Introducing Anour Yummy Berry Lip Scrub in my brief review!
Anour is a new brand in my beauty collection, and this lip scrub is my initial experience with their products. Acquired through the Symtten app along with 16 other items, it’s sad to see that comment section of my review post about Symtten app includes some concerns raised by my readers regarding their customer service. It’s disheartening when a brand neglects customer concerns post-purchase. Moving on to the product at hand, Anour Yummy Berry Lip Scrub is accessible on platforms like Amazon and Nykaa, though their official page seems inactive. This leaves me somewhat skeptical about the brand’s existence. I recommend thorough research before making a purchase.

How to use it:
Using a lip scrub is a simple and effective way to exfoliate your lips, removing dead skin cells and leaving them soft and smooth. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use a lip scrub:
- Start with clean lips: Ensure that your lips are clean and free from any lip balm, lipstick, or other products. You want the scrub to directly contact your lips for the best results.
- Dampen your lips: You can dampen your lips slightly with water. This helps the scrub adhere better and makes the exfoliation process more effective.
- Apply the lip scrub: Take a small amount of the lip scrub onto your fingertip or a lip brush. Gently apply the scrub to your lips using circular motions. Make sure to cover the entire surface of your lips.
- Massage in circular motions: Using your fingertip or a soft toothbrush, gently massage the scrub into your lips using circular motions. Focus on any dry or flaky areas. Be gentle to avoid irritation.
- Leave it on or rinse off: Some lip scrubs are designed to be left on for a few minutes to allow the ingredients to moisturize and nourish your lips. Others may recommend immediate rinsing. Follow the instructions on the product you’re using.
- Rinse or wipe off: If the lip scrub requires rinsing, use lukewarm water to remove the scrub from your lips. You can also use a damp cloth or cotton pad to wipe away the scrub.
- Pat dry: Gently pat your lips dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing, as your lips may be more sensitive after exfoliation.
- Apply lip balm or moisturizer: Finish by applying a nourishing lip balm or moisturizer to keep your lips hydrated. This step is essential to maintain the smoothness achieved through exfoliation.
- Repeat as needed: Depending on your lips’ condition and the scrub’s recommendations, you can use a lip scrub 1-3 times a week or as needed to maintain soft, smooth lips.
Packaging: This scrub is packaged in a small plastic jar with a secure black screw cap. The jar is transparent, allowing for easy visibility of the lavender-colored scrub inside. The label matches the product color, also in lavender. The font size on the label is quite small, requiring close attention to read details such as ingredients, price, quantity, and other information.
My opinion about the product: The scent of ‘Yummy Berry’ is subtly sweet, not overwhelmingly reminiscent of a typical fruity berry blend, despite its vibrant purple hue. Additionally, you can use it in its dry form. Simply take a small, pea-sized amount and gently rub it onto your lips using your fingertips. I applied it using a combination of back-and-forth and small circular motions. After exfoliating, I rinsed it off with water, dried my lips with a tissue to remove any excess dry skin, and then applied lip balm.
This scrub removes dead skin effectively and regular use of it making my lips smooth and nourished. The scrub particles are gentle in nature so in winters I am using it daily before going to bed. However in summers I will be using twice in a week. Definitely a good option to include in your skincare routine 🙂
