Lush The Kiss Lip Scrub | Review

lush the kiss lip scrub
The Kiss?...

Hi Lovelies 
Lush make some absolutely spectacular products from bath products, skincare and makeup and so far I have just loved all of their lip scrubs I have tried. I was pretty much sold on this lip scrub because I just loved the name 'The Kiss' and it matched quite nicely with the Valentine's Day collection, not only that inside of it has little hearts which is darn cute. ( they are edible too).

Lip scrubs are literally a must have to anyones makeup collection, they are great for keeping your lips soft and moisturised and another reason is they make matte or liquid  lipsticks last that extra bit longer. I remember applying liquid/matte lipsticks before using a lip scrub and it was so much dryer and cracked and looked dry before long, lip scrubs took care of that and keep my lipsticks looking smooth and easier to apply.

First Impressions 
I just had to get this because I love pink and the fact it had red hearts inside just made 'switch on' in my brain to actually get this. I love trying different seasonal products because they aren't available all year round. I didn't not want to get this incase I regretted not giving it a try. 

This lip scrub 3 essential ingredients which are; Sicilian Mandarin Oil , Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter and Fine Sea Salt. Now I wasn't sure once I got this home if these ingredients would go together well, I waited till I tried it to give it my full verdict.

When I opened the lid the first thing I could smell was the Sicilian oil which was had a nice sweet element to it. Inside also was bright pink with lots of red fine salt hearts.

Caster Sugar, Sunflower Oil(Carthamus tinctorius), Fine Sea Salt, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Red Edible Hearts and Soft Pink Glimmer Lustre,(Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose, PEG 400, Sodium carboy methyl cellulose, Corn Starch, Maltodextrin, Potassium Aluminium Sillcate, Colour 16255), Sicilian Mandarin Oil (Citrus Noblis), Almond Essential Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Amara), Cornflour (Zea mays). Geraniol, Limonene, Flavour, Colour 15850:1

lush the kiss lip scrub reviewFinal Thoughts
You know something I honestly don't like giving bad reviews because honestly I really love about 95%of Lush products. I will give you the good points about this but I will give my honest opinions on why this isn't my favourite too because you know something I like to be honest with my readers. 

The Good; As with all lush lip scrubs this is very moisturising and a little bit goes along way with this.

The not so good for me; Now I have tried this a few times and I do love the Sicilian mandarin oil but once you get the salt heart on lips, it doesn't taste very pleasant (my own personal opinion). I honestly can't say I like the combination unfortunately and either does my partner.

  1. This looks so good ! Wish it tasted better. Great review x

  2. I love Lush products. I bet this would make my lips really soft!

  3. I have never tried a lip scrub before. Shame you didn't like the flavour as it looks gorgeous

  4. Too bad the taste is unpleasant, it really does look like a great product

    oh i love that, i do love a good lip scrub. shame about the taste but then we can't have it all lol

  6. It looks just yummy!

  7. Joanna Victoria -x28 February 2017 at 18:33

    I've not tried any lush lip products before its a shame that this scrub don't taste that pleasant.

  8. I got one of their lip scrubs at Christmas and I'm hooked! They smell so good - I hope my local store still has this one in stock so I can give it a sniff.

  9. This looks and sounds great, it's a shame the taste is a bit off!

  10. I like these products but they are easy to make yourself with some sugar, honey etc which is very budget friendly

    I had seen this lip scrub in the Valentine's collection online and thought it was pretty. It's really too bad that it turned out to be one that you really don't enjoy, but even Lush can't get it right every single time I guess.

    I have the version of this which doesn't have the hearts in and I love it. I think the hearts would start to annoy me x

  13. Kissable Kreations1 March 2017 at 10:08

    Oh I love love love this product! And the smell! Good enough to eat 😏

  14. Lianne Thebrunettesays1 March 2017 at 13:17

    I'm not so much a fan of their lip scrubs, they're okay but I find them a bit messy sometimes.

  15. This looks adorable but shame about the taste, I've never tried a lip scrub before.

  16. Jodie Whitham1 March 2017 at 14:11

    Tempted to give it a go as you said it keeps lips in better condition. Mine often get neglected as don't always wear something on them. Have been dry and sore recently so thanks for the review :)

  17. Baby Isabella1 March 2017 at 19:57

    My mummy totally agrees. She has this scrub and even though it works it looks better than it tastes...or smells x

  18. Seeing Spots1 March 2017 at 19:59

    I really new a new lip scrub but I can't justify almost £6. But I did wonder what this tasted like. I never like trying the samples they leave out as too many sticky fingers go in the pots. I might have to try one of the other ones x

    It does sound like a nice product and it's a shame you didn't think it was that great. Sounds a bit pricey too.

  20. beautyqueenuk1 March 2017 at 21:26

    I love this, the little cute hearts are adorable in the scrub but Bubblegum will always be my favourite x

  21. Stephanie Merry2 March 2017 at 10:08

    My lips are in dire need of a scrub at the moment so I'll have to give this a go x

  22. Meenal Ranka2 March 2017 at 12:33

    Great and honest review. I have never tried lip scrub. May be I'll use it in future

  23. Shannon - Fit SlowCooker Queen2 March 2017 at 18:13

    I love the idea of a lip scrub!

  24. I need something like this - my lips are a mess at the moment from the cold conditions. They're chapped and sore and I need to hunt this down and sort my lips out

  25. This must be so good. Especially now when the weather hasn't warmed up yet, my lips really need some extra care.

  26. Rachel Simpson3 March 2017 at 22:13

    Oooh I have this too and thought the same about the hearts. I do love Lush's lip scrubs though! xo

  27. I love Lush lip scrubs but I have this one too and the hearts were not my cup of tea x
