Most Helpful Positive Review A nice exfoliator for every day
I ordered both clear and cherry tart exfoliators. Both are shaped like lipsticks and come in basically the same container. Both work essentially the same as well: you rub them on your lips (it helps to rub it back and forth until your lips warm it up and melt the exfoliator a little), rub the scrub on your lips, then wipe it away. The exfoliation is nice; it gets rids of dead skin cells on my lips and makes my lipstick apply really nicely afterwards.
I think the cherry is the real winner here, for two reasons. One, it tastes better. The clear one tastes mostly like sugar, but also has a faintly chemical aftertaste. The cherry one doesn't taste exactly like cherries, but it tastes vaguely cherry-like and doesn't have the weird other taste.
But, the real reason to buy the cherry (or the mint, it looks like from the picture): it includes a second product! The directions say to follow up exfoliating with a balm or gloss for conditioning, but the cherry one includes a small amount of gloss. It's in the square container on the bottom. With a little effort, you can pop off the square and get out some gloss. It's nice and smooth for after exfoliating. E.L.F is cheap enough you can buy all three for the price of one other brand's exfoliator, but if you want to pick just one, make it the cherry tart!
Most Helpful Critical Review Meh
Didn't love this product tbh. I thought it was going to be awesome because of all the positive reviews, but it didn't perform as well as expected. There's a very small amount in the tube even for three dollars which wasn't awful but I def wish there was more. I'm on a medication right now that dries out my lips like crazy and I needed a pretty good exfoliator and I had to use quite a bit of this to feel like anything was actually happening and even then it didn't exfoliate all that well. After a while I realize that I just destroyed my lips trying so hard to get an even exfoliation with this. It might work for someone who has mild dryness, but for me this just wasn't great.

I like to exfoliate my lips at least once or twice a week. But I dislike using the lip scrub out of a pot. It's messy and half of the scrub ends up falling off your lips onto you or the floor. So when I saw this I tried it. It does what it says and NO MESS. Simply rub on the lips in a nice circular motion, and then wipe with a warm towel and follow up with a nice conditioning lip balm. End result nice smooth lips. I HIGHLY recommend.

Absolutely love this! It actually exfoliates my lips and makes them feel amazing! 10 out of 10 would buy again! ❤️
Jay from Texas
It definitely does what it advertises to do. However, it also takes off a couple layers of skin as it feels like 60 grit sandpaper dragging across my lips.
Definitely would repurchase!

At first, you don't feel your lips being exfoliated but if you rub it on your hand first, you'll start to feel the grittiness. Real nice because you don't have to continuously stick your finger in the same spot
Love this stuff
Wen from Bay area
I love the cherry and the honey is good too. Gets the dry flakes off the center of my lips and leaves them moisturized as well.
I would definitely buy this again

Good for travel and light exfoliation
KenzieKat from Ronkonkoma, NY
I got the cherry one. It's good for light exfoliation. If you have a lot of dry skin on your lips I wouldn't recommend, but if you want a lip scrub that'll do a little exfoliation that you can toss in your purse and take with you, I think it's good. I do also like that they include a lip balm in the bottom but it's a little difficult to get the balm out. I thought it would smell/taste like cherry, but it had no smell/taste.
Great for the first time, sucky every time after
mo makeup from San José, CA
I use the product every morning and night with my regular face routine. The first time was great!! My lips felt so soft after and even the brown sugar taste yummy! Now that I've gotten past the brand new nice layer.... IT HURTS SO BAD USING THIS PRODUCT ON MY LIPS. To the point where I think I'm going to start bleeding??? I was really hoping for it to be like the first time I used it every time. I would recommend the coconut one over this one!
Price + Results = Worth It!
Lasquege from USA
As a preface, I am a chronic lip biter. Horrible habit, when I feel loose skin on my lips I can't help it. Using this helped so much! Granted, I would not recommend using it alone. I bought the lavender moon night lip mask by Pacifica and they paired very well! (Not to mention they're both relatively cheap!). For the price, and the results, I give it 5 stars. FYI: I used it for a solid 2 weeks every other night or when my lips were especially flaky; using it right after washing my face or showering was most pleasant.
I got the rose scent, and it is yummy!
Great Budget Exfoliator
Olive from Grand Rapids, MI
I had tried this product back in my school days and only kind of liked it. I decided to try it again as it was gaining popularity. I like it! I ordered the brown sugar version, and it smells amazing and does a decent job exfoliating my lips. My only con was that it leaves a greasy film on my lips that I prefer to wipe off after and replace with chapstick.
Jo from Texas
Not only does this really exfoliate your lips, it leaves them so hydrated. It has a sort of balm in it. It's so nice, and I love that I can carry it with me all the time!!
Good but not worth it
Cadence from Dallas
Overall it's good you have to kinda scratch the top part to get to the actual exfoliating balls but i don't recommended because it feels like you are putting Vaseline on your lips for the price is okay but I rather use the bliss one
Shelly from RI
I'm a fan of this scrub. I really like the application. I don't like having to use my finger so this is perfect. Lips feel great after i use this
Aya from Georgia
It doesn't exfoliate at all
Great for the price!!
Alex from Wisconsin
This works very well! I love it. My only gripe is that it starts to fall apart the lower you get in the tube. The product just gets unstable and chaotic. But I'm not paying more than $4 for a lip scrub when this one works amazing and I don't get it all over my hands.
Jamilet from Las Vegas, NV
At first, it works great with my lips but as time goes by, it begins to slowly fall apart and not exfoliate as well.
Connie from Ashland ky
Grainy feeling when applied which was expected. Wears off pretty fast.
Underrated - PLEASE READ
Brooke from Phoenix Az
Maybe it's because the scrub is like a bar, so I can press it harder against the area, but I don't care how it does what it does, keep it coming!! I'm a big advocate for lip care. After taking a hot shower and exfoliating my lips with this, I apply on some carmex and my lips are super soft and plump. Every other lip exfoliator I've used (diy, LUSH, etc.) has never gotten off ALL the dead skin on my mouth but this has.
cherry is good
Julia from Tulsa
I like the cherry flavor but the brown sugar is better
Its worth 2-3$ and an easy quick exfoliater
Morgan12-22 from Georgia
Look this product is only four dollars. You get exactly what you paid for. It's a quick on the go easy exfoliate made of sugar. people complaining that it fell apart or broke, you probably let it get too hot. Just like how chapsticks can melt, so can this product. Sometimes it doesn't matter all the way and it just breaks off really really easily due to the heat.
Cat from AZ
The first two uses are exfoliating and moisturizing but after that the oil runs out and all you have is a gritty exfoliating stick. Wonderful to use before lip balm.
not worth the hype
liz from ohio
i saw this product all over tiktok and youtube so i just had to get it since it was only 4 dollars. i'm not too sure what all the hype was about because it just feels like a chapstick w sugar chunks in it. i tried wearing it over night thinking maybe it's a chemical exfoliant but that didn't do anything either. the actual base of it is moisturizing but that's not really what it's for
Good! But it broke...
Violet from United States
Really love this product! I got it in the scent coconut and it smells amazing! It's extremely exfoliating! It also comes with a tiny Lipbalm at the bottom and I think it's absolutely adorable. The only problem is that after two uses it broke :( I was able to put the stick back in but now I have to always be really careful when I use it
Jasmine from VA
I got the cherry one, I'm pretty sure I got a bad batch cause when I opened it and it broke immediately and it smelt like chemicals. It just felt like oil on my lips. It's also dried my lips out a lot.
great lip exfoliant for chapped lips!
robo12 from los angeles
i struggle with chapped lips throughout the year. the exfoliant is sugar, as indicated on the ingredients list as sucrose so it will melt as makes contact with your lips. i like to apply 2-3 layers and then scrub it with my ring finger around my lips. by then the sugar is dissolved and the balm is very moisturizing!
