What do you have planned for the weekend?
If you have been with me for a while you know I like to do throwdowns…friendly competition between two or more products, one being more expensive and one being very affordable. So today I have a Lip Scrub Throwdown that you don’t want to miss. Keep those pretty eyes on the screen.
Lip Scrub Throwdown
As you can tell in the pictures I have not tried every lip scrub out there, I have tried 2 well actually 3 but that one was so bad it remains unnamed. So this throwdown is just between these two lip scrubs, I’m sure there are way better lip scrubs out in the beauty world, but I don’t own those so I’m not going to talk about those.
On with the competition.
Lip Scrub Throwdown
Lush’s Bubblegum Lip Scrub: Let me tell you this is a really great lip scrub. It is all natural and very edible as well (it tastes delish). It is handmade which I really love. Lush Lip Scrubs come in several different flavors, but I’ve only tried Bubblegum, I like the sweetness of it. This is a pretty abrasive scrub, which is really great for the colder months when you may have really dry lips. Use this before going to bed and put on your favorite lip balm and you will have the softest lips the next day. | $9.95
ELF’s Exfoliating Lip Scrub: I found out about this lip scrub through Pinterest, and when I saw the price I went to Target the next day and bought it. I absolutely love that this comes in a lipstick tube. No messy sugar falling out of a pot and getting everywhere. This is literally a solid stick with sugar granules in it. Pure genius. This is absolutely perfect for your purse or desk at work and for on the go exfoliation. It only comes in one scent and to me it smells kind of like brown sugar and butter, which is a pretty good scent to me. It isn’t as abrasive as Lush’s and the first time you use it it takes a few swipes on the lips to actually get to the scrubby part. | $3.00
Honestly this one was really hard! They are both super great products, but it just depends on your lifestyle. If you want to exfoliate your lips in a hurry with no mess then ELF takes the cake. If you want to get a deep abrasive scrub Lush is your girl. For me personally I think I’m going to give it to Lush because of how good of a job it does. ELF was a really really close match tho, and honestly I have been reaching for it more lately. I will probably just buy both of them, because sometimes a girl has to exfoliate those lips in the car. :)
