Makeup Monday: My Lip Care Routine

I have, in my opinion, the driest lips known to man.  If I don't stay on top of my lip care routine, they quickly get dry and flaky (again).  I've found a couple products that have helped me exfoliate and moisture my lips.  If you also have dry lips, I hope this helps!

Lip Care Routine 2

My absolute favorite lip exfoliator has been the Mary Kay lip mask.  I've been using this for years.  I really am embarrassed to say how long I've been using this.  You like to do this after I've removed my make up and before I cleanse my skin.  I apply just a little bit with my ring finger and massage it gently over my lips.  You're supposed to let it set for a minute or two and then wash it off.  It's the perfect amount of time to wash my face and then wash off the lip mask.  They offer it in a set called Satin Lips.  The other product in that set is a lip balm, but it's pretty basic.

After I exfoliate my lips, I apply something that's super hydrating.  I rotate through a few things, but my go-to night lip balm has been my Nuxe Reve de Miel for the last couple of years.  This product is a little pricey, so I save it for when my lips need some extra saving, if that makes sense.  I've mentioned this product a ton over the past couple years, so I won't blab on about it here!

Other than that, I've been using a couple new lip oils from Milani. I found them at Walgreens.  They have a large variety of oils for different uses.  I have the Coconut Lip Oil and the Rosehip Lip Oil, and I like the Rosehip one more.  Both lip oils are very moisturizing, and my lips feel so good the next morning.  I've only been using these at night, since they are a slick oil.  They soak into your lips, but not fast enough for when I'm getting ready in the morning.  They are absolutely perfect as a night treatment.

What do you use in your lip care routine?
