Speed Review: Bliss Fabulips Scrub

Back in November, I reviewed the Bliss Fabulips Softening Lip Balm and in the comments, Skin Scrubs Blogger (check out her wonderful blog if you haven't already) asked if I'd tried the accompanying scrub, Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub. I have tried it and today's review shares my thoughts on the product.
I don't generally like products in tubs, both for hygiene reasons and because I find them messier to work with but I didn't mind Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub being presented in one as it's intended for use in the bathroom and is something which you're going to apply very quickly. In typical Bliss style, the design is sleek and fun.
Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub has the same tempting vanilla and sweet orange flavour as the lip balm, making it an absolute joy to use. The texture reiterates this indulgence. It's a thick balm formula which melts into lips like a butter, along with finely ground walnut and almond shell, and granulated sugar for a gentle exfoliation. The exfoliating particules aren't as densely packed into the formula as many of the other lip scrubs I've tried but it's effective nonetheless.
Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub contains jojoba seed oil, olive oil, shea and cocoa butters along with vitamins A, C and E. Even after removing the scrub, I continued to feel the nourishing benefits from the balm style formula, which is a plus point when compared to others I've tried (which do the job of exfoliating but without the hydrating properties).
You only need to use a very small amount although I'd say that it's best to treat your lips with it regularly as the results aren't particularly long-lasting.
At £12, it is on the pricer side for a lip scrub but I really enjoyed using this and would recommend checking it out.

  1. Thank you thank you for doing this post! For some reason I thought it might be Fabulips that you were reviewing (or hoping) I shall put this on my shopping list!

    Oh btw £12 for a lip scrub is cheap for me, when I get my Sara Happ Ltd Edition ones I've spent up to £40 because I'm nuts like that!
