I recently received Julep's Sugar Smooch lip scrub when I got my Julep Maven May subscription box. If you read my post on this month's box, you know that I paid and extra $9.99 to add it on to my box since it wasn't included in the one that I chose.
The lip scrub retails for $14, but if you're a Julep Maven you can purchase it online for $11.20. I ordered it because I was curious to see how well it worked. But mostly, because I thought the packaging was adorable.
I've gotta tell you, I'm totally floored by how this product works and more importantly how it feels on my lips. To give you a point of reference, I've been using Lush's Mint Julips as my lip scrub and I loved it. Julep's Sugar Smooch lip scrub totally blew Lush out of the water.
Both scrubs have ingredients to moisturize your lips while they exfoliate. However, Julep's version seems to be more effective. The consistency is much moister than Lush, almost like a sugar paste. And when you apply it on your lips, it feels more soothing and gentle. It really does feel like butter, probably because it has shea butter in it. But the most impressive part is the soft moisturizing feeling it leaves behind when you rinse it off. The best description I can muster is that my lips felt like I had just applied lip balm or lip butter. Completely amazing. And it smells like caramel. Absolutely delicious.
Here's how Julep describes it:
This scrumptious blend of brown sugar, molasses, conditioning oils, vitamin E, and shea butter will leave your lips soft, smooth, and ready for color (and kisses).
I'd say it's pretty spot on!
