Review: LUSH Pow Wow Lip Scrub


I went and bought a few little bits yesterday and this was one which i have never tried before but with it been extremely cold in Newcastle at the moment my lips are getting all flaky and chapped so i decided to give it a go.

Lush do a range of lip scrubs including bubble gum, Sweet lips, Mint Julips and Pow Wow. I smelt them all in the shop and this one jumped out at me the most it just smells totally AMAZING like kind of Limey and i LOVE lime lol. Where the others smelt a little sweet and sickly for my taste and i would have probably tried to eat the mint one but i would have chose that if the Pow Wow was not there.

The other thing that made me chose this is that when i was reading the ingredients the first one on the list was POPPING CANDY! Well that was me practically sold already because i love the stuff  :)

This is a limited edition for the festive period however i could still get it in the metro centre so?

The packaging is really nice i think with a little round sturdy glass bottom and a secure Black plastic lid so you do not get any leaks.

The product its self i was quite impressed with because i love the colour and the smell however it is a little tricky to use at first when your pot is full because there is quite a few bigger lumps in the pot so do it over a sink ;) lol. However once you get the swing of things it gets easier. You do get the popping candy sensation a little bit it tends to be if you get one of the bigger lumps i have found so far and that is a nice tingly feeling on your lips.

The out come is acceptable i would say it left my lips feeling softer and some what smoother and especially if you accompany your lips after with a lip balm for example this adds to the results.

The price was a little shock i was expecting like £2.50 for something of that size say but noooooo it was like £4.95! I thought it was a little pricey for what it is personally but i do however like the product as a whole :)
