Thread: Lips! Lips! Lips!

    Lips! Lips! Lips!

    So as my skin gets brighter I've been working on my lips too. I have a naturally dark brown upper lip and a pink lower lip -which I love - makes me look liplined from the 80s

    But I figured as skin got lighter the difference would be drastic, what I've been doing:

    At night
    LA cream concentrating on the darker bits leave for 10 mins then coat with vaseline.
    when washing face I use my flannel to gently scrub the dead skin.

    My lips are pink, the top is still pinkish-brown but although I want it a bit lighter I don't really want that to change.

    During the day
    I got this recommended by Toffee and its the bees knees. I use it on my cheek too.

    Just thought I'd share, what are you guys doing to yours?

    I've been using pink nipple cream for the last few days and will be doing an la peel (30%) on them on the weekend. Got the idea from a couple of users and it's said to be effective but of course it's too soon to tell. I'll update in a few weeks though for sure!

    Your lips sound amazing though! Unfortunately I've got the standard all-over brown lips which have gotten darker over the years through no spf balm use and smoking Bad times.

    Great to heard that...does it add any color/pink to your lips when you apply it? Is it sticky or does it have an odor? I may give this a try...I always wanted a good sunblock for my lips.

    Oooh glad to see this others are getting results, I figured if I got desperate I would use a lightener as well but I don't think I'll need it.

    The lip balm has sunblock, and also a nice tint to it, pink/reddish I've noted my lips look great when I wear it out, no odour its not glossy like a foundation stick consistency

    Already?!? Damn. I've only done 2 and they're still dark. How long do you leave your LA peels on your lips for? I leave mines on for 30 min.
