Review: This is the first lip conditioner I’ve ever tried and I like how it locks in moisture and protects my peckers from the elements to help slow down the ageing process, while gradually reversing existing damage and softening any obvious lines over time. Even though my lips don’t ‘feel’ particularly hydrated after application like they do with most balms, I do know it’s performing, simply by seeing the transformation of my lips. Prior to starting this trial, I was practically addicted to lip balms, forever slathering them on my lips, day and night, to treat unsightly roughness. But no amount of balm has ever gotten my lips looking as good as they are since I started using the BioElixia Fine Line Lip Serum. I am impressed with the results I’ve achieved after nearly a month and although the price tag is a bit steep, I would still consider making it a permanent addition to my beauty regime. Unfortunately, because the pump expels an excess of product, I imagine it’s going to run out a lot sooner than it should, meaning the inconvenient packaging is not very cost effective, so I doubt I would repurchase it unless packaging changes are made. Regardless of the cons, I would definitely recommend this serum to anyone who needs a truly effective treatment that will rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of their lips. Pucker up and kiss those peeling, flaking, cracking, dry, chapped lips goodbye and give them the attention they deserve. Show off a plumper, healthier, more youthful smile.

The weightless formula is white in colour and has a creamy, fluid-like consistency similar to a lotion, with a smooth, velvety texture. It claims to be unscented, yet it does have a very faint fragrance that is typical of non-perfumed skin care. Nevertheless I don’t consider it offensive and it doesn’t linger. I only need a teeny weeny amount of serum to massage over my lips and on the surrounding skin of my lip contour. I admit, at first it felt bizarre putting a moisturising cream similar to that of a body or face cream straight on my lips, as I’ve previously only used balm-type products, but the good thing is that it’s fast absorbing and there is no residue at all. In fact, it completely disappears leaving my smackers feeling bare and natural, rather than leaving a greasy film. For me the indication that this treatment was actually working became noticeable after a week of using it religiously, twice a day. The condition of my lips improved immensely, and gone are my usual, parched, scaly (often peeling) lips that displayed evident cracks on their surface. Instead my pout is soft, supple and silky smooth. It makes a great makeup base too, because Fine Line Lip Serum primes and nourishes my lips, so they emerge polished and my lipstick stays put without feathering and remains flawless for longer. Ideally, it provides a revitalising ‘quick-fix’ if my kissers are dehydrated and need an extra moisture boost during the day too.

BioElixia Fine Line Lip Serum comes in a stylish pump-action metal canister, boasting the easy to identify silver and bold magenta colour scheme that is consistent throughout the entire range, giving me the impression that it’s a high quality brand. The ergonomic, airless packaging is hygienic and designed to block out oxygen and protect the inner contents, so the natural, preservative-free formulation can maintain its purity and last longer. The biggest downfall of this treatment, however, is related to the dispenser, which pumps out too much serum for a single application, despite constantly trying to control the flow. I only need half the pumped amount and there’s no way to return the leftovers to the tube, other than scraping it into the inside of the lid to use later; a step that totally defeats the purpose of better hygiene in the first place. But, it’s either that or wasting the product, and I am not one for squandering beauty products, especially when you're looking at $50 for a lip product.
