This is the first time I am trying a lip scrub.I didn’t even know lip scrubs were available.Unlike most of them I do not have the natural pink lips,I have slight pigmentation due to years of negligence and sun damage.So I exfoliate everyday using a tooth brush,it helps.But I wanted to add a lip scrub,so I was really excited to try this product.I have been using it for 3 weeks or so,I must say its a really wonderful little product.It exfoliates the dead skin,hydrates and lightens pigmentation on lips.I can see definite improvement.Thanks to my friend Megha,I have really started to like matte lip sticks.But matte lip sticks tend to be very dry and accentuate chapped lips.So exfoliating lips prior to application of lip stick is good idea,as the lip stick glides on smoothly.I also like they are bunch of organic ingredients which not only exfoliate but hydrate lips.Key to get rid of pigmented lips is moisturisation.Each and every ingredient repairs,hydrates and lightens pigmented lips.One huge bummer is the cost! Apart of that,I can’t fault it.Overall a good product,definitely helps!
