This product's ingredient list is top notch, and if you use it regularly, your lips will be healthier. It is NOT equivalent to collagen injections with a lip wand. It IS a great exfolliant and DOES give lips a temporary boost of volume, and definitely color. If you're in the habit of keeping something on your lips, but don't always want to worry about reapplying an actual lip gloss or lip stick with color, keep this in your bag and use before running into the market, etc. You will likely notice your lips are redder, your own natural hue of red, than if you applied clear gloss alone. The consistency is better than a gloss for sure, and if you get carried away with application, your lips may "look like a clown," as my sister so blatantly pointed out to me on one such occassion. : ) Expect healthier lips, and some color enhancement. Great product if your aim is natural beauty. I'm on my third tube, and believe DermaQuest is a great line. Good luck!
I had read an excellent review of this product in a beauty blog that claimed it visibly increase the user's lip size - like collagen for the lips without having to be injected. I have applied it often since receiving it, but all it does is a tingle a little, while simply acting as an effective lip balm. I will never purchase this item again. It was a waste of money.
