My Current Lip Care Routine

HELLO! Occasionally some of my readers have asked about my daily lipcare routine and so today I will tell you all what I regularly use on my lips to keep them smooth and supple.

My previous lipcare routine used to involve lightly scrubbing my lips using a toothbrush and Vaseline every morning hoping to keep them soft, till I discovered the Mint Julips Lip Scrub from Lush (£4.75) and now I just love this stuff as it makes my lips super soft and kissable! I just use a small amount of it and for about a minute lightly scrub my lips using my finger and wash it off. It smells and tastes great...just like a Mint chocolate...Lush says that this lip scrub is edible (contains Castor sugar and Jojoba oil as active ingredients) and so you can lick them clean!
It's really a mess-free product and is perfect for those who are prone to dry, flakey lips in winter, plus there’s a lot of product inside this cute little jar and I am sure it'll last me a long time too :)



My second must have product for lips is the Climate Control Lip Treatment by Dermalogica (£5.50).
I'm more of a lip balm person when it comes to daily lip care and prefer slathering this lipbalm on before putting any lipstick as it keeps my lips soft and supple and also acts as a smooth canvas for lipsticks. This almost unscented and tasteless lipbalm contains lovelies like shea butter, vitamin E and oat extract to soothe sore spots on the lips and lock in moisture.
I have tried so many lip products but so far none of them could be compared to this mighty little lip healer! This stuff has worked wonders for my lips and is worth every hype and penny!



Apart from all this, I also make sure that I drink plenty of water as my lips are the first part of my body to show up any signs of dehydration.

  2. i also use a lip scrub from lush but it's the bubblegum one. :)

    i haven't tried any dermatologica products. i was desperately searching for a new lip balm since my lips were being extremely dry again a few weeks back and have even attempted to buy la mer's lip balm but it was out of stock so i picked up paul & joe's. :) it's been doing a good job so far but in case it fails i'll surely try this too! =D

  3. I don't do anything in particular to my lips but I do love the Crazy Rumours balms, especially the one flavoured like mint ice cream.
