Mint lip combo.

LUSH Mint Julips lip scrub - £4.95
& Carmex Mint lip balm - £2.55

I thought today I'd share with you a mintylicious combo I like to use when my lips are sahara desert dry. I'm talking chapped and chunks of skin peeling away. Not pretty! I've always had dry lips, no matter what lip balm I use, nothing seems to work all that well. I'm also quite bad at remembering to re-apply throughout the day, so it's probably my own fault! 

The carmex lip balm is not one I would recommend personally, it's not all that moisturising and doesn't last that long on the lips. What I do like though is the tingle! and it's a great feeling after having just scrubbed your lips! 
I got the scrub on a whim as it smelt heavenly when I was wandering around Lush, I didn't realise it was edible at first so that was a nice surprise when I came to use it! (though I mainly wash it away as I feel odd eating it afterwards, especially with all the dead skin that might be around ... it does taste nice though! ;)) The scrub leaves my lips softer and a lot less chapped, making a great base for lip balm to get to work. I use the carmex straight after for the tingles and more minty goodness (obsessed) then use my regular lip balm of choice which is currently an anatomicals one!

I would love to try the Nuxe reve de miel balm to sort out my dry smackers, it'll probably sneak it's way into my next feelunique order soon, but shh don't tell ;)

  1. Thank you so much for the really helpful comment on my blog :) I use the LUSH Bubblegum scrub and love it - I also wash it off as eating dead lip skin seems so gross! I don't like Carmex either it isn't moisturizing enough, try Honey Trap by LUSH, its really waxy and stays put along with being very moisturizing! xx

  2. This looks like a lovely combo :) I have the bubblegum flavour too and love it...although I don't know how I feel paying so much for what is basically a pot of sweet sugar!

  3. Id recommend you try carmex in a tub. I have the tube and its not half as moistureising as the tub :) x

  5. I feel the same, when I run out I might just fill the jar back up with sugar and add a few drops of peppermint oil! easy ;)
