Review: TONY MOLY Kiss Kiss Lip Scrub3:44:00 AM
How cute is that thing? ^o^
I got this Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lip Scrub from my SASA purchase the other day. I was in need of a lip scrub because my lips are starting to get chapped during the cold rainy season, and after some online store browsing my options was either this Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lip Scrub or the Korres Lemon Lip Scrub.
Being a hardcore packaging-whore I of course chose the Tony Moly one just because it has a cute lippie shape ;p
Tony Moly is a Korean brand and their packaging are mostly unique and cute, just like this lip scrub. How appropriate is it, a lip scrub inside a tiny lip-shaped container? This alone looks so cute on my bathroom vanity, very eye-catching.
According to SASA website, this Kiss Kiss lip scrub is formulated with natural botanical ingredients. It removes dead skin cells without irritating the lips. It also contains Argan Oil to soften and hydrate the lips.
The packaging is tiny but I only use a small portion of the scrub every time I scrub my lips, which is pretty much adequate. So I think this would last me a couple of months. I used this 1-2 times a week or whenever my lips needed some tlc.
When you open the cap / top portion of the packaging, you will find another cap inside that secured the products, so I guess this is pretty safe for traveling because it won't spill.
The texture of the scrub is medium thick paste that has a light consistency. You can see that there are lots of tiny granules in the product that are meant to scrub our lips. This doesn't feel harsh at all, you almost can't feel the granules scrubbing your lips. The formula is also almost tasteless so if some of the scrubs accidentally get in your mouth, you won't taste anything weird. So that's a plus for me.
I used it by gently massaging it on my lips with circular motion for 1-2 minutes, and then I rinse it with lukewarm water. The application process is super easy and without a mess.
The result is a smoother lips surface that makes my lipstick applied smoothly on my lips. It also help eliminates the chapped lips situation that I previously had.
Overall, I like this product and would probably buy it again if I ran out of this one.
