Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary Lemon Lip Scrub
Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary Lemon Lip Scrub ($7.75 for 1 oz.) might just be my new go-to lip scrub. I’m really loving the smaller granules of sugar in this one, as well as the thicker base. It contains sucrose (brown sugar), shea butter, jojoba seed oil, lemon peel essential oil, and vitamin E. The jar says you can lick the remaining granules if you so desire…. you might want to, if you happen to love lemonade! It tastes like sweet, lemony goodness, though I prefer to wipe it away as it leaves more of the base behind and acts as a lightweight lip balm. You need a pea-size amount or less, then lightly work the sugar against the lip with a fingertip, and once finished, wipe away with a tissue. I ordered on October 30th, received it on November 4th, I believe–it was really, really quick to ship and actually arrive. It’s also available in Grapefruit, Blood Orange, Chocolate Orange, and Lime.
This is one of three lip scrubs I picked up from three different Etsy shops, and of the two I’ve tried so far, I’ve been wanting a lip scrub recently (all my previous ones were old enough to be recycled), and I caught myself about to buy one from Sephora, but I could hear my readers’ voices in my head–“just use sugar and oil!” Oh, so very true! Except I’m really not much of a DIY person and would rather have it ready to go. Instead, I turned to Etsy, which has plenty of bath and body shops and sure enough, I found a few lip scrubs to try. Perfect solution, because they’re not too expensive, come in fun flavors, and I get to support an indie business! 🙂
