My name is Allison, and I’m a lip balm addict. I can’t concentrate on anything if my lips feel dry or chapped. And no matter how great my lipstick or gloss is, I know it will look horrible if my lips are peeling. I try to keep my lips conditioned at all times, and over the years, I’ve managed to get them to a good place, but I had the feeling I needed one more product to push me into lip nirvana.
I think I’ve found that product in the ANTI-AGE Lip Renewing Serum from Rodan + Fields Dermatologists. It’s not a lip balm, it’s a lip treatment. It comes in little silver capsules, and I was able to get up to six uses out of each capsule. The directions say to apply a whole capsule each time, but I didn’t feel that I needed that much product. Maybe it’s because I have tiny lips, I don’t know. But I found that the small amounts I was using did the job, and I don’t believe in using more product than you need.
I applied the lip serum every night, and after day two, my lips felt considerably softer and fuller. Two days! My lips are thin, especially the top one, and I found that this product plumped them up considerably. There was no stinging or tingling with this serum (and if you’ve tried other lip plumpers before, you are probably familiar with that particular unpleasantness.) And unlike some serums, this one is not sticky. It absorbs fairly quickly, and there is no gross taste or scent.
The Lip Renewing Serum claims to smooth lip wrinkles and lines, but since I don’t have those, I can’t comment on that. I will, however, tell you that an esthetician friend of mine who has for years been on a quest for a product to combat lip wrinkles and lines loves this lip serum. She actually said it changed her life!
The container of capsules sells for $53, and that includes 60 capsules. I could get several months’ use out of one container, but even if you do find you need to use a whole capsule each time, I don’t think $53 for two months worth of lip serum is expensive. Serums are made to target certain issues, so they contain concentrated amounts of active ingredients that are able to penetrate the skin in a way that more topical products can not. Think of them as the shot of espresso of the beauty world. For that reason, I’d doubt the effectiveness of a very inexpensiveness serum. I’ve yet to find any in that category that actually work.
If your goal is softer, fuller, smoother lips, this is truly a good product to try. Check out the website below to order.
