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
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.

Melts too easily, wish it was sturdier for better scrubbing power, but all in all smells nice and leaves my lips mostly scrubbed and very nourished/soft.

Its not even a scrub its an overpriced mon moisturizing lip balm
Blisters from Boerne, Tx
After using this product for a week, blisters formed on my lips and it was very uncomfortable to say the least. It was more than likely an allergic reaction, but i still wanted other people to be aware.

Doesn't exfoliate unless i use my finger. Not worth it for the price
belen from forr worth
doesn't do much for exfoliation unless I use my fingertips. messy, and I feel like I use way too much product to get the dry skin off. does leave lips soft tho for the balm part.
Jewels from Undisclosed
It is not a bad product but not the greatest either. I expected the feel of the lip scrub while applying would feel more exfoliating
Abyt from Undisclosed
The worst lip scrub I have ever used. It left a layer of wax on my lips and started to smell bad after a weeks use? Looks and sounds like a great buy but trust me save your money worst product they have made.

after not being able to find the scrub i actually wanted i regretfully bought this one thinking it would work at the very least. as a lip scrub, it absolutely fails. it doesnt exfoliate AT ALL. i tried to give it the benefit of the doubt thinking maybe i had to breach the surface. i scrubbed and scrubbed but absolutely nothing. this is much more passable as a lip balm with little black specks in it than a lip scrub. not to mention it leaves so much white residue. if you want an actual good lip scrub, look elsewhere.

This was recommended to me in store. I recently started taking a medication that dried my lips out so much they were a crackly, peeling mess.
Within two days, my lips felt much better. Daily application has returned my lips to normal and so soft.
This is a god send for me.

REALLY LOVE THE LIP SCRUB. HOWEVER, THIS TIME I NOTICED THERE WERE NOT SO MANY OF THE BLACK SCRUB PIECES AS IN MY PREVIOUS ONE. YOUR LIPS FEEL GREAT AFTER USING THIS PRODUCT! I'LL STICK WITH THIS FOREVER!!!

I love a good lip scrub and was excited to see this mess-free, easy-to-apply scrub from Buxom (I love their lip liners). I watched their promo video on YouTube and I was convinced. The first time use had me thinking about using it better the second time and the second had me hoping the third time unlocked the big reveal but sadly no. I tried it a few more times thinking I must have to tweak something like try more pressure, less pressure, wet warm cloth, or dry cloth in order experience what the rave reviews shared.
Bottomline: nice smell and taste but the scrubbing bits are harsh. My lips always felt like they were covered by a film afterwards even after wiping and I do not mean the soft, dewy, moisturizing kind.

I expected more exfoliating beads. It's pretty smooth. Nice for moisturizing but not for exfoliating.
JR from Idaho
This hands free scrub is the best. I hate messes. The scrub is gentle and hydrating. I use it after my skincare while I finish getting ready for the day. It preps my lips for the day and the scent is nice.

I've been wanting to try this for a while so once it went on sale I bought the dragon fruit and the sweet guava. I like them both. Once you use it a few times, you get to the exfoliating beads. I'd buy this again.
MissuzK from Houston, TX
I purchased thus as I needed a good lip exfoliator. I got the dragonfruit. I will say my lips were extremely dry and certain spots were troublesome for me. I purchased this, and I have noticed a difference. I never expect overnight results and time will tell!
Miyavi from Bay Area
It's just not scrubby enough! Returned after one use because it did not exfoliate my lips at all. There are CHEAPER and more effective lip scrubs out there

While this product does have a part of it that acts like a scrub, it seems like you have to get through the chapstick part before you can even scrub. It feels too moisturizing for a scrub which is weird to say. It moisturizes more than it scrubs. That might be a pro for some people but I expected more of a scrub than a large chapstick basically. It does smell nice though- I got the guava one.
Alisa from Portland
The lip scrub in dragonfruit is really hydrating. however for this being in a tube it is so messy and doesn't really exfoliate the way other lip scrubs do when they are sugar based rather then whatever the beads in this are. It's also really thick, almost like toothpaste, so it cakes on your lips all weird.
Janeane from Pocatello
I struggle with lip scrubs. They are messy and usually leave my lips feeling more dried out. I love this scrub in dragon fruit scent. It exfoliates gently and leaves my lips feeling nourished. I leave it on while I put my makeup on then wipe away before applying lipsticks.
Hane from Nc
It's a good concept and it works pretty well, but I wish it was more solid because it would clump off easily.
MJ from Undisclosed
Very nice ...........
Great lip scrub! from Alaska
I love the similar plumping lip balms so I was thrilled to find this!
Very hydrating and the exfoliating particles aren't obnoxiously big, so you can put it on and leave the house!

I really wanted to love this... but... it does nothing. Absolutely nothing. I'm still amazed it has so many good reviews. The ELF scrub is $3 and does everything you need.
mamaB from Tennessee
best lip scrub!! easy to use my lips feel so soft
DanellyDanelly from Arizona
This lip scrub smells amazing and sweet. Works great without a harsh scrub so easy to use as well. The packaging is cute and covenant.
