Plump Sensitive Lips

Despite being somewhat lackluster in the lip volume department, I'm typically adverse to lip plumpers because of the tingling (read: burning) sensation they can sometimes cause. However, after Institut DERMed's Hydra-Lip Lift came across my desk, I was pleasantly surprised by its dual-and non-painful-effect.

Hydra-Lip Lift has a different texture than traditional lip plumpers-it's creamy and incredibly soothing-so much so that I can apply it before bedtime as a comforting lip treatment. This plumper contains a tri-peptide and palmitoyl complex designed to stimulate collagen production in lips, but its moisturizing secret lies in the combination of hydrating shea butter and oligopeptide, a natural humectant that helps to retain moisture.

If you're anything like me, you'll be using it mornings, evenings and during each “lip balm break” in between.
