The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #11
Posted 04/15/11 at 11:15AM by Audrey Fine
The Price: $7.00
The Promise: Get smooth, "sumptuous" lips with a vegan polish that boasts three essential oils: lavender, spearmint and peppermint.
The Real Deal: I have a weakness for lip scrubs. There's something incredibly satisfying for me about polishing my lips with a gooey grain that I feel really must be making my mouth as soft and smooth as possible -- plus, I'm convinced that exfoliating away those top layers of skin above my lips is helping to keep the dreaded lip-wrinkles at bay. That said, this cute little no-frills tub of organic matter appeals to me on many levels. It doesn't contain any creepy chemicals, is earth-friendly, smells divine and, hey, it also does a darn good job at polishing lips!
The Upshot: I'm always taking lip polishes (and balms) for test drives and this is definitely one that I'd seek out. I like the fact that it's wholesome and does a great job -- two aspects that tend to be mutually exclusive.
Do you love exfoliating your lips as much as I do? What's your favorite scrub? Nominate it by leaving a comment below. And, as for the lip color that I'll be slicking atop my newly softened lips, that'd be the lipstick I selected as my VIP Pick of the Week #8.
