When our lips are really suffering they can be dry, rough and flaky and one of the best ways to deal with this is to use a lip scrub
These scrubs are a great option… and they also contain nourishing ingredients to help moisturise and protect your lips… amazing!
Burts Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub
This is quite a gentle lip scrub but contains great nourishing ingredients, which is an added bonus. Unlike many traditional lip scrubs that have a sugar base, what makes this one quite unique is that it utilises honey crystals to gently exfoliate the lips, which I really like. It feels nourishing on the lips but still does the job – it also smells delicious. It’s gentle enough for regular use and feels great. The responsibly sourced Beeswax gently conditions and hydrates the lips. The Honey crystals gently slough away at the dead skin, honey has antimicrobial and healing properties to strengthen the lips.

ByBi – ‘Buffer’ Lip Scrub
The lovely scrub is pink and uses brown sugar to exfoliate the lips. It’s in a tube format, so easy to squeeze out the amount you use and apply to the lips.
It has great ingredients to soften and nourish the lips as it exfoliates including shea butter and sweet almond oil. It also contains cinnamon, which you can smell in the scrub, but the scent certainly isn’t overpoweringly cinnamony.
It’s not too oily either, which is probably due to the shea butter content, which is the first ingredient in the list, but the lips still feel nourished after use.
