Everything about the brand new MAC Lip Scrubtious lip exfoliator line is appealing. Cute little pots of sugar scrub goodness in the prettiest range of flavours and colours. What’s not to love? Buy them HERE
I have been stalking these little beauties since the end of last year because the little sneak peeks I have seen are just so inviting. I do love lip exfoliators because they genuinely take lip care to a whole new level and seeing as MAC have some amazing mattes in their lipstick portfolio, it’s definitely a launch that complements their core offering.
Incidentally, MAC are adding new shades to their amazing Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color at a similar time, so it is good timing.
MAC Lip Scrubtious Features
- Sugar-based lip exfoliator
- Gently buffs away dry and flaky skin
- Uses an advanced formula of hydrating and nourishing conditions
- Leaves lips soft and smooth
- Available in five different varieties
You can choose from Sweet Vanilla, Candied Nectar, Fruit of Passion, Summer Berry and Sweet Brown Sugar. I have the very pink and gorgeous Fruit of Passion to show you.
I love that the packaging matches the shade of the scrub and this one smells amazing. I couldn’t resist having a little taste! I find popping a bit on, leaving it for a few minutes (whilst trying not to eat it), then doing another scrub before wiping it off works the best. It gives the product a chance to soften any dry skin before sweeping it away, and following with balm. It’s hard not to have a little taste while you’re doing it though! Whilst it’s made of sugar, I’m pretty sure you shouldn’t really eat it.
I find a little prep like this goes a long way with lots of beauty related products. Have you tried a hand exfoliator before applying hand cream? It makes for much softer and smoother hands. You can use a bit of body scrub if you don’t have a hand one.
