Winter brings me two unwanted problems – dry hands that need constant moisture and dry lips that need extra moisture. I’m working on both of these problems often but they can be hard to solve. I needed help and Michael Todd came to my rescue by sending their INTENSIVE CREAM LIP TREATMENT my way. This wonderful cream is not a lip balm, it’s a treatment which is why it’s so effective.
I use intensive cream lip treatment when I’m home. It lives in my house so that I won’t go through it too quickly. As soon as my teeth are brushed and my vitamins taken, on goes this lip treatment. At night before I get in bed, on goes this lip treatment. I have lip balms all over my house and use those too but those aren’t what I attribute my better feeling and looking lips to.
Pull off the lavender top and you’ll find this slanted tip that helps smooth the cream on. It’s cooling on my lips and the cream glides on. It’s good to then massage it in circular motions. Make this baby work for you! There’s a tiny bit of tingle at first but it’s gone within a minute. It’s nothing that hurts but I do notice it at first.
Let’s talk about what makes this so successful. Three ingredients have the most effect on this treatment. 1. Soluble Collagen 2. Actimp™ 3. Hyaluronic Acid.
Infused Collagen helps plump and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and works from the inside out.
Actimp™ is the one you haven’t heard about. It’s a peptide made from Sweet white Lupine Flower which not only has skincare benefits but also helps collagen do its job. Extracted peptides from the Lupine flower are clinically validated to strengthen the dermal-epidermal junction restoring elasticity & firmness while healing & repairing through an increase in collagen & elastin production and a decrease in damaging enzymes.
Hyluronic Acid is my favorite ingredient and I’m always happy to find it in my skincare. It attracts water to the skin’s surface and delivers nourishing hydration to skin’s outer layers.
The more moisture the better.
While this gem is on the expensive side ($48) it’s worth it to keep your lips in kissing condition. Pampering your lips with something other than a beautiful lipstick is worth a little indulgence. Your lips will thank you and so will your kissing partner. — Marcia
