On Saturday night I wanted to wear a bright lip so felt it would be a good opportunity to give the Repechage Lip Rescue Kit a go so my lips would be primed to perfection.
I had not heard of this brand before but they are an American professional skin care range which is mainly sold within premium health spas and resorts.
The kit contains an exfoliating lip cream which is non abrasive. In the past I have used a really abrasive exfoliator on my lips which left them feeling raw and sensitive but the Repechage Lip Rescue Kit felt much more comfortable for me. Massage it in, leave for a few minutes and then tissue off. Next, apply the lip moisturiser all over the lip and surrounding skin using the massaging tool included. Gently run the wheels of the massager back and forth over the lips – don't look at yourself in the mirror while you do this as it's hard to massage your lips while you are laughing at yourself!
I ditched the massager after a few seconds preferring to massage the cream in myself using my fingers. The cream itself was very light and absorbed quickly. It dried to an almost matte finish which felt slightly strange but would be great for people who are not keen on the glossy / sticky feeling some balms can leave.
The plumping gloss was also gentle but effective and thankfully lacked the stinging sensation that some plumping products cause. It had a smooth texture and a high shine that lasted well.
This kit is good for people who want to maintain the softness of their lips but probably not best suited for people who have sensitive lips or suffer from extreme dryness. Although my lips felt good afterwards, I personally prefer a thicker balm to moisturise my lips.
The products are only available as a set and are available from www.repechageuk.com priced at £25.75.
