I bought this lip scrub along with a couple of other shower and body care essentials in my recent mini haul from my local Ulta store. It must be evident by the several lip balms and lip scrubs that I try and review that my biggest skin concern are my dark and pigmented lips and the dryness they suffer from. I try a lot of different lip products to battle the flaky buildup on my lips. Also, my lips need regular exfoliation every other day because they get dry and ruin lipstick application. The product in this review serves that need well.
Prep your lips to create a perfect pout. The Ulta Watermelon scented Lip Scrub helps gently exfoliate away dead skin!
My Experience with Ulta Beauty Watermelon Lip Scrub:
I have tried skincare and makeup products from Ulta previously and have enjoyed using all of them. Hence, I was really excited to try out this lip scrub because, first it is from a brand that I have started to enjoy a lot, and second, the packaging is really cute.
Ulta Beauty Watermelon Lip Scrub comes in a tub packaging which looks sturdy; especially I have an admiration for tiny packaging. This product contains sugar granules in a coconut oil and shea butter medium. Apart from that it contains Beeswax, Carnauba wax, Organic Pure Honey, Candelilla wax, Vitamin E etc.
I apply a small amount of this product on lips like a lip balm and then gently rub it for 30 seconds to 1 minute with a finger, as if drawing a circle, to exfoliate dead skin. I then wash off my lips with warm water. This scrub manages to remove dry and flaky debris from my lips. It has fine and gritty particles in it which help in exfoliating skin. This scrub leaves my lips soft and smooth without drying them out, the way a wet towel does. It is mildly abrasive on the lips, but does not harm lips as long as gentle motion is applied.
This scrub has a watermelon fragrance. It’s a perfect addition to my skincare routine because it is gentle yet abrasive on the lips and removes dead skin from lips without causing micro injuries. It preps lips for lipstick applications, especially makes application of liquid lipstick or those with dry formula easier. A small amount of this scrub goes a long way and will last a long time.
