So, even though I see no end in sight for this cold, gloomy weather, I have to say that this Winter has really wreaked havoc on me and I really am looking forward to Spring. For me, Winter brings nothing but too much cold, chapped lips, dry skin, and the obsessive need to wear ten layers of clothing (literally). I get so frustrated because every year I try to find something that will take away some of the horrible dry skin and chapped lips, but nothing proves worthy (story of my life!). While I'm still looking for something that will heal my hands, I am happy to say that I think I've found a product that can cure my unfortunate winter lip situation:
I have been a fan of Lush products for awhile, and I tend to try to convert friends into becoming as fanatic as I am, but up until recently I had only used their Bath Bombs. A couple of months ago, I was in my local Lush store (after having applied some lip balm for the umpteenth time in an hour) when I spotted this little gem. Immediately, I began to hope that this might relieve me from my chronically chapped lips but I wasn't entirely convinced I wanted to spend the $8.95 on it.
After shopping around the store a bit and coming back to the Lip Scrub for the fifth time, the girl working asked me if I wanted to try the scrub...I said yes before she could finish her sentence. She explained how to use it, and that it was actually edible (it tastes sooooo yummy), so I slathered what I thought to be a tiny bit on my lips and waited for a miracle to happen. Well lovelies, a miracle did indeed occur.
After wiping away the scrub, I found that the layers and layers of dry skin that I was using lip balm to try and heal on my lips were completely gone. My lips were so smooth and soft that I thought they transplanted another pair onto my face. It was unbelievable! Needless to say, I snapped this up right then and there.
I've had this now for a few months, and I have barely used any of it up. Literally, a minuscule amount is all you have to rub on your lips, and after washing it off (or eating it, whichever you prefer lol) and applying a little lip balm to keep your new smooth lips that way, there is really no need to use it more than maybe once a month. This, coming from a girl whose lips were flaking every other day (yes, with continual use of moisturizing lip products). Even though I was leery of the $8.95 the scrub was in my store, I'm glad I took the plunge and got it because it will last me forever.
This lip scrub comes in three different flavors, and is all natural (like all of Lush's products). If you want to know more about Lush and their products here's the link:
I highly recommend this product, but I would love to hear your thoughts as well. Have you used this product to smooth your dry lips, or do you use something else? Let me know what works for you!
Thanks so much for reading!!!
