Three steps to the perfect pout

Lip scrubs 

Buffing away the dry and dead skin on your lips will leave them looking smooth and polished. I have made using a lip scrub part of my night time skincare routine so that's it's easy to remember. I love the Lush lip scrubs, my favourite being mint julips which is a mint chocolate sugar scrub which you can lick away once you have finished scrubbing at your lips, although this does mean you will be eating your dead skin. personally I think I'll just stick to wiping it away with a warm flannel.

'Night time' lip balm

By night time lip balm I mean a thick, long lasting lip balm that's going to protect and moisturise your lips whilst you're sleeping. my lip balm for bed time of choice is the Nuxe reve de miel lip balm which is a matte, thick balm which sticks around for hours. I go to bed at night and wake up and still feel it on my lips, it has some serious staying power and I wake up with the smoothest lips ever.

'Day time' lip balm

During the day If i'm not wearing lipstick I still like to keep my lips moisturised with a lip balm, currently I have been using the Lanolips lemonaid lip aid which melts into my lips and keeps them moisturised. the product has 1% shimmer in it which gives them a slightly glossy finish which is really lovely and it's also mildly exfoliating due to some of the ingredients, so it also helps keep any dead skin away and keeps them looking plump.
