· Sugar Lip Polish by Fresh: $22.50 at fresh.com
You know when your lips crack on a flight or get that gross film towards the corners of your mouth? A teensy weeny dab of this sugar scrub exfoliates all that away.
It's not the cheapest thing ($22.50 for 0.6oz), but we bought one at Sephora 8 months ago and, after using a dab once every few days, we still have half yet to go. A new jar is actually on our own Xmas list right now.
· Tuberose Lip Heal by Aesop: $30, but out of stock on Aesop.com. Head to an Aesop store in Australia, NYC, SF, or LA.
Unlike chapstick or lip balm which coats your lips and easily rubs off, Aesop's Lip Heal is instead a serum nearly instantaneously absorbed by your lips. The roll-on applicator doesn't grease up your fingertips, and your lips feel nourished right away.
Plus, the aroma is of botanicals, so no girly berry scents or vaseline greasiness to worry about.
