Christmas 2018 saw the return of Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub, but released alongside it was a new one called Cranberry Fizz.
At first, the scent isn’t the best I won’t lie. I can’t really describe it but it just doesn’t seem to smell particularly nice unfortunately. With Brazilian Orange, Lime and Ginger, you’d imagine it to smell kinda zesty and spicy, and I guess it does, but sadly it doesn’t do it for me.
The base of Caster Sugar and Jojoba Oil is mixed with Shea Butter, Peach Kernel Oil and Cranberry Seed Oil which are all said to be extra conditioning and softening for your lips. Whilst I agree that my lips feel much softer and more moisturised after using this limited edition scrub, I can’t say it feels any different using this one over the likes of Chocolate or Bubblegum.
Saying that, there is one clear difference. Cranberry Fizz contains Citric Acid and Sodium Bicarbonate, both of which are usually added to Bath Bombs to make them fizz – and like the name suggests, they do the same here! You get a fizzing, tingling feeling on your lips and mouth when exfoliating and licking it off which is kinda cool. The Citric Acid also gives the lip scrub it’s sour flavouring which reminds me of sour candies you used to love, yet hate as a child.
In conclusion, there’s something about the taste of Cranberry Fizz that I do like, I’m not one for overly sweet flavours so I more than appreciate the difference, yet there’s also something that I really don’t like so I’m very much undecided on my feelings towards this Christmas product.
