Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub

A few weeks ago I gave into temptation and purchased the highly spoke about Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush. This product had been on my wishlist for a long time, and on a spontaneous visit to the Lush store in my hometown of Manchester, I decided to give up and buy it - I'm not disappointed!

I've always preferred eye products to lip products (as you may have read in my other posts), and one of the reasons is that when I apply lipstick sometimes it makes my lips appear very dry and flaky. I put this down to my lips being chapped and used lip balms all the time which didn't really do much..After getting into blogging, I saw the name "Bubblegum Lip Scrub" appear all over and after reading about it decided it would be something that would help massively. Even though it sounded great I still wasn't 100% sure, as really it's just sugar mixed in with oil and you can make things like this at home. Anyway, I ended up buying it and as I said, I haven't looked back.

I apply this in the mornings when I'm doing my make up, and follow it up by some lip moisturiser. One of the best things about this scrub is the smell and taste. As the name states, it's bubblegum flavour and as the scrub is edible, you can easily lick it off after scrubbing it into your lips. The scrub buffs away any rough or flaky patches from your lips meaning your lip products will glide on with ease. Sometimes I do have to restrain myself from putting unnecessary amounts on just so that I can eat it...

For all those who want to primp and perfect their lips before putting on their lippie, (who doesn't?), I would definitely recommend the Bubblegum Lip scrub from Lush. It tastes amazing, does a good job and lasts a long time. At just over £5, you can't go wrong.

What do you think of the lip scrub?

Thanks for reading,

  1. I adore this stuff! Love the smell, taste and texture!

    I sneakily put a little *too* much on so I can lick it off as well ;) haha!

    If you find your lips are quite dry and tight, you might actually find you are also dehydrated and need more water. I found my lips tended to crack less once I started to increase my intake of water.

    Lovely blog, followed!

    1. It's such a lovely product isn't it!

      Thank you so much for telling me that! I know I need to drink more water so that's even more motivation for me to do it!

      Thanks again x

    2. Haha I know it's difficult to drink so much water but it must be done!

      I have nominated your blog for a Liebster Award on my blog!

  2. This is my favourite lip scrub ever! I always feel tempted to eat it though, haha!
