Ever since trying my very first Lush lip scrub I have been hooked.
I don’t even bother looking at other brands anymore as no other lip scrub exfoliates, hydrates and softens my lips better.
I am a frequent user of Lush lip scrubs as I have an awful habit of biting my lips in my sleep. I like the Lush lip scrubs over others because they require minimum effort while covering everything your lips needs to look their best.
Being in a little tub, Lush lip scrubs can easily be slipped into your hand bag ready for you when you need it. They are a quick and easy way to exfoliate dry or chapped lips on the go.
The Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub is a part of 2016’s Lush Winter line and it is one of 2 releases. Unexpectedly to me, Sugar Plum shares its scent with The Comforter Bubble Bar.
I love the Comforter bubble bar I however am indecisive in regards to the shower cream equivalent because I find the scent too strong. Once I have however used it and the scent has dampened somewhat, I begin to warm to it. It’s definitely more desirable for me an hour or so after using it.
The Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub like the shower cream is very strongly scented. This worried me a little as the thought of putting it near my mouth made me feel a little bit sick.
The smallest amount however goes a long way and I found that when it was on my lips its scent wasn’t nearly as strong as it is in the pot.
The main ingredient in Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still amazed something so basic and natural can do such a good job at exfoliating.
To use a lip scrub, place the smallest amount on to your finger then gently buff it on to your lips. The sugar helps smoothes and soothes any bits of your lips that don’t appear perfectly polished.
Once you have then finished buffing your lips you then add a dab of Lush lip balm.
Over all I am really impressed by the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub, it is not as moisturising as others I have tried such a Bubblegum or Chocolate, it however still leaves my lips looking smooth and at their best.
