an actual scrub and had heard good things about this one from Lush. Firstly I'll just say- this smells so good. Often times I find Lush scents can be a small bit overpowering but this is just gorgeous. Mint Chocolate flavoured (a dead ringer for the ice cream), when I first apply it I get a hit of mint followed closely by vanilla- delicious. Full of lots of lovely ingredients including castor sugar, organic jojoba oil, vanilla extract and peppermint oil, this really is good enough to eat. In fact, Lush suggest after scrubbing and buffing your lips with the sugar, you can lick off the excess! Yay-added bonus!
For your monies (6.75 euro to be exact) you get 25g of product, which is actually pretty decent considering how little of it you need every time and how effective it is. I've been using this every second day and find my lips are a lot softer- if I drank more water and didn't insist on blasting the radiators up to the top heat I'm sure they'd be even softer, but what can you do. Apart from drink more water and build up a tolerance to the cold, obviously. But that's never going to happen. After using this yesterday I was able to wear my favourite matte red YSL lipstick out to dinner last night- such is the power of the almighty Mint Julips lip scrub!
