Review: St Ives Lip Scrub Juicy Watermelon
I haven’t purchased a St Ives beauty product in ages. I think it’s been over 10 years. I didn’t know they made lip scrubs. I saw them one day, and thought I would try them out. My lips have been well conditioned for the past months just by adding a lip mask (more on this soon!) to my lip care routine. Still, I had dead skin to remove from my lips. This lip scrub seems like something my lips could use. The St Ives lip scrub I purchased is in Juicy Watermelon. I hope it smells as good as the name. So I’ve been using it for 4 months already. Here are my thoughts on St Ives Lip Scrub Juicy Watermelon!
This lip scrub is made out of sugar crystals. The first ingredient in the product is sucrose. It also contains castor seed oil, coconut oil, sunflower seed wax, shea butter, and a bunch of other stuff like fragrance, paraffin, coloring, and so on. It’s not so natural but whatever. I already have it. So the lip scrub does smell really good. It’s called Juicy Watermelon, and it smells like it. It smells like candy to me. Mmm! I like it even though it’s just the fragrance, lol. I’m not bothered by it. The reason why I look forward to scrubbing my lips with this lip scrub. No, I’m just kidding, it’s only part of it. The exfoliation is what I really like about it. The skin on the lips are a bit different compared to the facial skin. I’m not worried about using something a little more rough on my lips. I have a lot of dead skin on my lips. I tend to accumulate dead skin on my lips very often (yeah, gross), so I use this lip scrub 2-3 times a week or when I need it. It has a granular, sugary texture to it, but it hasn’t torn my lips apart. The thick texture of the scrub makes it more gentle on the skin than it appears. And it does a darn good job at removing dead skin cells from the lips. My lips feel soft and smooth after each use. I enjoy using it very much. I wish there was more slip to the lip scrub to make it easier to move the scrub across the lips, but it’s not that big of a deal. Sometimes I add a few drops of oil to make the scrub more slippery to use. Overall, this lip scrub works, and it’s very affordable. It’s been 4 months, and I haven’t finished one jar yet. I actually purchased a couple jars without knowing if it’ll work for me out not. Surprisingly, it worked. I like it.
This is what St Ives Lip Scrub Juicy Watermelon looks like.
Pros & Cons
- Removes dead skin from lips
- Smells good
- Needs more slip to the scrub
St Ives Lip Scrub Juicy Watermelon wasn’t that bad. It does what it’s supposed to do. And that is, remove dead skin from the lips. It doesn’t take that long to remove dead skin from my lips using this scrub. I’ve spent more money on lip scrubs and ended up with mediocre results or the same as St Ives. For me, most lip scrubs are pretty much the same. Well, the ones I have encountered so far. I’m not too picky with lip scrubs. If it doesn’t stink, isn’t slimy, have decent texture, and doesn’t break out the skin around my lips, it’s good. This one turned out good. I haven’t used a St Ives skin care product in years too. That St Ives Apricot Scrub, lmao! This one’s good to go! It works on my lips! Cheers!
