It's been awhile since I brought a product home, tested it, and liked it so much that I wanted to write about it right away. (Mostly because I'm lazy, not because I don't like a lot of them). But I just tried Laura Gellar's Lip Strip for the first time and it is so my new favorite product. Lip Strip is a cooling sugar scrub that you use to get dry or chapped lips back into shape, but even if your lips are doing fine, it's a great way to keep them hydrated and in kissable condition. The formula contains Brazilian sugar (yum!) and cooling peppermint (I LOVE minty lip products) and is a non-abrasive exfoliator. You just dab a little on your lips and rub it gently with your fingertips for about a minute or so. It tastes ridiculously good and you can definitely feel the peppermint because it makes your lips tingle. Then you rinse it off and voila! Smoother, softer (and most importantly) well-moisturized lips. I used it over an hour ago and my lips still feel like I just put on ChapStick. This is going to be one of those products that I keep in the cabinet in my bathroom, which I like to think of as a big honor because only my best and most well-loved products make it in there for easy, frequent access. (I like to think of it as making the Makeup Olympics - it's what all the rest of the products in my hall closet should be striving for).
You can get a Lip Strip of your very own at Sephora for only $16 - less than the price of most lipsticks these days. Totally worth it!
