Lip Tricks: Eye Balm as Lip Balm
I used Creme de la Mer The Eye Balm Intense on flaky, dry lips. Et voila! In the morning they were noticeably better.
My lips went from cracked and peeling to a lot smoother. The next day, I used Dr. Brandt's Microdermabrasion in Jar ( just the teensiest bit) on my lips. I pursed my lips tight and scrubbed the devil off my lips-- applied The Eye Balm Intense and today, I am so happy I am posting about it. (Be careful not to open your mouth, I got grainy bits on my molars and all I can say is ew + my dentist already hates me).
I refuse to put up pictures of my lips 'before' because they are too gross-- like a person lost in the woods or suffering in the desert for days. You've seen it on tv.
BTW, I want to share how this happened: In addition to the super cold weather and dry air, I have been using powerful all-day lip colors which severely dry out my lips. These will be kept for special occasions only, no more casual use until they come out with a super moisturizing formula.
Any creamy eye balm + microfine exfoliator should work. If you have a special lip exfoliator, all the better.
BTW, I used some samples I had lying around-- if you want to try out Dr. Brandt's, get a sample from Sephora. The face peel review is coming soon.
Soft (again) kisses!
