LUSH Cosmetics Lip Scrub | Bubblegum - Review

LUSH Cosmetics Lip Scrub | Bubblegum, $9.95
When it comes to my lips, I set aside a little bit of time everyday for some needed TLC. I have always had incredibly dry lips. No matter how much water I drink or lip balm I use, my lips were always in some state of cracking and peeling. That is, until I was introduced to today's sugary sweet product!

The LUSH Cosmetics Bubblegum Lip Scrub is a fantastically sweet product made from real sugar to help get your dry lips sorted. Boasting jojoba oil to soften and condition the lips, Bubblegum is a fun, edible addition to any beauty routine. You just dollop out a pea sized amount, apply to the lips, scrub it around, and lick it off. Simple! And best of all? It's the same scent as LUSH's Snow Fairy, so you can have a little Christmassy fun year round!


I absolutely love the Bubblegum Lip Scrub! I was a bit wary at first. I mean, is sugar really that awesome to scrub your lips with? Won't it just make them sticky? But this product has completely changed my mind. I can't get enough of the scent, frequently opening up the little pot when I pass by just to give it a sniff. And the taste is so amazing, I'm surprised people don't just eat the stuff!

I use this before I apply any sort of lipstick to get the smoothest surface possible, and I have to say that my peeling lip days are finito! My lips feel soft and supple all day long, and there is definitely no sticky residue afterwards even though this is essentially flavored sugar. Also, let me just praise the packaging for a second. The little glass jar LUSH's lip scrubs come in is adorable, and gives the product a much higher end feel than it is.

When it comes to downsides for this product, I only have two. First, LUSH's lip scrubs can be incredibly messy, which means you frequently find bits of product on your counters and in your sink. This leads me to downside two, which is the price. At almost ten bucks a jar, you don't want to waste any of the lip smoothing sugar. You want to make it last as long as possible. If only there was a better way to extract it from the jar and apply it than to dip your finger in and dig some out.

My one piece of advice is to use this scrub BEFORE you put on your makeup. I made the mistake of scrubbing my lips after I'd put on my face makeup, but before I'd put on my lipstick, and the scrub got all over my upper lip and chin. I had to wipe it off with a soft towel which meant having to touch up some of my already applied makeup. So just be aware of this!

In the future, I'll definitely be repurchasing Bubblegum and, of course, other flavors to test out! If your lips are in need of some nourishment and exfoliation, I absolutely think this is one product to give a look.

Have you given the LUSH Cosmetics Bubblegum Lip Scrub a try? Which one is your favorite?
