Hope you're having a lovely Monday! I'm currently trying to force myself out of a state of not doing anything even slightly productive. I had exams in early/mid-January and as soon as they finished, I fell into a 2-week long period of relaxing and being lazy (not that I'm complaining). However, I have applications to finish, project presentations to write, and all kinds of important things that need done, so here's a quick little flash-review for a mostly productive Monday.
I read a few things about this lip scrub, and as a step I usually fatefully forget before applying lipstick, I thought this might be a wise purchase! MAC's Ruby Woo is one of my most used bits of makeup, and it is probably one of the most drying things I've ever put on my lips. Exfoliation is a real must. I thought I'd remember to do it more often if I had something specific for it!
It's got the consistency of granulated sugar with a little bit of liquid in it (something that can also be used as a lip exfoliant), and has quite a strong sweet smell. Its description says that "coconut and jojoba oils, sugar, sea salt and polenta are the perfect mix to buff your lips to perfection and leave them smooth and moisturised". I love jojoba and coconut oil for pretty much all purposes, and the salt and sugar give it the popcorn-y taste, which I really like. It also contains "popping candy" which is a nice touch when you lick it off. It definitely does leave your lips much smoother and is a good step before any lip product to make it go on a little bit better, especially in the winter months. The only complaint I have is that the smell could afford to be toned down slightly, it can be a bit sickly! You can get it for £5.25 online or in store.
