Product Review - Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub

This post is quite a sad one to write because I was really hoping I could rave about this Lush product. I've heard so many great reviews, but unfortunately I don't have many positive things to say.

I've been long awaiting the day I could purchase one of these babies because as aforementioned, I'd been expecting great things. For quite awhile now I've been using a DIY lip scrub recipe (blog post about it here) which does wonders to my lips, and to be quite honest with you (as you only deserve an honest opinion) my DIY recipe is much better than this lip scrub!

My first impressions of this lip scrub were great. The container it comes in is very convenient and aesthetically appealing, and the lip scrub itself looks quite nice. The smell of the lip scrub however...wasn't to my taste. Bearable, but more of an off popcorn smell (if that's even a thing).

The lip scrub claims to leave your lips 'soft, smooth and tasting delicious', which is not entirely true. My lips were indeed left soft, but not as soft as when I use my DIY lip scrub, and they certainly were not left tasting delicious. In fact I had to quickly rinse off the scrub from my lips it tasted so bad. Maybe I just have a weird sense of taste. Has anybody else found this? My lips were also left feeling a little sore, and not nearly as moisturised and silky feeling as when I use my DIY lip scrub.

Finishing on a positive note, I did enjoy the novelty of using a popcorn flavoured lip scrub and my lips were looking a little poutier and bigger than before, which I liked (I think because they were aggravated by the exfoliation of the scrub).

I'm keen to try the bubblegum lip scrub from Lush as I smelt it in the store and mmm, I can only hope it tastes as good as it smells (I only tried the Popcorn lip scrub because it came in a Christmas box I bought at Boxing Day sales for half price)!

I'm not sure if anybody else has had this experience with this particular lip scrub, but please let me know in the comments below!

  1. I totally agree! I loved the scrub itself but the scent and flavour is kind of off-putting! I have the Mint Julips and Bubblegum scrubs so I've pretty much stopped using Popcorn altogether, because it just isn't as pleasant. X

    1. So it's not just me...I wasn't sure if I was over-exaggerating or not, but I really didn't like this scrub haha! I'll have to try the bubblegum scrub.
