I hope you enjoy my little video I made talking about some of the ingredients in LipSense!
With the revolutionary long lasting lip color, of course there is questions on what IS in it!
I am going to expand slightly on whats IN LipSense to make it LipSense. The highly moisturizing, long lasting lip color doesn’t just provide the finishing touches to your look, it protectss your lips from the elements! The color pigments and proprietary formulations create a mechanical shield for the lips, think protection from sun rays, wind and dirt flying around outside. I’m going to go into a couple of the “hot topic” ingredients here!
SD-40 Cosmetic Alcohol
(the cause of the possible tingling and exfoliation)
If your lips are not exfoliated, they are chapped and dry, and you put cosmetic grade alcohol on them… I bet you are going to feel a little somethin’ somethin’..
Keep your lis moisturized frequently with our glossy gloss at the beginning of your usage of LipSense & your life will be MUCH better, well your lip life for sure.. (;
Alcohol kills bacteria (any other germ freaks here?!) so your LipSense will never go bad and is what causes that tingly feeling (a little like toner tingle) when you apply LipSense. There are different types of alcohols in skin care. The specific alcohol in LipSense will dry out skin when used alone.
This product does not work without the gloss that goes on top and shouldn’t be used without it. This also what acts as an exfoliate and why when you start using LipSense your lips will peel a little.
Denatured alcohol is the first ingredient listed in the LipSense lip color, so it makes it very important to talk about. Alcohol has to be denatured before being added for use in products and when used alone, is a drying agent. It serves as an antifoaming agent, cosmetic astringent, solvent, and viscosity decreasing agent. It is added to LipSense to aid in the exfoliation process, which allows LipSense to remove the wax build up from years of chapstick, make-up, and other lipstick use; and it helps the color to adhere to the lips.
Just another reason it’s SO important to use that Gloss!
This ingredient is listed as an active ingredient in the LipSense color itself. It is deemed safe to use by the FDA in the concentration set forth in the LipSense color. However, if you are allergic to this ingredient or other fragrances, it is my strong recommendation that you stay away from LipSense altogether. But if you’re not allergic, you have nothing to worry about. The scent of LipSense disintegrates in less than a minute and should not be a major area of concern.
Acrylates copolymer is also listed as an active ingredient in the LipSense colors. It is not tested on animals, LipSense and all SeneGence products are cruelty free. It has been deemed safe for use by the FDA in cosmetics and LipSense abides by all FDA regulations and concentrations set forth by the agency.
