As the air is getting colder (and much drier in Kansas City), I really need to take care of my lips. The following products exfoliate, hydrate and beautify the lips this fall and winter!
bliss fabulips sugar lip scrub ($18.00 USD) — This sweetly flavored pout-polishing scrub gently exfoliates lips to remove dead, chapped skin for a beautifully smooth finish that can actually help your lipstick last longer. Featuring finely granulated sweet sugar, almond and walnut shell, the vanilla & orange flavored formula gently exfoliates to buff away dry flakes while jojoba seed and olive oils, shea and cocoa butters, and vitamins A, C and E nourish and condition. Read our lips – it’s the simplest way to get a polished pout! Available at bliss spas, blissworld.com and Sephora.
L’Occitane Lip Balm($12): This new organic balm, made with 10% shea butter, soothes dry and chapped lips and provides gentle nourishing and protective care. This is a part of the Limited-Edition Shea Butter Collection that features packaging designed by L’OCCITANE Founder Olivier Baussan who was inspired by the traditional bogolan fabrics of Africa and the country’s indigenous flowers. Available in the below scents, the limited-edition body cream, hand cream and lip balm speak to L’Occitane’s ongoing work with the women of Burkina Faso, Africa who produce all of the Fair Trade Shea Butter used in L’Occitane products.
