Hihi! Shall do a review of... Baviphat's Mango Steam Scrub! I've only used it once btw, and it already made itself a blacklisted product in my list. Read on to find out why :)
Check out its face and Asian peace sign. hehe.
Frankly, I've never heard of the term "steam scrub" so I thought it was just a scrub that was steamed and therefore, a steamed scrub. Infact, I thought that this scrub was made of steamed mangoes.
If you could see the scrub, it actually has some kinda brownish beads inside. Idk but I keep thinking its the mango seed, minced! It smells like fresh and yummy mangoes, and the best thing about this product is the smell! Its so delicious and makes me wanna have a mango rightaway!
Its like jelly actually. With bits of mango seeds hehe. Fine they're just scrub thingy, not literally seeds.
I thought it was just a normal scrub, but when I apply it on my face,..... nah there isn't anything special. But when I rubbed it, OMG IT BURNS. Its like applying chilli slimming gel on your face! And because I have the habit of covering my whole face with soap (duh, we all wash our whole face), I applied it around my eyes too (before the burning starts) and it burnt!!! The irritation did not go away, only after 15 minutes? The aftermath sensation was kinda bad too. It has an overly minty albeit hot feeling on your face, and worse around the eyes, mouth and nostrils. Could not help but rinse it away like straightaway. They said to "massage it for 3-5 minutes" but I can't take it for 5 seconds with just minor massaging.
So some points about this:
-Does not foam up; its a scrub, not a face wash
-Smells absolutely like fresh and yummy mangoes
-Contains brown beads for exfoliation
-DO NOT APPLY AROUND EYES AND MOUTH
-The scrub heats up as you massage it onto your skin
-Don't rub too fast, or IT BURNS
-Best to try it on the back of your hand first, to prevent a "surprise"
-No improvement of my skin. Feels the same.
-NOT ADVISED FOR SENSITIVE SKIN!
Hehe thank goodness its just a sample. I would never buy this :P
