For a long time, I was able to keep lip lines away. But I was shocked last year when I noticed, there they were. Boo.
Though I used moisturizer and anti-aging products on most of my face as well as specialty products like eye cream and neck cream, I never thought about the skin around my lips. It never occurred to me. I don’t think I even bothered applying moisturizer around my lips. And lip balm – that went on my lips, not around them.
Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex
But age and sun decrease hyaluronic acid in our bodies and skin, and I haven’t been doing anything to put it back in and around my lips. I wish I had known about a product like Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex to help stave off those lip lines, but I think the product is quite new.
Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex isn’t a lip balm. It’s a skin treatment with advanced hyaluronic acid, peptides and retinol developed for the lips and lip area to:
- increase lip hydration
- soften the appearance of upper lip lines
- enhance volume and definition of lips.
Hyla3D HA Lip Complex contains Jan Marini’s Hyla3D complex made up of several forms of HA as well as peptides and antioxidants to increase production of collagen and elastin. Marini skincare products use advanced technologies to increase the effects of HA. Here are the key ingredients listed on the Marini website:
- Ceramide 2
- Tyramine Hydrochloride
- Cross-Linked HA
- Liposomal Encapsulated HA
- Tissue Respiratory Factor
- Coenzyme Q10
Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex is a thick white unscented cream that comes out of the tube’s tip in a skinny ribbon. A little goes a long way. It almost instantly disappears into my skin and lips. It can be worn under lipstick with absolutely no problem.
My Experience with Hyla3D HA Lip Complex
I have vertical lines above my upper lip and below my lower lip particularly on the left side. I have been disturbed to see how noticeable they’ve become. I was eager to try Hyla3D HA Lip Complex to see if it would help make the lines less visible.
I’ve been using Hyla3D HA Lip Complex on and off for about 3 months usually at night before bed. The packaging recommends using it on a regular basis twice a day. In all honesty, I haven’t used it everyday and I haven’t used it twice a day. I need to get more disciplined and do that!
Most likely because I haven’t committed to using the product as directed, I haven’t experienced any major changes in the vertical lines in my lips. Instead, the Lip Complex acts like filler in my lines and makes my foundation look smoother.
I am fortunate that my dry lips still have plenty of volume so I haven’t noticed any volumetric changes. The HA does help hydrate my dry lips, though I don’t really use it too much on my lips because I can get good results hydrating my lips with a much less expensive lip balm.
My review is rather equivocal: I need to commit to using the product on a regular basis. But I also think that Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex would be a good product for women who are just noticing the beginnings of lip lines. I think it would help stave off serious lines. I also think it would be an excellent product for women with lips that have lost volume. The combination of HA, peptides and antioxidants that hydrate and produce collagen and elastin should do wonders to help plump thin lips.
Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Lip Complex comes in a plastic tube with 0.5 oz. of product inside. It’s priced at $65. It is sold on the Marini website as well as on Lovelyskin.com, Dermstore.com, beautifiedyou.com, and others.
