Review: Bimble Organic Raw Cane Sugar Lip Scrub

I've had really dry lips this Winter so I'm constantly looking for new products to keep them conditioned. For some reason I can't wear lipstick, it doesn't go on my lips in the first place let alone stay there on a night out which is why I love lip stains like Revlon Just Bitten but I've never really looked at lip scrubs before.

I chose this one, mainly because it was fairly cheap, and I had an Amazon voucher. A 25g pot costs £3.50 on Amazon (here) or £2.95 direct from Bimble (here) plus £2.95 postage. I like the fact that they use all organic and natural ingredients. Having spot prone skin I like to keep the products I use on my face as natural as possible, especially round my mouth. 

Dispatch was quick: I ordered this on Saturday and it arrived Tuesday. No fancy packaging (or gift bag as advertised on Amazon) but it did come with sweets which is all good by me. 

So on to the application. First of all it smells great! I got the pink grapefruit but you can also choose from orange, peppermint, lemon, cocoa, vanilla, lime, violet, rose or spearmint. It's fairly messy to use so I would definitely recommend doing it in the bathroom. I just used my finger to rub a small amount on my lips and then reapplied on the areas I felt needed it. As it is all natural ingredients you can just lick it off (cheeky) and I used a face wipe just to get rid of the excess. Although it is a fairly small pot I didn't need to use much so I think it will last a few months.  

I used my trusty Burt's Bees lip balm to finish of the process. I always use this before bed as it is so moisturising. This routine has left my lips feeling wonderfully smooth - I would recommend repeating 2-3 times a week. Again the perks of having natural ingredients means you don't need to worry about putting to many chemicals on your skin.

All in all I would definitely recommend Bimble's Lip Scrub. x
