I picked up the Baviphat Apple Jelly Lip Scrub during my first visit to the local Baviphat counter at Parkson Pavilion. I bought it for one reason – it was cute. Look at it!
Its so tiny and so adorable. Not much bigger than a 20 sen coin and easily held in your palm. It even smells of apple. A strong sweet smell of red apples, not the sharp smell of green apples.
I was told that to use it, you should just scoop out a little, apply all over your lips, scrub and then wipe off. So, I took it on a test run.
The scrub is very fine. You don’t get the large granules and rough texture usually associated with scrubs.
In fact, it feels almost like a lip balm with bits in it. It actually tastes rather sweet and a little like… soap? I don’t like how it tastes.
I apply it on dry lips, rub gently and then tissue off. My lips do feel soft and smoother after using it. It will help to get rid of flaky skin if your lips are very dry, but my lips always feel a bit funny after I use it. Almost like they are drier than before. Very odd indeed.
I will try to use it up (if I can), but I will not repurchase. Its pretty affordable at RM19.90 and its supposed to be one of Baviphat’s bestsellers.
Pros: Cute, Affordable
Cons: Tastes sweet and “soapy”, Left my lips feeling smooth but dry
I love the packaging, but I think it failed me as a product. I did not quite like it. Perhaps it is because that sweet soapy taste lingers a little.
Have you tried this one? I believe its the only lip scrub they have that comes in a tub. The other little tubs are tinted lip balm – adorable, but not quite me.
Baviphat Apple Jelly Lip Scrub retails at RM19.90 at Baviphat counters at Parkson Pavilion and Parkson Sungei Wang Plaza
