I recently featured the ELF Studio Lip Exfoliator in a contest entry showing a hot pink lip using all ELF products. Well, after getting a lot of questions on what I thought of it, I`m finally ready to share my review. I`ll start with my lip scrub background - I always made my own with sugar and olive oil, so this was my first lip scrub product. I was excited to try it because as much as I loved making my own scrub, I`m just too lazy and don`t make the scrub often enough to keep my lip exfoliation regular. This lip exfoliator has changed everything - in a fantastic way! I can exfoliate any time of day, in a matter of seconds, and that simple convenience is much appreciated. Now, my lips have been softer, less dry and flaky and chapping has pretty much been non-existent. Having a regular exfoliation in my lip care regimen really improves how my lips drink up hydrating lip balms and lip colors. It`s amazing and I completely suggest everyone get one of these, especially since they only cost $3!
The bullet is a smoothing lip conditioner with tiny bits of sugar. The first application takes a while to wear down the lip conditioner enough to get to the real exfoliating part. The exfoliator has a gritty feel, so use a light hand when applying it. It tastes sweet, but I personally don`t lick it off.
Now, I also wanted to note a comparison with the Lush lip scrub in Mint Julips, which I obtained a mini sample of around the same time I was trying out the ELF Lip Exfoliator. The Lush scrub is $9.95 and comes loose in a resealable pot. I actually prefer the ELF lip scrub over the Lush one, main reason being it`s clean, quick and lasts a lot longer. Although my Lush lip scrub was in sample size, it dried out much quicker than expected and actually shrunk down a lot. I didn`t like that the Lush scrub was loose because I always got the particles under my nails and some sugar bits would fall down and make a mess.
I wanted to share this comparison because I hear a lot of people say they love the Lush scrub, and while it`s a nice product, I think the ELF Lip Exfoliator is much better and more affordable.
