Shoppers in their 50s say this hydrating lip balm 'helped slow down time' — and it's on sale

What is it?

Somaluxe Lip Collagen works to soothe dry lips and smooth away signs of aging. Formulated with plant stem cells and collagen peptides, this balm "keeps lips young," according to fans, and is an effective way to prep your pout for chillier days and prevent chapping. Nab this little tub of TLC — on sale for $23 at Amazon — to help keep your lovely lips hydrated and looking their best.

Not only does this highly concentrated balm nourish and moisturize but it also can diminish pesky lip lines over time, according to shoppers.

Why is it a good deal?

We get it — $23 seems steep for a small jar of lip balm, but it's a bargain. A little bit of this cruelty-free product goes a long way. All you need is a thin layer, thanks to the collagen fibers, which absorb more effectively into your skin. In fact, one daily user confirmed that one jar "lasts for months."

Why do I need this?

The multitasking wonder works to smooth the appearance of lip lines and wrinkles. Among the active ingredients powering this product: Plant stem cells are derived from the globularia cordifolia flower, which the manufacture says can strengthen lips and protect agains cracking and premature wrinkles.

It also stars a blend of peptides! "Peptide laced products are primarily used to address anti-aging concerns, such as softening the look of wrinkles and helping to hydrate the skin," the Derm Review shared.

To perk things up, natural flavors added to the formula, crafted from vegetable glycerin, combined with strawberry and blueberry extract. This leaves it with a light, pleasant scent.

We also love what it leaves out: petroleum, fillers and synthetic additives.

Aside from treating signs of aging, the lip collagen heals dry and chapped lips. Shoppers say it makes the perfect base for lipstick, too.

What reviewers say

"I'm in my 50s, and of course, we got the lip lines, and the lips lose their plumpness," a five-star reviewer said. "I was skeptical of this, and it's a little pricey. But I used it for about a week now, and the lip lines are gone! My lips are smooth, and my husband even noticed! I've tried everything but injections. I swear this is magic. It lasts a long time, too. I've barely made a dent."

Another lip balm user said: "As a 50-year-old, I worry about the vertical lip lines that make the area from the upper lip to under my nose. This product is amazing and has helped slow down time in that area and, to me, even reverse it. It smells lovely and is such a great lip mask for overnight.

"I have been on the search for a lip moisturizer and line filler for plumpness," a shopper explained. "Never really found all I wanted in one product, but this product is as close as I have ever come to having it all! My lips feel very soft. My vertical lines seem blurred, there is light, if any, smell, and my lipstick goes on much smoother."

"Very creamy and easy to apply, but don't put too much on going to bed," another customer wrote. "It could get on sheets. Works nicely."

More than 4,700 Amazon reviewers have given it a perfect rating.
