Before going to the list of best lip scrubs or exfoliators, first, let’s know some basic ideas about lip exfoliation or scrub.

Why You Need to Scrub Your Lips

Often our lips become dry, chapped or cracked. For that, our lips look uneven and slightly dark, and of course not looking beautiful also. Even the severe dryness can cause bleeding as lips are very thin and sensitive.

Exfoliation removes the dry, chapped, cracked or dead skin/cells of the lips. So, lips get back their plain and pretty look. Exfoliation reduces the patches, darkness or dark spots on the lips. You can also minimize the aging signs, wrinkles, or fine lines from your lips if you regularly exfoliate them.

When You Should Exfoliate Your Lips

Scrubbing the lips once a week is best, but not more than twice. The best time is at night before sleeping or in the morning. If you use toothbrush based exfoliators, you can scrub your lips in the morning. And, if you use other scrubs except for toothbrush, you can exfoliate your lips at night.  After exfoliating your lips, you should use a good moisturizer on your lips.

Which Lip Scrubs Are Good

Homemade Scrubs

You can exfoliate your lips either with homemade scrubs or readymade ones from online shops or your departmental stores. Read “How to exfoliate lips naturally at home”. Here I discussed some natural ingredients that you can use as lip exfoliators. Honey, sugar, olive oil, baking soda, rose water, glycerin, soft bristle straight toothbrush, etc. are the most common natural scrub elements for dark lips. Homemade lip scrubs really work great.

Readymade Scrubs

Nowadays, readymade scrubs for dark lips are also much effective because various healthy materials (vitamin, essential oil, moisturizer, etc.) are added to them to turn your lips soft, fuller and moisturized.

It is not essential to moisturize your lips if you use market-bought scrubs because most of them contain rich moisturizers and other rich elements.

How We Pick The Product

We recommend products by researching Amazon best-selling items, user’s reviews, YouTube reviews, talk show interviews, higher rated products, most reviewed items, celebrity gossip, daily publications, and magazine interviews with celebrity, dermatologist or doctor.

We research the product’s literature from the trusted sources. We frequently refer many leading publications – Elle, Allure, Cosmopolitan, She Knows, Good Housekeeping, Reader’s Digest, Best Reviews, Marie Claire, Women’s Health, Vouge, Buzzfeed, etc.

We also often analysis the product’s information from the reliable sources (who make the deep testing) like Cook’s Illustrated, America’s Test Kitchen, Consumer Reports, Consumer Testing Laboratories, etc.

It’s better to note that every product does not work for everyone. The result may be varied for different skin tones, types, and conditions. So, often your dermatologist may give you the better recommendations which product you should use for your skin.
