Hello lovely people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
When it comes to skincare, we all know how important it is to properly exfoliate our skin… Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and also improves blood circulation, resulting in a healthy and glowing skin! But while we religiously exfoliate our body and facial skin, we usually forget that our lips need some scrubbing too…
The skin on our lips is quite thin when compared to that on other body parts and is also devoid of hair and sebaceous (oil) glands… Due to these reasons, the lips tend to get dry and chapped much faster and keeping them well nourished and exfoliating them at regular intervals become essential! 🙂
I have been using the grapefruit scrub by Yami Herbals to exfoliate my lips for quite a few months now. Today, I am going to review the same for you all… Read on! ❤
YAMI HERBALS GRAPEFRUIT LIP SCRUB
INGREDIENTS: Organic sugar, Organic salt, Sweet almond oil, Grapefruit essential oil.
COST: Rs. 110
SHELF LIFE: 9 months from the date of manufacture.
MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Yami Herbals grapefruit lip scrub comes in a tiny, transparent plastic tub packaging with a black coloured screw-on lid on the top. The tub is very sturdy and the lid sits perfectly on the mouth of the tub. This prevents any sort of leakage/spillage of the product due to pressure or movement, making the packaging quite travel-friendly!
The lid contains a label with the logo of the brand and the name of the product printed over it… Additional details like the list of ingredients and manufacturing date are not present on the packaging and though one can always contact the brand to enquire about the same (and I can guarantee that they always send freshly made units), I feel that the presence of such details on a product is quite important!
The lip scrub has a fine yet not so fine granular texture which, in my opinion, is perfect for scrubbing the lips and for keeping a grip on the granules while doing the same! This scrub has no added colours and gets its translucent, off white hue from the presence of salt and sugar crystals… It has a natural, citrusy fragrance of grapefruit oil which is quite mild and wouldn’t bother the sensitive noses…
I have a really irritating habit of chewing my lips unconsciously, which usually leaves them quite dry and flaky. And so, using a lip scrub becomes a necessity for me, especially before using liquid lipsticks! I have noticed that lip scrubs don’t work well when applied directly onto dry lips and so, I always use a nourishing lip balm a couple of hours before scrubbing my lips… This plumps up the dead skin cells and they easily leave the lips when scrubbed!
With this grapefruit lip scrub, I take a pinch of it on my palm and using a finger, I slowly exfoliate my ‘pre-moisturised’ lips for about 5 minutes or so, after which I wash off the granules from my face with plain water and finish off with a layer of lip balm!
This lip scrub removes every bit of the visible dead skin cells from the surface of the lips and leaves the lips soft and smooth. Additionally, the essential oil and sweet almond oil present in the scrub also condition and nourish the lips… My lipsticks glide like butter on my lips, after using this scrub! ❤❤❤
The lip scrubs by Yami Herbals do not contain any added chemicals or preservatives and hence, they are totally safe to use… 😀
