Review: Wrinkle Plus (Super Lip Repair)

Item Name: Wrinkle Plus (super lip repair)
Price: 248 yen
Bought from: Drugstore in Kyoto

Like I mentioned in my DHC Lip cream review, my lips and skin was really not adapting well to Japan's dry climate. I got increasingly worried when 2 lip balms later and the pain/ dryness was still not subsiding. 


I saw this product on sale while on my usual Drugstore pilgrimage. It was the first night of my Kyoto trip and as all the shrines in Kyoto close by 5pm, I didn't have anywhere else to go but Kyoto Central. I wanted to fully maximize my time and daily bus pass you see xD 

You can read more about my Japan trip when I blog about it ! But anyway I digressed x. X;


Anyway I randomly picked up this product because it claimed to be very good. 

Texture:
Very smooth and glides onto the lip. Product can be a little hard in Japan's cold weather and it needs to be applied with your finger.


Color: 
Appears translucent white in the jar, applies clear.

Effects:
This has got to be the best product I bought in Japan. I bought this a week after being in Japan and after using a makeup remover that my skin was allergic to.

Meaning to say, I used it at a time where my lips were really not in a very good condition. They were not flaking yet but my lips was already feeling like sandpaper(little bits of dried skin on top) and the sides had cracked slightly. My skin & lips have the habit of turning red and painful before it starts flaking and my lips were at that hurting stage.

I had used the DHC Lip Cream for 2 days without much help but the moment I rubbed this unassuming looking product onto my lips there was an instant hydration. The pain was gone instantly and i felt so relieved! Granted of course, the effects are not permanent and
you still need to constantly apply it 

Pros:Highly effective and affordable

Cons:Jar design makes applying a little troublesome. Now I just kiss the surface of the product instead of using my fingers ahaha
