Hello lovelies, during Winter, our lips can get very dry and flaky if we don’t take proper care of them.
I have a few products that work wonders keeping my lips hydrated, especially since they are naturally quite dry.
First, I use the e.l.f. lip exfoliator which is a lip scrub in a lipstick tube. You apply it like lipstick then wipe it away with a damp cotton ball.
At night, I use the My Favorite Night Balm that I got from Birchbox. Which is actually my favorite. I used to apply two extremely thick layers of lip balm every night and still wake up with dry lips. With this, my lips are smooth until morning.
In the morning, I use another lip balm I got from Birchbox. This one is the Ellovi Vanilla Lip Butter that I just bought and love. It’s 100% natural and feels so good on my lips. It keep my lips far smoother than any other lip balm I have ever tried (besides the night balm).
After that, I do my makeup and continue on to apply lip color. Lately I have been really into the mally beauty lip treats I also purchased from Birchbox. The colors are very versatile and flattering. For example the really dark one isn’t super dark but more of a sheer brighter pinky color. I have heard they go well over lipsticks as well!
Usually, I don’t need to apply any other lip balm throughout the day but sometimes, I do. When I do, I put on Maybelline’s Baby Lips which I am not a fan of. It seems to dry my lips out more! I recommend an all natural one. I am not a person that makes a point of specifically buying natural products but when I do, it’s a plus and I can tell the difference.
What lip products do you use? Let me know!
