Recently while I was in an airport, I went for a quick shopping at M.A.C just to kill time (Even though I don’t need a reason to shop, I’m always ready with lame one).
I have had heard a lot about these cute lip scrubtious of the brand, so wanted to try them.
Let me give you more details about this tiny box.
Name of the product:
With limited flavors they had, chose this Summer Berry.
INR 1550 for 14 ml
The outer white hard paper cartoon has been designed uniquely with the name of the brand printed on it. You can find all the details about the product too on this.
Inside of this cartoon is of contrasting color – black. That makes it slight different than ordinary boring packing.
The inner box containing the scrub is of the same color as that of the flavor inside the box. For example, the brown sugar scrub box is brown, summer berry one is of purple.
The lid is made of soft rubber finish. The black lid is tight so no worries about spillage. The box is so tiny that you can carry it wherever you go.
The scrub is of color purple.
Fragrance is the key factor I chose this scrub. Ahhh it exactly smells like fresh berries.
Fragrance is quite strong for all the flavors. So if you have sensitive nose, please do try testers at the shops before buying. Even though all the flavors smell heavenly, but you know in case it’s empowering, you can skip it.
It’s kind of creamy base with minute scrub particles.
My Take On M.A.C lip scrubtious, Summer Berry:
I did apply a thin layer of this scrub on my dry lips and left it for few seconds. Then with the help of my forefinger, scrubbed my lips for a minute.
Result? Lips was soft with all the dead skin scrubbed off. Plus, it moisturized my lips. I didn’t had to run for a lip balm post scrubbing.
The salesgirl at the shop also had told me that the scrub leaves tint on your lips. But for this flavor, I couldn’t see a noticeable tint on my lips. But yes, I did observe the tint on my finger post scrubbing. May be it’s not that dark tint to be visible on pigmented lips.
What I liked about the M.A.C Lip Scrubtious:
- Cute and sturdy packing
- Travel friendly
- I love, love the fragrance
- Creamy soft texture
- Does the job of removing dead skin cells, very well
- Leaves lips soft and moisturized
What can be improved:
- Tub packing is unhygienic. I have to dip in my fingers to take the product out.
- If your lips are pigmented like mine, do not expect much of tint post scrubbing.
- The fragrance might be empowering for those with sensitive nose.
- Some might find it pricey for a lip scrub(Oh come on, it’s M.A.C). But little goes long way. This tub is going to last for a good amount of time for me.
Repurchase and Suggestions:
I loved the scrub for leaving my dry lips soft and moisturized. Once I finish this tub, planning to buy different flavor. Even though berries are my favorite, other M.A.C lip scrubtious flavors are tempting too.
If your lips are dry and would like to’invest’ in a good scrub, then do try this one. You will love the results.
