The sun is shining and the weather is oh so sweet! I’ve just applied my favourite lipstick and my lips have that cracked effect! Panic sets in, what on Earth has happened to my lips. After a bit of research I picked up a few inexpensive lip products that have left me feeling summer time ready. I’ve listed them below, hopefully they help you out too if you feel your lips are in need of boost.
First things first, I found that a good lip scrub is a must. This will help remove the build up of dead skins cells from your lips, leaving behind soft smooth supple lips.
- Lush have some amazing tasting lip scrubs made with all natural ingredients. You simply rub a bit of the scrub on your lip with a clean finger, which buffs away the dead skin cells then lick off the excess. Or if you chose you can use a wet wipe to remove the excess, either way you’re left with soft lips! They are very affordable and last quite a while.
- If you prefer not to use your finger you can get the lipscuff from body shop. It does exactly the same thing as the lip scrub from lush, but is in stick form in a retractable tube. You simply apply the lipscuff to your lips, rub your lips together and wipe the excess off with a wet wipe or tissue and voila! It is however slightly more expensive than the lush lip scrubs.
Once this process has been done you can follow up with a lip balm of your choice. My new favourite is the EOS lip balm its all natural and does the job! It also tastes and smells amazing. This product is widely available online and costs just under £6! Bargain!
Another favourite of mine is the born lippy lip balm by body shop. There’s a trend happening here lol. Again, this lip balm smells and tastes great, gives a lovely shine and lasts on your lips! All for just £2.
And thats that! A few of my favourites for smooth kissable lips x
