Hungry? Well you might be after reading this post. 🙂
LUSH is offering a wide variety of fun treats for their holiday 2010 collection, some of which smell so nice you might want to consume them! But really, don’t.
Bon Bon Lip Scrub and Maple Taffy Lip Balm are two of LUSH‘s holiday offerings.
Let’s take a peek.
Bon Bon Lip Scrub is a perfect product for winter for me. I have always suffered from chapped lips, and in the winter it’s usually worse.
Bon Bon is Vegan and is infused with almond oil, which helps to soften and nourish chapped lips.
The scent is like fresh-cut lemons (minus the band-aid scent that comes with Lemony Flutter) and it’s very nice. They call it a “lemon sherbet scrub” and say that sherbet powder tends to be gentler than some other exfoliates.
I’ll admit I was a little nervous using this because this was my first experience with a lip scrub and I had visions of flesh being torn off my lips when I tried it. Silly me. It was definitely “scrubby” but also not harsh and didn’t hurt or tear anything. My lips felt smoother and softer after using it.
You only need a small amount so I can see this product lasting a really long time, which is great!
After you use Bon Bon you might want to slip on a nice soothing lip balm like Maple Taffy Lip Balm.
This balm was inspired by a Canadian tradition of rolling sticky maple syrup sap in snow and making a sweet treat from it.
Maple Taffy is made of 20% actual maple syrup, and yes, you can definitely smell and taste it! It’s really delicious. 🙂
Not only does it smell and perhaps taste good, but it’s packed with moisturizing goodies like Shea butter and Illipe butter, and it’s also Vegan.
The balm isn’t really a thick one, and it tends to be on the waxier side rather than creamy. I wore it the other day after using Bon Bon and it felt really nice on, not sticky or overly scented.
The only caveat I see with this is it smells so good that I might want to lick it all off, which of course defeats the whole purpose of it and dries out lips even more.
Yum. I love holiday products that not only smell great, but also work and both of these cover the bases (Go Giants!). I like and recommend both products, but I especially love Bon Bon.
