THORNHILL, ON, Jan. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - According to a new survey, Canadians are a pretty kissable bunch, with 80% of respondents rating the last person they smooched as "very or somewhat kissable."1 Launched just in time for Valentine's Day, the Emervel® Kissability Report asked Canadians over the age of 18 about their preferences and what makes for truly kissable lips.
Findings show that Canadians place a high value on a good smooch, with one in five (20%) under age 45 reporting they've actually ended a potential relationship because the person was a bad kisser, whereas those in a relationship said they lock lips with their partner about three times each day.
So what are Canadians looking for in an ideal kiss? Two-thirds (64%) respectively agreed that their favourite is gentle, with eyes closed. Half said they prefer a long kiss, and men and women were equally divided in their preference for tongue, with 41% of men reporting they want tongue, and 42% of women saying their preferred kiss is without.
Of the women surveyed, about one in five women (19%) said they feel their lips aren't as kissable as they'd like, with softer lips being the top thing they would change, followed by fuller lips.1
Canadians seeking a more kissable pucker have a new option available specifically created for the face's most dynamic feature. EMERVEL® Lips is the latest filler tailor-made to specifically fit sensitive lip tissue, offering soft, sensuous movement that looks natural and maintains lip shape over time.2 Designed to enhance, balance and redefine lips, it adds subtle plumpness and softness, and gently fills out wrinkles and contours.2
The Name on Everyone's Lips
According to dermatologist Dr. Lisa Kellett, "EMERVEL Lips helps achieve a balanced and harmonious look, and, combined with other products in the EMERVEL line, can give the face a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Patients are very satisfied with the natural-looking and long-lasting results."
EMERVEL Lips is now available in clinics across the country. To check their own kissability, interested patients can visit www.naturallyemervel.ca, pull out their lipstick and download a Kiss Card to see if their lips could be enhanced with more fullness or definition. The website also shows real results, and qualified EMERVEL Lips practitioners across Canada. Patients should speak with a doctor about whether EMERVEL Lips is right for them.

1 Emervel® Kissability Report, 2015. This survey was conducted via telephone (landline and cell) within Canada by Harris Poll on behalf of Galderma Canada from Dec. 3 to Dec. 10, 2015, among 1,004 Canadians over the age of 18. While data were weighted by age and gender within region to be representative of the Canadian adult population, Harris Poll avoids the reporting margin of error due to multiple possible sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate.
