Hello everyone! I’m back with a super exciting review of a lip exfoliator…in stick form! YES YES YES THE CHOIR OF TOMBOY PRINCESS ANGELS IS SINGING FROM ABOVE.
No more messing around with your fingers in a tub of glorified sugar. Here comes the real deal!
What it promises (from the official ILIA website):
~ organic ingredients blended with tiny granules of volcanic stone powder
~ gently exfoliate the lips leaving a smooth, kissable surface
What it delivers:
I looked at the ingredient list and am happy that there isn’t any ingredient I couldn’t pronounce! I’m very wary of what I put on my skin since I have sensitive skin so I’m glad that this product is organic.
And guess what – VOLCANIC STONE POWDER. Yea, I like to imagine I’m in Hawaii when I use this.
I swipe this on my lips and the granules gently exfoliate. I wipe the excess residue away et voila! wonderfully soft, flake-free lips. This product doesn’t dry out my lips like other lip exfoliators I’ve tried (Lush, sugar & EVOO). It leaves my lips feeling really smooth and looking plump. I especially appreciate that I can control the area I exfoliate and visibly see the flakes of dead skin coming off!
I bought this little gem from wishlist boutique in Kits (other mentions here and here). It retails at CAD$26 (before taxes) so yes, it’s pricey! I have been using this product as part of my lip prep before putting on bold lip colors and my lipstick always looks #flawless.
Overall rating: 5/5 active volcanoes
~update on March 15, 2015 ~
After half a year of using this, I will now rate it a B.
Thoughts: I am giving this product 5 active volcanoes because why not. It’s a lip exfoliator. Perfect for lip prep for fall’s bold lip colors. and it has fantastical volcanic stone powder.
What kind of lip exfoliators have you tried?
Stay true xo
