One of the very first products that I ever got from Lush was a pot of their Bubblegum lip scrub, from the very first use I was hooked. When it comes down to lip exfoliation you can’t go wrong with Lush. Up until this years winter line came out, Lush’s lip scrubs had only ever been sold in a glass 25g pot. Now, they also come in a ‘naked’ form.
The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs (potted or naked) is caster sugar. When I tried my very first Lush lip scrub, I was blown away at the fact that a product with such a basic ingredients list worked so much better than any other lip exfoliator that I had tried before. Caster sugar is the perfect ingredient for gentle yet effective exfoliation.
Making a naked and solid version of their much loved potted lip scrubs is in my eyes the best idea Lush have ever had. The potted lip scrubs work like a dream but since trying the naked versions I doubt i’ll be buying the potted versions ever again. Lush have managed to improve what I already deemed a perfect product.
I honestly raved about the potted lip scrubs to anyone who would listen. The naked version however blows the potted version right out of the water. I don’t think I’ve ever been this impressed with a Lush product shake-up. Smelling almost identical to the, The Comforter bubble bar and shower cream the Sugar Plum Fairy Naked Lip Scrub has a beautiful and rich berry scent, living up to its scent families name, it truly does have a warm and comforting fragrance.
The difference between the naked and potted lip scrubs apart from the obvious is that the naked lip scrubs are solid. When I have been asked to describe the new naked lip scrubs texture I always compare it to a very moisturising sugar cube. I know that isn’t technically a thing but it’s the only way I can think of describing it. It is solid and scrubby just like a sugar cube, it however is strangely moisturising too.
The solid lip scrubs are nothing like their potted equivalent, they do not crumble at all. I always make a right mess when using the potted versions, often accidentally wasting some of the product as it falls before making it to my lips. With the naked lip scrubs there is no mess or product waste at all.
My favourite thing about the naked lip scrubs is that they are solid, because of this you can apply so much more pressure on to your lips during application, it makes buffing away the dry bits of skin so much easier than it was before. If you have long nails like me then you’ll be pleased to know that there is also no more trouble fishing the product out of the pot.
To use, all you have to do is rub it onto your lips in a similar way you would put lipstick on. Once you feel satisfied with the coverage, you then just wipe the sugar away to reveal smooth and lovely looking lips. Some wipe it off while others lick, both options are perfectly safe.
Just like the Black Rose naked lip scrub the Sugar Plum Fairy naked lip scrub is incredibly hydrating for your lips, I wasn’t expecting this at all as the potted versions aren’t anything as moisturising as these. I am over the moon with all of the new naked lip scrubs, I hope Lush bring out more of them soon as I want them all. I don’t think I have ever been more satisfied in a product before. Lush’s perfection par just got a whole lot higher!
