A N D I said...it's common sense if it *feels* like an allergic reaction to her...or if it really is.....doesn't matter...she should stop using the product....

What is to disagree or get tho? Do you think she should continue using it?

Needless to say, I am not rushing to use that everyday. There are lots of reviews online that say that regular use is not the best for your lips. If you want to use them occasionally, that is fine. If you use the ones without irritating ingredients, that is also fine.
Um...I don't use them. I tried a couple of the "lip plumpers" years ago, all they did was make my lips tingle - no plumping.


I did some research on them - they are just a waste of money.

I would think the plumping would be just a temporary affect, wouldn't it?

A lot of that stuff is a waste of money.

I didn’t know about the skin irritation issue...don’t want that. For whoever mentioned my teeth, they fine, thanks to years of orthodontia!
I think you will like it! No. it is not permanent, but it lasts. No cosmetic surgeon required.

People who think you should just "live with thinning lips" or "get over it" really need to understand that people like us do not judge people who just let "nature take it's course". If YOU are OK with that - FINE.

Your question was concise and well written. Never did you ask "How can I be OK with losing lip volume?"
Actually, we'd need a shrink to understand why some people are not bothered by such things, and others are.

To each their own.

NO ONE LIKES UNSOLICITED ADVICE. No one.

Do what makes YOU feel good during your allotted time on earth, and only listen to the advice of people who "Get" you.

If they do not, they have no business answering.

Yes. Temporary. And yes a waste of money.

Wanting to look our best isn't a "waste of money" for some of us..........& if you look good on the outside, you will probably feel good...or at least better....on the inside IMO.

Makeup is not a waste of money if you like it.....edit: just like anything else we may spend money on. A *true* waste of money tho......is stuff like smoking..........when people pay a small fortune to harm their health. Nobody is going to harm their health by using lip pumping gloss & lipsticks........so what is a "waste of money" for you isn't for me.............

lips, eyes, waist and visibility to strangers all disappear with age. aging has so many positives, but retaining youthful physical attributes isn't one of them! It is folly to try, in my opinion.

Good grief, I posted here for information/personal experiences/recommendations for a specific consumer product. I really don’t care to read anyone’s personal philosophy on life/aging/aesthetics.

Thanks to all who responded appropriately.

There are make-up techniques to help the lips look less thin. You can probably find a tutorial on YouTube.
