Day 12 of 24 Days of Beauty Advent Posts-Starskin Lip Mask

Day 11 is the Starskin plumping and hydrating bio-cellulose second skin lip mask.

We are all used to putting masks on our faces - sheet masks, clay masks, charcoal masks.. but I had not heard of a lip mask before. And actually it is like a face mask for your lips. At this time of the year, I don't know about you, but my lips are like dry volcanic platelets. No matter how much and often I apply a moisturising lip balm, the cold weather and central heating continues to dry those smackers out. And dry, flaky lips mean not only constantly picking at them which can lead to irritation and sore lips but worse than that - bad looking lipstick!

So I was intrigued by this lip mask which promises to hydrate and plump. It is very much like a sheet mask in that there are three layers, two of these are the outer layers and the middle is the serum soaked layer which soaks in to your lips.

A tip is to take off one outside layer, smooth the middle layer on to your lips and then carefully peel off the other outside layer. And not like I did which was to remove both outside bits and then try to unpeel and smooth on, what I can only describe as trying to get a squid to lie flat on your lips! But once on you can then relax for 15 minutes. It's fine, doesn't feel uncomfortable and you can still talk. It's almost like a second skin (as long as you smooth it out).

After the 15 minutes, I easily peeled off the lip mask and my lips did feel softer, definitely. However, would I recommend you buy these? No I wouldn't because I didn't feel that my newly hydrated lips stayed that way for very long at all.

Get yourself some Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream for your lips, now that is a winter saviour.

Sorry for a negative post but you always get at least one duff advent window!



  1. A lip mask sounds a bit silly to me! I'll be avoiding them!xx
