It’s no secret that I struggle with dry lips; I actually struggle with dry skin in general, so I’m always looking to increase the moisture levels of my skin and decrease flakiness. With my lips being so dry and chapped most of the time, wearing a matte lipstick was pretty impossible until I discovered lip exfoliators, and the latest addition to my collection is this one.
The Elf Lip Exfoliator comes conveniently packaged as a lipstick, so it’s very simple and easy to use. When you apply it to the lips, the scrubbing particles do the job pretty much immediately; I could literally see bits of dry skin coming off my lips. Having said that, it’s very gentle on the lips and it’s infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape and Jojoba Oils exfoliate, protect and nourish your lips, all in one step.
My main tip to get rid of excess dry skin would be to use soft circular motions when applying to damp lips; don’t rub it in too hard because you don’t want to damage the delicate skin on your lips. Then wipe away the scrub with water or a damp cotton pad and follow with a lip balm. I’ve been using this pretty much every time I apply lipstick; it makes a huge difference on how my lipstick looks and lasts on my lips. Oh and it tastes delicious!
I would highly recommend this if you suffer from dry or chapped lips, especially before applying a bold red lippie. With it being well under a fiver, it won’t break the bank! I’ve tried a similar lip scrub from Lush (review HERE), which is also really good, but slightly more expensive and it makes a bigger mess.
So what do you think of the Elf Lip Exfoliator? Have you tried it before? Have you tried anything similar? Let me know!
P.S.: Sorry I haven’t blogged very often recently; I’ve been incredibly busy! My wedding is now only 2 months away, so I’m turning into a bit of a bridezilla trying to get everything organised. I’ll film some videos early next week, so feel free to request any videos you’d like to see! Thanks for all your lovely comments and kind words :) If you’d like to keep up to date with what I’m doing when I’m not blogging, follow me on Instagram (@lebeautygirl).
