Hi my angels, I did a quick DIY for lip scrub a while back because Lip scrubs are not easily available in India. Indian Luxury brand Forest Essentials has this lip scrub which I am going to review today, but it is on the costlier side for 8 grams of product. In fact, this is the only proper lip scrub available in India up till today.

In Detail Forest Essentials Lip Scrub Cane Sugar Review and My Experience
The FE cane sugar lip scrub comes in this cute and classy little plastic tub packaging. Its a see through tub with a shiny golden screw lid. There is a protective tin foil attached for added protection which prevents product spillage from manufacturer to the consumer. All details about the product are mentioned on the packaging itself so you don’t have to go check out the websites for every small information.
The scrub has a very sweet floral smell to it. It looks off white in colour. The texture of the scrub is very buttery smooth. The scrub particles are actually sugar with softened edges. So it does not feel harsh on the lips which is a very sensitive area. These sugar granules are just the right size, they don’f feel super big or too small. The actual base of the scrub feels like butter. It has some amazing moisturising ingredients like jojoba oil, olive oil, kokum butter, beeswax, vitamin E, orange peel oil; which means I scrub my lips at the same time I am not making them too dry.
How I Use it
I like to take a small amount of it (as shown in the pictures below) and scrub my lips gently with it. I make sure I cover all my lips including the edges. The sugar particles actually melt away after a couple of minutes. I wipe off the extra butter from my lips using a tissue paper. I make sure there is no remaining residue of the sugar particles or extra butter on my lips. PS. I do not wash my lips after using this since it contains literally all natural and organic ingredients.
The Forest Essential Cane Sugar Lip scrub removes all dead cells from the lips and takes care of the little bumps. It makes my lips feel super soft and plump. Because this has all the amazing moisturising ingredients in it, I never feel the need to apply a lip balm. So I directly apply my favourite lipstick on top. If I am not using a lipstick that day, I just let it be and it keeps my lips moisturised for a good 5-6 hours on its own.
Overall I am really loving this lip scrub. If you feel like indulging a little, definitely check out this lip scrub. I hope FE comes up with more flavours of lip scrubs. Its always nice to have more options. If you feel this sounds a bit costly, you can always make a lip scrub easily at home within 2 minutes, follow this DIY – How to make a Sugar lip scrub at home.
