Splurge vs. Save: Sara Happ & Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrubs

I am a big fan of lip scrubs, keeping my lips smooth and flake free for whatever lipstick shade seems to brings out the worst in my lips, is an obsession of mine. I have a quite a few of these but I usually reach for the ones that have a stronger grit to them, the ones that really go to work on my lips are my favorites.

Sara Happ’s The Lip Scrub has been out for ages but the $24 price tag kept me away for a long time. When I finally bit the bullet and gave in to the price tag, I found a lip scrub that is rich, gritty and effective. One of my pet peeves with some lip scrubs is texture. Some do not have enough grit to them, there’s too much oil or a carrier in them to use the sugar crystals effectively but that’s not the case with Sara Happ’s Lip Scrub. What you get is a dense paste with plenty of brown sugar to take care of flaky lip syndrome and keep it in check for good. A pot has 30ml of product and this scrub is now available in 6 other flavors.

On the right you have Lush’s Sweet Lips Lip Scrub retailing for $8.95 a pot. While it has slightly less product, it also costs much, much less and is just as effective. It does not have the same paste link consistency as Sara Happ’s Lip Scrub but it has a healthy dose of castor sugar crystals to keep lips soft and smooth just as well. I actually reach for this one more often than the other because Lush’s Lip Scrub is not as dense and spreads a little easier on the lips. Lush also has two other flavors available; Mint Julip and Bubble Gum, both of which I have just in case I feel the urge to mix it up a little.

Both of these lip scrubs are fantastic and are both eligible for holy grail status. I will tell you this, I do reach for these Lush lip scrubs more often simply because I do not worry about replacing them since they are much cheaper. I do understand that sometimes a splurge is necessary though. Either way, you’re in good hands with these lip scrubs.

Lip Addiction: Sara Happ Lip Scrub

I know, it’s been awhile since I’ve brought you anything new but I’m back now and ready for action! Product Girl is reporting for duty. :) With that said, I have to introduce you to one my current obsessions: Sara Happ’s Lip Scrub in Cocoa.

If you’re like me, and by that I mean obsessed with lip balms and products of that sort, you’ve probably heard of Sara Happ and her Lip Scrubs… if not, well, you’re in for a treat. I resisted the temptation until I was in Vancouver last month, when I was finally was able to see the product in person for the first time. Once I saw it, the only decision left to be made was choosing a flavor to bring home with me.

I finally decided on Sara Happ’s Lip Scrub in Cocoa, just opening up the jar and smelling it had me hooked immediately… now I can’t get enough of this product, it’s a complete treat for your lips.  The texture is great for getting rid of any dry, flaky skin on your lips without being too abrasive. When you’re done using it, your lips are as smooth as silk and deliciously sweet. While the price may seem a little steep for a lip product, consider how much product you’re really getting. All you need is a few little granules to do the job and at that rate,  I probably have enough for a whole year. :)
