Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.
When it comes to lip scrubs I’m not very consistent in using them. I have never purchased a lip scrub, but when I feel my lips need a bit of a scrub I’ve been making one in my kitchen from coconut oil and brown sugar, and very tasty it is too! And if there was any left over I would use it to massage my hands and nails!
So when MUA Makeup Academy sent me their new Lip Scrub in a lovely package of goodies for my birthday last month I was just a bit happy and couldn’t wait for Mark to do his magic with the camera so that I could start using it! This is a lip scrub in the form of a bullet just like your average lipstick, maybe a little bit chunkier than your average lipstick. It contains Vitamin E to add moisture.
I’ve been using this every morning during my skincare routine, I use it after toning and before moisturiser, and that’s working for me. I then take the lip scrub and in circular motions I apply to the lips for a few moments, taking it over the lip line. It’s not too rough, and I’m not overly sure what the exfoliation ingredients are but I noticed some sort of shell powder is in there. It certainly does the job for me. After I wiped away the scrub with a dampened cotton pad, which I do with my homemade lip scrub, my lips felt just so smooth and ready for whichever lipstick, gloss or balm I choose. I don’t know if it was wishful thinking, but I’m sure my lips looked a bit plumper especially the top lip which has become thinner with age. I guess the exfoliation has caused the blood to circulate therefore making my lips appear plumper. I’ll take that thank you very much!

I hope you have a great week, lots of love.
