Just because it is summer, it does not mean your lips will not chap. They can get dry and flaky just like in the winter time. But with lip scrubs, you can combat this. There are plenty of lip scrubs on the market, but which one works best? I am going to take a look at a low end scrub and a high end scrub. Find out which one will give you the most bang for your buck.
Let’s start with the high end; Sara Happ in the Almond Creme flavor. This scrub is in a 1 oz. tub and has been dubbed ‘the one luxe balm.’ One whiff of this lip scrub and you will be hooked. I found it to have just enough grit to scrub off any dead skin, and it contains just enough moisturizer to keep your lips soft. Now with this lip scrub you do not necessarily need an extra lip balm after wiping off the scrub. But out of pure habit, I use a light lip balm, and my lips are always baby soft afterwards.
The next lip scrub falls on the low end; ELF Lip Exfoliator. This exfoliator is in the shape of a tube of lipstick. You simply rub the exfoliator back and forth across your lips and wipe with a damp cloth. Finally, rub some lip balm over your lips. This exfoliator is good, but not great. It is not as gritty as the Sara Happ scrub, and you do need to follow up with a lip balm. But for the price you pay for this lip scrub, it is not too bad.
Now I know it is expensive, but I really like the Sara Happ lip exfoliator. It has a better flavor and more grit to help my lips be very soft. It retails for $24.00, and may be purchased at Amazon. ELF Lip Exfoliator is good if you are on a budget. It retails for $3.00 and may be purchased at www.eyeslipsface.com, WalMart and Walgreens.
