This multipurpose lip scrub and balm has saved my dry lips this winter - it removes flaky skin and moisturizes all at once
- Dry, chapped, flaky lips can seem unavoidable during cold winter months - no matter how much lip balm you slather on.
- Luckily for me, I found an easy-to-use product that works wonders at keeping my lips soft and smooth.
- The Lanolips Lemonaid Scrubba-Balm ($17) is a lip exfoliator and balm housed in one convenient, twist-up tube. It makes buffing and hydrating my lips quick and easy.
I use a comical amount of Aquaphor. At this point, I feel like they should sponsor me. Every night before bed, I slather an abnormally thick layer onto my lips with the hopes that when I wake up, they'll feel soft and supple. It works, for the most part. But sometimes Aquaphor alone (or any thick lip balm for that matter) is not enough to truly get rid of dry, flaky, chapped lips. For that, you'll need a good lip scrub.
This article isn't about Aquaphor anyway, it's about Lanolips - the Australian beauty brand that infuses hydrating lanolin into all of its products - including its Lemonaid Scrubba-Balm, also known as my favorite new beauty product right now.
The Lanolips Lanostick Lemonaid Scrubba-Balm is a two-in-one lip exfoliator and balm.
It's simple, but that's what makes it so great.
The product is housed in a twist-up tube that makes for easy application. Instead of having to dip your fingers in a messy pot, you can just quickly swipe a layer on your lips. There are extra-fine sugar crystals and crushed orange peel to gently exfoliate. But unlike most scrubs, which can sometimes leave your lips feeling almost raw, there is lanolin in the formula to protect your lips from too much friction. Lanolin is a 100% natural wax that holds up to 400% of its weight in moisture. It's used to help heal wounds and burns, so you can imagine what it would do for something as simple as chapped lips.
How to use it:
To use, just swipe a layer of the Scrubba-Balm on your lips and rub lips together to buff away dead skin cells. You can pat away or lick off any leftover bits - don't worry, it's all-natural. The final reveal? Soft, smooth, hydrated lips. Use it once a week or whenever you feel like lip balm alone just isn't cutting it. If your lips are particularly dry, I'd recommend following up with an extra layer of balm to lock in all the moisture.
The bottom line? This is $17 well spent.
