Did you know that your skin does not age uniformly? This, I confess, was news to me. But in reading about this new lip booster, I learned that wrinkles can appear on and around the lips at a different and often faster rate than anywhere else on the face. The delicate skin surrounding the mouth needs specific attention to ensure it does not lose its elasticity prematurely, but, according to the folks at Babor, “not just any formula can accomplish this.” That’s where the Doctor Babor Derma Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster for Lips ($59.00) fits in. To address the unique needs of this vulnerable area, the research team at Babor developed a product designed to “redefine contours while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.”
This treatment contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, which is supposed to create an “instantly visible smoothing effect on the outside of the lips.” Simultaneously, “the multi-vector biopeptide activates the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid and plumps up the lips from the inside.” As a result, the contour is redefined and the lips are left feeling soft and supple.
Well, let me at it! I used the product twice a day for about two weeks. Right off the bat, I loved the application process: three rollers made of nickel-free stainless steel designed to “stimulate microcirculation upon application.” Woo hoo! But seriously, it felt great going on. And the formula itself has a wonderfully soothing, emollient feel; unlike some of the plumping gels I have tried, this one does not make your lips feel tingly at all. Think more along the lines of a soothing cup of herbal tea for lips, not a jolt of high-octane coffee.
As the pictures suggest, there was a definite improvement in the skin tone and quality of my lips when using the product. But to be honest, the effect was apparent only when wearing the booster; I did not notice any significant difference when I was not wearing it. The consistency of the booster is too slippery to apply lipstick over; if you wear it, you wear it alone. Still, I loved all the TLC it gave my lips and would continue using it on a regular basis.
Doctor Babor Derma Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster for Lips is free of parabens, mineral oil, fragrance and artificial colorants and is therefore compatible with all skin types.
