"My boy lollipop, you make my heart go giddy-up, you are as sweet as candy, you are my sugar dandy..." 

Lush cosmetics are a little bit like Marmite. You either love them or hate them. We all know its the strong cosmetic scent you can smell half a mile away before you even get to the store that makes you say "yummmm" or 'urghhhhh" but as a cosmetic junkie, I love it. I have always been a fan of the popular bath bombs, bubble bars, soap slices etc especially around christmas time when a warm, colourful, glittery bath is very appealing.
With the winter always being extremely harsh on the skin, the lips suffer more than any other area as the skin on our lips is the same as that around the eye so it needs plenty of moisture and exfoliation to keep our lips kissably soft and supple. Whilst on a recent shopping trip I introduced a friend to this and also bought myself another one as I had run out and it just reminded me what a gem of a product this really is.

What is it exactly? If you didn't know, Lush Products are all handmade and use all fresh ingredients which are all natural or a safe synthetic and vegan friendly. This girly pink, bubblegum lip scrub clears dead skin and flakiness from the lips leaving them super smooth and moisturised. It is solely made from castor sugar, to scrub away the dead skin and organic jojoba oil to moisturise without being too greasy. Just take a little of the scrub (preferably do over a sink as sugar shall fall) and using your finger just rub over your lips to scrub away any dead skin on the surface. The best thing about it is that you can EAT it!! Yes, you can choose to either wipe away the excess sugar or just lick it off. It tastes yummy so eating it is always my option. Amazingly this is also under £6/€10 so a very affordable beauty must have.

It is also available in Mint, Chocolate and Popcorn flavours, but being me it had to be the bright pink, bubblegum, girly one. Like all Lush products they have a use by date sticker on them due to the fresh ingredients. This has about a one year shelf life, by which I am sure it shall all be used up by then.

It is really important that we take care of our lips as the eye is naturally drawn to them when looking or talking to someone. Signs of age naturally show around the lips and for the smokers out there, you shall know how smoking causes deep lines around the mouth. So this product provides the perfect base for lipstick, as your lipsticks shall go on smoothly without that horrid patchy look that can occur especially when wearing bolder shades. I strongly recommend this product as its very simple, cheap and highly effective. Compared to higher priced brands of lip scrubs out there, this wins hands down. 
Available from all Lush stores and online here priced around €9.45/£5.25/$9.95.
