REVIEW: e.l.f. Studio | Lip Exfoliator

Monday, 9 March 2015

Though March is ushering slightly warmer weather and more frequent visits from the sun, it's still far from warm, and the persisting harsh winds are still paying havoc on my lips. I love my Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub: it's tasty and it gets my chapped lips nice and smooth. The problem is that it's not very practical. Enter e.l.f Studio Lip Exfoliator: all the benefits of a lip scrub in a handy lipstick shaped tube. 

I really like that all I have to do is twist up, give my lips a quick swipe, wipe away with a wet cotton pad or muslin cloth, and I'm done. Okay, so maybe it's not as fast as simply eating the lip scrub like you can with the Lush one, but I really like the fact that I don't have to dip my finger in a little pot, and the application is completely mess-free. Infused with Vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, grape and jojoba oils, this lip exfoliator leaves lips smooth and moisturised. Followed by my favourite lip balm, my lips are instantly lipstick ready (or as ready as they're ever going to be - my lips don't seem to take kindly to lipstick).

I'm not a massive fan of the taste, which is quite sweet and not in a good way, but most of it goes away when you wipe the product with a cotton pad, and it's a small gripe compared to how soft and moisturised the product leaves my lips feeling. I've been using this for a good month now, and I would 100% recommend this for anyone on the look out for an affordable, easy-to-use lip exfoliator. 

Do you use a lip scrub or a lip exfoliator? What's your favourite?
