Dry lips are something no one wants but it seems it’s inevitable, especially during the cold winter months. I like using a lip scrub or exfoliator at least once a week to keep my lips as smooth and nice looking as possible. The one I’ve been using recently is the ELF Lip Exfoliator.
The ELF Lip Exfoliator retails for $3 at Target or eyeslipsface.com. It comes in a sleek black lipstick type tube which makes application really easy. This product is basically a sugar scrub in stick form. The exfoliating particles are sugar granules that scrub away any dry or dead skin on your lips.
The scent of this product is absolutely amazing. It is a super sweet sugary vanilla scent and since the product is actually made of sugar, it has a sweet taste on the lips as well. The balm part of the product is infused with several different oils like jojoba oil and grape seed oil so after applying the product, even though it’s main purpose is to exfoliate, your lips are left feeling soft and conditioned.
This is not a gentle exfoliator by any means. If you press too hard it can be painful, so I suggest just lightly running this over your lips enough for it to be effective. It really does exfoliate the lips well, as well as condition. This product will leave your lips incredibly smooth and ready for any lip color!
I’ve never tried any of the raved about Lush lip scrubs, but I have tried one from The Body Shop in similar packaging to this ELF and I’d choose the ELF over The Body Shop one any day. It smells/tastes amazing, it works amazingly, and it’s super cheap!
What is your favorite lip scrub/exfoliator?
