Users can kiss lip exfoliators goodbye—with its Hyaluronic Marine Collagen Lip Cushion, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare hopes to help repair and strengthen lips’ protective skin instead of scrubbing it away.
Since lip skin cannot lubricate itself, the anti-aging product is intended to seal in hydration for dehydrated and damaged lips; according to the brand, this action is especially important to combat damage caused by environmental stressors and drying lip products.
Ingredients that help to achieve this include sodium hyaluronate, which has a smaller molecular weight than hyaluronic acid for easier penetration; sea whip extract to soothe sensitive skin; and antioxidative Centella asiatica to fight signs of aging. The product also includes caffeine, linseed oil and Rhodiola rosea.
After three days of use, 96% of consumers agreed that their lips were less rough, while 88% agreed their lips looked and felt healthier (in a consumer study).
