'Tis the season to be jolly and to have cracked, dry and unkissable lips. However, my smackeroos aren't going down without a fight and what better timing to do something about it than with the arrival of Sara Happ's latest holiday limited edition: The Black Cherry Lip Scrub and Lip Slip Duo! I was so in love with her past holiday lip scrub, Red Velvet and honestly didn't think anything could top it but I was wrong. With delish aromas of luscious black cherry and hints of velvety warmth, this is the perfect product to gently exfoliate the sensitive dry skin on your lips and leave them feeling silky smooth and very kissable. Top it off with The Lip Slip for added moisture and gloss and your lip pillows are ready for that mistletoe.
This duo by Sara Happ truly is the perfect holiday gift, whether it be for yourself or a friend who loves bakery type scents and lip products. Both of these products would normally sell for $48 but you get this duo for only $40!! That's an $8 savings for a present you'll be hearing rave reviews about from the recipients for months to come.Read More »
I'm slightly obsessed with Sara Happ products and am literally dying of excitement when she comes out with a new Lip Scrub flavor. Sara has been listening to her obsessive-compulsive gloss appliers out there and has made her uber popular Lip Slip Balm into a Lip Slip Gloss that comes in a finger-free easy to apply tube. It's the same formulation, rich in nourishing ingredients of Jojoba and Macadamia Nut Oils, but with an added bonus of extra shine! We all like to have the option of a jar or a gloss and now you can collect them both. Keep one on your bed side table and one in your purse so you always have some lip moisture with you at all times.Read More »
The skin on your lips is one of the most sensitive parts of your body. In spite of their gentleness, lips undergo a lot of abuse – from sun exposure to cold blasts of wind to excessively dry weather. If you don’t take care of your lips, they can become chapped or crack, leaving them the opposite of kissable. Caring for them with the ingredients found in a natural lip balm, such as RODIN Olio Lusso lip balm, can keep your kisser soft and hydrated. Here are some other benefits you’ll receive from regularly using your favorite lip balm:Read More »
A beauty junkie's addiction can be easily seen first hand by taking a peak through her makeup bag. One of the key items always found is a stash of lip products varying in lip glosses, lip sticks or stains of different shades, shimmers and textures. It's very typical of women that we cannot be satisfied with bare lips for to long and having a lip product tucked away in our purse makes for a kind of security blanket of sorts.
This very discussion was the key topic in this mornings The Zoe Report's e-newsletter along with their '10 Picks to Pucker Up' your lips for spring. One of the covetable picks which is no surprise to us is Sara Happ's recent addition, The Lip Slip Gloss saying, "Prep your pucker for a shine-filled season with this must have gloss." Only $18, this #1 selling item is a pocket sized and finger friendly gloss that delivers maximum shine and deep conditioning for your precious lip pillows!

The eyes are the window to the soul and the lips are just as alluring and provacative. We need to take good care of our lip pillows 365 days a year to keep them readily soft and kissable. The skin on the lips is a lot thinner and sensitive than our bodies so we need to be mindful of the products we use to address the issues of cracked skin and dry lips. Take a gander at some of our picks to keep them pucker-iffic!
First step to soft lips is to exfoliate and there's nothing better or more yummy smelling than Sara Happ's Limited Edition Blood Orange Lip Scrub. Tiny, granular sugar crystals gently exfoliates flaky skin to leave lips incredibly soft and supple. One of my favorite products ever, this is gentle enough to use once a week. Try your best not to be tempted to eat any, it smells that enticing.
If you'd like to forego the step of needing a sink then Ilia's handy Lip Exfoliator comes in lipstick form and can be used daily. Organic ingredients blended with tiny granules of volcanic stone powder gently exfoliate lips. There's no need to rinse, simply follow up with a lip conditioner to seal in moisture.
For lip conditioning like no other may I tempt you and your wallet with By Terry's Baume de Rose SPF 15. This rose like no other (it smells of the classic flower), is a melt away balm that has become the must have of Hollywood stars because of its ability to repair, nourish, regenerate the lip area and leave a beautiful soft glossy sheen in it's wake. It can also be used as a salve to strengthen your cuticles!
Don't let lips go naked! You've buffed and conditioned them to perfection, now it's time to get them noticed with a hint of color with Kevyn Aucoin The Lip Gloss. Choose from 12 different shades from soft peach to the brightest blood red that will keep lips shiny and smooth without feeling greasy or slippery.

An amazing pink and orange sunset is setting the perfect romantic backdrop, you're wearing your favorite floral sundress, your hair is styled in the perfect undone beach wave. He leans in for the kiss and then you remember……my dry, flaky lips are not in any condition for romance! If only we could pause the situation like a movie scene, but unfortunately if you haven't remembered to exfoliate your lips, chances are this is going to be one rough smackeroo session.
Because the lips are a thinner and more sensitive area than the rest of your face, it's imperative that you use a separate exfoliant for that area, not the abrasive microderm product you might use on the rest of your face. There's is no better product than Sara Happ's Limited Edition Blood Orange Lip Scrub. This gentle yet effective sugar scrub will lightly exfoliate your lips with delish smelling granular sugar crystals. Simply apply onto lips and rub in circular motions for a minute and then rinse off. The lips are left soft and smooth and ready for some kissing!

If you've ever wondered why lipstick gets embedded in the cracks of your lips even after the majority of it has disappeared or why the application process can be less than smooth then you've stumbled upon an area that needs its own special beauty routine. Typically when flakiness occurs we think to just wipe some lipbalm on them for a quick fix, however the lips need to be exfoliated and conditioned just like the rest of the body in order to have lipstick look great and be applied to precision. Our favorite product that gives great 'lip service' as seen in the September issue of In Style magazine is the Sara Happ Blood Orange Lip Scrub. Consisting of gentle sugar crystals to exfoliate and condition the lips and the delish and citrusy aroma of blood orange, Sara Happ sugar scrubs will leave lips in the perfect form for lipstick application. Any of her products are a major staff favorite around these parts!
