I was a recent lucky winner of Newcastle Skin Clinic’s Valentine’s Day Instagram competition and my prize was a Hydrafacial Lip Perk! As many readers know, I have a slight addiction to lipstick, so a treatment that boosts hydration and plumps the lips spoke to me and I couldn’t wait to get booked in! So let me take you along with me.
Newcastle Skin Clinic
First things first, let’s chat venue. Newcastle Skin Clinic, based just past the Metrocentre, is an award-winning aesthetics clinic.

Hydrafacial Lip Perk
The Hydrafacial Lip Perk is a quick and painless treatment that uses a roller flex technology to gently exfoliate and remove impurities from the skin while hydrating at the same time.
The Hydrafacial Lip Revitalizing Serum is delivered to your lips via a wand providing instant plumping, hydrating and a great boost in antioxidants.
What’s more, you get to take the remainder of the serum away to continue to use at home.
Hydrafacial Lip Revitalizing Serum Benefits:
- Lightly plumps lips
- Gently exfoliates to smooth lips
- Hydrates lips
- Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: Enhances the appearance of dry/damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness
- Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract: Helps restore volume and re-plumps lips
- Vitamins A, C, E: Helps increase hydration level, and provide antioxidant properties
Newcastle Skin Clinic was easy to find and there is plenty of parking available. The space is calming and the staff welcoming.
I had my consultation with Lusia and felt completely at ease. The Lip Perk was a quick and completely pain-free treatment, if anything, the vacuum sensation just feels a little strange! The device is handheld and passed over your lips a small number of times.
I was quite impressed with the immediate results! I have particularly dry lips and try to hydrate them as much as possible, so it was really nice to have such an impactful hit of hydration. There was also a nice, natural plumping effect which I could both see in the lessening of fine lip lines and feel with the hydrated, plumped finish. The results have definitely lasted as well, which I didn’t expect.
I’m loving having the serum to use at home, it’s wonderfully hydrating, which is particularly great at this time of year. It’s also really soothing and sinks in quickly so can be applied first thing before any lipstick as well as at night.
I think it’s a perfect treatment if you feel you need a little perk or have a special event and results can last up to four weeks! The price is £49.00 or £39.00 as an add on to another treatment.
