Lush Products for the Lips

Ciao bella,
“You know how to whistle, don’t you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow.” Lauren Bacall to Humphrey Bogart in To Have and Have Not (1944).

Are you ready to pucker up with a soft smooth pout? If not, here are some all year round essentials for beautiful soft lips.

Some of our first lip care was introduced by a century old company “Labello” (pretty lips) in Germany. In 1909 they came out with a lip balm stick that was wrapped in paper. Then an aluminum sliding tin was developed. With WWII breaking out aluminum was in high demand, hence the plastic tube. Still popular today these researchers specialize in treating lips from medicinal, moisturizing, sun protection, to cosmetic regeneration/rejuvenation with Q10.

Today there is flavored lip gloss to color and shine and matte with added vitamins and moisturizers to soften and smooth parched lips. And to keep your kisses soft and sweet LUSH has introduced a NEW range of lip scrubs. Exfoliating lips with a lip scrub helps the skin hold more moisture, prevents chapping, removes dry flaky skin and makes lips silky smooth. Try their mouth-watering flavors and you'll be puckering up in no time.

MINT JULEP lip scrub—tingly mint chocolate ice-cream flavor with peppermint oil and vanilla extract to protect.

BUBBLEGUM lip scrub-brings back childhood memories with its pink candy-like flavor will gently slough away rough, dry lips.

SWEET LIPS lip scrub has a deep fragrance of chocolate with vanilla extract. Leaves lips feeling and tasting irresistible. Like Crème Brulee on your lips.

So, start taking care of the only set the good Lord gave you-pucker up and kiss someone close!
