Pevonia LipRenew Boosts Lackluster Lips in a Big Way
I am a long time personal Pevonia fan. For The Advice Sisters Beauty Fashion and Lifestyle Site, I’ve reviewed lots of Pevonia products from their various collections going back to about 2006. If you type ‘Pevonia” into our search box on the upper right had side of this page and every page, most if not all of these reviews will come up (the even earlier ones are in the advicesisters “What Works” beauty review archives) . The reason I love Pevonia’s products is that the spa products and at-home products are high performance, and make you feel pampered and special, using natural ingredients, great scents, and effective formulas. I also love that Pevonia offers so many many different skin and bodycare lines to target various skin types. There’s something for every person at every age.
The last couple of years I lost touch with Pevonia, but happily, I just re-connected at a launch for a fabulous new product at the Suagr Factory in NYC’s meatpacking district — Pevonia LipRenew ($55.00 0.5 fl. oz.) — an anti-aging lip filler/plumper that is going to make a lot of women who crave poutier lips with less lines around them, much happier.
LipRenew For Less than Lovely Lips: The first thing I liked about LipRenew was the Oxygen-free pump. But it’s the product inside that makes all the difference and it’s almost effortless to use — no painful injections of fillers necessary. For those who want the bottom line, it’s an intense, anti-aging lip cream that not only instantly plumps your lips and actually adds a bit of pink-ish tint, but also smooths lines and wrinkles on and around the lips while blurring imperfections. You won’t see a dramatic change in ten minutes, but you will see poutier lips. Used twice a day as directed over time you might reduce those annoying little lines and folds that make lip products “travel” and that can age you faster than faded film star Nora Desmond (who can forget this movie classic and the aged film star’s line: “I’m ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille“).
Not Just For Anti-Aging: While LipRenew is great for dealing with mature lips, it also moisturizes and repairs your skin with Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Sesame Seed Extract, Shea Butter and Capsicum. So if you’re a younger woman and you want those (“Kardashian) lips without filler or serious intervention, use this product and then add a sexy lip color and a shimmery gloss, and you’ve got the look without too much of an investment of time or money. I saw how this worked, first hand, at the launch event. However, if you are a smoker or you have less than lovely lips, or you really do have a lip area that has seen better days, LipRenew targets your concerns.
How to Use LipRenew: Pevonia suggests using LipRenew day and night for a cumulative effect as well as an immediate one. For daytime use, after cleansing and toning, use a very small quantity of product on the lips and massage it in well until it is completely absorbed .Then apply your favorite lipstick or gloss as desired. At night, apply it all over lips, lip contour, wrinkles and folds. Massage well until completely absorbed. Wash hands, then add whatever other skincare products you use.
Some Like It Hot: Like many lip plumpers, Pevonia’s LipRenew features “Capsicum Frutescens Fruit extract” which is a dried extract of chili peppers. In this particular product, it’s fairly intense, and it does tingle. If you find the tingle of peppers too much in most lip plumpers, you’ll find this one to be more so but this is how most plumpers get your lips pouty, so no pain, no gain (really, it’s not painful, just a bit noticeable for a few minutes). Pevonia says the temporary effect is due to the circulation enhancement for optimum absorbency and results. One thing to note, wash your hands after applying LipRenew and avoid contact with the eyes so you don’t spread any capsicum on other parts of your skin by accident. Your experience will how long your skin tingles vary depending upon how sensitive your skin is. My personal experience was a few minutes but it wasn’t unpleasant and I quickly forgot about it anyway.
