Product summary

"MILK MAKEUP - KUSH Lip Glaze" has a good moisturizing formula. To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. MILK MAKEUP - KUSH Lip Glaze ticks this box. Humectants in this product (sodium hyaluronate, butylene glycol and caprylyl glycol) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Emollients in this formulation (palmitoyl tripeptide-1, cannabis sativa seed extract, cannabis sativa seed oil, carthamus tinctorius seed oil and persea gratissima oil) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.

Ingredient callouts

  • This moistruizer also contains peptides (palmitoyl tripeptide-1 0.50% - 0.75%). Peptides is a very big group of ingredients. They all consist of a different combination of amino-acids. Our skin produces peptides naturally. Some of them work as natural anti-biotics, promote wound-healing and production of collagen. The scientists are still studying how effective the topical application of peptides is, but it is very likely that peptides in skincare are helpful. They might be able to support skin barrier restoration and even have an anti-aging benefit. At the very least, they certainly help attract water to the skin and support the hydration in this way.
