I have no idea what is happening to my lips. My face is (fairly) wrinkle free, but my lips are aging before their time! I have tried scrubs, creams, and balms, yet nothing really works long-term. Not even painful dry brushing with a toothbrush! My facialist told me it was from lip-gloss abuse – horrific news, as I’m a lip-gloss addict who never leaves the house without at least six tubes in my make-up bag. I’m trying to wean myself off now (at least during the day). Like an alcoholic, I’ve had to hide most of my arsenal of lip-glosses from myself, just in case the urge strikes.
I’m also trying Kaplan MD Lip Mask, a super hydrating cream gel that you keep on your pout for 3-5 minutes. It gently melts away your chapped skin, and then moisturizes the skin’s surface with 22 certified organic extracts. As promised by the brand, the first few treatments have rendered them slightly smoother and softer (yay!). But I’ll update you in a month, as well, because that will be the true test. In the meantime, I’ll need your support. Maybe we should set up a Gloss-a-holic line? At Neiman Marcus for $48.
