I love a good lip balm, let’s be honest, who doesn’t. They are a staple of most people’s beauty regimes and during winter months, I consider them to be a necessity!
Sometimes however, just a regular run of the mill balm isn’t quite enough to soothe and protect your lips and you need something with a little more pizzazz, a lip treatment for example.
Alpha-H’s Absolute Lip Perfector is a multi tasking lip treatment which has been designed to nourish, protect and lock in moisture for softer, fuller lips.
This little tube of lip loving joy is a combined serum and balm which is infused with peppermint and wild mint to offer a fresh and retro scent.
It contains Zinc Oxide to reduce irritation and inflammation on dry chapped lips and also provides a broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection which is so important.
Honeycomb extract nourishes and conditions and a blend of super micronized hyaluronic acid and collagen boosting Tripeptide-1 plumps, redefines and minimises fine vertical lines to reduce the signs of ageing and keeps the lip contour more firm and supple.
Also, the micronied moisture particles are able to penetrate the delicate lip tissue area where they swell to increase lip volume as well as aiding moisture retention.
Told you it was so much more than just a lip balm!
On first inspection it doesn’t look like anything special. It is a fairly light balm that is absorbed quickly into your lips leaving a soft sheen and a slightly tingly peppermint sensation.
It is non greasy and sits on your lips for some time meaning you don’t need to continually reapply it which is great.
Lips instantly begin to feel softer and more moisturised and unlike some other balms which just sit on top like a film, you really can feel that this balm penetrating the lip area and repairing it.
After 3 days of using this exclusively I’m pleased to say that my lips feel beautifully soft and plump and any dry chapped areas that once were are no longer there.
In terms of noticing its plumping qualities, I can’t say I noticed a huge difference, neither with regards to fine lines around my lip but perhaps I need to give it a bit more time.
That said, for those of you hunting for the perfect lip balm that will actually help your super sore, dry chapped lips and actually works, you should really try this.
I know it’s not cheap at £19.99 for 10ml BUT a little goes a long way and just have a re-read of all the lip loving ingredients this lip perfector contains. Can your regular balm boast the same?
Didn’t think so.
