Review

Results you may expect from using Clinique All About Lips:

Based on the ingredient analysis by CreamScan, these are the key benefits you can expect from using Clinique All About Lips:

  • Significant moisturizing. It has a moisturizing rating of 6.8 out of 10.
  • Antioxidant protection.

How moisturizing is it?

Highly moisturizing: Clinique All About Lips has a moisturizing rating of 6.8 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Significantly more occlusive. It has a moderate humectancy of 4.9 out of 10 and a very high occlusivity of 8.8 out of 10, primarily due to the significant content of Dimethicone (est. ≈9.0%) and Phenyl Trimethicone (est. ≈3.0%).

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the moisturizing rating calculation.

Anti-wrinkle efficacy

According to CreamScan analysis, Clinique All About Lips has a zero anti-wrinkle rating.

It contains some ingredients marketed as effective in reducing wrinkles, specifically Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, and Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract. However, the studies supporting the anti-wrinkle claims of these ingredients provide insufficient evidence of efficacy according to CreamScan Research Evaluation Standards. Therefore, these ingredients do not generate the anti-wrinkle rating.

Please refer to the Ratings section below for details of the anti-wrinkle rating calculation.

Antioxidant benefits

We estimate that Clinique All About Lips is rich (> 3%) in antioxidants, specifically Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (est. ≈1.5%), Tocopheryl Acetate (est. ≈0.3%), Centella Asiatica Extract (est. ≈0.3%), and others.

A key benefit of antioxidants is their ability to reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals and therefore prevent accelerated skin aging. Studies also show that antioxidants can protect against environmental damage such as UV radiation and pollution, and help reduce inflammation and skin redness.

Ingredients explained

Water
Est. %60
Function
Origin
The most used ingredient in skincare. Its concentration defines the product texture: rich creams may have about 50% of water while a light jelly about 90%. Water doesn’t moisturize the skin by itself and is used in skincare as a solvent for other ingredients.
Dimethicone
Est. %9
Function
Origin
The most common silicone in skincare. It forms a silky, smooth film on the skin’s surface and can help to prevent water loss. It also aids in wound healing and can treat and soften scars. Dimethicone is considered to be very safe for use.
Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer
Est. %6
Function
Origin

Polysilicone-11
Est. %4
Function
Origin
A synthetic rubber-like substance of the silicone family that has no color or distinct scent. These are large molecules that cannot penetrate the skin but instead create a thin silky film on the skin's surface.
Phenyl Trimethicone
Est. %3
Function
Origin
A silicone fluid that is used as an occlusive moisturizer. It applies smoothly to the skin and reduces the tack associated with organic oils.
Caprylyl Methicone
Est. %2.5
Function
Origin
A liquid silicone with occlusive moisturizing properties. Being compatible with natural oils is a challenge for most silicones, but caprylyl methicone plays well with all types of oils.
Neopentyl Glycol Diisostearate
Est. %2
Function
Origin

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
Est. %1.5
Function
Origin
An antioxidant green tea extract. In the deeper layers, it slows down the destruction of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid – thus delaying the signs of aging. It also acts as an anti-acne, soothing, moisturizing, and emollient ingredient.
Butylene Glycol
Est. %1.3
Function
Origin
A clear, colorless liquid humectant that draws moisture to the skin. The humectancy of butylene glycol, owed to its two hydroxyl groups, is quite considerable, although not as powerful as glycerin, which contains three hydroxyl groups.
Microcrystalline Wax
Est. %1
Function
Origin
A white, highly purified, solid substance consisting of petroleum hydrocarbons. It is used in skincare as a strong occlusive and emollient similar to Petrolatum, and also as a formula helper that thickens and stabilizes the product.

Function
Origin
A silicone-based powerful emulsifier that helps to create lightweight and pleasant feeling lotions and creams.
Tocopheryl Acetate

Function
Origin
An antioxidant derivative of tocopherol (vitamin E). It helps to protect cells from free radicals and UV damage through the conversion to active vitamin E in the skin. It is more stable than tocopherol.
Salicylic Acid
Est. %0.3
Function
Origin
This effective peeling and anti-inflammatory BHA is used as an anti-acne agent and works by breaking down the junctions between dead skin cells. This results in the peeling of dead skin and the unclogging of pores.
Centella Asiatica Extract
Est. %0.3
Function
Origin
An extract from the leaves of the Gotu kola. It is used in skincare for its antioxidant, wound healing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. It increases the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin.
