'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 »
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.

Exfoliation is one of the keys to hold off premature aging and just keep your complexion looking even and radiant. It's one of my absolute favorite parts of a beauty routine because it actually feels like something is happening (especially if the texture is gritty). Needless to say, I'm always on the lookout for great and effective exfoliants to try so my interest was piqued when I saw Peter Thomas Roth's FirmX Peeling Gel featured in Star magazine.
This is unlike any exfoliant I tried in that you don't need to wet skin to use. Instead, generously massage it over a dry face and watch as the product causes your dead skin cells to visibly roll and lift off! How is this possible you must be asking? Multi-action enzymes and cellulose gently remove impurities without drying or irritating your face to reveal a more youthful looking complexion. The FirmX Peeling Gel dulls away skin in under a minute so perfect for those busy career women or stay-at-home moms.
