Hi everybody! Winters are harsh on our skin and hairs, isn’t it? Just as much as we regularly use body and face scrubs, the lips too need exfoliation to keep dead and flaky skin at bay. Although it may sound a little intimidating to be scrubbing our delicate lips, it is certainly necessary. I recently came across this bunch of organic lip scrubs from Juicy Chemistry and picked up their Lemon and Spearmint lip scrub. Mojito is a fave of mine and I prefer lip products with flavors that match my taste buds. 😉

Fancy a drink? Well go ahead and dab it on your lips!
How to Use
Take a small quantity of the scrub with your ring finger, and massage it onto the lips gently for 1-2mins. Wash off and follow up with our lip butter.
Persea armeniaca (Avocado Oil), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin-E), Prunus dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), Beeswax, Butyrospermun parkii (Shea Butter), Organic White Sugar, Citrus limon (Lemon Essential Oil), Mentha piperita (Peppermint Essential Oil)
I bought this for INR 200 for 10g from Nykaa.
My Overview of the Product :
The Juicy Chemistry Lemon and Spearmint Lip Scrub comes packaged in a transparent plastic jar with a screw lid. The lid contains the brand and product names and quantity. Simple yet tasteful. The lip scrub itself is off-white in color and you get this dash of “mint and citrus”-y fragrance that’s so reminiscent of virgin mojito. 🙂 The sugar granules are quite prominent and I only need a small amount for my lips. When I exfoliate my lips with this scrub, there’s this trace of essential oils and beeswax infused in it, which moisturize the lips simultaneously with exfoliation. I did not quite expect this from a scrub and was pleasantly surprised. It is because of these nourishing ingredients that my lips do not feel dehydrated post usage of the JC lip scrub. 🙂
The lips look healthy and even a tad pinker after the first usage itself. On consistent use, I find that the lips regain that healthy natural flush and feel so soft and supple. However I do follow this up with a lip balm. I can see that this lip scrub contains all the basic ingredients right from the recipe of a virgin mojito viz. mint, lemon and sugar. 🙂 The product also has the goodness of vitamin E which works wonders for lips.
There is a list of benefits associated with their ingredients right on their site. Quite a helpful bunch of information I’d say. 🙂
Take a look :
Sweet Almond Oil
Almond oil (Prunus dulcis) is one of the most versatile carrier oils. It is light textured, and penetrates the skin easily. It is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E, our sweet almond oil is extracted from the dried kernels of the almond tree in the traditional cold pressed method. We extensively use it in our skin & hair care products, for its ability to deeply nourish the skin and condition dry, damaged hair.
Natural Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant which is absorbed easily into the skin. This vitamin is essential for healthy skin, and hair as it is needed for cell protection and maintenance. As a fat-soluble vitamin, it easily lends itself to cosmetic application.
Extracted from the avocado kernel (Persea armeniaca) it is full of essential fatty acids. The oil is absorbed easily into the skin and it is a great anti-ageing agent, making it effective against age spots. It also protects the skin from UV rays and prevents the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Beeswax (Cera alba) is the waxy substance that forms the structure of the honeycomb. It has great therapeutic properties and is effective for healing bruises, and inflammation. It is extremely beneficial to dry skin as it creates a waterproof barrier on the skin, hence locking in the moisture
Shea butter (Butyrospermun parkii) contains oleic acid which is a saturated fatty acid. It mimics the sebum which is naturally produced by our skin. Shea butter is easily absorbed into the skin and it intensely moisturises and provides relief for dry skin.
Organic White Sugar
We add this to our products to act as an exfoliant.
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon (Citrus limon) essential oil is extracted from the rind of lemons. It has an intense lemony fragrance, and acts as mood booster. It also had skin-brightening properties, which makes it ideal to prevent dark spots and other blemishes.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita) is extracted from the leaves of peppermint. It has a lovely cooling effect when applied to the skin as well as a sharp, uplifting aroma. It is an effective anti-fungal agent and also has astringent properties.
The Final Verdict :
Overall, I’m very happy with the results from the Juicy Chemistry Lemon and Spearmint Lip Scrub. It works amazingly to exfoliate as well as impart nourishment to the lips. Regular use can definitely present you with beautiful looking and great-feeling lips. I love its simple aesthetic packaging too. However being totally made from natural ingredients and being preservative-free, the JC products have a shelf life of 6 months only. That’s not a problem for me though. I’m going to check out their other products as well now. 🙂
My Rating : 5/5
