Update: Wow it looks like I’m pretty crazy over Baviphat products, right? Read about the reviews on Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Mask HERE & the Magic Mango Brightening Mask HERE. They are all in the same product range.
I tested on all the Baviphat products quite some time back, but was procrastinating on the blog posts. Procrastinating is like my middle name.
I had bought a trial size for the Peach gel from Baviphat because after my experience with the Mango Brightening Mask, I felt that it would be a smart thing to do before committing to a full-size one. This trial size costs me like SGD$2.50 from a local online blogshop.
And of course, the second you open up that container, the sweet light scent of peaches smells delicious. It is the same for all the Baviphat products in this range.
I think they are banking all their money on attracting us girly girls with their yummy fragrances + their cute packaging. Kind of like the Hello Kitty phenomenon.
But does the product work?
I scooped a little gel out & it was disappointing to know that it was kind of… clumpy. It felt like you mixed some flour & water unevenly.
I apply it on my face & smudge it a little, but realized that a tiny bit of the gel already started to clump even before I rub it around my face. See below photo.
I lightly massage the rest of the gel around my left cheek (yes I only used this on one side of the cheek) & again, was disappointed to see that it didn’t take much effort to get the gel to become dirt-like clumps. To be more specific, I just had to massage ONE circular motion & the gel just clumped on its own already. See photo below:
It didn’t feel like it was taking dirt off my face like my Bioessence Exfoliating Gel which I had reviewed HERE.
All it took was 1 or 2 rubs & the peach gel clumped up without much effort. It felt like the gel was designed to just roll into bits of dirt on its own. And these bits did not even look dirty.
For the Bioessence, I can see my blackheads significantly removed & the clumps of dirt actually look dirty. AND i can feel that my face has gotten cleaner after using it.
But for this Peach gel, I know it didn’t do anything for my face at all. Even the nice scent of the product is not enough to take away my disappointment after 6 uses on alternate days.
I know I will not be purchasing this in its full-size. =( The delicious peach scent is just not enough to tempt me.
Definitely no Berry Mii stamp & I am definitely sticking to my Bioessence gel.
