    I was just wondering. some lip balms or scrubs are actually edible so I was wondering if there are any do's and don't. I ask because I use them alot, I get very chapped and dry lips and I have a bad habit of biting them and making them bleed when they're dry.

    Hey!

    I use Lush bubble gum lip scrub a lot but I just wipe it off with a wipe or cotton pad & it hasn't caused me any problems :) x

    I love Lush as well! So good :D but I haven't really thought about lip balms or lip glosses, I just imagined that they wouldn't cause any problems lol
