I bought this for my mom, and she had me try it because she thought it was amazing. Honestly, I was indifferent. I scrub my lips every morning with a washcloth to remove dead skin, so maybe I didn't have any to remove when I used it? After using this product, I ended up having burning, peeling lips for a few days...maybe the product would have been helpful after the first use!
The lip balm in Lip Apeel is nice, but is in my opinion overpriced (as are most Beauticontrol products - just my opinion). The white exfoliating lip mask in Lip Apeel left my lips feeling sore. You leave it on to dry on your lips, and then rub it off. I found it to be irritating and difficult to remove - very clumpy-like. I can get much more effective and gentle exfoliating results by gently rubbing my lips with a wet washcloth. It's a good thing that the mask comes with a lip balm because after you use the mask, you will immediately need to apply the balm to add moisture back to your lips. I will not repurchase.
I thought I would love this product because I am somewhat of an addict when it comes to lip balm (carmex is my best friend). However, it left the area around my lips very dry and chapped feeling. It was quite uncomfortable for about 4 days after using it and I can still feel it some 6 days later...I will not use again but am enjoying my other BC products.
ALthough I love beauticontrol products I tried this before and at first I thought, wow, made my lips super smooth like it says. A week later I used it again and my lips got super dry and cracked really badly for a long time. I stopped using it ever since. I definitely would not purchase this again.
My sister inlaw sells Beauticontrol and swears by it all. I tried the lip apeel with the balm and its nice when its on, but as soon as I stop wearing it my lips are back to dry and cracked. So does it help? I dont think its any different from any other lip product. I wont be buying any. The price is too high. I can get the same results from chapstick.
This is an average product with really cute packaging. It's pricey but you get a lot of the lip scrub product. I exfoliate my lips with my toothbrush every time I brush my teeth, therefore I didn't notice anything different when I tried this product.
About 6 months ago, I stumbled across Lip Apeel and decided to give it a go. This is a two in one product with a lip peel and lip balm separated in one easy to carry, though not easy to use container...we'll get back to that. The product claims to get rid of dead, flaky skin on chapped lips.
The way you're meant to use this is by applying a thin coat of the peel on your lips. Let is dry for a few minutes and then rub it off with a wet cloth or tissue. After finishing, apply a bit of the attached lip balm.
Ok, so the final results: it does exactly what it says it will do. It quickly gets rid of dry, dead skin on the lips and the soothing lip balm really does help relax the lips after the treatment. Lip Apeel is "dermatologist, sensitivity and allergy tested...non-comedogenic and fragrance free." There are three down sides and they are major ones to overcome. The packaging is horrible - just.the.worst. Check out the picture: you have to unscrew the blue portion to get to the gloss - ok that's fine - I have small hands (but good luck if you don't). To get to the treatment you have to unscrew at the larger line between the two sets of words. This is where it gets annoying - nine times out of ten instead of getting to the actual product you open the outer casing which is just a PITA. It's not that big deal but....(problem #2)....when I drop 20 bucks for a lipbalm, I expect it to have no packaging issues. Yep, 20 USD. That's a lot for something that can made by hand at home. Finally, these things are nearly impossible to get. SkinLogics is a Beauticontrol line. Beautycontrol is similar to those other makeup companies where folks have parties and try to sell stuff to you. I found mine on Ebay so if want to try the product, you may want to look there first.
Would I buy another? Probably not. It's great for extreme cases of chapped/cracked lips, but regular use will destroy your sweet kisses. Also, as I mentioned above, you can make essentially the same thing at home with a quick sugar or salt scrub to the mouth. Hope this helps!
I do like this product very much, actually more than I expected. It smooths my lips and the edges and the balm is very emollient and moisturizing. My problem is with the packaging, the bottom part of the 2-piece is the lip peel and the insert pulled out of the case, so every time I unscrew it I end up with 3 pices in my hand. Not a huge problem but just annoying.
The best "lip stuff" ever. It scrubs the dead funk off your lips and then the balm makes your lips feel sexy. I would suggest you try it if you are invited to a bc spa night.
Great product. I always have chapped lips and I am constantly looking for ways to exfoliate and moisturize my lips. I'd never heard of BeautiControl but was pleasantly pleased. I went to a BeautiControl spa party over the weekend and was skeptical of this product when applied. Once I removed the exfoliator and applied the balm, all I could say was WOW. That was on Saturday and now it is Tuesday and my lips are still just as smooth without reapplying. I purchased this product to add to my arsenal :-)
