Dry, chapped lips is a common problem for many people. It gets even worse during winters. The only remedy people think to get rid of this problem is applying lip balm. I have seen some going overboard with their lip balms. Remember applying lip balm is not enough, and using a lip scrub is a must. Lip exfoliation makes your lips moister and retains its moisture longer, helping prevent cracked lips. Removing dead surface of your lips brings out new fresh layers, making lips soft, smooth, and yes, kissable 😉 Unlike body scrubs, lip scrubs need to be safer. Thus, I chose “Choco Mint Lip Scrub” from Juicy Chemistry as it is 100% natural, chemical free, and paraben free.

My Experience with Juicy Chemistry Choco Mint Lip Scrub
Packaging: This lip scrub comes in a transparent plastic tub packaging. There is a protective inner lid that seals the product from hitting the cap. All product details are printed at the bottom of the tub. It is not very travel friendly as there is leakage of oils in the product.
Texture: This lip scrub has a granular texture. It comes in chocolate brown color. It definitely smells full of mint and chocolate. It has a paste-like consistency with visible organic sugar crystals. It spreads easily on the lips. Once rubbed on the lips, sugar melts down, and the scrub turns to a balmy consistency.
Performance: This lip scrub is a mix of all good ingredients such as beeswax, natural vitamin E, essential oils, shea butter, cocoa powder, and organic white sugar. However, the main components are choco and mint. Choco powder has powerful antioxidant properties and helps to heal damaged skin, whereas peppermint essential oil has astringent properties and is an effective anti-fungal agent. A tiny bit of this scrub goes a long way. I gently massage this scrub on my wet lips to remove dead skin. It makes my lips clean, soft, and smooth. I could feel the infusion of essential oils making my lips hydrated and plump. The granules are not at all harsh on the lips. I advise you to use this scrub during shower as the product spreads all around your lip area and make it oily. Once applied, it gives a sweet sugar and tingling sensation. It does treat the lips for a conditioned and revitalized feel. It only takes a few minutes to scrub your lips, so doing it once, or even twice, a week is very realistic. Using this lip scrub regularly will make you forget chapped lips. It is a Holy Grail product for matte lipstick lovers like me. Moreover, on good scrubbed lips, lip cosmetics will adhere longer. This scrub also removes every trace of lipstick, especially long-wear ones, left behind. Overall, its 100% natural, chemical-free, and paraben-free formula makes this lip scrub one of the best in Indian beauty market.
