We’re officially in the dead of winter and that means keeping our skin hydrated against the elements continues to be a daily fight. I myself have taken to daily dry brushing and reapplying moisturizer on an almost hourly rotation to keep my skin soft and smooth. However, no matter how hard I try, it seems nearly impossible to keep my lips from getting cracked and chapped.
If you feel that you’ve tried everything from lip balm to oils, masks, and more, then allow me to give you a peek into my beauty cupboard that’s filled with my fave products that’ll save your lips this season.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
If you’re always waking up with chapped lips, it might be time to get your paws on Laneige’s infamous Lip Sleeping Mask. Available in a variety of different scents, simple apply before bed and you’ll awaken with soft lips with no cracks in sight.
Picking my favourite lip balm feels a little like choosing a favourite child but if I absolutely had to choose, it might just be this Rose Lip Balm from Fresh. Not only is the scent so beautiful and floral, but it’s the softest balm I’ve ever applied.
eos Super Soft Shea Lip Balm Stick
Meet the lip balm that you’ll start leaving all over your house. I keep one of these eos lip balms on my coffee table, bedroom, bathroom, my purse, and in my office. They’re amazing for hydrating the lips thanks to the shea butter and come in different scents, too!
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Lip Oil Crystal Elixir
Lip oils are all the rage right now and one that should definitely be on your list is the Magic Lip Oil from Charlotte Tilbury. It glides on in an instant and you’ll notice how conditioned your lips feel thanks to the addition of hyaluronic acid. The formula feels lightweight and helps give your lips a smoother and fuller appearance, too.
Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm
If you’re after a lip balm that’s isn’t clear but also isn’t wildly pigmented, you’ll want to check out the Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balms. Available in two varieties — Vanilla (clear) and Vanilla Beige (a rosey hue), these balms boost shine, provide excellent hydration and are vegan and clean, too!
Fancy Face Supermodel Lip Bath
One of the most gorgeous lip balms I’ve ever had the pleasure of using is the Fancy Face Lip Bath. Upon trying it for the first time I didn’t understand why it’s referred to as a ‘bath’ but now I get it. The hydrating and smoothing formula envelopes the lips so effortlessly and feels so comforting and luscious. Plus a neat little brush comes with and there’s even a built-in mirror!
Gee Beauty Sugar Lip Scrub
Flaking lips got you down? Not anymore because this sugary sweet lip scrub from Gee Beauty gently sloughs off dead skin but leaves behind a smooth and hydrated pout with a subtle vanilla scent. Obviously not a lip balm but it’s your lip balm’s newest BFF.
