At the same time, many individuals would like the perfect pout without drastically or permanently changing their appearance. For those, the beauty industry has given rise to the development of lip plumpers. In this review, we will be discussing SkinMedica HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System, a two-step treatment that claims that it can smooth and hydrate the lips and that it is suitable for all skin types – enhancing color and leaving them looking voluminous.
HA5 Lip Smooth Ingredients
- HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer
- Butylene Glycol
- Polysilicon- 11
In our research, we did notice that this product contained predominantly chemically derived ingredients. Dimethicone is a smoothing, silicone polymer that could aggravate acne according to some findings. HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer is another artificial polymer that is included for its smoothening abilities. Glycerin is used across many industries but would have been added to this product as a moisturizer. Butylene Glycol is an alcohol, which acts as a solvent in cosmetics. While Polysilicone- 11 is a film-forming agent that would add to the smooth appearance of the lips.
