Are Your Lips Lush?

Hi my loves, hope you are all well. During the Winter my lips become so unbelievably dry and chapped, to the point where the skin peels and my lips become painful at times. I have tried the whole process where you take a toothbrush and brush your lips gently with the bristles to remove dead skin. I found this to be a method which is far too abrasive and it just wasn't that effective either for me.

Then I rediscovered the most amazing product which I thought I had completely lost!

This is the Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush. I've been using this for about two years now, but I had misplaced it about six months ago, which is why I tried out the toothbrush method for my lips. This scrub is probably one of my most favourite products from lush ever!

The ingredients of the scrub are fairly basic: Castor Sugar, Organic Jojoba Oil, Colourings and Flavour. It smells like sweet bubblegum (hence the name) and I prefer it to the other Lush lip scrubs which come in the flavours "Mint Julips" and "Sweet Lips".

You take a little of the scrub on to your finger and gently rub the product into the your lips to scrub them. When I use this I can actually feel the dead skin being removed from my lips! The oil in the scrub helps to keep your lips moisturised which I love and after using the scrub my lips feel super smooth and pain free. I generally use this 3-4 times a week during the winter, or just whenever my lips feel overly chapped and in need of a little TLC. The tub is a mere 25g but is packed with the product and lasts me a whole year or more! You can purchase the scrubs for £4.95 a pot from any Lush store or from their website here.

Have you tried this or any of the other lip scrubs available from Lush? How do you soothe dry, chapped lips during winter?
