I swear, indoor heat is the most annoying thing ever. I have so many issues with dry skin and dry lips…my entire body becomes the Saraha Desert.
I am always surrounded by tubes of various lip balms, but at night I like to give my lips a good scrubbing with bodyography Exfoliating Lip Duo ($25). Now, scrubbing the lips sounds painful, and I have had some bloody lip disaster with exfoliants that are just too harsh. But I am completely sold on the Exfoliating Lip Duo that we were sent because it gently and effectively removes any dry skin, hydrates lips, and comes in practical, smart packaging.
This is a dual-ended lip treatment with a sugar-based lip scrub on the bottom and a Marula Oil based solid lip oil on the other. It is just an awesome little package with a fantastic lip scrub. First, the lip scrub tastes delicious. Second, just a tiny bit scrubbed onto dry lips removes all dry skin and leaves lips super smooth. Third, you don’t even have to wash it off after – just wipe with a dry towel.
Once lips are wiped clean (I dare you not to lick them first…it really does taste wonderful!) open the top of the jar for the solid lip oil.
The solid lip oil is Marula Oil, a fantastic antioxidant that treats lips and helps to build collagen. This is the perfect finishing touch for hydrated, healthy lips.
Since I started using the Exfoliating Lip Duo every night my lips couldn’t look or feel better. It is a real winner in my book. It’s not just a night treatment – it’s also perfect before applying lip pencil and lipstick.
Check out these tips from bodyography Creative Director and professional makeup artist, Lori Leib, on how to get your fall lipstick to last.
Step 1: Exfoliate and hydrate your lips with Bodyography Exfoliating Lip Duo, this creates a beautiful base for any lip color.
Step 2: Lightly dab off the solid oil from the Exfoliating Lip Duo with a tissue after a few minutes – now your lips are prepped for color.
Step 3: Choose a smooth plum-colored lip pencil like Bodyography’s Rosewood Lip Pencil and line the outside of your lips.
Step 4: Use this same pencil to color in the entire lip.
Step 5: Take a pressed powder, I used Bodyography’s Every Finish Powder in Translucent and lightly brush some of the powder over the lip liner to create a nice matte base.
Step 6: Apply a warm plum toned lipstick like Havana Sheer Lip Stick all over the lips, blot with a tissue and apply again.
Step 7: You should now be left with a long-lasting, sexy Autumn lip!
Be sure to try this, it works! – Lisa
