The Toffee Apple Lip Scrub is yet another brand new product created for Lush’s 2020 Halloween line. I use Lush lip scrubs almost every day so whenever a new one is released I always try to buy a pot.
The main ingredient in Lush lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still lost for words that such a simple and natural ingredient can do such a great job at creating smooth and hydrated lips. Why other cosmetic companies ever felt the need to use micro-plastics in their exfoliating products when we have always had sugar to-hand is beyond me.
Just like the Unicorn lip scrub, Toffee Apple also has 2 different layers. Its top layer is bright green and its bottom layer is a Halloween-spooky-special, BLOOD RED. Both layers aren’t just different colours either, they are also different flavours/scents. The green layer is apple and the red layer is sickly-sweet sticky toffee. The perfect mix of both sweet and sour!
Lush lip scrubs make maintaining the perfect pout ridiculously easy, they cover everything your lips need to always feel and look their best. Sugar is an excellent ingredient for gently buffing away dead and dry skin from your lips while the organic jojoba oils and shea butters are good for softening and hydrating them.
Exfoliating your lips has so many benefits and has never been easier thanks to Lush.
As well as the ingredients I mentioned above, the Toffee Apple lip scrub also contains, bergamot, geranium and sandalwood oils. It’s sweet and sour scent is incredibly moreish.
Being honest as always, I do love the 2 different coloured layers mixed together, it’s toffee-apple scented heaven BUT as a die-hard fan of all things apple I couldn’t help but think that the apple layer would also sell very well on its own.
I’m just thinking out loud but maybe as a Valentine’s Day product? I’m thinking a fairytale-apple-theme to work alongside the newly released Once Upon A Time body spray?! 😉
Just like the Galaxy lip scrub from last years Christmas line, Toffee Apple is very pigmented. This means that I recommend using a little amount at a time to prevent any colour transfer. You do actually only need a small amount for it to work but just in case you liked the taste so much that you were tempted to over indulge, be careful so you aren’t left with green tinged lips!
Overall I really do like the Toffee Apple lip scrub, it’s not my favourite lip scrub from Lush but it’s one I’d happily buy again if given the opportunity. A huge positive about it is that it’s a lot more hydrating than any other lip scrub I have used from Lush before.
