At this point in winter, our lips have seen it all. Dry heat indoors, blistering cold outdoors and lots of wind to top it off. Smoothing things over is going to take more than just slathering on lip balm—we’re talking lip scrubs. They’re made with sugar crystals to gently exfoliate flakes away and leave lips soft and hydrated in a snap. Here are three we’ve been living for.

Editors’ Pick: Hanalei Sugar Lip Scrub

The Facts:

  • Real Hawaiian kukui nut oil moisturizes
  • Fine Maui sugar crystals don’t irritate lips
  • Shea butter helps lock in moisture and restore softness

Didn’t make it to Hawaii this winter? No sweat—this lip scrub brings those tropical vibes to you. One editor loves it for that very reason, “I apply lip balm all day every day, but lately it’s not enough. I started using this scrub in the mornings and OMG does it help. The sugar crystals are the perfect size to gently slough off dead skin, and it even hydrates my lips at the same time (thanks, shea butter). Extra points for the natural Hawaiian ingredients that smell like an absolute dream.”
