Antioxidant Lip Repair Restorative Treatment, for Damaged or Aging Lips has an interesting, somewhat greasy lotion texture that provides lips with two forms of vitamin E for antioxidant benefit but lesser amounts of potentially helpful plant extracts and a peptide. This treatment was recently reformulated, and the latest version isn’t quite as good as the previous formula, so we’ve lowered the rating a bit.

This remains a good, though pricier, lip treatment whose core ingredients can take care of dry lips—though the latest formula does seem to contain more denatured alcohol than the prior version, which isn’t ideal.

Claims

SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair prevents premature aging while restoring moisture and smoothing the surface of the lips. It uses two powerful antioxidants, silymarin and vitamin E, to shield the delicate lip area from the ravages of sun, smoke and air damage. Special botanical emollients hydrate and heal while an AHA-free exfoliating complex softens and smooths the texture of your lips.

Brand Overview

SkinCeuticals At-A-Glance

With a strong presence in the professional (meaning spa and aesthetics) skincare market, SkinCeuticals has a mostly well-deserved reputation for producing serious-minded, research-driven products, several of which are centered on L-ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C).

There are many good reasons to shop this line; it boasts a lineup up impressive vitamin C products, as well as some good retinol options and sunscreens. Even better is that the majority of its anti-aging products are packaged in containers that will protect their contents from light and air. Focusing on what Skinceuticals does best (which is serums, sunscreens, and specialty products) will be money well spent for visible results. The main drawbacks of this line are some products that contain fragrance ingredients, as well as potentially-drying alcohol, though they represent the minority of the brand’s offerings.
