Omorovicza nailed it when they named this the ‘Perfecting Lip Balm’ – it’s the ultimate ‘your lips but better’ product that will have you questioning how you ever lived without it.
The subtly plumping formula makes your lips look healthy, hydrated and like you’ve been keeping on top of drinking 2 litres of water a day. No dehydrated lip wrinkles for you!
Even a minimal amount of this lip balm seriously packs a punch. It feels so soothing, healing and nourishing, sinking deep into the lips instead of just sitting on top of them. If you’ve ever had dry, dehydrated lips, you’ll know how wonderful it feels to use a lip balm that actually moisturises instead of just creating a barrier and coating the top layer of your lips. This does just that.
The consistency of this lip balm is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. It feels like a gel-balm hybrid – just solid and thick enough to be in a pot but transforms with the heat of your fingertip and melts instantly on contact with the lips. The texture is silky but not slippy, gripping but not waxy; the perfect level of plushness without feeling thick, gloopy or sticky. Thanks to the eucalyptus in the formula, there’s a very slight cooling sensation which is wonderfully refreshing and feels just heavenly.
The balm not only smooths over any uneven texture such as cracks and dry patches, but perfects any uneven tone too.
The subtle rosy-pink shade is practically undetectable on the lips in terms of providing any pigmented colour, but has just that hint of milky opaqueness that softly blurs and camouflages discolouration.
I usually apply twice a day as part of my morning and night skincare routines. A thin layer will give you a naturally ‘just woke up like this’ hydrated look, or you can add an extra layer for a some glossy, light-reflecting shine.
If my lips are particularly chapped due to cold weather, I sometimes reapply a tiny amount throughout the day to give my lips a little top up of hydration. We all know prevention is better than cure, so I prefer to keep on top of moisturising my lips and not wait until my lips feel dry again.
the key ingredients, claims and results
“Hyaluronic Filling Spheres – plumps the lips and smooths surface imperfections, while providing long-lasting hydration.” My lips do look smoother and fuller when I’m wearing this lip balm thanks to the boost in hydration and glossy finish- but don’t expect a miracle-worker!
“Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – increases lip volume over time.” This is a difficult claim to measure objectively, but my lips are definitely plumper looking than they were a few months ago before I started using the Perfecting Lip Balm.
“Omega 6 Ceramide – retextures the lipid matrix to support and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function.” I’ve found that the longer I use this Perfecting Lip Balm, the less I’ve needed to reapply; it’s improving the hydration of my lips in the long term.
“Omorovicza’s Patented Healing Concentrate™ – leaves skin firmer, suppler and more youthful in appearance.” The fine dehydration wrinkles/lines in my lips aren’t as noticeable since using this lip balm.
I’m quite a good test subject for lip balms; my lips are dry and dehydrated even in the midst of Summer. So if a lip balm works for me, I feel confident in recommending it to anyone and everyone that will listen!
