My 3 Latest Addictions

Hi everyone, I'm happy to share with you these three products that I have recently discovered, but have been using them over and over! I just love them! They are Lush Sugar Scrub in Sweet Lips, Classic Carmex lip balm, and Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo. Keep reading for my reviews!

Lush Sugar Scrub in Sweet Lips. I have been having flakey lip days lately, I don't really know why. I popped into the Lush store at Westfield, and saw their lip scrubs. I wanted to try one. They had three flavours, a bubblegum flavoured one, a minty one, and the one that I picked, Sweet Lips, which smells of divine Chocolate! This scrub is essentially just sugar, with added 'moisturising oils' but still sugar. I think I can actually make this myself, but at the moment I don't want to be spending my time DIY-ing. Maybe I'll make this in the summer. But I actually really love this. I was told to rub the sugar on dry lips and then once I feel they're scrubbed enough, I just lick the product off my lips. And it works to remove the flakes. Yay! ♥

Classic Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm. This lip balm has menthol and leaves your lips a bit tingly. I find that it soothens my lips well. After I scrub my lips with the sugar scrub above, I use this Classic Carmex balm or my Kiehl's Lip Balm to moisturise my lips. My lips feel great after!

Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo. I know I'm late in joining the dry shampoo band wagon, but I remember I tried one last year (the pink one?) and it made my scalp feel really itchy and sore and I had to wash out the product immediately with REAL shampoo! I think I was allergic to a component of it. 1 year later, I braved to try this one. And I am super pleased with the results! :)
Batiste Tropical Dry Shampoo is what it is, a dry shampoo, which is meant to refresh hair between washes. I like washing my hair every 2days as I feel that frequent washing strips off the natural oils of your hair and makes them drier and weaker. This works well to use between the washes, or when I am rushing and have no time to clean my hair. Oh, and one more thing, I LOVE its Coconut smell! Smells really 'tropical' and makes me excited for the upcoming summer. :)

Well, I hope this review was useful!
Have you tried any of these products??

What is your favourite lip balm/ lip scrub? I'd love to know!
