Luscious Lips

When my lips are feeling a little sore, a little dry and a little unloved, there are three products I will always turn to:

Step 1 of #Operationlushlips is to gently scrub them with this scrumptious Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub. I really take my time to work it all over my lips, and when you wash it off (or lick it off because it tastes amazing) you'll be left with the softest lips. 

Step 2 is to use a really intensely hydrating and nourishing lip balm - this excludes anything with mineral oils or petroleum (Vaseline I'm looking at you), because these sit on top of your lips rather than actually hydrating them. Two that I love are the Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm that smells gorgeous and really does absorb into your lips hydrating them from the inside out! Another one that's brilliant, especially for overnight use, is the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment (full review here). It's slightly less purse-friendly, but it's well worth it! As well as containing a blend of nourishing essential oils, it also contains hyaluronic acid which is very hard to find in a lip balm - this really is the star ingredient for me, and keeps the lips super hydrated! Slather some of this on overnight and wake up to pouty pillow lips! 

Have you tried any of these products?

Happy reading,
