Sensai Kanebo Total Lip Treatment : Yes or no?  
I can't decide whether to give Sensai Kanebo Cellular Performance Total Lip Treatment a huge thumbs-up, a qualified "may not know for sure yet," or a disappointed thumbs down.

I suspect if it didn't cost so much, the decision would be an easier one. It definitely makes my lips fuller, smoother and even a little darker, which is kind of nice. But for this much money -- $60 -- I thought it would also quickly eliminate the crusty dry skin ridge that I'm constantly battling on my lower lip.

I like and look good in darker lipsticks, but you can't wear them if your lips are cracked. I'd heard raves from trusted sources about this stuff, so I cracked out the big bucks and bought it.

Combined with my new favorite lipstick, my lips are clearly softer and, had I never heard a word of hype about this product and not known how expensive it was, I might be raving about it here. Nothing has ever made my lips look and feel better than this combination.

It's just that I expected more.

About the dry skin on your lips, have you ever tried brushing them with your toothbrush when you brush your teeth? I know it sounds crazy, but it's helped when it happened to me, and I use Eucerin cream on them at night to help it keep from coming back.

No! Wow, what an idea! I've been using a scrub on them, but that wasn't making much difference. I'll try the toothbrush tonight. Thank you!

Toothbrush is good. If that solves the dry skin, will you like this product more? I'm not keen on expensive skincare (but I'll spring for makeup).

BTW, lovely Rita icon. :)

Just maybe be careful of getting toothpaste on your lips - some people react to it and get irritation around the mouth.
