Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub | Review

Hi Lovelies, I hope you are all well?
In the spring and summer I like to take a little extra care with my skincare because my skin gets quite dry and irritated if I don't take extra care of it, so I try my hardest to keep on top of it and with my lips I tend to wear a balm when needs be and also a lip scrub before lipstick or whenever my lips feel dry and I have loved lip scrubs before including Lush's bubblegum lip scrub which tastes amazing and leaves my lips feel so blooming smooth and moisturised. 

Lush has a variety of different lip scrubs;  Popcorn, Bubblegum, Honey and the one I got in my recent haul from lush is called Mint Julips. Lip scrubs have a variety of different benefits and they are good for exfoliating dry and chapped lips, giving lips an even texture. They cost £5.75 which I think is pretty amazing because I still have mine which I bought at Easter last year and its still going strong and works wonderfully.

The packaging on the lip scrubs is all the same with the glass and hard plastic top and the only variation that is on holiday editions such as Christmas, Valentine's Day etc can have a different colour of label just like Kiss lip scrub which is a pink label rather than the lush label.

Caster Sugar 
Caster sugar is a very fine sugar and dissolves very quickly on the lips, its perfect as a gentle scrub to remove dead cells and brilliant at moisturising lips.
Organic Jojoba Oil
This is a liquid wax which comes from cold pressing seeds from jojoba scrub, the benefits of this is hydrating the skin.
Vanilla Extract 
This is one of the scents of the lip scrub and we all know how lovely vanilla can smell in cakes, perfumes and other makeup products. Vanilla is one of the most expensive spices after saffron.
Tagetes Oil 
This is from the stems of a plant called the mexican marigold (also known as T.minta) This is a natural preservatives that preserves cosmetics, perfumes and also flavouring foods too.
Peppermint Oil 
Has many benefits and has been used for 10,000 years but not only that it has a beautiful smell which is very refreshing.
This is colourless or a pale yellow and helps uplift fragrances to give them that extra smelling power that we all love from lush.

How to use
Put a generous amount on fingers tips and apply to the lips, I then like the pucker my lips together so my lips are covered in the lip scrub and that way I can feel the caster sugar actually exfoliate my lips. I usually do that for about a minute and either just lick it off (it tastes lovely!) or I just wipe it off with a wipe and it comes off very easily.

Once the lip scrub is off lips are moisturised and exfoliated and you can leave them be or it can be the perfect base for a balm, gloss or a lipstick too.

My thoughts 
I love the minty freshness of this lip scrub and it also has a subtle chocolate taste too which is very pleasant and reminds me of after 8s which reminds me I need to get some more snacks I am quite peckish ahah!! Even though this is amazing and will continue to use this as it is the bees knees at moisturising and exfoliating, the bubblegum one is still firmly my favourite.
