Winter is probably one of the harshest seasons for my lips. They are always dry and crack easily, making it hard to wear lipstick. I did find a few things that keep my lips from looking like I’ve just risen from the dead, and I thought I’d share them with all of you!
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub– $9.95
When I was on the hunt for good lip scrubs, this was the one I kept hearing about. And I love it. It comes in other flavors such as mint julep, and buttered popcorn, but I am like a small child sometimes, so I had to have the bubblegum flavor! And, because it’s from Lush, it’s perfectly ok if you lick some of it off of your lips. It really does work too.
I got this product in a kit over Christmas, and it’s become something that stays in my bag. It’s a smooth product that you dispense onto your finger and then apply to your lips, and it creates a barrier against the elements. I put it on my lips before I sleep at night to prevent them from drying out while I’m sleeping, and after meals before I reapply my lip balm/lip gloss, etc..
This stuff is like crack for your lips. I seriously don’t know how I go through this stuff so fast, but I do. It’s the perfect balm to put on right before any color, and it really does add an additional layer of protection against the wind and cold.
This is a really high quality lip gloss that doesn’t feel sticky, yet provides a good amount of color without drying out your lips. I decided to get a vibrant pink color because I wanted to lighten up my typical dark and neutral winter wardrobe. I really do love this gloss and I’m considering getting a different color option for spring!
