If you have fine lines and wrinkles that could use a boost, plumping products just could be your saving grace. Specially formulated for your face, neck, lips, and more, these beauty rescuers will help rejuvenate skin and transform worn, tired-looking skin so it glows. Everyone needs a plumping product (or two, or three) in their skincare arsenal—here are a few to get started with. —Jennifer Cox
The REN Clean Skincare ($70, available through Sephora Canada) is a smoothing essence that boosts the benefits of skincare and protects the skin’s barrier, all the while deeply hydrating for visibly plumper skin. It contains bio-ferment as well as hyaluronic and polyglutamic acids to hydrate for smoother skin and reinforce the moisture barrier, while marrubium extract helps protect skin against pollution. It’s dermatologist-tested and approved, and it’s suitable for all skin types
Beautycounter’s Clean Swipe Hyaluronic Lip Balm ($29) provides effective moisturizing benefits for a healthy-looking pout. It’s supercharged with skin-care ingredients like hyaluronic acid, jojoba seed, and avocado seed oils, plus a blend of mango and murumuru seed butters—this nourishing formula is all kinds of creamy and conditioning, melting into lips for buttery soft comfort that never feels greasy. It’s available in four sheer shades.
Plump & Go lip balm from Jouviance ($29, available in April) is a vegan balm that helps smooth, nourish, and plump up lips. It’s not only moisturizing but it also provides immediate and long-term anti-aging action, so you’ll have fuller, healthier lips from its first use and long afterwards. It will improve lip texture, blur vertical lines, and give your lipstick a chance to really shine through.
Like a beauty superhero, there’s the Yves Rocher Supercharged Plumping Serum ($40), whose plumping effects continuously reveal themselves as long as you use it. This product is a result of the company reinventing Ice Plant extract to transfer its exceptional and antiaging powers to the skin. It’s a formula that came about after 12 years of research and three patents—it was worth the wait!
You’re going to love Herbivore’s Cloud Jelly Pink Plumping Hydration Serum ($48). It’s a non-sticky, hyaluronic acid-alternative serum that helps dry, dehydrated skin bounce back. Tremella mushroom, a hyaluronic acid alternative, and vegan collagen will leave your skin feeling hydrated and plump. Works well on all skin types, even sensitive skin.
