Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well! Yay for it finally being Friday and for the weekend just being around the corner. This is my last full weekend out here in Spain so we are planning on doing as much as we can. I have a busy August and September this year...I head home next week and then I go to Reading Festival, then to Ibiza and back out here to Spain after my surgery (whilst working full time in between)! I thought considering I have had a crazy year with University I would treat myself and go a little OTT, even though I will be away a lot this year...I most definitely will still be blogging and bringing you lots of new content :)
I was first introduced to Skin Chemists back in January where I had the opportunity to try out and review the famous Been Venom Facial Oil. I was so impressed with the facial oil I couldn't say no to trying out other products throughout the Skin Chemists line. If you fancy taking a peek at the Bee Venom Facial Oil review you can do so by clicking here. The facial oil is a revolutionary product, it contains real Bee Venom as the active ingredients, to produce a fantastic, noticeable, anti-wrinkle effect. It is the first of it's kind, fusing the efficacy and potency of the proven results of Bee Venom with the luxury and comfort of an oil, it provides skin-tightening, toning and brightening benefits. Something I have always read and have learnt from older generations is that you can never start too early to banish those pesky wrinkles we are all bound to have one day…sobs!
Today we are talking about lips and getting that plump Kylie Jenner look without the commitment of actual lip fillers. Fortunately I was blessed with quite full lips, however, it doesn't hurt to add a little more plumpness if you want to haha. Recently Skin Chemists introduced me to their Lip Plump and I thought I would share my thoughts with you all.
There are 1000's of lip glosses on the market, however, how many of them actually contain active ingredients and the benefits of a skincare regime? With the Skin Chemists Lip Plump you can achieve a killer pout whilst still ensuring maximum plumpness. When first applying the Lip Plump I noticed a minty esk scent to the formulation and I have always been told that mint is a natural lip plumper...that is why it is incorporated in so many lip product formulations. I am not 100% sure if it is true or it is my brain telling me it is actually working when it's not...either way I quite like the minty tang and I have read it has plumping properties. At the first instance I noticed a slight tingling to my lips, however, I did not notice an instant change. I find after around 30 minutes you will notices your lips are more plump and fuller, however, it is more of a natural boost to your lips which I prefer rather than a shocking change. There is Hyaluronic Acid in the formula which boosts natural levels within the skin, and it is used within the body to store water and influence soft tissue functions. There is also Benzyl Nicotinate and Sodium Hyaluronate which aid in the ful plumping effect.
According to Skin Chemist, the Lip Plump combines the benefits of fuller lips with the added extra of it being part of your skincare routine. They mention how the lip plump provides you with more volume, the reduction of fine lines whilst enhancing your lip contours and overall protecting your lips. Like everything I think this product will work differently on everyone, however, one think I definitely know is it would make a gorgeous lipgloss. However, for the £79.95 price tag you would want the product to do exactly what it says it is going to do and give you fuller lips. I prefer to apply the lip plump onto dry lips around 30 minutes before applying any other lip products. After waiting for the product to work it's magic I like to apply my lip product of choice and top it off with the lip plump again so it can work throughout the day or evening also.
Overall, I quite like this product and how it enhances my natural lips. It is not something I would use everyday but definitely on nights out or for special events. I love how the packaging looks very sleek and luxurious. The silver packaging reflects well with all of the other products throughout the Skin Chemists line. I know lip plumping products are not for everyone but I thought I would share my thoughts with you all. I hope you all enjoyed this post, I would love to know your thoughts the the Skin Chemists and the Lip Plump.
