ByBi Lip Buffer & Plumper
This is cute! I don’t really know this brand very well, but I was very impressed with the lip scrub (buffer) that left my lips looking and feeling 100% smoother. Even though I slather on Lanolips (and latterly, Sisley Lip Balm – I’d forgotten how utterly amazing it really is but it’s SO expensive at £49.50 HERE) daily, my lips have been battling with the cold weather. I’m never quite sure if it’s a good idea to exfoliate flaky lips or whether you should leave them well alone in case you tear the lip skin. So, I felt it was a bit of a risk but I shouldn’t have worried. The mix of sugar and strawberry extracts (it tastes a bit odd.. I thought it was honey-ish) was effective at sloughing off dry bits but didn’t upset my lips at all.
Compared to the extreme days of lip plumping with Lip Venom, the ByBi plumper in no way matches up. It’s a pleasantly tingling sensation from peppermint with a splash of blood orange (I couldn’t tell there even was any orange!) but I couldn’t really see any plumping. That said, historically, my lips aren’t hugely responsive to these cinnamon or menthol infused plumpers – if they’ve worked for you in the past I’ve no reason to think this wouldn’t do *something* but probably not a wow result. I did find it quite soothing and softening after the peppermint blast had gone. So, scrub is great, plumper is average.
The set is £16 HERE and includes the pouch.
