During the coldest winter months I am in a constant battle with dry flaking lips. I've tried several lip balms and lip treatments and many of them only protect the surface and don't get to the heart of the problem, which is dry peeling skin.
Smashbox's Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($16 at Sephora) is one lip treatment that has been effective in my battle against dry chapped lips. This lip therapy has a subtle sweet honey flavor. It is colorless, but does add a pretty transparent sheen. The honey helps to soften and moisturize while the Vitamin E and shea butter help to nourish the skin. It is also packed full of antioxidants, vitamins A, C & E as well as shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils. Chamomile and aloe aid in soothing.
This is the one lip balm that I simply cannot live without during the winter months! As a remedy to peeling lips it is recommended to exfoliate with Smashbox's Emulsion Lip Exfoliant before applying the lip treatment. I have had a hard time finding Smashbox Lip Treatment
in-stock at stores, so it is probably best to order online.
Give it a try if you'd like your lips to be extra kissable this Valentine's Day!
