shopping guide october two lips outgrown

Eradicating ingrown hair will no longer be a painful affair thanks to TWO L(I)PS’ new Outgrown, a cream formula that’s recently launched to ensure proper post-hair removal care, so you can shave, wax or epilate in the comfort of your home.

The vulva is one of the most sensitive areas of our body – the skin around the area is prone to ingrown hair and irritation if not properly taken care of after hair removal. Instead of growing straight up and out, the hair sometimes curls inwards, getting trapped back under the surface of the skin. This results in ingrown hair symptoms, as the skin becomes red and inflamed, causing discomfort and irritation.

Using a special blend of plant-based acids, fruit and seed extracts, and antioxidants, Outgrown soothes, heals, and protects the skin while gently exfoliating dead skin cells to keep hair follicles clean, minimising irritation and itch while keeping ingrown hair and its symptoms like redness and bumps at bay.

Free from sulphates and parabens, the dermatologically and gynaecologically tested formula is safe to be used on the delicate vulva area as well as other parts of the body. Apply twice daily onto the affect areas after cleansing.

TWO L(I)PS Outgrown retails for S$75 (50ml) and is available at all Strip outlets and online at TWO L(I)PS’ e-store.
