If you read my blog quite regularly you will know I am a huge fan of a Lush Lip Scrub. As part of this years (2017) Easter range Lush released the chocolate lip scrub. Although this hasn’t been released in stores before, it did make a short appearance on the kitchen.
I find the lip scrubs to be such a handy product to have, due to their small size they are so easy to carry around in a bag, meaning you can have a little mini pamper wherever you happen to be.
The scrubs are designed so that you can take a small scoop out and then rub across your lips to get rid of any dry skin. Sugar is the main exfoliating ingredient which means you don’t get a horrid taste when using this scrub and you don’t have to worry about ingesting any, as it’s 100% safe to consume.
One of my favourite times to use a lip scrub at the moment is just before I pop my lipstick on. I find that exfoliating my lips first gives a lovely soft, smooth canvas for my lipstick and is especially helpful if using a dry matte lipstick which have the tendency to clog up a little and show every tiny bit of dry skin on your lips.
The chocolate lip scrub has a beautiful sweet, vanilla, chocolate scent. Containing dark chocolate, fair trade vanilla, tangerine oil and a good helping of cocoa. This scrub is pretty much a pot of chocolate goodness. I found that the inclusion of vanillia took away some of the sharpness of the dark chocolate and the tangerine oil added a sweetness to the product. As Lush scrubs go, the chocolate lip scrub is the tastiest one I have ever tried (not that I recommend you spoon it out and eat it).
After use I found my lips felt extremely soft and smooth. There are a lot of oils in this product which adds a beautifull moisturising element to the scrub. I personally suffer with chapped lips pretty much all year round so a lip scrub is a key element in my skincare routine. The chocolate lip scrub is now a firm favourite of mine and I will defiantly be stocking up on a few of these to last me the rest of the year.
