Yes I’ve got it! – Sara Happ Red Velvet Lip Scrub Review
Just when I thought I was going to miss out on this amazing looking limited edition beauty must have my mom goes and orders me one from Beauty Habit in the US. I received it this week at work and I was beyond giddy. My colleagues didn’t appreciate or comprehend what was tucked away in this beautiful little red box even when I explained it to them. However when I got home Jamie completely understood the ear to ear grin on my face as I pulled the white ribbon from the box and opened to reveal this luxurious pot of lip scrub.
As you can see from the picture above this looks like a delicious little pot of strawberry jam. Now the scent, how can I explain it. For those of you who have never had it, red velvet cake it is somewhere between chocolate and vanilla red sponge cake with with a creamy white frosting. This however smells even better than what I’ve just described – to me it smells like cake and hot buttery popcorn. The scent for me is well stunning, I absolutely love it.
This formulation is similar to the other lip scrubs that Sara Happ does, a sugary smooth paste made with grape seed oil that you apply to your pout to buff off dead flaky skin. During the winter I like to exfoliate my lips at least once a week or more if I need it. Even though I’m good about applying lip balm regularly, dry air outside and central heating inside guarantee that my lips will need extra help. And besides it feels great to give your lips a good scrubbing.
Some people might say that you can use a toothbrush to exfoliate your lips instead of spending your money on a special lip scrub. However let me tell you this…….I think life is too darn short to scrimp on pleasures like Red Velvet Lip Scrub. When I reach a ripe old age and I’m reminiscing about my life (to anyone who will listen) I’ll be proud to say that I took care of my pucker with a luxurious lip scrub rather than saving my money by using a manky old toothbrush!
