Here’s another winner from Bella Vita Organic that I absolutely loved using the past few weeks. For me pigmented lips were always a concerns since my childhood days , though it did not bother me then those days because I hardly used makeup and did not bother about my looks 🙂 . However since I have been addicted to makeup , I was not able to carry off my nude lipsticks and people used to keep asking me do you smoke or have you smoked and I was tired of telling them , I have dark pigmented lips .
Most Indian have dark pigmented lips either the full lips are dark or some like me have dark pigments around the corners. I usually wear dark bright color like Reds , brown , purples to conceal this , but I did miss my nude pinks , shimmers lights .
I recently came across this product from Bella Vita Organic , NicoLips – Lip Lightening Gel Scrub which surprised me.
This is honestly the first time that I am seeing a lip scrub gel for Nicotine stained lips or dark pigmented lips in the Indian market and I thought I would give this product a go and here is my review.

How the Brand Recommends Usage

How I Like to use
When I initially used this product on my lips , my lips kind of burned , I thought I was having some kind of allergic reaction to it , so I washed it off immediately an the sting went . So I then reapplied it and the burning sensation lasted for 30 secs and then product then dried off and the burning went away. It tastes absolutely yucky almost like a medicine herb. Do not Lick or eat the product.
I rubbed it and then massaged it for 30 secs in circular motions , rubbing it into the corners of my lips as those were the pigmented areas of my lips. Then I let it sit for 1 min. and wiped it off using a wet wipe and instantly my lips was pink and lighter and the dead skin was removed with soft smooth lips . I use this now at least once a week when I feel there are dead cells on my lips or the lips are peelings and this does the trick of cleaning and exfoliating my lips to give me smooth lips to apply my lipsticks.
I initially did not like the product because it caused the sting but after second use I have been using this product at least one a week and I have seen the difference on my lips because of the product.
My rating – 7.5 /10
I would recommend this to women and men who smoke and want to reduce the blackness of the lips. I would also recommend this to women who want to reduce the darker lip pigmentation.
