Want plump, hydrated and glossy lips without having to undergo invasive cometic procedures, or experience that uncomfortable burning sensation? Sounds like a dream! However, you can make yours a reality with our range of nourishing peptide lip treatments.

This year, brands are developing innovative, science-backed lip solutions that are infused with peptides – a hero ingredient for achieving fuller-looking lips. Peptide lip treatments are increasing in popularity, as peptides help to promote collagen and elastin production while working to plump your pout over time without irritation.

Looking for the best peptide lip balms on the market? We have rounded up our latest favourites that you need in your lip-loving collection!

Ole Henriksen Pout Preserve Peptide Lip Treatment

Surge your lips with moisture using the Ole Henriksen Pout Preserve Peptide Lip Treatment for a juicy-looking pout! This lip balm boasts a pout-perfecting cocktail of peptides that work to promote a plumper appearance, whilst kokum butter helps to reduce the look and feel of dryness for your smoothest lips to date.

Why We Love It:

“If there’s ever a balm that’ll convert you into appreciating the power of peptides – this is it! This lip treatment is loaded with the savvy skincare ingredient, alongside kokum butter for extra nourishment. I have (and love!) shade ‘Strawberry Sorbet’, which combines the perfect hint of pink for everyday while helping to keep my lips looking plump and feeling hydrated.” – Penny, beauty writer.

Why We Love It:

“Since using this peptide treatment, I have noticed that my lips look and feel fuller, which I love as I am achieving a plumped pout effect without any tingling sensations or discomfort, which I usually find with other plumping beaty products! This plumping treatment not only works to increase fullness overtime but also nourishes the skin barrier for healthier-looking lips. I love using this lip balm over a lip liner for a glossy finish and hydrated feel!” – Tara, beauty writer.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have been interested in all things beauty as I used to watch my mum do her makeup and hair all the time and then I would try and use her products! I now love finding the best beauty buys out there and then recommending them to my friends and family to find out there experience with using them. To me the beauty industry has no limits, you can use different products or even just one product to create a variety of looks and through using different tools it can be made into an experience tailored to you. For me, perfecting my base is my fave thing to do and play around with, as I like it to last me all day whilst still looking flawless! So a handful of high quality products that I can rely on to achieve my natural yet airbrushed effect daily look is an essential as it gives me the confidence to be bold. As I am always trying and testing out new foundations, concealers, powders, primers and setting sprays I feel like I have a handle on the best makeup products out there. I am an advocate in using products that make you feel FANTASTIC as well as LOOKING FANTASTIC! I am currently loving the NARS Afterglow Lip Balm in the shade 'Orgasm' as it adds the perfect sheen of colour onto my lips whilst also moisturising them!
