Where lip scrubs are concerned, to me the biggest question is one of necessity versus quality.
Do we really need a lip scrub?
Do lip scrubs provide any extra exfoliation beyond what a swipe of the toothbrush would provide?
Does the thin, gentle skin of our lips even need exfoliation?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then the Mint Julips lip scrub by Lush is a good place to start.
It costs $9.95, smells and tastes great, and is a nice self-indulgent way to end ones skincare routine at night.
Indulgent is the operative word here.
I can’t say that using a lip scrub has added any value to the condition of my lips.
However, capping off your cleansing routine with a good scrub to the lips can turn a simple act of hygiene into a pamper session.
At the end of the day, we all need to feel pampered from time to time.
That’s when little additions like lip scrubs and cuticle oils can transform our dull routine into “me time!”
