Honest product reviews for the savvy consumer.

Tag Archives: lip scrub

I never realized that e.l.f. had more than one lip exfoliator.  My favourite one had big chunks of sugar in it and I thought this one was just a different flavour.  I picked it up at Walmart for $3.97 CAD.  I had it for awhile before I gave it a try and I was very surprised that this formula had a completely different texture.

Besides having a mint flavour this one had very fine granules of sugar imbedded into the product.  Although I loved the one I had always used, this one was so much easier to use.  It glided on easily and just a couple of passes on the lips and the job was complete!  The mint flavour and tingling was a nice bonus.  I removed the excess with a face cloth.  Although there are plenty of moisturizing ingredients, I still had to follow up with a balm after treatment.  There were also different flavours available and I’m not sure if they all have the same texture as this one but you better believe, I will be looking for them!  This is a quick, effective and inexpensive lip exfoliant, you really can’t pass this one by!


I decided to use up my points earned on Birchbox Canada before they shut down the Canadian shop.  I picked up this lip scrub for $10 CAD.  I had been wanting to try it for awhile and of course the cute package suckered me right in!  I had to chuckle at the Korean to English translation printed on the box “you are banned to use it on the part where you have a scar, eczema, or dermatitis.”

This lip scrub consists of walnut shell powder in a creamy, almost lotion like base.  It smells like a hand lotion and actually tastes like one as well (I don’t usually taste hand lotion).  I didn’t think I would like or that this product would work.  You apply a minimal amount on to the lips and rub in, the lotion part sort of disappates and initially I thought there wasn’t enough “grit” to scrub with, but there was.  When finished scrubbing, the product is removed with water or a tissue.  I used a tissue and it removed just fine.

My lips were surprisingly exfoilliated when I was finished.  I have used this several times and am able to use it without getting any into my mouth and tasting it.  Even though there are several oils listed in the ingredients, I still required a balm afterwards because wiping away with a tissue, really wipes everything away.  I probably won’t repurchase, but when I’ve used all the product up, I’ll use the cute container for a home made lip scrub of coconut oil and sugar.
