Thoughts on Ellana's Strawberry Vanilla Lip Scrub

#liptalktuesdays

Wearing dark and bright lipsticks (specially matte ones) can be a pain when you have dry flaky lips! Thank goodness for lip scrubs! What I love about Ellana's lip scrub is their all-natural ingredients so it's good for mommies-to-be like me!

Thanks to Glamourbox for including this in last month's beauty box, I was introduced to this wonderful product. I usually make my own lip scrub at home (you can find the recipe HERE), but discovering this product, I don't think I'll be makin' any more of my own!

I love that when you open the twist cap off, the smell is just so delicious! It smells more strawberries than it does vanilla and it's just so yummy! I had to fight the strong urge to eat it.
This lip scrub has a very good texture, and there is not much of a fall out of product when you apply it on your lips. Some scrubs are not as exfoliating containing rounded synthetic beads that are not safe, but this one has real sugar so it's very safe to use and it exfoliates real well!

Oh, and did I mention how delicious it smells?
I apply this scrub every night before bed time. I scrub for about 2 minutes and I rinse it off. And then I apply loads of CARMEX. And when I wake up, my lips are so smooth and supple! I love doing this every other night so that my lips are always prepared for whatever lippie I may want to wear... When I do go out! LOL
It's just a little bit messy to apply so best to apply this lip scrub near a sink. I made a mistake of applying this for the first time on my bed and I ended up with lots of uncomfortable sugar all over my bed with my husband accusing me of eating too much sugar. Hahaha!

If your lips are extremely dry and are flaking like cray cray, use this scrub everyday for a week until all of your flakes have disappeared. Always follow up with a lip balm or lip conditioner so that it will protect your lips.

Don't try to remove the dry skin by because it will wound your lips. The skin on your lips are very thin so it will bleed! So if your initial scrubbing doesn't remove all the flakes, repeat the process the next night and load up on petroleum jelly!
I love how this scrub makes the lips look youthful! It reduces the appearance of icky dry lines that appear when you wear hyper-pigmented lippies! On the photo below, I am only wearing a tinted balm and it looks very youthful and fresh!

I don't recommend using this on chapped lips, or with lips that are racked and are bleeding. Better to be safe than sorry!
