Our Review On Bella Vita Organic’s NICO LIPS’ Lip Lightening Scrub And Balm
Touch And Feel:
When you unscrew the lid, a dollop of red hued glutinous mixture surprises you with its bright colour and a pleasing strawberry aroma.
This luscious blend of walnut grit, oats, vegan butters, oils, beetroot extract and vitamin E looks rich enough to deeply hydrate overly dry lips. The colour and texture of the scrub tempts you to try it the very first moment you open the jar.
A pea sized amount of this scrub is enough to hydrate and exfoliate your lips. Peppermint in this scrub instantly calms irritated lips and leaves a cooling sensation.
When you’re done with the scrubbing part, allow the balm to stay on your lips at least for five minutes to let the oils and butters seep in to replenish, hydrate and seal-in the moisture. Wipe the scrub with a wet tissue and follow up with a nourishing lip balm. What’s left is a natural rosy tint on your lips.
Our study of the ingredients and their impact:
Walnut grounds contained in the scrub grant a slightly abrasive texture to this lip scrub, perfect to handle sensitive skin on lips. When rubbed over the lips, the tiny particles work to smoothen roughness.
Oats powder in the scrub contribute to a creamy and grainy texture that works to soften lips and fight inflammation on sensitive lips.
Shea, cocoa, kokum and mango butters offer intense hydration to replenish moisture lost during scrubbing. These butters also reduce inflammation and seal in moisture with their rich buttery texture.
The addition of almond, carrot seed, wheatgerm, olive and coconut oils makes this scrub easier to glide over the entire surface of the lips. These oils reach the inner layers of skin to repair and nourish damaged tissues. Vitamin E boosts moisture and plumpness on lips to leave them supple and renewed.
Beetroot extract rejuvenates and uplifts the texture of lips with a pinkish stain. To amplify it’s retention ability, organic wax is used as an ingredient which means this lip scrub is an all natural fix to remedy dry and cracked lips. Organic wax is considered safer for use in lip balms compared to petroleum based waxes.
As claimed by the product, it’s difficult to reap lip lightening benefits of this scrub in four weeks, since you can only use it once or twice a week to prevent any kind of irritation that might arise due to overscrubbing.
Though the results begin to show on the third week, the actual benefits can only be ascertained after long term use of this product.
Ideally, it’s designed for people who suffer from darkened lips due to unhealthy habits such as smoking, incessant intake of alcohol, using poor quality make-up or synthetic skincare products. And no doubt, it’s a brilliant product with proven ability to heal dry, cracked lips and lighten darkness to some extent.
Like most other Bella Vita products, Nico Lips’ is an Ayurvedic Lip scrub formulated with natural and organic ingredients. It’s free from artificial additives or preservatives namely parabens, pthalates and mineral oil you find in most natural skin care products.
Skin Type and Gender:
Nico Lips works for both men and women with darkened and parched lips regardless of their skin type.
Those with normal lips can use this scrub to reduce lip pigmentation.
