Review: LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub - Good Enough To Eat!


I picked this up about half a year ago, but the summer weather was kind to my lips so I didn't get that much use out of it.  With the colder weather my lips have needed a bit more care. For a while now I've been making my own lip scrub from granulated sugar and olive oil, and it did make my lips smooth but it didn't taste great...enter Lush's Bubblegum flavour sugar lip scrub! 


It doesn't smell like my idea of bubblegum, but it very sickly sweet and billed as edible, but I prefer to wash it off. It's supposed to smell like the popular Snow Fairy shower gel, but I haven't personally tried that one. It actually works a lot better than my DIY olive oil & sugar scrub as mine was always a bit too runny. The Lush scrub is made of of fine-grained Castor sugar and jojoba oil. And it's vegan.



I'm not entirely convinced it's worth £4.50, but the price is in line with what Lush charge for other products, and now I have the handy little jar I can always use it to make my own concoction again! However the product does last for a long time, with 3-4 uses per week it would last a few months.  So I probably will repurchase when this one runs out.

I'll definitely be busting out the scrub to get ready for a twirl under the mistletoe this season!

  4. @Julie - It's such a scandal how the price almost doubles for things in Ireland, I want to move to Dublin soon but the cost of living there is so much (and I live in London!), and make up and beauty bits are out of sight! The Americans have it lucky - things for $10 there automatically cost £10 here, it's like retailers are unaware of the exchange rate mechanism! ¬_¬

  8. Thanks for this review. I have been wanting to try it out but I was a bit iffy about the bubble gum smell. I guess I will give it a try!

  9. This looks totally scrummy! I adore Snow Fairy so if this did actually smell the same then it would have to be my perfect lip product! Seems like everyone is doing reviews on Lush goodies at the min but I cant really afford to splash out on anything. Might make an exception for this and call it "medicine" for my lips - that way I'd have to buy it :)

  10. @Justine - I'm not completely in love with the taste, as I said it's a little bit sickly, it almost reminds me of the taste of Calpol! But it's hella better than plain old olive oil and sugar!

  14. It sounds yummy :) Try mixing lemon juice with sugar, that's what I use and it works great! Plus it tastes like lemonade and it's much cheaper than this ;)
