So, true story: Just the other day I was listening to a podcast and they were talking about, of all things lip scrubs. Lip scrubs are new to the beauty scene and up until this set I have never bought one. I mean with all the scrubs out there, who would think you need one just for your lips?
After buying this I kinda like it.
That's not to say that I couldn't use one of the multiple scrubs that are sitting in my shower right now. But it's nice to know this will be a little bit more gentle than the one that I use on my legs.
That being said, I did what many people do after listening to an interview and checked out the product. I checked out the website knowing that I had listened all the way though about the development of the product.
I wasn't quite ready for the sticker shock: $22. Now, I didn't order and won't be ordering for quite some time (maybe after I win the Powerball). So I'll keep my eye out for a more affordable option.
In fact, I picked this up last year, but didn't try it until they were long out of stock on this duo.
But I liked it enough to pick it up again this year.
The balm has a smell that I think is closer to orange sherbert than most balms I've tried. But it's pleasant and seemingly moisturizing. My lips are always dry this time of year and this seems to do the trick to make them less parched.
My only complaint about this product is actually about the scrub. And it isn't about the scrub itself. It's about the size. I wish it was about double the size.
With a product that is gritty, you tend to use more than the balm which is thick. Since the purpose is to exfoliate, I tend to use a higher proportion to the balm. The balm seems to provide a temporary moisturized feeling.
Which means I always run out of the scrub long before the balm. But being that this duo doesn't cost what many designer products do, I won't complain too much. This duo is well packaged, would make for a nice gift, and is priced at $3.99.
