Neutrogena Lip Boost Intense Moisture Therapy

The Neutrogena Lip Boost Intense Moisture Therapy lip treatment promises “lips full of softness” so I put it to the test. Did Neutrogena Lip Boost deliver?

First a quick look at the expectations set by Neutrogena:

  • Makes lips softer, smoother and fuller looking.
  • Brings out the natural blush of your lips.
  • Massages on with a soft sheen.

I purchased the product at the local drugstore for less than $7.00 and got to testing right away.
The lip treatment comes in a self-contained squeeze type application device with a slanted tip. The tip (think new lipstick tip) made it really easy to glide the creamy moisture therapy to my lips. The initial dose of cream came out a bit thick and was messy. After the “accidental priming” all subsequent moisture treatments dispensed without a problem. Perhaps there was air trapped in the container?

The Neutrogena Lip Boost Intense Moisture Therapy has the soothing elements of cucumber and conditioning agents such as chamomile, and aloe as well as the expected moisturizing ingredient: glycerin. There was one surprise on the ingredient list; it was sesame oil. Sesame oil is well known for it’s richness and moisturizing abilities. There was also peppermint – possibly to increase the blood circulation in the lips to give a plumper and rosier appearance to the lips.

What I Liked:

  • Quick treatment for dry lips.
  • Great to use in the AM to get rid of that nasty dry skin that develops overnight.
  • Does make lips rosy and soft.
  • Inexpensive.

What I didn’t Like:

  • Felt oily.
  • Caused a slight tingle when first applied.
  • Didn’t last long must be applied often.
  • Had a tendency to leave white cream behind instead of melting away into a nice sheen. (easy enough to deal with; wipe with finger and massage in)

Ms. distressedDERMA rates this product:
The Neutrogena Lip Boost, Intense Moisture Therapy (available at drugstore.com)- was a nice product for the price but it’s definitely not a product I would consider buying for long term moisture and increased lip volume – as it doesn’t deliver that. This is a product that I would recommend instead of using Chap Stick or other waxy lip balms.
