Advantages Helps relieve dry skin
Disadvantages Feels like you've just eaten a doughnut, hard to resist licking your lips!
With the cold spell every year comes…for me at any rate…dry lips. This year has been particularly unforgiving and so I have really tried my best to stick to my resolution of regularly applying lip balms to alleviate the problem, rather than my usual trick of aggravating the problem by biting my lips.When I heard through the grapevine about Bubblegum Lip Scrub from one of my favourite places ever – Lush – I decided to treat myself. And I have recently done just that.
All of their products are suitable for vegetarians, and the vast majority are suitable for vegans too. This is all helpfully indicated on their packaging, which is, as it happens, rather environmentally friendly as packaging goes. They encourage recycling of their packaging, using incentives such as a free face mask for every 5 black pots you return to the store.The products are responsibly labelled so that you can exactly what goes into the product, when it was made (and who by) and it has a best before date on it.
As packaging goes it’s fairly sturdy – I don’t relish the prospect of finding this smashed in my bag, but it feels fairly secure and I’m not too worried about it breaking. You can appreciate that I won’t be dropping this off the roof of my house or chucking it under a bus to test its durability, but I think it’ll take the odd bump or knocking in your handbag.
The product itself looks, to all intents and purposes, like sugar with bright pink food dye in it. And a quick look at the ingredients reveals that that pretty much is what we’re talking about. It’s castor sugar, to be precise, which contains flavouring and colours, as well as organic jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is known to be an excellent moisturiser and is used in many lip balms for this reason. It’s also soothing and will help relieve dry lips.
If you like the scent and you liked Snow Fairy (as I did) then you won’t be disappointed by Bubblegum, although the smell may prove too sweet and perhaps even too artificial for some.
