StriVectin Advanced Hydration Hyaluronic Omega Moisture Lip Mask - 8.5g - $32 - with a Deeply Nourishing Formula that wraps lips in a replenishing layer of omega-rich fatty acids to soothe dryness and prevent moisture loss.
Even better than a balm, this deeply nourishing formula is clinically shown to strengthen the lip barrier for lasting moisture with: hyaluronic acid - helps plump lips by drawing in hydration and retaining moisture for a naturally plumped lip; omega-rich fatty acids - derived from raspberry seed oil, to help strengthen the lip barrier by hydrating and sealing in moisture on the lips; and Moroccan pomegranate flower extract - highly concentrated in powerful antioxidants to help improve lip contour for fuller looking lips.
It's easy to use - it comes with a spatula that you use to apply to clean lips before bed and leave on overnight - they also recommend applying twice during the day. I love the texture, which starts as a rich, velvety, blackberry-flavored balm in its jar, and upon contact, transforms into a transparent, silky veil that smooths dry, dehydrated lips. I'm actually pretty well versed in lip masks - I have been using the Laneige one since Christmas and I had already decided that I wasn't buying it again because it just wasn't doing enough of anything better then my usual balm to merit the price - now I'm also not buying it again because the StriVectin one is a million times better - I now actually wake up with smooth, hydrated lips that look healthy and plump - I'm sold!
Available at drug and department stores across Canada as well as their online counterparts and amazon.ca.
