I’m not really one to indulge in an overly complicated beauty routine—I only just started experimenting by adding a vitamin C and colostrum (seriously) serum and retinoid cream into my very basic cleanse-tone-moisturize routine. However, I recently became the owner of a Nugg Intense Lip Boosting Mask ($7) with the hopes of moisturizing every inch of my body for spring, and I’m completely converted. You can officially call my beauty routine high-maintenance now.
Basically, I lather on the super-nourishing, natural mask all over my lips in the morning, or while I’m doing my hair and picking an outfit before going out at night. The shea butter and coconut oil soaks in after a few minutes, leaving my lips hydrated, soft, and plump. Afterwards, my lips look fuller—probably from the licorice root complex–and there’s none of that inconvenient, dry flaky skin that messes up my lipstick.
Nugg isn’t the only brand offering lip masks either; there are seriously effective products available at just about every price point that you can nab online. Keep clicking through the slideshow to shop a few of the best.
