Want smoother, softer lips? Just like any other exposed skin in the winter, your lips can get rather dry and chapped. And just like any other part of your body that gets dry and chapped, it’s best to start with a good exfoliator before getting into the deep down moisturizing. But how do you exfoliate your lips without getting all that sh*t in your mouth? Easy! Make a lip exfoliator that you can eat! Enter the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, a delicious smelling and tasting scrub made of all fresh ingredients!
A perfect blend of fair trade sugar and oils with some great vegan colours and flavours thrown in. The great part is that the Jojoba Oils are also essential for moisturizing your lips! It starts the moisturizing process while exfoliating! Just put a bit on your lips and rubs your lips together. The coarseness of the sugar will slough off any dead or chapped skin and leaves your lips smooth and soft. The best part of it all? You can lick it off when your done! It’s 100% edible.
Now I’m not the biggest bubblegum fan, but rather than being incredibly sweet, this lovely lip scrub has a slip minty freshness that I actually really love! It’s a little bit like melting cotton candy in terms of texture and it’s quite fun!
Soft lips and a fun little treat! What are your favourite ways to keep your lips soft and smooth in the winter?
It certainly seems like it’s been awhile since I’ve done this. Another month has whizzed past us quicker than I care for. But I’ve missed a few Top 5s over the past few months and I have quite a few favourites to catch you up on. So buckle up and bare with me for a sec here while I sort out my thoughts.
Now, as I’ve already packed up the majority of my belongings, and I’m moving in two days, I really only have the essentials left to photograph and talk about for you at the end of this month. But that’s okay since the essentials are always the most used and therefore easily the top products used in a month. If you’ve followed my musings and writings for quite some time now, you’ll remember the days of minimal makeup and early mornings back when I was travelling and working in the food industry. Well, guess what? After 9 months of dabbling in a different field I’m back in the food service game and back to those days of minimal makeup and early mornings. It has it’s pros and cons.
My first favourite over the past few months has been the Tarte CC Undereye Corrector , which I’m shocked I haven’t talked about more. I’ve been absolutely in love with this product. It really is a miracle worker for those dark under eyes. Keeping it simple, I’ve been making use of the Maybelline Brow Drama to define and tame my brows on a daily bases. Next, the hair. Although nothing beats my Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifying Cream, I’ve been using and enjoying the Marc Anthony Curl Defining Lotion for softer waves for my work days and early mornings. With the changing weather my skin has had trouble with some pretty harsh dryness so the Lush Breath of Fresh Air has been great to prepare my skin for the harsh cold and wind. And finally, with a mix of dry skin and tattoo healing I’ve been attached to my Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion; seriously, it’s been a lifesaver.

With combination/dry skin it’s really important to keep my face balanced and moisturized. With the coming of the colder months I find my face puckering the moment I get out of the shower; desperate for some sort of moisture in the harsh cold and dry environment. I’ve tried and tested many different daily moisturizers and toning waters including this, the Lush Breathe of Fresh Air Toning Water.
This cooling seawater based formula includes caarragern, rose absolute, and aloe water with soothing essential vitamins and minerals and is blended for smooth, balanced skin. It’s made for all skin types, but I definitely see the benefits more for those who have had their skin ravaged by the elements. Even though I don’t fall within that category, I definitely reap the daily benefits from this bottle. I simply spray it directly on my face right out of the shower everyday. I love the feeling of the toning water and I absolutely love the smell. It’s a necessary step to my daily routine to ensure my face is fresh and smooth all day! Wipe the excess away with a cotton pad for daily moisture, or leave on your face to tighten your pores.
My single qualm with this wonderful product is the spray. With other toning waters I’ve used the spray range covers my whole face easily, so only a spray or two are necessary. But with this bottle the spray is very direct and strong and rather than one spritz covering my whole face I need to use quite a few sprays for that range. In the end, since I use a cotton pad to remove the excess, I simply take a moment to use that cotton pad to spread the product around, so its not a big deal. The results are worth it!
So if your looking for something to make your face quickly feel moisturized in an amazing smelling fresh way, check out some of the Lush toning waters.
