Ok, I know we’ve all seen millions of reviews about this product. I personally have seen quite a few negative reviews and almost all of them have had a bad experience because they’ve not used it properly. I thought it might be helpful to do a sort of how to post. Now, I’ll say from the off that I really do like this product, it leaves my lips flake free and soft, but I do have reservations but I’ll go into that later.
The cost. It’s £4.99. I don’t think thats much tbh. It lasts a really long time.
Opening for the first time. It will no doubt have sugar around the rim. Run your finger all around the outside of the pot and clean it all off. Then use whats on your finger. Thats the outside of the pot cleaed up. Next time you use it, squish it all down in the pot firmly and that should sort any overflow/mess.
Thats it. That’s enough for one lip. It’s firmly stuck to my finger, no mess. Scrub it in and repeat for the other. Lick off whats left. And thats where I have reservations. I’ve seen people complaining about how repeating it several times a day would be bad for their teeth and diet. Once or twice a day should be adequate. However, what I’m totally not getting is the licking off bit. I’ve always though licking your lips wasn’t good advice since it’s drying. Maybe that’s just an old wives tale I don’t know, but licking your lips doesn’t seem the best idea for dry lips. I’ll carry on using this because I do like it, but I doubt I’ll buy again since I think licking it off aggravates flakiness….clever trick Lush! Ooh my lips are so flaky better buy some more scrub!
Totally unrelated but look at these beauties:
