First, apologies for the dearth of posts this past week. I have been busier than usual at work, and I was also preparing for a dance performance that happened last night. The excitement and busy-ness have settled for a moment, so I find myself this Saturday morning with a little time to ponder life’s pressing issues, like….Do I need a lip exfoliator?
Funny I should ask myself that question, because I never thought I did, until I used one. Ava Anderson’s Sugar Lip Scrub is a treat to use. It smells minty fresh, tastes like sugar (no big shock given the name) and is an effective but gentle exfloliator. The ingredient list (Shea Butter, Pistacia Vera Seed Oil, Sucrose, Menthol Crystal, Spearmint Leaf Oil) is simple and all natural. So much so that I could probably make this at home myself. But in reality I know that’s not gonna happen and I probably would never achieve the perfect texture of Ava’s Lip Scrub.
So is this little pot of joy a necessary step in one’s skin care? For me, probably not a necessity, but something I appreciate having in my armamentarium. I have been wearing lipstick more frequently and this certainly helps remove dry skin flakiness to create a smoother look. So give it a try if you are a lip exfoliator fan or if even if you’re just a little intrigued by a balm that makes your lips smooth, hydrated and a little more pout-worthy.
Ava Anderson Sugar Lip Scrub (as well as her all natural skincare line) is available at Ava Anderson Non-Toxic for $12.95.
