Review | Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub


Hello! I'm posting early today as I'll be on my way to work soon, sigh.
After writing a review on the Angels On Bare Skin cleanser from Lush, it seemed only fair to write one on the second product I purchased from Lush, the product that many bloggers know and love - the Lush lip scrub. 

This winter, around January/February, came a time where my lips were so dry, I could barely move them to talk without them splitting and bleeding. The perks of having an outside job, eh? All the Carmex/Blistex/Vaseline in the world simply could not heal my lips, and in short, it was a disaster. So, I decided to be prepared this year and not only invest in some decent lipbalms, but purchase something to tackle the dry skin before it even has the chance to get as hideously bad as it did before.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you, the Popcorn Lip Scrub, yaaaaay!

The little lifesaver looking all scrubby and brilliant. Yuuuum. 

When I went into the Lush store I wandered straight over to the lip scrubs of which there were 3 - Bubblegum, Popcorn, and the third one's name escapes me. I did try the bubblegum one, but to be honest, the smell of the popcorn one won me over in an instant, and wriggled it's way into my shopping bag. 

This scrub smells delicious and tastes exactly like popcorn. Well, the popcorn from my local cinema anyway. You get the salty but sweet taste and mmm, it's lovely. The concept is that you massage the scrub onto your lips and then lick it away, supposedly revealing soft, smooth lips. I give this a 10/10 so far for that. It tastes amazing, it smells amazing, and my lips feel amazing after using it. Obviously, it's the middle of summer so my lips aren't too bad, but I do tend to get quite dry lips anyway, so for me this is brilliant. At the moment I literally only need a dab of this to cover my lips fully, but this winter is when it really will be put to the test - expect me to be re-reviewing this in the winter months! I picked this up for £5.25, and I can definitely see it lasting me a long while so I call it a bargain!

I apply my 'None Of Your Beeswax' Lush lipbalm after using this scrub and I have never felt my lips so soft in my life. It's like that sensation after you've just shaved and moisturized your legs and then you rub them together and they feel extremely soft, but only it's not your legs, it's your lips. Am I the only one that does this and knows what I'm on about? I apologise for the strange comparison! 

Standing ovation for you, Lush Lip Scrub, you've done me proud.

Let me know if you've tried any of the Lush lip scrubs, what your favourite one is, or if you'll be purchasing one for the winter months to come!
