I was born with fish lips.
When I was pregnant for the first time, I asked my husband Jeroen what he thinks the baby will look like.
“I want the baby to have your lips,” he said.
True enough, our two sons have plump fish lips.
In high school, there was a guy who referred to my lips as “Bolivian lips”. I have no idea why.
In 2001, when Angelina Jolie became famous for playing Lara Croft, her full lips became the new beauty standard.
I remember my sister coming home from a trip abroad with her pasalubong for me—lip plumpers.
Not that I needed it.
Here’s a fact: As you grow older, you start to wrinkle—not just on the forehead or on the corners of your eyes. You get wrinkles around your lips, and the lips become smaller. Fortunately, there are now many options to remedy that.
But many people are scared of any cosmetic procedure that involves needles and surgical knives.
Fillerina is a brand that works for people who are afraid of medical procedures.
Their 14-day Filler Treatment has six hyaluronic acids of varying weights that allow absorption up to the skin’s inner layers.
Hyaluronic acid is the new big thing in skin care. It has powerful anti-aging properties. Hyaluronic acid also has the capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture.
“The rest of my face has a newfound plumpness, I no doubt attribute to the six sexy molecules in Fillerina. Others report decreased wrinkling, increased cheekbone volume, and even bigger lips, according to the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. 98% satisfaction, guys. That’s a good product,” said Brennan Kilbane in the beauty website Into the Gloss after using Fillerina.
Now Fillerina introduces Lip Plump, a product made by Labo Cosprophar Suisse and distributed in the Philippines by Vizcarra Pharmaceutical Inc.
Lip Plump promises smooth and fuller lips for two weeks to a month.
Use it five times a day for two weeks on clean lips to achieve the full effect. You can even apply lipstick on top of the Lip Plump.
Fillerina Lip Plump comes in Dose 2 and Dose 3. The dose depends on the condition of your lips. Dose 2 is milder, while Dose 3 is for more wrinkled lips.
It is conveniently packaged in a clear tube with a roll-on tip.
There’s no pain, tingling or any discomfort. On application, it absorbs instantly and gives a smooth appearance to your lips.
After the two-week treatment period, you can still use Fillerina Lip Plump once a day.
Fillerina Lip Plump is available in the beauty section of The SM Store in SM Makati, SM Aura and SM Megamall.
