In the dead of winter, there’s hardly anything that suffers more than your pout; dry, cracked lips have us dreaming of the Sahara, but not in a good way. A smack of good ol’ ChapStick can help alleviate rough, dry lips, but why settle? These lip treatments are life changing, and you and your kisser deserve that.
Bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit, $54
Just like your face, your lips can really benefit from a multi-step routine, so when you’re really in need of a little extra lip love, nothing beats Bliss’ Fabulips Treatment Kit.
Indulge in this feel-good mini-pampering session by starting with the Foaming Lip Cleanser, which gently lifts impurities and any traces of last night’s lipstick (we don’t judge!). Next, buff away dead skin (read: flakes) with the creamy, luscious Sugar Lip Scrub, which gently buffs with finely granulated sweet sugar, almond and walnut shell while it nourishes with jojoba seed and olive oils, shea and cocoa butters and vitamins A, C and E. Follow up with the minty fresh Instant Lip Plumper, which smooths and plumps lips with its cork tree extract and peptide-packed complex, leaving lips full and hydrated.
Finally, seal it all in with the richly moisturizing Softening Lip Balm, which is so good, it’s used in every single facial treatment in Bliss Spas worldwide. Enhancing natural lip colour, this mega balm leaves your pout super supple and drenched in hyrdation. For on the go gorgeous moisture, Stock up on Bliss’ Glossy Lip Balm, which combines the Softening Lip Balm formula with a shot of gloss for a little something extra.

Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Miracle Stick, $20

Crafted into an all-natural and fair trade do it all miracle stick, Sibu Beauty makes soothing and healing dry, chapped lips as easy as a swipe across your pout. Also supporting skin’s natural lipid barrier, this beautifully textured balm ensures your lips will stay far away from future dryness.
