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?
