Dealing With Dry, Flaky Lips? This Watermelon-Flavored Mask Might Be Your Solution
I rarely – if ever – forget to apply moisturizer to my face, but my lips haven’t been so lucky. Applying lip balm is probably the skin-care step I skip over the most, which means I deal with dryness far too often.One of my ideas for becoming more disciplined when it comes to moisturizing my lips is investing in products that are simply more enticing to use. I think about it like this: if I hate the way my lip balm smells and feels, I have no motivation to actually apply it. Luckily, I’ve just discovered a formula that I’m almost positive is going to do the trick for me.
Unlike other lip masks, which you are meant to wipe off after a period of time, e.l.f. Cosmetics’ is designed to stay on your pout once applied. It is super lightweight and delivers the prettiest sheen, so you might even find yourself reaching to apply more as the day goes on. But apart from the appealing aesthetics, the formula is also designed with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, watermelon extract, and collagen to hydrate, smooth, and soften the lips.
The day after I applied the mask for the first time, my lips looked and felt noticeably smoother, pillowy soft, and more hydrated. As you can imagine, my motivation to now make lip masks a part of my everyday routine is flying high.
