Beauty Essential: Lip Scrub

Nothing looks worse then dried, flaking lips. There are many products such as chapsticks and Vaseline that can heal chapped lips, but what both products fail to do is exfoliate. There are a wide array of lip exfoliators on the market such as Smashbox's Emulsion Lip Exfoliant, Korres Lemon Lip Scrub, and Fresh's Brown Sugar Lip Polish (all of these can be found at Sephora). I recently purchased C.O. Bigelow's Mentha Lip Buffer from Bath and Body Works. Bigelow is a 168 year old company based in NYC and prides itself on it's high quality ingredients they use in their products, many of which are celebrity favorites (plus they do not test on animals). The Mentha Lip Buffer is made of 100% natural mint, peppermint oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, sugar crystals, avacado oil, jojoba oil, and many other fabulous ingredients. By squeezing out a pea sized amount of the Lip Buffer, and rubbing it with your index finger along your lips, you are guaranteed a totally sexy, and completely kissable pout.
