Velvety Red


DHC lippy and anti-wrinkle patches

September 18, 2014



I’ve been asked to trial two more DHC products and as always, the quality is not disappointing.

First product I received was the Velvety Red Premium lipstick GE. I have to say I expected it to be a bit more red, as I like bright red lipstick but the quality completely compensated the colour being a bit blander than I would normally wear. It’s no exaggeration when it says on their website that it has ‘revitalising ingredients’ – it has to be the smoothest lipstick I’ve ever used! My lips felt hydrated and smooth all the time, something doesn’t always happen, even with some more expensive products. Nothing worse than having cracked lips caked with lipstick… I would also note the quality of the packaging – as you can see, the metallic case is is decorated and has a somewhat more luxurious feel than a regular plastic case would have. Not bad for a product in this price range. I just checked the and it’s also on sale, so you get an absolute bargain, as it’s great value for the money.


The second product is less exciting in terms of looks but not in terms of effectiveness. I’m talking about the Revitalizing Moisture Strips, designed to be applied around your mouth area, to help fight dryness that causes those pesky lines and wrinkles. The strips are made of polymer gel and are infused with¬†antioxidant-rich olive leaf extract, brightening alpha-arbutin and mulberry. Check the link for a full list of ingredients. I’ve been using them every now and then over the last few weeks and they feel extremely comfortable on, and very fresh. Apply after your cleansing regime and you’ll see how pleasant it feels. Now that I am becoming a lady of a certain age, these things come in very handy!

Have you tried any of these products before?
