I think, because of the richness and hydrating qualities of this cream, that it would be worth a try. When I first started using it, I used the cream on my eyes as directed. For my mouth, however, I used it well above the liplines (and below), on the lips, and rubbed it totally in. Not just on the face part, but really, really well on the mouth as well. I used it 3-5 times per day, whenever they felt the least bit dry, plus really well at night before going to bed. Now I only need to use it once in the a.m. and really well at bedtime. I am 62 yrs old and love the stuff. Hope you do too!

Don't invest in a mineral oil based product for anything!!! Look for plant-based oils, and mild AHA/BHA's to re-texture and smooth your skin. I have been trained in aesthetics since the 90's. Just my opinion.
I do not think this product worked at all for the lines around the mouth. Try a lifting and firming cream or a serum. Lancôme makes excellent products and I have been using their products for many, many years.

I truly don't think it would be strong enough for that, especially if the lines are already there. It is probably better as a preventative cream..

I've never smoked, however, 20 years of drinking soft drinks through a straw left me with deep smoker's lines as I hit my 40's. The instructions state to apply the cream to the skin around the lip, but I've always applied it directly to the lips and around the lips. The cream eventually plumped the lips and the skin around the lips, pulling out the wrinkles by approximately 80 percent.
If I stop using the product, the lines return and I lose lip volume after about two weeks. Therefore, I apply the cream every night before bed. That said, it takes me nearly a year to use a full tube of Hope in a Tube Eye and Lip cream.
I don't think it will do much in the lip area. The eye area is thinner skin and this cream works well there. The lip area is thicker and needs a heavier cream.
