Most Helpful Positive Review A special treat
I am a budget buyer and a brand buyer for all things Skyn Iceland. This company holds some of my most treasured splurges. This lip treatment really does work and it stays on my lips well. However, for the cost, a lip scrub or balm is just as effective. This is perfect for a full on spa night, or just if you have some really badly chapped lips. I would definitely say to use this if you are having a hard time healing with lip balm alone. The application is HUGE so I think the next one I use I will cut in half to make it last a few treatments.
Most Helpful Critical Review it's okay
I tried this with several other Skyn Iceland products and I was not terribly impressed with this one. It was a nice soothing treatment that I did before I went to bed. I saw results for about 45 minutes before I went to bed but when I woke up the results had expired. This might be better to use immediately before going out so the results are more obvious when needed.
Reviewed by 119 customers Best for lip lines
Dr.Annie from Owensboro KY
I am a 60 year old woman with noticeable lip lines, which was the reason I bought this product. I really like it for helping to minimize my lip lines, it does not plump lips, or really didn't for mine. I will buy again.

I think if I used one every day it would work towards lightening up the lines around my mouth but that would be expensive.
Only one piece in a two piece kit
Phoebe from Boston, MA
I bought this product from Anthropologie. It feels really nice and pampering, but I took off stars since one of the sealed packs contained only the plastic folding bit with the product flat out missing. When a pack of only two has half of the product paid for, that's a bit frustrating.
Plump and Hydrate
JBNYC9 from NY, NY
These little gems do exactly as they claim. My lips felt tingly and refeshed but the best part was that they truly looked hydrated and plump. I shared a pack with my mom and she was pleased as well. These are a great addition to a "treat yourself" kind of evening.
Refreshing but Oddly Drying
Paint0350 from Chicago
The skyn plumping lip gels were similar to other lip gels I've used from other brands except there was a slight cooling and even tingling sensation which I'd never felt with other brands. They also smelled really nice. They were difficult to keep on for the recommended time as they kept peeling off on their own, as if there wasn't enough of the actual product to keep them moist over my lips.
After use, my lips felt refreshed but I could see no plumping or evening of fine lines around my mouth. Each use resulted in the same outcome; no plumping and no evening of fine lines but I did notice that it dried my lips out just a bit, which knocks it down from 4 stars to 3 stars for me.
I received a pack of 3 and used each one, hoping to see results but instead, it dried my lips out enough that my skin peeled around my lips. I did like the tingling, cooling sensation as it felt refreshing. I wish the product had been more moisturizing.
In the end, the product didn't work as intended for me.
Lovscoffee12 from Chicago
I used this product on my lips. I have big lips to begin with and im always looking for something to take the dryness away. This did the trick. I liked that my lips came out softer and looking younger. I would definitely recommend it.
I would purchase this product.
starzine777 from SB, California
This product is soothing. It helped with any dryness along with a fruity scent to it. I like how this product is easy to use. I wasn't aware of the Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) and I haven't tried anything like the Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) before.
I look forward to buying this product
Sameka from New Orleans la
Upon opening the package was of a fruitful scent that I appreciated. The lip gel made my usually flat lips bigger and fuller and helped my lipstick appear more pleasing. I am in awe of results furthermore I plan on purchase and spread the good news to my friends.
AC from New York, NY
Received two packs and it wasnt quite what I expected. There didn't seem to be enough formula on both packs because it was a bit dry. I left the gels on for roughly 15 min but didn't notice any significant difference in moisture or volume of my lips.
Luxurious experience but little benefit
Kiaya32 from Columbus ohio
So this was a really fun product to use. Super easy to use, simple instructions and the lip gel sealed really well. They were overly large so no matter the size of your natural lips, it will fit. I didn't notice any tingling during or after as the instructions said but it was fun to use and a moment of self care. I noticed that my lips were smoother after use, though not plumped as in larger, and felt hydrated. I would use these again but not in looking for pumping, mostly the fun in use and hydration benefits.
A pick me up for the lips!
momof4 from Little Rock, AR
I used this product right before I left the house. I thought I would try it out at that time because I chose to forgo make-up that day. The product had a pleasant scent. It was easy to apply and not greasy at all. I used the cute little lips as directed. It had a cooling sensation (which I enjoyed) and was not bothersome at all. After ten minutes I pulled off the product and I could see a bit of a difference. Not drastic but enough to give me a confidence boost. It left my lips feeling refreshed and hydrated without a greasy residue. I'm happy with the performance of this product.
Steph from Fort Myers
It was a little awkward to wear but it did feel soothing. I don't think I got much plumping results but it was moisturizing.
I would buy it again
Babylush17 from Philadelphia, PA
I have never used plumping lip gels before so I was excited to try this free sample I got. I was skeptical at first but after using it for a night out on the town with my friends. I must say I was surprised at all the compliments I got from them. They all agreed that it made my lips look fuller as I normally have thin lips. I like the cooling sensation it gave my lips when I put it on as well as how soothing it was. I'm surprised I had no adverse reaction towards it and that's a plus. I would highly recommend this to everyone to try just to get that great effect. I would definitely buy this again if I ever needed. Excellent product indeed!
Not a plumper, great moisturizer.
VeeReal from Florida
I was excited to try the SKYN Iceland Plumping Lip Gel patch. I don't think this product should be marketed as a lip plumper as there is no plumping effects. Not for me at least. I did like the moisture which left my skin and lips feeling soft.
On a product label, the ingredients are listed in order of predominance, with the ingredients used in the greatest amount first, followed in descending order by those in smaller amounts. If you read the ingredients label in the picture I posted, the first ingredient listed is water...
I do appreciate that this company is cruelty free and that the product is free of harsh chemicals.
I now need this in my life!!
Tra_poy348 from Lexington, Ky
I've never used Skyn Iceland products before. But I was lucky to try their Plumping Lip Gel with wild berry extract. And I absolutely fell in love with this product. It helped out with my chapped lips and plumped them also. I will be buying this product again!!
Product Name means nothing
Beth in Cali from Sacramento, California
I love the packaging. But sadly that is about all I love. The application is awkward and clumsy and doesn't cling as it seems to advertise. If you accidently get some on your tongue or in your mouth, the taste is pretty bad (chemical taste). The product didn't plump my lips at all, and barely made them more moist than when I started.
A must have

Love the way my lips feel, outstanding
Cool experience, but questionable effectiveness
seeJsave from New Orleans, LA
While I enjoyed the experience of using the plumping lip gels, I'm not sure about the effectiveness of the product. I saved these to test out before date night, and while they definitely made my lips brighter, I didn't see much pumping action or increased moisture. I have pretty dry lips and was hoping this product would rejuvenate them after the cold, winter weather, but despite a quick boost, the results weren't lasting. I was also a bit worried about the cooling sensation agaisnt my sensitive skin for an extended period of time since the gels are quite large and cover a lot of area around your lips. Despite falling short on results, these are a fun addition to spa night.
MsTish! from Tennessee
The Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) compared to other products I've tried, Is The BEST out! The Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) Is the BEST BRAND on the market! I Would certainly buy The Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) before another brand now! I wasn't aware of The Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) before participating in this program. I would also HIGHLY recommend The Plumping Lip Gels (2-pack) to others before another brand now!
Fun to use
Sassy Maria from Los Angeles
This was cute and fun to use. It made my lips like they were plump. However, my lips didn't physically plump.
Skyn ICELAND Plumping Lip Gels
kanyakumari from AZ
I have never heard of plumping lip gels before participating in this program. I was skeptical as to how it would work and found out that they definitely work. I have thin dry lips normally, but after using it for just 10 minutes, I could see that my lips looked fuller, moist and dewy. I would definitely buy this product again as it's very easy to use and is safe to stick on my lips as it's made of natural ingredients. Highly recommend!
ech89 from Convington,LA
I use this product as part of my nighttime maintenance. I liked the feel and appearance of my lips initially , however the effects are not long lasting. So for me this isn't a got to have item.
Shavon from Sacramento ca
Loved the way they made my lips feel..smoth and soft..look lil bigger..all around great product..
Not bad but nothing I'll buy
Noonoo from Florida
I like the idea of this product but I don't love it. First of all, it's weird to put a product that doesn't quite stay on your face - lips are all different sizes and shapes and I'd prefer an applicator to personally plump my lips like you see with plumping lip glosses.
I appreciate getting this as a sample and will pass my other sample to a friend I adore. I will confuse to try this company's products though this one just didn't do it for me.
I also really appreciate that this company is cruelty free, so regardless of this product, I completely support their commitment to embettering our communities.
No i would nit buy this product
Wendy from Southwest detroit Mich
Although it was fun and squishy, this product did not do as promised. It did not plump myvlips at all. It did however make them very soft.. Also the whole suction to your face thing didnt work either, it just kept falling off so i had to lay down while using it
