MINT JULIPS LIP SCRUB BY LUSH
















As soon as the colder months arrive, I start having problems with my lips. They become really dry and flaky, and only the scrub can help me. I've been using the Mint Julips one from Lush for quite some time now. What I love about it is that it does its job, it exfoliates your lips and makes them really soft. Apart from that, it also smells and tastes great (not that I eat it, eating my dead skin cells sounds quite disgusting to me).

Ingredients: Castor sugar, organic jojoba oil, vanilla extract, tagetes oil, peppermint oil, limonene, flavour

Price: 7,40 € for 25g
It is quite pricey, but a little goes a long way. However, considering the price, I don't know if I'll repurchase it. I'll try to make my own scrub and see how it works. If it doesn't turn out ok, I can still go back to this Mint Julips one. 


IRON MERMAIDEN NAIL POLISH BY CATRICE
The photo on the left is mine (taken with flash) and the right photo is taken from the web (it shows the accurate colour)

This is definitely my most worn nail polish this month. It's quite difficult to capture the colour of it on the photo, but I guess this always happens when it comes to holographic nail polishes. I would say that the most predominant colour is metallic pink/purple with a hint of silver, but when the light catches it, you can also see some green/blue. I'm not gonna lie, the colour is sadly the one thing I like about this nail polish as it chips very easily (after 2 days) and goes on pretty sheer. 

Price: 2,5 € for 10ml


PIVOINE FLORA INCREDIBLE LIP SHINE BY L'OCCITANE

I've had this lip gloss for about 6 months already, but I only started to use it a few weeks ago. It looks like a normal sheer gloss, but it actually works to enhance the natural colour of your lips with a soft natural sheen. The lip gloss turns pink when applied, and the colour of your lips becomes ''your lips but better'' if you know what I mean. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the packaging itself. At first, the lip gloss was coming out of the tube like no joke, you couldn't stop it and it all turned into a sticky mess. It's fine now when the tube is no longer full, though. Ohh, and the stickiness? I would describe it as medium.

Price: 12,50€ for 10ml
I can't really comment on the price. It's from L'Occitane and all their products are really expensive. I just wish the packaging would be better for this price...

  9. I love hearing other people's product reviews. Bath & Body Works makes a peppermint sugar scrub for lips that is similar and less expensive but yields equally good results. Pretty nail color, it's so unique!

  10. Jayme & I love our lip scrubs that we picked up from LUSH last month! They do smell good enough to eat, though that's totally gross. Great favorites!

  12. I keep seeing other bloggers rave about lush products and it makes me want to try them even more! there's a lush store just down the broad line from school. I will have to get down there one of these days to try the stuff out. I think the nail polish is still super pretty even if it isn't done justice in the picture.
