Bite Beauty 5 Night Fix For Lips Review

Like many people, I suffered from dry lips during the winter. I wrote a post about how I was looking for a product to combat dry lips and one of the items I had on my list was the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I’d heard people rave about it and I wanted to give it a try, but the $26 price tag made me hesitate.

That’s why I was so excited when I saw the 5 Night Fix for Lips! It contains mini versions of the Agave Lip Mask and their Scrub Stick. The set costs $15 and this way I could test out the lip mask before splurging on the full-sized version. You’re supposed to use the duo in combination- first you exfoliate your lips with the scrub stick and then you apply the lip mask, which is a thick balm. Within five nights, you should have soft and healthy lips.

Oh boy did I need this. During winter my lips were constantly chapped and it was unpleasant. I definitely noticed a difference within a couple days of using this set. Let’s talk about what I did and didn’t like:

PROS

The Agave Lip Mask does work. Once I started using it, it only took a few days for my lips to return to their normal state. It felt so good not to have chapped lips anymore!

They smell good. I believe both products contain honey and they have a pleasant honey aroma.

A little goes a long way. The lip mask is so thick and I only need a small amount to coat my lips. I’ve been using it for nearly a month now and I still feel like I have a lot of product left in my mini tube.

CONS

– The Scrub Stick is too gentle. It’s supposed to be an exfoliant, but I didn’t think it did a great job of getting rid of the dead skin on my lips. I have this $3 lip exfoliator from e.l.f. and I like it a lot better.

The Agave Lip Mask is very thick. This is a good and bad thing. It is really moisturizing, but it does make it a little difficult to get it out of the tube. Now that it’s a little warmer, the ingredients have softened up and it’s no longer as difficult to squeeze it out of the tube.

The Lip Mask is a bit sticky. I don’t love the way it feels on the lips. I usually put it on right before bed so that it can soak in overnight. When I go to bed, my lips feel sticky and there’s still a bit of sticky residue when I wake up the next morning. It’s not uncomfortable or anything like that, I just wish it wasn’t quite so sticky. I’ve combated that problem a bit by putting on a thin layer of Vaseline, then applying the lip mask on top. The Vaseline gives a little more slip, so I feel less like my lips are sticking together constantly.

THE SHORT VERSION

Overall, I’m happy that I purchased this little kit. I got to try out both products for a fraction of the price (and I think the packaging is totally adorable). The Agave Lip Mask really did rescue my lips and aside from a couple little issues, I think it’s great. The Scrub Stick doesn’t do too much for me, so I probably wouldn’t purchase that again. I would, however, buy the full-size version of the Agave Lip Mask.

Have you tried either of these products?

  • I haven’t tried but heard good things. Good to know about this product from your review. =)

  • I love when brands come out with trial kits like this. Bummer the scrub didn’t work :( The agave lip mask sounds like something I need to give a try! Personally, I like to slather on nuxe’s reve de miel before bed and wake up with hydrated lips :)

    • Nuxe’s Reve de Miel is another product that I’ve heard people rave about! Should I give it a try? What’s the texture like?

      • Totally just saw this comment… And the answer is yes you should try it! It’s texture is hard to describe. It’s thick like Vaseline but it isn’t sticky.

        • Good to know- thank you!

  • My lips have been horrible all winter, and still are, even though I use vaseline every night! Nothing is more unattractive than lipstick on dried, flaking lips. Glad to hear the mask worked – I would love to try it!

    Chic on the Cheap

    • Vaseline has been my go-to since I was a kid, but even Vaseline couldn’t save my lips this past winter! They were in such bad shape that I needed something to bring them back to normal.

  • I really want to try the agave lip mask! I’ve heard good things about it! I don’t mind thick lip balm, especially if it works really well, but it kind of sucks that it’s sticky.

    • I hadn’t really heard people talk about it feeling sticky, so maybe I’m just hypersensitive or something! Let me know what you think if you do give it a try :)
