Our favorite chapped lip treatment is the Mamonde Lip Sleeping Mask in Plum Blossom. Find out what sets it apart below. Hint: it contains an AHA you know and likely love!
Fall is coming up fast, which means it’s time to start thinking about swapping out your skin care routine to help prepare your skin for the long winter months ahead. For me, it also means focusing my attention on those areas of my skin that I know will get dry and flaky due to the drier months, like my limbs and my lips.
In general, when you need to hydrate or rehab dry skin, it’s most effective to apply moisturizer on a smooth canvas, hence why exfoliating is such an important step in one’s routine. For the lips, this means using a lip scrub, but lip scrubs can be harsh on the delicate area and also require adding yet another product into your regimen.
All this is to say that when a sample of the Mamonde Lip Mask, a multitasking balm that contains the chemical exfoliant glycolic acid, came across my desk, I knew my chapped lips were about to be transformed.
The formula features plum blossom extract to soothe, shea and muru muru butter to moisturize, and then just enough glycolic acid to smooth lips without irritating them. I have sensitive skin and I can attest that I haven’t experienced any tingling or sensitivity post-application.
After using the mask just one night, I woke up to noticeably softer and hydrated lips. Even the natural color looked pinker and less dull than usual. I still needed to apply lip balm in the morning, but I didn’t have to reapply as much throughout the day that followed.
