I purchased the products below with my personal funds.
E.L.F. Studio Lip Exfoliator
First Impressions & Packaging:
I wasn't sure what to expect from this lip exfoliator that's in a lipstick tube, but my lips have been incredibly dry and chappy since moving to California, so I was desperate to find something to give me kissable lips. I first heard about this product from Beauty Broadcast, and after hearing her glowing review of it, I decided to dive in.
I really like the packaging of ELF's Lip Exfoliator. It's very sturdy and well made and the packaging that the bullet of exfoliator is in is made of some sort of metal. I love the sleek look of it!
The grains in this lipstick are pretty coarse, but because they are compressed into a lipstick bullet shape, it actually isn't that coarse when you use it on your lips. It took me a few minutes (when I first started using it) before I started feeling the coarse grains against my lips.
Major Likes & Dislikes:
I liked that, because the exfoliating grains were encased with moisturizing oils, that this product was a very gentle exfoliator. For the most part it feels very smooth on your lips, except for a few grains that protrude from the bullet and give your lips the exfoliation they need.
All in all, I find this a very useful product in my skincare routine. I have heard some people say it dries out, but so far I haven't seen that. And even if it did dry out in another month or two....at $3, this product is extremely affordable and easily repurchased.
