Everyone wants a pretty pout! Nothing is worse than putting on your favorite lipstick and having it look like Halloween just happened all over again with creepy flakes, ridges, and valleys. Trust me, I’ve been there and it is a total downer. As party season is quickly approaching, it’s crucial we prepare our lips by exfoliating them 1-2 times a week (at least) so we can confidently wear bold lip colors!
Exfoliating and moisturizing will not only make your pucker more irresistible, but it will also help your lipstick apply easier, look smoother, and last longer.
Follow along as I share some of the most effective and moisturizing lip scrubs on the market!
