Hi Beautiful! It’s beauty-time again where I will share the newest and latest beauty products in the market. Today, we will be zeroing on one body part – the lips. That’s the most delicate part of the face besides the skin around our eye area. Having problems with dry,cracked and chapped lips? It’s time to do something about it.
To remedy the problem, you got to drink lots of water (1.5- 2 litres per day! ) and slapped on some lip balm to moisturise the lips. Recently, Mentholatum (LipIce) has launched a new formulation of lip products – the lip gel! Well, it might not come as a surprise to most of you since there are already gel-based lip products in the market like lip glosses. However, this new series of medicated lip gels which comes in 3 different types mainly focuses on reviving your lip to it’s tip-top condition and maintaining look of healthy-looking lucious lips. The gel formulation would effectively penetrates crevices of the lips so all you have to do is just to smear the gel evenly all over the lips and smuck your lips before you leave the house.
It helps to improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines while keeping lips moist and soft.
CoQ10 : Maintains healthy and youthful-looking lips
Ceramide : Locks in and provides long lasting moisturizing to lips. Effective protection against chapped and sensitive lips
Maxi-Lip : Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and keeps lips supple.
What I got to say?
Look, I know that CoQ10 ( or Vitamin Q) is a popular anti-aging ingredient for our skin but I’m just not too sure whether it will work on our lips. Even if it does, my question is, how many women are facing a problem in aging lips? With that said, I don’t really get the whole idea of the 3 different type of lip gel using different ingredients because in nature, they generally do a good job of moisturizing the lips to prevent dry and chapped lips!
Mentholatum Hyaluronic Acid Lip Gel ( intensive moisturization for your lips)
It effectively prevents dry, flaky, chapped lips while providing long-lasting moisturization to lips.
Hyaluronic acid : Locks in moisture to provide long lasting, intensive moisturisation to lips
Panthenol (Vitamin B5) : Effectively moisturises and prevents chapped, dry lips
Collagen : improves lip texture and elasticity
What’s my take on this?
I personally prefer this lip gel out of the 3 different types because first of all, the product gets absorbed readily into the lip’s epidermis and secondly, the moisturizing effect lasted much longer. This could be explained by the property of hyaluronic acid which grabs moisture from the surroundings and clings to it tightly.
