Trust me, these products can definitely used for gifting a friend/ girlfriend/ Wife because the product quality + Super cute packaging is enough to make a woman happy :p


Fragrance

  • All three variants have a mild sweet smell with little difference between them.
  • After applying the Lip Moisturisers, milder fragrance remains for a while reminding you that you have worn it (and feel good about it).

Note

The first 5 to 7 times when I used the product, I found its texture very oily and the product gave a very glossy finish to lips.
Due to liquid-y nature, product never stayed on my lips properly....even leaked out of my lips once.

 Also the colour on lips was very very light.

But later after some more use,the product became thick like a paste, and It felt more like a lip cream. 

The colour of the Lip Moisturiser was much more stronger, especially for Puerto Berry Blush.

So I will be talking about my experience after the product felt like a lip cream.


Colour

Puerto Berry Blush: Gives a bright pink-ish red colour with a glossy finish to the lips.

Review of Tropical Lip Moisturisers by Island Kiss


Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender: Gives a light lavender, almost no colour to the lips. Acts as a normal colour-less Lip Moisturiser with a glossy finish.


Review of Tropical Lip Moisturisers by Island Kiss

Cherry Blossom Flores: Gives a very mild, cream colour to the lips. Since I have dark upper lips, this Lip Moisturisers does not suit me at all.

Quality

  • For the price, I feel the quantity of product is very good, the tubes are of medium size and hold good amount of product.
  • If I lick my lips after the product dried, I get a weird taste which honestly freaks me out.
  • These lip moisturisers give a glossy, shiny look to lips and it does take a while for that to go.
  • Even after the lip moisturiser has dried, the colour still remains on lips.
  • I have noticed that, even after eating, drinking and other stuff, at the end of the day lips do looks naturally coloured. I'm very happy with the product in that aspect.

What I usually do is, after applying the lip moisturiser, I just dab a cloth over my lips once or twice.

This gives a very natural, very very very beautiful look to lips.

My mom asked me if had used lip scrub since my lips looked so good, and all my friends asked me if I had some home made remedy..

I had done this when I used Puerto Berry Blush on my lips



PROS
  • 100% natural & Non-toxic
  • Super cute Packaging
  • Good quantity of product
  • Colour looks very natural on lips
  • Serves its purpose
  • Handy to use

CONS
  • Some may not like the glossy finish
  • Quite expensive compared to other similar products
  • Two of the three variants don't give much colour to lips
  • The oily, watery nature that I mentioned previously. It made me think that lip moisturiser itself was like that, which is not true. It can be miss leading.

Bottom line
  • For people who don't mind splurging on products, this is the Best option from my opinion. 
  • The Packaging + Quantity of product + Quality of product adds up to a pleasant experience.

What do I hope from the brand?

I would love it if both Alma Vanilla & Inges Lavender and Cherry Blossom Flores had more pigmentation in their colour. 
It would be cool to have a lavender coloured Lip Moisturiser....I'm excited :p

Helloooo my analyzers!
Welcome back to my blog!!

I'm super pumped up today, I will be talking about a very important lip care product --> Lip Scrubs!

(If you follow me on Instagram, You know how crazy I'am about lip care treats!)

So, Today I bring you

Review of Lemon Meringue Pie Lip Scrub from SkinCafe


About the Brand

- They make absolutely fresh products using natural ingredients
- They create the products after the order is made, unlike other companies where products are bottled for a long time.
- Meaning, the products are created especially for the client. 
-Unlike other companies where preservatives are used as they are stored in ware houses for a long time, SkinCafe prepares the products freshly for a specific client.

More details available on their website

(I remember, I was told that my products would be delivered after some time. I was curious as to why and thought may be due to busy schedule this delay was there. But now I feel so much better & Happy to know that my product was prepared freshly and especially for me. I appreciate this approach by the company!!)


Lets get on with the Review......

It looks like this..



Price: INR 950 for 9gm

Use: Within 3 months of Hand-crafting Date


Packaging

  • It comes in a cute white and light green box, with the Skin Cafe logo on top
  • On the inside, sits a Tub of Lip Scrub of glass container
  • The Lip Scrub is made of glass container, and has the flavour name on top and details at the back.

I was also sent a card which has a list of all products, all variants of the products, name of the client(me), company details and few instructions. 
I really liked this card, it made me feel special (yay!!)














Quality
  • The lip Scrub is made of fine particles, Since this variant is Lemon Meringue Pie, the colour is yellow.
  • The texture is fine and particles stick to each other.
  • It has a sweet fragrance, and a sweet taste
  • The container is made of glass so have to be careful while carrying so that it doesn't break.




My thoughts

Before using this lip Scrub
  • The product will be very harsh on my lips
  • When I opened the product and saw that the particles were very fine I thought --> This is not going to work,I wont even feel the Exfoliation
  • I must use water to use the srub
  • All this will leave my lips very dry

After using this lip Scrub
  • The product was not at all harsh on my lips
  • The fine particles exfoliated my lips thoroughly, not too harsh, not mildly, in a perfect way
  • The lip Scrub is made in such a way that you don't need water or any liquid to use it, it provides good exfoliation and moisturization
  • Surprisingly, My lips felt more pink, fresh and moisturised.

Honestly, This Lip scrub has been a staple product in my beauty regime!!
I use it EVERY SINGLE WEEK, at least twice without fail!!
I have been benefited a lot, not only are my lips softer, smoother but also less dark.



PROS
  • Hand crafted and made especially for you (It is nice to see this approach compared to chemically preserved bottled products)
  • Use of fresh Ingredients
  • Attractive packaging
  • Many many many variants available (very interesting, tempting variants available)
  • Serves its purpose - Exfoliation
  • Quantity is more

CONS
  • Some may not prefer glass container, must be careful while using
  • Quite Expensive as compared to other similar products
  • Best to use within 3 month only (May not be a con for some)

Bottom line
  • For people who don't mind splurging on products, this is the Best option from my opinion. 
  • The PROS are more than CONS. 
  • Freshly Hand crafted products, made after order especially for client, what more do we want?
There are soooo many variants available in tempting flavours...
It is hard to control yourself when you see such delicious treats for your skin!!

SkinCafe also creates Lip Tint Balms, Lip butter and lip care Combos....head to their website to check them out!!
