LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 9 - 2010

Baahhhh!

Like the sheep I am, I knew I had to have this after reading about it on the fabulous LionLovingTiger‘s blog.

LUSH Mint Julips is a sugar-rich scrub for your lips, housed in a fully unsanitary little black glass pot.  It’s possibly the most travel unfriendly item I own, and yet I tote it around with me everywhere, sneaking it out of my handbag whenever I’m in a semi-private place to give my lips a quick rub.  I did tell you they were mega dry!  Mint Julips works well, it scours them giving my lips a smoother surface for applying lipstick whilst leaving a little oil behind to moisturise.  I do find myself applying some balm ontop for extra hydration though.

It’s not a clever product, as many bloggers before me have poined out, you could easily make it yourself at home.  But I’m as lazy as I am flakey-lipped.

The new LUSH Lip Scrubs come in three flavours: Mint Julips (After Eights!), Bubblegum (Bubblegum durr) and Sweet Lips (Chocolate).  They taste far too nice for cosmetic products and it’s a struggle to keep them on your lips and off your tongue.  Or is that just me?

I love the product and hate the packaging, alhough I’m not sure how they could have improved it.  Have you tried these?

LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub – £4.50 available online and instore.

  1. I love it but I’m taking mine into the shop today because it’s not the same colour as yours and mine is a lot drier looking if that makes sense!

    I love this stuff…I use it in the mornings and evenings then slather on the carmex as I don’t feel like it really moisturises as much as I need.

    Oh and it tastes delicious – I was actually told in the shop to lick it off…as if I need any incentive! x

    I haven’t tried these, as I’ve been trying to stay away from LUSH (not for long!), but I imagine I’d eat it. I do the same thing with my Tarte lip scrub..if it has sugar in it, it’s in the mouth!

    I keep eating my Bubblegum one. It smells *exactly* like Snow Fairy, so now I can get my junkie hit at a time other than christmas!
    Really love this though, I use it twice a day as my lips are so parched..

  5. Lady Gray says:

    I used to have the Mint Julips one when it was B Never product but I never liked it. I’m loving the Bubblegum one now though.

  6. Rowena says:

    Its a bit dry I think a bit…crusty

  7. Glamoured says:

    oooh, I just bought this today but i haven’t tried it yet. I’ve sniffed it though, and am a bit worried I’ll be eating it with a spoon after my sandwiches at work tomorrow lunchtime.

  8. Rebecca says:

    I adore these and used to buy them when B sold them (at a higher price may I add) I came to the conclusion, I wasn’t going to make it myself, so I have to pay the price. And I’ll be honest, I couldn’t live without this in my routine, it really does get away any nasties on my lips.

  9. Maybe they could put it in a tube with a squeezy slanted applicator, like tube lipglosses :)

    Lips = love! This looks like something to add to my collection, not only because it’s lip related but also because it’s Lush related! Haha, there’s a Lush store somewhere in my town. I may be mistaken *shudders at the thought of not being able to buy this*.

    By the way, that last picture… I was tempted to eating the-

    😉 aha.
