Product Review: Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub

Saturday, April 18, 2015

     Hi dearies! Blog's layout will go on a revamp next week and I want to surprise you with the layout I've chosen. This time I opt to go minimalist, clean with a bit of crisp. Anyhoo, since I'm talking about minimalist thing-y today, let me share with you a new brand of natural skin care product that was launched September last year- Nekkid Beauty Manila. This is the brainchild of Sabs Hernandez the blogger behind The Makeup Maven. NekkidSkin Bath & Skin Products is a skin care line with body scrubs made from imported natural ingredients that is guaranteed to give your skin overall wellness and good health. 

   When I received Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub and Nekkid Beauty Manila Nourishing Lip Balm, the first thing that I noticed was the packaging. So simple and clean! Then I saw the list of ingredients, very easy to understand. It's like what you see is what you get :) I'm so excited to share with you this review because as you all know I'm a sucker for anything organic and natural. Don't get me wrong if I say I'm in love with this lip scrub, there's a lot of things why you too should! Click CONTINUE READING to know more about Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub. And oh, there's a warning: You might want to eat our lip scrubs so try to restrain yourself.
Product Review: Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub
Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub

     We’re all about formulating our own lip scrubs because when it comes to our beauty products, we can control what we’re putting on our skin (be gone, gross chemicals!). Our Nekkid Lip Scrubs boils down to two components: an exfoliator and a nourishing agent, which are a killer combination for vanquishing chapped lips forever. 
Product Review: Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub
     Made with only the most nourishing ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, avocado oil and sweet almond oil, NEKKID LIPS will surely not only scrub away flakes and dead skin but will absolutely nourish and moisturize the thin skin on your lips! We used thick 25g glass containers to ensure that the beeswax and the shea butter stays in a steady temperature and maintains its creamy state!

Even though the heat is insane, the lip scrub doesn't melt. It stays the same, compact inside the jar! I thought it will turn into a syrup anytime because of the weather that we have now.
size: 25 g

price: 200 php (Around $4.50+)

place bought: Free
visit their website to order: NEKKID

instructions for use: Scoop a small amount of NEKKID LIPS using clean and dry fingers. Massage all over your lips going around on your upper and lower lips to gently scrub away dead skin cells. Allow your lips to absorb the wax, butter and oils by leaving it on for about three to five minutes. Wash away excess sugar with water or use a damp wash cloth or damp cotton pads to wipe away excess scrub.

ingredients: Beeswax, Avocado Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Organic Brown Sugar, Vitamin E, Vanilla Essential Oil

     I've been using this lip scrub almost everyday! It's soo addicting. The texture, scent, and taste are all natural. I'm always in a eureka moment every time I use this scrub. I know it's not advisable to scrub our lips everyday because the skin there is thin. What I do is scoop a little amount of scrub, as in pea-size only. Take note that the amount you see in the photo below is too much, I just scoop that amount to show the texture. 

     I scrub my lips in a circular motion with just a light pressure as I don't want my lips to get over scrubbed (because it's really addicting you want to scrub more and more) and leave the product for at least 3 minutes before washing off. The sugar melts slowly on my lips and I feel the moisturizing properties immediately.
Product Review: Nekkid Beauty Manila Lip Scrub
The texture is grainy but I find it gentle because of the melts in your lips organic brown sugar scrub
What I like:
  • Well it's all natural and organic. 
  • The price is very affordable. 
  • The packaging is simple but it's cute and in a transparent thick jar. The jar is sturdy, I accidentally dropped and no signs of breakage was seen on the jar.
  • I also like that it's a transparent jar because I can see how much content is left inside.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • The scent- DIVINE, HEAVENLY, and SOO GOOD! If you love the scent of vanilla, then you'll love this scrub to bits. 
  • The texture of the scrub is grainy because it is made of organic brown sugar. It can be harsh if you apply a heavy pressure during application but it slowly melts as you go on scrubbing that's why I still like it.
  • It made my dried and chapped lips smooth and supple.
  • Using this scrub makes lipstick application a breeze.
  • It made my dried and chapped lips smooth and supple.
  • Pregnant and breast-feeding moms who are also prone to dry, chapped, and flaky lips can now enjoy lip scrubbing with this product. (If you're pregnant and breast-feeding make sure to still ask your doctor. You may want to check first if you're not allergy to one of the ingredients. Remember that hormonal changes in the body can and may develop some allergic reactions to certain chemicals and yes even in natural ones)
What I don't like:
  • Not easily accessible. 
  • No list of ingredients and instruction on the packaging.
  • No batch, manufacturing and expiry date label on the packaging.
Will I repurchase? Yes it's in the realm of possibility. 

     I give this a 5/5 rating. I highly recommend this lip scrub! This lip scrub is like your DIY lip scrub using natural ingredients from your kitchen but WAY BETTER! The price is very affordable and it will give a very satisfied feeling after using the lip scrub. Moisturized lips- check! Zero flakes and dead skin- check! The oh so yummy experience- big CHECK!

     I can now show off my naked lips because of this lip scrub! Based on my review, I'm sure you're thinking that I'm head over heels with the scrub. Yes, yes, yes! I got Nekkid' and I love it!
