Hopefully the title of this post didn’t scare you off. Believe it or not though, this product isn’t a one-hit wonder, meaning it can serve more than one purpose. I actually used the product for the intention of softening my parched lips. Let me give you the back story: I recently spent about a week in Phoenix for my graduate school graduation ceremony
and shopping (more on that later). Mind you, I had all my makeup packed and ready to go, carelessly forgetting my freaking lip balm :/ Now when it comes to vacation, I am very cheap. There are only 2 things I will blow money on: food and clothes. Items that I have forgotten at home are not in either of those categories. So, I settled for wearing lipstick to bed thinking that would miraculously soften my lips. WRONG! By the time I got home, my lips were begging for mercy. I tried Burt’s Bees, Carmex…nothing was working. Then, I remembered I had this baby in my drawer just waiting to be reviewed. I figured, why not try it and give it a go? What could possibly go wrong?
Ingredients from Nature:
- argan oil
- avocado oil
- baptisia extract
- grape seed oil
- jojoba seed oil
- olive fruit oil
- potassium chloride
- sweet almond oil
First thing that came to mind after reviewing these was, “wow that’s a lot of great stuff going on my lips!” I don’t what half of them even are, but hey, at least they sound good.
So I tried it overnight and it worked. Here’s what I did:
- I applied a very generous layer on my lips before bed after I brushed my teeth.
- I woke up 7 hours later and I had white, dead skin on my lips (gross, but necessary).
- While brushing my teeth, the dead skin brushed right off revealing soft and well-moisturized lips.
Vivicin is a clinically tested cold sore medicine that’s gentle and soothing enough to use every day.
So if this is a constant issue for you, no worries. Vivicim has you covered, daily if necessary.
Vivicin starts healing quickly—typically within 24 hours—and provides immediate pain relief.
I can’t attest to this since I actually used it for a different purpose, parched and painful lips. I can only imagine the results after my experience though.
I wish I had a before and after, but I don’t :/ If this happens to happen to me again (I’m sure it probably will), I’ll edit this post with photos. I’m telling you beauties, it’s an awesome product for parched lips. You can purchase the Vivicin Cold Sore Cream here.
