Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit that came in my Spring CAUSEBOX. As you all know, I adore lip products, so I had high hopes for this. [info in italics taken from the Three Ships website, and kit packaging]

Here’s a little bit of info about this Toronto based, Canadian brand:

We embrace this less is more mindset and use this philosophy to chart our course as a company. We believe you don’t need a long list of unnecessary ingredients in your skincare products, and you don’t need a 12 step skincare routine to achieve beautiful results.


Our goal was to solve the problems we faced as consumers and create the most effective and affordable natural skincare products available.

This is why every Three Ships product is made with 100% natural ingredients and is certified cruelty-free. It’s why nothing goes to market unless it has been scientifically proven to work. And it’s why all of our products will forever be under $40 USD.

The Three Ships Lip Treatment Kit is composed of the Vanilla Lip Exfoliator, and the Buttercream Hydrating Lip Mask. Let’s look at the Lip Exfoliator first:

This triple-action scrub exfoliates and conditions lips. Fine sugar crystals remove dry skin / flakes and make lips look plump and full while natural shea butter and oils hydrate and soothe. This scrub contains zero artificial colors and is naturally flavoured with vanilla.

This is a beautiful lip scrub, it mega exfoliates, but at the same time adds so much hydration. My lips are SO SMOOTH after I use this!

Now, let’s take a look at the Buttercream Hydrating Lip Mask:

Natural oils of sunflower, coconut and avocado deeply replenish moisture to dry lips. Use overnight for extra soft lips when you wake up.

As a lip balm addict, this lip mask is a DREAM! So hydrating. It can be used night and day!

The combination of the scrub and mask is the perfect recipe for achieving soft and smooth lips!

Have you tried this kit?

Thanks for reading have a beautiful day!

Disclosure: In case you missed it at the beginning, this kit came in my CAUSEBOX subscription box that I paid for.

Sudsatorium Great Gatsby Lip Scrub Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Great Gatsby Lip Scrub from Sudsatorium that I got in my most recent mini-haul from This is my first time trying out anything from this Canadian company – they also make lip balms, bath and body stuff, and haircare. [info in italics taken from the]

Sudsatorium Great Gatsby Lip Scrub

A lip scrub fit for Daisy Buchanan, our favourite fictional heartbreaker with a penchant for lavish shindigs, fast cars, and most importantly mint juleps. Inspired by her excellent choice of libation, the Sudsatorium Great Gatsby lip scrub is made with refreshing spearmint essential oil to soothe sore, dry lips and fair trade vanilla extract to lock in all of that moisturizing jojoba oil for long lasting softness and beautiful sheen. You’ll surely enjoy the gentle tingling sensation of mint as it lingers on your kissers.

The Great Gatsby Lip Scrub is AWESOME – and the ingredients are simple:

Fair Trade Organic Cane Sugar (Sucrose), Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis), Fair Trade Organic Spearmint Oil (Mentha Viridis), Organic Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia)


The sugar and oil blend is super moisturizing, and gives the perfect amount of exfoliation – not harsh or scratchy at all – leaving my lips smooth and soft.

I definitely want to try more from Sudsatorium, I have a few things added to my wishlist to try once I clear out more of my stash.

Niu Body Piña Colada Sugar Lip Polish Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a review of the Niu Body Piña Colada Sugar Lip Polish that came in my April 2018 Petit Vour subscription box. I didn’t realize until I started reading about the brand that they are Canadian! I’d never heard of Niu Body before – they are based in Toronto! [info in italics from Petit Vour website]

Niu Body Piña Colada Sugar Lip Polish

Piña Coladas = summer in a glass. Just as delicious and also reveals the softest pout possible. Sugar to exfoliate off dead cells and rich oils to moisturize, this scrub will quickly become the sweetest part of your beauty routine. 

Niu Body Piña Colada Sugar Lip Polish

Apply generous amount of scrub to lips with finger. Exfoliate by massaging sugar crystals against skin. Wash (or lick!) off excess for a sweet treat.

Niu Body Piña Colada Sugar Lip Polish

I mentioned in my Petit Vour unboxing that I was hoping that this would not be overly coconut scented as I have a fairly strong aversion to the scent. Well, it definitely does have somewhat of a coconut scent, but the scent doesn’t stick round after you remove the lip polish thankfully. I have to say despite the coconut scent, this lip polish is really great! It removes dead skin, and leaves my lips so smooth and soft. I will actually continue to use it since it works so well, I’ll just try not to breathe while using it. It also faintly tastes like coconut, so I just wipe it off instead of licking it off. The Sugar Lip Polish is available in thee different scents – Piña Colada, Coconut, and Vanilla. I think I would love the Vanilla one.
