    VASELINE
    Easiest cheapest best lip moisturizer. Cant be beat. I exfoliate with a wash cloth. Or sometimes with a home made mixture of white sugar and olive oil.

    I exfoliate using the Lush sugar lip scrub. It’s $9 and works a lot better for me than the more expensive options (Fresh, I’m looking at you)!

    My lips have really dried out since the dry, winter weather struck. So I have been wearing Sara Happ’s The Lip Slip as a treatment overnight. It is too sticky to wear as a lip balm during the day but it sure stays on all night! (And of course, the Lip Scrub too! I love Brown Sugar for a little indulgence once and a while.)

  4. Svetlana

    I exfoliate with YSL exfoliating lip balm once a week and moisturize with Chanel Hydramax + Active Nutrition lip care every morning and night.

  5. Hend

    I use brown sugar mixed with olive oil to exfoliate and Dior’s creme de rose as a night treatment

    Now that I think about it, I’m pretty low-maintenance with my… lip care. xD

    To exfoliate, I just brush over my lips with a toothbrush (a separate one from the one I use for my teeth!) after/during a shower.
    And I ALWAYS use my Hurraw! Vanilla Bean Lip Balm. Amazing, lovelovelove. c:

    My name is Sharron, and I’m a lip balmoholic. I’ve been addicted to lip treatments since my first tube of Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker in Seventh Grade. I have an embarrasing amount of pots and tubes in my stash, purse, car and desk at work.

    My current favorites are Ole Henriksen’s African Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Treatment and Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Lemon Chamomile. Both products do an amazing job of keeping my lips moisurized and flake-free, plus they smell really good.

      Dr. Pepper was my turning-point lip balm too! haha I think about it occasionally though I haven’t actually used it in yearrs.

    My lips can get pretty dry, so I always use a lip balm before I go to bed, like Caudalie Lip Conditioner or Korres Guava Lip Butter. I also like the lip balms from Burt’s Bees.

  9. Val

    i used Sara Happ’s lip scrub before but it’s too messy. Also, after two uses, my cat pushed it to the ground and broke it (heart broken)…Now I use Korres lemon lip scrub which I love! After that, I use Fresh lip treatment with SPF 15. Very good…no more dry lines on my lips and no more white stuff after lipstick!!!!

  10. Sarah

    I exfoliate with Lush’s lipscrub and use Burt’s Bee lip balm. Keeps my lips feeling great with little to no peeling.

  11. Where can u get that lip balm?

  12. Sam

    I use LUSH’s Bubblegum Lip Scrub and The Body Shop’s coconut lip butter. :)

  13. Nicole

    In the winter time I use Kaufmann’s Haut- und Kinder-Creme as a lip treament over night. It is a baby cream made in Germany and so thick and nurishing that my lips feel completely soft the noxt morning. I love this stuff.

  14. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of marie Marie

    Thanks to you, I use Jack Black lip balm.

  15. i use cranberry joy lipbalm from body shop!

  16. Angela

    Right now I’m using Neosporin’s lip therapy. I love how it hydrates my lips and provided spf protection

    Funny you should ask this. I recently purchased and tried Cosmedicine lip exfoliator, and it totally TORCHED my lips! They are chemically burned and puckered looking, kind of like when you’re hands/feet have been in water for hours. I’ve been treating them with lip balm for over a week, and they are just beginning to heal, but they burn, itch, peel, etc. OMG! Never again!

  18. Maude

    I just exfoliate my lips when I brush my teeth… I brush my lips and after I put some lip balm on. That’s it.

    • CeeBee

      Me too. That’s all I do. Blistex Intensive Repair is good and I use Lucas Papaw ointment a lot as well.

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Shannon Shannon

    I use a washcloth to exfoliate my lips then follow with Kiehls lip balm.

  20. I don’t spend money on lip scrubs anymore. I mix a tiny bit sugar with a dab of olive oil.

  21. I use Lush’s Bubblegum lip scrub a few times a week, and I also use the Jack Black Intense Therapy lip balm, Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 and Rosebud Salve daily. I love lip products!

  22. Julia

    I love Yu-Be lip balm for intense moisture. For a lighter balm, I like Korres lip butters.

  23. eva

    I use C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Buffer &
    I also use C.O. Bigelow rose salve

  24. BethM

    I use Fresh Sugar lip balm at night. I put it on right before bed, and my lips feel soft in the morning. I know a lot of people don’t like that one, but it works for me.

    During the day, I’ve switched to Jack Black lip balm, which is fabulous. (Thank you, Christine, for recommending this!!)

    I use the Fresh Sugar Plum Tinted Lip Treatment several times throughout the day and at night. It’s thick enough that a heavy-handed swipe stays on all night, but creamy enough that I can use just a thin layer through the day, and the tint makes it nice for when I don’t want to take the time to find a mirror and reapply something with more color. It tastes pretty awful, but I got used to that pretty quickly, and it really does moisturize my lips well. I usually exfoliate by rubbing my lips with a barely damp towel once a day.

  26. Kat

    I use Blistex Silk’n’Shine Lip Balm and C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve constantly.

  27. Amy

    Washcloth while showering…3-4 times a week, and Carmex in every coat pocket and bag. Something about the smell reminds me of the stuff mom used to slather on our lips as kids. Coulda been carmex for all I know!

  28. TheMiaomi

    Current fave : EOS organic lip spheres

    All time fave : MAC lip conditioners, Aquaphor, VS BeautyRush soothing lip balms, BBW organic Mentha lip tints.

    some of those are actually my HG lip gloss too.

  29. ann

    mac lip treatment is the best

  30. During the day, I use a anti-wrikle cream with an SPF (from Sephora, available in France)on my lip area and on my lips, then Jigsaw Organic Lip Balm (for night too).
    For plumpy lips, I mix some Oil (olive, sunflower…) and I apply on my lips, it’s so glossy !

  31. Marianthi

    I exfoliate using a toothbrush morning and night and then I use Nuxe’s Reve de Miel lip balm. Normal price, does what it says and I use it as lip primer in some drying lipsticks. Also great for any weather. Big plus: tastes so yummy!

  32. kcrystal

    light non waxy lip balm from upscale spas. I will spend more than 15 but under 20 for balms. I’ve tried numerous balms and nothing works better for me than the balm i’ve been using for 2 decades.

  33. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Marianne Mar

    I exfoliate with Lush Bubble Gum sugar lip scrub and I moisturize with Clinique All About Lips. It sinks in very quickly, doesn’t leave a greasy layer on my lips and removes flakes. My HG!
