Finally, at the age of 48, vertical lines around my lips were beginning to form, and I was in search of a product that would help soften them. Truth In Aging introduced me to Your Best Face Define ($70 in the shop), and I was pretty curious to test it out.
Define is packed with several beneficial ingredients; like SynColl, which is supposed to stimulate collagen synthesis, remove wrinkles, firm and moisturize. SynTacks has properties that claim to improve the structure of aging skin. Define also contains white tea and vitamin E, which both have well-known antioxidant properties.
I agree with Kerry’s review that the formula certainly lasts longer than the average moisturizer for lips or skin. I have lips that need constant moisture (although I have been informed that YBF Define is not a lip moisturizer). It has a slippery – slightly sticky – consistency that takes some getting used to, and a light minty flavor from natural oils that isn’t too strong. A tiny, tiny amount (the size of half a grain of rice) went a long way.
I used the product overnight, and applied it during the day once or twice around the mouth and on the lips. Over the month I tested the product, it kept my lips and the area around the mouth soft and moist. Once I got used to the feeling, it was nice to know it was working on my skin that whole time.
I am hoping it did slow the progress of the vertical lines around the mouth, but this is hard to confirm after one month’s use. I did not notice any reddening or plumping of the lips as did the other reviewers. Perhaps my needs are not as acute as others who may use this product.
