Wasabi lips - here's what you need to know before trying this trend

We are JUST as terrified as you.

Plump lips... although we'd like to say we're not interested those giant juicy smackers have us slightly intrigued.




We can't quite get our heads around the injection aspect (NO THANKS), so what else can we do? There are products on the market that claim to plump up those lips naturally, yes they give us a little tingle, but we're not convinced.

Farah Dhukai is fast becoming our most trusted beauty guru, she brought us the turmeric teeth whitening trick that ACTUALLY WORKS and a while back she posted this wasabi lip plumping trick, then everyone lost their minds.

?NATURAL LIP FILLERS - get SOFT, PLUMP, FULL, lips without needles or sucking on cups or objects ??As you may have noticed, I have VERY wrinkly lips and its cold AF in Toronto so now theyre super dry too. Wrinkly + Dry = worst combination ever!! SOOO.. THIS one trick is a great way to get plump lips that look like youve had fillers - theyll be extremely soft, wrinkles will be filled in, theyll have a natural pink color, and theyll be so plump ppl will think youve had them done? all you need is: ✅WASABI! - $4 for a tube at the grocery store or you can keep the leftovers from sushi dates ? ?take a tiny amount and rub it all over your lips ⏰leave on for NO MORE THAN 1 minute wipe off with a damp cloth or baby wipe ?moisturize IMMEDIATELY! I used my @farsalicare Rose Gold Elixir ✨- you can use whatever you prefer to moisturize your lips, the key is to make sure to moisturize! there you have ittttttt .. pillow soft lips! you can apply a lip color on top if youd like but i personally like how it looks with a plump natural pink color the plumpiness lasts a whole day for me - but everyone is different so results will vary from person to person. The wasabi does sting but it's less than your traditional lip plumper and the effects last longer ? ?don't forget to share this video with a friend who wants a lil plump job and help a sis outtttt and like this video ??

We don't understand how her lips are not burning. Or how she's not screaming, we've all tried wasabi...



Cue all sorts of people trying this craze online with some pretty terrifying results, let's be honest this has to be safer than that weird cup thing people were sucking on for a while.

Since the lip hack was posted a rake of dermatologists have slammed it saying it's dangerous and could cause an allergic reaction.

Here's what we think is important to remember before trying it out.

  • DO a patch test - put a tiny amount on and just see what happens, leave it for a few hours.
  • DO NOT leave it on for a full minute the first time round - if you can more power to you, we couldn't! If it's burning too much, wipe it off.
  • DO NOT try this if you have chapped or sore lips, seriously that s**t will BURN, wait until your lips are in good condition.
  • DO remember that wasabi is a natural irritant on the skin, it's supposed to tingle and burn slightly that's the whole point, if your lips look plumper it's because they're swollen from the reaction
  • DO NOT forget that you're pretty perfect the way you are, the wasabi lip thing is only temporary and the plumpness will fade away.

We prefer it on a tuna roll anyway.
