Day X (?) of blogtember. And the prompt is: Review a book, place, or product.
So I’m here to write about my FAVORITE
I went to a Mary Kay party at the beginning of the summer. Not really sure if I was going to buy anything, but just wanted to hang with some of my friends from work. But I discovered THE BEST treatment for dry, chapped lips. SATIN LIPS by Mary Kay!
And I don’t know about you, but my lips are always dry (ESPECIALLY in the winter). It seems that I could put Chapstick on for days, and an hour later, they’re dry and cracked again. Ouch. (Probably because I’m always licking the Chapstick off my lips… I’m weird)
So the consultant brings out this lip mask. You put in on your lips, and it exfoliates all the dead skin off (like when you exfoliate your face). Leave it on for 1-2 minutes, then wipe off. Because the mask is white, wiping off is KEY here… Otherwise, you look like this:
Follow up with the lip balm, and your lips will be silky smooth for HOURS. AND HOURS. The lip balm is not tinted, but it always makes my lips look super pink… Proof:
You can reapply the balm as often as you’d like, but the mask should only be used once or twice a week. Neither of them are scented, and I usually put the balm on under my lip gloss (although in the photo above, I only have the balm on!)
It’s a little on the expensive side, as far as lip products go. But it’s one of those things little things that just WORKS. I can justify the expense because 1- it lasts relatively long (I’ve used it 1-2 times a week since May, and still have at least half the bottle left). and 2- it works SO much better than everything else I’ve ever tried.
So, THAT is my new favorite product. And now, everyone knows what they’re getting for Christmas this year… Sorry.
I also really like the Satin Hands… Same concept, but for you hands. Obviously.
What is your favorite beauty secret? Also, this was my first “beauty-related” post… Thoughts?
