It’s no secret that I’ve never been a huge fan of lip plumping products. The ingredient lists of lip plumpers usually contain cinnamon oil, capsaicin, ginger, mint, hyaluronic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids, wintergreen, retinol, etc. Some of these components are known to fatten our lips by irritating them, while others cause a little puffiness as well as flush by boosting the flow of blood through them.

Macrene Actives is a toxic-free plant based skincare line formulated by Dr. Macrene Alexiades. She’s received her three degrees from Harvard University: a BA from Harvard University, an MD from Harvard Medical School and a PhD in Genetics from Harvard University. And, she was a Fulbright Scholar with a research award year in Europe!

When I read about a lip filler treatment formulated by a board certified dermatologist that was an alternative to lip fillers, I knew I had to try it for myself. This topical lip treatment noticeably plumps and conditions, while combating fine lines and wrinkles. Packed with a multitude of active and natural ingredients, it can be worn under or over your favorite lipstick to gradually and naturally fill and soften your pout.

The lip filler treatment goes on as a light oil with a minty scent. It’s easily absorbed and instantly providing moisture. If needed, you can layer something like Aquaphor ontop at night! This needs to be used 2-3 times a day for good results.

This lip product was a total dream to use. A small amount went a long way and it didn’t cause any irritation or stinging. Within 2 weeks, I noticed plumper lips that had a visible difference in the plushness. My previously lined lips looked healthy and pouty. For anyone who wants plumper lips without resorting to fillers, this products comes highly recommended!
