Winter Lip Care

As I started to write this blog post on Thursday, there was a blizzard brewing outside my door. The image above is the street I live on, covered in snow! 4 days after said blizzard, it still looks pretty similar. I was happily typing up a blog to post on Friday, and right as I started my power went out, and stayed out for 12 hours! But finally, after hours without power, multiple shovelings of my driveway, and white-knuckled driving in this mess, I bring you a new blog post.

As I've made all too clear, winter is very much still a reality in my neck of the woods. If I'm lucky, it might warm up as early as mid-March, but that's hopeful. So for now, I'm still using a regimen of products to keep my lips hydrated and nourished as they're very prone to chapping in the winter. Here's what I use.

Lush Lip Scrub in Mint Julips - A good lip exfoliator is key. I use Lush's Mint Julips, a sugar-based scrub that tastes deliciously like mint! I take a bit of this on my fingers and scrub it all over my lips to remove dead skin. You can lick this stuff off, and wa-lah! Smooth lips! 

EOS Lip Balm - After exfoliating, I go in with a lip balm. This particular flavor is "Fresh Watermelon" from the limited edition EOS 4-pack that was put out this summer. Any flavor will do! Smother this all over the lips for a nice burst of hydration.

Lypsyl Lip Balm - I tried this on a whim, and was majorly surprised by how amazing this lip balm is. It's made of beeswax, coconut oil and organic shea butter, among other ingredients. It lasts a good while on the lips and erases any hint of chapping. I seriously love this stuff!

Rose Salve - This smells faintly like rose, and is mega-hydrating. This has been in my lip care regimen for years, and for good reason. It keeps my lips smooth and soft and I love that I can smear the remaining product left on my fingers on any dry spots I have. 

These products have all been in rotation throughout this winter, and they've been working wonders on my lips. I'd love to know what products you use to keep your lips happy during the dry winter months! Let me know in the comments below.

  2. Love that C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve. You know what's a great lip exfoliator? The Colgate 360 toothbrushes that have the "cheek and tongue cleaner" things on the back on the brush heads. I use that on my lips every morning right before I put some lip balm on. Try it!

  3. I have very dry lips! I love to use lush lip scrub as well, so far I've only used Bubblegum but I love mint scent / taste things so I'll be definitely checking this one :D that picture outside your door is amazing xx

  4. I've got the mint eos and love it! I might give the lush scrub a try as I have heard many good things about it :)

  5. I love the EOS balms! I had no idea they had an LE summer pack though, the watermelon must smell amazing!!

    1. I randomly stumbled upon it at Target this summer and thought "why not?!" Certainly didn't need it, but it was too cute to pass up. :)

  6. OMG Mint Julips is something I cannot live without!
