Smooth Lips | elf Lip Exfoliator, Elizabeth Arden Lip-Fix

I feel like I have the dryest lips ever! My lips are always dry no matter what. I used to ignore the dryness and just didn't care enough to apply lip balm or whatever. Every time I apply on lipsticks, not long after I would see the product all "feather-ed" up leaving horrid-looking residue on my lips. I used to think the lipsticks were the problem, until I realized they were not. 

These products help me. I haven't seen my lipsticks get feathery since I've used these. 

Lip Exfoliator helps to get rid of the dead skin on your lips. The idea is the same with what scrubs do to our body. This one from elf is very affordable, and it does the job well. It is pretty weird at first to put a lipstick-looking product and just rub it all over my lips. I then need to rinse it off with water. You can also get similar result by rubbing your toothbrush on your lips when you brush your teeth. It does the same effect with more efficient, since we all brush our teeth anyway. Be careful not to rub too harsh as you might hurt your lips. Lips have the most sensitive surface.

After exfoliating, or after brushing my teeth, I apply a lip balm to keep the moisture locked in. It can be any favorite lip balm you have. I am currently enjoying Honey lip balm from the Body Shop. I can smell the scent forever! I love honey!

One last tip is for  all my fellow lip junkies out there. I discovered this on the "beauty aisle" at T.J. Maxx. It just so happened they were having Elizabeth Arden there at the time. I was just browsing all the random items they had and picked this out. It was already a couple of years ago, and i still had not run out. I just used the tiniest bit on my lips before I put on my makeup. Then, after I'm done with my face makeup, my lips are all prepped and ready for a lipstick. This helps the lasting power and keep the "feathering" away. Such a miracle product!
