I am super conscious about keeping my lips healthy (if you caught this post, you understand my history of lip woes.) I stumbled upon this amazing little delicious miracle worker at the end of a quick LUSH haul several weeks ago (those little point-of-purchase products at the register get me every darn time.)
After a little in-store sampling, they made a quick believer out of me.
After taking the tiniest little bit on your finger, simply scrub scrub scrub all the dead, rough skin from your lips, then lick off the excess –um, yum.
This stuff is a great exfoliator for creating a perfectly smooth lipstick base. On the other hand, if it’s a simple chap-stick-and-go kind of day, it brings out the natural coloring of your lips under your lip balm. (I wouldn’t use it alone, though. Always follow up with a little of your favorite lip balm to avoid drying effects later, FYI.)
It’s made with 100% natural (delicious) ingredients (like so many wonderful LUSH products are), which steals my heart all the more.
Win-wins all over the place, I tell you.
I remember there being other flavors, too, like Bubble Gum (if that’s your thing, personally I don’t do well with Bubble Gum flavored anything that isn’t actually Bubble Gum) but right now I can’t remember the others. Mint was just my favorite.
I realized this is the first time I’ve introduced a LUSH product to Daily Sprinkles, so let me give you the short story if you don’t already know:
This company rocks.
Zero animal testing, handmade products (with little labels that actually tell you whose hands made your product specifically –so unbelievably cool and personal), fresh & safe & natural ingredients, and on & on & on. Seriously, go here for the full company picture.
For a million reasons I support LUSH, but the main reason I’ve been an obsessed and loyal LUSH fan for years: the products are incredible and also the best smelling things I’ve ever smelt. If I could just capture the aroma of the whole store, I would turn it into a candle, room spray, deodorant, perfume, and shampoo and use them all all the time.
Long story short: go visit LUSH, grab a little lip scrub, and keep your pout holiday-red-lip-ready all winter.
