Neova skincare has launched a new lip product called Cu3 Intensive Lip Repair. As the name indicates, it is a lip treatment designed to sooth, ultra-nourish and visibly repair the lips from damaging effects of wind, cold and sun exposure.
Here are the Key Ingredients :
Copper Peptide Complex [CpC] : Also known as Bis (Tripeptide-1) Copper Acetate, a delivery system that uses the body’s natural protective carrier to deliver proprietary copper peptides, an essential micronutrient for skin health, for maximum restorative benefit.
Petrolatum : Forms an occlusive film on the skin’s surface, preventing moisture loss due to evaporation and protects against irritation.
Mineral Oil : A non-comedogenic, occlusive substance that helps improve the epidermal barrier function.
Glycerin : A humectant that attracts essential moisture to the skin.
While I love my Fresh Sugar Lip treatment for during the day (it has a good dose of hydration plus SPF), I wanted a color-free intensive treatment for night time or when I am typing away at my desk. And Neova’s Cu3 Intensive Lip Repair fits the bill! The treatment contains Copper Peptide Complex that helps build an essential barrier around the lips, protecting against chapping and other lip irritations. The lightweight formula isn’t tacky or sticky and nourishes skin to replenish moisture loss, leaving lips feeling soft and smooth. It can also be used under your lip color to keep lips comfortably hydrated. A little goes a long way with this one and I like the slanted applicator that just seems more hygienic. Plus, the size is also purse friendly!
I’ve been using the treatment for a few days now and I do think it keeps my lips softer. The formula not only effectively heals dry lips but also promises to reduce lines around the lips for a younger looking appearance. The only negative is the price ($22 for 0.29 oz) that I think is a bit steep for a lip treatment, even with the anti-aging benefits that it offers.
