Puur Lemonade Lip Scrub
Purr Lemonade Lip Scrub ($5.00) tastes like sweet lemonade as the sugar granules gently exfoliate away any dead skin from the lips. It works, and it smells and tastes delicious, but the consistency is on the looser side, so I find that is very, very easily spreads so that it doesn’t seem as effective exfoliating as thicker lip scrubs. The sugars just disperse and run a bit across the mouth and just outside of it. To that end, it is gentler as there are less sugar granules in motion at once.
As a quick note, I’m not entirely sure how much product my jar contains, as it doesn’t say on my jar. The listing I purchased it from said it was 1 oz., but it was also supposed to be contained in a glass jar. As far as I can tell, my jar is plastic and a white plastic cap (not a brassy metal one), and the labeling is on the top of the lid (not around the jar). The ingredients listed on my label are as follows: “sugar, hemp butter, sunflower oil, essential oil.” The listing also included olive oil, avocado oil, and beeswax, none of which are listed on my label, under materials.
Puur Pumpkin Spice Body Butter ($7.00 for 4 oz.) is an extremely thick, not-quite-solid body butter used to provide intense hydration to the skin. It’s supposed to smell like a “maple bar and brown sugar, with hints of pumpkin spice.” In the jar, there are bits of pumpkin spice and brown sugar, but there’s a very noticeable waxy/plastic-y note in it, and on, it smells like an old lipstick–I don’t get any of the sweetness or pumpkin spice after a half hour. The consistency is just very lightly whipped but more solid (more like butter!). It was also a little stringy (maybe
This also took forever to absorb! I would take a shower, apply this, and sit in shorts–two to three hours later, it would still feel oily and have a faint sheen. I tried using less and less as I continued to test it, and using as little as possible, it seemed to mostly absorb after an hour. Ultimately, though it certain seems like it should be hydrating, I felt like a lot of the product was never absorbed and ended up on my bedding or clothing, so I did not feel like my skin looked or felt moisturized after using this.
Again, there was a packaging discrepancy, as it was pictured and described as being in an amber glass jar, and mine is just a glass jar. I really don’t have an issue with how either product arrived to me, but I don’t like that they aren’t as pictured. There were no ingredients listed on my jar, but the listing has these under materials: “raw ivory shea butter, olive oil, soy wax, arrowroot powder, fragrance.”
I might be the odd one out, as this is an Etsy shop with over 4,000 reviews. If you’ve tried Puur, I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🙂
