Beat The Winter Lip Blues

I don't know about you but the winter plays serious havoc with my lips.

Dry, sore, flaky - pretty much a gross look for any lady right?!
 With the wind and cold outside and the heating inside my lips tend to become a real pain in the butt and I do everything in my power to avoid that dreading 'trip-lip' ..... you know... when your lips get all sore and red, like so red above them that it looks like another lip. I mean I haven't had that since I was a child but it's a fear of mine!

This little duo have been a god send and won't be leaving my side until spring is here!

First the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub, which I have mentioned many a time here on A Yellow Brick Blog. This is the perfect product for keeping my lips healthy, soft and flake free.
The yummy smelling (and tasting) sugar scrub is easy to use, I just pop a bit on my fingers and rub it in circles across my lips or rub my lips together to help get rid of all that nasty dead skin. This creates the perfect base for all my lippys!

Next - to battle those sore lips. The new Blistex Intensive Moisturiser in Cherry*.
Blistex are one of my go-to brands when it comes to lip therapy products and this new addition to their collection is actually the best I've tried from them.
The new cherry flavoured intensive balm brings a bit of fun to the otherwise simple looking original. The smooth clear gel balm isn't sticky at all, it soaks into the lips with ease leaving them soft and seriously hydrarting for hours on end - all with a lovely cherry scent. (It reminds me of cherry drops/cherryade and takes me straight back to being 12 years old!)

What are you favourite lip products at the moment?

  1. Well, I am not a fan of neither bubblegum or cherry flavoured/scented things (I don't think many Australians are...) so I won't be getting these particular products, but I do try to keep my lips in tip-top shape as best I can! I like the Blistex Lip Conditioner when my lips are in serious need of repair -- it doesn't do much to help flakiness, but it does go a long way in healing them when they're chapped. After that, I use the plain old Maybelline Baby Lips to fix the flakiness. Works a treat for me! :)

  2. Oh god I was talking about that redness around lips at work the other day! Had no idea that's what it's called! I love the Lush lip scrubs, couldn't be without it now but I usually followup with Carmex as it stays on my lips longer!
