Ulta haul, I purchased the e.l.f. cosmetics lip exfoliator in clear. The e.l.f. lip exfoliator also comes in mint and cherry tart. I decided to give it a try since I am not happy with the other exfoliators I've tried out. A lip exfoilator should be in everyone's cosmetics tool bag. It is a great way to sloughs off dead skin from lips so that your lipsticks and lip glosses go on smooth. Skin peels on lips make you look older and no one wants that!
The e.l.f. lip exfoliator comes in a black, cardboard container. The packaging is a little bit (and unnecessarily) bulky for me. The exfoliator itself is a black, sleek tube and fits nicely in any normal sized lipstick holder. The clear lip exfoliator smells like vanilla and looks pretty cool. You can see the microbeads inside the lipstick applicator. The directions, which you will want to follow, have you wet your lips first. This will help to move the applicator around your lips. The first few swipes really did not accomplish anything. You will have to move the lip exfoliator across your lips at least 4-6 times before you will feel the microbeads work. Once you feel the beads across your lips, you do notice that your lips are softer and smoother. To me, it feels like a nice massage. After you are done, wash your lips and put on your favorite lip balm to moisturize.
Is it worth the hype? Bottom line: yes! The e.l.f. lip exfoliator was super easy to use and it did make my lips visibly smoother so that my lipstick application stayed on longer and looked flawless. And at $3 per lip exfoliator, you can't go wrong. If you would like to get your hands on the e.l.f. lip exfoliator, click here or here.
