Beauty Edit: Splurge or Save Dry Lip Saviors

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
-Audrey Hepburn

I am a chapstick addict. There are probably have at least ten open tubes around me at the moment! I like to keep one in the bag I’m using and extras in all my coat pockets. Sometimes more than just a humble chapstick is needed! These serums and scrubs will revive your lips and leave them flake free and well hydrated. Plus, I’m sharing my fav save for dry lips! 

1: Give your lips a good scrub down.

Lip Scrub: Splurge

This Fresh Sugar Lip Polish is a Cult Classic! This scrub uses jojoba oil and shea butter with brown sugar to gently buff flakes away. BONUS: It’s made without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

Dry Lip Basking in Burgundy

Lip Scrub: Save

It’s super easy to make a DIY dry lip scrub at home with ingredients found in your kitchen! Simply mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with one tablespoon of packed brown sugar. This hack takes less than a minute to make!

2: Douse your lips with a serum packed full of nutrients.
Clinique Lip Serum Basking in Burgundy

Lip Serum: Splurge

Clinique is such a classic brand with an excellent reputation. This Clinique All About Lips serum is proof to both! Full of kola and olive extract this serum is the extra paraben free boost your lips need post-scrub.

I personally am on my second bottle of this dry lip savior right now! This oil and vitamin-packed Blistex Conditioning Lip Serum absorbs super quick leaving lips smooth and happy. The control pump top means no wasted product either.  BONUS: It’s under $3!

3: Apply a lip balm to seal all the goodness in.

Bite Beauty Basking in Burgundy

Lip Balm: Splurge

Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip balm is free of silicones and petrochemicals, instead agave and vanilla make it ultra nourishing. The sleek packaging means you won’t feel odd pulling it out of a clutch on date night instead of a lipstick! Score! Burts Bees Ultra Conditioning Basking in BurgundyLip Balm: Save

At under $5, the Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm controls the majority of my chapstick real estate. It’s so easy and cheap to have one of these hypoallergenic, kokum butter packed sticks in every purse and pocket! BONUS: My hubby loves it too!
