#BeautyHacks - Lip Scrub

Read my previous Beauty Hack by clicking here!

Hey, everyone! Fall is here, and my lips are already drying out. Yuck. It's one of the worst feelings, and a pet peeve of mine. TMI, but my lips chap like no other... and it can get painful!

Thankfully I've found lip scrubs, which are probably my #1 beauty hack of all time. My favorite one is from LUSH Cosmetics, Bubble Gum Lip Scrub.

Pick it up for $9.95. Gently scrub your lips with it. Prepare for perfection. It creates a smooth, even, polished surface so that your lip balms and lip masks can soak right in, and ANY lipstick (yes, even matte-drying liquid lipsticks) will go on like an absolute dream. Can I get a YAAAAAS?

Hey, guys! Today I'm introducing a new series to the blog, called #BeautyHacks. #BeautyHacks is all about using products in unexpected, but super effective ways. Yaaaas! Stretch that beauty dollar.

I looooove GLAMGLOW's THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment, which is as #HolyGrail as #HolyGrail gets for me.

You may remember from older posts that, especially in the winter, I suffer from Sahara Desert face. I have a really dry face. It's a struggle (lol). My husband also suffers from this. It's a match made in the desert!

The Intended Use

This product is first and foremost a hydrating mask. However, to use it as such is a bloody waste of resources, guv'nah. At $69 for a full-size jar, slathering large amounts of it on your face and then rinsing it off probably is not the most economical of ideas.

The Beauty Hack(s)

THE SECRET: This is the most amazing moisturizer, or moisturizer booster out there. Use it as such! This product is the absolute best thing I've found yet to help with dry skin. Nothing else comes close in terms of pure, extreme hydration.

  • No time for makeup? Use this to achieve a flawless, dewy look. Pat a small amount all over your face after moisturizing.
  • Does your dry skin make wearing foundation uncomfortable? Moisturize with your normal moisturizer, then moisturize again with this. Your foundation will glide on top - you don't even really need primer if you have this on.
  • Use this as a spot treatment. My husband gets intensely dry in his eyebrow area, so he likes to use this as a second step after moisturizer in that area.

I recommend you start with the 0.5oz jar for $19, just to make sure you love it as much as I do.
