Hourglass, one of my favorite beauty lines that is health conscious and all-around great product has now come out with a treatment for the lips called No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil. Around a year ago they came out with No. 28 Primer Serum and this is the follow-up answer for the lips.
This lip treatment is not only good for the lips, it feels like nothing for the lips I’ve ever tried before. It’s not lotiony feeling, it’s not an exfoliant, nor is it balm or gloss. It’s an oil that actually feels cushiony on the lips and it doesn’t absorb in right away so it doesn’t disappear making you wonder what happened to your lip treatment. It stays on the lips for a long, long time giving them that soft, yet cushioned, slick feeling without being goopy or messy. It’s quite difficult to explain – the lips just feel soft and well treated. Press down on the “lever” if you will and on the angled applicator top which is made from 24KT, anti-bacterial, gold-plate tip, a bead of thick oil comes out and the applicator works great for smoothing it over the lips.
Like No. 28 Primer Serum, this product has 14 essential oils: Bois De Rose, Lavender, Geranium, Petitgrain, Lemon, Rosemary, Vanilla, Clove, Amyris, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Eucalyptus, Cedar and Rose Geranium; 10 lipid-rich plant oils, including Hazelnut, Kukui Nut, Rose Hip, Borage, Olive, Green Tea, Cherry Pit, Sweet Almond, Jojoba, and Evening Primrose; and is fortified with 4 Vitamins, A, B5, C and E. The 28 ingredients create a protective barrier for lips.
There are 3 powerful actives:
Saliporine 8, an extract that is derived from a hardy succulent, was shown to reinforce the natural moisturizing factor of the skin. Moisture levels in the skin increase by 6000% after applying it twice a day for 28 days, according to the company.
Volulip™, a blend of a plant extract and the natural peptide Pal-KMO2K, helps remedy internal and external lip texture. In clinical testing, Volulip™improved lip shape, softness, volume, and hydration for 69% of volunteers.
K3 Viamerine has been shown to hydrate all three epidermal layers and reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles.
No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic dyes and petroleum derivatives.
