I wanted to get on here and post after I'd done a little test with a company. You know one of those "you'll see results in x amount of days" type product. Mainly, because Algenist had sent me a product that had a claim of seeing a difference in 10 days. So challenge excepted.
This is the Genius Liquid Collagen Lip. I LOVE the Genius Liquid Collagen in general and used every last drop. It done very well with my skin, and helped my hydration so much. So this is the lip version. Which has a a ceramic tip that is to be used to massage the lips. You still have the golden serum in the tube. Click it once, that's all you need. So just like the original face very this is super thin, like a gel/serum. This was super new for me because all my lip balms and lip masks are usually vaseline or waxt based. They leave a thick coated barrier on top. So I'm not sure how much actually sinks in. This being so much thinner I really thought it would flop. I didn't have high expectations.
So here's the official claim for the product:
"A vegan collagen lip treatment to deliver long-lasting benefits for fuller, younger-looking lips in as few as 10 days.
This unique dual-phase lip treatment suspends botanical lip enhancers and hundreds of beads of microalgae oil in collagen water to help visibly fill out lips and improve lip definition with long-lasting benefits. Formulated with active plant collagen, and Algenist's naturally sourced and sustainably produced Alguronic Acid, this formula helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the lips and mouth area for a youthful, more enhanced appearance."
And here's what happened. I used this like I was supposed to day and night. Read the directions and massaged like I was supposed to. The ceramic tip made it extra cooling, there's a hint of a minty taste and feel. It doesn't tingle at all. I took it around the outer part of the lips as well, like it said to do. Eventually, it got to where I really enjoyed using it. It was nearly theraputic like how a jade roller can be a relaxing thing. Like I said one click was enough did everyhting I was supposed to. With that being said I also took a before picture so I could compare 10 days later.
My lips have been cracking for a while now and with no reason because I was keeping them moisturized. The corners of my mouth were bleeding or were raw because they had little cuts in them but it was from the skin just breaking. I talked to my dentist and he said to just use vaseline. Tried it Doc and it didn't help. This is where Algenist comes in. I didn't expect much as you know. I noticed that even with the gel like consistency it still felt more hydrated like a very very thin lip balm. Then I noticed the lips had stopped cracking. Toward the end, I realized the corners of my mouth weren't raw or breaking and healing up. Then I took my final picture, which is above. I think with continued use, this will keep your lips comfy and plump. My lips don't seem to have as as many lines in them. So in other words they looked more filled out, or plump, and definitely more hydrated, dare I say "juicy". I'm still using it everyday. So I know it seems like an odd product and you nearly disregard it because it's a "lip product" that "plumps" etc. etc. but it's actually a very shocking game changer for me.
