Have you ever used a lip product, whether it be a lip balm, lip gloss or lip plumper and felt your lips start to tingle? These products help to nourish your lips to result in a perfectly plump and healthily full appearance. But why is there this slight tingling sensation? Well, this is due to one of the ingredients found in lip plumpers called capsicum. You may never have heard of capsicum, or even known it was an active ingredient in your lip products, but it is vital in helping to give your lips that plump and full appearance.
Here at Dr. Nima London, we use capsicum in our REVIVE collection to help with the lip plumping process. If you’re thinking about purchasing one of our REVIVE products (both Matt and Gloss available), but are unsure as to what capsicum is and how capsicum works, then read on to learn all about it as well as how it works in our REVIVE products.
What is capsicum?
Capsicum is actually another name for a ‘chilli pepper.’ In the scientific world, it particularly refers to the type of flowering plants in the nightshade family Solanaceae. These chilli plants produce seeds that are hot to the taste and are often used in cooking as well as in lip plumping products. This is because they contain a natural chemical called capsaicin, which causes a tingling sensation when applied to the lips.
How does capsicum work in lip plumping products?
We here at Dr. Nima London use this naturally derived ingredient in our REVIVE lip product range. This is because capsicum promotes vasodilation of the blood vessels in the lips, helping them to ‘plump’ up and remain full. So how does it work? Well in response to the capsicum in the lip product, your lips have a mild reaction that naturally causes them to increase in size, volume and definition. As a bonus, they also may get a pink or red tinge (due to the increased blood flow) to your lips for a natural-looking pout. This is what also causes the tingling sensation when applied.

From the increased sun exposure during summer, the colder drying air of the winter and everything in between; our lips can be affected by the elements. That is why it is important to protect your lips all year round – ideally everyday to keep them healthy and hydrated no matter the weather. Our luxurious lip enhancers are called REVIVE for this very reason as they bring your lips back to life and keep them healthy, hydrated and plumped with every application.
The custom made applicators feature a sleek metal rollerball to apply it to your lips. Not only does this give you the perfect amount of product to use each time, it also cools and soothes your lips. This is ideal if lips are dry and dehydrated in warmer and sunnier weather or even cracked and chapped from colder and frostier weather. While the rollerball coats the lips, the product soaks into them to get to work and revive your lips and keep them healthy and beautiful. We made sure to incorporate this feature not just for ease of use, but also to ensure your lips get the perfect amount of product (in the perfect way) for best results.
The formula itself is made to bring three main benefits to your lips – health, hydration and plumping. In terms of health, this is a medical-grade formula infused with antioxidants to help protect your lips from free radicals and to help keep them healthy. Hydration is achieved through the moisturising properties and hyaluronic acid which the formula (two years in the making) contains. Lastly then, both the Matt and Gloss versions give your lips a plumped effect due to the natural ingredient of capsicum which promotes blood flow to the lips and increases their size.
When using our luxurious REVIVE lip enhancers, your results start in minutes and can last up to four hours (or more on some occasions). Click / Tap here to purchase the Matt and Gloss versions here on our website.
Do you know what your lip products contain? Here at Dr. Nima London, we pride ourselves on letting our customers know exactly what ingredients are used in our luxurious lip enhancers. They work to help keep your lips healthy, keep them hydrated and keep them naturally plumped.
In terms of lip health, our REVIVE lip enhancers are made with antioxidants to help promote and maintain lip health. Antioxidants work to protect your lips from the likes of free radicals and environmental pollution and also can slow down and prevent damage to the cells of your lips. With every application of REVIVE, you coat them in a layer of antioxidants that soak into and nourish your lips.
The name REVIVE comes from the fact that our luxurious lip enhancers bring dry and cracked lips back to life. Both the Matt and Gloss versions are infused with a magnificent level of moisturising properties to keep your lips supple, hydrated and smooth and silky to the touch. While Matt soaks into your lips for a shine-free finish, Gloss coats them in a gorgeous nude-coloured sheen that is completely non-sticky.
This is a naturally derived ingredient that promotes vasodilation of the blood vessels in the lips. This means that they cause a mild reaction in your lips that causes them to naturally plump up and increase in size, volume and definition. As a bonus effect, they also add a natural pink or red tinge to your lips for a naturally full pout. This effect takes hold a few minutes after using REVIVE (both versions) and lasts for hours at a time.
