Makeup Monday: Chapped Lips and Chapstick

I feel like dry winter air creates a constant fight with your lips to maintain moisture and smoothness!ย Hi, my name is Kait and I’m a chapstick addict. Confession time: I own a million and one and can never ever find them- they always end up in random purses and coat pockets.

All of the above are some of my tried and true favs; I highly recommend any and all of them! Have you ever tried a lip scrub? If not, give it a go! Any chapstick can only work so well, but using a lip scrub creates a smooth base to make any chapstick way more effective. I tend to use one twice a week, while I use a face mask; it’s always good to have a pampering night to take care of yourself physically and mentally.

Can you believe it’s already the second week in February? Insane. I hope you are each ready for this new week and have a fantastic Monday!

    That rosebud salve is definitely one of my all-time favorites! I also love plain vaseline in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the tips – I would really love to try out that lip balm from Fresh as their products are really amazing and my lips get so dry in the winter! I find that LUSH lip scrubs and my rosebud salve really help though!

    Haha, I can totally relate to always misplacing and losing my chopsticks! If I can’t find mine, I’ll grab my hubby’s and lose his, too; he gets so pissed, haha, oops! My lips get really, really dry during these winter months, so your suggestions are appreciated! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful day ahead, beauty!

    Lol! Your confession made me laugh so hard. I will try the lip scrub and I need to get a chapstick thanks to your amazing advice because lips are prone to a lot of harsh chemicals from lipsticks and the cold or hot weather. Thanks fro sharing! xoxo!

    Ugh my lips have been so dry the past few weeks!! It’s been driving me crazy lol!! Nivea has always been a fav of mine, but I’ve actually never tried this particular one before. I’ve also never tried a lip scrub before, which I’ll need to do! Great post!

    kait–great picks. lip balm is a must all year around and a staple in any of my bags. you have my favorite one featured, the jack black. it literally lasts forever and it has SPF, because you know we can get spots on our lips too! xoxo,

    I live in a dry climate so it’s even worse here in winter. I use lip scrub maybe 2-3 times a week and it really helps. All of your picks look really good!
