Philosophy Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub and Facial

Before lip scrubs became popular I had to hunt high and low to find a lip scrub, and the only one that I could find was this one by Philosophy. I'm really not sure why it's called a lip scrub and facial, I suppose they mean that it's like a facial for the lips.

This is what Philosophy has to say about it:

enriched with natural butters and oils, kiss me exfoliating lip scrub was created to help keep your lips in impeccable kissing condition by exfoliating dull, dry, flaky skin for a super-soft, super-smooth result. kiss me exfoliating lip scrub is ideal for anyone with dry, flaky lips that seeks smoothness and moisture.

you need this product if...
  • you have dry, wrinkled and sometimes flaky lips
  • you seek smoothness and moisture for your lips
  • you want to gently exfoliate your lips
  • you suffer from vertical lines around the lip and seek a treatment that softens the appearance of those lines
  • you seek an instant and dramatic lip makeover


  • Now, I don't agree with all of those statements. This is a nice product, but it is not an instant and dramatic lip makeover, and it does nothing at all for the fine lines around my lips.

    However, it is a really nice product. It has a great peppermint flavour and fragrance, and it's very moisturising, so after I've scrubbed my lips I'm left with moisturised, shiny lips. It has a slant tip applicator, so can be applied straight from the tube. I usually put it on my fingers first, then give me lips a good scrub. The exfoliating particles are very fine and don't scratch or irritate my lips. I use this twice a week to leave my lips soft and flake free.

    The texture of this is like a lip balm, and it can be a little runny, so I normally use it in the shower otherwise I often end up with it all around my mouth, not a good look!

    Would I buy it again? Probably not. It's a nice product, but I'd prefer if it came in a pot. I find that the product gets stuck in the tube and can be difficult to get out. If it came in a pot I would buy it again.
