DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Lip Enhancer: Review

Press sample
According to Dermaquest, their new Stem Cell 3D Lip Enhancer gives you "something to pout about."
This refreshing lip enhancing gloss repairs, plumps, firms and hydrates while preventing DNA damage and enhancing your lip’s natural color.

-Botanical plant stem cells help rejuvenate and protect the skin
-Potent peptides promote skin firmness and smoothness
-Antioxidants help scavenge free radicals in the skin
-Helps improve the appearance of skin discoloration
-Repairs and prevents DNA damage from UV and environmental factors
-Enhances epidermal and dermal hydration
Advancements with stem cell technology have continued to provide more powerful and effective marine derived and botanical plant stem cells in the skin care market. DermaQuest combines the latest generation of plant stem cells to reduce pigmentation, fine lines, and protect the skin from environmental damages. These plant stem cells contain all the active molecules of the plant to effectively address multiple areas of concern. Sea Fennel, Edelweiss, Gardenia, and Lilac plant stem cells are incorporated into some of the most advanced anti-aging products included in the Stem Cell 3D collection.
Dermaquest contends that this glossy lip enhancer instantly moisturizes and plumps the lips while simultaneously protecting them against free radical damage. There is an unmistakable tingle from the peppermint oil, but I found it neither painful, nor uncomfortable. My lips were unmistakably hydrated from use, and I experienced a slight plumping effect as well. The glossy shine is quite nice, but it is colorless- therefore if you want a touch of color beyond the pigmentation of your lips- then you will need to add another lip product. That said, I prefer to use this lip treatment on its own so as not to dilute any of the benefits by adding additional lip products. I find that my lips look and feel great during and after use, so much so that I will likely buy a tube once this one is all used up.

Ingredients: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Lauryl Laurate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Fragrance, Tribehenin, Sorbitan Isostearate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Silica, Dimethyl Silylate, Butylene Glycol, Hyaluronic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Benzyl Nicotinate, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Oil, Lecithin, Menthol, Sodium Saccharin, Camphor, Glycerin, Leontopodium Alpinum Meristem Cell Culture, Xanthan Gum, Gardenia Jasminoides Meristem Cell Culture, Maltodextrin, Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac) Leaf Cell Culture Extract.

Overall assessment: Given that I have a ridiculously large stash of lip products, one might think that this was just another one in the lineup, but I am actually quite impressed by how great my lips look and feel after using this product!
