First of all the packaging of Kaplan MD Lip 20 Treatment was not good. The lid of the tube came off within the first two weeks of using it and in order to keep it from getting God knows what on it from my purse I had to put it in a snack baggie to keep it clean.

I like the product but I am not thrilled about it. It made my lips tingle at first which told me they were in need of some moisture.  It did not seem to be more than a lip balm like Burts Bees. As far as a lip plumper, it did do that, but I have full lips but very dry.  It did seem to help with that.

I would use it if given to me, but I would not purchase it. For $30 it seems a bit overpriced and some of the ingredients like the Black Cohosh I am not sure I approve of due to the studies on it.

If I were giving it a grade it would be a C overall. Good feel on the lips but due to the packaging and price, I think I will stick to Burt's Bees lip balm.
