“What is the difference between CITY Lips Original Formula and CITY Lips Advanced Formula?”
Sounds a little overwhelming, doesn’t it? I couldn’t agree more, and I remember asking the same exact question when I was very first introduced to CITY Lips. I’m going to break it all the way down for you.
Now, I know exactly what you’re thinking: “Both products deliver dramatic plumping effects, stimulate collagen, hydrate your lips and diminish lines, hmmm…. so which product is better?” There is no right or wrong answer! The difference between the Original Formula and the Advanced Formula is mostly a matter of personal preference.
CITY Lips Original Formula is packed with collagen building peptides and contains luxurious moisturizers that quickly absorb into the lips to soothe and plump. It is fortified with essential oils that repair and renew your lips revealing a smoother, fuller, hydrated lip. The Original Formula has a very smooth feeling, and is never sticky. It has a mild and sweet taste and adds a healthy subtle shine. The Original Formula is also a favorite of some men who want a “barely there” look with powerful lip plumping, and anyone who likes to keep their lips neutral and healthy.
CITY Lips Advanced Formula contains all of the same collagen building peptides as the Original Formula, but it has one extra *secret* ingredient… Hyaluronic Acid. If you’re new to our blog, you can find all of the information about Hyaluronic Acid in our previous post here. The Hyaluronic Acid in the Advanced Formula causes a more immediate puff and flush of the lips, and in some cases feels a little warm depending on the level of moisture that you already have in your lips. It feels a little more thick and has a beautiful glossy shine that stays put for a few hours. This product is also fantastic for men and women that wear CITY Lips overnight for even more plumping action while you sleep, because of its staying power.
Both products will achieve awesome results when used as directed, especially over time. We all run around aimlessly looking for miracle treatments that provide instant results, but the truth is, it’s not going to happen overnight. CITY Lips is different than any other lip plumper on the market because it not only adds moisture and an instant healthy plump, it has a compounding effect and actually builds and protects collagen in your lips over time.
Our little trick that we rant and rave about here in the office is taking before and after pictures. We mean it! Don’t be shy, take pictures of your lips from every angle and hang on to them! You’ll be amazed at the difference you’ll see when you refer back to them. Now I’ll tell you why I am so adamant about this: because everyone is their own worst critic. You know yourself and your body better than anyone knows you. You look at yourself in the mirror every single day, “looking” for change. Every day even the most subtle changes take place and as you slowly and subtly get used to those changes, of course you’re not going to notice a huge dramatic difference if you’re examining yourself every single day! Give it about 3 weeks and then take a look back. This is our little secret, and we dare you to try it!
Until next time, stay beautiful!
