My picks for great lips! Best lip scrubs & lip prep products for mature lips

I notice that as I age, there are ‘changes’ in my skin.  Gravity starts to take its tool, my skin is thinner in some places than others and my lips….oh my lips.  My top lip is noticeably disappearing (sadness) and my lips are DRY DRY DRY.  I love a matte lipstick but there is no way that I could wear one without getting my lips ready.  Please see below for my product picks to prep your lips for lipstick.  One of these products is actually a 2 in 1-I call it ‘the best of both worlds.’

Lip Exfoliant(s) are absolutely essential to creating a smooth canvas for lipstick by removing the dead skin and flakes.

Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm (or as I like to call it, the best of both worlds)

Clinique Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub & Lip Balm
Lip Scrub: Exfoliates and conditions the skin to remove dead skin cells and dry flakes. It leaves lips feeling soft and smooth, prepping them for lip balm application.
Lip balm: Provides a very sheer tint, instant and long-lasting moisturization, and it comforts, nourishes, and soothes dry skin.

Note: twist off the frosted side for scrub; for sheer balm, twist off the clear side. This product is free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, DBP (dibutyl phthlate), and toluene.
