It was when my daughter was just a baby and the nurses in the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital used to rave about her full rose bud-like lips, that I started noticing other people's lips as well as my own. The nurses at the NICU where she was at for several months after she was born would exclaim: "Look at those adorable lips!" It was indeed her distinctly lovable feature even as a tiny preemie. Now as a teen, my daughter's lips are the envy of her peers. My own lips, I recall, used to be just as full and plump when I was in my teens and young adulthood. After all, she inherited those from me, right?

It is true that young lips are supple and smooth due to high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, found in its dermal layer, and combined with collagen, give its shape and fullness. So when I found the Episilk Lip Balm ($6.95 in the shop) as among the available Hyalogic products that I depend on for anti-aging skin care, I was so ecstatic and knew that with it I can have my lips back to its former plumpness.

Episilk Lip Balm is infused with high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid which acts as a space filler by binding to water. Its high quality formula also contains beeswax, a natural wax (made by bees) and emulsifier used in cosmetics; cocoa butter and shea butter; olive oil and aloe. It is all natural with no harmful parabens and fragrance free! Just simply massaging this balm every morning and evening or anytime I feel the need to for the past weeks, my lips were restored to, I'm happy to declare: "nourished and moisturized" status. I can always feel it take effect as soon as it seals in the moisture and softens my lips that tended to be drier at this mature stage in life and also more likely to be chapped in the summer. I absolutely delight on how it gave my lips a wonderful plumpness! Not only do my lips look younger but they feel good too as they are hydrated and velvety soft!

The Episilk Lip Balm comes in a convenient 14 g (1/2 fl.oz) white plastic jar which will probably last for at least 3-4 months. Best of all, it is so well priced under $10 (unlike other brands of lip treatments with HA that cost over $20). This amazing product is definitely a super value find worth sharing as I do with my family and now my daughter and husband want their own jar!
