Two Lips FAQ

Vulva Care

"The skin around our vulva is generally similar to the skin on the rest of our body and can be complicated with common skin conditions such as dryness, eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. Just like the skin in other part of the body, the skin around our vulva becomes thinner and loses its elasticity as we age. Hair greying, loss and reduced growth are also observed. Therefore care of the vulva is equally important as our care for our skin elsewhere."

It is important to note that the vulva is not merely a woman’s vagina. In Latin, the word means “wrapper” or “covering”. The vulva is actually a sum of many parts, which includes the vaginal lips — labia majora and labia minora, clitoris, urethral opening and the vaginal opening itself. It is the general name given to the external part of the female genitalia. But what’s lesser known is that the vulva also comprises of the inner thighs and mons pubis, which is the flesh over your pubic bone.

The vagina, on the other hand, is the internal organ.
While the vagina might be self-cleaning (hence the practice of douching is a no-go), the vulva area needs to be kept clean and washed regularly. This is because bacteria and the build-up of oils and dead skin can hide in the folds of the vulva. But do not get over-zealous in cleaning as scrubbing or washing the area too vigorously can deplete the vulva of its natural oils and leave it dry and irritated.
Yes, it can. In fact, vulva irritation is actually relatively common in women of all ages, and it can be anything from itchiness, dryness or redness. Just like the skin on the other parts of your body, the vulva area can get dry, which can be caused by the wrong choice in underwear, too tight jeans, going through menopause or even a fondness for daily panty liner wearing. Further irritation can also be caused if those panty liners are scented, as the perfumes used can cause discomfort such as rashes, redness and even swelling.
Did you know that the skin at this delicate area has also been found to be thinner than the skin on the body, thus making it extra sensitive? And as the area (vulva and vagina included) is very responsive to the body’s hormonal changes, its sensitivity can be further heightened during certain times within a woman’s menstrual cycle.

Like any good facial regime, we advise to wash and dry your vulva area before application.
We recommend masking for 5 consecutive days (hence our 5-pack box) to see the best initial results. Following that, regular weekly maintenance should keep your vulva in tip-top shape!
Absolutely! This pH-balanced mask was designed to fit your vulva, which begins from your mons pubis (the pelvic bone region) down to your labia majora and inner thighs. The serum-soaked mask is sulphates, petrochemical, paraben and alcohol-free and made with organic plant extracts, so it’s safe even for the most sensitive of vulvas.
We packed in about half a bottle of serum in just one mask!
Pat in all that remaining serum goodness after masking and spread any extra serum onto the rest of your body like your legs. Nothing goes to waste!
This serum soaked mask is packed full of potent organic goodness. It is water-based, non-greasy and non-sticky. It was made for a consecutive 5-day application followed by weekly application for the best results. (Short answer: of course not!)
Blackout is not vegan, but it was never tested on animals. It was, however, tested by humans on humans, humanely!
Blackout is 100% free of sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals and alcohol, and is packed with organic flower extracts to detox, soothe, hydrate and brighten skin with no irritation.
Blackout is packed with white liquorice, centella asiatica, cornflower, elderberry and Indian cress. Here’s what they can do for you:
• Organic white liquorice and centella asiatica brightens and evens out skin tone • Organic elderberry, Indian cress, ylang ylang and chamomile calms and soothes

Yes they are! Our ingredients are certified organic by these institutions:
- Taiwan SGS Certification https://www.sgs.com/
- ECOCERT EU French Organic Certification http://www.ecocert.com
- UK Soil Association Organic Certification https://www.soilassociation.org
Blackout was made for immediate use after waxing, IPL and laser treatments and work well even for the most sensitive skin. All our key ingredients were selected for their calming, soothing and antioxidant properties. On the off-chance that you are allergic to Blackout, stop using it immediately and rinse off any product from your skin. Visit a doctor if the condition persists. We recommend that you read through the ingredient list and check with your doctor if you have any concerns.
Blackout was specially formulated with ingredients that were selected for their safe and calming properties, which makes it great for vulva care. It was tested by a panel of 30 trial participants who did not face any adverse reactions.
It’s not a must, but if you like an extra soothing kick, feel free to store Blackout in the fridge! The added cooling boost is especially great as a post-wax, IPL, laser or sun tan treat!
We don’t see why you can’t! After all, Blackout was created for skin and there’s no reason why we can’t share the goodness with the rest of our bodies.
Why not? Men technically have the same mons pubis and inner thigh area, to which the design of the Blackout mask fits perfectly. Besides, who wouldn’t want a 15-minute relaxing break?
Blackout contains highly potent organic essential oils, which are best avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, you may use Blackout three months after childbirth, if you are not breastfeeding.
There’s no vulva discrimination with Blackout — our mask is suitable for all manners of vulva! Whether you’re hairless or coiffed, the serum is able to penetrate into the skin and deliver its best effects.
You most definitely can since Blackout’s power-packed ingredients help soothe and hydrate the skin, while reducing inflammation.
While it is safe for using before a swim or tan, we highly recommend using it after instead to soothe and hydrate the skin, as sun tanning as well as salt and chlorine water dries the skin.
Absolutely! Blackout is made for the vulva, so it does not come into contact with your vagina. However, because it does come into contact with your vaginal opening, wash and dry your vulva after wearing your tampon and before wearing Blackout.
Even though Blackout is a vulva mask that does not come into contact with your vagina, it does come into contact with your vaginal opening, so it’s best to avoid using Blackout until you recover from the infection.
Not at all! Blackout has been specially created to be used on the vulva. It is pH-balanced to be safe for use.
While the mask is made with organic ingredients and is extremely safe even for the most sensitive of skin, we do not recommend using the mask if you have a skin infection on your vulva.
Because Blackout is made with organic ingredients and is extremely safe on the skin, it is safe for use directly before oral sex. Just remember to pat in the remaining serum for absorption into the skin after your masking ritual.
Unfortunately not. We do not recommend using Blackout on open wounds.
Sure, it’s not a miracle product that’ll reverse the lack of estrogen or trigger estrogen production, but we can assure that it’ll restore, hydrate and plump your skin texture superficially, making vaginal dryness a thing of the past.
