Dry lips. Ugh. For a lipstick lover dry lips are the worst. They are uncomfortable, even painful, stubborn, and not nice to look at. The climate in Yukon is exceptionally dry. Combine that with cold temperatures and electric heat and you’ve got the perfect recipe for dry, flaky lips.
I’ve tried a lot of different remedies over the last few years. Burt’s Bees lip balms aren’t quite up the task, and vaseline is effective but unpleasant to use.
I ordered this Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask from Sephora about a year ago out of desperation. Laneige is a Korean skincare brand. From the website:
“Define Your Natural Beauty. Reveal your natural glow effortlessly with LANEIGE’s innovative yet uncomplicated skincare and makeup.”
They had me at effortless and uncomplicated. One slick of this delectably strawberry scented lip mask and you’ll wake up with a soft and flake free kisser ready for a swipe of your favourite lipstick. I love this stuff and the tub will last you ages!
If you’re a germaphobe (bless you), the mask comes with a little scoop so you don’t have to dip your fingers into the pot. I immediately lost mine but I thought it was a nice touch.
Do you struggle with dry lips?
