Review: 24k Gold Lip Masks. Fad or Fabulous?

I’d love to say that I don’t often fall for new beauty fads, but that would be an enormous lie! I have to admit, I am a huge sucker for good marketing and a few beautiful celebrities saying that this is their trick, so it was inevitable that the latest craze of 24k Gold Lip and Face Masks, wouldn’t be far away from my purchases.

These masks are widely available and not overly expensive so I thought I’d give them a go and share my experiences with you all.

Firstly, I’ve tried the lip masks, these strangle shaped slimey products are surprisingly relaxing, once you can position yourself for them to stay on your lips that is.

The lip masks are said to be infused with plant collagen, are designed to increase cellular metabolism and help replenish moisture, leaving lips smoother and healthier.

How to use:

Whilst the masks I used, didn’t come with instructions, it didn’t take me long to find some tricks and tips online, so here is my method of use:

Firstly, cleanse and exfoliate your face and lips, I simply used my usual daily facial scrub whilst in the shower so that all the dead skin is removed and the moisturising is going onto beautifully fresh skin.

I then removed one of the lip masks and placed it across my lips and chilled out for 30 minutes and remove.

Simple!

Results:

I’ll be brutally honest, the feeling of the mask did give a very slight tingle and was relaxing and cool so were very comfortable to wear, but, did I have a fuller plumper pout afterwards? Nah not really!

I’m a little¬†disappointed that I couldn’t recreate a Kardashian inspired look in 30 minutes, but of course I was fooling myself to think it would give really good results. But I can see a very slight plump and my lips do appear to have a healthier glow!

In reflection, my lips did feel moisturised and smoother and application of my favourite shade of lipstick felt much better on application and has stayed in tact for a little longer.
