PUR X-Faux Lips: Plumping Lip Exfoliator Review

I received the PUR X-Faux Lips: Plumping Lip Exfoliator in my February 2018 Boxycharm Box!

What’s to love?

The PUR X-Faux Lips: Plumping Lip Exfoliator is super cool because it’s a lip scrub in a stick and it really works well.

I simply rubbed the product on my lips and rinses off. It exfoliates, plumps, hydrates and soothes with shea butter, raw sugar and exfoliating beads and I loved the results.

I think this is my new favorite product! It’s also Gluten-Free.

New Sephora Lip Balm & Scrub

I picked up a tube of the New Sephora Lip Balm & Scrub in Honey  Lip Scrub (exfoliating & smoothing scrub). It also comes in a Lip Balm in the following flavors:  Goji  (nourishing & protecting), Rose (nourishing & shining), Coconut (nourishing & soothing), Tangerine (nourishing & toning) and Almond (nourishing & moisturizing).

What’s to love?

This is an interesting product in that I wasn’t sure if it was a balm, a scrub or both because I ordered it online. So afterwards I figured out that the Honey variety is the only one that’s a lip scrub. The other flavors are lip balms. This was actually pretty confusing on the Sephora page.

Aside from the confusion I did like this product. It’s got a light honey scent and I did feel a nice very, very mild exfoliation when I applied it to my lips. This isn’t like a traditional lip scrub with large sugar crystals but a very mild feeling scrub.

Once the product was on my lips I pressed them together for a few minutes and wiped it off, although I think you could just keep it on it’s so light. My lips did feel very moisturized afterwards which was nice.

It is formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub Review

One of the items I received in my Target January Beauty Box was the New Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub in Fresh Peppermint!

What’s to love?

Lately I am all over lip scrubs. I’ve tried a few over the last 6 months and am so happy with the results and this new one from Chapstick is no exception.

The Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub contains Vitamin E and Coconut Oil for lip conditioning. I rubbed the white chunky sugar mixture onto my wet lips for a few seconds then wiped it off with a wash clothe and my lips looked and felt so much softer.

And the scent! Oh my gosh, the scent. I love peppermint and this lip scrub has the most perfectly creamy fresh peppermint smell ever. It’s on my desk right now and I’ve been taking a whiff all day.

Overall I’m now addicted to lip scrubs…which is a good thing…I think!
