Friends, fans, lovers– Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, listen up because I have the best review for you today! The LUSH Mint Julips Lip Scrub was on my Christmas wishlist for a reason: it’s amazing! Keep reading to hear more! 🙂
Okay, so if you aren’t familiar with LUSH and their products let me give you a quick intro. LUSH is a super awesome company that is totally cruelty-free, vegetarian, and has a lot of vegan options. They make TONS of products from bath bombs, to shampoo, to makeup, to shaving cream, deodorants, etc. I have been obsessed with them even before I went cruelty-free because their products are just so amazing. My first post on this blog was actually a recap of some of my favorite LUSH products here if you want to glance at that too. Not only are their products amazing, but their ethics are too! LUSH has been known to speak up about the gruesome act of animal testing and constantly donates to a bunch of different charities and organizations. This is definitely a company that I want to keep supporting!
One of my recent new faves from LUSH is their Mint Julips Lip Scrub. I had heard amazing things about their lip scrubs before, but never actually tried them out myself. Whenever I am in the store, I am usually overwhelmed by all of the sweet smells and fancy products, that I always seem to forget to pick this little guy up. When my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for Christmas this previous holiday season I confidently said: LUSH PRODUCTS! The year before he gifted me a few LUSH products too, so why not make it a tradition? 😉 This lip scrub was my one request and the rest I let him surprise me with. Turns out he scored the last one in the store and thank goodness he did!
Right when I opened this up, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of product provided in the jar. Typically, stores rip you off and only put half of the product amount in the packaging, but not LUSH! This baby was packed tight. And as you can see in the photo above, even after a few uses, I have hardly made a dent. I usually grab some of the product and put it on my lips right before hopping in the shower as I find that it can be a little bit messy if you’re not careful. I rub my lips together for about a minute to create a nice exfoliation and then either wipe off the excess or lick it off. That’s right friends, you can EAT this it’s that good! And for safety, they do say you can lick it off but I wouldn’t recommend eating it straight from the jar haha.
Once you use this for the first time and smell the amazing peppermint chocolatiness you will find it hard to resist. It’s basically just like an Andes peppermint chocolate– YUM! I find that the sugar is super gentle when exfoliating and then once wiped (or licked) away there is a nice moisturizing lip balm left on your lips. I think the good thing about this lip scrub is that it gets the job done fairly quickly and gently. My lips are smooth and soft AND my lip products apply evenly and flawlessly after I have used this. I have used other scrubs before that are a bit abrasive and kind of hurt after using it. I tend to reach for those when I have super dry & chapped lips which isn’t too often thanks to using this lip scrub daily. Nothing really compares to how all-around awesome this one is though, in my opinion, and I am so happy to have it in my collection now.
LUSH currently has a few other lip scrub scent options right now and all of them are vegan (except for the Santa holiday one). I have smelled all of them in store and they are all pretty much to die for but Mint Julips will forever be my favorite. Definitely check it out next time you are near a LUSH store! You can even ask for a sample to take home before committing to the full jar. That’s just one of the wonderful things about LUSH, free samples!!!! <3
