Unicorn Lip Scrub from Lush

Unicorn Lip Scrub (1)

At the point of writing this review the Unicorn Lip Scrub is now a part of Lush’s main-product-line. It is a brand new release for 2020 and has got a lot of people excited, me included.

I have loved the magic and wonder behind unicorns for as long as I can remember and I have always rooted for more unicorn-inspired Lush products to be released. I adore the Unicorn Horn bubble bar but there is still a huge gap for more unicorn inspired something-or-others on Lush’s shelves!

I knew as soon as I learnt of this lip scrubs name that I was going to buy a pot, buying Lush products blindly is something I haven’t done for a long time but I couldn’t resist upon hearing its name.

The main ingredient in Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still lost for words that such a readily available and cheap ingredient can do such a great job.

Using a Lush lip scrub requires the minimum of effort and they cover everything your lips need to always look their best. They are the perfect product to gently buff away dead and dry skin from your lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating your lips too. Maintaining the perfect pout has never been easier or tastier thanks to Lush!

As well as caster sugar the Unicorn lip scrub also contains organic virgin plum and jojoba oils. Both of these ingredients are known for their emollient properties and is an exfoliatingly-smooth force-to-be-reckoned-with when put with caster sugar.

Unlike any other lip scrub released by Lush before, Unicorn has 2 layers. Its top layer is blue and its bottom layer is a purpley pink. Supposedly, the 2 layers are different flavours/scents. With mine arriving pretty much all mixed together I sadly can’t confirm this to be true or not.

The Unicorn lip scrub has an incredibly moreish blueberry muffin like fragrance. The taste that it leaves on your lips is however a little artificial, it reminds me a little of Lush’s Bubblegum lip scrub when you use too much. A little amount of the lip scrub does go a long way, with its flavour being so strong I’d say that less being more is a great rule to abide by when using the Unicorn lip scrub.

What I wasn’t expecting in the Unicorn lip scrub was popping candy, it was a very strange sensation but didn’t hinder its lip buffing qualities at all. Over all I do really like the Unicorn lip scrub, it’s not my favourite but it does what its meant to do. I would like to maybe improve upon its flavour slightly as it does taste a little artificial but I’ve enjoyed using it nevertheless!
