You’ve already been grieving the dry patches on your face, your staticky hair and frozen limbs–but none is possibly worse or more miserable than your constantly dry, chapped lips. It seems that no balm can penetrate the shed-zone. Free your lips from those icky flakes with some of these nourishing lip scrubs made to exfoliate AND condition your kisser, so you can swipe on any lippie sans fear of color collecting in the dried-out corners–which is almost as bad as lipstick on your teeth but slightly more difficult to fix on the fly. Never catch a glimpse of your stained-with-lipstick flaky lips again (only to excuse yourself to discreetly and furiously rub away all evidence) with any number of these top notch conditioning lip exfoliators.
This gentle lip exfoliator from 29 First Crush is packed with grape seed extract, coconut oil, apricot seed powder and shea butter to condition the living hell out of your lips after it’s thoroughly scrubbed them. With grapeseed oil as the main conditioner (also an antioxidant powerhouse), this is like a mini facial for your lips. (29 First Crush Lip Scrub, $10 at Target)

Charlotte Tilbury is the makeup queen of confident and glamorous beauty. Her new Lip Love is a Honey Bee lip scrub that uses natural sugar in a creamy formula with jojoba and olive oil, shea butter, cocoa seed butter and beeswax to hydrate, soften, and protect your lips.

Being that Fresh has a whole dedicated sugar skincare collection, it makes sense that a lip polish would be thrown into the mix. This one mixes a pretty even ratio of brown sugar with jojoba oil and shea butter for an experience that’s thoroughly exfoliating as much as it in conditioning.
