to water for activation. Keeping your mouth closed with pursed lips and using damp/wet hands, apply gentle pressure to the entire mouth area while you massage the peel into the lips and surrounding area, but do not β€œrub” your skin. Within 15-20 seconds, solids should form under the fingertips. This means the peel is activating correctly and is now combining with your dead tissue (proteins). The solids you feel are a combination of the peel and the epidermal tissue. The peel is applied as a gel and removed as small solids, after having combined with the dead tissue. Massage for 1-3 minutes to ensure that all of the product has combined with as much excess lip tissue as possible and that no peel has been wasted. Rinse with warm water, gently cleanse the lips and surrounding tissue, rinse again with cool water, to ensure the peel is completely removed. Peel lips as often as daily, but 3x per week is optimal and produces exquisite, enviable results!

Water is the most common cosmetic ingredient of all. It often makes up the largest portion of a product, and is thus typically found at (or near) the top of an ingredients list.

In most cases, the purpose of water within an ingredient list is to act as a solvent - this means it's there to help dissolve other ingredients into the formulation.

Water also happens to be necessary for all life on Earth. If you see this, drink a glass of water. Stay hydrated!

Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil is derived from castor oil and polyethylene glycol (PEG). It is used as a emollient and emulsifier.

As an emulsifier, it helps prevent ingredients from separating. It also helps make the other ingredients more soluble; it is often used to solubilize fragrances. This increases spreadability and elongates shelf life in a product.

Emollients help soothe and soften the skin. They do this by creating a protective film on your skin. This barrier helps trap moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. Emollients may be effective at treating dry or itchy skin.

This ingredient may or may not be vegan, depending on the source.

The term 'fragrance' is not regulated in many countries. In many cases, it is up to the brand to define this term. For instance, many brands choose to label themselves as "fragrance-free" because they are not using synthetic fragrances. However, their products may still contain ingredients such as essential oils that are considered a fragrance.

Parfum, or fragrance, can be a blend of hundreds of chemicals or plant oils. This blend can cause allergies and sensitivities on the skin.
