Winter’s chill is still wreaking havoc on my lips. Although I feel spring’s warmer winds blowing in now and again, this change in weather is really doing a number on my dry lips. I am obsessed with keeping my lips moisturized, and never go anywhere (or to bed) without smearing on a layer of lip balm.
I was sent NEOVA skincare’s Cu3 Intensive Lip Repair ($22.00), which is meant to be a soothing lip treatment with an array of beneficial ingredients including:
Copper Peptide Complex [CpC] — Also known as Bis (Tripeptide-1) Copper Acetate, a delivery system that uses the body’s natural protective carrier to deliver proprietary copper peptides, an essential micronutrient for skin health, for maximum restorative benefit
Petrolatum — Forms an occlusive film on the skin’s surface, preventing moisture loss due to evaporation and protects against irritation
Mineral Oil — A non-comedogenic, occlusive substance that helps improve the epidermal barrier function
Glycerin — A humectant that attracts essential moisture to the skin
I love lip balms with petrolatum in its ingredients list, so I knew this lip treatment was going to work for me. I applied it upon waking up and throughout the day. My lips were immediately moisturized with a smooth, balm-like coating left on my lips. The treatment itself isn’t too sticky or thick — just a nice, comfortable layer remains, letting you know that your lips will soon be super-soft.
Even though I am only twenty-four, I was excited to learn that the copper peptides in this product will help banish fine lines around the lips — I am trying to curtail any avoidable signs of aging!
The Intensive Lip Repair also deeply nourishes to replenish moisture loss; comforts and soothes; leaves lips feeling and looking younger and provides that essential copper micronutrition. It is recommended for all skin types, shielding one’s lips from the wind, extreme temperatures and dehydration caused by low humidity.
