It’s time to pucker up and get ready for some mistletoe action. You can’t be getting smoochie and festive without a good pair of smackers, so if yours are a bit dry and in need of attention you’re gonna want to get down to your local Lush store and pick these up. The basis of smooth, supple and healthy lips is regularly exfoliating them to remove any dead, dry and manky skin. You can do this with a toothbrush in circular motions, but if you want to put a bit of glamour into the routine then this lip scrub is right up your street. It contains actual popping candy (like the stuff you ate when you were a kid) so it’s pretty darn awesome! The grains of sugar work to gently exfoliate the lips, melting away rather than abrasively scrubbing off layers of skin, whilst the popping candy gives you a subtle sensation (as well as the giggles.) When I washed this away I could still hear it popping away in the pipes! It smells really sweet and even tastes good, so there’s no reason to not use this regularly.
To finish off smooth lips you’ll need a little slick of lipbalm. This beautiful little tin is so diddy it’s perfect for carrying around with you. I love the name ‘Celebrate’ and the little gold dusting of glitter on the top to create the effect of pink champagne… Perfect for the party season! The lipbalm itself is very thin, meaning you only need a little bit to slick over your lips, but not at all greasy or heavy. The colour is very subtle, a soft golden sheen running under the pastel pink, so you can wear it alone or over the top of a colour. It’s not extremely moisturising, but it does give a little bit of softness to lips – you wouldn’t reach for it in a lip emergency, but you would if you wanted something pretty! It contains almond oil, organic jojoba oil and camellia oil to moisturise as well as icing sugar, cognac oil, grapefruit oil and lemon oil to make it taste great. Looking great and tasting great – a winner.
