My Take on Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3-Step Kit

I have pigmented lips which are dry most of the times (wait.. Is there a single skin related problem which I don’t have?).  I usually don’t use lip treatment products (except lip balms) because we don’t have much variety of them here in India. Most of them are way too expensive! So I was very excited when skin18 sent me this Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3-Step Kit, I waited for the right opportunity to use it. I used it a day before a wedding  when my lips were looking dull. P.S – I didn’t click any before/after pictures so you will have to trust my words!

1st Step

The 1st sachet contains an exfoliating pad. It is basically a cotton sheet shaped like a lip. When I opened the sachet I noticed that it had many small granules. I actually cheated in this step and gave the exfoliating pad to my mom instead of using it on myself. She has pigmented lips too, and they are actually worse than mine 🙁 so I knew that if it can work for her then it will work for anyone. I used the small granules which were left in the sachet to exfoliate my lips. They were enough to remove the dead skin cells off my lips. I could feel the changes in the first step itself. Meanwhile, my mom was done using the exfoliating pad and we were surprised to see that her lip pigmentation had reduced a lot! She was super pleased with the results!

2nd step

2nd sachet contains a hydro-gel mask. Mine was broken from one side, but it was still usable. This mask brings softness and plumpness to the lips. I kept it on for about 20 minutes (the packaging recommends keeping it for at least 15 minutes). Sadly I didn’t notice any plumpness after using this mask, but it did make my lips appear soft and hydrated.

3rd step

The 3rd sachet contains “honey treatment” which is actually just a lip balm. It has very rich texture and it (obviously) smells like honey. ? I have never ever used such nourishing lip balm before, it works like a charm on chapped lips! I wonder if holika holika sells this lip balm individually.. By the way, it comes with a great quantity so you can actually use it for 3-4 times! This was my most favourite step out of all three of them. ?

What I like about Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3-Step Kit :-

• Has cute and unique packaging!

• All three steps are fun to use.

• 1st step works great on pigmented lips and 2nd one on chapped lips.

What I didn’t like about Holika Holika Golden Monkey Glamour Lip 3-Step Kit :-

• It doesn’t help to plump up the lips so don’t expect that you will get the (in)famous Kylie Jenner lips after using this kit. It makes the lips appear healthy and nice though!

  • 1st step
  • 2nd step
  • 3rd step

Final Words

I liked the concept of this 3 step lip kit because it is an all in one solution for dry and pigmented lips. The 2nd step is quite disappointing, but rest two are great. Overall a good product.

What do you think about this 3 step lip kit? Have you tried such product before? Let me know in the comments section below! Have a happy week ahead lovelies! ❤


  1. I never heard of this brad before and I am delighted to get to know it! I have dry lips as well, and then i would love to try this product – scrubbing, using the mask and the balm. I didn’t know that in India there aren’t many balms. So this product is very good!

    • Holika Holika is really popular in Korea. 🙂 you should try this kit! Btw, we get many types of lip balms here in India but not lip scrubs 😀

  2. This is really a very unique product. One packet which contains solution to most common problems 😀

    Great post and informative review !

  3. This product is completely new to me, I have never used anything like this, but Koreans usually make unique product like these, will try it out

  4. Have heard of this brand and always wanted to use this, but getting it is always a big issue..Nice detailed review..
