There is so much good stuff around at the moment with a great example being the the Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops that give an instant smoothing effect. For someone whose lips never, ever look smooth, this is a revelation.
Made up of sugar and fruit extracts (enzymatic exfoliation), hibiscus flower extract (AHA also for exfoliation) and hyaluronic acid (hydration) in a water base, it has a slightly sweet taste on the lips and a very, very mildly tacky finish. It’s supposed to give an immediate effect (it does) but the best results come, apparently, after two weeks. Based on my test of the ‘immediate’ claim, yes, my lips did look smoother straight away although I have to flag up that they’re not flaky, and were softer, too. It’s interesting that Fresh claim a lip colour improvement – presumably because dry cells aren’t clouding pigment – on top of a smoothed appearance. I’m actually pretty thrilled with this stuff because it’s addressing something that I don’t particularly like about my lips which are naturally quite creased. Maybe I’ll be able to wear a matte lip without worrying! I can see this being an extra beautifying step for lip perfectionists, as well as the crinkled, like me! Fresh is notoriously expensive so I was happy to find this is £21.50 HERE at John Lewis.
