ELF Lip Exfoliator review

What is it?


The ELF lip exfoliator is basically a lip scrub in lipstick form. It’s in a sleek, matte black packaging and it is conveniently shaped like a lip stick for easy application. It is a mixture of oils and butters and it has a grainy texture. Since it contains butters it will melt at body temperature and it will create a slip when you use it to make it easier and more gentle on your lips. Using it is quite simple, all you have to is to apply it to your lips with small circular movements for better exfoliation and then wipe it off afterwards. It’s always a good idea to apply a lip balm after you exfoliate your lips too, just to make them feel more nourished.

I have used the scrub many times now (it doesn’t look as pretty as in the picture anymore) but it works really well for me. As you can see in the pictures below, on the top my lips look uneven in color because they’re dry. On the bottom is after exfoliation, before applying a lip balm and the color has evened out because the exfoliation has brought more blood to them and made them more smooth. There’s no dry lines anymore and they generally feel a lot healthier.


I’m very impressed with how well it works, how it smells and how it tastes. You’re not really supposed to taste it but I just had to. It should be somewhat safe so I don’t think it will hurt me in any way to have done that. I tend to leave it on my lips for a little bit to let the oils and butters do its work before wiping it off, but I don’t think everyone would enjoy that feeling.

However, if you don’t have too sensitive lips and want a scrub that is less messy than a traditional sugar scrub, plus it’s affordable ($3 on their website), I would recommend this. If it doesn’t work for you, at least you haven’t spent loads of money on it.

Have you tried this scrub/exfoliator before? What did you think of it?

    I love this scrub too! What scent did you get? x



      It doesn’t say if it has a particular scent! The store I bought it from only had the one and I think it’s the original, the label on the bottom just says ‘clear’.



    I’m looking for a good lip exfoliator. Thanks for this review.
