4 Lip Scrubs and Lip Masks That Work Better TogetherApril 01, 2019
Lip care is essential, and should be an integral part of your pre-makeup routine. The skin on your lips is delicate and requires just as much attention — if not more — than the rest of your face, but many of us tend to swipe on a lip balm and go. Although lip balms help to seal in moisture and hydrate your lips, they tend to do nothing for exfoliation or deep moisturization. That’s where lip scrubs and masks come in; they’re formulated to give your lips an instant boost as well as softer, smoother lips over time. We like to use them together for maximum results, so with that in mind, we’ve rounded up our favorites, ahead:
Formulated with white, brown and blonde sugars, the L’Oréal Paris Smooth & Glow Pure Sugar Scrub provides deep exfoliation while also nourishing lips thanks to a mix of acai, monoi and grapeseed oil. We love to pair this scrub with the Sara Happ Sweet Clay Lip Mask, which rejuvenates lips. Apply a thick pink layer and let the mask work its magic (its consistency has been compared to frosting) — you’ll have smooth, makeup ready lips in minutes.
Fans of the Kopari Lip Glossy will love the Lip Scrubby, which combines coconut oil with fine volcanic ash to gently scrub away dead skin. Use it at night before applying the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, which contains vitamin C, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to create a nourishing, protective film over lips.
When you put these two powerhouse products together, magic happens. The NYX Professional Makeup #thisiseverything Lip Scrub is infused with jojoba oil and leaves lips soft and hydrated. Paired with the fan-favorite Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (it even has it its own hashtag), you’re sure to wake up with soft, supple lips.
If you like a double dose of cherry, then this duo is for you. The sugar-based lip scrub is formulated to buff away dead skin and the lanolin-infused balm hydrates and leaves lips with a soft, rosy hue. The balm doubles as an eye and cheek tint, too, so you can rock a dewy look all over.
