Our friend Tara has beautiful full lips to start, so for her Lucy & Co creates a strong pop in her natural color along with a tad more plumpness. Perfect for her already naturally beautiful look.
Everyone will have a little different result with some getting more volumization and others an amazing enhancement of their natural lip color truly unique to them. (Many achieve both!)
We’re not sure but sometimes we think there’s a little magic behind those Lucy Lips. 💋🤭 #lucylips#lovemyowncolor#naturallybeautiful
Last night’s skincare routine which would have posted last night but I experienced some loading issues with IG - not your problem, but here we go!➰
This routine brought to you by my new (and only second) Drunk Elephant purchase: Protini Polypeptide Cream. I purchased this cream with the sole purpose of using it post GloPRO microneedling. It has a healthy dose of amino acid proteins perfect for rebuilding collagen and elastin, repairing any damage (hello micro-needles!) and stimulating cell turnover. After doing a little research I feel like this is also a great product to try post microneedling because it is silicone, alcohol and fragrance free! I used 2 pumps of the Protini mixed with 2 drops of the Leegeehaam Propolis Ampoule and smoothed on my skin. Followed up with Heimish Bulgarian Rose eye patches that are water soluble so when I’m done I just toss them into the toilet bowl (funny I know) and they dissolve. Zero waste! Guys, I love these patches and they’re just under $20 on Amazon, others can cost upward of $50 or more. I highly recommend these as they are soothing, don’t sting on application and offer up hydration to the delicate eye area AND they’re pink so what’s cuter than that?! ➰ .
Skincare routine in order - this is typically what I do any night I use my GloPRO:
1. @mynuface mini device for toning, tightening and lifting skin. This under 5 minute micro-current treatment is a weekly essential & I use it (almost) 5 days a week and give my skin a rest on the weekends! Love this device (also a favorite of @itstiffanykay who if you don’t follow you should, she cracks me up and is so real/beautiful!). 2. @beautybio GloPRO - my glow-getter, I use her at least 3-4 days a week.
3. @drunkelephant Protini Polypeptide Cream (so far I adore you!). 4. @leegeehaam_global Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule.
5. @heimish_korea Bulgarian Rose Hydrogel Eye Patches

#GloPRO 's microneedling regeneration tool is a patented technology that stimulates skins regeneration response to induce micro-rejuvenation deep within the skin. As MicroTip pass over the skin, the rejuvenation process begins immediately. Red LED light function and VibroTactile Stimulation work together to enhance regenerative skin. The result is a visibly firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. 💁♀️ #techofbeauty

We know we’ve only got your lips covered, but we know you’ve got the rest! 💋🌟 #lucybeautiful#shineon
I wanted to update you all on the @beautybio #gloPRO microneedling regeneration tool for the lips that I purchased. As a reminder, the tool with the face and eye editions (currently @nordstrom for $269) was part of the #anniversarysale for $169 and I purchased the lip tool separately for $35.
I’m tracking the results on the areas around my eyes (crow‘s feet, elevens) and nasolabial fold (marionette lines) and will update probably at 4 weeks unless I see a shocking difference before then.
But friends. THE LIPS. I told you the difference was immediately noticeable but didn’t get pics, so last night and this morning I did!
Routine: after showering I did the rest of my face, and then my lips as my serums (@sundayriley #LunaNightOil & @deciem #NIOD#MMHC ) sank in. After using the device I put on a decent layer of #lucaspapaw ointment, then @laneige_us #lipsleepingmask just before sleep. Once again, I could feel each absorbing much better than usual!
Look at this morning. I know the natural daylight affects the color but the lines are less pronounced and my lips are much softer. I also think they’re a bit plumper, and want to find a vitamin-rich plumping lip serum to try after using the gloPRO tool. Anyone have one they love? I plan to research the @hourglasscosmetics one since I love their other makeup products.
Does anyone else have microneedling experience? I know some biz-type accounts try to artificially drum up engagement but I am sincerely curious, so please lmk!
Night notes ➰
I’m all in w/ my @beautybio GloPRO microneedling device. I will admit at first I thought I was in over my head - pricking myself w/ a roller covered in tiny needles, what if I bleed?! How painful is it going to be?! Am I insane?! After a few weeks use I can’t imagine going w/out it! ➰ So what does it feel like? I admit the first time I used it I went hard, super aggressive & my face felt a little tender but I gradually found the Goldilocks of pressure needed when rolling my face & now I have no anxiety + totally look forward to using it (about every other night). At worst it feels like tiny pin pricks, at best like a really harsh facial scrub but to anyone who has been lasered or waxed I think you can handle this w/ the same amount of ease. ➰
And the why? By creating micro-tears in the skin it stimulates the dermis to produce new collagen & regenerate new skin cells thus helping w/ reducing fine lines, wrinkles & pores. Overall I’ve noticed a plumpness & glow to my skin like never before & I’m all about the glow. Ultimately, after using the device which takes less than a minute, your skin is opened up which allows it to absorb the serums and products you use on a deeper level, providing better results. With that said, I’m not featuring which serums or night creams I’m using post microneedling here because I’m still trying a few things out to decide what works best. I will say on nights I use my GloPRO I skip vitamin C, E or A serums, any type of acid serums or toners as well as face oil so I don’t further inflame or irritate my skin or clog my pores. **Super important to make sure to sanitize the needle heads after every use with alcohol and to never use on open cysts or active acne so as not to spread bacteria on your face. ➰

It finally came in, my @glopro_tool from the @nordstrom sale! I can’t wait to try it out! I’ve heard a lot about micro-needling from a co-worker to my dermatologist. I thought I’d try it and if I like it, I’ll get it done professionally by a dermatologist. It’s supposed to help with hyper pigmentation left from old acne scars, scars from acne, and wrinkles. #nordstromsale#glopro#microneedling

Last night I tried out the @beautybio Glo Pro microneedling device that I shared yesterday & so far I love it. It didn’t hurt at all. It wasn’t even uncomfortable for me, but I may have a bit of a higher pain tolerance than most.
Pic 1: before, just a bit of toner spritzed onto freshly cleansed skin.
2: No bc Insta ate this photo 😭 [white lines showed roughly where I used the device]
3: packaging of the colloidal silver eye patches included in the set.
4: patches on + serum & moisturizer* applied.
The directions said to expect some redness immediately after use but I don’t see much! And I did zero edits to the face photos.
A lot of the reviews from people said they felt like their serums soaked in better & were more effective. I applied my serums within 2 minutes per directions but they seemed to soak in at the usual pace. Effectiveness will take time, I assume.
I forgot to take a post-patches pic, but I didn’t see a noticeable difference around my eyes yet. I assume that’s to be expected for fine lines since I don’t tend to have issues with under eye puffiness which would be more immediately evident. Also, the packaging wasn’t my fave; the patches stuck to the foil instead of their tray & a lot of liquid spilled trying to remove them.
Where I did notice a big difference is my lips. I put on some of my beloved Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. Normally that doesn’t soak in until the next morning, but within an hour I layered some of the @Laneige lip mask over the top. My lips also felt a bit more plump than usual.
Today, oh my word, my lips feel so soft & hydrated. I tried to get a photo but without a good before for comparison it wasn’t helpful. I’ll wait a week on the lips & try again!
So far, this is a keeper. I followed directions & disinfected with alcohol; #protip : make sure you use 70% alcohol. I know higher seems better, but 70% is best at breaking down the cellular walls of bacteria.
More results in a week or two!
Cleanser: Sonia Roselli Beauty Japanese Cleansing Oil
Toner: Saturday Skin Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist

Saturday night skincare featuring my only purchases from the #nsale . I was really good this year, y’all. (And kind of burnt out on the whole ruckus surrounding the sale, if I’m being honest.) But I am super happy with the two items I decided to get! Go watch my insta stories to see how I use them (and probably get a good laugh in at my awkwardness). Haha! 💗
