I am not into lip masks or scrubs but when I received this Aida Cosmetics Butter Cream Lip Mask in my Memebox (read my Memebox unboxing), I had to try it! I do not have much previous experience with branded lip masks to compare this to but I have used homemade scrubs (powdered sugar, lemon juice and coconut oil) to have some room for judgment. So let’s see if this masks is worth investing in!
Product: Aida Cosmetics Butter Cream Lip Mask – Vanilla and Cacao
Claim: This innovative soothing, leave-on lip mask replenishes moisture to the lips. Infused with active bio-active blend of organic walnut and Shea butter, this Butter Cream Lip Mask will nourish, smooth, and moisturize lips to prep lips for smooth lip makeup application.
How to Use: Apply the lip mask onto the dry lips. Wait 2 to 3 minutes. Use a tissue to wipe away the mask to reveal plumper lips.
I love the things I get in my Memebox. Even though I pay for it, it feels like a gift! So anyway, when I opened the Memebox this came in, this was not the product that I immediately was drawn to. I went for the eyeshadow pigments and the Too Cool For School blush. But when I finally opened this, I liked the packaging and the scent.
This comes in a little black tin twist open box with a colorful print. I love how cute it looked. The smell was also sweet – adequately sweet and chocolate-y to wake up my taste buds 😉 It does not taste very good though; not that I tasted it or anything.
I tried this lip mask right away and as expected loved the creamy soft texture of the mask. The scrub particles were tiny and not very abrasive. I am sure this is not intended to be a scrub-in-a-mask plus lips are delicate so we need minimal scrubbing action anyway. I wiped this off with a tissue and let the creaminess stay. It felt good! This mask is going to last me ages since I need so tiny amount to get the job done. It’s a sweet little thing that brings a smile to my face (lips?).
I cannot find the ingredient list or more details about the brand. I might have seen this brand in Olive Young when I was in Korea but cannot be sure. Thanks to Memebox I get to try so many different brands! I am going to get a good use out of this in the coming dry months!
I do not plan on repurchasing this first because it will last so long and second because I do not find it irreplaceable as a product individually or usage-wise. I have dry lips but do not feel the need to scrub daily and apply a mask specifically to the lips, I’m happy with a lip balm plus I like the homemade scrub/mask. But for special occasions or dry-lip emergencies, this is a nice one to consider. I recommend this to people who appreciate cute things and/or have really dry lips that need TLC.
