Review: Ellana Minerals Lip Scrub

It’s been over a month since my last review and that is not because I have nothing to review anymore. In fact, there are a few products calling out my name to give them time and attention but I wasn’t motivated enough to sit down in front of my computer and finish even just one paragraph. Well, maybe one reason for this lack of motivation is spending my free time playing a Facebook game which my husband and I are currently addicted to. LOL!

Anyways, here I am now, trying to get back to blogging with zest and motivation life before… I hope! :D This time, I will be reviewing Ellana Minerals Lip Scrub which I got early this year.

I have always been vocal about my love for lipstick since I ain’t that good when it comes to eye makeup, contouring and such. I would just wear lipstick, sometimes bold and bright, to compensate for that. With this, it is very important that my lips stays well-moisturized and free of cracks and the likes. I learned about this product from other bloggers and from beauty forums some time ago but I wasn’t that eager to get one for myself since I’m okay with my natural lip scrub, white sugar. But considering the good reviews of this scrub, I finally gave in and got one from Zalora.

Product Description

For a perfectly polished pout, use our sweet-smelling Strawberry Vanilla Lip Scrub to regularly exfoliate your lips!


Packaging and Appeal. The packaging of this lip scrub is nothing extraordinary. It comes in a transparent shallow pot with cover bearing the product’s name. The pot packaging for me is a bit unhygienic as you have to dip your fingers in it thus increasing the risk of exposing the rest of the product to germs. It would have been better if it comes in a tube.

To avoid contamination, I suggest using a Q-tip/cotton buds instead of dipping your fingers in the pot.

Scent. Oh I love the scent of this product! It smells so good I sometimes want to eat it. The smell vanish when you take it off your lips though.

Texture. While the texture is great for dealing with flaky lips, it is a bit coarse for me. It would have been better if the grain is finer to protect the lips from abrasion.

When scrubbing, be reminded to do so gently to avoid abrasion.

Ingredients. Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Polyamino Sugar Condensate Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate, Isononyl Isononanoate Butyrospermum parkii Cera Alba Tocopherol Acetate Mica Silicone Dioxide Fragaria ananassa D&C 8 CI 45350 Vanilla planifolia

Price. One pot costs Php 220 which I think will last for a couple or so months even if used once or twice a week.

Availability. The product is not available in stores/malls in my city so I have to order online and have it shipped to my address. You can get it from Ellana Minerals Official website or

Would I buy this product again?
Maybe, but sugar can do what it can so I don’t really mind.


Ellana Minerals Lip Scrub is a great product to try when looking for ways to address your dry and flaky lip. However, if for some reason you can’t have it, you can always use what you already have at home - sugar!
