Baviphat Apple Jelly Lip Scrub doesn’t taste like apple

Baviphat is a Korean brand that make a number of quirky make up and skincare products.  

My lips have been incredibly dry over the winter season so I decided to seek out a lip scrub that isn’t too scrubby (like Lush’s) but is still effective.  Baviphat’s Apple Jelly Lip Scrub is both cute and cheap so I decided to purchase that:

The container is a plastic apple – sweet – and is a little pot around the same size as a lip balm. 

The scrub itself is a very squishy soft balm texture, it’s a reddish pink colour with little scrub particles.  It does indeed, smell of apples! 

The texture of the balm is quite oily and soft, I think that there isn’t enough scrub in it for me – the particles get lost somewhat in the balm.  Then a another big problem with this is the taste – does it taste of apple? No! It tastes like a horrible soapy shampoo-y taste, a bit like when you accidentally get a strong shampoo like Head and Shoulders in your mouth. It’s pretty disgusting, and it lingers on the tongue too.

When you are scrubbing your lips, I think it is inevitable you will get some in your mouth. Baviphat Apple Jelly Lip Scrub doesn t taste like apple 2

After using this I thought my lips felt a bit smoother but I was left with this slightly dryness a bit like with the Lush sugar scrubs – ok so they smooth the surface a bit by my lips aren’t looking plump and healthy at all!

I’ve decided this product isn’t for me, I’d prefer something that tastes decent (or of nothing!) and has better moisturising abilities!

What is your favourite lip scrub?
