Hello babes! I feel like lip scrubs have become more popular over the last couple of years, as more and more brands have brought out their version of them. They come in all kinds of different flavors and textures, but the one I will be talking about today is a coffee lip scrub, so keep reading if you are interested!
Packaging + Price
The lip scrub and lip balm come as a set, and they retail on the Frank Body website for 19.95€. I had ordered from this website before, when they were a smaller company and when the products still had to come from Australia. However, they now have distribution centers in Europe and the US as well, because I did not have to pay any import taxes.
The lip scrub comes in a small pot, containing 0.51 fl.oz. (15 ml), and the balm comes in a squeeze-tube and contains the same amount of product. I have to be honest, at first I thought this was not a lot of product for a kind of high price. However, a little bit goes a long way, so I don’t think I will need a new jar or tube soon.
If you are unfamiliar with this brand, they do have a different way of marketing their products, just check out the website to see what I mean. Another example of this, is on the back of the lip balm, where it says this product is only tested on babes.
The scent of the lip scrub is like really sweet coffee, due to the sugar and coffee in the product. However, it does not – I repeat: does not – taste as good as it smells, let me tell you. Do not try to eat it, resist temptation.
As far as the scrub goes, this is actually a really good lip scrub. The coffee and grains of salt act as scrubbing particles, which are big enough to scrub nicely for your lips. And do you know how some lip scrubs do break up your skin but then do not remove the excess skin so you have excess skin hanging on your lips? This one does not do that. It scrubs nicely but at the same time makes sure your lips are really smooth as well.
It is easy to wipe off as well, I usually just grab a tissue and go over my lips twice and the product is gone.
I am not completely sure about the lip balm yet. It is a good lip balm, very hydrating, but the scent kind of puts me off, and it has this really thick texture. It is similar to the Elizabeth Arden 8h cream, if you are familiar with that one. I did have a problem with scent as well with that one in the beginning, but now I love it, so I’m guessing this will go the same way. As far as the thickness is concerned, I do like it because you do not need a lot to cover your lips, because it does spread out nicely.
Moreover, on the website it says that you can use this lip balm on cuticles, brows, lashes or cheekbones as well, so it is a multi-purpose balm.
I really like this lip scrub and lip balm duo. It has some really great ingredients in both products, which help with collagen production, and keeping your lips hydrated and nourished throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this, so look into it if you are looking for a great lip scrub and balm.
