Chapped lips are an inevitable part of my winter months, mostly because I forget to use the right products when I need them. I find myself at the end of each day looking like I spent a week on the slopes and staring longingly at my lipstick collection. Well, spring has sprung and I can finally get rid of my wind-burned pout with the help of two great (delicious and natural) products!
Scrub Them Smooth with Bite Beauty
The Bite Beauty lip collection features super antioxidant resveratrol and along with all-natural ingredients like organic shea butter, superfoods and food-grade color, these products are good enough to eat! I always carry around my Superfruit Butter in Cranberry for daily use but at night I use the Whipped Cherry Fruit Scrub. This scrub, which has the texture of a mousse, exfoliates and moisturizes lips and seriously tastes and smells amazing! Along with resveratrol, the product contains cherry fruit acids, rice bran, soothing jojoba beads and Vitamin C to brighten, smooth and soften. Get your Whipped Cherry Fruit Scrub from Sephora; $18.
Repair and Condition with NB Ceutical
NATURA BISSÉ finds its way out of the spa and into your purse with its NB Ceutical Lip Recovery Balm. This balm is unlike any I’ve encountered before. While some girls are addicted to Chapstick, I am now addicted to Lip Recovery Balm. The creamy balm instantly softens and plumps my lips and leaves them looking perfect. Using a natural extract of Ceratonia Siliqua, the balm is able to boost the natural micro-repairing process of the lips and leaves them looking plump, the natural botanical extract Opuntia Ficus softens and smoothes and the polyunsaturated fatty acids (avocado, amaranth and rosa mosqueta oils) along with Vitamins E and F nourish your pout and replenish hydration levels. As an avid wearer of the nude-lip, this balm is the perfect primer for my favorite lipsticks. Get your NB Ceutical Lip Recovery Balm from Natura Bisse; $65
Add a Little Rouge!
After using these products my lips are in tip-top condition and are ready, willing and able to be colored in with the season’s hottest colors! One of my newest favorites is Shiseido’s Shimmering Rouge in Sorbet, the perfect pink that’s been taking me from the office to happy hour with ease after a quick sweep of the very tasty Nuance Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Peony. I’m also a huge fan of beautyADDICTS BeautiFULLlips collection. The whole line features gorgeous and very wearable creamy colors that are enriched with vitamin E, shea butter, jojoba oil and a formula that plumps using natural peptides that stimulates collagen.
