Welcome to the cold winter months! I live in NJ and if any of you have the kind of weather we have here, you totally know what I am talking about! HELLO CRACKED, DRY LIPS! Ugh! I love this time of year, but I cant stand what it does to my lips!
I want to let you know what I use on my lips to help with the dryness, cracking, chapping, and peeling. Sounds terrible, I know. But there are solutions!
Victoria's Secret Smooth FX Lip Scrub: This comes in two parts attached together. The top part is a balm (the purple), and the bottom part is the lip scrub (clear with little baby beads). This lip scrub, is alright. I mean, it's a good lip scrub for those of you with minimal dry, cracked lips. It really doesnt have a distinct taste (which is a plus), and will do the trick if you want to clean up a bit and need some hydration. The lip balm is great, too! I love it! Definitely hydrating and tastes good!
Lush Lip Scrub in Bubblegum: This is a more textured lip scrub with a light bubblegum taste to it. I like this one better than the VS Lip Scrub. I constantly lick my lips so they get chapped and dry really easily. This lip scrub really helps to clean up the peeling. It's not as hydrating as the VS Lip Scrub, but typically you want to add a balm to your lips after, so regardless it's still great!
Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine: This is my go-to lip product to hydrate my lips after I have scrubbed them. I love this stuff! I use it throughout my day as well. My lips need all I can get and this really keeps them hydrated for extended periods of time and also helps when my lips are really chapped and I dont have my medicated chapstick with me!
Medicated Chapstick: I use this often as well! Due to the fact I lick my lips like CRAZY - this helps my lips when they get super red and start to hurt. This does tingle on your lips, especially if they are red. It's medicated so it started working immediately to alleviate the pain from the soreness and redness. IT REALLY WORKS! In just 24 hours after super sore redness and dryness, my lips were restored and I was back to using my Korres Lip Butter.
All these products are great! I use them daily/weekly and they truly help with cracked, peeled, sore, red, dry lips. I have to stay on top of my lip treatments due to the fact I am on the go and I do wear lipstick/lipgloss daily. It's not cute to have dry peeled lips while wearing lipstick!
Are there any lip products you use to cure/treat winter lips?
