If you need a product that helps you to plump up your lips because they have faded after a few years of environmental damage or simply because they are starting to look sparse, then you might be considering the SkinMedica HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System. It is a two part system that smooths out the lips, getting rid of unwanted wrinkles, and then plumps the lips so that they are more defined and fuller.

The collection of ingredients in this product basically serves to fill the skin cells on the lips with more volume using various proteins from plants and microorganisms. These ingredients also increase blood flow to the lips which cause them to swell and give that plumper look. The ingredients in the plumper also trap moisture within the lips so that the effect lasts for a number of hours.
SkinMedica HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System can be applied when needed. The longest effect comes from applying it three times during the day it is needed. To use the product, simply apply it over the lip area staying within the natural lip line. It can be used between cosmetic treatments but the manufacturer does not mention whether it can be applied with makeup over it.
The two components of the system together cost $68 without shipping or taxes. Each tube contains 0.05 oz of the respective product. This price is a little bit high and the manufacturer does not offer discounts for buying in bulk or for subscribing to receive the product regularly. This means that the product is even more expensive to use over the long term compared to manufacturers who do offer discounts on several months supply packages.
We could not find any sort of guarantee or returns policy offered by this manufacturer. This means that customers might be at risk when they buy this expensive product because if it does not work then they would have lost out on money. When manufacturers do not offer a guarantee that is also a sign that they are not completely confident that the product will work because they are unwilling to take the risk and to lose money if that is the case.
SkinMedica HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System Review – Conclusion
This product contains a variety of ingredients, some of which are very well researched for filling out sparse lips and plumping them up. The directions for use are also quite clear, but they do have a slight ambiguity.
The product is very costly and this is not understandable given the lack of a guarantee. When customer spend that amount of money they want to know that the product will work and that they would be protected if the product does not work. This is not the case for this product.
