We do not get to see lip scrubs that often in Indian beauty market, but the growing popularity of matte lipsticks really demand exfoliation. The Mango lip scrub by The Face Shop looked cute and affordable (was on discount) hence no two thoughts before picking it up. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 670/- (approx.)
• Remove dead skin and impurities to create smooth and gentle lips.
• Wash off type.
• Refreshing peach scent.
Directions for use:
• Apply a moderate amount to lips and offer rolling, rinse off.
My Experience with The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Scrub:
The lip scrub comes in a cute little tub which is attractive and small enough to be carried along to trips. As it is not meant for on-the-use I really do not mind the tub packaging. The plastic body is sturdy enough and has all the required information mentioned on it.
The texture is like good old Vaseline with small granules which are not harsh on the lips. My only concern is that the number of granules is less and I end up digging out more product than required. Also worth mentioning is that, it turns to an oily texture when rubbed on the lips.
I was expecting it to smell like ripe mangoes but it was peach, nevertheless, it is equally yummy and delicious. I tried licking up a bit 😛 but it doesn’t really taste of anything. It scrubs well and does not dry out the lips. It is a good option if you have dry flaky lips as we do not have many brands doing lip scrubs, sadly. It would have been great if the proportion of the granules to the base was more.
Pros of The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Scrub:
• Little quantity required.
• Granules are not harsh.
• Effective scrubbing.
• Yummy fragrance.
Cons of The Face Shop Mango Seed Lip Scrub:
• Tub packaging.
• Mild scrubbing.
