These lips of mine have had a rough few months. Between the normal harshness of winter and the dry air in Colorado, I can now admit that I am a chapstick addict. Soon after moving to CO last fall, the hubby and I added a chapstick to every room so that we were never too far away from relief! However, I was still noticing that my lips looked dry and cracked whenever I smoothed on my lipstick. I tried homemade lip scrubs, which only lasted for a short period of time.
One day I stumbled onto a new product by Murad, called Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips. The product claims to “revitalize” lips while also using collagen to give a “plumper, more youthful appearance.” And who wouldn’t want a more luscious pout? I know I would! I’m a huge skeptic when it comes to these products that seem to just be marketing a result that many women desire, but the reviews I read were overwhelmingly positive. And my friends, I am happy to report that it works!
Even with my skeptical eye, I can notice a visible difference in the plumpness and smoothness of my lips! The product doesn’t feel like anything else I’ve used on my lips — it has a silky consistency and is quickly absorbed into the lips, so you’re not left with oil or clumpy residue. This makes it a great base under lipsticks and glosses. I have been using it a couple of times during the day, before bed, and definitely before any lipstick application. I’ve said goodbye to that tight, restricted feeling that your lips have when they’re chapped, and have been so surprisingly thrilled with the result that this product gives me!
I would recommend this product to anyone struggling with chapped, rough lips, or noticing those vertical lines on the lips that are sure to ruin your new lipstick look. Also, for anyone who wants to see that extra plump in your pout, this is one of the products that actually works! You can read about the ingredients and brief science behind it on Murad’s website, but for $24 it’s a GREAT value!
I’m interested in looking further into Murad’s product line after this success. Please leave a comment if you’re a fan of any of their other products that you think I should try!
