Most Helpful Positive Review my lips are forever changed
not to be dramatic but this lip scrub has changed my life. my lips are constantly cracking and peeling, can get very dry and i'm always attacking them with an exfoliating sponge to try to maintain their smoothness. however since i've started using this scrub on a nightly basis about two weeks ago i haven't had to deal with ANY of that. it does tend to be a little thick and "glue stick" feeling but it's not real sticky and it melts down to a comfortable consistently rather quickly. i apply a generous amount before falling asleep and by the time i wake up, most of it has absorbed into my lips and all of my peeling, dead skin has basically sloughed off and the absolute MOST i'll have to do is wipe away what little but of dead skin is left maybe 2 or 3 swipes with a washcloth or towel. i'm finding that while i do still have to maintain the general moisture of my lips with a regular chapstick throughout the day, i'm applying it less often and my skin is not cracking or peeling up without it. seriously i could not rave about this lip scrub enough. once before bed every night and my lips are literally perfect
Most Helpful Critical Review Took me a minute!
I got this and was so excited as I love Buxom Cosmetics. The tube it comes in is just darling and it's also wider so you're getting more product than a lipstick. Under the cap is a little white mound with black dots (think poppyseeds) inside. I put it on thinking "Where's the scrubby dubbys?" like a typical exfoliant. I could see them but wasn't feeling them. The first couple of times I used this, I felt like I was using chapstick. I applied, then wiped with a dry tissue as directed. The more I thought about it, I knew that something was wrong, so I stuck my finger on the top of the product and smash! The exfoliating particles were revealed. I then put THAT on my lips and rubbed in a circular motion and that was the key. You have to basically pop that top of the product to get to the good exfoliating part of it and that should be mentioned in the directions. I will say, my lips definitely felt softer and it removed some of that gross dry skin I have on my lips. Yay Colorado winters.

My lips get super dry in the winter so when I found out about the Buxom lip scrub I was up for it, but OMG DO I LOVE. With most lips scrubs they leave a lot of scrubs all over your face but this one gentle exfoliates the dead skin and leaves my lips super SOFT. The guava flavor is also a cherry on the top to making it amazing. 10/10

I like the packaging of the lip scrub I'm not a fan of the potted lip scrubs. This one is nice. I use it before bed and also before applying lipstick. It's not extremely abrasive but it does exfoliate.
Britt from Seattle, WA
I love a good lip-scrub and this one knocks it out of the park! Its not overly rough like some lip scrubs tend to be and its also very hydrating. 100000/10 would recommend.
Not what I expected...
aharris23 from Rome, NY
As someone who suffers from frequently chapped and dry lips I love lip scrubs to exfoliate and moisturize my lips during the winter. When you apply this product it feels really nice and moisturizing but it doesn't really exfoliate. I almost feel like the sugar granules disappear as soon as they touch your lips. After I wiped it away I felt like my lips were dryer than before I applied it. In my opinion it works better has a chapstick or nighttime lip mask to sleep in. I love buxom products, especially their plumping lip polish. I was a little disappointed with this not being an awesome lip scrub, but I will continue to use as a lip mask.
Gentle lip exfoliant
Lindsey from Tucson, AZ
The BUXOM Cosmetics Power-Full Lip Scrub in Sweet Guava offers a convenient way to make my lips smooth and soft. This product is perfect to use before applying lip color or at bedtime before applying a lip treatment. Once you scrub off the top layer, it reveals a gentle exfoliating sugar scrub in a convenient tube form. I love that there is no mess like there is with a traditional lip scrub in a jar. It also smells fresh and fruity!
Ale from New Jersey
The smell is good. The texture is not that bad. Its easy to apply would def purchase.
Beth from Florida
I love the packaging of this lip scrub, it is so easy to apply to my lips giving full coverage and leaving my fingers free from stickiness. Wiping it off is equally as easy and leaves my lips feeling oh so soft. The smell is pretty interesting as well.
Hilda from Van Nuys
This product is amazing... Besides that it smells so good it leaves my lips nice and soft...
Lori from Dinuba, CA
I love that it comes in stick form. It is very easy to use. The product is not too soft, it's pretty firm. It gives the lips a nice exfoliation without being too harsh. My lips were so soft and smooth after using it. I love the sweet guava scent. The packaging is beautiful. It's absolutely wonderful. I have zero complaints. I highly recommend it if you want a nice exfoliating and gorgeous lip scrub.
Megan from Minnesota
I didn't find this product extremely effective as a lip scrub. It didn't have many exfoliating beads. I consider it more of a balm. It has cute packaging and a nice smell though. If you need to exfoliate this isn't the best product.
The perfect exfoliator
LipglossandConverse from Nashvhllr
This is the perfect exfoliator for my lips! Not too harsh but gets the job done!
Ria from Houston
Amazing scrub. It feels so smooth almost like you don't have anything. Leaves your lips smooth and smells delicious.
Not like your standard lip scrub
Yuliya from Cincinnati
I love this lip scrub. 1) it doesn't feel abrasive on your lips and just goes on smoothly 2) it gives your lips a plumped effect without having to feel a buzzing sensation and 3) it's completely mess free. Highly recommend
Good, but Not Great
Kala from Wilmington, NC
When I am looking for a new lip scrub, I am looking for 3 main qualities: exfoliating, conditioning, and moisturizing. The Buxom Cosmetics Power-Full Lip Scrub is very good at conditioning and moisturizing, but it falls short when it comes to exfoliating. In order for a lip scrub to be exfoliating, I have found that it needs to have a good scrub:conditioner ratio. If you have too little of the scrub material then you basically end up with a lumpy lip balm. That's pretty much what happened with this product - there just is not enough of the exfoliating beads in it to give your lips a decent scrub. It did not get any of the dry skin off of my lips. However, it is a very good moisturizer and conditioner and still left my lips feeling softer (even if they weren't exactly exfoliated). So, while I can't recommend this product if you need a really good exfoliator, this would still be a good product for someone looking to just lightly buff and condition their lips.

Since it's in the middle of the winter season this Lip Scrub from the Brand Buxom came at the most perfect time! My lips were so dry, red, & chapped beyond belief.
After I do my night time skin care routine, I Iike to use this lip scrub in circular motions on my lips to help buff away the dry chapped skin. And I am in LOVE with the yummy scent of 'SWEET GUAVA'! It smells amazing & helped bring nourishment back to my lips!
I like to use this lips scrub every other night & that has seriously kept my lips from going back to being dried out & chapped like before! This will forever be a staple in my skincare routine & I highly suggest this to you, especially if want pillow-y soft lips!!
Naomi from NY
It smells AMAZING. It really does scrub the lips and it does plump but not in a harsh way!
Leaves your lips soft
Akrew from Nj
This let's grab initially left me super surprised, on first application they're didn't seem to be many scrubbing bits to it but when I had used it the second time I found a nice gentle exfoliating lip scrub beneath. This product left my lips feeling nice and soft without any of the dead skin or weird residue that can be left behind for other lip scrubs.
Great feel, smooth scrub
Makeup_bymadison from Canton, IL
I've been using this lip scrub for about two weeks now and my lips are sooooo smooth. Normally about this time of year my lips are dry and cracking. This has solved that issue. Definitely would recommend
Colie from Stafford
I was amazed at the smooth feeling Buxom left my lips. My lips are smooth and looking great. Especially for winter time when lips are easily dry and cracked. I'm so glad I was able to try this for free. The flavor is awesome and it smells great.
Almost loved it
Dallamalla4 from Monroe Oregon
This product smells amazing and even taste good. My only issue with it was how rough it was. And I don't mean the exfoliator. It was just hard to rub on the skin in general
Smooth but exfoliating
HB from Vegas
This is so convenient and easy to use. I love how it's not a messy jar and how it exfoliates my lips but it doesn't hurt, my lips are still smooth and left comfortable immediately after use and not dry !
Renae409 from Mississippi
I love this lip scrub. The packaging is beautiful and fun. The actual product gently exfoliated my lips without leaving a chunky residue and it also moisturized my lips. I love that I can swipe it on instead of using my fingers. Definitely recommend!
Kstahl from Oregon
This barely scrubbed my lips. I felt almost no exfoliation at all. There were no exfoliating "balls" until further down in the stick so I had to run this over my lips quite a bit before feeling any exfoliation. By then I had so much of the balm covering my lips that it felt like I was wearing a waxy lip mask. Hardly any scent to it either. I do like the convenience of a lip scrub stick as opposed to a pot or jar, but the execution of this was very poor. Very disappointed.
Sammy44 from NYC
I love this lip scrub to prep my lips before applying a lipstick. It leaves my lips feeling soft and hydrated. This scrub gently exfoliates the lips. The product is mess-free and easy to use.
The perfect lip scrub!
hmd1993 from Seattle, WA
I love how this lip scrub feels! I've tried different lip scrubs, my favorite type being this lipstick style bullet packaging as it's less messy. I've tried others in the past that were too harsh or the formula was too dry but the BUXOM Sweet Guava Lip Scrub is perfect! It exfoliated my lips but it was gentle and left my lips feeling exfoliated and soft.
