Pucker Up with 8 winter lip care products we love, and Give your lips a little love this winter with these favorites.
Winter’s here, and ‘tis the season to give your lips a little extra TLC. Frosty air, frigid temps and low humidity create a perfect storm that can wreak havoc on your pout.
Your lips are the thinnest, most delicate skin on your face, making them prone to all sorts of wintertime woes — dryness, flakiness, chapping, cracking and chafing. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite products that will give your lips the love they need all winter long — and beyond
In winter, we firmly believe that flakes belong in the air - not on our lips! Sloughing off dead skin cells and debris is the unskippable first step in a solid lip care routine.
Kari Gran Lip Whip Perfector triples up as an exfoliator, lip colour remover, and five-minute moisturizing lip mask. This organic wild harvested sugar scrub might work hard to give the lips the love they deserve, but it's ultra gentle on your skin — and to the environment.
If you’d like something compact and perfectly portable, you’ll love Olio E Osso Lip Scrub. Made with ground olive stones and coffee beans, this one-of-a-kind exfoliator contains caffeine to protect your skin from irritation as it buffs away debris. (Talk about perking up your pout!)
After you’ve smoothed things over, it’s time to seal all that softness in with vitamin-enriched lip treatments that nourish, repair, and condition.
LXMI Nilotica Lip Melt leaves you with a lushly hydrated, visibly plumper pout. Richly infused with peppermint and olive oils and Nilotica Reserve™, this portable pot protects against environmental aggressors so your lips stay silky soft in even the harshest conditions. (Pro tip: you can even use it on your cuticles!)
If you prefer your balm in stick form, look no further than Salt & Stone California Mint Lip Balm. This emollient blend of skin-loving Vitamin E, grapeseed, and sunflower oils leaves your lips with a matte but perfectly moisturised finish. The balm’s minty fresh fragrance awakens your winter-weary senses as it works its magic.
Once you’ve primed the “canvas”, the final step is adding a pop of colour to your pout for the perfect winter pick me up to instantly brighten up your whole face — and your mood too.
Kari Gran Rosie Lip Whip adds the finishing touch to your look with a flirty hint of sheer rose gold colour. Its buildable peachy hue comes from pigments sourced straight from nature. The buttery smooth texture soothes dry lips with a blend of cruelty-free, non-GMO ingredients, including beeswax and organic oils.
Hot date? Ere Perez Carrot Colour Pot (Happy) imparts a subtle sheen of sultry berry red, which is naturally derived from antioxidant-rich carrots. This silky-smooth vegan colour pot multitasks as a lippie and blush for an all-over sensual glow. It even has a mirror lid for quick touch ups, making it perfect for a romantic night out — or in.
If you prefer to get pretty in pink, Olio E Osso Balm No 3 Crimson is universally-flattering, ultra-quenching tinted lip colour that wakes up your entire face with a spirit-lifting shade of sheer cerise. This 100% natural handcrafted gloss-balm hybrid contains nourishing shea and olive oils.
Dreaming of warmer summer days ahead instead? Why wait? Pacifica Blood Orange Color Quench Lip Tint takes its inspiration from sunny citrus fruit to transport your senses to a far-off sun-soaked paradise. Infused with lip-loving tropical coconut and avocado oils, you feel like you’re on a beach somewhere beautiful.
