Nobody has to know. The Lip Clear® Invisible Cold Sore Bandage covers your sore and protects it from irritants while it heals. You can hide a cold sore by covering the bandage with lip gloss and makeup. The only thing you'll see is how easy it was to cover up!
The Lip Clear Cold Sore Bandage is the only cold sore patch that uses hydrocolloid technology to maintain skin moisture necessary for optimal comfort and relief. It's made from a semi-transparent material so it blends in with your lip color. It's easy to apply, will stay on for hours and can help protect the cold sore from further injury or infection while it heals. They are gentle on the skin, protect against scarring, and support the body's natural cleansing mechanism.
Soothes & Relieves:
The hydrocolloid coldsore bandage adheres to the lip, covering exposed nerve endings thereby providing soothing relief and physical protection from bacteria and contaminants. The cold sore patch is latex-free to help prevent irritation.
Stop Contagious Spread:
Covering a cold sore with our bandage can prevent the contagious cold sore virus from spreading to others through direct contact or contact with items you use such as towels, silverware, straws, etc.
Prevents Irritating or Contaminating Your Cold Sore
The cold sore patch bandage prevents you from touching the open sore with your lips, tongue or fingers and irritating or contaminating the sore.
Tip! The Lip Clear Invisible Bandage can be used alone or in conjunction with Lip Clear Lysine+ ointment to treat the cold sore. Apply the ointment directly to the sore as directed. Wait 30 minutes. Then apply the bandage. Lip Clear Lysine+ ointment has been clinically shown to cut cold sore healing time in half.
How to hide a cold sore with makeup
If you'd like to watch the instructional video it follows these instructions.
Putting makeup on an exposed cold sore, especially when it's a scab, is difficult and can be unhealthy. The Lip Clear bandage creates a clean hygienic surface and can hide the sore when used with makeup.
The first step is to put the bandage over the cold sore - make sure you follow the directions above. And before you begin applying makeup, wash your hands.
1. Apply a cover up / base foundation.
2. Pat or brush in powder.
3. Gently apply lip gloss. That's it!
However, if you want to set the color, apply a single layer of tissue over the area - and gently brush and press the loose powder in. Then remove the tissue and apply another layer of lip color.
Kelly shows how the Lip Clear Invisible Cold Sore Bandage can help you hide a cold sore using makeup.
Apply at the first sign of cold sore symptoms (tingling, itching or pain).
1) Wash the infected area with soap and water and pat dry.
2) Tear plastic release liner along perforation.
3) Remove bandage from liner. Apply to cold sore.
4) Mold bandage to cold sore by gently smoothing with finger.
Each bandage lasts for hours. There is no need to remove or change the bandage as long as it stays on. When the bandage starts to peel off, replace it with a new bandage. If you need to remove the bandage, stretch it gently along the skin instead of pulling it away.
What are Cold Sores?
Coldsores are blisters on the mouth or lips caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus 1. They are small, clear, filled with fluid. HSV1 is transmitted by contact, and it is estimated that as many as 80% of Americans are HSV1 positive. For many, however, the virus remains dormant and never causes symptoms.
Are Cold Sores Contagious?
Yes! Avoid kissing or sharing toothbrushes, towels and utensils while the sore is active. The Lip Clear Cold Sore Bandage may protect yourself and others from directly contacting the sore.
Can Children use the Lip Clear Patch?
Yes. There are no age restrictions on use.
Can the Lip Clear Cold Sore Patch be used on cold sores that are not on the lip?
Yes. It can be used on any cold sore.
Can I eat and drink while the patch is on?
Yes. In fact, the bandage will protect your cold sore from irritation while you eat or drink.
