The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant seems like a mixture of Vaseline and white sugar finely blended and mixed together. The Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is said to contain raw sugar granules that are suspended in a soothing balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Sometimes my lips can get extremely dry due to the heat from the sun and not enough intake of water. At this point in time, my lips would appear chapped to the point where the dead skin is actually peeling off. With this lip problem that I have, I decided to the purchase the Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant.
The product packaging does not have any instructions on how to use, but since I am not new to lip exfoliant I stick to using the usual procedure. Well it all boils down to how dry/chap my lip is:
Extremely dry: I would wet my lips prior and apply the Tarte Maracuja Lip exfoliant to my lips and let it sit for a while then I would massage it in and wipe away with a wet towel.
Dry: I would damp my lips with water then proceed to apply the product to my lips then I massage the product with my fingers tips or a soft toothbrush.
The Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant is a thick sugary scrub made especially for exfoliating the lips. For soft, moisturizing lips a little bit of the product goes a long way. When my lips are extremely dry and chapped, I find that the product does not really do a great job at exfoliating. Instead, it leaves dead skin hanging from the lips meanwhile other parts of the lips feel soft. I remember I had to use small size scissors to cut/remove the hanging skin.
If the Maracuja Lip Exfoliant sugary ingredient would melt off the dead skin area and prevent my lips from bleeding then this product would be an A+. It just doesn’t buff off the dead skin cells efficiently.
