As our seasons change dry skin and lips will follow. To keep your lips moisturized you need to exfoliate them regularly. Our silky lip scrub uses sugar to gently polish your lips and remove dead skin sells. By removing the dead skin cells your are allowing the moisture to have a better chance to penetrate the skin. Think about in the summer when it drys up and the ground kind of crusts over from no rain. Once it finally rains, the water just sits on top and has a hard time getting through. Your lips (and skin) are the same way. By removing that crust (dead skin cells) you are allowing the moisture to work their magic. The cocoa butter, argan, jojoba, and avocado oils help to moisturize and condition. Contains cera bellina wax, which is more moisturizing and leaves a silky feel rather than Leaving your lips luxuriously soft and moisturized.
