THE KISSABLE EDITION: Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment

Dermalogica is a brand that has been on my radar since I was still living in Malaysia. The products were crazy expensive in Malaysia but then again, anything beauty related is very expensive in Malaysia. I think we suffer the same fate as the Aussies, beauty product prices are through the roof because of taxes.

Now I am in no way saying that Dermalogica is cheap here in Canada, the price range is still up there but at least I finally managed to try a few products from the brand. The first product that I tried was the cult favourite, Pre-Cleanse after Lily (say hello here) mentioned how much she likes it. 

I also have Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant as a staple in my routine which I love using 3 times a week. It's super gentle but with massive results on my skin and I see myself using it until the day Dermologica discontinues it. The latest product added into routine is the new Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment*.

I was a heavy smoker for 14 years, smoking up to one and half packs a day before finally going cold turkey in 2011, other than my lungs, my lips suffered a heck of a lot. What's more alarming is the past few months I noticed that I couldn't wear a lipstick without a lip liner anymore, not even a lip brush is giving me a precise line like it used to because my lips are...aging. The lines around my lips are getting more noticeable, some are deeper than others so when Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment* arrived on my doorstep, I sang hallelujah.

Since our skin repairs itself during sleep, Dermalogica specifically created Nightly Lip Treatment* to help firm, hydrate, and restore skin around the mouth during the evening. Some of the key ingredients include:

Indian Gentian Extract helps reduce skin fragility and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the lips.
Sesame Seed Extract helps smooth and decrease the appearance of nasolabial fold lines, wrinkles, and roughness.
Shea Butter increases hydration and improves skin elasticity while restoring barrier function against visible signs of aging.
Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract and Glycerin complex helps enhance skin hydration and smooth lips.

This lip treatment comes in a 10mL airless pump and all I have to do is press the metal top to disperse product. My preferred method is pumping a tiny amount (trust me you don't need much, a little goes a very longggg way), pat onto my lips with fingers and finally massage the remaindering with the cool metal top. 

The texture is a very light lotion but very moisturizing as my lips are so plump and hydrated the very next morning and I never felt the need for a lip balm until noon. I do suggest applying this on clean lips and avoid lip balm when using this product for maximum results.

It does have a very faint minty scent to it but it's barely detectable and the scent doesn't translate into  a flavour. I didn't detect any taste to this lip treatment which I personally think is great because not everyone is a fan of mint.

Now to the most important question, does this lip treatment work? I personally find that it works as my lips appeared to be so much softer and fuller after a mere 3 weeks!

Honestly the only downside that I can think of is the price; C$68.00 for 10mL. That's C$6.80/mL. It's freaking pricey, make that bloody pricey but at the end of the day, it works and you know you are guaranteed quality with Dermalogica

To whom do I recommend this? Anyone who is in their mid 30s and above, anyone who is starting to see signs of aging around the lips. Again, it's an investment but it's a good and worthwhile one.

*Product marked with * was received for free but my thoughts and opinions are 100% unbiased, honest and my own. There is no place for any sort of BS here.
