A self-confessed lip connoisseur has created a five-step skincare regime for your pout that promises a natural needle-free alternative to injectables.
Brooke Morgan, who lives in Melbourne, launched +Lip Dr in September after failing to find any beauty products on the market that focused solely on nourishing the mouth.
The range includes an exfoliator ($41.95), gel masks ($43.95 for five), a moisturiser (47.95), ‘volumiser’ ($43.95) and a lip conditioner ($25.95), which are to be applied one after the other to achieve glossy, kissable lips.

‘Some women are “brow girls” but it was my lips that I always liked to enhance so, in turn, I sought lip care products to take care of them but before +Lip Dr there weren’t any lip skincare products to treat and care for the lips and surrounding lip area,’ Ms Morgan told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Of an evening I would stand in my bathroom and I would have a range of skincare products designed to target specific areas or concerns but for my lips – other than a sugar lip scrub or lip balm – there weren’t other lip care products in the market. I was using exfoliants, serums, moisturisers and masks on my face but for our lips, nothing else existed.’
The exfoliator, which is step one, contains lime pearl and papaya extract to remove any build-up of dead skin, while the ingredient Renovhyal helps boost collagen and hydration.

The masks, which are to be applied next, soften fine lines and wrinkles, while the moisturiser includes shea butter and rosehip oil to prime the lips.
The volumiser is the powerhouse of the pack and stimulates collagen and other naturally-occurring moisture-boosters like hyaluronic acid for added volume, while the conditioner soothes a dry and chapped pout.
Ms Morgan spent four years formulating her own products to fill that gap in the industry, while moving away from a corporate job she felt was no longer fulfilling her.
Why is the skin on your lips different to the rest of your face?
Just like the skin anywhere else on your face or body, your lips need to be taken care of in order to get and keep them smooth, hydrated and nourished.
The skin composition of the lips is different to the skin on the rest of your face, lips are thinner and more delicate.
The skin on your face can be up to 16 cell layers thick but the skin on your lips is only three to five layers thick.
This is why our lips have a pinkish/red hue as the blood vessels are more apparent.
The skin on our lips also lacks sebaceous glands which provide moisture to the skin, therefore they do not make sebum and because of this your lips are more likely to get and feel dry and chapped.
Our lips also don’t have pores which means there are no sweat or oil glands to keep the skin hydrated.
The skin on our lips does not contain the upper layer of epidermis called the stratum corneum that serves a protective function and prevents dehydration and combats UV radiation.
Alongside raising her daughter the entrepreneur took the time to research how she could incorporate the plump-making abilities of dermal fillers in her skincare, which is why it includes hyaluronic acid.
‘It’s early days for +Lip Dr but we are loving seeing our range being so well received by customers and influencers. The feedback and glowing reviews have been really incredible,’ she said.
A number of Australian influencers – including Kiera Maguire, Abby Gilmore and Ruby Tuesday Matthews – have all enjoyed the products since launch, with each praising how voluptuous their lips look after application.
