Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! Review

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

I picked up one of the Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! ($3.99) because I have dry, flaky as hell lips that look all kinds of zombie crusty in the Winter. See? This is why I do not like long-wearing liquid lipstick. Matte, long wear lipsticks were created to torture people with dry lips.

I blame steam heat. I keep telling myself I’m going to get a room humidifier for my bedroom as my skin, lips, and eyes would thank me for it but I haven’t done so yet. I swear steam heat will suck every bit of moisture from your body.

Anyway, Yes To has been a roll releasing all sorts of cream masks, peels, and exfoliaters in single use packages that range from $3 to $4 bucks each. Of course, being the mask junkie I am, I had to pick up a few and the Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! ended up in my cart as well.

Here’s my thoughts and review.

Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! is a two step lip kit that includes a sugar lip scrub and lip mask to smooth, soften, and de-flake dry lips.

The first step is to physically exfoliate your lips which you’ll be doing with the Yes to Coconut Ultra Hydrating Exfoliating Lip Scrub. The mask actually tears off into two separate envelopes. Once you tear open the first envelope you’ll find a smaller packet of lip scrub inside. This packet includes a TON of lip scrub. It’s actually way too much for a single use. I experienced the same problem with the Yes to Miracle Oil Argan Oil Mud Mask. This just include a little too much product. I appreciate how generous they are but it feels a little wasteful. You might be able to somehow reseal the scrub and place it in a ziploc bag maybe to use a few more times but I’m skeptical how fresh it’ll remain as it might harden over time since it isn’t completely sealed away from air exposure. They seriously give you enough lip scrub for like five uses at least.

I loved the scrub and I feel like they should release it in a pot as an individual purchase! I’d totally buy it. It’s a coconut oil based sugar scrub that has a grainier, oily texture. It does a fine job buffing flaky dead skin away without being overly harsh. It tastes like coconut oil and sugar, no generic coconut fragrance or flavor here. To me it tasted like coconut water! It did a nice job exfoliating my lips and left them soft and smooth.

After scrubbing you’ll rip open the second envelope and apply the Yes to Coconut Plumping Lip Mask to your lips. Sadly, the lip patch was a little disappointing! I’ve used a ton of gel lip patches from Korea like Etude House’s Cherry Lip Gel Patch and I was thinking that the Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! Set’s lip mask would be along the same lines. This is actually a thin, paper mask that’s not very saturated and feels dry-ish out of the package. There are some warnings on the directions that state it’ll tingle and if it becomes unbearable to remove the mask. I experienced no tingle and left the mask on for the full 15 minutes. I didn’t feel like the mask did much of anything. Apparently it is supposed to smooth and plump lips but I didn’t notice any change in the volume of my lips.

Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! is a fun product but…mmmm….! The scrub portion of this treatment was great but I felt like I wasted a lot of it. They should consider putting it in a resealable pot or maybe giving you a little less to work with. And the lip patch was a bit disappointing as it didn’t really do much of anything. A better option might be to indulge in Chapstick Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub and maybe grab a Asian gel lip patch or two as you’ll likely get the same or better results using the combination of these two products!

Yes to Coconut 2-Step Lip Kit Pucker Up! is launching now at drugstores or get it at ulta.com.

    Yes, I bought the Grapefruit all about face one and it was way too much product. I ended up throwing the rest away since I figured it would dry out before I could use it again.

    • Isabella Muse

      I did that with the yes to miracle oil ones. I thought I’d reseal them in a baggie, but I honestly thought they’d harden before I got the chance to use them again!

    I ordered this and its arriving today…darn.

    Have you tried the green tea bag lip exfoliating hack? Allure wrote about it. It’s the only thing that really works for my dry scaly winter lips. Affordable as well!

    • Isabella Muse

      No! tell me more! I haven’t tried anything with green tea bags! I’ll try anything for these dry lips. P.S. Let me know what you think of these scrub/mask!

      • Jes

        Here is the article. Make sure you squeeze out the excess water well, and rinse and repeat several times. I tap on a bit more of the green tea before applying my lip oil/balm. It works better than any lip scrub I’ve tried.

        • Isabella Muse

          I’m going to try it, I can use loose green tea right? I have bancha, matcha, and gyokuro, anything in particular I should be using?

          • Jes

            I don’t think the type matters, though it needs to be in a bag. so it should not be powdered. The bag does much of the exfoliating, but I think the tea adds soothing effects and increases the exfoliation. Go get some very cheap bagged green tea. I use Costco brand. Seriously. My lips feel great all day. Also, have you tried the Etude House Honey Cera Treatment Lip Oil? Ugh. Love it. I swipe it on afterwards. So great. I feel like half of the lip balm and lip butters I use just make my lips flaky later one. This one never ever does.

          • Isabella Muse

            I’m a tea snob haha so I don’t have any bagged tea! I’m going to get some at my lunch time and try it ๐Ÿ˜€ I do! I also have the Skinfood one which is lovely as well, try that if you haven’t, it’s good good too ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the tips! I’m eager to try this out now ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Isabella Muse

            I’ll let you know ๐Ÿ˜€ wish me luck! Happy Weekend xoxo!

    Thanks for the review! I was wondering about these, but couldn’t bring myself to drop the cash and give it a go.

    PS – I spent a few dollars for a couple contact lens holders a year or so back, and squeeze extra product into them from oversized samples to keep on my vanity. I really like it. It screws tight so nothing dries out & when you’re done you can hand wash or toss in the dishwasher. I’ve even switched over to used them for foundation and skincare for short weekend trips since they’re so small.

    Have a great day!!

    • Isabella Muse

      The scrub part is good, just the lip mask that sucked ๐Ÿ™ sad sigh! Great idea!!!!!!!!! Thanks Myla! I’m going to try that ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a beautiful weekend!

  • Silvia

    Thanks for the great tip on the contact lense case! I was just going to donate one from my daughter and will retrieve and keep! I also keep the teeny samples they gave me from Vichy/lifactif facial sample at Target and put Vaseline in there to quickly apply on lips before going to sleep. Or carry on a vacation (wishful thinking!). Thanks again.
