When was the last time you gave your lips a little TLC, especially in these cold frigid temperatures? That’s what we thought. Aside from slavering on some lip balm when they feel chapped, most of us seriously neglect our precious pouts when it comes to using the right beauty products.
With wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and discoloration at the top of our skincare concerns, it’s rare for people to consider how their lips are aging. Huge mistake. Despite the lack of awareness around the subject matter, your lips can give away your age just as easily as your under-eyes or forehead can. Lips get drier, thinner, and tend to lose their contour starting in your 30s.
After the age of 40, the natural collagen production in your body slows down. Because collagen is an essential protein for your hair, skin, nails, and yes, lips, you can start to see a loss of firmness, plumpness, and elasticity as you age. In your mouth, this more notable appears as thinning, usually in the upper lip. As if that weren’t annoying enough, the skin on your face also gets drier in your 40s, making lip products all the more crucial to keep the moisture levels up.
But instead of sitting back and letting the clock reek havoc on your perfect pout, you can start using a nourishing lip treatment to help counteract the signs of aging.
The glow-infused lip oils by Kiehl’s Since 1851 work really well at hydrating your lips for a youthful, luminous shine. The lightweight formula is made with ingredients like coconut oil, moringa oil, and acerola cherry extract, to replenish and nourish your lips. The product comes in four tinted shades and one untinted, natural finish.
Read some of the promising customer reviews for the Kiehl’s Love Oil For Lips Glow-Infusing Lip Treatment:
“First let me say this lip oil smells so incredible I want to eat it!! It's a fruity scent but not artificial or overpowering. It's delicious. It feels great on the lips, very moisturizing and I'm surprised by the color payoff. It's very pretty and gives me the perfect glossy just bitten glow.”
“Just got this and it’s a very good product. Super hydrating, shiny and luxurious feel. Nice touch of color but very sheer, exactly what I needed. Sorta like a hydrating, shiny lip stain in the form of an oil. Stayed on better than i thought it would. Will buy again.”
“Simple, Good, & straight to the point! Pretty much a clear lip gloss, that gives hydration and leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth. I thought the cherry flavor was going to be a bit tinted, but it’s just clear gloss. Not to thick, not to thin and runny, and it sticks/last on the lips. I put some on a few hours before bed and woke up with soft hydrated lips.”
