    Drink lots and lots of water the whole day. Then I use Chanel’s Ultra Correction Lip Treatment and leave it on my lips for a few minutes before I apply my lipstick.

    i have soft lips basically all the time…but maybe it’s because i drink lots of water aswell…when they do get dry, i put on the body shop lip butter in coconut or brazil nut…both have amazing scent!!! and they improve chapped lips in next to no time. chapstick is great too!!!

  7. burt’s bees classic balm. pepperminty and soothing. also rosebud salve. i like that at night.

  8. Sheena

    Vaseline every night and once a week (twice if needed), I exfoliate with Tarte’s Frxtion (sugar scrub on one side, vitamin E balm on the other).

  9. Definitely Vaseline morning and night, and good old Chapstick applied a million times during the day.

    a thin coat of olive oil (any oil will do, buy coconut if you wanna get fancy) on lips, cover with a piece of saran wrap, relax for a few minutes as it soaks in. Dap off excess when done. Once or twice a week depending on how dry lips are. Super easy and really works very well to actually get moisture into lips.

    My SO gets dry lips so I bought him Honey Trap lip balm by Lush and he keeps it in his pocket at all times. The heat from his body keeps it nice and soft, making it nice and easy to apply, not hard like most lip things. Its sooooooo yummy to kiss on :) My all time fav lip stuff and I don’t even wear it!!

    i use a soft kids toothbrush and lightly brush my lip… then i vaseline it every night.

    I also use Tarte Fixation to exfoliate, then I use Murad’s Soothing Skin and Lip Therapy which has a mild alpha hydroxy acid which further exfoliates and keeps it super smooth and lush!

    TBS Cocoa Butter Chapstick at night keeps the flakies away!

    I use an assortment of products – The Body Shop Lip Butters and Balms during the day (I love Pink Grapefruit, Watermelon and Cocoa Butter) and Vaseline at night ALWAYS.

    After lipstick, I apply a layer of Clarins Color Quench Lip Balm over it regularly. It’s a non-sticky shimmery balm that stays on for quite a long time and keeps the lips very soft without too much shine.

    I cannot stand having anything but soft, supple, moisturized lips :) To keep them that way I always gently exfoliate them in the morning with a toothbrush or a loofah pad (the small facial ones you can buy from The Body Shop are great!). Then I moisturize with my most favorite lip balm – Glamourflage in Lotus Lily scent. It is the absolute best and stays on for such a long time!

    I always use some sort of moisturizing treatment before applying lip gloss or lipstick and always moisturize before I go to bed, making sure to lay it on extra thick :)

    My lips are really sensitive and if I forget about them for even an hour they can easily get dry like a paper and the skin is bursting. So my routine is vaseline for night – a lot of vaseline, I’m using it for a few years already and I’ve noticed that the best one to use for night and actually for lip care is the densest one you can find. For the day I use honey cream from Oriflame or Tisane balm – they are almost the same so no matter which one I use but they both taste and smell wonderful and they moisturize lips just like vaseline.

    I probably tested all lip glosses and lipsticks available in Europe and well, I can’t use lipstick much but I found a few lip glosses that work on lips like balm plus look on them great.
