Hot Off The Shelf – LUSH Santa’s Lip Scrub

I decided to start with some festive inspired blog posts because Christmas is less than a month away – eeeek!  Santa’s Lip Scrub is a festive addition to the popular exfoliating lip scrubs from LUSH.  I reviewed the Sweet Lips lip scrub from LUSH a while ago so if you would like to check it out, click here.

When I first saw this lip scrub, I knew I had to have it.  I already own 2 lip scrubs from LUSH (Bubble Gum and Sweet Lips) and I love them.  My little pink Bubble Gum jar is almost finished, so Santa’s Lip Scrub arrived at the perfect time.  If you’re a Christmas-fanatic like me, then you know anything remotely festive gets the heart pumping.  This scrub is as red as Rudolph’s nose and when you unscrew the lid, there’s a pretty awesome surprise waiting for you.  I’m sure you can see from the photos?  When I saw the little edible hearts sitting on top, I gave a little excited yelp!  LUSH really does think of it all…

The skin on our lips is very thin and delicate, and therefore more permeable than the skin on our faces.  This means we can absorb water through our lips but can also lose moisture very easily.  The LUSH lip scrubs contain organic oils to provide moisture and nourishment to the lips.

The Facts

♥  The lip scrub contains organic castor sugar because it’s fine enough to delicately scrub the lips without causing irritation

♥  It also contains extra virgin coconut oil to moisturise the lips plus gives a unique slip to the product

♥  Extract of dates and cherries give it’s unique flavour

♥  Black pepper & aniseed oil are added to make it taste spicy and a little bit like Cola

♥  To add to the adorableness, LUSH added non-plastic (totally edible) hearts as decoration

Take a pea-sized amount, scrub your lips, then lick off the excess – YUM!

Price: R 85,00 for 25g.

I have incredible news, guys: LUSH South Africa is now ONLINE!  You can order all your goodies here and have it delivered to your door!

    I was wondering when South Africa would get an online Lush store; you must be so happy about it. When we got one here, I was ecstatic.

    I am a fellow Lush addict. 🙂

      Haha! I’ve been waiting for this online store to open ever since I had my first LUSH experience – can’t wait to place my first order! 🙂

    So happy that Lush finally launched online.

    • 28 November 2013 / 08:30

      Me too, Abby! My wallet isn’t too happy about it though! 😉

  7. 28 November 2013 / 05:04

    Now I totally WANT…maybe need this! Hehe!! I may just need to cave in and order online based off your recommendations!! 😉

    I love the little hearts, it just adds to the cuteness factor!!

    Thanks for sharing sweet Luzanne!! <3

      I really think you need this, even if just to experience the little hearts in the scrub!

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Lily! xxx

    I am sending my bf to Lush before Xmas – he must buy all my presents this year from Lush after all the posts Ive seen from you, Luzanne. 🙂

    Congratulations on the Garnier campaign, I saw your photo on their Facebook page. You deserve it!

      Haha – good idea! Any Xmas that includes a few LUSH products is a winner in my book! 🙂

      Thank you so much, Zee. I am pretty excited about it! x

      I am obsessed with their lip scrubs, my ultimate fave is the Bubble Gum one! I keep it in the shower and use it every single day!

    I also just saw they are opening in Durban in March!!! Year made!

      I KNOW! I saw that! You guys are SOOOOO lucky they’re coming to Durban! I wonder why it’s taking LUSH so long to come to Gauteng… 🙁
