What the brand says: Get totally smooth lips with M.A.C Lip Scrubtious. This sugar-based exfoliator gently buffs away dry and flaky skin, with a formula enhanced by hydrating and nourishing conditioners leaving lips soft and oh-so-smoochable. Available in five flavours including Candied Nectar, Fruit of Passion, Summer Berry, Sweet Brown Sugar and Sweet Vanilla.
Packaging: The lip scrub comes in a very pretty pink pot (the one I got, other flavors have different colours) with a black screw cap. The tiny pot is very sturdy and of great quality- after all it is M.A.C that never fails with its packaging!
Texture: The lip scrub is like some lip oil mixed with sugar; and it tastes sweet too! After rubbing onto your lips, the sugar melts and makes lips really soft.
Fragrance: The lip scrub has a very sweet berry smell which I LOVE!
How I use and after-effects: To use, simply take a small amount of scrub on your fingers and apply it onto your dry lips. Massage your lips until all the sugar granules dissolves- this might take good 3-4 minutes. Wipe it off and you are done!
The lip scrub does feel a bit harsh when massaged vigorously, so take care that you massage with love and with light hands. The sugar granules in lip scrub once dissolved, you can wipe it off and flow with a lipstick of your choice, apply a lip balm or just leave it as it is. I do not have severely cracked or dry lips and even a simple lip balm keeps its soft, but when I use matte lipsticks, my lips look dry and at the end of the day, they crave for something moisturizing or hydrating. I feel when I use this lip scrub before a lipstick, it keeps my lips soft and smooth even under a matte lipstick and my lips still feel soft at the end of the day. Very severely cracked and dry lips might need to use this 2 times a day (morning and before bedtime) to make the softness last longer. Usually, you are not supposed to use a lip scrub more than 3-4 times a week, but dry lips can use this 2 times a day. I use it every alternate day because I love how my lips feel after using this. Overall, I love this product and the way it softens my lips is incredible.
