Alongside Adam’s Apple Mouthwash Tabs, Lush also released a fruity lip scrub called Eve’s Cherry. I’m always slightly apprehensive with new lip scrub flavours because occasionally they have a weird after taste, but I’m a big fan of cherry flavoured things so I had high hopes.
This limited edition lip scrub smells rather fruity and not artificially, a lot like sweet cherry jam, or fizzy cherry flavoured candies which raised my hopes even more. I scooped a generous amount onto my finger and gave my lips a good scrub. The usual Caster Sugar and Jojoba Oil base works wonders at removing dead skin, whilst softening and hydrating the lips. Eve’s Cherry further contains Shea Butter and highly moisturising Cherry Kernel Oil and I could definitely feel the benefits of these ingredients on my freshly polished lips.
The taste definitely met my expectations. It’s sweet but not too sweet and also has a sharp, almost sour zing to it. The ingredients that make up the flavour of the scrub have been carefully chosen to mimic fruity tastes. Almond Essential Oil creates a subtle cherry flavour, Davana Oil tastes of peaches, whilst Buchu Oil gives a sultry blackberry hint. The subtle sourness comes from the inclusion of Lime Oil and prevents the scrub from being too sweet. I really really like this flavour, I think it potentially is almost on par with my favourite lip scrub of all time, The Kiss! It seems Lush really get them right for Valentines Day!
Eve’s Cherry is definitely one that I could use often, I’m really not a giant fan of overly sweet lip scrubs like Bubblegum or Sugar Plum Fairy so it’s nice to have something a little different that doesn’t get sickly after a couple of uses. I personally use a lip scrub every morning too, so obviously it’s important to use one I actually enjoy using, and I’m happy I’ve found a new fave!
