Review: Baviphat Apple Lip Scrub

♫ Bii - 켠 후 (转身之后 韩语版)

Today I'll be doing a review *gasp* on Baviphat's Apple Jelly Lip Scrub.

Like I mentioned at the end of my previous post, I'd found out about this product from another blog, and decided to get one for myself to see if it was any good.

When I stopped by Sephora KLCC last Saturday, I was really fascinated by the Baviphat display there. It was so cheerful and colourful, especially with the extremely eye-catching fruit-shaped containers that are their signature products.

The Apple Jelly Lip Scrub (6g) is priced at RM19.90 and packaged in a cute little green apple-shaped screw top container. It's so tiny, it can fit snugly into the palm of your hand. O_o It has a very nice scent of apples which is not too overpowering.

Contains sugar, rice and apple extracts that moisturizes the lips while gently removing dead skin cells. Nourishes your lips to keep it moist and soft. Regular exfoliating of lip keratin improves overall staying power of lip gloss and lipstick and prevents feathering of lipstick.

After using the lip scrub.

After using the scrub a few times over the past few days, I must say that the initial effects are quite good, but I seem to find that 1 or 2 days after I use it, my lips go back to (almost) their original condition. Maybe my lips are drier than I thought, or perhaps the hot weather is a factor.

Anyway, the thing I dislike the most about this jelly lip scrub is that it is very hard to remove. Normally I use my index finger to scoop out a small amount and rub it all over my lips. However, when it comes to washing it off, it leaves a sticky texture on the skin that can only be fully removed using makeup remover. The stickiness isn't like glue either; it's the kind of sticky and water-droplets-will-stay-on-it kind of oily, like some lip gloss. Really, really dislike it.

✓ Pros: Effectively removes dry, flaky and dead skin from lips, leaving lips feeling smooth and soft. Comes in a small, travel-sized container.
✗ Cons: Less effective when scrubbed on wet lips. Hard to remove with normal soap, best way is to use makeup remover.

All I can say is, even though the packaging is cute and the scent is nice, I probably won't repurchase this item. It's too much hassle to remove every time I use it.
