If you remember last year I visited a LUSH store for the very first time and I only purchased the LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub because it was pretty pricey- $9.95 for a small .9 oz container. I heard so many raves and positive reviews for this scrub that I knew I had to try it!
Here's what LUSH says about the product: "Our sweetest confection exfoliates lips smooth, prepping them for your favorite lip color or balm. A blend of exfoliating Fair Trade sugar and moisturizing jojoba oil, this lip scrub is sure to leave your lips enticingly soft and satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time! Scrub Bubblegum over your lips (be sure to lick off the excess) and then apply your favorite lip color for a flawless finish."
I am very impressed with the quality of this scrub, first of all the scrub itself is not hard or abrasive at all, it's actually quite gentle on the lips. Although it is gentle, it does a wonderful job in removing dead skin cells from your lips. In addition, this scrub exfoliates your lips so perfectly that immediately when you rub your lips together you already feel the softness and smoothness of your lips even after using this scrub after 1 time!
How to use: I use a q-tip and scrape off a little bit of product from the jar and I place it on my lips, I then slowly rub my lips together (sort of as if you had chapstick on). Once I do that for 5-10 seconds, I get a wet napkin and wipe the scrub off (I've seen people lick the scrub off which is safe but I think it's a bit gross to lick off your dead skin).
Is it safe to eat? I am not a health professional but I am just going off of what LUSH and customers have stated, which is that it is ok to lick off this product and actually eat it, and that's because its ingredients are all natural. In fact LUSH is a company which not only does not test on animals, but they have all fresh ingredients, organic fruit and vegetables, in their products!

I read a lot of reviews of people basically saying this scrub is a rip off because all its made out of is sugar. Let's be honest here, a lot of us are not experts in DIY ("Do It Yourself" basically making our own products) yes you can make a similar scrub at home for a lot less, but for me I'm not much of a DIY person and I love the fact that this tastes and smells just like bubblegum (which will be hard to re-create with your own ingredients).
My overall opinion: I am glad I purchased this lip scrub, my lips have never felt so smooth! It has helped me with my chapped, dry (winter) lips, and although it can be messy is does an excellent job in exfoliating the lips! Is it worth the price? Honestly....YES, the reason is because I purchased this in November 2012 and I just finished it this month July 2013...8 months worth of scrub for $9.95 is pretty amazing! To check it out make sure to visit a LUSH store or LUSH website!
Will I re-purchase? Not anytime soon, reason is because I still have my ELF Studio Line Lip Exfoliator which I highly recommended back in October 2012 and I've been neglecting it since I started using the LUSH scrub. In time, I will eventually purchase another LUSH lip scrub, but I want to try their other flavors which I believe are popcorn and mint juleps.
Have you tried this scrub? What do you think about it? Are you into making DIY scrubs? Do you have any affordable drugstore alternatives?
