The Kiss Lip Scrub


When I first began collecting, using and reviewing Lush products, I always viewed releases like this as a bit of a novelty. While I never speculated that they weren't effective, I always saw them as something you'd buy to try out a few times and then lose somewhere in a cupboard, never to be seen again. However, once I got into the habit of slipping one of these scrubs into my bag, I have never looked back.

When Lush announced the Valentine's range this year, I went to refer to my blog only to find that there was no trace of the The Kiss Lip Scrub around. After initial confusion, I came to realise that last year's release was not vegan - the very reason why I never bought it or reviewed it in the first place. This year however it was, so I couldn't wait to give it a go and see what it would offer me.

My immediate thoughts is that this is perhaps the most beautiful lip scrub that Lush have ever offered - the bright, fluorescent pink competes with the original Bubblegum Lip Scrub, but the edible sequin hearts that decorate the surface make it a clear winner - one that looks good enough to eat.
Sharing its scent with the lip gloss of the same name, I find the fragrance of this much more appealing than the aforementioned product. The reason being is that this is far stronger and fizzier in the container - a release that is sure to attract anyone who enjoys their candy. While the gloss offers a gentle, creamy mandarin aroma, the scrub is more sherbety, and reminds me of the swizzels sweets you can get in various children's selection packs in the UK.

While you would expect all of their lip scrubs to be identical in texture, I found this one to be slightly smoother than any of the previous ones I have used. Although all of Lush's lips scrubs are made from a base of castor sugar, compared to the other variations, this one does seem less 'scratchy' on the lips. Some of the other scrubs almost felt as if they were made of granulated sugar, which is great for those who need a vigorous removal of dried skin, but not for those lips that are dry, cracked and sensitive during the really cold months.

Looking at the ingredients list, I think it is the removal of the jojoba oil and the inclusion of the cocoa butter that really gives it the perfect texture. You can feel the dry skin being stimulated by the scrub element of the product, but can also immediately feel the softening properties of the cocoa butter afterwards. Both ingredients work in unison with each other, and will guarantee to leave you with the softness lips going. 
To use, I simply scooped out a tiny amount with my finger - rubbing the scrub all over my lips in a circular motion. The best part is that you then get to use your tongue to lick off the excess sugar and this leaves your lips looking less parched and weathered, and feeling a whole lot better than they did a few seconds beforehand. To finish my routine, I would opt to use either a lip balm if my lips really needed it, or a gloss/tint/stick if I was heading out for the evening.

Although an occasional heart will find itself being massaged across your lips, they're very easy to remove, and they certainly didn't cause me any serious problems during application. Yes, all of Lush's lip scrubs can be a little messy to begin with, and you do occasionally end up with stray pieces of sugar smeared around your mouth, it really isn't that hard to contain to product to the lips, and by the third attempt I had a good system going for keeping the product contained.

For £5.95, this might seem like a big investment for such a small tub, but it will last you a very long time, even with daily application.The only issue you may face is you lack of willpower to not eat the entire pot in a single sitting - it is rather tasty and can be quite tempting at times.

These have quite a long shelf life on them (a little over a year to be exact), so I would highly suggest you grab yourself one before they're discontinued. This and Bubblegum Lip Scrub are probably my favourite versions of this particular line of products, and I can guarantee that once you introduce one of these to your routine, it'll be very hard to ween yourself off.

  1. Sounds tasty! I have read somewhere last year that people have found this lip scrub to be slightly salty (?) If you had to choose between this one and the bubblegum one, which one would it be? xx

However, it is seldom that this has happened to me and certainly doesn't take away from the lovely fruity smell that it omits. If I had to choose between the two scrubs, I think I would actually choose this one – it's much sweeter and fruitier!

    2. Thank you for your reply! I guess I'll need to try and head to a store to taste it :) There are so many products I want to try and buy (my wishlist is forever growing with lush products!) but not enough time and money for them :o I find your reviews really helpful in prioritizing some products in my list so thank you for your wonderful time in reviewing all these products when you are so busy! xx

  6. How I Got My Ex Husband Back..Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr  Aluya   can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr  Aluya Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at:  aluya.48hoursspelltemple@gmail.com  or whatsapp him on:  +2348110493039      you can also go through his website   draluya48hoursspelltemple.webs.com/

  15. My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found the Dr.Todd website online and I ordered a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 24hours. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.

Because if not for the help of Dr. Owo I would have been divorce from my loving home where i see my children and my husband play in happiness I called our home( HOME OF JOY) Dr OwoWhatsApp number: +1 (717) 473-7391   I don’t know what would have become of my marriage now because I loved my husband so much that I couldn't stand losing him.
