We’re officially banishing chapped lips

We plaster on a lot of lip products every day. From lip gloss to lipstick in every possible shade, our kisser’s really been through it.
So occasionally we like to take a break from all that makeup and enjoy a reset.
And by reset, we mean scrubbing the absolute crap out of our lips with a lip exfoliator.
Heck, we’re already softening and smoothing out every other part of ourselves with body scrubs and all manner of face exfoliating products, so why stop there?
Here are seven lip exfoliating scrubs for buffing your lips back to their former glory.
M.A.C COSMETICS Lip Scrubtious
This sugar-based scrub is extra sweet thanks to its sugary vanilla scent. Hydrating and nourishing lip conditioners smooth and soften lips, while sugar granules buff away dry skin to prep for the lip colour of your choosing.

ESTÉE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Smoothing Sugar Scrub
The precision applicator tip on this pick helps to gently massage lips, while the smoothing sugar scrub formula sloughs away flaky skin for a luxuriously smooth and plump pout.

By Terry Baume de Rose Lip Scrub
MAKEUP BY MARIO Perfecting Lip Scrub
All natural and edible too, this lip scrub from makeup genius Mario Dedivanovic exfoliates and hydrates for the kind of juicy pout you’d expect to see on Kim K herself. Micro-fine sugar crystals buff away dry skin, vitamin E protects and stimulates cellular turnover, while coconut oil and sodium hyaluronate hydrate.
$34 at Sephora
Dior Lip Sugar Scrub
This interesting formula transforms from a fine, granita scrub to a nourishing balm as it melts into lips. Soft, glossy and moisturised, your lips will never have looked so good.

FRESH Sugar Lip Polish
prepping lips with this sweet addition. Perfect for conditioning rough and dry skin, this formula is packed full of moisture-retaining humectants, and nourishing shea butter and jojoba oil too.

Frank Body Lip Scrub
We usually entrust Frank Body with the near religious task of buffing away our sins in the shower, but the brand wants to take care of our lips too. Surprise, surprise coffee lies at the heart of this lip scrub formula. But grapefruit extract is responsible for that amazing plumping and hydrating effect, while vitamin E nourishes and protects skin.
