29 First Crush lip scrub VS. e.l.f. lip scrub Review and Swatches

very moisturizing and light exfoliation

e.l.f  is extremely gritty ( uncomfortable)  and not moisturizing

Target Website states:
First Crush Lip Scrub, like a mini facial for your lips. This delicate lip exfoliating treatment enriched with grape seed extract, coconut oil, apricot seed powder and shea butter will leave your lips feeling smooth and prepped for intense hydration. This luxurious grape seed anti-oxidant formula will keep your lips looking young and vibrant. 

I like searching Target's web sight once a week or so to see new products they carry or have in stock. 

A few weeks back I found the "29 by Lydia Mondavi" brand  which I had never heard of before. 

The first crush lip scrub sounded promising with the description they gave.  So for $10.00, I decided to try it. 

Very happy to say this is a great product and works really well.  

I have compared it to the e.l.f. lip scrub and hands down this is 100 X better.  e.l.f. is $3.00, but truth be told $7.00 price difference is well worth it.

I know many of you love the e.l.f. once but for me personally it is way too harsh on my lips and doesn't moisturize at all.

I have tried it two different times (different tubes) to see if maybe the first one was a dud, but I had the same result with both. I ended up throwing them both away.

If you are in the market for a good, affordable lip scrub this may just be what you are looking for.

Have you ever heard of this brand?
