I will admit that I have a fear of most products that exfoliate because I’m always afraid that I’m somehow going to get a granule of something lodged in one of my eyes. It’s a weird phobia, but it’s mine and I’m not sure if I’m ever going to get over it. Still, I occasionally find a product I want to try anyway. The latest has been Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant.
This product can be purchased from Sephora for $16. It comes in a purple tin with beautiful gold embellishments, and this product is sure to last for a very long time. A little bit goes a long way.
Overall, this product does a great job. It contains raw sugar to exfoliate the lips and oil to soften and moisturize the lips. My lips did feel noticeably softer each time that I used this product, and I loved the minty scent that made me feel fresh afterwards. Of all the lip exfoliators that I have ever tried, this has been my favorite so far, and $16 is also a great price for such a product.
Still, I’m not over my weird irrational fear of exfoliating products, so I will admit that I have given this away to a friend who loves Tarte. It may not feel as fresh or be as easy, but I do think that it’s okay to exfoliate lips with rubbing a damp washcloth over them and then finishing up with your favorite lip balm. That’s what I’ve gone back to doing.
